Health Conditions You Can Treat with CBD Oil

CBD interacts with serotonin receptors throughout the body, giving it the potential to treat many conditions

How CBD Works

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non psychoactive compound derived from marijuana or hemp

Ways to take CBD oil:
Take as a pill or daily supplement for anxiety or chronic pain
Use a lotion on the skin for localized pain or inflammation
Apply a tincture inside of the mouth for insomnia or depression
Vape through an e-cigarette or vape pen for anxiety or nausea

Taking CBD won’t get you high, but it might help you feel better

CBD Increases Serotonin
Serotonin is one of the most common neurotransmitters in the human body
Effects of serotonin
Inhibits fear and anxiety
Controls blood pressure
Limits cortisol, the hormone linked to stress
Moderates oxytocin, the “happy” hormone
Regulates human growth hormone
CBD binds with serotonin receptors to trigger these effects, BUT doesn’t signal the body to slow production ㄧ More serotonin will continue to be created and released

Low serotonin is often caused by stress, leading to a downward cycle of anxiety and disrupted sleep

Anxiety & Depression
More than 40 million adults have a diagnosed anxiety disorder in the U.S.
About 14.8 million American adults have been diagnosed with major depression

CBD can help to:
Reduce stress
Reduce social anxiety
Treat depression

Sleep Disorders
30% of adults experience some type of insomnia
35% of adults get less than the recommended 7 hours of sleep per night
CBD can help to
