From the beginning of puberty until about age 50, women are twice as likely as men to have an anxiety disorder according to The Anxiety and Depression Association of America. For years, anxiety has been widely treated with pharmaceutical prescription drugs. According to some published reports, synthetic drugs may be addictive and cause negative side effects.
Although not always conclusive, ongoing research and multiple studies, including the 2019 research published in The Permanente Journal, have suggested that HEMP/CBD may ease anxiety, and mitigate depression.
Additionally, because many published reports have stated that full spectrum HEMP and CBD extracts may bring relaxation to the body and mind, some women are using it for premenstrual syndrome and reporting mild to moderate relief. Some of the most common symptoms of PMS include anxiety, irritability, sleep problems, cramps, and bloating.
Ongoing research and studies will be beneficial in supporting and determining the authenticity of these reports.
