For students with generalized social anxiety, a four-minute talk, with minimal time to prepare, can be debilitating. Yet a small experiment in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology found that CBD seemed to reduce nervousness and cognitive impairment in patients with social anxiety in a simulated public speaking task.
Cannabidiol and THC are just two of the plant’s more than 100 cannabinoids. THC is psychoactive, and CBD may or may not be, which is a matter of debate. THC can increase anxiety; it is not clear what effect CBD is having, if any, in reducing it. THC can lead to addiction and cravings; CBD is being studied to help those in recovery.
Does CBD work?
This year, 1,090 people have contacted poison control centers about CBD, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers. Over a third are estimated to have received medical attention, and 46 were admitted into a critical care unit, possibly because of exposure to other products, or drug interactions. In addition, concern over 318 animals poured into the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ Animal Poison Control Center.
But without clinical trials in humans, psychologists say CBD’s effect on depression is still a hypothesis, and not an evidence-based treatment.
While there is hope for treating other conditions with the plant extract, Epidiolex remains the only CBD-derived drug approved by the F.D.A. Most of the research on cannabidiol has been in animals, and its current popularity has outpaced science. “We don’t have the 101 course on CBD quite figured out yet,” said Ryan Vandrey, an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
THC strongly binds to these receptors, but CBD has the opposite effect. CBD inhibits the absorption of a natural cannabinoid molecule called anandamide  , which regulates pain as well as correlates with feelings of happiness and well-being. When anandamide signaling is enhanced by CBD, the levels in the bloodstream increase, and help reduce pain throughout the body.
Summary: Partly Effective – Some academic research proves that CBD can be a digestive aid.
1. Can Relieve Pain
CBD may work as an antioxidant and help reduce oxidative stress, a condition that occurs when the body has too many free radicals making it difficult for antioxidants to neutralize them. Hence, owing to the rising of toxicity in our environment, it’s a comparatively recent problem.
Hence, cannabinoids protect the brain cells damage and keep the brain healthy and functioning correctly. CBD also has an anti-inflammatory effect on the brain.
During bone metabolism, old bone material is replaced by new bones at a rate of about 10% per year  . Cannabinoids help facilitate this crucial process of maintaining strong, healthy bones over time.
