Why does CBD make me feel so good?

Any cannabis connoisseur will say that marijuana has a never ending list of positive effects. There is such list but the chemicals found in cannabis all vary in use and effect. 

While THC is known to cause anxiety or nervousness, CBD seems to do the opposite actually easing anxiety. In studies comparing both chemicals, researchers find THC increases anxiety by activating the frontal and parietal areas of the brain. On the other hand CBD suppresses the kind of involuntary nervous system response associated with sudden increases in heart rate and respiration. 

CBD gives a relaxing effect and puts those nerves found through the human body at an ease. Thus the "good" feeling! Through endocannabinoid receptors, CBD can also have an effect in regressing swelling or inflammation. 

Considered a non-psychoactive when compared to THC, there is still much evidence on CBD improving your mood. Not saying that CBD will make turn your sad world upside down into a new revelation, but studies have found that it can be used as an anti-depressant and does to an extent give you a state of relaxed.
