CBD oil is naturally occurredconstituent of marijuana or hemp which are commonly named as cannabis.
CBD oil consistsof significant amount of Cannabidiol (CBD) and low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)quantities. Hemp oil is not psychoactive because they contain low amount ofTHC. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid constituent of Cannabis sativa that lacks the psychoactive effects of tetrahydrocannabinol(THC). This makes it a safer whileoffering significant health benefits. CBD oil is also referred as hemp oil and CBDrich cannabis oil.According to the clinicalstudies CBD has therapeutic properties which treats a number of anxiety relateddiseases such as panic disorders, OCD, social phobia, Post-TraumaticStress Disorder (PTSD), generalizedAnxiety Disorder (GAD),depression. CBD results in various actions of the brain helping to treatanxiety disorders.

The CBD acts in the body in few mechanisms. There are 2cannabinoid receptors in the human body named as CB1 and CB2 receptors coupledto G- proteins. CB1 receptorsare present in the brain and helps in modulating neurotransmitter release. Thisprevents excessive neuronal activities such as stress, anxiety and depression.Patients suffering fromanxiety and depression have a smaller hippocampus. Hippocampus plays a majorrole in brain by memory formation and cognition.
Generating neurons in the brainis a successful treatment for a patient suffering from depression. CBD has theability of regenerating neurons (neurogenesis) therefore reducing the depressionand stress. Clinical studies shows thatanxiety and stress can be controlled by medications targeted to the serotoninsystems. Researchers found that CBD can increase signaling through the serotoninreceptors faster than selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. CBD is capable of increasing the transmission of5-HT1A, a subtype of serotonin receptor.
This increases the availability ofserotonin in the synaptic space. As aresult brain cells transmit more serotonin signals which reduce the anxietyeffects.
