Use of Cannabidiol for the treatment of Anxiety

A macro-analysis of 49 different research papers (focusing primarily on animal studies) on the effects of CBD regarding multiple anxiety or stress-oriented disorders, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, and Social Anxiety Disorder to name a few.

Preclinical evidence demonstrates CBD’s efficacy in reducing anxiety behaviours relevant to multiple stress and anxiety based disorders. Early stage human experimental findings support these preclinical results, as well as demonstrating an excellent safety profile.

While more research needs to be carried out, the early stage findings seem promising with regards to using CBD as an anxiolytic agent.
