“I had no idea, and only found out about four or five months ago, that CBD has a small amount of THC, a small percentage, and I’m extremely allergic to THC. It gives me schizophrenia, panic attack I’ve been on drugs every day for the past three years and I didn’t know it It’s not strong it’s a small percentage but my brain is super sensitive to these substances and I didn’t know it.

Johnny Walker continued: “I was arguing with my fiancée all the time, thinking a load of bullshit, not acting like myself. It affected me a lot and I had no idea what it was. The more anxious I got, the more CBD I took, thinking “this shit will help calm me down”, and I drugged myself more with the poison. I do not say [CBD] it’s like that for everyone, it’s good for anxiety, but not for me, who is hyperactive [ADHD]. THC was no good [for me] and I didn’t know.
