42% Of New CBD Users Stop Taking Traditional Medicines: Study

More and more people are learning about the uses of cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. A new study shows just how much it is affecting the lives of its users.

As Debra Borchardt reports in Forbes:

Forty-two percent of the CBD users said they had stopped using traditional medications like Tylenol pain relievers or prescription drugs like Vicodin and had switched to using cannabis instead.

The survey, conducted by Brightfield Group and HelloMD, spoke with 2400 of HelloMD members to get their data. 

Other notable findings include:
- 80% of CBD users found the products “very or extremely effective.”
- Less than 3% found the product to be “ineffectual or only slightly effective”
- 55% of CBD users were women.

Derived from the part of the cannabis plant that doesn't get you “high” like THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is typically used for health reasons instead of for recreational purposes, and has been found to be especially useful for treating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. A challenging neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s causes a combination of motor and non-motor symptoms — such as tremors, weakness, stiffness, dizziness, anxiety and sleeplessness — that affect daily life. CBD, typically taken in oil form, has the potential to relieve these symptoms, improving sleep, reducing inflammation and more, which can profoundly help the more than 10 million people across the world suffering.
