Update: CBD oil for my depression

Hello my friends. I had posted last week about the depression I had and discussed trying CBD oil!

Well, I started last weekend and I do feel better and yesterday and today I did not have any sad moments at all. There is no THC in the oil so luckily it doesn't make me high or anything! They told me it could take a few weeks to see full effects, but I am optimistic that this will work🙏🙏🙏

I take 1000mg of CBD daily. It helps me sleep but I also take Lexapro for anxiety and that’s a great help. I work full time, too. I hope you feel better each day.

Hi spiffy

I’ve just bought some CBD oil as I’m going through a bad patch at the moment..my oncologist wants me to take an antidepressant but I declined..not keen on going down that route ( yet!)

Will see if it helps..I have a lot of pain from a fractured vertebrae and I’ve read it helps with pain as well..hope so

All the best

Hi Barb! I'm holding off too and see if this will work first. Hugs to you❤️

Barb - I’ve used the CBD tincture and it’s helped my sleep and my stress level. I don’t like smoking as it’s too harsh. The CBD oil is indeed low THC so I’m quite functional with it. Good luck

Hi susie

What brand/strength do you have?

I got some from Holland and barrett but made no difference..waste of money and it’s very expensive

I haven’t used it yet...but know people who have with great success...good luck!

How long did it take for you to feel a difference and how often do you take it. After my first diagnosis and went into menopause I had terrible depression and anxiety. I got it under control with meds but when I went on a trial this last time I had to switch drugs. I am off the trial and back on what I was before but it hasn’t gotten the anxiety totally under control and I still have to take .25 Xanax 3 times a day. Would love to get off that. Thanks.

Kim, I just saw your question. Sorry for the late response. I started with 3 ml which helped that same week. I now take 2ml/day and do feel better, (some days are better than others), but I do feel better This oil is expensive!! But I will continue to take it.

Thanks. I have started it and have dropped another dose of Xanax and am now down to 2 a day. It is kind of expensive but we are worth it!!

Thanks Marianne❤️

I started taking CBD for sleep, it helps.

I take CBd oil every 4 hours. The 4-1 tincture. The brand is Care By Design.

Works with Advil. The pain is about 80% less.

Good luck

I'll check that one! Thanks. I can't take Advil, as I'm taking meds for a DVT as well❤️

I just ordered some ( with terpenes, thank you group) for my next migraine 😸

Great Laura! I so hope it works for your migraines. Please let us know.

I became an affiliate for Hempworx. If you refer 3 customers you get free products. I had spine & rib pain before I started taking it. Now I’m pain free. I sleep an entire 8 hours. They also sell hemp infused coffee which is great.

I also use hemp infused cream that I use on my wrists and hands when my arthritis acts up. It does give me relief. It’s by Charlotte’s WEB.

Charlotte s Web seems to be a reliable brand I think

Glad to hear you have gotten relief from the cbd oil.
