Cannabidiol, a derivative of the cannabis plant, could prove to be a valuable aid in improving the quality of life, but there are still few studies to support this thesis.
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved a study for evaluate the possible beneficial effects of CBD products - or based on cannabidiol, a component deriving from the cannabis plant known for its positive effects on our immune system, nervous system and skin. The study involved around 3.000 volunteers, who took five different types of CBD-containing botanicals; next to these, a control group, which was not administered any drugs.
Researchers collected data directly from the participants' daily lives and focused particularly on benefits in five areas: general well-being, quality of life, long-term pain, anxiety and sleep quality. The study, which started in August, lasted four weeks and used standardized health indices to collect real and objective data on a heterogeneous population basis, diversified by ethnicity, age groups, geographical area, behavioral habits and styles of life, but also the presence of pathologies or other health problems. Although the full results will only be published early next year, the first data collected show that participants experienced significant improvements in all areas analyzed by the researchers, already in the first week of use of the products. In particular:
- 71% of participants found a 71% improvement in their overall well-being;
- 63% experienced a clinically significant improvement in anxiety;
- 61% experienced a clinically significant improvement in sleep quality;
- 47% found a clinically significant decrease in pain conditions;
- 61% reported an effect within one to four hours of taking the product.

The large scale and intentional heterogeneity of our studies will make these products increasingly accessible, for the benefit of all consumers.
If on the one hand the use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes, as a powerful pain reliever, is starting to take hold more and more (also in our country), however, there are still few studies and data available on the effectiveness of CBD products for the improvement of one's psychophysical state in the absence of serious pathologies. This study may represent a first step towards greater awareness of the benefits of these products and help consumers in their choice.
