  3. Matthew De Smet on May 29, 2022 at 1:54 pm

    Found myself getting very stressed at work , started waking and baking and it got rid of the stress, decided it wasn’t sustainable being high at work and decided to try some cbd smoke in the mornings , found myself relaxed, not stressed or anxious about the day but crucially sober and not a dope

  4. Darnell Sproul on May 29, 2022 at 1:57 pm

    It’s great to see this… I have healed myself as well. Weedborn oils have helped me a lot.

  5. Light being Pontifex on May 29, 2022 at 1:57 pm

    the creams balms and vape pens dont really give you feeling,,, the pills gummies and chocolate do,,, (relaxed sleepy)

  6. Dale Wright on May 29, 2022 at 2:00 pm

  10. Miagi Fodder on May 29, 2022 at 2:02 pm

    I use CBD oil daily and sleep way better with nothing going wrong mentally. Just try and don’t look back

  11. Umbre on May 29, 2022 at 2:02 pm

    I think the best way to take cbd for anxiety is to vape 0mg e liquid with a cbd vape shot added to it

  12. Glenora D on May 29, 2022 at 2:02 pm

    Now that’s why I smoke CBD!! It really helps with my anxiety,depression, bipolar, and PTSD.

  13. Bhodisatvas on May 29, 2022 at 2:02 pm

    Had my first CBD ‘joint’ last month and I’m a convert, I think for the first time in my life I actually felt fully relaxed. Clear head, not high at all just a ton less stress and anxiety after the smoke, It was CBD weed with <0.2 THC. Not a smoker usually so trying the oil next.

  14. Bryan Lee on May 29, 2022 at 2:03 pm

    Instead of olive oil they should of gave mct oil so it’s not obvious whose the placebo plus most cbd is mct oil infused so minimizing confounding variables

  15. Arturo Reyes on May 29, 2022 at 2:04 pm

    Doctors should recommend cbd first then anti depressant

  16. Angel Morquecho on May 29, 2022 at 2:08 pm

    I get mad anxiety when going to my retail job hopefully this will help relax me.

  17. 777Boss 777 on May 29, 2022 at 2:08 pm

  19. McKinzie Matthews on May 29, 2022 at 2:10 pm

    I was on thc for many years, and am finally getting off of it, but having bad dreams and bad anxiety, so hoping that cbd would help me, don’t need the high, I want to enjoy life without a head change but the anxiety and dreams are pretty rough and think it would help me with lack of sleep!

  20. Lisa Oney on May 29, 2022 at 2:10 pm

    Thanks to #Druromi on YouTube for curing my HERPES Virus 💞💞💞. I am very grateful sir🙏 .

  21. Kjquincy on May 29, 2022 at 2:13 pm

    I moved to California and once I got here it seems like anxiety hit me hard mixed with depression but mostly anxiety. I stay in the house all day, it’s effecting my finances and social life. I had a panic attack on the highway with my sister and freaked out driving had to pull over. I don’t know what to do I never experienced anxiety this bad before. And it all started when I moved to California from the east coast.

  22. Cat L9ver on May 29, 2022 at 2:14 pm

    “Ask your family doctor” 😂😂😂 my doctor don’t know shit about CBD. Most doctors are taught to prescribe medication 💊

  23. Can you hear me Major Tom? on May 29, 2022 at 2:14 pm

    It’s like having the same effects of weed but without paranoia

  24. MattyB on May 29, 2022 at 2:16 pm

    anxiety wrecked me. panick attacks every day for months. i take cbd gummies and it helps

  25. Korsalath on May 29, 2022 at 2:16 pm

    I regularly get spikes in my anxiety. It’s more easier to deal with after school but I still get them. I absolutely can’t talk normally to people socially, it makes me wonder whether my brain is too tense or something. I’m schizophrenic so idk if taking medicinal cannabis will make me worse but I think it’s worth a shot if it helps my anxiety. I can’t afford a private prescription.

  26. Monk Amani on May 29, 2022 at 2:16 pm

    From illegal drug to wonder drug.

  27. #GiveMeThePills on May 29, 2022 at 2:17 pm

    Great 👍

  28. Nick on May 29, 2022 at 2:18 pm

    I didn’t trust any of the information regarding cbd for years. Just tried it recently and it definitely decreased my anxiety by a lot. So I bought a 3000mg bottle of oil of it lol

  29. H W on May 29, 2022 at 2:21 pm

    I’ve been using cbd for the past few months but recently it’s actually been triggering anxiety. Anyone else?

    Idk why but I still get high from smoking hemp and I get that feeling of paranoi and uh oh l shouldn’t have done this kinda feel like I do with THC just to a lesser extend but still an ugly feeling to have

  32. Stanford willis on May 29, 2022 at 2:23 pm

    Ok no, that’s not how this work. Marijuana is just a nickname, not a special strain. Hemp is an industrial version of sativa cannabis used in the mass production of cannabis but yeah, they’rebasically the same. Both contain THC and CBD. To get a 99 to 100% cbd weed, you have to wait from the tricomes to go from transparent, then cloudy(THC) to anber colour, basically the mollecules in your plants will break up and recompose into CBD

  33. JAYW0151 on May 29, 2022 at 2:24 pm

    Any1 whos smoked cbd hemp knows you can definitely still feel abit high from it

  34. Time for free time on May 29, 2022 at 2:24 pm

    supply and demand is out of balance for the time being

  35. Life is Overrated96 on May 29, 2022 at 2:26 pm

    I smoke hemp flower cbd from this local place that grows it here in Massachusetts, depending on the strain it can make you tired,uplifting, relaxed, happy…. it’s life changer becuse thc makes me anxious

  36. Jakey G on May 29, 2022 at 2:26 pm

    Anxiety is horrible, worrying for no reason.

  37. Domen Kunčič on May 29, 2022 at 2:28 pm

  38. River of Life on May 29, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    When I was in my 20s and 30s, I smoked weed, did all kinds of drugs, drank, and smoked cigarettes occasionally.

    Then in my 30s I had my first child, and Was convicted to stop. I figured, if I wouldn’t want my child to do it, why am I even doing it? I knew in my heart I had to change.

    So I was able to quit all of it, cold turkey, but then I started vaping with my wife.

    I just felt I had to keep some repetitive addiction in my life because I was so used to it. I started vaping but over a few weeks, my chest felt noticeably tight, my breathing made strange noises and I started to immediately realize something was wrong. I tried many different flavors, coils, devices etc and watched all the videos, to no avail, I just didn’t want it anymore. How was it that my heart changed? What changed my mind?

    That is when everything changed. I started reading the Bible and learning more about God and his love for me. How he put all of my sin, addiction and punishment on his son, Jesus Christ to cover my sin, porn addiction, drug addiction, vape addiction, lust and all other pain that was causing me shame and anxiety. That was destroying my marriage.

    For anyone reading this, Jesus is really real! The reason I follow Christianity over all the thousands of religions in the world (and I’ve studied several religions) is that Christianity is the only religion that says, none of us are good nor can we be good enough to get to heaven. So instead, God came to us to live with us on earth in a human flesh body – he became a man (in his son Jesus) and came to teach us the Fathers love and law, the law of love, he told us to love our enemies, to help the poor and to die to ourselves and pick up our personal “cross” and follow him. To give our lives to loving righteousness, not darkness, to get rid of our mindset and change (repent)

    Jesus then did the ultimate sacrificial love act – he hung on a cross, taking the payment for all of our sins of the world, then he rose again on the 3rd day, witnessed by over 500 witnesses and authored in the most famous book written in the history of the world! Jesus literally took Gods wrath for you and I, so that by believing in his name, we could be set free. And he took the wrath of the Father God “Yahweh” for us so that the perfect law could be upheld and he gave us a free gift.. Forgiveness.

    You CANNOT earn your way to salvation in heaven, because we are all sinners. (If you think your a good person, suppose we put a computer chip in your brain and recorded all of your thoughts over the last month) and then played them for everyone to see on a huge projector screen.. would people be horrified? Would you be embarrassed? That’s because God says that we are naturally wicked and evil and that none are good.. not one. We inherited sin and evil from the first temptation from Satan in the beginning.

    But Jesus had no sin. He was the perfect sinless demonstration of how we are supposed to be without sin. But each of us has addictions, pain, suffering, depression and the enemy wants you to stay addicted. He wants you to keep going back to that IDOL in your life. The Bible describes it as a “dog returning to his own vomit“ over and over again.

    Friends, I’m telling you, you can be set free from all of your addiction through Jesus Christ of Nazareth! Please open the Bible and read the words in the old and New Testament.

    Hebrews 4:12 “ for the word of the Lord is living and powerful and sharper than any two edged sword piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”

    Proverbs 3:5 “ trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight”

    Jesus said “ I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father but through me”

    “ for do you not know? That your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit? That you were purchased with a price! We are to treat our bodies as a living sacrifice

    Friends trust me for years I have struggled with lust, physical addiction to masturbation and I know that God can set me free and he can do the same for you!!!

    God wants us to not have addictions but to only want him.

    There is no other way to eternal life but through Jesus Christ.. if you are reading this right now there is a reason that my few paragraphs were brought to your eyes.. ask Jesus to take hold of your life and to reveal himself to you and he promises he will. Seek him earnestly! There is no greater decision you’ll ever make in your life! Im talking about eternity. Your life on this earth is merely a test, only a small strand of yarn compared to eternity in either Heaven or Hell.

    But there is a cost, you must turn from your sin, humble yourself and remove your pride. Satan‘s greatest sin was pride and he would not humble himself to God and today it is the very same sin that is causing so many human beings to fall- into all of the enemies traps and snares.

    I love you Friend- if you need me to pray for you simply reply to this message!

    Jesus loves you and wants to bring you onto the narrow path life, not the broad road of destruction which many will follow because their flesh desires it!!!!! Follow Jesus for everlasting life!! Or choose the world and all of its afflictions for death. The choice is yours!

    Jesus said “ for what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his own soul? “

    I’m praying that anyone who reads this will choose the FREE GIFT OF LIFE! CHOOSE JESUS!

    Anyone with anxiety or nervous system dysfunction should 100% give up caffeine in all forms and also should probably give up alcohol as well.because although it decreases anxiety initially it makes it worse once it wears off, I had anxiety for years getting off these too really helped and I sometimes use Cbd and regular cannabis and find them both very beneficial

  42. emma elson on May 29, 2022 at 2:37 pm

    Isn’t it supposed to help with THC high?

  43. PharoaSTa Entertainment on May 29, 2022 at 2:39 pm

    I’m going to give CBD a try. I see the benefits of it! We’re meant to be happy, strong and healthy people so let’s Do what we can in all ways make that a reality

    I got my medical card a few months ago and I just quit smoking so I could get a job, but I also noticed that whenever I smoke THC anymore to get high I have an overwhelming feeling of anxiety. I’ve never tried CBD for my anxiety but this video helped me learn the difference and I think I’m going to switch over
