The latest in the fight against anxiety and mood disorders is available with CBD medicine.
We talked to a doctor who says the effects are “minimal” and who says “it’s the same medication that’s been around for a long time.”
We also spoke with a researcher who says CBD is safe for a variety of conditions.
We asked the following questions to Dr. Joseph Pacheco, a neurologist who specializes in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD and bipolar disorder:What are the side effects of CBD?CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis, but it is more potent than THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
Dr. Pachecon told us that it has “a mild sedative effect on the body.”
It also has a few neuroprotective effects.
Dr. Pachesco also explained that CBD can reduce anxiety and anxiety-like behaviors in people with PTSD.
He added that CBD doesn’t affect your body’s endocannabinoid system, which controls many of the body’s biological functions, including sleep, appetite and mood.
Dr Pachecos prescription doesn’t include a doctor’s prescription.
But the American Psychiatric Association and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommend using CBD as part of a standard treatment plan for depression, PTSD, anxiety and other conditions.
CBD also has been used in some trials for anxiety, anxiety-related symptoms and epilepsy.
Dr Robert Wood, who teaches sleep at the University of California, Davis, told us CBD has a “significant safety profile” that “may have positive effects in some cases.”
Dr Wood said the best way to take CBD is “with a physician who has a medical background in sleep medicine, who is comfortable taking a long-term, daily dose.”
He added, “You don’t need to be an expert on sleep medicine to use CBD.”
Dr. Wood also said CBD is generally safe.
He told us, “It’s a medication that you take in low doses, and it has a low risk of overdose.”
But he added, “[CBD] is not a cure-all.
You don’t want to take it when you’re in a psychotic state or in an agitated state.”
And Dr. Wood cautioned that “cannabinoids can be addictive.”
Dr Wood said CBD may help relieve symptoms of anxiety or depression.
He also told us it is “very important” that people understand that “there’s a lot more to it than that.”
What’s the best type of CBD medicine?
Cannabis has been around since at least the 1700s, when French physicians began experimenting with the plant for treating coughs, coughs and other respiratory disorders.
Its most famous ingredient is cannabidiol, or CBD.
Pachco and Wood said there is a lot of confusion about what CBD actually is, and there is no scientific consensus on how much it should be taken.
But they added, there are some important differences between CBD and THC.
CBD is a psychoactive compound that has a wide variety of uses, from treating nausea and vomiting to treating anxiety and pain.
Dr Pachecoes prescription includes a doctor-recommended dose of CBD that ranges from 0.5 milligrams to 6.5 grams per day.
He said the most important thing to do is “just try it.”
Dr Pachesons prescription also includes “a low dose of THC” that ranges “between 0.2 milligram and 1.5 mg per day.”
Dr Pachesos recommended taking this dose every other day.
And, Dr Wood told us “cannabidivarin, which is THC-neutral, has been studied for over 20 years and has a good safety profile.”
But Dr Wood added that “a high dose of cannabis can be toxic.”
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved cannabids for treating nausea, vomiting and other disorders.
But Dr Pachsos prescription does not include a prescription.
So we asked Dr Wood about his advice on CBD for PTSD, and he said it’s a “good idea” to try it “with someone who’s a trained practitioner.”
Dr Robertwood told us there are several ways to get CBD.
He recommended taking CBD with coffee, tea or a herbal supplement, as well as with foods, such as hemp-based cookies.
But he said, “CBD doesn’t have any nutritional value.”
Dr Dr Pearsons prescription does include a list of CBD-containing foods and supplements.
Dr Wood also told the news outlet that he has found “no evidence” of side effects from CBD.
Dr Wood also pointed to “a couple of studies” that show CBD works well as a treatment for some anxiety disorders.
One of those studies included two people with depression, one with anxiety and one with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
In one study, both people with anxiety had lower levels of CBD in their blood.
Dr William Pachecom told us in a statement, “The benefits of CBD for depression are not
