I tried CBD oil to help with my anxiety -- and I'm still not sure that it worked

Studies have shown that cannabidiol (CBD) can reduce anxiety in people with generalized social anxiety disorder.

Here's author Jennifer Still's experience of trying out various CBD products to help with her anxiety.

After hearing positive things about cannabidiol (CBD) oil's effect on our ability to relax and de-stress for those with generalized social anxiety disorder, I decided to give it a go.

Flickr/Tom Britt I decided to start taking CBD oil while staying in the UK, which meant that I was looking for a product made and sold in this country to purchase.

This is pretty middle of the road in terms of dosage, with products available in as low as 2% and as high as 40% concentrations online.

CBD is a separate substance which contains no THC, so you won't get high when taking CBD as a supplement.

That means further research on CBD alone is needed.

I was curious about the idea of vaping CBD oil, so I ordered a vape starter kit.

I also tried CBD gummies, though the lower concentration of CBD in each dose meant that I didn't experience the same positive effects as I did with the oil.

However, I'm also aware that other lifestyle changes I've made, such as improving my diet, taking more time away from work, and upping my exercise routine, have likely had just as much of a positive impact on my anxiety levels, so I don't want to give the CBD oil too much credit.
