Default Experiences with CBD oil?

I just came across CBD oil (Cannabidiol, a legal derivative of the cannabis plant without the addictive ‘high’ constituents) and am interested in using it as an anxiety reliever.

I’m not currently on any medication. I never have been. This oil, which apparently you just have a few drops of, intrigued me as a less intrusive, more casual way of relieving anxiety symptoms.

Does anyone have any experience of it? Is it at all effective? Any side effects?

We had a discussion about this in November.

After reading a bit about it online, I decided that given the price to strength ratio of the ones sold online, I would be better to get it from the doctor. However I don't use the doctor (I've got SA) so I've not ended up being able to try it.

^ Will doctors prescribe it now? I wasn't sure that they would do now, even though it's legal.



I have heard that people find CBD oil helpful for anxiety although you do seem to need to get one that's high enough strength to really make a difference and good quality, high strength oil is obviously a lot more expensive.

Someone I know uses this brand https://synergyextracts.co.uk/ but again it is pretty expensive!

I became a rattler on Phenibut. It's tremendous for anxiety in the short term, I would say it is like being drunk but without the loss of motor skills.

However, you need to up your dosage constantly to maintain the effect, and when you reach a high enough dosage you become extremely drowsy and have problems with a slow breathing rate. I would frequently wake up panicking and out of breath because I had presumably stopped breathing.

Would not reccomend.

Not sure.

Given the price, it's the type of thing I would use if I was looking for work, to help me deal with phone calls, interviews and easing me into my new job. I don't think it would use it on an ongoing basis.

What strength would be enough to make it effective?

My friend just sent me a photo she took in the chemist of a big poster for this brand of CBD, so I guess this brand is at least legit.

CBD does literally no noticeable thing for me. Nothing whatsoever.
A small amount of THC on the other hand wallops my anxiety hard in the nose, and I can cope much more easily with whatever life chucks at me.

The CBD craze is all basically bull. https://www.muscleforlife.com/cbd-oil-benefits/ To sum up most consumer CBD products dont contain enough to have any significant effect whatsoever.

You know the worrying thing about CBD oil, Ok it all comes from the same plant as cannabis, they remove the psychedelic part and you have your cdb oil, they tested X amount and found a good number had high levels of the psychedelic part still in them. Now Cannabis was the original trigger for my anxiety issues, so rather than help it'll only make matters worse.
