Anxiety disorders afflict some 40 million adults in the United States according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA). That makes this category which includes generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorders the most common mental health illnesses in the nation.
Cannabidiol is a compound derived from hemp plants. It seems to help people with anxiety reducing symptoms with few or no side effects. Research on cannabidiol oil (CBD oil) is still in its infancy, but there is mounting evidence to suggest that some people can get relief from anxiety.
A recent study involving 72 participants published in January 2019 examined whether CBD can help improve anxiety and sleep quality. It found a decrease in anxiety symptoms in 57 of the study participants and concluded that CBD may hold benefit for anxiety-related disorders. But, again, the researchers indicated that larger, controlled clinical research studies are needed to confirm this initial finding.
People who want to experience less anxiety in their lives may choose to seek a natural remedy they can purchase over the counter that provides anti-anxiety effects. CBD is one such option.
According to the Mayo Clinic, a major cause for concern is the unreliability of the purity and dosage of CBD in products. A recent study of 84 CBD products bought online showed that more than one-quarter of the products contained less CBD than labeled. In addition, THC was found in 18 of the products.
