I first started hearing about CBD (cannabidiol) oil a few years ago. I had a hippie friend that kept posting online about its benefits. She sells for a living, and she’s good at it. I almost bought some. I saw a few signs in a few windows around town; mainly in the shops that carried herbs and crystals. I thought it was interesting but didn’t try it. It was my hairdresser who finally got me off the couch. She’s super healthy and has plenty of knowledge to share about supplements for this and supplements for that. I had told her about my anxiety and stress, and she insisted I try CBD oil. She had been taking it for six months or so and had noticed a huge difference in her overall mood and sense of well-being. She was more relaxed and less stressed than ever. She looked and felt great. She swore up and down that it didn’t make her feel “high.” CBD is non-psychoactive, unlike THC which is the main chemical compound in the beloved marijuana plant. So, I took the plunge. I found some CBD oil companies online and I ordered a bottle. I was instructed to start with a small amount, about a ¼ dropper full under the tongue for 1-2 minutes once or twice per day. If I didn’t feel better in 3-4 days, I was instructed to increase by ¼ dropper.
When my bottle of CBD oil arrived in my mailbox, I was excited. I’ve been dealing with anxiety disorder my entire life. It sucks, to be frank. Anxiety keeps me from doing a lot of things. It keeps me from talking to new people, going to parties, presenting ideas in a meeting at work, and so many other things. It makes me worry, a lot, about silly things. My anxiety is exhausting. I took my first dose as soon as I could open the package. I held the odorless and tasteless coconut oil CBD tincture under my tongue for 2 minutes and swallowed with a little water. I tasted nothing. Then, I waited.
They say it can take a few days to work for some, or 15 minutes for others. I swear to you, within 15 minutes, a state of calmness washed over me. It’s subtle. It’s not like being drunk, or even buzzed off a glass of wine (or two). It’s as if all the sharp edges of life have been dulled down a bit. When I’m buried at work and another project lands on my desk – cool. When I’m headed into the grocery store on a Sunday afternoon – I’m good. When traffic is a nightmare and I get cut off – that’s okay buddy, you’re in a rush, you go ahead. I’m not mad. I’m not stressed. I’m not anxious. I’m going to networking events more easily now. I’m talking to clients with greater confidence. So much in my life has changed because my anxiety is under control. It’s all because of a natural chemical compound found in the hemp plant – CBD.
