According to a Washington State University (WSU) study, people suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) could have a renewed hope with the use of cannabis.
OCD is a psychological disorder characterized by obsessive activity and intrusive thoughts.
It is estimated that around 2% to 3% of the world's population is affected by OCD.
Although these benefits seem to be short term.... Carrie Cuttler, a psychology professor at WSU and the study's author stated,
"These CBD findings are extremely promising, because CBD is also non-intoxicating and is generally safe, rarely causes dangerous side effects."
Overall, research examining the ability of CBD to treat OCD is still in the early stages. However... some studies have found evidence that CBD may help manage symptoms and many people anecdotally report that they find it helpful.
