The popularity of CBD as a multifunctional remedy to various conditions extends to treating depression. The symptomatic manifestations of depression such as cognitive impairment, loss of appetite, fatigue, and insomnia are quite tricky to address, but there are substantial discoveries about the potential of CBD to relieve these symptoms. Mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety disorders affect physical health, social life, and general well-being of patients but thankfully, CBD has displayed a positive effect in the treatment of these conditions.

Researches have described the beneficial effect of CBD in the treatment of depression, indicating the positive interaction of CBD with the serotonin receptors in the brain. Serotonin influences a range of bodily functions including emotional state, happiness, and feeling of well-being. By keeping the serotonin levels in the body balanced, CBD helps to relieve symptoms of depression. Also, CBD has demonstrated antidepressant properties, anti-anxiety effects, and in a more recent study, anti-stress effects to help relieve depression. Also, it has been shown that CBD works without triggering the endocannabinoid receptors of the brain, indicating CBD as a less addictive treatment for depression.

Comparatively, CBD has displayed a number of benefits over conventional antidepressant medications. The beneficial characteristics of CBD over antidepressants include faster, sustained antidepressant effect, and no side effects.

While CBD has many advantages over antidepressant medications, it is advised to not replace medications with CBD without consulting your physician. This is simply because the patient might suffer some side effects if existing medication is interrupted suddenly. Ideally, patients must work with their physicians in order to formulate a proper plan, gradually reducing the dosage as required.
