Before jumping on the CBD bandwagon, I urge you to read this article. Currently every MLM company out there is promising benefits to consumers which FAR outweigh current research.
First and of major importance, most studies currently are animal studies or human volunteer studies which have very small samples. The very vast majority of research cited are really anecdotal reports. Here is what is currently known CBD may have benefit for childhood seizuresЦ.Currently, one Stanford study suggests that childhood seizures could be reduced by . At present, there have also been reports of only a transient benefit, meaning that this benefit was not sustained over time and seizures returned to their full velocity after using the oil for a period of time.Nausea
and vomiting CBD may have a beneficial effect on nausea and vomiting. In animal studies, CBD had a beneficial effect on nausea and vomiting. Also, in one study of cancer patients, CBD had a beneficial effect on these symptoms.Cigarette smoking cessation. CBD may make it easier to quit smoking when used for one week the non placebo group was able to reduce cigarette smoking by for that one week. Clearly, this is not a very long term study, so hard to extrapolate much regarding this. Anxiety and insomnia CBD may have a beneficial impact on social anxiety and insomnia according to a few studies.
According to a study, CBD could reduce social anxiety related to public speaking. Again, this is a very different anxiety than chronic anxiety faced by most people today, so unknown whether or not it would be of benefit to them or not. One animal study, rats, showed a reduction in a fear responseЦhardly a slam dunk for peopleЦmost studies only suggest that CBD might be of benefit to these populations there is NO proven benefit in the medical literature.
