Speaking of brain areas, what about cortisol and the key circuit of anxiety (Amygdala, Prefrontal Cortex with oversight from the hippocampus?)

Cortisol is excitatory (in fact, it’s like a turbo boost) as is glutamate.
40-60% of the population has histamine issues and that number only goes up for women and when we’re over 40!

CBD is 100 percent legal in all of the US and, while many people still confuse the two, it’s important to note the difference. CBD is not psychoactive. In fact, it can actually be quite beneficial for your health. As it becomes increasingly popular, more and more people are turning to the plant-based oil to find relief from aches, pains, and more.
