Today is Bob Marley’s 73rd birthday and I know it’s cliche but it’s a perfect day to share and educate my journey these past few weeks with CBD. For those of you who don’t know CBD is Cannabidiol is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. CBD is all natural, found in plants and is one of the best medicines. CBD interacts with our naturally occurring systems, but is non-psychotropic, it doesn’t cause a high. This is completely legal in all 50 states and you can find it at your local smoke shop. Some times we need to be our own advocate, we have to educate not only ourselves but also educate the public. There are still alot of misconceptions of hemp, marijuana, and CBD.
I did a some research on my own, then I went to my doctor with my note-book and pen. I asked him a bunch of questions and what was best for me. I don’t usually share about my personal life but I do have epilepsy, so my doctor helped guide me in the right direction. Lucky for me I got my medical card! There is so much information available online, I suggest before buying anything you read a little on what is best for you. Also remember each person reacts differently. After lots of reading and lot’s of notes I finally got the courage and decided what I wanted.
Remember all of this contains no THC! I wanted to have a variety of different dosages and different ways to intake it. Some were great, some not so great. The same notebook I was keeping notes in I am documenting my journey with CBD. The gummies were not so great they are low dosages that are good, but taste not so great and are really chewy. The Just CBD tincture that goes under your tongue is not the best tasting but has high dosing I think is perfect for before bed. It doesn’t taste bad, just an herby taste. I like to use 4-6 drops on those nights when I can’t sleep. I haven’t been doing much vape-ing lately but I was interested in the cartridge and a pen. The tincture can also be used in my vape pen, although I haven’t tried it yet. The silver pen has been my favorite so far, and it tastes the best. Strawberry flavored and 5ml CBD oil, can’t beat that. The cartridge was also strawberry, I it used quickly. I use the vape pens through out the day. They help me relax in general. If I’m feeling anxious I can grab a pen, or if I’m having a bad migraine grab a tincture and maybe and hour or so later I can start to feel better. I have noticed the most feeling is with the tincture. I started my journey in November and since then my skin has cleared up, my headaches have gotten better, my anxiety has decreased, and I am sleeping through the night. I have also been taking vitamins and drinking more water. I am adjusting here and there but I am keeping a close diary of my journey and hope to keep staying on track through out 2018!
