With COVID-19 on our minds, CBD’s place in the pandemic may have fallen by the wayside. Now is the perfect time to brush up on all the benefits our products have to offer.
Used by around 14% of America, cannabidiol holds importance to those who suffer from anxiety, stress, seizures, chronic pain and many other conditions. As its effect on people varies, hemp-derived CBD can help you manage symptoms just as well as, if not better than, prescribed medication.
What People Say About CBD
Anxiety: Individuals swear that cannabidiol, which can be taken in different forms (liquid, softgels, capsules, powders, gummies, etc.), helps calm their everyday worries. Others rely on it to manage some more serious issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A 2015 Neurotherapeutics report observed findings from clinical trials, lab research and other studies. The data collected strongly indicates that CBD could have soothing effects on people with generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD and social anxiety.
Seizures: Cannabidiol shows a lot of promise for children in particular who experience seizures. In one large study on CBD in children with epilepsy, the compound reduced the frequency of seizures by more than half. In 2018, Epidiolex became the first cannabis-derived drug to be approved by the US FDA. It’s been found to help control seizures in children who have rare and severe forms of epilepsy. Sativex is another CBD medication in the process of being FDA approved.
Pain: There is no doubt that CBD has some agency in alleviating chronic pain. Its anti-inflammatory properties have been proven to lessen joint inflammation, which explains why so many people use it to combat arthritis complications, while other individuals are using cannabidiol as a natural approach to treat back pain.
