An elephant never forgets to take their CBD
Posted by Heather Brady on
Depression and anxiety disorders are common mental health conditions can have lasting effects on a person’s health, social life, ability to work, and overall well-being.
While doctors often prescribe pharmaceutical drugs to help a person treat or manage depression, many of these drugs have difficult side effects, such as mood swings, sleeplessness, sexual dysfunction, and compound the problem instead of helping solve it.
In published research from a recent medical journal, CBD appears to have a positive interaction with serotonin receptors in the brain, which impacts a persons mental state and feelings of well-being or happiness. Keeping serotonin levels balanced is often a key therapy for people with depression, and CBD is a proven method of positively impacting serotonin levels. These studies are now being expanded to the zoological field.
Two stressed African elephants are to be given medical cannabidiol -- CBD -- in an effort to help them relax and even temperament and shows of aggression at a zoo in Poland.
Warsaw Zoo announced on its website Thursday that it would conduct the experiment, which it hopes will improve the mood and lower cortisol of the animals.
"We have started a project during which we will check the effect of CBD hemp oils on the mood of our animals," the statement read.
We will keep our CBD connoisseurs updated on the progress of these two elephants and continue to share the progress we’re making as a society to recognize the endless benefits of cannabis. #karmanotpharma
