What Causes Depression?

Depression can be caused by a number of factors. Life-changing circumstances such as the death of a loved one, divorce or redundancy could spark a bout of depression, however, it’s not always unhappy circumstance that set it off. People can be depressed after the birth of a child or the fulfilment of a long-term dream or goal.

There are also other influences including genetics, alcohol and drugs or loneliness.

So How Can CBD Help?

Recovering from depression is a highly individual process. Support is needed to find out what works for you and a proper diagnosis by a doctor is always recommended.

However, CBD has been reported to help alleviate the symptoms.

When suffering from depression an area of the brain known as the hippocampus can degenerate and even reduce in size.

Fortunately, the hippocampus is capable of regeneration and this is where CBD may be able to help us.
