    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

    A little update - My lovely dog has Crohn's.

    He was having a massive flare up which he was under the local animal hospital as he was so unwell - the symptoms literally stopped dead with the first dose. He's also improved in mood and activity so i am very very pleased.

    On a side note i suffer with restless legs and on nicking some of the dogs capsules its also worked for me too.

    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 /

    I have taken maybe 6 doses of oil under my tongue, over three months I only take it when I need to break the pain cycle, when I feel that my back is compressed and causting sciatic pain. I do use a teeter inverter, which stretches out the disc spaces but in the meantime the cbd oil gives some extra help and breaks that cycle so that I remain straight and comfortable

    I have one spare bottle put away and more than half the first small bottle left, I use 1/3 to 1/2 pipette at a time. I only use the highest quality oil at 1000mg strength, which costs a great deal of money and I get it from

    Now I have tried cbd, I will not be without it but will only use it when absolutely needed

    I've been using CBD bros purple paste, grain of rice size, and one 50mg capsule for just over 2 weeks. I was hoping it would help my insomnia but it's no better. It seems to be effective for other people though.

    Received my sample of green paste and purple paste today. Tried half a grain of rice worth of purple paste. Under my tongue, tastes a bit earthy.

    "Blimey.....good stuff this" turns out I was experiencing the Welsh earthquake all the way here in Manchester!

    I've tried the green paste, purple capsules and blue oil and none of them have had any effect.
    Any advice on which one I should be taking for anxiety?

    Many thanks

    I've ordered some for my husband from Holland and Barrett and am hoping it helps with his aches and pains...Only problem he's wondering whether to declare it to his site foreman on the building site.

    My weekend visitor (from Germany) was trying to get some here so I ordered it online for her. At the same time I ordered some for myself, hoping that it would ease the osteo-arthritic pain in my right knee though I was sceptical.

    Two and a half days in and I'm impressed. I've got the raw stuff, taste is not so bad, and my pain has certainly eased a whole lot, in fact I'm mostly plain free at night. The night time pain was the worst as I would often wake up because of it.

    I ordered from https://www.fortheageless.com/ and it arrived the next day (ordered two bottles).

    Fingers crossed for continued benefits.

    If you're on Facebook, join one (or both) of these two groups. They have a wealth of information and lists of recommended/reputable CBD product suppliers:

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/CBDConsumerGroupUKEU (this one requires you have your groups, likes and friends list publicly visible when you request to join. Can change them back once accepted)

    There's no reason why you shouldn't (never act on the advice of just one person ), but the recommended suppliers there will have balms and creams with far higher CBD content for a not dissimilar price. That Isodiol doesn't even appear to state how much CBD it contains, which is highly suspicious, and some of it's products appear distinctly snake oily. You will get more benefit from a specific CBD product, and there are plenty of posters in those groups who get good results from CBD balms

    I have fibromyalgia, neuropathy and CFS and cannabis oil has made a huge difference to my pain levels! I've just been taking 3 drops twice a day.

    I use the green and purple paste. Tastes absolutely awful although you do get used to it. I don't know why but I haven't been able to get into the habit of taking it when the pain is bad. I'm only using it when nothing else helps.

    It does help me get off to sleep but doesn't help with staying asleep much. It does help with pain (like I said, I use it when nothing else works). And probably because I don't use it regularly it does have a vague 'feel good' effect. Not strong, but vague. Its not like when you have taken something illegal.

    I use aura cbd oil for chronic pain and anxiety and it's amazing. Can't believe I didn't know about it sooner tbh. Totally changed my life
