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:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
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.”
