Study: CBD Effective for Anxiety and Sleep Disturbances
January 7, 2019 from The Permanente Journal
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis. It does not appear to alter consciousness or trigger a “high.” A recent surge in scientific publications has found preclinical and clinical evidence documenting value for CBD in some neuropsychiatric disorders, including epilepsy, anxiety, and schizophrenia. Evidence points toward a calming effect for CBD in the central nervous system.
Anxiety scores decreased within the first month in 79.2% of patients and remained decreased during the study duration. Sleep scores improved within the first month in 48 66.7% of patients.
