A groundbreaking survey from Consumer Reports indicates CBD is helping millions of Americans with stress and pain.
In a telephone survey of 4,355 adults, Consumer Reports found that an estimated 64 million Americans have taken CBD and 63% found it effective.
“The majority of people told us they found it effective for the thing they were trying to treat,” Gill told the FDA today.
Most powerfully, one in five CBD users stopped taking prescription drugs, and one-third of CBD users stopped taking opioids—America’s number one drug overdose source.
Americans report mostly using CBD for anxiety, followed by joint pain. In terms of side effects, CBD was making people hungry or sleepy.
