Who Uses CBD the Most and What Are the Benefits?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a popular supplement consumed by adults of all ages in the U. S. According to a recent Forbes Health survey of 2000 Americans, 60% of those surveyed had tried a CBD product. Regulators are cautious about legalizing it completely without restrictions, leaving consumers with the responsibility to explore the science and supply of CBD and weigh the potential risks and benefits of each product.

The survey data suggests that only 15% of U. adults consider it socially unacceptable to consume CBD or THC, and 45% say it is socially acceptable to consume CBD exclusively. 60% of U. adults have already tried a CBD product and believe that the cannabinoid offers medicinal benefits.

When asked why they used CBD, this subgroup of respondents reported a variety of reasons, mainly to reduce stress (62%), relieve pain (60%), improve sleep quality (58%), relieve anxiety (51%) and follow doctor's advice (48%).Gummies and other foods are the most preferred form of CBD consumption (58%), followed by oils and tinctures (55%), capsules (55%) and lotions (53%). Despite its widespread use and growing social acceptance, CBD still makes people nervous when it comes to drug testing, a practice that remains common in employment testing in industries across the country. 46% think that using CBD would be positive in a drug test and 28% are not sure if it will affect the results of a drug test.For people who want to consume CBD but are concerned about possible drug test results, isolated CBD products may be the safest option. A SingleCare survey asked people about some common misconceptions about CBD and, in general, showed that people have only a limited understanding and that many myths persist.The Brightfield Group report also included information on what people discuss in social conversations about delta-8, compared to similar conversations about CBD.

It's very important to note that this is a percentage of American CBD users, not a general knowledge of the population.We've compiled these statistics on CBD to help you find the key information you need about CBD, its users, the surrounding legal situation, the market, other alternative cannabinoids and much more. Only CBD products labeled “full spectrum” should include up to 0.3% THC, but 56% of those surveyed don't fully understand the differences between full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD and isolated CBD.Although the difference was too small to be significant, these statistics on CBD are a glimmer of hope for people with chronic pain. Of course, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is also found in the marijuana plant, it's not the same thing.
