HelloMD and Brightfield Group recently released the results of the largest and most comprehensive study on cannabidiol (CBD) ever recorded. The study polled 2,400 of HelloMD’s CBD users and asked them about how they use CBD and what they think of it. The results found that CBD was mostly used to treat anxiety, insomnia, joint pain, depression, muscle tension, and migraines and that 80% of the users reported CBD products to be a “very effective” or “extremely effective” treatment for their symptoms. Furthermore, 90% of respondents said they would probably buy marijuana-derived CBD-only products again.
What is perhaps even more interesting is that 42% of CBD users have stopped using regular medications and started using cannabis products instead. Only 37% use traditional medicine such as Tylenol, BenGay, or Vicodin along with their CBD, while 20% of respondents alternate between the two. A mere 11% have never used anything else besides cannabis.
Research on CBD still isn’t very widespread, but the results so far are incredibly promising. Cannabis has yet to be widely accepted by the public before more people will become open to it. Given ample amount of time and research, more and more people will come to accept cannabis-based solutions for their pain and other problems.
