This is a deep question, and a very personal preference. What works well for one person may not be the optimal solution for yourself. In simplified terms, CBD is the preference for managing chronic anxiety, whereas THC is the preference for managing acute anxiety such as panic. What does that mean? Taking CBD every day produces long-term effects (general anxiety begins to ease after a few weeks), and taking THC on a situational basis produces immediate (right now) anti-anxiety effects. Be warned! THC is a double-edged sword… too much THC can cause anxiety! So start slow, take a little bit…wait… and then take a little more. As you work on (slowly!) finding the right dose for quelling immediate anxiety, you can take CBD everyday to help manage overall anxiety. I always love a breath mint—easy, subtle, and there are many simple low-dose options that taste great.
