How Cannabis Can Help

THC activates CB1 receptors in the amygdala and hippocampus, calming the fear and initiating a sense of wellbeing. CBD promotes Anandamide - the natural bliss compound, helping ease stress at CB1 in the brain. CBD directly activates the Serotonin (5Ht1A) receptor, which helps create and retain Serotonin just like the anti-anxiety / antidepressant effects of SSRIs.
