As a habitual overthinker, sometimes I surprise myself with the level of anxiety random situations can cause. Sometimes, it might be something that has never caused any stress or anxiety at all, but BAM, there it is. A friend of mine saw how I was struggling from time to time with different issues and suggested I check out I was elated to find that they had so many different types of CBD, which proved to be helpful because my anxiety would peak its head in a variety of ways. Here are some common (and some random) situations in which stress and anxiety can arise, and CBD can help. 


Everything is going good until your plane hits that invisible dip in the sky. After that dip, also known as turbulence, you start to imagine the 101 ways you might not make it off the aircraft. It doesn’t have to be that way. Did you know an estimated 20-30 % of the population has anxiety when it comes to flying? CBD can prove to be helpful whether you’re embarking on a 14 hour flight or a 4 hour flight. So, next time you hop on a plane, chomp down a few CBD gummies before and rest easy while you play sudoku or watch the horrible in-flight movie selection. 

The Dreaded Blind Date

We’ve all tried it, especially since we are living in a time where technology is with us from the time we wake up until the time we go to sleep. More people are finding it normal to meet the love of their life online. That’s fine and all, but it still makes the first real meeting awkward in some cases (ok, maybe most cases). So, you’re sitting there trying not to make too much eye contact, all while trying to wrestle down the elephant seated at the table with you guys. Next time you have the pleasure of going out on a blind date, take your CBD vape pen with you and take a few puffs before you walk in. You’ll be so calm and cool that the date has no choice but to be a success. CBD vape pens are perfect for quick relief because it goes straight into the bloodstream through the lungs. 

Family Functions

Maybe your family functions are picture-perfect: there’s a schedule, everyone chatting about pleasant topics, cocktails are served, and everyone drinks in moderation. Or, maybe your family functions are the complete opposite, and that’s why you don’t go home that often. It seems like you might need a strong, steady dose of CBD for these occasions, and CBD capsules are great for situations like this. My go-to capsules are 25 mg each, so I start with one in the morning and take one later in the evening if I feel it’s needed. 


Fear of being on the road is a real thing for some people. I was perplexed when it happened to me because I never used to have any issues driving, but suddenly, I was clamming up on the freeway. Sure, I was in a new city with a few more million people, but I still couldn’t understand why my chest tightened, and hands began to sweat when I merged on the dreaded 405 freeway. This is where the CBD pen also comes in handy because you can use it quickly and easily when you feel anxiety creeping up on you. I used CBD with a combination of making myself drive for as long as I could on the freeway to conquer my freeway anxiety. It worked like a charm!

Interview Day

Looking for a job can be exhausting in itself. You’re constantly updating your resume, sending out your resume, taking phone interviews, etc. Then, you finally get the call for an in-person interview. It’s a job you really want, and it could kick start the career you desperately want to pursue. So, when you get that call, start your day with a few drops of CBD tincture, practice your interview questions, so you can walk in and OWN that interview! CBD will balance out those nerves and allow you to answer those questions you practiced with style and grace!

Meeting Your Future In Laws 

Your significant other has finally popped the question, and now you have to meet your in-laws. This might not be an issue for most, but there are some of us who will make more out of the situation and possibly self-sabotage the whole ordeal. Think about poor Greg in “Meet The Parents.” So, if you are facing this situation soon, check out the site I mentioned (or any other site you might fancy) and see what option is best for you. The options are endless here. Personally, I would take a CBD capsule before I went to make sure I maintained my cool all while making a great first impression. I think being discreet about your CBD use might be the best route to take while trying to make that great first impression because you don’t know where they stand with CBD use. If that is the case, they might just lack the education on CBD, and you can fill them in later once they love you!

Social Anxiety Is Real 

There are a number of different types of anxiety. It seems that social anxiety doesn’t receive a lot of attention, but it is a real thing and affects roughly 7% of Americans. So, whether public speaking gives you anxiety, or just simply having to be around people in a work or school environment, you can find a CBD product to give yourself the balance you need to be successful in whatever it is you need to do. 

Anxiety doesn’t have to be debilitating. CBD is giving people the freedom to open up and live their lives without having to stress and over analyze every aspect of everything. It has, without a doubt, helped me in a number of different situations. CBD has been studied and proven to be effective for decreasing stress and anxiety and there are a number of discreet ways to incorporate it into your life. Give it a try, I mean, what do you really have to lose? If you don’t, you might be missing out on something that has the ability to enhance your life in a way you’ve never imagined possible!
