    Trying Hemp Oil For Anxiety (Review)

    So I tried using hemp oil for my anxiety when I was back in Kenya and tried it once more when I came to Canada. Here are my thoughts about hemp oil for anxiety/insomnia. Just a heads up these are my thoughts and how my body/brain reacted to the hemp oil so it may be subjective. Pros Reduced anxiety– It definitely did reduce my anxiety.
