cbd compared with antidepressants
❕when it comes to treating depression, cbd does appear to have some benefits over antidepressant medications.
💊 most antidepressant medications can take weeks to build up in your system before they start working. cbd starts to work almost immediately at the right dose.
⭐ cbd may also result in fewer side effects than antidepressant medication. insomnia, sexual dysfunction, mood swings, & agitation are common side effects of antidepressants. cbd has not shown similar issues.
🔖 a 2017 review from the World Health Organization concluded that cbd is generally safe with only mild potential side effects.
👩⚕️ cbd can however interact with some antidepressant medication so always speak to your doctor or pharmacist before starting cbd
⚠️ while cbd may offer some benefits over antidepressant medications, it isn’t a replacement. never stop taking prescribed medication, especially antidepressants, without talking to your doctor first.
⭐ abruptly stopping medication that’s been prescribed to you can cause serious side effects. If you want to stop taking medication, work with your doctor to come up with a plan for gradually decreasing your dosage.
