New research ( from a Spanish team at the University of Cantabria in Santander ) has found some promising results that CBD can relieve depression (and not only them).
According to the main author, Dr. Raquel Linge, it was proven that in the brains of 40 laboratory rodents the non-psychoactive hemp substance – cannabidiol (CBD) - can very quickly and very effectively repress symptoms of depression in mice, like their hyperactivity, worsening memory and reduced appetite for sugar when presented as a reward for a carried-out task.
The research was conducted by, removing a part of the laboratory mouse brain called the olfactory bulbus, which is what causes the symptoms of depression (professionally, this procedure is called olfactory bulbectomy - OBX).
The first improvement was observed after only 30 minutes already, while long-term daily application of CBD led to full suppression of the symptoms of depression and anxiety caused by the reduced need for sugar and worsened behavioural processes. During the research of ongoing chemical processes, it was found that cannabidiol stimulated the production of serotonin and glutamate.
The results of this research were published in the April edition of the scholarly journal „Neuropharmacology“ and with confirmed conclusions of previous research, according to which cannabinoids present in the hemp plant can reduce the symptoms of depression and effectively replace synthetic antidepressants whose very common disadvantage are serious side-effects, unlike CBD.
