CBD Anxiety and Stress Relief

The amount of CBD you take sublingually (under the tongue) has a great deal to do with how successful your level of relief actually is. Too much or not enough CBD has the same effect of little relief. You have to hit the sweet spot which is the amount of CBD you take sublingually based on your body weight.
