Sometimes as the season changes, your mood does, too. You may be wondering what is wrong. This is a condition known as Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD for short. New studies show that CB can be effective in treating this disorder.
SAD is caused by an imbalance in the endocannabinoid system. This system is made up of neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors called “endocannabinoids.” These receptors help to regulate mood and sleep. Some people believe that SAD is caused by a lack of sunlight and Vitamin D. The lack of sunlight causes the body to produce higher levels of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep.
According to current studies using CBD is promising in treating SAD by attaching itself to the endocannabinoid receptors. This decreases your melatonin levels, while increasing your serotonin levels. Serotonin is a hormone in the brain that regulates mood. When your serotonin levels decrease, it can cause depression and anxiety. CBD helps to prevent this from happening.
