  1. "This video does in no way shape or form replace medical advice"
    goes on with what is essentially a drug infomercial
    Ummm, maybe if you actually made an unbiased video, you wouldn't need that disclaimer.
    Also, you kind of lost me at "CBD is one of two compounds found in cannabis". There are at least 144 cannabinoids that have been isolated from cannabis plants.

  2. Cannabis is not "intoxicating" because neither thc, cbd or any of the other cannabinoids are toxic to the body.
    Alcohol is toxic NOT Cannabis
    Nicotine is toxic NOT Cannabis
    Trump is toxic NOT Cannabis

  3. I smoked 3 cbd sticks from a pack and I felt mad relaxed to the point were I couldn't move from my couch high and over relaxed are very different but it sorta felt like thc without the anxiety and constant fear of my grandma finding out im clapped out of my mind

  4. Quit smoking weed maybe 3 months but just got this lazarus cbd tincture and i gotta say it’s pretty good for my generalized anxiety and social anxiety so far. It’s subtle unless you keep dropping then you feel real chill and calm.

  5. If you get hte right stuff it can make such a difference! Started using a THC-free oil from eden's herbals and really cut down on my social anxiety!

  6. CBD has helped my anxiety so much. I had a hard time finding the right product and company after trying countless bottles of CBD oil a friend recommend Eden's Herbals, I would highly recommend them. They have both full spectrum and isolate! Fast free shipping too!!

  7. Americans are so wierd when it comes to health. Why would you start a health related video like a commercial? It made me nauseous.

  8. Try Full Spectrum CBD oil from Portugal! (Leaf boutique Portugal) very good quality and the best price that I have seen ever))) 89,95€ for 30ml / 3000mg. But they sell only in EU

  9. I have anxiety disorder but quite chronic. I have smoked weed (thc) before but stopped when my anxiety started to get bad and led to me having paranoia. I wanna try cbd without feeling high

  10. I ordered this cannabis oil from one Dr. Alex James and it was delivered to me. My husband who was very infected with colon cancer, he was even seen to live for 6 months, living for the family was a living hell with sorrow in the heart, but today I am telling the world that cannabis oil saved my husband from dying, He is still alive and we are in the 10th month, God is so great, Thanks to Dr. Alex James that sold the hemp oil to us that we used in curing my husband's illness, Once again I would like to thank Dr. Alex James for his wonderful Hemp Oil, I'm happy to have my husband back alive strong and healthy.

  12. CBD had a frightening affect on me. I had the worst experience ever. Very strong side affects including major mood wings, anxiety, and I had no idea what was happening so I was tripping out. I felt like I wasn't even in my own body.

  13. It was a worrisome day for my little sister when I discovered she was suffering from the HPV virus, I never knew she will get healed because it was such a terrible diseases till I met this herbal doctor saviour whom cured her from her HPV virus of 18years😭…. firstly it contacted him through my boss in the office whom the herbal doctor cured from aids according to him, he was searching for cure of aids online when he came across his contact with the viral good news of people of how he cured plenty and many incurable disease he decided to give a try and then days after the herbal drugs arrived and he took it and his health was reading negative from the deadly virus.

  14. I am trying to lose weight since I gained during quarantine and let me tell you the Forwago is THE way. I've tried Emi Wong, Chloe Ting, Tenx, and a bunch of other workout videos and plans for a while and none of them showed any true results. The only one that worked for me is Forwago.

  15. Could I use CBD for social and general anxiety? I’m a 15 year old and I’m also taking medicine for anxiety but i want to try and get maximum results because my anxiety is still chronic.

  16. My anxiety has gotten worse as I get older. The other day I was playing basketball and had a group of guys ask if I wanted to join them. I said no thanks and immediately stated I had to get going. That’s just an example. I’m tired of feeling this way. Any CBD product recommendations? I also just got this new job and and constant anxiety on the field.
