It hasn’t been that long since the Coronavirus (COVID-19) first hit. However, in the short time that it has been here the damage has been severe.
As of this writing, there are over 2.2 million documented cases around the world and likely hundreds of thousands (or millions) of undocumented cases.
While most people who get the disease just experience flu-like symptoms, many have become seriously ill and, worldwide, thousands have died. In fact, the latest statistics indicate that there have been over 155,000 deaths around the world that have been attributed to the virus. Many countries have declared a State of Emergency.
Schools are closed. People have been asked (or ordered) to “social distance” and not to travel or go to work. Many businesses have been ordered closed ... and many workers have been laid off.
The impact of the Coronavirus has been extensive. It has quickly affected the way we live, the way we interact, the way we shop and much, much more.
In this article we are going to take a closer look at COVID-19 as well as how CBD may be just what those quarantined at home need to relieve stress and anxiety and feel better.
What is Coronavirus?
Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is a newly identified type of virus that has caused a recent outbreak of respiratory illnesses. Coronavirus was first discovered in December of 2019 in Wuhan, China.

The 'CO' stands for 'corona,' the 'VI' stands for 'virus,' and the 'D' stands for disease. This disease was formerly known as the “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCoV”. Now it is widely called COVID-19. There are actually many types of human coronaviruses in existence, including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses.

People with Coronavirus may experience: tiredness, a dry cough, fever and difficulty breathing (severe cases).
Who is affected by Coronavirus?
Anyone can catch Coronavirus but elderly individuals who struggled with previous health issues like hypertension are particularly at risk.
How does Coronavirus compare to the flu?
The World Health Organization estimates that worldwide, annual influenza epidemics result in about 3-5 million cases of severe illness and about 250,000 to 500,000 deaths. In comparison, the Coronavirus has produced 2,269,630 cases so far with 155,205 deaths. Those numbers are expected to continue rising.
How can I stay safe from the Coronavirus?
Health experts recommend that you do the following things to lessen your chances of contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19):
Many of us have been home for weeks now. The only break an occasional run to the grocery store or pharmacy for needed supplies.
The rest of the time we are at home – often watching TV or reading books or maybe doing some household projects (like cleaning the garage) to fill the time.
The days can start to bleed together – so much so that it can be difficult to remember what day it is.
People we love can begin to get on our nerves as well. Experts say domestic violence incidents have increased and that couples are finding themselves arguing much more – all because they are at home and around each other much more.

Now here are some tips to cut down on the level of stress you may be feeling toward another during the Coronavirus Outbreak:
In a study on Generalized Anxiety Disorder, the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that CBD reduces stress in animal subjects (rats). https://www.drugabuse.gov/news-events/news-releases/2018/03/non-psychoactive-cannabinoid-may-enable-drug-addiction-recovery
In another study entitled, “Cannabidiol as a Potential Treatment for Anxiety Disorders” scientists found that “Evidence from human studies strongly supports the potential for CBD as a treatment for anxiety disorders … CBD reduces experimentally induced anxiety in healthy controls, without affecting baseline anxiety levels, and reduces anxiety in patients with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).” (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4604171/)
