Is CBD Right for You?

You’ve no doubt heard of CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. Back in September, we published a blog about the difference between CBD and THC, and at The Green Solution stores, we get questions every day about CBD and its potential benefits – maybe you’ve even wondered if it’s for you. Scientific and anecdotal evidence has shown that a variety of conditions can be alleviated with CBD, so let’s look at what we know.

CBD is effective in combatting inflammation. An article in Medicine, the journal of Vanderbilt University’s School of medicine, says, “Inflammation ignites a long list of disorders: arthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, blindness, cancer, diabetes and, quite possibly, autism and mental illness.” In numerous studies, CBD has been found to be a powerful anti-inflammatory.

CBD has promise as an anti-anxiety property. A recent article in Prevention magazine on the effects of CBD cites the research of Scott Shannon, M.D., assistant clinical professor at the University of Colorado. “His study, as yet unpublished, found ‘a fairly rapid decrease in anxiety scores that appears to persist for months.’”

Further, a study published in Neurotherapeutics finds that “current evidence indicates CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders.

Not everyone is looking to get high. An article in LA Weekly considers the desires and needs of two segments of the adult population, women and baby boomers, when it comes to cannabis. According to research firm BDS Analytics, “some of the fastest-growing consumer product segments in the last year have been low-dose, CBD-rich products that offer a refined, more controlled cannabis experience.” The article goes on to say that, “Collectively, women and boomers make up two of the fast-growing and most underserved markets…both groups want products that are above all else trustworthy and consistent; they want to know what they are getting and that they can expect a fairly similar experience when trying the product again.”
