CBD oil and depression/anxiety

Posted by lalyfa @lalyfa, Feb 24, 2018

I am curious to know if anyone has had success with CBD or Hemp oil helping with depression/anxiety? I’ve been reading a lot about it and am curious.
I’ve been reading about this and am very interested but would like thoughts/opinions from anyone who has actually tried it or knows someone who has. TIA

Thank you,
Laura

Hi, I also take 20 mg Celexa daily, I’ve been in this for twenty years, it took about six weeks to really go into effect. It has done wonders for me, although I would really like to put no pharmaceutical drugs in my system since having severe withdrawal coming off Lyrica. As for CBD oil you can take this with any medications, it’s all good. My dogs told me to take as much as I needed.

Be careful with CBD oil, if you are on certain meds, there can be interactions. Always consult your MD. As for dosage, there are no laws or standards for production of CBD oil, so purity and potency will vary among, and even within different manufacturers. Always consult the manufacturers recommendations for dosages!

Remember, cbd as medication has only been widely available a short time, comes from a different source than conventional pharmacological meds, and most doctors have no idea of what it can do or can't do and how it interacts with other meds. I'd say we are in experimental territory.
