    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've started it yesterday afternoon but I haven't felt any better as of yet but it probably is too early. I'm trying to see if it'll help with my Anxiety & Depression as it's been a tough year of events. But I've also got Carpel Tunnel Syndrome in my hands to which I've seen three doctors about and they don't want to entertain it

    You will need to give it a couple of weeks to be sure of any effect, especially for mental issues. Also worth bearing in mind those usually respond best to low doses, but pain usually responds to higher doses. So you would probably want to build up slowly to find the sweet spot between the two

    Yep, that's the plan! It tastes awful anyway so it definitely is low doses for now

    I did feel very relaxed and sleepy not long after taking it yesterday, but I'm not sure if that was a placebo effect mixed with the fact it was mid-afternoon and I'd worked a night shift the night before Shame my nights sleep wasn't the greatest

    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.

    With regards to work, it's a gamble. Some employers are more understanding than others.

    It is possible to challenge a positive random work/drug test - for a start many of them are inaccurate and questionable. I would suggest googling 'what are my rights if I am asked to do, or fail a drugs at work?' and other variations there of.

    Saying that, I passed a random test despite having smoked cannabis in the days preceding the test.

    To be honest he didn't give it long enough to give it a fair trial but short term it didn't work.

    The taste put him off.
