    Default CBD Oil?

    Who takes it? What do you take it for?

    My wife has anxiety and is interested in taking it. There is a shit ton of hype and a million different pop up companies. Is this stuff for real? Does it help with anxiety? What dose do you take? What brand do you use?

    I did a search on here and did not see anything posted about it before.

    Thanks fellas...

    cbd oil is a derivative of hemp. ie marijuana. i've heard people use it to ease pain. problem is if they use it, and the doctor knows, they can not prescribe any pain relievers, due to the gov't regulating it that way. the reg doesn't make sense, but since when has the gov't made sense of late.

    Yeah I am well aware of where it comes from. I was just interested in if anyone on here uses it and if its snake oil or not?

    My wife uses CBD in the form of creams for muscle and joint pain. We both have used it in edible gummies for overall well-being. She swears by it on the cream for pain. We've had mixed results for well-being/anxiety. I'd say it depends on the amount and quality of the CBD in that case. We have had gummies from two different places, and the first one was great, felt calmer, better. The second place's gummies didn't seem to do anything at all. We were supposing that the concentrations or quality must have been different between the two places.
    Thanks CH3NO2 thanked for this post

    I used small amount 8-16mg a day a couple months....
    Don't know if it's from CBD or not for sure but got to the point I was knocked out at night and felt like crap all day. The feeling of not wanting to do a thing at all.
    Anxiety went away, but I felt tired. Again it may be just co-incidence. I had flu, did too many Phlebotomy's and iron got a little low plus my Free t4 levels were low.
    All other labs were good mid January!!!
    Anyway I don't like to feel tired or depressed and I did. Felt same as I did when I smoked pot as for as not wanting to do a dam thing!!! CBD didn't give me a buzz but a relaxed feeling and better sleep but over time I had that feeling of not wanting to leave house, could sleep all day and do nothing!! I will not be using it again unless life takes a super turn towards the up and stress is there. Working for myself I gotta find work when regular clients don't need me. Had no desire to even do things around house.
    Just a grateful member!!

    CBD is part of marijuana (pot) or it's also extracted thru hemp. Pot that has lower ratios gives more if paranoid energy buzz. Pot that has alot is couch buzz!!! This is fact they have breeds with different ratios to suit the user or symtom!!!
    Synthetic weed (legal weed, kush, spice, etc) scientists have narrowed down the differences in issues it has to be more psycho stimulate because it contains 0 CBD!!! So CBD is like a regulator in pot or difference between pot. Alot of THC and lack of CBD or more CBD to THC etc.... THC psycho stimulate CBD stops psycho stimulate....

    So that is best way to explain. CBC is part of pot that is also in hemp not psycho stimulating but helps with anxiety, pain, and sleep!!! But can make some of us feel like that we smoked pot without the buzz and have the hang over sleep part of it left affecting us!!! Lol!!! My experience anyway and my wife too.

    I prefer to vape some time to time but just for sleep taking oil daily had accumulating affect to me!! And I used it low so.... I must say I am also on Adderall for adhd and feel it blocked or stop the stimulate affect I need!!! Not for me!!!
