5-HT1A is coming under subtype of serotonin receptor which is actually more important. Anxiety, Stress, and Depression occur due to the decrease in the production of these serotonin receptors. That’s why companies created drugs which are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). These SSRIs like Prozac and Zoloft stops the re-absorption of serotonin in the human brain.

By this activity, it increases serotonin space and makes it more available. CBD also does the same thing as SSRIs, in fact, more effective and faster than drugs.
