I was very excited when finding out about CBD oil. I have moderate to severe anxiety, and insomnia. I have been on a low dose of Xanax (1mg daily) for about a year.
I have tried multiple brands of full spectrum CBD oil and every time I have intense panic attacks with racing heart rate, intense panic, and fear. This usually lasts 8-10 hours. I have noticed no positive benefits, other then relief when it ends.
The brands I have tried are PlusCBD Oil, NuLeaf Naturals, and CBD Distillery. The doses I have tried range from 0.5mg to 75mg. All these brands and doses lead to panic attacks. Low doses also give me panic attacks.
So my question is this: should I just throw in the towel and say that CBD is not for me? I may just be one of the rare people CBD oil has only negative affects on. Is there a brand I haven’t tried that is better then the ones I listed?
I have looked up drug interactions and there are no known interactions or safety concerns between xanax and CBD oil. For those not familiar 1mg daily of xanax is consisted a low dose, with 3-5mg daily being common.
Thank you so much! This is a great community and CBD oil seems like a great natural resource. If there is a reason why I am having this reaction I would love to know.
