Human Endocannabinoid System & Full Spectrum Synergy
The Body's Master Regulator is the Endocannabinoild System ("ECS")
- Cell signaling to maintain homeostasis in body systems
- Based on fatty acids or eicosannoids derived from phospholipids and arachidonic acid
- Internal cannabinoids are created on demand and degraded very rapidly in the cell membrane
- Taking phytocannabinoids is shown to improve mood, flexibility, lessen pain and create body function homeostatis
One 2022 study of 31 young people (aged 12-25) with treatment-resistant anxiety disorders found that CBD improved depressive symptoms (2).
Another 2018 study looked at using CBD to improve mood and other psychological symptoms associated with chronic cannabis use. Twenty frequent cannabis users took 200 mg CBD capsules taken daily for 10 weeks, resulting in improvement of depressive and psychotic symptoms (3).
Meanwhile, a 2020 case report of a teenage boy with multiple substance use disorder, severe depression, social anxiety, and other issues found that CBD improved depressive and anxiety symptoms (4). He took pure CBD capsules for 8 weeks, starting at 100 mg and moving up to 600 mg, after ineffective treatment with the antidepressant sertraline (Zoloft) for 6 months.
Additionally, a 2014 study found that Sativex, a drug that contains equal amounts of THC and CBD, improved irritability and depressive symptoms in 51 people suffering from cannabis withdrawal (5). Although these findings are less relevant because CBD products contain relatively small amounts of THC, they still suggest some potential benefits.
Finally, a 2021 academic book on depression summarized that “preclinical evidence suggests it [CBD] can be a promising new antidepressant” and called for further research (6).
