Robina 7 Day Doctors recommends this video on CBD Oil:

“I think there’s definitely a lot of excitement about [medical marijuana],” says Kevin Boehnke, Ph.D., research investigator in the department of anesthesiology and the Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center at the University of Michigan. “It’s always nice to have an extra tool in the toolbox, especially one that has been used for thousands of years and that people know to be relatively safe.”

Another bright spot? Cannabis’ potential effect on the the over use of Opioides .  Research shows that the combination of cannabinoids and opioids is stronger than opioids alone, which could result in reduced opiate dosages. And a study found that 80% of chronic pain sufferers say they’ve substituted cannabis for traditional pain medications (both opioids and Valium) after experiencing fewer side effects and better symptom management.

An analysis of previous studies concluded that CBD oil is a promising treatment for numerous forms of anxiety, including social anxiety disorder, panic disorder,  generalized anxiety disorder, and PTSD.

For people with anxiety who have gotten no relief from other treatments CBD oil offers a potential alternative solution.

People considering CBD oil for anxiety should speak with a doctor to help determine the right treatment for them.
