It appears I am not alone in seeking alternative options to manage my aches and pains as I begin to put a few miles on this old body. Online searches for information on CBD are outpacing all other wellness trends based on search statistics from google since 2014. With searches seeing 100% + increases year over year in 2016-2017-2018 and on pace for that number in 2019. As CBD benefits are being tested and weighed by the FDA, it appears they are behind the consumer sentiment on this product.
With the Opioid crises gripping America and scaring physicians away from prescribing pain medication, people are starting to research the benefits of CBD regardless of whether companies can market the medicinal properties of the products. Let’s hope the FDA catches up and releases it’s findings sooner rather than later so that people can get a bit more comfortable with using CBD as an alternative to manage pain, discomfort, sleeping disorders and other ailments.
