I started yesterday with 4 drops of 5% CBD oil. The results were stunning, I almost cried out of pure joy. For the first time in years I was free of anxiety and stress. I could feel real "fun" as I was playing videogames with a friend.
After 10 years of smoking weed daily and my last years burnout, I had a lot of time to think about my health. The reason I smoke weed is, that I suffer from stress / anxiety since I can think. Sometimes I wake up from my anxiety in the morning. It's so bad that I cant work or have a normal life anymore.
It may have to do with the fact that I reduced my weed / THC intake yesterday evening.
I would love to hear any kind of experience with CBD / anxiety / weed from you!
I'm a 30 years old male diagnosed with Borderline personality disorder, general anxiety disorder and a heavy addiction (I "parked" my addiction at weed since most of my ancestors are lifelong alcoholics).
My question to users who treat their anxiety with high CBD strains: Is it worth it? To be more precise, over a period of time, does your anxiety symptoms disappear? Or is it a lifetime thing where you just use CBD strains to make your anxiety symptoms disappear for a while?
Hi. I'm a 24yo male from Southeast Europe where recreational and medicinal cannabis is ilegal and I suffer from a General anxiety disorder (GAD) for 5-6 years to this day. I'll skip my anxiety story to make things shorter and say only what I've done to ease it. I've started to meditate (mindfulness and concentration meditation) 3 years ago and boy, it helped me a lot. From a crippling anxiety case I now have a highly functional anxiety disorder. By highly functional I mean I can function normally in a social environment, go to a movie, manage stressful situations etc. So, what's the problem? Well, there is still this anxious feeling through the day that I can't shake off even with meditation. The feeling that something is wrong and that feeling is so dominant I'm kinda numb. I can't feel my emotions in their fullness, I've lost interest in many things that made me happy before the disorder. I'm a happy person because of the point of view meditation gave me but I'm still numb and anxious. It's like I'm not living my life with full potential.
Thank you for your time 🙂 P.S. I was on SSRI's but stopped using them long ago because they were hell.
DISCLAMER: Ofcourse, this story is just a product of my imagination, I would never use such substances that are illegal in my country.
So, due the negative laws towards cannabis in my country you can only get street junk grade pot which is a wild guess. I don't smoke pot regularly but when I find myself in the company of stoners I do. 70% of the time the next day after smoking I feel like I'm in a fog, totally unmotivated. But, this week I've got my hands on few grams of weed that doesn't get me so high but relaxes me so much and the next day my anxiety is minimal + I get my emotions back in full coloration. I'm suspicious that this is a noname strain with more CBD's that I'm use to.
