Here at NanoSoluble ™ CBD, we are big fans of science and scientific research. (Go science!) We could go on and on about the importance of water solubility – and we often do – but for now, we wanted to share just a sampling of some of the studies involving CBD-based products that have been going on.
Effectiveness of Cannabidiol Oil for Pediatric Anxiety and Insomnia as Part of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: A Case Report
In this case study from Scott Shannon, MD, ABIHM, and Janet Opila-Lehman, ND, a naturopathic physician at the Wholeness Center in Fort Collins, CO., that was published in The Permanente Journal in 2016, the authors state, “Cannabidiol oil [CBD], an increasingly popular treatment of anxiety and sleep issues, has been documented as being an effective alternative to pharmaceutical medications. This case study provides clinical data that support the use of cannabidiol oil as a safe treatment for reducing anxiety and improving sleep in a young girl with posttraumatic stress disorder.”
In 2017, The World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence reported the following:
“In experimental models of abuse liability, CBD appears to have little effect on conditioned place preference or intracranial self-stimulation. In an animal drug discrimination model CBD failed to substitute for THC. In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.
“CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment of epilepsy in several clinical trials, with one pure CBD product (Epidiolex®) currently in Phase III trials. There is also preliminary evidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for a number of other medical conditions…. CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile.”
Last year, U.S. News reported on research into the use of CBD-based products as a way to ease anxiety and depression:
“One study looked at mice and found that CBD had comparable effects to imipramine, an antidepressant medication, in producing antidepressant-like effects,” they said. “A similar study looked at the effect of CBD on humans with social anxiety disorder and found that the people who took 400 milligrams of CBD had significantly decreased subjective anxiety compared to a placebo. Earlier this year, a study of 72 adults found that anxiety decreased in 79% of the participants.”
If you are looking for an alternative to the CBD oil you are currently using, we hope you will consider trying our scientifically backed water-soluble CBD.
