Periodically, Project CBD surveys the community to find out how you’re using CBD and cannabis therapies, and how it’s working for you. Please fill out our current survey, and review past surveys below.
This survey–a collaboration between Care By Design and Project CBD–sought to answer several questions: How satisfied are patients with cannabis as an analgesic? How does medical marijuana compare to other pain management approaches, in particular, opiates? How do the most common pain management therapies compare in terms of their impact on quality of life? Eight hundred people, most between 50 to 70 years old, responded to the survey. Over 80 percent reported that they were suffering from chronic pain; close to half reported suffering from acute pain. A significant decrease in opiate usage among elderly patients on cannabis therapy was the study’s most notable finding.
Between seven and eight percent of people will develop PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) in their lifetime. Among military veterans, the rates are higher. Care By Design recently surveyed 300 patients on their use of cannabis and other medications to treat PTSD. The survey asked what medications patients had been prescribed for their PTSD-related symptoms and what impact these medications–and cannabis–had on five telltale symptoms of PTSD: anxiety, depression, pain, anger or irritability, and sleep problems.
Care By Design surveyed thousands of patients who had been using CBD-rich cannabis medicines for over 30 days. They asked patients what they were taking CBD-rich cannabis for, the ratio of CBD-to-THC they were using, and about its impact on pain, discomfort, energy, mood, and overall wellbeing.
