CBD for Depression + Stress
Our very own Dr. Eric Dorninger, ND, reviewed the results of a randomized, controlled trial observing the effects of CBD on healthcare worker burnout.
The study reviewed suggests CBD is a viable and relatively safe option for mitigating emotional overload and burnout in healthcare workers. Moreover, CBD demonstrated antianxiolytic and antidepressive benefit to these stressed healthcare providers.
This study adds to prior studies in suggesting CBD’s benefits as a neuroendocrine-immune modulator and as a potential ally in helping healthcare workers avoid burnout and emotional exhaustion.
