Dec 3, 2018 · CBD oil and depression/anxiety in Depression & Anxiety

Hi Merry, this is so great to hear…life can be so wonderful even though (like in my case 2 weeks ago) it can throw hell at you again…I am so careful not to push the CBD thing too far for other people because under no circumstances do I want to be misunderstood as making a suggestion and something goes wrong (I know how dangerous it is to take treatment recommendations from people with different experiences)…but I am telling you that for me this thing is close to a miracle cure (as in my reply to Ginger a minute ago – awesome)

Hi Ginger, yes, it absolutely works for me…the strangest thing for me though is not only the emotional stability it provides but more so the clarity of thought (or maybe that is just because of the emotional stability – who knows) but the overwhelming sense of loss and free fall into another depressive episode were of course accompanied by devastating thoughts, thoughts that life is over, no future, all that was built is lost again after finally getting well, where is the next bridge and so on…within hours those got replaced by totally constructive thoughts: yes, this suck but you can deal with it, so what went wrong and where is your responsibility, there is nothing you can do to force a change in the situation but you can improve, you will be alright in the future, let's start by doing this right now…its just weird how that happened (perhaps my ADHD that I started to question I even have at the end?)…listen, I still get very sad and cry at times but at no point do I have the feeling that I am losing the ground under my feet…just the opposite, I deliberately let the emotion happen and can the just carefully return to normal…its not that I am ignoring the event or that I let it destroy me, I am actually fully participating in it and doing so in a controlled and calm manner…

Hi Merry, actually it was a tincture (I could give you the brand name but not sure if appropriate) that comes in a 15ml bottle with 50mg/ml and costs $40 for the isolated one with flavor and $35 for full spectrum unflavored – they also have larger bottles (and yes, this is Mr. NoWeedEVER becoming an expert!)
Regarding the meds, this was in a different country (Europe) so I am not sure if the names work here. Over a period of 10 years I have had about every kind of different meds for depression, social anxiety, one time for bipolar and all the time for ADHD, all depending on doctor but at the end (end of 2016) I was on maintenance with 200mg Wellbutrin and Ritalin LA (ext.release) 30mg…we weaned the Wellbutrin off and I just kicked the Ritalin…both was not easy but I must admit that at that time I was relatively OK because my life circumstances had became so much easier over time and I was kind of "naturally" better if that makes sense…

On the topic of CBD, I quickly want to share my current experience. BUT PLEASE, nobody gets the idea to replace their meds with CBD based on my report!! So, I am off high dose antidepressants for 1.5 years and have been coping well with life. Now, 2 weeks ago I had to deal with a major life event that sent me straight back into a full blown depressive episode. What to do? Go back to the hated meds for just this event? No thank you. Then my daughter of all people suggested her CBD oil to me. It took me a minute to get over the fact that she has anything related to weed oh her but she convinced me to quickly read up on it. And then I tried it and nothing happened…until it all the sudden hit me a while later, that I was on the phone with a friend and talking like a normal person…what happened?…very subtle but without noticing it, I regained total control of emotions and thought…strange, like wellbutrin laced with ritalin…that was unreal for something I can buy in store around the corner…I took 1ml of 50mg/ml (so duh, I took 50mg of CBD) – it worked wonders. I start the day with 50mg and then add 20mg in the afternoon and a small dose before sleeping (! this is a lot but I am a big man)…honestly, for me the results were amazing…I am continuing to use it and will lower the mg once the significant event fades a little bit into the past…you all stay well!
