Several studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that CBD may have real, clinical benefits for all three of these and more though more studies are still needed for the FDA to approve CBD for specific uses.
It seems that there are many people who would agree.
As more studies are conducted and more stories are heard, the Brightfield Group projections for the CBD industry could become reality.
Reason #1: Pain and Recovery
Almost three in five current CBD consumers (58.1%) use CBD for aches and discomfort, the most commonly cited reason for using CBD in The CBD Insider’s report.
A little more than two in five consumers (41%) said they use CBD for muscle soreness and recovery.
Among those who used CBD for aches and discomfort, more than two in three of them (67.4%) said that CBD was “extremely effective” or “very effective.”
Seven in ten consumers (70.5%) said CBD was extremely or very effective for muscle soreness and recovery.
Not getting enough sleep can lead to an increased risk of developing type-2 diabetes, having a stroke, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, and premature death.
As for CBD’s potential role in sleep, a study by researchers at the University of São Paulo showed that the cannabinoid had a sedative effect in healthy people depending on how much they took.
