- Survey respondents use CBD to treat anxiety, depression, insomnia and joint pain
- ADYNF is researching impact of cannabidiol products in treatment of mental health issues and cancers
- 61% of consumers surveyed said they are spending greater than $50 monthly on CBD products
Algae Dynamics Corp. (OTCQB: ADYNF) could be among the chief beneficiaries of a recent survey that found that 42% of respondents chose cannabidiol (CBD), derived from hemp or marijuana, and dropped traditional medicines (http://nnw.fm/6Qu2c). In addition, an “Understanding Cannabidiol” survey of some 2,400 members of HelloMD, an online CBD community, and market research firm Brightfield Group jointly found that, by an overwhelming majority, respondents favored CBD made from cannabis rather than industrial hemp (http://nnw.fm/s2m3Q).
CBD is being used instead of traditional medicines to treat anxiety (67%), insomnia (60%), joint pain and inflammation (52%) and depression (43%). A total of 61% of survey-takers said that they spend more than $50 monthly on CBD products, while more than half of respondents said they use oil cartridges and vaping. Notably, more than half (58%) of those surveyed are women.
The study found that 42% of respondents use cannabis rather than traditional medications for depression, anxiety, joint pain and anxiety, and some 80% said they find CBD products to be very or extremely effective treatments. Some 90% said they would be likely to buy marijuana-based CBD-only products.
Also, 53% of CBD users purchase CBD products from storefront dispensaries, 31% through local delivery services, and 17% online. Not only do 29% of this group find that CBD products provide the best medical relief, but, in the study’s words “about 66% of CBD users indicated that CBD products are either more effective or much more effective in relieving their medical conditions than are over-the counter (OTC) products.”
