Cannabinoid oil has become an increasingly popular treatment for pain, anxiety, depression, and sleep issues. It has been documented to be an effective alternative to pharmaceutical medications for joint pain, stress, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. CBD oil is an effective supplement for those that do not want to use traditional pharmaceutical medications.
A 2019 review of anti-depressant effects of CBD oil states that the pharmacology of CBD is complex. CBD has the ability to interact with multiple neurotransmitters that are involved in depression, anxiety, and pain. It induces cellular and molecular changes in these areas of the brain. CBD is emerging as a promising compound for use as an alternative treatment.
