Depression is a state of emotional feelings of low mood, sadness, and loss of hope. People suffering from depression can have other symptoms such as poor appetite, fatigue, loss of interest in everyday activities, and inability to fall asleep. This illness is far from uncommon, and needs to be given the attention it deserves.
There are many antidepressants that treat mild, and chronic depression, but most of these change how the body's hormones affect the brain, and are highly addictive with many side effects. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the best remedies for psychosis and effective in treating depression. Unlike the pharmaceutical medications, CBD oil has no side effects, and works immediately. A study published in April of this year highlighted the rapid, antidepressant qualities of CBD. Research published in Neuropharmacology found that CBD is fast acting, and continues to work over time while pharmaceutical antidepressants can take weeks to work. With CBD, anxiety, and depression symptoms were alleviated faster than any know antidepressant on the market. The effects of CBD were comparable to a common tricyclic medication imipramine, also known as Tofranil. The evidence for CBDs success is overwhelming, while THC also has potent antidepressant effects, the high from THC may not be desirable to everyone. CBD is discrete, and 100% non-psychoactive.
Cannabidiol on its own will not cure depression, it's another form of medication that can help you manage with the symptoms, and function in everyday life. Treating depression requires a multifaceted approach which in includes a healthy diet, and exercise.
