Has anyone tried CBD oil for anxiety, depression or seizures? What has your experience been like?

My wife tried it for her headaches, and related to them comes anxiety. Not a single bit of help for her.

I think it truly helps some people with some things, but this "wonder oil" fad is just so over the top its humorous.

Yeah, I tried it for treating my essential tremor. I used CBD oil with the maximum amount of THC it can have without it being considered marijuana (my doctor wants me to go on medical marijuana, but it's too expensive for me in the State I live in).

So, did it work? Nope. I didn't notice any substantial reduction in my tremor (if there was any it was probably imagined). It definitely didn't help with stress either, I was working a fast-food job at the time and it did nothing. It did help me with falling asleep easier though, which was an unintentional benefit I suppose.

Cannabis (whether just hemp or full-on marijuana) affects people wildly differently though and there's very little hard research on it. I would recommend talking with your doctor first just to see if it will interact with any current medications your on first, since it can affect the serum levels of some medications. Besides that, though it literally cannot hurt you to try it, so I can't see the harm in trying it.

Overall while my experience wasn't negative, I didn't get the intended effect I was looking for.

I took it for anxiety.

For me it was an easing relaxant, it put my tranquillity on the upward, personally.

It probably has varied effects depending on complex physiological factors and stuff.

I haven't tried it but I've heard stories about that it's stopped seizures/epilipsy for some people, or relieves the symptoms.

I believe marajuana is banned because its actually a natural plant with healing properties and the big pharma doesn't like that!
(It's still banned where I live.)

But for people with anxiety I don't know.

Well I do know that (when inhaled/smoked) cannibis can affect different people differently. (I assume its the same for oil because, well, its still cannibis, just in oil form.)
And I heard its more negative for women. I've known some people who said they became depressed, others who were just high.
(No I don't hang around "druggies". Almost everyone has tried weed once.)

Just a quick question. In your state, does medical marijuana have high doses of THC in it? Can you get high off it?

In my state medical marijuana is fully legal for a small selection of conditions, including essential tremor. Doctors are not allowed to prescribe it, they can only recommend it, so yes, you can get stuff that will make you high. The stuff I used is just the CBD oil that's now legal on the federal level, chances are the reason it didn't work is because there was so little THC.

Yes. I hear local people around here saying CBD is more of a fad and doesn't do much medically. I don't have a clue myself. I will never use it. But I think CBD should be completely legal and available on the open market and our NHS should put it on prescription if there's proof it works for whatever cases it helps for.

CBD oil is really effective for treating anxiety and depression. But also, it's necessary to apply to a specialist because it's impossible to solve this problem on your own.
