CBD has been found to improve serotonin function in the brain, which happens to be a key component to antidepressants. This can be used to treat seasonal or long-term depression by improving your body’s natural ability to experience happiness.
It is fast acting and positive effects improve over time. CBD is not psychoactive, does not produce a “high,” and it has not been found to produce a dependency for continued use. There are fewer side effects reported with CBD compared to other antidepressants, so this is a safe choice when first starting to treat depression.
