The Benefits of CBD 

The CBD sector is thriving and is projected to hit $16 billion in the US by 2025. The plant extract is being added to an array of products such as cheeseburgers, toothpicks, and breath sprays. According to a Brightfield Group survey of 5,000 individuals, over 60% of CBD users take it for anxiety, with chronic pain, insomnia, and depression following closely behind. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian West, Bubba Watson, and Martha Stewart’s French bulldog also use CBD.

CBD is the lesser-known child of the cannabis sativa plant, while tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the active ingredient in marijuana that causes the “high.” The cannabis sativa plant is believed to have been used for medicinal purposes or rituals around 750 B.C. THC and CBD are two of the plant’s more than 100 cannabinoids, with THC being psychoactive while CBD is a matter of debate. Studies are being conducted to investigate if CBD has any effect on reducing anxiety, as THC can increase it. CBD is also being studied to help those in recovery from addiction and cravings. Hemp containing 0.3% or less THC is legal under federal law but remains under the Food and Drug Administration’s oversight.

CBD is marketed as a relief for anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder, and to promote sleep. It is touted as “non-psychoactive,” meaning consumers can benefit from the plant without experiencing the high. CBD is being added to everything from oils and nasal sprays to lollipops and suppositories. Clinical trials are also being conducted to administer CBD to children and teenagers with drug-resistant epilepsy, led by Dr. Brad Ingram, an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
