A team of researchers at McGill University have found the proper dosage of CBD to alleviate anxiety and pain issues without having to deal with the high that THC brings on. 

The team demonstrated that CBD does not act on the CB1 cannabinoid receptors that THC does. Instead, CBD acts through the mechanism that binds specific receptors like serotonin 5-HT1A, which is involved in anxiety, and vanilloid TRPV1, which is involved in pain. 

“In animal models of neuropathic or chronic pain, we found that low doses of CBD administered for seven days alleviate both pain and anxiety, two symptoms often associated,” says the study’s first author Danilo De Gregorio, a postdoctoral fellow at McGill University.

Gabriella Gobbi, the lead author of the study, sees this as an opportunity to use medical cannabis extracts as a means to alleviate chronic pain rather than using opioids or THC infused products. The study and its findings have been published in the journal PAIN.
