Collection: CBD For Depression

Best CBD For Depression In Canada

An emerging therapeutic treatment for depression, as with stress and anxiety, is using CBD infused products and oil. CBD can promote serotonin in your brain. CBD oil doesn’t necessarily boost serotonin production, but it can change the way your brain looks at its existing serotonin. Since there is a link between low serotonin levels and depression, this is one of the ways that CBD oil can help with managing depression symptoms.

CBD as an antidepressant

Can you use CBD as an antidepressant? CBD is not an antidepressant per sé. It does not necessarily make your brain produce more serotonin, instead, CBD changes what your brain does with the serotonin it already has. This result is similar but not identical to the effect antidepressants have on your brain, except without the potential negative side effects of using medication.

CBD vs. Antidepressants

Antidepressants are notorious for taking weeks and weeks to start working. This slow effect is in stark contrast to using CBD as an antidepressant, which people often report starts working almost immediately.

Antidepressant medications are also well-known for creating many side effects in people who take them. Agitation, mood swings, and sexual dysfunction are just a few of the common side effects people suffer with antidepressants.

Dosage and Guidelines

If your doctor has prescribed you antidepressants, do not stop taking it without consulting with your doctor. In addition, you should consult with your doctor before using CBD as an antidepressant if you are already on medication.

CBD dosage depends on many factors:

-Bodyweight & Condition you want to treat
-Your body chemistry
-Amount in each piece if taking edibles

Since several variables determine the dosage, the process involves some trial and error. Though generally the best way is to start small and gradually increase your dosage to achieve the desired results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can too much CBD affect me negatively?
We make all our CBD products from the oil of the hemp plant rather than the marijuana plant. Because of this, all of our CBD products are 100% THC-free, which means that our CBD oil is very unlikely to affect you negatively, even if you mistakenly take a high dose.

Can I go about my day after taking CBD for depression?
Yes. CBD is unlikely to make you groggy or lethargic, unlike some other depression treatments. For those suffering from depression & it is affecting their sleep, our CBD for Sleep products combined with CBD & Melatonin are a great option.

How long until I should expect results?
Most people who use CBD products to treat depression symptoms report good results fairly soon after starting treatment—though every person is unique.

How many times a day can I use CBD for depression?
Maybe you dislike taking a high dose of CBD all at once. Or perhaps you want to make the effects of CBD last longer. You can take CBD as many times a day as you need to, as long as you don’t exceed the maximum recommended daily dosage. Take a look at the maximum recommended dose on the pack or bottle. If you’re still unsure, try 2.5 mg per kilogram of your body weight twice daily.
