Caution: soap box ahead!
To everyone who says CBD has no effect:
- Did you buy a reputable and tested brand?
- Did you try a few different brands?
- Did you play with timing and dosage?
- Did you try a couple different delivery systems?
All treatments, especially chemical ones, can require trial and error to find the sweet spot. Many of us have done this with ADHD medication and it holds true with CBD as well.
You may not be willing to go to the effort and expense to do this trial and error, and that’s fine! But please resist then putting out incomplete info (“doesn’t work”) or warning others (“don’t believe it”). People are looking for helpful, thoughtful insights to help them make a decision on a very sensitive, important aspect of their lives.
We must always account for personal differences when we share. What doesn’t work for you might be just the thing for someone else. Please share your experience, your opinion – but please be careful what you put out there.
I have been taking CBD 2x daily for several months now in advance of being able to be prescribed meds. It really grounds me, smooths out the frantic “what am forgetting now???” feelings. I feel no altered or “stoned” feeling, and nothing inhibits my ability to function. Quite the opposite actually.
Details: I am using it in liquid form. I take 50mg (1 dropperful/1 ml) sublingually when I get up in the AM and another after lunch. My preferred brand is Lazarus Naturals high potency. I have also tried NuLeaf, which is also good. (Just so you know – it’s not made from weed; it’s made from hemp so it’s legal to ship anywhere. And cbdoilusers.com has coupon codes that help bring the cost down.)
That’s my experience as at 49 year old. Hope it helps,and happy to say more if you like.
