CBD For Post Partum Depression

CBD For Post Partum Depression

With increasing awareness around CBD mothers are reaching for CBD for as a helpful tool in their battle against Postpartum Depression.

Rather than directly activate our cannabinoid receptors like its THC cousin, CBD helps regulate our natural endocannabinoids while interacting with other receptors throughout the body. One of those receptors is 5-HT1A, a subtype of serotonin receptors, which is part of the reason we think CBD has shown some "antidepressant-like effects" when ingested (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26711860). While more research is always welcome, with no psychoactivity and less side effects than prescriptions it's becoming more commonly used.
