I Tried CBD Oil For My Anxiety
Anyone who knows me well is aware that I can be a tad — well, high-strung. I always attributed this to my undeniable Type A personality; a byproduct of my perfectionism and rigidly organized nature. It wasn’t until about a year ago, when I was describing the heart-pounding panic I experience when I’m running just five minutes late, that my therapist used the term “anxiety.” TBH, it blew my mind, because it never occurred to me that there was a diagnosis for what I felt on a daily basis. While I’ve never taken prescription medication for my anxiety, I’m always seeking out ways to put a damper on it — such as through meditation and deep breathing exercises. But when I read that Jennifer Aniston, aka my lifestyle guru, uses CBD to help her cope with anxiety and stress, I was intrigued. And while I went into the process as a skeptic, I'll admit I was surprised by the results.
