42% of CBD Users Stopped Taking Traditional Meds to Treat Insomnia, Joint Pain, Depression, Etc. in Largest Survey to Date

Out of a surveyed sample of 2,400 members of the world's largest online cannabis community, HelloMD, an impressive 42% percent found CBD effective enough that they ceased using their traditional over-the-counter and prescription medications to treat conditions such as insomnia, depression, and joint pain, reports Forbes:

The largest survey on cannabidiol or CBD usage to date found that women were more likely than men to use CBD and once they started using it, were likely to drop their traditional medicine. A new survey from Brightfield Group and HelloMD covered 2,400 of HelloMD’s community of 150,000 members and did a deep dive into the usage of CBD products and their effectiveness. HelloMD is an online community that brings together doctors and cannabis patients.

The CBD alleviated their needs for medications such as Tylenol and Vicodin, says the report. Additionally, according to the same survey, a whopping 80% of all respondents said they found the CBD products to be "extremely or very effective," although many of them chose to take it in combination with their traditional medications. "Only 3% or less found the product to be ineffectual or only slightly effective." said Forbes.
