How Hemp Oil Helps Treat Depression
Experts believe that hemp oil’s potential benefits for people with depression are related to its positive effect on serotonin receptors in the brain. Low serotonin levels are likely connected to depression. Hemp oil doesn’t necessarily boost serotonin levels, but it may help your brain’s chemical receptors be more receptive to the serotonin that’s already in your system.
When it comes to treating depression, hemp oil does appear to have some benefits over many antidepressant medications. Namely, hemp oil doesn’t have any side effects, whereas many depression medications can take weeks to start working and hamper their users with nasty side effects, like insomnia, mood swings, agitation, weight gain and sexual dysfunction. With hemp oil, once a few drops are taken under the tongue, the user begins to feel its effects within minutes. There are no side effects, and there are even specific varieties to achieve specific effects. For example, our Day And Night Combo Pack combines the energy and mood-boosting powers of our Better Daze hemp oil drops and the relaxing, sleep-inducing powers of our Moon Drops hemp oil to help you feel more stable, no matter the time of day.
If you’re trying High Moon Health as a treatment for your depression, we specifically recommend the combo pack as it will give you a nice, uplifting feeling for the day and help you sleep more soundly at night.
