The first study is focusing on using CBD oil to alleviate elevated stress, anxiety, depression, or sleep problems caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
"People who are suffering from COVID-19-heightened emotional stress because of COVID-19, to what extent would CBD actually be helpful?" Dr. Mike Telch told KVUE.
