anxiety is pounding away, it didnt do anything at all!
― cherry blossom, Thursday, 28 December 2017 16:11 (two years ago) link
I’ve noticed a few places use CBD as a catch-all term to mean any cannabinoid, probably because they don’t know exactly how much and what exact parts of the plant are extractedIt’s always good to inquire but even then when I use some of the gels on my grandfather, it has little effect on himI have another source of this particular gel and it looks almost identical, with the same wording, but this one has way more effect on him. Kinda buyer beware unfortunately In terms of the drops, it depends how long you’ve been doing it, body size and how you consume itObviously, IANAD, but if you haven’t consumed any in any form for years or you never have, and you are drinking it, 1-2 drops in some juice or something should do the trick. Probably twice a day depending on how bad your symptoms areYou can also vape it if you find a vapourizer that lets you vape liquids, but I imagine the dosage for this is different
― infinity (∞), Thursday, 28 December 2017 16:26 (two years ago) link
this is the one i did, and literally nothing. anxiety strong.
maybe it takes time to build up if you dont have the receptors?
― cherry blossom, Thursday, 28 December 2017 16:33 (two years ago) link
again, ianad, and this is kind of unsafe territory but you can try upping the dosage a tiny tiny bit (if you have a larger body mass low doses might not affect you much), but there is no build up necessary i wanna say?
i would try a different brand or even source if upping the amt/spray count doesnt help
good luck and be safe

CbD tolerance is definitely a thing. Some people feel nothing the first couple times they take a 20mg pill. What is the dose you're taking cherry?
― kolakube (Ross), Thursday, 28 December 2017 20:36 (two years ago) link
cannabidiol stays in the body 2-5 days
it looks like cherry is using a spray
cherry if you dont mind saying how long were you taking the recommended dose?

― calstars, Thursday, 28 December 2017 21:52 (two years ago) link
well its only second day of doing it so far!
i did 0.33, 0.33, 0.5 and 0.5ml (2.4mg, 2.4mg, 3.6mg, 3.6mg)
― cherry blossom, Friday, 29 December 2017 11:50 (two years ago) link
The studies that had a benefit for anxiety were using at least 10X that amount. I know that personally it takes about 40mg of CBD to have any effect orally.
For sources, ironically the CBD subreddit has the best list of suppliers with recent quality tests.

I'll check that out thanka. contradictory information make this confusing - recommended dose so low!
― cherry blossom, Saturday, 30 December 2017 01:10 (two years ago) link
Yeah I stand by what I said about not exceeding 60 mg to start but cherry those amounts are way too low!!
― kolakube (Ross), Saturday, 30 December 2017 01:11 (two years ago) link

sorry the mrs are correct, the mgs were wrong
4.8mg, 4.8mg, 7.2mg, 7.2mg in one day. still quite low by looks of it. I will try larger doses tomorrow, thats a lot of spraying though...many times during day, or fewer times with more spray?
― cherry blossom, Saturday, 30 December 2017 01:57 (two years ago) link
Fewer times, more spray, IMO. You could try however many sprays get you to 20mg at once for a starter?
― louise ck (milo z), Saturday, 30 December 2017 02:50 (two years ago) link
To put the amounts in perspective, THC is way more potent mg for mg and 5mg THC doses are sold as almost unnoticeable microdoses in legal states here.
― louise ck (milo z), Saturday, 30 December 2017 02:55 (two years ago) link
if this doesn't work, maybe try the pills? higher doses to boot
― kolakube (Ross), Saturday, 30 December 2017 03:03 (two years ago) link
I tried doing 20mg at once and there was some reduction in anxiety, fairly muted but it was there - though of course anxiety is variable!

the thing I don't understand about sublingual is, you hold it there for 3 minutes or whatever because it goes in faster, then you swallow it? but that mean the stuff thats still in your mouth hasn't gone in the sublingual way?
― cherry blossom, Sunday, 31 December 2017 09:08 (two years ago) link
I just hold it as long as possible while working
― cherry blossom, Sunday, 31 December 2017 09:09 (two years ago) link
The 3 minutes sounds like a general guideI assume some people can’t go a long time without the need to swallowAdministering liquids under the tongue ensures they enter the bloodstream faster without the so called first pass effect of breaking down/potentially losing its potency in the gastrointestinal tract, stomach, then liverIf you’re swallowing minuscule amounts of it, I don’t think it’s a big deal, especially since you are now taking way more than the product suggests
― infinity (∞), Sunday, 31 December 2017 14:08 (two years ago) link
so I massively increased the dose, and was doing 20mg at once the last few days, 6 or 7 times a day and....its nearly all gone. It did kind of work a bit. I think maybe a try the vape

I've been messing around with CBD for the last few weeks and have had best results from vaping high CBD low THC bud (surprisingly easy to get hold of in UK?!) It's like my body gets stoned but my brain doesn't? Really reduces pain in muscles and lessens body stress/anxiety. Not a wonder cure but any reduction in symptoms is welcome tbh.
― ( X '____' )/ (zappi), Monday, 9 July 2018 15:13 (two years ago) link
been using cbd oil for a few weeks, felt quite good initially but noticed i've been getting upset stomach a lot more. i have ibs but usually related to eating certain things. i wondered is it possible i'm swallowing it more than i notice when taking it sublingually. i find it quite hard to know how much is being administered and now i think about it, whether i'm properly administering it sublingually. i mean without getting ridiculous should i be telling myself to say "ah" like a doctor would when you're a kid.
alternatively i guess i could start vaping it instead? dunno where to start with that tho.
― FernandoHierro, Friday, 31 August 2018 15:27 (one year ago) link
i have a lot of chronic weakness and muscle pain and the first week it seemed to help a lot with that, i was exercising more and sleeping better, but the upset stomach just exacerbates those issues so it's become harder to tell how effective it's been.

I have experienced my Grandfather struggle with anxiety for the last half year or so. Two different sets of drugs didn't sort him out, mainly I think because the side effects absolutely knocked him side-wards (he's 86).
Anyway after a couple of friends extolled the benefits I bought a 10ml 250g (weakest stuff) CBD Ultra bottle for him, three drops under the tongue in the morning and he's like a different person this week. Could be a placebo but I hope this holds up.

the state cops busted someone running a business called "Your CBD Store" with storefronts in three local suburbs here. it's insanely vague whether it's actually illegal and a bunch of my peers have CBD products at home
at this point it'd be worth explicitly, at the least, making non-THC products like CBD available because mail order businesses are making bank

my conservative, very much not pot smoking seventy-five year old parents bought some "pet CBD" for their dog as she was dying of dog cancer a few months ago. it was their vet's suggestion apparently, and apparently pet CBD is no different from human CBD except that it's sold in a much less concentrated dose. anyway they said it really seemed like she was a lot more tranquil and it certainly helped her appetite in her last few weeks.
anyway, good for her and good for them and everything (and RIP Maggie the Goldendoodle, a gentle soul who is missed), but the whole experience made me curious enough to buy 30 10mg capsules for myself and I tell ya what, that wack ass shit didn't do a dang thing for this non-cancerous human except give me lavender oil scented burps and make me regret blowing $40 on it.

yeah the stuff the guy at the dispensary sold me was cut with lavender oil and had ridiculous ganesh-themed packaging designed to dupe scented candle/yoga enthusiasts (and me) into buying it. "achieve zen" brand CBD oil or something like that. I did sort of feel alrighter than usual for a few hours after I exceeded the recommended dosage and ate four of the lavender snake oil pills at once, but cmon $40? at that price how can anybody who needs to make that a habit make that a habit?

I swear by plain ol' melatonin for sleep issues, no CBD needed.
I recently read a book ("Suggestible You") about the placebo effect, which not only illustrates how some are more susceptible to it than others (perhaps a genetic trait), but how the problems the placebo effect is most effective in countering are often pretty much exactly the bulk of what CBD is typically purported to do. Pain, depression, nausea, insomnia, and anxiety, among them. (It's apparently also the cannabinoid receptors in our brains that enable to placebo effect.)
The way I see it is, until there's a study that says it's harmful, there's really no harm in trying, especially if you get results.

Fwiw I could have sworn I read that THC boasts all the effects of CBD, too. Btw, per that same book, apparently Prozac does not beat the placebos in trials. That's another human drug we give to pets for their benefit. I wonder if there is an element of correlation vs. causation, like the way people who talk or sing to their plants reportedly get better results than those who don't.

many xps to Jim - the oral dosage required for any effect on anxiety is immense (much higher than anything people buy at local shops/Family Video/etc.), it seems to be more reasonable with vaping
On a lark I bought some high-CBD legal/smokeable hemp, it was the worst thing I've ever smoked including unfiltered Camels.
