One of the largest survey on CBD oil usage found that women were more likely than men to use CBD oil and once they started using it, were likely to drop their traditional medicine. A survey covered 2,400 of HelloMD’s community of 150,000 members and did a deep dive into the usage of CBD oil products and their effectiveness.

Cannabidiol or CBD oil is a non-psychoactive cannabis compound that doesn’t give users the feeling that they are high or stoned. Instead, it is known to have medicinal qualities. Contrary to the image of men being the predominant consumers of cannabis, this survey found that 55% of the CBD users were women, while men preferred the THC-dominant products. Brightfield Group, which helped conduct the survey, studies consumption patterns and demand trends and is committed to providing accurate data in the cannabis industry which seems to be rife with unsupported claims.

The most common reasons people used CBD were to treat insomnia, depression, anxiety and joint pain, according to Dr. Perry Solomon, the Chief Medical Officer of HelloMD. Forty-two percent of the CBD users said they had stopped using traditional medications like Tylenol pain relievers or prescription drugs like Vicodin and had switched to using cannabis instead. Eighty percent said that they found the products to be “very or extremely effective.” Only 3% or less found the product to be either ineffectual or only slightly effective.

I heard many times that you could reduce or even stop some of the medication if you take CBD oil, especially for pain and inflammation treatment

I heard this too.

Also, it is important to note that, anyone with brain injury who is taking CBD oil would be best to also be taking balanced minerals and micronutrients including iron, iodine, omega 3 oils, 5htp, and boron. So anything else you’re taking may be extraneous.

You should drink at least 1.5 liters of water a day as well as recreational drinks like beer, tea, and coffee. Thanks!
