I recently started using CBD oil to help with my anxiety and sleep issues. According to its supporters, CBD has lots of benefits to which I have no experience with so I can’t speak on. But as far as anxiety and sleep, it worked for me. Right from the first use, I noticed a difference, and have continued using it to help manage my anxiety for the last 4 months.
I used to have panic attacks pretty often because my anxiety was unmanaged. For the past 5 years, I have made some lifestyle changes to help manage my anxiety, like cutting out caffeine and avoiding triggers. That has helped reduce my panic attacks significantly.
Even with that, I have always had a hard time sleeping. I remember as a little girl struggling with sleep and always had bags under my eyes. I’m pretty much a night person and have no problem getting enough sleep if I can get up whenever I want. I struggle to fall asleep before midnight no matter what I do.
How I Use It
I had heard about using CBD oil for anxiety and sleep problems, so I decided to try it. The first time I took it I was when I was having a hard time falling asleep and within 5 minutes of taking it I was asleep. I continued doing this as I needed to and it worked every time. I am up to 3 drops now because you do build a resistance which requires you to increase the dosage. Usually, I’ll go to bed and if I think I’ll have a hard time falling asleep then I grab my bottle from my nightstand and take a few drops.
I also have taken 2-3 drops during the day when I feel my anxiety working up. If I’m worrying too much or feel a panic attack coming then I’ll take some drops and within a few minutes, I’m calm again. Everything else I do is more along preventing, while this helps treat my symptoms as they pop up. I’m so happy to finally have something I can use to stop an attack.
