You are correct. In large doses it does increase anxiety over time. Micro dosing THC is actually very beneficial. Regardless CBD should always be mixed for those already suffering anxiety. I would be careful of diazapenes like xanex. They are very additive and can cause depression if taken for more than a month. should only be used for very short term emergency basis. Stick with chewing whole peppercorn, magnesium, valarian root tea , chamomile tea, and vitamen supplements. Never heard of ashwagandha but if its natural its worth a try.
