The World Health Organisation states that depression is the single largest contributor to disability worldwide, while anxiety disorders are ranked sixth. 

 

Numerous research studies and patient case studies, both nationally and internationally, have demonstrated that CBD has shown great promise as a treatment for anxiety, improving the lives of many who live with such disorders. It’s stance as a safer alternative to pharmaceutical treatments such as benzodiazepines which can cause dependency, complicated side effects and substance abuse, continues to gain interest and spark new research across the globe.

CBD and Anxiety Research 

 

Research published by NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information), is just one example study that examines the effects of CBD on anxiety disorders. This research investigates cannabidiol [CBD] and its association in reducing the anxiety induced by simulated public speaking in treatment-naïve social phobia patients. The study involved comparing the effects of a simulation public speaking test on participants who pretreated with CBD, and those who didn’t.
An hour and a half before the test commenced, the participants of the study were given either 600 mg of CBD, or a placebo.

 

The Results

 

Pretreatment with CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort in their speech performance. By comparison, the placebo group presented higher anxiety, cognitive impairment, discomfort, and alert levels. These results are linked to CBD’s ability to act on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and social behavior.
Thanks to continued and credible research and development such as NCBI’s above, the natural treatment option of CBD for anxiety and depression is being further researched worldwide with continued positivity. Results from these studies suggest that CBD can in fact provide a safe, powerful natural treatment for anxiety. At Eve Farms, we are committed to supporting and contributing to the research and development in this space.
