According to the Anxiety and Depression Society of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S, affecting over 40 million people. More than 18% of the population experience anxiety or depression in form or another every year. Even though anxiety disorders are treatable, conventional therapy doesn’t work for everyone and even when it does it is commonly accompanied by a host of unwanted side-effects. If left untreated, it could lead to more serious problems. Studies have shown that CBD can be able to reduce the level of anxiety and stress, especially among those people suffering from PTSD, OCD, and Social Anxiety Disorder. You can also use it to reduce the discomfort surrounding public speaking. CBD oil may help reduce depression by activating glutamate cortical and serotonergic signaling. These two components are usually lacked when an individual is experiencing stress or depression.
