The Effects Of CBD Studied Scientifically10 August 2020
For years, users of CBD supplements have wondered when the medical world will wake up and officially recognize the positive properties of cannabidiol. Perhaps that moment is near. More and more CBD studies are being conducted, slowly but surely the evidence is getting stronger. At the moment there is even a Dutch scientific study into the effect of CBD in people with agoraphobia and social fears. Curious about the conclusions? Then read on quickly!
Serious CBD Studies By Prestigious Parties
Three autorities collaborate in this large study: Altrecht from Utrecht, GGZ inGeest from Amsterdam and UMCG from Groningen. Their approach is very serious in this eight-week during study. The participants are being asked to do a test before and after each ‘treatment’. In addition they take a blood and urine sample.
Flawless And Thorough CBD Studies
The research is performed double-blind and placebo-controlled. That means that one half of the patients get a capsule with cannabidiol, the other half gets it without active substances. Doctors, patients as well as scientiscs don’t know who receives which treatment. Obviously this is very important to be able to come to objective conclusions.
Studying The Effects Of CBD Against Stress
People with these anxiety disorders would normally get a treatment (sometimes in combination with medication) that slowly introduces them in situations that makes them anxious. These forced confrontations should lead to reduction and eventually disappearance of the anxiety. But this treatment results in very high stress peaks in the patients. Another study that has been done before showed that CBD has a calming effect, so now they started this study. Because the question being asked is if the use of CBD can increase the effect of the treatment.
CBD Can Appear A Miracle Cure
CBD is being used for many purposes, without having real scientific proof. Because in practice it works for people and because CBD doesn’t have any side effects, people want to try it to cure a wide range of problems. The bar is just very low to start using CBD.
Future CBD Research
Still – and we keep on repeating this – a lot of research is needed. Besides, to get accepted in a proper way it is really important that the study is being performed according to scientific criteria. We are very happy that the effects of CBD are being studied scientifically. In this way CBD could possibly help with regular treatments of anxiety and more disorders!
