Who uses CBD?

Not sure how many responses I will get to this post... I was curious how many people use CBD oil, otherwise known as hemp oil (without THC, which gives you the high and makes you test positive on a drug test)?

I am part of an entire board on FB for CBD oil users. I started taking it for anxiety and panic attacks. I think it's helping. I am also going to start my mom on it for pain and neuropathy from Sjogren's Syndrome.

Dh uses it to manage symptoms from his chemo and cancer...He also is part of the therapeutic cannabis program in our state and uses THC to help stimulate his appetite.

I've thought of trying it for various side effects of my cancer. Where do you get it? How do you take it?

I just saw a board the other day for cbd users on FB the other day .... in the "you might like" section! I wonder if that's the one you are on?

Several people in my family use CBD. My cousin, who is a cancer survivor and also a diabetic uses it for nerve pain. My brother uses it for arthritis pain in his hands and wrists, and both my mom and MIL also use it for pain. They all swear by it, but stress the need to find a trusted brand and supplier.

I have a friend who gives it to her son who has had several brain surgeries after an automobile accident. It is the only thing that eases his pain.

My mom has expressed interest due to leg pain from chemo. I know nothing about it.

The FB Group is “CBD Oil Users”. It is a closed group but easy to get approved. Amazing info. Pinned post has reputable companies, and ones to avoid. I’ve learned so much about oils, vape, edibles, and terpenes. All of the recommended companies ship through the mail. Many people in the group have depression, anxiety, and terrible pain.

Feel free to PM me.

We've never used it but a lot of parents who are on my parents of bipolar/mood disordered children give it to the them and sware by how much it relieves their anxiety! We can get it at local health food stores, but its expensive.

I bought some lotions with CBC, but it doesn’t seem like it is very effective topically. Smells good though

I admit, I am curious about it especially for anxiety.
