Since all cannabinoids are Schedule I drugs in the US and Schedule II in Canada, you have to jump through a bunch of hoops and red tape to get your hands on it for research.
Research is emerging and more comprehensive studies are needed, but science is getting there. Here’s just a smattering of the things scientists were able to demonstrate that CBD does:
Inhibited lung cancer invasion and metastasis (spread)
In larger doses (160mg), it helped participants you sleep — even in people who typically suffer from insomnia.
Higher doses decreased anxiety during public speaking.
Decreased social anxiety by regulating the amygdala, a part of your brain that controls fear.
Substantially improved symptoms of schizophrenia.
Showed antioxidant activity. A test tube study showed that CBD protected neurons from inflammation and oxidative stress better than both vitamin C and vitamin E, and it prevented oxidative damage to DNA associated with colon cancer.
Showed potential as a neuroprotective. CBD decreased brain damage after stroke in rats.
There’s more — anxiety, neurodegenerative diseases, autoimmune conditions — CBD is worth a look in any disease process that’s rooted in inflammation (which is most of them).
