CBD capsules can most definitely help ease your anxiety and panic attacks. There is a variety of them, some with extra herbs that have calming properties e.g. Ashwagandha, Valerian, and Chamomile.
It is recommended that you start off with a low dose and slowly increase it to your sweet spot.

There are indications that CBD can help with symptoms of mental disorders including anxiety and panic attacks, although more studies need to be carried out on this subject. Already conducted studies show that CBD activates serotonin receptors. Serotonin is the key hormone that helps with mood, feelings and happiness.
You can give CBD capsules a try. I will advise you to check for the amount of THC in the CBD capsule before using it. This is because a high amount of THC can cause anxiety in some individuals. I would recommend you start with a broad-spectrum CBD or an isolate because of the absence of THC.
It is not quite hard to ascertain the milligramme of CBD in a CBD capsule because most capsules are filled with an exact amount of CBD. However, to determine the dose that is suitable for you, you have to start with a low dose, then gradually increase until you find the right dose for you.
Lastly, you should talk to a doctor before taking CBD with any drug. This is because CBD may affect the metabolism of some drugs. There are signs that CBD can stop the restlessness associated with anxiety but enough studies have to be done to confirm this. You can give it a try, but if you notice any negative impact, see a doctor immediately.
