CBD for Depression & Anxiety: What You Need to Know

Discover the relevant research & clinical guidelines for treating insomnia

Genevieve Newton, DC, PhD

Anxiety disorders are some of the most common conditions in the world, affecting hundreds of millions of people.

Mental health is multi-faceted, and there are many steps patients can take to begin feeling better...but what if your next patient asks you if CBD could help alleviate their symptoms?

Anecdotal evidence is everywhere, and it’s well-known that many people self-medicate with cannabis. Already anxious and stressed — and now overwhelmed with CBD options — patients need to be educated by someone with your clinical experience…
