CBD is being touted as a cure-all for, well, all. Pain, anxiety, acne—anecdotal evidence suggests the cannabinoid works wonders for each of those issues and more, and marketers are certainly spreading the hype. But is CBD too good to be true? We decided to put the celebrated compound to the test. Marie Claire editors readily volunteered to try out CBD tinctures, patches, masks, and bath bombs and report back on their results. And then, we got the science. Personal testimonials are nice, but we wanted to be sure rave reviews weren’t just the placebo effect. So, we asked Alex Capano, D.N.P., chief science officer of Ananda Hemp (opens in new tab) , to weigh in with her expertise. Here, 10 possible uses for CBD—and the real deal on whether it works or not.
The Ailment: Anxiety
The Editor Says:
I’ve always thought of CBD as something to be used in the moment—when I couldn’t sleep, when I felt a panic attack coming on— but the directions on Rosebud’s full spectrum CBD oil (opens in new tab) say to ingest 1–2 servings (1 serving = ¼ dropper, or about 17 mg) once or twice a day, like a daily prescription to keep my anxiety continually at bay. Over the last two weeks, I’ve dosed myself once in the morning and once before bed. The oil is unsweetened/unflavored with an earthy, hint-of-cannabis taste, but I found it more pleasant than similar products I’ve tried. This might be in my head, but the oil tastes like it will work—and it did. I felt calmer and more focused at work, but the biggest perk was the effect it had on my sleep: I often wake up hours before my alarm and my anxiety kicks in right away: You’ll never be able to go back to sleep, here’s a long list of all the things you have to do today, oh and did you know your mom’s birthday is coming up? But since I’ve been taking Rosebud, I’ve been able to go back to sleep, often for hours at a time, my anxiety nowhere to be found. I slept until 10 a.m. on a weekend day for the first time in YEARS! The only thing that makes me reluctant to continue using it regularly is the cost: At $125 for a 0.5 oz bottle of the 1,000 mg CBD oil, the habit could get expensive. But I’ve learned that when it comes to CBD, you get what you pay for, and my research tells me that Rosebud’s hemp is sun grown in Oregon without herbicides, pesticides, solvents, fillers, additives, or preservatives, it’s third-party lab tested, and, as I now know, effective—all of which makes it deserving of its price tag. After all, is anything worth splurging on more than a good night’s sleep? —Kayla Webley Adler, Senior Editor
