CBD Serotonin and Wellness

Hello from 5280 Farm & Apothecary!


Today we’re going to take a quick look at CBD molecular structure and how it
complements the natural Serotonin transmissions in our brain and bodies. Pretty
mysterious, but maybe we can make a little less so.


CBD Serotonin and Wellness


We saw an interesting comment in a medical article recently that said research on
Hemp and CBD Oil uses was “Stuck in the Weeds”. We chuckled and then
realized how true that is. The stigma of “Weed”, THC laden marijuana, has bogged
down a lot of the valuable research that continues to persist and struggle forward
yielding ever more promising CBD Oil uses.

Does CBD Increase Serotonin?


According to the National Institute of Health, Serotonin is a neurotransmitter
naturally occurring in our bodies that is modulated by CBD. So, whereas CBD may
not increase Serotonin it at the very least “Fine Tunes” it. An article in the US
National Library of Medicine states that CBD reverses both Allodynia (Migraine
headaches for example) and “Anxiety-like behavior. It’s a natural balancing effect,
balancing our bodies’ Serotonin, which can improve mental, physical and
emotional well-being. And if your Serotonin is unbalanced, if your CBD Serotonin
receptors aren’t in sync, it can lead to something a lot more serious.

CBD OIL for Panic Attacks and Anxiety


Here’s how serious. Many conventional Doctors will prescribe an SSRI, that’s a
“Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor” or, as more commonly referred to, an
Antidepressant. And the two most commonly prescribed SSRIs?
PROZAC AND ZOLOFT!
Come on! You don’t want that JUNK in your body! Nobody does!
