CBD Oil For Anxiety (Review)

I tried using CBD oil for my anxiety when I came to Canada. Here are my thoughts about how it worked for my mental health. Just a heads up these are my thoughts and how my body/brain reacted to the hemp oil so it may be subjective.

Pros

Highly reduces anxiety- I noticed a huge decrease in anxiety as soon as I began taking the oil. It was significantly less and after about a week my anxiety was almost completely gone especially my social anxiety. Like I remember the first time I was sitting there having a conversation laughing and not being anxious- it was an amazing feeling.
Better sleep- It definitely highly improved my sleep. Like I could tell from day one. I went to sleep so much faster and I was completely out. Like there was so much noise going on in the house and I was still totally out which is crazy because I’m an extremely light sleeper.
Elevated mood- Like I said it makes me super happy and friendly and I laugh so much. It just makes me feel so light and happy I love that feeling. As you guys know I do suffer from depression but have not had any depressive episodes while taking CBD oil regularly.
Better concentration– I generally have good concentration but this made it even better. I was much less distracted and my concentration was really good plus things were just really clicking in my brain.
More energy- I felt so much more energetic almost instantly. I’m usually the polar opposite of energetic especially in the morning. If someone were to describe me the word sloth-like would come up multiple times. But this oil makes me so energetic and ready to do stuff- yes even in the morning…

Cons

Increased metabolism- It makes me digest food faster so I end up eating a lot more food. I haven’t gained weight due to it so far so maybe I’m burning it off with all the energy.
Slight anxiety sometimes- I still get anxious once in a blue moon or if there is something that’s triggering. I understand that CBD oil isn’t a magic cure though  so personally I would rather have almost no anxiety and not have to take medication.
Dry mouth- For the first few days I took it I woke up with my mouth kind of dry and it was kind of dry throughout the day but over time my body seems to have gotten used to it.
Vivid dreams- Unlike hemp oil it did not give me any nightmares. It does however give me super realistic vivid dreams which are actually kind of fun to be honest. I love dreams and thinking of them when I wake up so this is like a fun activity for me but I know it can be a bit annoying for people so I listed it as a con.

Final Thoughts

I love CBD oil at the moment and personally for me it has helped in a huge way for my anxiety, insomnia and depression. I want to add however that it isn’t some sort of magic cure a lot of people seem to make it out to be. Everyone’s body reacts differently and it may not work for everyone. I would recommend doing your own research before trying it out and trying a very low dose first.
