Does anyone use it to relax? I know some people say it makes anxiety worse. What are your thoughts?

I haven’t, but it may be worth googling some of the side effects as I would probably end up with more anxiety over analysing those!

If it works, I see nothing wrong with using it from time to time. For me, it definitely gives me intense panic attacks, unfortunately. But for others it seems to work wonders.

I'm kinda torn. I used to smoke a TON when I was a kid. Then one day I got something that was laced and had a really bad experience and ever since then it did me more harm then good. However, now that it is becoming legal in alot of areas, I have been buying it legally and trying it out again. I feel better knowing that I am buying it from a store that has to go through tests and quality practices to make sure it is up to standard. I understand how it could make some people feel uneasy. It does make me dizzy sometimes or kinda spacy, which could induce an attack if you focus on that. But if you can get past that and focus on something else, it does seem to help quite a bit. I took a couple puffs before bed last night and got the best sleep I have gotten in quite a long time.

Makes you paranoid. Anxious too. Some people claim they have a heightened sense of awareness when using it. That would be the paranoia. Aware of every little thing going on around them.

I tried it in college and it either did nothing or made me extremely paranoid so that’s a no go for me.

CBD oil works for me. I don’t use it every day but once in a while when I can’t lessen my anxiety in other ways. There is no THC so you don’t get high at all. Some say it helps with sleep although I don’t find it makes me sleepy at all.
