CBD Survey

Survey: Nearly Half Of People Who Use Cannabidiol
Products Stop Taking Traditional Medicines
The largest survey on cannabidiol or CBD usage to date found that women were more
likely than men to use CBD and once they started using it, were likely to drop their
traditional medicine. A new survey from Brightfield Group and HelloMD covered 2,400
of HelloMD’s community of 150,000 members and did a deep dive into the usage of
CBD products and their effectiveness. HelloMD is an online community that brings
together doctors and cannabis patients.
Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive cannabis compound that doesn’t give users the
feeling that they are high or stoned. Instead, it is known to have medicinal qualities.
Contrary to the image of men being the predominant consumers of cannabis, this
survey found that 55% of the CBD users were women, while men preferred the THC-
dominant products. Brightfield Group, which helped conduct the survey, studies
consumption patterns and demand trends and is committed to providing accurate data
in the cannabis industry which seems to be rife with unsupported claims.
The most common reasons people used CBD were to treat insomnia, depression,
anxiety and joint pain, according to Dr. Perry Solomon, the Chief Medical Officer of
HelloMD. Forty-two percent of the CBD users said they had stopped using traditional
medications like Tylenol pain relievers or prescription drugs like Vicodin and had
switched to using cannabis instead. Eighty percent said that they found the products to
be “very or extremely effective.” Only 3% or less found the product to be either
ineffectual or only slightly effective.
