Fear of public speaking is one of the most common phobias known to man, and ranges from being on stage in front of an audience to simply having a conversation with family or friends. Most people deal with this phobia in one of two ways: avoiding it completely or doing it anyway but being utterly miserable while doing so. Cannabidiol (CBD) offers an alternative. It’s a naturally-occurring anxiolytic, and was shown in a 2011 study, published in Neuropsychopharmacology, to significantly reduce anxiety in those with fears around speaking in public.
