When I first learned about CBD oil, I’ll admit I was a bit sceptical. My mind immediately turned to weed and the unnerving experiences I’d had with heightened anxiety in college. For me, a person who is already predisposed to overthinking, marijuana, no matter what the form, would typically put my mind into overdrive and result in a common yet dreaded side effect: paranoia.
A bit of online digging led me to realise that the active ingredient in Charlotte’s Web Everyday Plus Hemp Oil, the product I had been offered to test, was the chemical compound CBD, which stands for Cannabidiol. Unlike THC, the other crucial compound in hemp and marijuana plants, CBD does not produce the psychoactive effects that make you feel “high”; instead, it actually eases anxiety and makes you less likely to freak out.
