First ever Study Explores CBD and Cannabis for COVID-19-Related Anxiety – And You Can Be Part of It! The Cannabinoid Anxiety Relief Education Study (C.A.R.E.S.) is a first of its kind anywhere and they need subjects! Researchers at the University of California, Irvine will be surveying millions of CBD and cannabis users across the United States in an effort to assess the potential role of cannabinoids in reducing COVID-19-related anxiety, insomnia depression, and more. Dr. Sean Young of UC Irvine talks to Paxton Quigley about the role cannabis and CBD might play in alleviating some of the negative effects people are experiencing as a result of isolation, job loss, and financial insecurity as the pandemic continues to wreak havoc at an alarming rate.
