Hiya and :welcome: to the forum. I am not sure about CBD oils as to how effective they are. I know that therapy of some sort helps immensely. Is there anything near you? You are not alone on here and there are many people who understand. Have you ever tried Mindfulness to ease the worst of the symptoms? Its not a quick fix and needs daily work. You will need to look it up to get the most benefit from it. We have a very brief intro on here which will give you an idea.

I agree with you on money. I think we should save or at least spend less and equip ourselves for a rainy day. Find a better coping method, cannabis is not always a good thing. DO what you are thinking of not doing socialise with others in a form and take things from there.

CBD to me is just another gimmick that's promoted with the power of persuasion. Using marijuana caused high levels of anxiety and paranoia.
