Ask questions. Inform your doctor what you are taking. Keep an experience journal at least initially: how much you are taking , method of delivery, frequency/ date & time of dosing, and perceived effects. Usually recommended frequency is 2x day. (Morning/night) …that said I started with 1x/day in morning for a week then moved to 2x/day. This not a prescription for you!!! It was my process.
I’m 87. Have lived with Trigeminal Neuralgia for 17 years. At first Tegretol helped a little but disease worsened and Tegretol damages liver. Went to legal Dronabinol(THC) with doc’s prescription. Insurance paid. CVS provided 2.5mg pill. THC Stopped pain, and no side effects. Also have tried CBD oil with 1200mgs per ounce. 2 drops sublingual. Not a good taste but I am without pain using CBD at 1200mgs per ounce. It also means I now have only a negligible amt of THC in my body.
Research on CBD and anxiety has generally looked at cannabis as a whole product, not as CBD as a standalone compound. Some studies suggest that it can help with anxiety: like this 2011 study that suggests CBDcan reduce social anxiety or this 2015 review that says CBD could be promising for many forms of anxiety. It’s also important to consider whether the CBD comes from the cannabis plant and therefore may include THC, a cannabinoid that for some, induces anxiety.

These are the best CBD oil extracts, hemp edibles, balms and e-liquids that are available to buy in the UK, clearly listed by total CBD content (see red circles above each product). We feature only products we've tried ourselves and know are top of the range, both in terms of purity and strength. You can be assured that you are receiving a CBD oil from ethical UK or European suppliers who use organic crops and supercritical CO2 extraction. CO2 extraction ensures you receive a full-spectrum product and benefit from the entourage effect. All of these products are legal (less than 0.2% THC content) and fully certified.
Unfortunately due to the disappointing and down right inaccurate position of the federal government in classifying Cannabis as a schedule one drug, most research institutions risk federal funding if they conduct real research on Cannabis. This has dramatically limited the potential for real research by real scientists to be conducted. That research is critical to better understanding the multitude of therapeutic effects of the various chemical constituents found in Cannabis.
To make matters more confusing, nine states (including California, Washington, and Colorado) let residents buy cannabis-based products with or without THC. Nearly two dozen other “medical marijuana states” allow the sale of cannabis, including capsules, tinctures, and other items containing CBD or THC, at licensed dispensaries to people whose doctors have certified that they have an approved condition (the list varies by state but includes chronic pain, PTSD, cancer, autism, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis). Sixteen more states legalized CBD for certain diseases.
This is extremely important news for me. As an extreme migraine sufferer with an average of 15 days a month or more, since using CBD I haven’t had any headaches at all. The 4 days I did have them last week was because I didn’t have or take any CBD oil for the last 2 weeks. So while taking it I have been headache free. I’ve been suffering headaches for 29 years and have had every test known to mankind, every migraine and cluster headache drug etc. My last treatments were 30 Botox injections every 3 months for the last year. Where it cut them down in intensity and frequency, Hemp Worx 500 CBD virtually stopped them dead in their tracks. I can’t recommend it enough. CBD did what Mass Gen. Hospital and 3 other hospitals couldn’t do. The stuff worx!
So, what is the best way to use CBD oil? CBD comes in a variety of forms, such as oil, tincture, oil for vaping, sublingual spray, edibles, and topical creams, so you can choose the method that is most suitable for your use. The main idea behind all the methods of using CBD is to make sure that this cannabinoid ends up in your system in an easy manner, producing the results you want. But when it comes to choosing the right method, it depends very much on the optimal dose in your case, the results you wish to achieve, and how long you want its effects to last. So, there isn’t a general rule when it comes to using CBD products.
