Johnny Walker continued, “I’ve been arguing with my fiancee thinking about a bunch of crap and I’m not acting like who I really am. It affects me so much, I don’t know what it is The more anxious I get, the more CBD I take thinking “this shit will help me calm down” and give me more poison. I’m not saying [CBD] is for everyone, it’s good for anxiety , but not for me because I have ADHD [ADHD]. THC [for me] is not good, I don’t know.”
