Best CBD product for stress and anxiety?


Hi there!
Restoring activity in serotonin pathways—by increasing the serotonin available to bind the 5-HT1A receptor in the brain—is how SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) are thought to alleviate anxiety and depression. Similarly, several recently published studies suggest that CBD does the same. However, CBD does so, not by increasing the serotonin available to bind 5-HT1A receptors, as SSRIs do, but by mimicking serotonin’s action at the 5-HT1A receptor; or, in scientific terms: CBD is a 5-HT1A receptor agonist.


When looking for a quality CBD oil, pill or vape cartridge, make sure that they:

  1. Use CO2 extraction
  2. Practice "Whole plant philosophy", which should preserve many of the lesser known cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in cannabis.
  3. Use organic hemp or cannabis
  4. Clearly labeled bottle, specifying the milligrams of CBD per dose—skip it if it only indicates the total amount of CBD in the product.

I hope this helps!
