As long as theres no THC there shouldnt be an objection.

I tried the oil for anxiety but didnt really notice anything beneficial after a month so I stopped using it.

Its really quite expensive

Hi River,

The legal CBD in the UK is not psychoactive so in my opinion is just a medicine. I wouldn't regard using it as a relapse so try not to stress about it.

Here in the US everyone seems to be jumping the CBD bandwagon now that it's been legalized and it's showing up in foods, cremes, oils and pretty much anywhere it can be sold - people are really trying to cash in on the newfound availability. Having said that, very few of the benefits have been clinically proven and there's not much research on it. AKA - it's being marketed as a "cure all" for many things without a lot of proof.

Bottom line there's usually not a magic pill to fix all our problems in my opinion.

Serenity - if you are using something that is helping with another problem, I'd run it by your doc or therapist just to make sure and also check the ingredients just to make sure you know exactly what's in it.

CBD is a cannabinoid or chemical compound found in cannabis.

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is another but it is the main psychoactive constituent of cannabis
