As many of you know, I have anxiety issues. The clinic I use did not have a psychiatrist in over two year. The original one died and they trouble finding a replacement. It turns out I was on the wrong drug.
When I first met the new replacement, they give you an hour to discuss your issues and aims. She immediately switched me to Buspar, but some of my friends are on "Full Spectrum CBD." One of my forum friends said she tried the oil once, and almost gagged on the taste. She went back to capsules.
When I asked the psychiatrist about it, she seemed to be looking for a way to sound neutral when I knew she had an opinion. All would say is that, "It's worked for some."
The meds we take are made from chemicals. CBD products are made from plants. That would seem to be the better choice, but I don't know much about it. We have a health food store about a mile from my home, but they're not going to bad-rap the stuff they sell.
Anyone have some insight?

I am interested in this myself, I hope someone with some knowledge on the subject chimes in.

It's the "cool new thing" I know that much. Not sure of its effectiveness.

I didn't know that they were mixing in illegal drugs into some of that stuff >>> I was watching a live cop stop and some kid had a bottle of the stuff - the cops did a drug test - came out OK for the kid but he didn't even know for sure ....

My mother swears by it when it comes to alleviating inflammation. Work Wifey's husband says it helps him focus.

Our Wisconsin law states that CBD oil cannot contain more than 3% THC. That's not the part that even concerns me.
It's like Denton says, it helped that husband focus. Let me tell you about anxiety and panic attacks. A few months ago I had a full-blown panic attack (for no solid reason) and my wife was visiting her mother. I talked to our Dean Clinic "Nurse On Call."
A very compassionate woman, but one of the alternatives (turning yourself in to St. Mary's Hospital) was not available to me since our dog had to be cared for.
And I'm a bit jealous. The bulk of my problems have been in the last three years. Now if you stand in court and the judge doesn't think you are competent enough to be of aid to your counsel, they give you four days in a hospital. I have stated to my medical doctor that if his patients were allowed the same rights (just express your concerns and check in a hospital like any other suffering patient) my anxiety would have been under control years ago.
BTW, as for panic attacks, it is frightening experience. On paper it is 5 minutes of extreme adrenaline or cortisol, backed by 20 minutes of easing back to normal. Trust me, I've had after effects that lasted for days.

The CBD oil here in Mi. has no THC.. none
Some folks I know says it helps them with anxiety and some say it help with arthritic pain and other issues. Pricey? yes!

Every case, every person is different. How many people with diabetes or high blood pressure go through multiple drugs to fin the right one? A lot. I would say itís the same for the natural stuff. See what works and what doesnít in various concentrations. I would think natural stuff would be less likely to have undesirable side effects but that probably varries too. For instance unknown allergies, digestive ailments and so on.

I am subject to random drug tests for continued employment, so any THC content concerns me.

CBD oil does not likely do everything that some sellers say it will however it clearly works for a lot of things . It is not illegal recent changes by the Federal Goverment on how "Industrial Hemp" is classified/ regulated occured just a couple weeks ago.
I would try It , if it seems to work/ help great. The unfounded claims should stop within a year or two once the markets settle down and it becomes more main stream . Folks selling and making unfounded health claims will be forced to stop making claims or post research.
