Pot Compound Reduces Anxiety In First Ever Clinical Trial
Quote:Pot Compound Reduces Anxiety In First Ever Clinical Trial

Sao Paulo, Brazil:
The administration of the cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive component of marijuana, reduces anxiety in subjects with social anxiety disorder (SAD), according to clinical trial data published online in The Journal of Psychopharmacology.

Investigators at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil assessed the anti-anxiety activity of oral doses of CBD in ten subjects in a double blind, placebo-controlled trial.

Researchers concluded, "CBD reduces anxiety in SAD and that this is related to its effects on activity in limbic and paralimbic brain areas."

The study is the first clinical trial to investigate the effects of CBD on human pathological anxiety and its underlying brain mechanisms.

Previous studies of CBD have demonstrated the compound to possess anti-inflammatory activity, anti-cancer activity, and neuroprotective effects – among other therapeutic properties.

For more information, please contact Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director, at: paul@norml.org. Full text of the study, "Neural basis of anxiolytic effects of cannabidiol (CBD) in generalized social anxiety disorder: a preliminary report," appears online in The Journal of Psychopharmacology.


See, this is just what I've been saying about CBD all along. Clap

Well let's hurry up and legalize it and I bet you could find it in pill form aswell as liquid form at least at some point in the future.
Something the controllers don't want you to know is that we already knew this thousands of years ago but was all destroyed by evil when it was all banned by the sick elite who took away the power back in the thirties.

We as humans used the plant for alot of our illnesses and to keep us healthy and this is why it was all destroyed,to make us believe we need fake bad drugs that come from corrupt doctors who also know cannabis is the answer.

This is good news. For too long this amazing plant has been ignored as far as it's medical properties are concerned, all due to some propaganda from a small select amount of people in the elite class.

Check out Sativex, it was out a few months back here in the UK:

If you do a google search and click news there's a lot about Sativex, it's also now legal in Canada it seems.

Good point, the anti-nausea affects are quite well documented. Is your blog still available?

Yea, it's still there. I think my placing that up there blew some minds that were reading it. That's good though, if they get it that is one thing they should get. It also eases the body pain from the chemo.

I know, it really is a plant of many uses! Hemp overall is like a dormant psrt of our world that only a few know the potential of. If only TPTB would allow this wonderful plant to take it's rightful place within society and in industry/agriculture.

Do you have the url of the blog? I'd love to have a read.

So it was the THC (the psycho-active ingredient) that makes some people paranoid smoking too much pot?

The "good" stuff is the "cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive component of marijuana"?

I might just stick with the DHT or create my own morphic field.

Well, you see, that's the thing. It turns out that Although THC is psychoactive (A 'psychotic) the CBD is actually Anti-psychotic in it effects. So "Skunk" of today actually does to a degree, need to be treated differently, because the problem becomes, to produce more of either THC, or CBD, you will in return get less of the other. So high THC would equate to low CBD, and vice-versa.

Naturally occurring strains have balanced levels of both these active agents.

All those "weed" related stories (not the hyped ones, but where kids/teens have suffered breakdowns etc) make a lot more sense.

The same goes for messing with most things in nature and taking a plant out of it's natural growing environment and trying to control nature.

Just be glad they aren't going as far as what they are with trees: A Silent Forest - The Growing Threat, Genetically Engineered Trees
