Forget the meditation cushions and the mindfulness apps — if the coronavirus has got you feeling anxious these days, it may be time to consider adding some CBD to your self-care routine.
As cases of COVID-19 continue to spike across the country, so have cases of anxiety. New data from the American Psychiatric Association last week found that nearly half of all Americans (48%) are anxious about the possibility of getting sick, with more than one-third saying that coronavirus is having a “serious impact on their mental health.“
The Anxiety and Depression Association of America says “capsized travel plans, indefinite isolation, panic over scarce resources and information overload” have also contributed to feelings of anxiety and isolation.
While doctors continue to work on a cure for COVID-19, people are looking to things like supplements and natural remedies to help soothe and self-medicate. One way they’re coping with the craziness: cannabidiol, a.k.a. CBD.
