Anxiety and depression are complex mental health conditions that can significantly impact a person's emotional, physical, and social well-being. While they are distinct disorders, they may share certain symptoms and often coexist in an individual.

  • Anxiety: Anxiety involves excessive worry, fear, or nervousness, which can be overwhelming and interfere with daily life. Symptoms may include restlessness, rapid heartbeat, elevated blood pressure, sweating, and difficulty concentrating.

  • Depression: Depression leads to persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest in activities once enjoyed. Symptoms may include low energy, changes in appetite, sleep disturbances, and thoughts of self-harm.

Herbal Medicinal Plants for Anxiety and Depression Relief

Herbal medicinal plants have been revered for their potential benefits in supporting various aspects of well-being. People have reported positive experiences with certain herbs for anxiety and depression relief. It is essential to consult with an experienced herbalist, such as Donna Troy Cleary to discuss individual health concerns and explore suitable herbal options that may help provide support.

  • CBD Spiral Herbal Remedies' CBD is Hemp derived and 100% Organic. We have it lab-tested and these results are posted front and center on the site. (Be wary if this is not the case.)

How Does CBD work? Humans produce chemicals in our bodies called Endocannabinoids. We have receptors for these chemicals on many parts of our body and for use with Anxiety and Depression, the receptors are on our Nervous System. When we ingest cannabis (this includes Hemp and Marijuana), it binds with these receptors. CBD has a calming effect on the Nervous System and can be helpful for relieving the symptoms of Anxiety and Depression.

CBD can also be helpful with Pain, Sleep, Oxidative Stress, and inflammation.

  • Ashwagandha Also 100% Organic, this plant has been used in India as Ayurvedic Medicine for over 3000 years.

How does Ashwagandha work? It is an adaptogenic herb and its stress-relieving effects may occur via its ability to moderate the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis, which is excreted during the fight or flight response.

Ashwagandha has also been used traditionally as a Brain Tonic (with neuroprotective and anti-neuroinflammatory properties), a Reproductive Tonic (it can help increase testosterone in men and increase estrogen in women), and as an agent for lowering blood sugar (which is raised during the fight or flight response)

  • Passionflower: An Amazonian flower used by Indigenous peoples for thousands of years.

Passionflower is known for its potential calming and anxiety-reducing effects. It can increase GABA levels in the blood, a neurotransmitter that calms the Nervous System.
