Sep 18, 2018 · CBD oil and depression/anxiety in Depression & Anxiety

The distinction should be made that there are two kinds of CBD. One from the hemp plant which is federally available and one from the marijuana plant which is not, although should be! The CBD I take too is from the marijuana and definitely works for anxiety without a high. It’s such a shame that it is not widely available as it is far superior to the garbage the pharmaceutical companies are peddling. I was very skeptical of getting my medical marijuana card to purchase this but I’m so glad I did it. The CBD from the hemp plant Does not have the same medicinal properties so don’t get discouraged if you tried to pick it up and it didn’t work for you as I bet that is the reason-not comparing apples to apples.

Yes. I have been on antidepressants for almost 20 years and have had a terrible time with discontinuation symptoms each time I try to stop taking them. Every antidepressant I have taken has given me at least one undesirable side effect so I decided to get my medical marijuana card and try that route. I bought a CBD capsule from Knox Medical called Perla and I cannot believe how well it has been working. I completely stopped Well Turin and am on my 5th day of not taking Cymbalta. I am having brain zaps and dizziness but no anxiety or depression. It’s truly like a miracle. The difference between the CBD I take and what’s in the general market is that it is from the marijuana plant and not the hemp plant. It does not give a high effect. I just noticed that the elephant that weighed on my chest for so many years had gone away about 2 weeks in to taking it. The more I have read about Cymbalta the more furious I have become that my phychiatrist didn’t warm me of all of the side effects and discontinuation effects. I had been on Effexor several years ago and never wanted to go on a drug like that again. I was skeptical of the CBD but was desperate to try something that wasn’t Xanax or addictive to calm my anxiety. Hope my experience helps someone reading and hope I can make it through these awful brain zaps over the next few days. I will never take another antidepressant again!
