Due to its unique properties and its ability to interact with the brain, CBD has shown to make an impact on a person’s depression symptoms.
Studies have shown CBD has the unique ability to directly interact with serotonin and dopamine receptors. When ingested, CBD influences brain activity and one byproduct is the release of serotonin and dopamine throughout the body.
These reviews discuss using CBD for depression in it’s many forms including clinical depression, bi-polar depression, PTSD and more.
Decreased Depression Meds
“I just wanted to share a couple of experiences I have had since taking CBD oil for about 3 months. I have been diagnosed with clinical depression and have been on meds almost my whole life. I take Viibryd 40mg once a day and Seraquil 150mg at night. I have been able to decrease the Seraquil to 50mg at night and after this weekend, I will be totally off of it.
I talked to my Dr. this morning about decreasing my Viibryd to 20 and he gave me the go ahead. This is HUGE for me. I am excited to be getting off some of the meds. I also had a mild stroke in Jan 2016 and was put on a blood pressure med and cholesterol med. I am totally off the cholesterol med now.
I am also a nail tech and using files and chemicals all day, my fingers get dry and crack. I put the oil directly on the crack and rub it in and the next morning it is almost healed! I also had a sore on the roof of my mouth and put a dot of oil on my finger and applied it to the sore. Instantly, no more pain! Amazing!
I have a lot more energy and a new zest for life! I feel better than I have in years. I am thankful that I found HempWorx CBD Oil.”
Helps With Depression & Anxiety
“Depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger, myoclonic dystonia and chronic insomnia. These are things I’ve been dealing with for years.
In 2012 I was in an accident where I almost lost my life. That compounded the anxiety/ depression/anger that I’ve been dealing with for 21 years. When I was young I wrote stories about the “monster” that lived inside me. I’ve been in road rage incidents that resulted in physical violence. I’ve said hurtful things to people I love the most, in times of rage. I’ve self harmed,attempted suicide and have had a general poor outlook on life. Not sleeping doesn’t help either! Even on 100mg of Trazodone I would go days without sleeping more than 4 hours. Myoclonus causes my muscles to stiffen and eventually leads to tremors, my neck muscles stiffen and I have migraines and ringing in my ears. I’ve been on several different anti-depressants over the years, every OTC and Rx sleep aid ou t there.
NOTHING has worked for me as well as Hempworx CBD Oil. I sleep solidly for 8 hours a night, my muscle pain and stiffness has significantly decreased and most importantly I can now say I look forward to every day. I LOVE life now. I can’ t describe how great it is to feel like this after 20 years. I no longer get angry, I feel completely calm no matter the situation. I’m not anxious when there’s loud noises and a lot of movement.
This amazing product has changed my life! I take 10 drops twice daily of HempWorx 750mg CBD Oil.”
Reducing Bipolar Medications
“Let me tell you about my husband: He has bipolar manic depressive with rapid cycling, depression, and back injuries (two) while working as a farm equipment mechanic. This has resulted as one back surgery that caused secondary issues such as restless legs and constant pain at his tail bone. He has a high tolerance to pain medication, so the prescribed meds rarely helped take away the pain. So, we were looking for something to help ease his and or take away his pain. I believe that we have found it – We received the first bottle of HempWorx cbd oil about two weeks ago.
These are the benefits he‘s experienced:
Less pain at the surgery site (no longer needs the pain meds,) less sciatic pain running down his leg, elevated mood which resulted in his feeling good enough to go out and be more active during the day.
He has gone from having twitchy legs and arms every nights – sometimes so badly that he would have to get up and walk around for several minutes until his muscles would settle down enough he could finally go to sleep – to having nights where his arms and legs don’t t witch at all.
All in all we would call this a successful experiment and are looking forward to more benefits like possibly reducing his bipolar medications.”
Off Depression/Anxiety Meds
“I’ve been taking my 500mg HempWorx CBD Oil since October 21st. Since then I have started to ween myself off my Celexa and Xanax. I have been on these meds for a few years now and the doctors still wanted me on them for another year. Crazy right?!
I’ve been worrying about what the effects of these drugs could do to me in the long run and have been replacing them with the oil, slowly of course, meaning I only take my pills every other day or two days. I take the oil twice a day. I haven’t had any side effects from withdrawal and I know it‘s because of my oil! When I do take my anti-depressant/anxiety meds, I can’t even get out of bed the next day. I feel like a zombie!
I’m thinking I might just quit completely because for one I don’t want to feel that way, and two, I know this Oil is better for me. No panic attacks, no depression. I feel amazing!! Who wouldn’t want to take something organic and natural instead of a man made pill? Why go about your day feeling zombified from pills when there is a much better solution!”
Higher Quality Life
“I figured it‘s time that write my own testimonial here.
I have suffered anxiety and depression my entire life and it was about six years ago that I was diagnosed with clinical depression, borderline personality disorder, PTSD and anxiety.
I have been in intense therapy and started taking Prozac to ease the worst parts of all of it.
However my life is extremely stressful and I have a lot of pressure on a daily basis so it is really hard to remain stable for any given amount of time.
The last few years have been rough to say the least and I was also in a terrible car accident almost twenty years ago that did some pretty serious damage to my back. I won’t take heavy pain pills for that and it got to where I started hating the ones that I bought at the store as well.
I bought some cookies with the oil in them as well as some THC and they worked, but I have never looked to get high in any way. I went and got my medical marijuana card and looked into buying that way, but everything is so expensive and I am on something of a budget.
I was introduced to HempWorx and took the plunge, buying the strongest oil that I could. I felt better within a couple of days with both my pain and anxiety. I feel like I can move without the daily pain and my mind is even. I can deal with things a lot better and get through the things that life throws at me. It certainly doesn‘t fix life or my issues but it makes everything much smaller for me and I can‘t recommend it enough to people. It is worth EVERY penny.”
Depression & Bipolar Better
“Our first testimony. We started the HempWorx CBD oil a few weeks ago. My wife’s DAILY migraines are almost completely gone! She was taking Excedrin migraine 4 to 6 times a day! After a week of oil she was taking only one dose of Excedrin a day!
Her fibromyalgia is so much better now too! She was very skeptical about the oil but now she’s ecstatic about it!
As for me, my severe painful is tolerable now! My Degenerative disc disease and herniated discs are so much better now too! I was taking 6, yes 6 of the 30mg IR Oxycodone a day now I only need 2 to 3!
My depression and bipolar disorders are much better! I‘m weaning off the psych meds! I told my wife this is our prayers answered but she was still skeptical. Warning though: try not to run out of oil like we did! If you do, like we are at this very moment you’ll see how much the oil actually works! We ordered 4 bottles a week ago but with the holidays its late and we are watching the windows for the FEDEX truck! Amazing natural medicine PERIOD! Thanks.”
