Big Pharma hates headlines like this.. A new survey, (the largest to date!) on #cannabidiol (CBD) suggests that a growing # of patients are finding more relief from CBD than traditional pharmaceuticals / OTC pain relievers. 💊
Conducted by the #BrightfieldGroup and HellMD and covering 2,400 of HelloMD’s community of 150,000 members, the survey found that 55 % of CBD users were women, while men preferred #THC-dominant products.
The most common reasons people used CBD were to treat #insomnia, #depression, #anxiety and joint pain.✔
“We are seeing an exponential rise in the interest of CBD products from our patient community—particularly among women,” said Solomon. 📈 “While we still have much to learn about CBD, we cannot ignore this one fact; the majority of those using CBD products today receive great benefit. This has the potential for far-reaching consequences.”
Fully 42 % of CBD users in the study said they had stopped using traditional medications like Tylenol, ibuprofen and stronger prescription (and addictive) pain relievers, after successfully switching to CBD, reported Forbes.
80% said that they found the products to be “very or extremely effective,” with only 3 % saying they had felt little to no effect.
“This study is exciting because it shows there is potentially a huge barely-tapped market for CBD products that could improve the lives of many people" 👩💬 said Bethany Gomez, director of research for Brightfield Group. “With further research and public education, CBD could be an effective alternative treatment for many people, particularly at a time when our nation is in the midst of an #opioid crisis.”
