More Findings on CBD, the Brain, and Anxiety

CBD interacts with the endocannibinoid system, whose job is to regulate inflammation, stress, anxiety, and depression. There is real evidence pointing to cannabidiol’s power inside the ECS to improve the issue some shy away from addressing, yet so many face.


CBD is NOT THC. While THC produces psychoactive effects through the activation of CB1 and CB2 receptors in the central nervous system, CBD binds to these receptors at a much slower rate than THC, yielding the activation of similar physiological processes without the psychoactive effects.

Research Shows

It is no coincidence that so many people use CBD for anxiety purposes. In one study, people with social anxiety disorder were administered a one-time dosage of 600 mg one hour before speaking publicly reported reduced feelings of anxiety compared to a control group. Another study involving a 300 mg dosage resulted similarly. In fact, a review of 11 trials found that CBD reduced anxiety when taken one hour prior to events that would otherwise cause the nerves to rise. A summation of case reports found that approximately 80% of subjects given CBD for their condition experienced less anxiety in just one month.

When serotonin levels are low, you may experience increased anxiety. While people with low levels take a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), such as Prozac or Zoloft, some have found solace through CBD instead.
