Can CBD Help With Depression


Can CBD help my depression?

In short…yes!

The World Health Organization reports that depression effects 300 million people per year. What an incredible number right? For anyone who suffers with or has seen their loved ones with depression knows how devastating the effects can be. In its mildest forms depression can disrupt ones ability to deal with work and life on a daily basis. In the most extreme cases it can lead to severe disability and even suicide.  Suicide statistics in the UK are on the rise – suicide rates went up by 11.8% in the UK but more alarming up by 24% for under 25’s and and up 52% for 15-25 year old males. With these frightening statistics, more people are looking at CBD oil.

Early CBD research has shown great promise in aiding those with depression. Behind depression, another 264 million people suffer with anxiety. Not only does depression harm your mental state, it can result in the loss of time, productivity, and general life dysfunction. It can also exacerbate the problems of other chronic conditions like arthritis, asthma, cancer, diabetes, and many other health conditions.


How does CBD oil help…the science.

CBD boosts the endocannabinoid system. ECS for short - is a complex cell-signalling system identified in the early 1990s by researchers. Cannabinoids are compounds found in cannabis which react and bind with receptors found in the ECS system.  The ECS system is responsible for regulating a wide range of functions and processes. Including: sleep, mood, appetite, memory fertility and reproduction. CBD oil has been shown to boost the function of the endocannabinoid system. As the endocannabinoid system is key for regulating mood it has a key link to depression and anxiety. Many studies indicate the CBD capsules may be a potent option in alleviating the symptoms of depression and potentially treating it.


Best way to take CBD oil?



Vaping CBD provides the fastest effects and that’s why it’s a top choice among many CBD and cannabis users. The trade-off with the vaping delivery method is that the CBD effects will wear off faster than with some of the other methods we describe below. Another benefit of vaping is it allows you a lot of control over your individual dosing. You can vape one inhalation at a time and stop once you have reached the desired effects.


CBD Capsules and Tinctures

Not everyone enjoys smoking, even if it is with a vaporiser. Another one of the best ways to take CBD for anxiety and experience reasonably fast relief is with a tincture or capsule. CBD tinctures are in liquid form and taken sublingually under the tongue, while capsules are taken just like a regular supplement or vitamin. Easy! Though tinctures and capsules take longer to start working than vaping, the benefit is that the effects from using CBD with this delivery method tend to last longer. Some tinctures come in a spray form and many users find that to be super convenient as opposed to the traditional eye dropper style pipette. We have many different option on our website to suit your needs.


CBD edibles and gummies.

One of the most popular products on our website is edible gummies. CBD edibles and gummies are an awesome way to get your regular dose of cannabidiol when you’re on the go. Not only are CBD gummies and edibles discreet, but they taste great and are a fun way to find some extended relief from anxiety. Something to keep in mind when taking CBD edibles or gummies for anxiety is that they tend to have the slowest method of delivery. If you’re looking for rapid anxiety relief, edibles and gummies likely won’t provide it as they can take up to 1-2 hours before you feel any effects.

We also have CBD bath bombs. Looking to relax and take a much needed anxiety de stressing bath? Look no further than our CBD bath bombs. CBD bath bombs work much in the same way and are very similar to regular bath bombs, except they’ve got that magic cannabidiol ingredient that takes the bath bomb experience to another level entirely.
