Anxiety is a common condition and CBD has proved to be very effective in treating it, generally avoiding the need for benzodiazepines. Some experts regard CBD as the best treatment we have for panic attacks and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Although CBD is not a primary treatment for depression, depression and anxiety commonly occur together and CBD can be very helpful. We have also had good feedback from people with ADHD.
Insomnia has many causes including chronic pain, snoring/sleep apnoea, anxiety and depression, the normal ageing process, restless legs and external factors such as shift work and excessive use of electronic devices.
Insomnia is a big problem and conventional sleeping pills are addictive and lose their effectiveness with long term use.
CBD, possibly with the additional careful use of THC under the expert advice of your cannabis doctor doctor, can be a very effective long term management programme giving a regular good night’s sleep.
The anti inflammatory effects of CBD can be very helpful treating Rheumatoid and other forms of arthritis. Also in the treatment of skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis.
CBD can provide relief to those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease through its anti spasmodic and anti inflammatory effect.

CBD can be very helpful with conditions including: Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy (children and adults), autism spectrum disorder, migraines, multiple sclerosis, stroke, traumatic brain injury, paraplegia, motor neurone disease and others. We specifically have seen very good results with stiffness and tremor in Parkinson’s disease and muscle spasm in multiple sclerosis and paraplegia.
