Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common condition that affects nearly over hundreds of thousands of people in the United States. As a form of anxiety, OCD displays a sequence of heightened irrationalities and fears leading to repetitious acts or behaviors which can severely impact day-to-day activities and create relentless hardships.

CBD Boosts Serotonin Levels

Scientific examinations show that CBD indirectly activates receptors in our brain’s terminal stria responsible for producing serotonin – an essential enzyme that regulates how our body physically responds to stress. Studies also highlight that CBD binding to cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1) within our endocannabinoid system produces anxiolytic effects to moderately reduce our levels of anxiety. Results conclude that administering CBD for obsessive-compulsive disorders stimulate these important receptors which creates serene realizations and modifies biological responses to stressful environments [3]
