CBD, AKA cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid compound that can be found in cannabis plants such as hemp and marijuana.
There are studies showing that CBD has stress-reducing properties, although it is yet to be prescribed widely to treat anxiety.
Dr. Brent Bauer from Mayo Clinic stated: “Although some research appears to indicate that CBD might hold benefit for treating anxiety-related disorders, more study is needed.
“Cannabidiol may interfere with other prescriptions, and it can have side effects, so talk with your health care provider before you take any form of CBD.”
