04 Apr Can CBD help treat symptoms of anxiety?
Personally, I’ve been struggling with anxiety lately. I am not OK, but I’m doing everything I can to try and be OK. I’m going for spa days, eating out, and trying my best to unwind. But the anxiety is always there. Last week I had an anxiety attack, which I thought was a heart attack, I haven’t had an anxiety attack in years. I’m now looking into CBD options to try and help with my anxiety.
I’m not the only one
