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

I started my life in one of the biggest, little small towns around…Milwaukee…Remember Laverne and Shirley?
That's where I grew up.
Then a stint in new jersey, near new York city, and back to Chicago……so moving to a county seat with 662 folks total kind of blew my mind…..and then some one invited me to a music jam….
Thru my singing, I received a key to society, Ozark Style. My husband earned his key by starting the food bank and worked in it or at it 5 days a week until the day before he died.
Yes, the Ozarks have been so good for us. Water, hill country…..I had been coming down here to float rivers for 8 years with extended family before we moved here out "02.
I had been feeling regretful that my posts diverted the purpose of this thread, but its posted in depression. So maybe it is right to be here, cuz look how great we all feel about the music jam. Thank you all for being so excited about me reclaiming part of my life that lead to my depression in O9.
I guess its true, you can't keep an old girl down…..
Bright Wings, flying today!

Hi – many of you have talked about your depression and anxiety over time and CBD oil or other remedies you've tried in this discussion, so wanted to check in to see how you all are doing. I think your responses will be helpful to many members here.

@wigreenthumb – how is your anxiety these last couple days?

@tdib – how are your anxiety and depression? Are you feeling as though they are under control, or not so much?

@granny55 – is your anxiety level changing as you have started on your new medication?

In general, anxiety is reduced. However, I still have occasional episodes of high anxiety, after about 6 days of CBD oil use. I am left wondering if maximum benefits occur with continued use, with buildup of chemical changes in the body similar to use of SSRI drugs. Anyone out there know about that?

REPLY

Good morning @wigreenthumb– Yes, it's necessary to take cbd oil at the same time everyday. Please google antidepressants and cbd oil. I take Zoloft and wellbutrin and it is not interfering.

I can only speak for myself here. I've been using the CBD since last summer or earlier.
When I find I have extra anxiety, I take an extra dose thru the day. It works for me…….Bright Wings…

@granny55 – word of mouth, comments on-line. If there's a comassiy center near you that would be a good place.
