Project CBD releases the outcomes of a single of the most comprehensive CBD user surveys to date.

Who is making use of CBD and why?

In spite of the enormous public interest in CBD products, and an endless stream of media stoking that fire, there have been restricted efforts to figure out precisely how and why folks are making use of this darling compound of the cannabis world.

In early 2019 Project CBD began collecting responses to a survey we created to figure out who is using CBD, how and why folks are using CBD, what types of items they are consuming, and whether or not or not CBD is functioning for them. The evaluation in this report (offered in its entirety right here) covers an eight-month period and encompasses more than 3500 responses.

The survey asked about CBD’s influence on six good quality of life measurements: discomfort, mood, sleep, physical function, power or motivation, and the potential to socialize. A majority of participants reported some improvement across all measures, but the most considerable have been in the locations of discomfort and mood.

Of good interest have been the efficacy reports for distinct circumstances. The survey elicited facts about 17 diverse circumstances for which CBD is often made use of, like:

  • alcoholism/addiction
  • ADD or ADHD
  • Alzheimer’s illness
  • autism spectrum disorder
  • brain injury (e.g. stroke, TBI, tumor)
  • cancer
  • diabetes
  • epilepsy and other seizure issues
  • gastrointestinal illness (e.g. Colitis, Crohn’s, IBS)
  • depression
  • anxiousness and other mood issues
  • motion sickness
  • discomfort
  • Parkinson’s illness
  • hormonal circumstances (e.g. PMS, menopause)
  • various sclerosis
  • PTSD
  • sleep troubles

The survey asked what sort or stage of illness the particular person had (e.g., sort 1 or sort two diabetes), and how they felt CBD impacted their symptoms. This observational study validated some effectively-established information about CBD – namely that it has a strong safety profile, and it is extremely productive at ameliorating pain and anxiety. Participants reported considerable improvements in discomfort and mood regardless of the underlying health-related situation. Study Complete Report
