Re: CBD oil / Snake oil ?

I've played with it off and on since I first posted..

I'm pretty hyperactive so I tried taking some during the day, a few drops of the 20% stuff a couple of times. I think it made me tired, heavy eyes, but certainly didn't bring any better focus. I stopped that.

I also tried at night. Normally I sleep after about 3 seconds and sleep all night until I wake naturally around 5am, I don't use an alarm.. So I was more interested in the sleep according to data from my Apple Watch / Whoop.. That was pretty interesting, my heart rate dropped a fair bit and I apparently had more deep and restful sleep.

I didn't consciously notice any difference though or feel better in the morning.

Re: CBD oil / Snake oil ?

Two decades ago did I work for a year in disabled people care (instead of army service). Many of them took illegal weed as a muscle relaxant. Pretty sure the stuff also contained thc, but the patients were mostly looking for the cbd. I don’t know if the legal stuff is worth it, but cannabis clearly worked for a lot of people with chronic muscle pain, for example MS patients. Those were not looking to get high at all... they were just looking for alternatives to the pills they’d normally get and which had a lot of side effects.

38.- honestly is not much if it works. Chronic inflammation pain is so debilitating- so I'd give it a go... oh and report back, would love to know.

Re: CBD oil / Snake oil ?

For inflammation... Make sure your vitamin D levels are proper, all year-round, because a lack of vitamin D causes your body to produce pro-inflammatory cytokines.

How vitamin D inhibits inflammation

https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0223103920.htm

I use to get muscle aches all the time and then once I was put on high-dose vitamin D to bring my levels up to normal, all those aches and pains went away.

Also, magnesium is awesome for muscle aches as well as anxiety (it's also necessary for our bodies to properly metabolize vitamin D). It works on the body like a mild muscle relaxer.

I've tried CBD oil and CBD weed before but didn't notice anything. I know some people swear by it, though.

Serrapeptase is also used for inflammation.

Re: CBD oil / Snake oil ?

CBD in general can work for some people and not work on others , it depends on what you are treating and also it depends on the dose and the products that you are using, some cbd companies sell snake oil( actual cbd content far lower than what is labeled, or isolate cbd which is not efficient and cheaper to.produce) what you need is a full spectrum cbd oil( meaning nothing get refined or stripped from the plant , it also carry on the THC ( less than 1% which doesn't make you high) and other component (terpenes , minor cannabinoids and flavonoids).
Also you need to figure out the dose that you need ( few drops will not make a difference) start slow like a quarter of a dropper under the tongue because it gets absorbed faster and see how you feel, maybe adjust as you go.
I see cbd as a support to your system, it acts on your endocannabinoid system ( a sort of balance mecanism that produce his own cbd within your body), external cbd taken under the tongue can help the endocannbinoid system to balance out and helps you feel good. I found a few good blogs about the subject

I tried CBT oil a couple of times 18 months ago & spent hours on the toilet. I tried both before covid Jan 2000 & after covid February 2000. At the time COVID was still in China, however I don't think I will try again.
