Users of CBD have promoted this for some time and it has just been backed by the results of a medicinal trial, published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Young adults with a rare type of epilepsy, Dravet syndrome, found that those who received CBD saw their seizure frequency reduce by 38.9%.
In addition, CBD is said to combat anxiety and it’s used in the treatment of a number of mental health conditions. Research by the University of São Paulo revealed the use of CBD can reduce social anxiety disorder. it can also be used to treat sleep issues, such as insomnia.
Early research suggests CBD may aid cancer treatment, as it appears to have an anti-tumour effect, increasing the death of tumour cells in leukaemia and colon cancer, and preventing the spread of cervical cancer cells. Although most CBD and cancer studies are pre-clinical, the early findings are positive.
Similarly, it is believed CBD may reduce the risk of developing diabetes, according to a study published in Neuropharmacology, which suggests it may help to stop diabetes developing in people prone to the condition.
