Since the beginning of the pandemic entering the United States and the subsequent shut down, people have been seeking out ways to relieve heightened anxiety. As many as 5% of the general population are utilizing CBD as a result – meaning almost 16.5 million people!
This has prompted healthcare researchers to advocate for greater mental health awareness and better monitoring of coping responses – so this puts CBD awareness at the forefront of the conversation.
How does CBD help us during the pandemic?
Users find CBD helps coping with anxiety over their own health, a loved one’s health, being inside one’s house for long periods of time and the inability to go out normally, disrupted routine, or just uncertainty of the future.
These issues don’t touch on the trauma front-line workers are experiencing, both physically and mentally. Many of these workers find CBD helps with better sleep, which the body uses to restore and renew itself for the next day. It also helps with pain, inflammation, neck and lower back pain as a result of standing on their feet all day.
CBD helps out with the most common mental side affects of the pandemic – panic attacks, insomnia, depression, and PTSD.
It also helps people who would otherwise cope with a more dangerous substance, and the side affects of coming out of a previous drug addiction, such as opioids.
Overall, CBD proves to be the coping substance of choice, besides marijuana.
