Tinnitus and CBD: Will it help?

Plants known as marijuana or hemp, depending on the strain. Hemp plants are very similar to marijuana plants, but contain much lower levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active chemical that causes a psychoactive high in marijuana users.

CBD is distinct from THC. CBD users do not experience a high. 

CBD can be made into oils, tinctures, gels, and sprays. 

Why is CBD so popular now?

In 2018, Congress passed the Agriculture Improvement Act , officially removing hemp from the Controlled Substances Act. This opened the door for marketing the non-narcotic aspects of the plant. 

Today many companies sell the chemical compound, claiming its medicinal virtues include alleviating pain and treating a wide variety of conditions including anxiety, depression, insomnia, acne and tinnitus. Rigorous medical research, so far, is lacking for most of these conditions. The exception being two rare forms of epilepsy, which can be treated with an FDA-approved drug containing CBD called Epidiolex.
