Right, I’m unsure about how it would work since it doesn’t have THC in it. I know THC would work, scientifically shown. The paranoia part makes sense though.

It’s almost like someone was like hey look now you can have weed...without the weed!

i might take some for this group i'm going to, but it's expensive if you use it a lot, so have to leave for strict emergencys like the way i feel today, my experience is most drugs lose effect if taken regularly

I started using cod oil and it really helped me with my asthma and anxiety, i hardly take any of my asthma meds now and I feel pretty calm, I use a 5%(Per drop) oil.

Can I ask how you take it?

I keep reading about the benefits of CBD oil but I don't know what you're supposed to do with it?
:confused:

Yes I think oil are the most effective as they have higher concentration than other products (with capsules actually).

I also started drinking hemp infused drinks as I recently heard about CBD Living and Oki, 2 different CBD drink brands that I like but I don't feel the effects as much as with the CBD oil tincture, not sold on the brand though so if you have any reco for good oil provider? I feel Charlotte Web is the most popular but would like to explore cheaper options with the same quality... Thank you!

You take CBD oil orally under the tongue, usually 2-3 drops twice per day. Percentage is the CBD strength of the oil. If you never used CBD oil start with lower strength and build up until you see which one is working in your case. It takes some time and also money, be patient.
Bless you for that Apolo - I kept reading about people vaping it and I wasn't keen on that idea. x

I’ve been reading and watching reviews about CBD oil. Most videos and articles has tons of reviews and comments. Each review and comment, almost, has a link for a company. It looks like an advertisement campaign to promote this stuff. On the other had, whoever posts anything against CBD oil or simply stating their own opinion and experience of it not working get attacked or ridiculed or told “ oh, you are not taking this brand or that”.

One guy even posted a video of himself using it for the first time and he was depressed because he lost a child. After an hour he was joking and up and ready to go out and get to business. I was like you gotta be kidding me.

Has anyone tried CBD oil? How did you find to be? Is it really working???
I tried CBD oil but honestly, it didn’t do much for me. The cost was around $60.00 per month.

I take hemp oil, it's really helping a lot for anxiety, sleep, focus. Just make sure you are getting a natural, full spectrum hemp oil with no additives. It is very important to get a good quality hemp oil if you want the effect.

Sounds really expensive. Why not just grow a plant?
