Does anyone use or take CBD products or oils?

Keep seeing CBD everywhere in articles and even our local health food had it advertised in the window.
Does anyone here use CBD oil in anything (coffee, cakes etc) and most important of all, what is the feeling you get from taking it!
My cannabis smoking days are long over, but interested to hear thoughts on this latest "craze"

    I got a load of junk emails about it and decided it was snake oil.

  • I tried it, it was useless.
    My Mother tried it, she said it was useless
    My other half tried it, said it was useless.
    My daughter tried it, she said it was useless.

    So I did some research with real people and I have yet to meet anyone who has used it and say it works well.

    You might as well use olive oil.

    I have used CBD oil occasionally for anxiety and it has definitely helped. No "feel good" rush, just helps clear my head and I can put things in perspective. I use a brand that advocates using a low dose and build up until you find the "sweet spot" that works for you. They believe many brands are too potent and can actually exacerbate symptoms. Their FB page has lots of information and personal experiences.

    "Cheap", "Fast", "Right" -- pick two.
