The world just won’t stop, will it? Duly, nor will the anxiety, the sleeplessness and the unshakable sense of all being unwell. There is no panacea — unless someone has a secret passage into an alternative reality in which none of this happened. Anyone?
Failing that, you could also try CBD. Advocates (and there are many) say it relieves pain, calms racing minds and can help you sleep better. For those who missed the wellness train the first time it left the station CBD — or cannabidiol — is a non-psychoactive chemical found in marijuana plants, which doesn’t contain the active THC that gets you high. And in lockdown, there’s been a boom: CBD brand Trip — which makes CBD cold brews and oils — reports that its sales have doubled since March 23, and it has witnessed a 300 per cent increase in website traffic engagement.
