CBD/Cannabis for Anxiety & Depression with Amy Chin
Show Notes

This week, Sam sits down with Amy Chin to discuss the benefits of CBD and/or cannabis for anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. They talk about how to incorporate plant medicine into one’s routine as a way to lead a fuller, healthier, and less stressful life. They also explore the nuances of cannabinoid use as it pertains to each person, and the importance of continuing to challenge the stigmas around the use of plant medicine, especially among moms/parents and the Asian community.

As a sufferer of anxiety and postpartum depression, Amy found great relief with CBD and from that moment, led to her passion in normalizing 3 big stigmas in the Asian community: cannabis, mental health and moms consuming the plant.
