It’s That Time Of The Year, Again
On November 7th we turned our clocks back one hour. In doing so, we made the sun appear to set much earlier in the day. Daylight savings has its uses, but it can wreak havoc on our brains. For example, if you’re predisposed to it, the lack of sunlight can make your depression much worse. This is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). It’s a medically recognized disorder that alters your mood with the changing of the seasons. Luckily, a new solution has ‘come to light’- CBD for depression!
CBD As A Solution for Depression
In recent times, many scientists have explored the use of CBD as a potential method of relieving the symptoms of depression. A 2014 study indicated that CBD has a positive effect on serotonin receptors in the brain. This means that it may act as a form of anti-depressant. Of course, CBD is not a replacement for traditional medication, counseling, or UV light therapy. At present, it is best utilized as a support for those treatments. If you think that you could benefit from a little extra help, it might be wise to consider trying CBD for depression.
The Pros And The Cons
The fact of the matter is that CBD is extremely safe and carries very little inherent risk. According to the World Health Organization, CBD is completely non-addictive. Any potential side effects are mild (such as dry mouth or fatigue) and should cease immediately if you quit consuming cannabis products. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to determine the right dose. This can be frustrating for consumers, as not everyone reacts to CBD in the same way or to the same degree. Therefore it is likely necessary to be prepared to experiment with the amount that is right for you to achieve your desired effects over a period of several weeks. Always start with the lowest possible dose available and gradually work your way up a higher dose. Once you find the dose that works for you, don’t go any higher than that- it likely won’t have any further effect.
