Trying Hemp Oil For Anxiety (Review)

So I tried using hemp oil for my anxiety when I was back in Kenya and tried it once more when I came to Canada. Here are my thoughts about hemp oil for anxiety/insomnia. Just a heads up these are my thoughts and how my body/brain reacted to the hemp oil so it may be subjective.

Pros

Reduced anxiety– It definitely did reduce my anxiety. After using it for about 3-5 days I noticed a decrease of anxiety, however, not a complete disappearance of the anxiety though- just a decrease. Even after using it for a few weeks it was only a decrease in the anxiety.

Better sleep– It definitely helped me fall asleep faster and made my sleep deeper which was nice since I’m usually a very light sleeper and have a hard time falling asleep.

Better Concentration- The reduction of anxiety and better sleep also helped improve my concentration which was really helpful.

Cons

Makes me drowsy- If I drank one or two drops more than usual it made me drowsy the whole day. I was also a bit drowsy for one or two hours after waking up which can be annoying.

Weird dreams- I had super vivid dreams, sometimes nightmares, which was fun sometimes but very annoying other times.

Anxiety doesn’t go away completely- Like I said earlier it only kind of reduces anxiety it doesn’t make it go away completely or even significantly. It just kind of decreases it to an extent.

Final Thoughts

I have had anxiety for a while now and it does get pretty bad at certain times so that may be why hemp oil didn’t work for me as much as it does for some people. Maybe if you’re anxiety is not that bad than it would probably do a better job helping to reduce it.

It did help significantly with my insomnia which in turn helped with my anxiety since sleeping better helps reduce my anxiety so if you are suffering from sleeping problems I would recommend trying out hemp oil. But try very little first because it can make you drowsy the whole day if you take too much. I would also recommend taking it like an hour before you sleep instead of in the morning.

This is the hemp oil I used in case you’re interested in trying that one out specifically click here.

    I have tried several different brands of hemp oil, and it hasn’t really helped me with anxiety or sleep. Yes, a little drowsy, but nothing more.

    However, I have had the worst nightmares taking it, so keep trying different ones.

    Very thought provoking – without the USAs stupid policy on cannabis this would have been properly investigated fifty years ago. There are obviously beneficial properties. But what is the downside?

    I’ve been thinking of trying it for a while to help with sleeping and anxiety, but I have also heard about the nightmares from many people. I already experience enough on my own so maybe it’s not the right fit for me! Thanks for the review! 🙂

    Very interesting. I’ve heard a bit about hemp oil, but haven’t tried it yet. After reading your post, I think it might be worth a try. I have trouble staying asleep at night, so it could probably help with that. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the info. I was under the auspices that you are into natural things. You read my blog on how I was blessed to overcome anxiety. An associate of mine was telling me about CBD how it really helped. But I read through your comments and see you are coming out with a blog about that too. Also, I researched a site that I thought might help. Here’s the link: https://www.healthline.com/health/natural-ways-to-reduce-anxiety#1. Blessings and Peace.
