How Cannabidiol (CBD) Works for Treating Anxiety.

Human Studies Show How CBD Reduces Anxiety
Brazilian researchers have conducted a small double-blind study of patients  with generalized social anxiety. After consuming CBD, the participants reported a significant decrease in anxiety.

Studies suggest CBD has powerful anti-anxiety properties. Administered acutely (“as needed”), it appears safe, well-tolerated, and may be beneficial to treat a number of anxiety-related disorders, including:
Panic disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Social phobia
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Mild to moderate depression

The researchers concluded, “CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment, & discomfort in their speech performance,” whereas the placebo group experienced “higher anxiety, cognitive impairment &  discomfort.”
