I have been taking CBD for over a year now and have found it effective for a lot of my health conditions and symptoms. However, it’s not a miracle cure and there are some symptoms it hasn’t helped. I was interested to find out if other people had had similar experiences, so I conducted a survey. If you are new to CBD you might benefit from reading this post first: https://m.facebook.com/story.php…

In the survey, I asked what conditions the participants suffered from, what symptoms were improved by CBD and what symptoms had no improvement.

Conclusion

It’s encouraging to see how many conditions can be effectively treated with CBD. As you can see, there are some conditions on more than one list, which just goes to show how individual we are. However, there are a few that appear more often in the ‘no improvement’ or ‘slight improvement’ list, which may suggest CBD is not as effective for these conditions (Tinnitus, migraines, nerve pain, Fibromyalgia Flare pain and social anxiety) This could also be explained by saying the participant hasn’t yet found a CBD product with the right levels of cannabinoids and terpenes, or the right dose to be effective.

There are a handful of conditions which appear numerous times on the ‘effective’ list. (Anxiety, Chronic pain, Fibromyalgia pain, Fatigue, Joint pain, Insomnia) It could just be because these conditions are more common, but it’s encouraging to see how effective CBD can be for treating conditions that many of us suffer from, and for which conventional medicine can sometimes be ineffective.

Please note this is not a complete list of all the conditions CBD can treat, just the ones reported by the participants of my survey.

While conducting my survey I came across some positive and inspiring success stories, which I would like to share with you. Please click on the link to read these inspiring stories:https://m.facebook.com/story.php…
