Research on CBD is limited, and many studies conclude that more research is needed. However, the existing research shows that CBD is safe for human use and may have medicinal benefits.
The most substantial evidence of CBD’s health benefits is for childhood epilepsy. Some children who have rare epilepsy don’t typically respond to anti-seizure medicine, but they respond very well to CBD.   The evidence is so strong that the FDA has approved the first-ever medicine derived from cannabis to treat rare and severe forms of epilepsy. 
There is also evidence that suggests CBD benefits patients with:
- Generalized anxiety disorder 
- Obstructive sleep apnea 
- Chronic pain 
- Arthritis 
- Inflammation 
That last one, inflammation, is especially relevant to CBD’s potential benefits in various skin conditions. We’ll get to that in a moment.
Current research on CBD shows that it’s safe, but more research needs to be done. Some studies on CBD have had mixed results, while others have had overwhelmingly promising results. Nevertheless, it appears that CBD is safe and, in some cases, effective.
If you’re thinking about incorporating CBD products into your wellness routine, do so by adding CBD, not replacing your existing medications and supplements with CBD.
