Continuing on in our series about specific CBD research, we wanted to share with a couple more interesting studies we found. If you haven’t read the first part check it out here!
Today we are looking at a study that was done on dogs with osteoarthritis. The findings are quite interesting. “Clinically, canine brief pain inventory and Hudson activity scores showed a significant decrease in pain and increase in activity (p < 0.01) with CBD oil. Veterinary assessment showed decreased pain during CBD treatment (p < 0.02).” For more information on this study click here. We know quite a few people who suffer from chronic pain disorders so this research that was done in dogs is rather fascinating! The decrease in pain and the increase in mobility would be great for anyone suffering with a chronic pain condition.
It's amazing to think about how CBD can be such an awesome and all-natural treatment for our furry and hairy friends that aren't really able to tell us what's wrong with them or how they're feeling. It's awesome to see these types of results in dogs, and it makes me really hopeful for the fantastic results we're going to continue seeing in humans.
Another study we found had to do with sleep and anxiety. Sleep disorders and anxiety disorders are growing at a staggering rate. People are looking for anything that could help them sleep better or have less anxiety. In this study, “The final sample consisted of 72 adults presenting with primary concerns of anxiety (n = 47) or poor sleep (n = 25). Anxiety scores decreased within the first month in 57 patients (79.2%) and remained decreased during the study duration. Sleep scores improved within the first month in 48 patients (66.7%) but fluctuated over time.”
This study really hit home with me - falling asleep at night can sometimes be a struggle. I like, millions of us spend a lot of time in front of screens for work - and knowing that something all-natural like CBD can help me with my sleeping issues without the risk of addiction or overdosage - well it's kind of a miracle, personally!
Hope you found these studies to be interesting and stay tuned for the last installment of this series coming Friday!
