Anxiety is best treated with a combination of things, including therapy, medication, meditation, exercise, and more. So while CBD probably won’t be a 100 percent cure for your anxiety, it could certainly help relieve some symptoms, especially when combined with other treatments.
CBD is derived from the cannabis plant, either the hemp or marijuana variety. But whichever plant your CBD comes from, it will not include enough THC to make you high (it legally cannot contain more than .3 percent THC), allowing you to get cannabis’ other benefits, like relaxation, anxiety relief, pain relief, and help sleeping.
Like with many things in life, everybody responds to CBD differently — so while CBD may drastically reduce one person’s anxiety, it may do absolutely nothing for someone else. Some anxious people swear by CBD, while others call it $50 down the drain.
