Natural Awakenings Charlotte

CBD for Depression in the Charlotte Area

May 28, 2021 06:35PM ● By Chris Cintron-Pecoraro

Mental illness has been on the rise yet unfortunately not discussed enough because of its negative connotation and perception. 

CBD and its widespread benefits are the latest in the search for an alternative and more holistic approach to the use of pharma meds. During these trying times of COVID-19, there’s been an increase in cases of depression, along with other stressors and many people are seeking options to improve their emotional distress.

CBD affects the endocannabinoid system by binding to CB1 receptors in the brain and to CB2 receptors throughout the body, which can benefit the whole body, alleviating mental conditions such as depression and anxiety, as well as physical ailments including muscle spasms, pain, and inflammation.

It comes from the hemp plant, and it has been produced in various ways to enable people to take it in the form most beneficial to them. CBD comes in oil/tincture taken sublingually, topicals which come in the form of creams or roll-ons, flower/vapes, edibles and even products for our beloved furry pets. CBD is a highly suitable product that can help many people with depression and other conditions.
