The distinction should be made that there are two kinds of CBD. One from the hemp plant which is federally available and one from the marijuana plant which is not, although should be! The CBD I take too is from the marijuana and definitely works for anxiety without a high. It’s such a shame that it is not widely available as it is far superior to the garbage the pharmaceutical companies are peddling. I was very skeptical of getting my medical marijuana card to purchase this but I’m so glad I did it. The CBD from the hemp plant Does not have the same medicinal properties so don’t get discouraged if you tried to pick it up and it didn’t work for you as I bet that is the reason-not comparing apples to apples.
