A study conducted by youth mental health service Orygen has found that medicinal cannabis can halve the symptoms of chronic anxiety in young people.
A small trial was conducted on around 30 people aged 12-25 who had anxiety and were resistant to treatment. After 12 weeks, the cannabidiol medications delivered an average 42.6% reduction in anxiety severity.
Emyria has been monitoring the effects of CBD for thousands of patients and is developing an over-the-counter treatment for the symptoms of mild anxiety (psychological distress).
The study was published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
