In order to know how CBD can help you with anxiety it’s important for us to understand what CBD is. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the at least 116 cannabinoids inside of the hemp plant. Hemp is a cannabis plant like its better known cousin marijuana. However, unlike marijuana, which is high in THC it can’t get you high. In fact, it is THC, which is another cannabinoid, in marijuana that gives you the high or euphoric feeling. Hemp only has trace amounts of THC meaning that it doesn’t give you a high feeling, but it can help with anxiety, pain, and inflammation.
