CBD oil for anxiety

GreenTeaGreenTea The moonPosts: 335 Rampant Poster
Hello
If this isn't the right section please move it to the correct one.
Anyway,
I know many people who have turned to CBD oil for anxiety and my mum has mentioned it to me before. I was curious as to if anyone has used it to help with their anxiety? And did it help or not?

I ordered some to try because I feel like my anxiety meds aren't doing much at the moment and it's really difficult to the point I feel like trying new things.

Hopefully some of you can give me some advice or information about your experience

    Hi, 

    I don't have much experience with it but wanted to jump on to say it is in the right section.

    Also BBC have published a short video/documentary on CBD oil and anxiety. Hope it helps a little.

    Than you so much. I actually cried and panicked think I posted it in the wrong place! I really appreciate you saying it was in the correct place! Thank you. Actually means a lot that you said that so thank you 

    I'll watch the video later when I'm a bit calmer. I really want to hear other peoples experience before I try it, just so I feel like I'm doing the right thing

    My mum mentioned something about this a while ago and forgot it so I'm interested, can you send me a link to them?? 
    Love is love and everyone is accepting and can share their issues with no judge from me and I try to help

    Hey! 

    I’ve had experience with CBD tablets that I got for my anxiety which are similar to the oil, personally I don’t feel like they benefited me but I didn’t use them for very long. I know use the CALMS day which I find do keep me a bit calmer so worth looking into if you want another alternative? 

    I hope that they do work for you!
