A friend of a friend said the CBD oil really helped her anxiety. I did some research but am still a bit nervous about trying it. If you do take it for anxiety, do you take. CBD oil is proving to be a potent natural alternative to and I discovered that many users on CBD forums preferred the CBD with THC strain. Hello fellow BBIers. I was wondering if anyone here has had any success with taking CBD oil to help with their anxiety (or any of the other.

Both are very potent and work well for me. There isn't enough THC in it that you'll feel anything but it definitely calms me down, and it also greatly helped with pain when I got a tooth pulled a couple weeks back. Now some things that aren't cannabis related that work really well for me. Magnesium is a natural anti-anxiety. I recommend getting magnesium power, my favorite is Natural Calm by Natural Vitality the one that has rasberry-lemon that you can get on Amazon.
You can mix in with water or tea and it tastes pretty good. I also put it in a Kava tea made by Yogi called Stress Relief and have it before bed. The two combined helps me a deep sleep like nothing else. And someone mentioned Kava already, aside from the Kava tea I have, I haven't actually tried real Kava yet but I ordered a sample pack from a website that should hopefully come sometime this week.
If you read anything about it being bad for you liver, those are mostly false reports, there's a World Health Organization report you can easily find that states they found no conclusion evidence of Kava being hepatotoxic. My last recommendation to check out is Kratom. I've only had it a couple times when a friend offered while camping but I had a few drinks prior which I believe reduces the effectiveness of it. I feel like I need to try it again without any alcohol in my system but I felt the effects a little the first time I had it.
It does taste like grass though. Even though the level of THC is low, can it show up in a random drug test? Anybody in the same situation? I tried their CBD oil for pain and it helped. I no longer have that problem so I haven't used their product for a long time, but they seemed to me to be a very good company with a good product. Magnesium also actually helps more than people realize - but it's also important to take a more absorbable form.
Magnesium Oxide, for example, is not absorbed well and isn't as effective as Magnesium Malate. Jigsaw Magnesium is the best one I've found - I take that daily and it works really well.
Obviously magnesium on its own isn't going to completely alleviate anxiety, but it does help relax you a bit. It's especially helpful if you have RLS and have trouble sleeping because of it - which I do. In comment darren in pdx said: This is all very helpful, thanks! I'm going to stop at Walmart tonight to grab some Magnesium and that tea.
In comment Ira said: Just looked them up, they get outstanding reviews and it's very reasonably priced. Looks legit and high quality too. I have battled anxiety for the past few years and Dr.
Claire Weekes has done more for me than CBD or any pharmaceutical ever did. Drugs mask the issue. Make real progress by following her steps. Is this documented anywhere in a reputable journal FM? I might be able to convince them to let me drink at work Several authors have written about it.
I can't verify their competency, but hey - it is being written about - thus it is definitely true!! Drink up my friend. In comment DanMetroMan said: I bought some instant Kava from Kava Kalm for my son - he didn't care for it, but I mixed some in some chocolate milk and I really liked how it felt. Sort of a euphoric calming feeling, if that makes any sense. In comment Eli Wilson said: I was curious but the place by me had horrendous reviews for things unrelated to the actual Kava.
I read an article about magnesium and anxiety so being the anxious person that I am I ordered some and tried it. It definate relaxes me but, it seems to make me to drowsy at times. The stuff I have is a combo - Taurate, Glycinate, and Malate.
Any drowsiness from what you take? Also, how did you determine what your personal dose is I will try the Jig Saw. Generally positive, especially for nighttime anxiety and trouble sleeping. My daughter uses it for migraines. Drink up my friend Thanks If I print it out and show it to my boss it might come off more official. I am pretty sure you can buy Kava in any health food store I know Whole Foods has it. Two pieces of advice. From Colorado , Or California preferably. China sells tons of cbd oil and I'm pretty sure it's not even half as good quality.
Glad to see he's recommending to go all in with the strongest possible product. In comment UConn said: LOL yeah that's the last thing I'm going to do before I see what kind of effect a low dose has. Not to mention the price skyrockets as the concentration goes up. Hey guys - Yes, I take the sustained release magnesium malate that Jigsaw makes. I just follow the suggested dose. I take 2 in the morning and 2 later in the day. I haven't noticed any marked drowsiness from it, personally. I realized that I was probably even slightly deficient diet-wise.
A lot of people actually are and don't know it. I'd suggest maybe just starting with half the recommended dose at first and then scaling up - but it shouldn't cause any noticeable side effects or make you drowsy. It's perfectly safe to take daily - I feel confident that you won't have any problems.
Lastly, Bold Ruler mentioned Claire Weekes and I have to second that for anyone struggling with anxiety of any kind.
I read her book on Agoraphobia a few years ago when I was struggling badly and it made a major difference in my life. It's basic, simple, and can really make a difference.
We have a tendency to tense up when we get anxious. It sounds elementary, but the second you just stand or sit up straight, control your breathing, and relax your body, the anxiety almost automatically starts to vanish. Best of luck, fellas. This is a subject I know a lot about from many years of personal struggles - so I feel for anyone dealing with the same thing. Also, I'm sure you know this already, but Denny is the last person anyone should ever take advice from.
Super high doses of CBD can actually start to have reverse effects according to some studies. There's no reason to seek out the highest concentrations or highest doses. When it comes to CBD, less is often more. Start small and gradually work your way up a bit. You really shouldn't need to take that much. Sometimes as little as mg is all you need. I was also think as for anxiety issues as well.
I still stand by my statement to buy American grown and made oils as the imports are far far below our qualitys and likely use extra non organic solvents.. Stand straight, breathe well, relax the body. In comment Aloha Alan said: For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to fears, addictions and depression, and many enter through it. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. I smoke a decent amount of weed, and am familiar with CBD oil. Not, that I've ever tried it, but I know what it is. I guess the one thing I don't really understand though is, this idea that you are not alone in, and is floated around a lot that people are sick of medication, and instead want something natural.
From my POV, it's all the same thing. Switching one medication for another medication. The only real difference is societies view of what constitutes a "medication". But, if you are taking CBD oil, or Ginsing, or believe that believe that eating high doses of fruit loops helps you, it's still medicating.
They all still have their own host of side effects. Just because one medication is approved by the FDA, while the other grows in nature, doesn't really change that. The degree with which some people take this imo is kind of crazy and to be clear I'm not talking about you.
Like, some people would rather spend hundreds of dollars a months trying crazy natural stuff, because it's natural, when it's doing the same thing as the other meds altering brain chemistry, resulting in some positive stuff, and some negative stuff.
Sorry for going off topic a bit, but I guess my point is this. If you look online in the right spots, you can literally find positive reviews about anything. You say you're sick of medications, but the manner you are proposing to use CBD oil in, is still a medication. Just a medication that's illegal most of North America. There's still going to be side effects with it. The benefits are probably still not going to take away all your problems, just like other medications don't take away all your problems.
It may calm your body down a bit, I don't know, but it's not going to be a perfect miracle cure or anything that can be counted on for the rest of your life, imo. I would like to try it but it's not legal in my area. In Colorado I know its legal and some other states. Where do you live? If you are in an area where it's legal you can even grow it on your own. I have a solo arizer vaporizer. If it worked with oils I'd be all over those CBD ones. I've also heard things about it helping anxiety, but every one is so different, anyway.
It's so cheap, and IDK if it's illegal in some states, but it is legal to buy it online. It seems like something worth trying. Anything is when you're desperate or motivated enough, right? I have no idea how the stuff's ideally dosed, but I bought the one with the bigger numbers.
I took about twice what was recommended iirc 4 squirts under the tongue vs 2. Honestly I couldn't tell if it affected me at all, but sometimes I thought I did. Definitely nothing intoxicating, maybe minorly anxiolytic. It's on my list of "couldn't tell" alternatives. There is charlottes web available at dispensaries near me, tempted to try it. Regular THC strains are way too intoxicating to be a functional therapy for me.
Also if you live somewhere that dry bud is available legally, "leafly" is a good site to research high cbd strains near you.

Like maybe I'll notice a difference between a strong indica vs a strong sativa. But, all that leafly stuff, where they are treating weed, like a connoisseur would for fine wines, or beer? I just don't get that stuff. I just mean in terms of finding names of very low thc, high cbd strains, like charlottes web there are a few others. I'm a huge lightweight with "regular" weed, and couldn't tell you what it was based on how I felt. I don't smoke often, its results are pretty unpredictable for me, whether I feel good or bad.
