    Oh, wow! I didn't know this existed. Is it legal, though? Is the THC effect noticeable or is it just present in trace concentrations?

    The problem with CBD is that it can cause vasodilation. But it surely does help some people with rosacea, but wasn't helpful to me.

    From my experience, cannabis oil is great for curing anxiety and panic episodes. As for the skin conditions, that might have some effect too depending on the amount of THC with CBD, that depends on which cannabis strain the oil was made of. For example, a homegrown Sativa is a good option to test it. You can even grow it at home with tents as mentioned on this page, of course, if that's legal in your state or country.

    I’m taking it with LDN only two drops a day.
    No flushing but weird anxiety dreams and I did wake up with my face and lips burning last night. But I tried Dermalogica gentle face wash last night.
    Does anyone else’s face pulse with pain at night ?

    Hello this is my first post and i also have problems with anxiety related flushing. My theory about why CBD could be helpful for this kind of flushing is due to the 5HT1A agonism which has been shown to attenuate stress-induced hyperthermia. The only other class of drugs that works reliably for this is benzodiazepines (which comes with the problem of dependence/addiction.) From what i've read betablockers seem to have no effect on this paradigm, which may be obvious to some since they're not psychotropic. A cheaper alternative to CBD in this context could be buspirone (which many would consider to be a more "serious" drug.) Of course these drugs would only help if flushing is actually caused by acute stress. I hope this information is somehow helpful to anyone, please correct me if i made any mistakes.
