Can CBD oil help habituation because of anxiety!

Hi, I have been hearing good things about CBD oil, but if if masked my tinnitus, would this stop my habituation or help it as I have bad anxiety with it at the moment?

Thank you

I’ve been using CBD oil for a couple of weeks. I do feel calmer, but it’s done nothing for my t noises 😭

Do you know if it stops hibernating if you use it? Thanks

I’m not really sure, but anything that calms the central nervous can only be a good thing.

I’m guessing you meant habituation? I’ve habituated about 7 times since I got t 37 years go. It gradually becomes less important each day to the point you don’t notice it any more.

Take care xx

Last time mine was bad it took me 3 months to habituate again, but this is the first time I've taken cannabis oil.

Take care xx

Hi Buddie,

Can I ask how you take this oil and how much of it. Does it make you foggy or affect bp or anything...Im quite interested as it may help my health anxiety which is resurfacing again.

Thanks and sorry to hear your having such a horrible time at the moment x

I take CBD in tablet form. I'm definitely calmer than I was a couple weeks ago, but my t is sooooo loud 😢 Hasn't made me drowsy or anything.

Take care xx

Did you get the CBD tablets from your GP?

Hi Jenny

Mine were from Holland and Barrett. Think I might go for stronger ones next time.

Thanks Buddie, I will look into it, but run it past my GP first, just to be safe. I’m trying really hard to block my mind from the T this year, sick of thinking about it actually!

Hi Jenny I know exactly what you mean. I think about it every waking minute 😭

My tablets are 10mg and that’s equivalent to 8 drops of CDB oil. Where do you get your 1000mgs from?

I've just ordered this - 1200mg PROVACAN CBD Oil (12% Hemp derived Cannabidiol) says it contains 200 drops (I assume doses) per bottle. There is a company that does 20 and 40% bottles but they are extortionate x

I’m going to search Mr Google and find best dose to take.

Definitely feel calmer tho xx

Google Purekana, American suppliers, however info on their website is comprehensive and explains dosage in simple terms.

Fingers crossed it does what we hope it will x

Hi

What was the website you used?

Thank you

Hi,

I ordered from Provacan uk. Purekana have good info on how it works and dosage but they are based in America. From what I read its the THC in it that gets you high. If you buy from a reputable company most if not all THC should have been removed...leaving the cbd oil. Its supposed to gently, over time ease anxiety and improve mood.

We will see, but here's hoping.

Hi

It has calmed mine too, but as I’m not hearing as much, do you know if it will delay mine to habituate?

Thank you

Where did you get the 1000mg tablets from?

Reply

It was liquid form I got

It online at miracle CBD they sell

100-2500 Mg the higher Mg the better and don’t worry you do not get high off of it! You will start seeing results after 1- 2 weeks ! Good luck

How did yu get yur tinnitus? Was it from ototoxic drugs or hearing loss?

Reply

It was from drugs or stress, I don’t know which one

Reply

Does it lower the volume of the T?

Reply

It does lower mine, but it might be because it lowers anxiety

Reply

I’m looking into CBD oil because I have no other options and I’m really stressed out because my mother is passing away from cancer and my T is off the charts from all the stress so I really need something but I don’t want to feel high

Reply

CBD does not get you high !

So don’t worry about that. It does help

With lowering the T and anxiety that comes with it . When you order try and get the highest Mg I use a 1000 mg the higher

The Mg the more money it is. Try the web site Miracle CBD. Good luck !

I've posted this before, but it was a few months ago now.

I did a little dig around about six months ago on the PubMed database, and have found only one paper discussing the topic - and this seems to be theoretical rather than based on user experience.

You can see an abstract here: sciencedirect.com/science/a... but it seems to suggest that in theory, cannabis could make tinnitus worse.

There's been no research on CBD oil and tinnitus.

Best wishes Nic

CBD will not help, try Betahistine dihydrochloride, max dose, from your GP and buy from somewhere like amazon Bioflavinoids by Natureb Life 1000mg, together they help me , not 100%, but enough.....CBD is just an oil from the hemp plant, you would need cannabis oil...which is CBD with THC, without the THC, it will be of zero help, difficult to get

cheers and stay happy Alan

Hi Ivan, I've tried 3 different brands of Cbd since Xmas, at 5% then 10%, didn't work for me unfortunately, but my tinnitus is very extreme, full on head and both ears and both never lets up I wish you and the rest of us well, cheers.!

Thanks for your reply.

It did help at first, not so much now, I think the anxiety has got worse. Maybe need a higher strength.

Sorry to hear that and hope you get some relief as we all know how bad this is
