I just bought some online wo prescription from a place called the alchemists kitchen. I’m assuming it will fix everything.

anxiety is pounding away, it didnt do anything at all!
― cherry blossom, Thursday, 28 December 2017 16:11 (one year 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

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 (one year 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 (one year 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?
― infinity (∞), Thursday, 28 December 2017 21:02 (one year ago) link
Deodorant would be a good delivery vehicle
― calstars, Thursday, 28 December 2017 21:52 (one year 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 (one year 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.
― louise ck (milo z), Friday, 29 December 2017 19:32 (one year ago) link
I'll check that out thanka. contradictory information make this confusing - recommended dose so low!
― cherry blossom, Saturday, 30 December 2017 01:10 (one year 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 (one year ago) link
I think suppliers recommend such small doses to make the product look more affordable.
― louise ck (milo z), Saturday, 30 December 2017 01:30 (one year ago) link
Ime, non-medical stuff is of limited use because of low potencyCan you get legal? Or know someone who isn't?
― i believe that (s)he is sincere (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 30 December 2017 01:37 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year ago) link
if this doesn't work, maybe try the pills? higher doses to boot
― kolakube (Ross), Saturday, 30 December 2017 03:03 (one year 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!
― cherry blossom, Sunday, 31 December 2017 09:07 (one year ago) link
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 (one year ago) link
I just hold it as long as possible while working
― cherry blossom, Sunday, 31 December 2017 09:09 (one year 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 (one year 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
― cherry blossom, Monday, 1 January 2018 10:44 (one year ago) link
Ok, second try - gone with Bluebird 6X Hemp concentrate so maybe the stronger will do better
― cherry blossom, Wednesday, 3 January 2018 10:31 (one year ago) link
5mg in cappuccino, A+

Might be interested in a 10:1 CBD/THC thing.
― fields of salmon, Tuesday, 12 June 2018 02:46 (one year ago) link
I'm confused by this story
Is this a different CBD oil to the ones that are in sale in the UK?
― anvil, Tuesday, 12 June 2018 03:08 (one year ago) link
Something to do with the ratio of THC I presume, but its not particularly clear
― anvil, Tuesday, 12 June 2018 03:13 (one year ago) link
cbd oil not available on AmazonCan anyone recommend a source to order from for a US customer ?
― calstars, Sunday, 8 July 2018 22:27 (one year ago) link
Cal is there a licensed dispensary near you? Would recommend checking that if you can

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.

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 had the bartender put a few drops in my beer last week and mix it up. Horrible idea, turned it into soap and caused it to overflow.
― calstars, Wednesday, 15 May 2019 17:17 (five months ago) link
im a bit dubious about the benefits of cbd so i like to read things like that that are positive but measured

I am interested in trying CBD on as as-needed basis to manage/alleviate anxiety. Interested if anyone else has tried it and your results.
― fremmes with neppavenettes (rip van wanko), Wednesday, 4 September 2019 11:41 (one month ago) link
could be psychosomatic, but a small amount of cbd and I’m less self-conscious when being social. a middle amount and I’m falling asleep on the couch
― untuned mass damper (mh), Thursday, 5 September 2019 01:42 (one month ago) link
and it’s probably even more unlikely, but after having some cbd following a week where I had thc, feel like some residual good vibes popped up
― untuned mass damper (mh), Thursday, 5 September 2019 01:43 (one month ago) link
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.
