Rapid mood swings are caused by neurochemical irregularities in particular areas of the brain. Endocannabinoid system and its receptors are widely present in the limbic system of our brain. The limbic system is the region responsible for regulating emotional conditions like depression, stress, and anxiety.
Studies have shown that endocannabinoids are directly responsible for the regulation and release of monoamine neurotransmitter, which is vital for mood regulation. The chemical imbalance that causes mood swings is directly related to the endocannabinoid deficiencies; therefore, CBD can be very effective in treating the mood swings.
Studies have found that CBD repairs the abnormalities of CB1 receptors and reduces the abnormal brain function in the areas associated with psychosis. Clinical trials are needed to validate the preliminary data, but the future of CBD in treating mood disorders looks promising.
