Q. Can CBD help wiht anxiety
Sadly from children through to Adults anxiety is present in our lives. It is however normal to get a little anxious before an important event like exams , interviews and challenges.

*Generalised anxiety Disorder
*Social anxiety disorder

Contributing factors can be genetics , hormones,neurotransmitters can impact on how we deal with stress,environmental and lifestyle toxins. The biggest factor of anxiety is stress.
Chronic stress trains your brain to feel anxious it want you to “ remember “ this . So you can anticipate and then avoid more in the future .
