CBD reduces anxiety symptoms by up to 50% in young people
Researchers believe cannabidiol (CBD) could be an effective treatment for anxiety in some people.
Many young people have anxiety, which interferes with their ability to go about their daily lives.
Treatment for anxiety includes a variety of approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy and sometimes medication use.
A recent pilot study found that cannabidiol (CBD)—the non-mind-altering part of cannabis— almost halved chronic anxiety symptoms in young people.
The study adds to existing research suggesting that CBD could be a successful treatment option for young people with treatment-resistant anxiety.
