The world is currently facing a health crisis and it is safe to say that the situation is not pleasant for anyone. It is even less pleasant for the health care workers who have to take care of patients with COVID 19 and who are under great psychological pressure. Many cases of burnout have been reported. Sleep disorders, anxiety, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and depression are also symptoms that can occur. In some cases, the consequences can be severe.
It is within this framework that studies were conducted at the University Hospital (Brazil) on a part of the medical staff during the first wave of Covid. It was studied the non-psychotropic effects of CBD on the mental health of the subjects. It was noticed after the analyses that CBD, when combined with classical treatments such as psychological support or sport practice, helped to relieve emotional exhaustion. The same effect was noticed on symptoms of depression and anxiety. There is also less burn-out under CBD.
