Almost a quarter of Americans face the debilitating effects of anxiety and depression. These conditions can have a devastating effect on patients and their families, and can disrupt a person’s ability to function in social and work environments.
While some prescription medications have proven to be effective, they’re not the perfect solution for every patient. It can take a while to find the right balance of medication for each individual. Medicine, coupled with therapy, meditation, yoga and therapeutic massage has brought relief to many.
Now some studies are showing promising results with CBD. It improves the activity in the endocannabinoid system, giving some people noticeable relief from their anxiety and depression. This is a time when you really want to check in with your doctor to discuss all your options. With all the emerging research, even mainstream doctors are paying attention to the benefits of CBD.
