I cannot say that I have. As much chatter as I have seen out there online about CBD, I'm surprised to see zero response on your thread, to be perfectly honest. I know around here stores only recently opened for business with this industry, so I'll be curious to see if reviews will start flowing in?

it's legal here in az. and i have a medical m/j card for my crohn's/colitis; i buy a vape pen and tell person behind counter i want something for sleep and anxiety, not something activating...since my diagnosis is hypomania with no depression. i take 1/2 of .5 mg. klonopin in the am with rest of my meds/vitamins but i find around 2pm my anxiety predictably kicks in; i'll take one hit off my vape which seems to cut the edge off my anxiety. only when i'm very stressed with i take another 1/2 of klonopin in afternoon, but don't vape when taking the klonopin; i have a very low tolerance and for me, that 1/2 of klonopin really over-calms me. do your research on the cbd oil as everyone has different experience with it. i've tried the edibles and they make me very high, even taking a small bite from a gummy.

I think it's important to ask your Pdoc before trying something like CBD, detour1, especially if you're already taking other meds. Stay safe and take care of yourself. Sending many hugs to you

I've been using it for the physical effects associated with panic disorder. 100% CBD. A good organic brand. No THC. It eases most of my symptoms (racing pulse/heartbeat, tight throat, dizziness/vertigo, headaches)...or helps keep them at bay. I use it so I can avoid a psych prescription med & my psych is aware and in agreeance with me taking it.
Note that CBD is known to have interactions with various drugs so educate yourself on that. Also, if you want to understand how or why it might help you, look up endocannibinoid (I think i spelled that right!) system & CBD oil.
