How does CBD work?

The human body has many different receptors. Receptors are protein-based chemical structures that are attached to your cells. They receive signals from different stimuli.

CBD is thought to interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors are mainly found in the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system, respectively.

Exactly how CBD affects CB1 receptors in the brain is not fully understood. However, it may alter serotonin signalling.

Serotonin, a neurotransmitter, plays an important role in mental health. Low levels of serotonin are commonly associated with people who have depression. In some cases, not having enough serotonin can also cause anxiety.

The conventional treatment for low serotonin is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), such as sertraline (Zoloft) or fluoxetine (Prozac). SSRIs are only available by prescription.

Some people with anxiety can manage their condition with CBD instead of an SSRI. However, you should talk to your doctor before making changes to your treatment plan.
