July 18th episode of Mxiety was sponsored by Sunday Scaries, so we took the opportunity to learn more about CBD based on the little research that has been done so far.
Big Disclaimers: Please consider talking to a doctor before taking CBD, especially if you already take other medications, to make sure they do not interact. My experience with it has been very pleasant but that doesn’t mean yours will be. Be sure to check all the labels and lab reports of any CBD oil you do chose to purchase.
That all being said, check out my sources below.
