    Anyone here taking CBD oil? 1st Jan 18 at 6:54 PM
    I've been taking it a month, it's helped dramatically with sleep and anxiety, but the pain relief I initially felt is wearing off.. Do any of you take it and what is it working/;not working for?
    Many thanks to all who contribute on MSE

    I was just reading about it today and was thinking about giving it a try. My main reasons for taking it would be insomnia, depression and anxiety. Hopefully someone will be along soon that has some experience of it and can advise you.

    it's worth trying as it's really helped my anxiety and sleep.. I researched the companies as there are a lot of rip offs and settled on cbd brothers.. the purple and white are the best ones for calming. I use te purple paste as it is the most ecconomical as the dose is minute, 1/2 grain of rice /

    They won't reply to an email for samples, you have to check the drop down box a few times a day, it can take a few days, but they are very generous. I got about £50 of oils.

    I noticed the effect literally within half hour, it is a powerful relaxer, and kicks in quicly if you hold the oil or paste in your mouth sublingually, but overall within a week, I noticed that my mood was brighter and anxiety lessened. It has also added an extra hour or 2 to my sleep, which is great as I was only getting 4 or 5 I take it 3 times a day.

    Samples are now in stock.

    I think they are so innundated with requests, they seem to only deal with samples via the sample page.. glad you found some in stock, do let me know how you get on with them

    Thank you for coming back to me. rather than stalk for samples, as i have a rather ill dog where my vet has 'hinted/vaguely motioned in the direction of - without actually giving any advice or saying anything that might get him into trouble'............... i have bought so i'll see how this goes.

    I did therefore appreciate their pet statement in the FAQs

    Well my samples have arrived and I have no idea what they are, I ordered purple capsules and purple paste. There's 2 pots of capsules, 10x50mg and 5x100mg, and a syringe containing a dark coloured paste. I know they aren't allowed to advise on dosage so I think'll I'll just start with the paste tonight.

    Start with some paste the length of a grain of rice. Use that for a few days before increasing the amount.

    I've used the oil and the paste but haven't tried the capsules.

    You could ask on www.facebook.com/groups/1360500240656920/ - that's where I found out enough to get started.

    I know it feels like a stab in the dark when the companies are not legally allowed to give dosage advice. I take the paste, 1/2 grain of rice 3 times a day, but I haven't tried the capsules.. I think everybody is different, it's a process of trial and error to see what works for you.. . I think the capsules are meant to be longer lasting effect than the paste or vaping cbd, but less strong, because you don't absorb as much via the digestive system than sublingually. I don't want to contravene the rules of this board by giving "medical " advice, so best bet is to join a FB consumer group..

    There is a good facebook group; CBD CONSUMER GROUP UK/EU which has helped me feel less confused, but the me FB group looks good too

    Thanks for the help. I've joined both of those FB groups so I'm now inundated with information!! There's nothing on the pots to say which variety the capsules are, so if they work hopefully the company will know what they sent me. I'm giving my sleeping tablets and tramadol a rest tonight I'm going to give the paste a try

    Wierd that I should see this tonight. I've just discovered that CBD vape pens exist and can help with anxiety and pain, both of which are problems for me. I hadn't thought about sleep benefits (hence I am awake all night lol).

    Will look on the facebook pages mentioned.

    I've emailed them as well but will keep looking at the samples page in case some samples become available.

    minimad.. how was your sleep? Deannatrois, some good companies that are reputable for vape pens are synergy of nature and canavape, but there is a list of reputable supplies in the files section of the FB group. It's def worth it to keep checking for the free samples as they are very generous

    I felt pretty drowsy and really thought it was going to work, but as usual it still took over 3 hours to get to sleep I felt a bit weird as well for a few hours after I woke up and had a headache.
    I'm going to persevere though and see how things go.
    Do you think I can identify which capsules they've sent me by the colour of them? One lot do look purple which is what I requested, the others look brown. If not I'll ring them if either work particularly well.
