The Benefits of CBD
In January 2019, Consumer Reports conducted a nationally representative survey of 4,000 Americans about their use of CBD products. The survey reported that approximately a quarter of Americans say that they have tried CBD. Of those, one in 7 reported using a CBD product every day. The two largest groups are individuals in their 20s-30s with 40% of respondents stating that they have used CBD. The other significant group is those aged 60 years and older. Within this group, 15% reported using CBD but this number is growing.
There are many health reasons people are turning to CBD. The most commonly reported reasons are sleeplessness, pain, epilepsy and anxiety. People have even reported using CBD because of their desire to get away from opioid usage. Joseph Maroon, M.D. noted that perhaps one of the biggest benefits of CBD is its anti-inflammatory properties. As a clinical professor of neurological surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, he and his team have researched the link between CBD and wellbeing. Their review in 2018 noted that CBD users could experience a reduction in anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They also noted the successful use of CBD for seizure disorders and even possibly for individuals suffering concussion.
To date, research studies on CBD have focused on their use for patients with a history of seizures. Researchers findings were so strong that the FDA approved the prescription CBD Epidiolex for the treatment of individuals experiencing chronic epilepsy. For the broader marketplace, the Consumer Reports study found that 75% of those who reported taking CBD stated that if was effective for the condition they took it for. Of those, 48% reported that it was extremely effective. Most respondents (over 75%) reported that either no or very limited side effects. This self reporting that side effects are very uncommon is promising for those looking for new solutions for health problems. Further, in the Consumer Reports survey, 22% of respondents who took CBD reported that it allowed them to use it rather than prescription or OTC drugs. One third of those stated that they used CBD to replace opioids. This last finding is driving new study in to whether CBD, either alone or in combination with THC, can be used to combat the ongoing opioid crisis in the United States.
Physicians do recommend considering the amount of CBD in any product that consumers consider purchasing. Mitch Earleywine, Ph.D, a professor of psychology, University of Albany, State University of New York, notes that many products will site the amount of CBD in each package rather than in each dose. Also, different products deliver different levels of CBD. For instance, capsules contain a precise amount of CBD in a dose while the amount of CBD a user receives from creams and oils differ depending on how often the consumer uses the product. It is recommended that consumers begin with lower levels of CBD, such as 10 mg. After using the product for a week or two, this dosage amount can be increased if needed. Individuals should not exceed 100 mg a day without consulting their medical care provider.
