Tell me more about this CBD of which you speak.
Basically, my understanding is, the primary active parts of weed are THC and two cannabanoids, CBDs. THC is the only one the US is permitted to study, so we don't knoe a lot about the others. However, medical patients reports all of the known benefits without the paranoia or euphoria that THC provides.
High CBD bud is a lot like a muscle relaxer/Valium. I was worried I'd miss the high, and I'm not sure I can give it up 100%, but the CBD removes most of my symptoms. It feels like nothing in the way ibuprofen feels like nothing, it's the absence of symptoms that's the thing.
I could be wrong about a few of those points, I'm not well versed, but I know what I like.
There are weird restrictions that are hard to get around, like; researchers can get pure THC oil, but not CBD or whole cannabis oil, for studies using rats in self-administration. Inhalation studies with rats (as opposed to IV studies, which researchers hate because nobody injects marijuana!) require using oils rather than the whole plant, for practical reasons involving not setting your lab on fire.
The CBD honey sticks definitely take the edge off the anxiety and the unsettled ache, but without messing me up or flat-out numbing me the way Xanax does. Interestingly, endocannabinoids are a mediator in the stress response, but nobody is exactly sure what exogenous CBD is doing because it doesn't seem to be targeting the same receptors.
