Some clinical study found that CBD or cannabidiol could provide social anxiety relief. For studies, researchers looked specifically at cannabidiol to treat anxiety associated with public speaking. Research published in 2014 found that CBD oil had anti-anxiety effects and may relieve it.
Research on cannabidiol oil (CBD oil) is still in its infancy, but there is mounting evidence to suggest that some people can get relief from anxiety. More scientists today examine what CBD oil is and how it may help reduce anxiety symptoms.
Much of the research on cannabis products has looked at the use of marijuana rather than at CBD oil as a standalone product.
Some studies have found that cannabis might help anxiety. Others suggest that having anxiety is a risk factor for recreational marijuana use, or that using marijuana can make a person more vulnerable to anxiety.
People interested in anxiety relief with CBD oil should look exclusively at research on cannabidiol, not generalized studies of medical marijuana. Although there are fewer studies on cannabidiol specifically, the preliminary research is promising.
