Anxiety Disorders

  • 13th Oct 2021

Doctors have often advised people with chronic anxiety to avoid cannabis, as THC can trigger or amplify feelings of anxiousness and paranoia. CBD, on the other hand, may help reduce anxiety.

A 2019 study showed that CBD significantly reduced symptoms in mice with anxiety.

Authors of a 2015 review had previously suggested that CBD might help reduce anxiety-related behaviours in people with the following conditions:

  • PTSD
  • general anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • panic disorder
  • social anxiety disorder
  • obsessive-compulsive disorder

The authors noted that current treatments could have adverse effects, and some people stop using them for this reason. However, there is no evidence to confirm that CBD has significant adverse effects.
