I’ve Tried Everything for My Anxiety—Nano CBD Patches Actually Worked

Living with chronic anxiety makes every day harder than it needs to be, and now that I'm in my 40's, I'm determined to take control of my anxiety and finally find something that will give me the freedom to enjoy the life I've worked so hard to build.

I've tried everything, from prescriptions like Xanax that left me feeling in a fog, to talk therapy, which costs $120 a session and only helped me feel better for an hour afterward. It wasn't until I found NanoCBD patches that I was able to calm down and start feeling more balanced for longer than an hour; it completely changed my life. I didn't know anything about CBD at first, but now I want to share my journey with anyone else struggling like me.

When my oldest daughter first suggested I try NanoCBD patches for my anxiety, I was against it. I was born in the 70's, and always associated hemp with hippies looking to get high. I did some research and found out that CBD, or cannabinoid oil, is nothing like I thought. First, it's completely legal in all 50 states, and it comes from hemp, not marijuana. CBD has proven benefits, like tranquility, reduced chronic pain and migraines, and helps with sleep— but it does not have THC, the chemical that alters your perception and causes a "high." NanoCBD has patches that work like nicotine patches to slowly release CBD to your bloodstream and provide calmness and relief for 8-12 hours. They're safe, natural, free of toxins, and, at least according to the many reviews I found online, really effective.

The first time I tried a CBD patch, my kids and I were going to visit my mother in Arizona, across the country. Since flying always sets off my worst anxiety symptoms—panic attacks and sleeplessness, amongst others—I figured it was a good a time as any to try something new. I put one patch on the day before, a few hours before bed, and decided I'd try another before the plane took off the following afternoon. The patch worked pretty quickly, and I managed to fall asleep much quicker than usual, and stay asleep throughout the night instead of waking up in a panic. The next morning, on the way to the airport I was in a better more, feeling more well rested and balanced. Finally, I was able to just be, something people with chronic anxiety don't often feel.

A couple of months later, and I'm finding that I'm able to enjoy my time with family, focus at work, and take the time to do things I like without constantly second guessing myself. I use a patch every night to help me fall asleep, and then I carry one with me in my purse so I can use it if I am having a particularly triggering day. If you have chronic anxiety, you know that it can be completely debilitating, and hard for people to understand, since they can't see what's wrong like if you had the flu or a cold. NanoCBD patches have completely changed my outlook on life – they left me feeling calm and collected, without any adverse side effects, like I used to have with prescription meds. I know that a lot of people are skeptical like I was, but I'm living testimony that these things work, and if anxiety is getting in the way of living your best life, I can't recommend them enough.
