Anxiety, as an adaptive response, actually can help us deal with threats to our safety and welfare. These responses help us recognize and avoid potential threats and help motivate us to take action to work harder, pay bills, improve relationships, and better our situation. However, if we cannot manage these natural responses effectively, they can become completely opposite and impact our work and relationships. Even they can lead to clinically diagnosable anxiety-related disorders.
Some drugs for treating anxiety-related disorders on the market may be effective for many patients, but certain patients don’t see much improvement, or they can't tolerate the side effects. Moreover, tranquilizers like Valium and Xanax can be highly addictive. Clearly, alternative treatments are wanted. Could CBD, the non-intoxicating component in cannabis provide a viable alternative for currently available anxiety medications? Quite possibly!
In recent years, CBD has become more and more popular with consumers, clinicians, and scientists. Numerous animal studies and evidence from human experimental and clinical studies suggest CBD has powerful anti-anxiety properties. It may be beneficial to treat a number of anxiety-related disorders, including panic disorder, social phobia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and mild to moderate depression, etc.
CBD can exert several actions in the brain that explain why it could be effective in treating anxiety. Drug companies usually develop selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac and Zoloft to treat depression or anxiety. SSRIs can work by blocking the reabsorption of serotonin in the brain, which increases the availability of serotonin in the synaptic space. This helps brain cells transmit more serotonin signals to reduce anxiety and boost mood in certain cases.
Similar to SSRIs, CBD may boost signaling through serotonin receptors. More and more research and studies on animals and humans have provided evidence that CBD has the potential to play a significant role in treating a series of anxiety-related disorders and its demonstrated efficacy and highly favorable safety profile make it a viable alternative or adjuvant therapy to currently available pharmaceuticals.
