Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD Overview

In the United States, over 200,000 people cope with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) each year. Life can be increasingly challenging with irrational thoughts and fears leading to obsessive behaviors. OCD typically intensifies acts of panic or necessity which can turn the most basic tasks into an overwhelming burden. OCD symptoms tend to start off gradually but can vary throughout a person's life.

CBD Effects of Various Receptors

While there is no cure for OCD, leading research has found that CBD is a viable option for reducing anxiety and boosting sensations of well-being. The stresss relief provided by CBD is moderated through serotonin receptors of the stria terminalis. These receptors serve as a necessary component in the regulation of your body’s stress response. Additionally, these studies link CBD to induce calming perceptions by activating receptors significant to adjusting emotional reactions to stress.

Case Developments

Clinical trials and research are still ongoing; however, evidence strongly suggests the use of cannabinoids to change emotional responses and act as an effective anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) agent. Reports indicate that a constant, low-dose regimen of cannabinoids activates the CB1 brain receptors in a manner that promotes anxiolytic effects. With the use of partial, low-affinity cannabinoids such as CBD oil, physicians could ensure patients with OCD a high therapeutic index treatment that offers mood enhancement and anxiolytic stabilization [52].
