Hey!

 

First time posting here, but when I first starting having DPD I referred to this website a lot, and I just wanted to give back.

 

As some background info about me, I started having DPD after I tried LSD around 2 years ago. It was terrifying and really disrupted my life, but I tried a lot of things to help me feel normal again. Including going to the gym, seeing a hypnotherapist, eating healthier, cutting out caffeine, and some more things. I finally got rid of it after about 8 months I'd say, then it just came back every few days(that was fantastic for me). 

 

Now, 2 years later, I get it every week or so, but it doesn't distress me as it used to. DPD can be beaten, and as long as you don't give up, you will feel what it's like to be normal again. I have been fighting since day one, and it's gotten to the point where I can even smoke weed and only get minor DPD.

 

However what I really wanted to say in this post is that 2 years later, I found out that CBD has helped my DPD tremendously. Every time I feel DPD coming on, I take 4-5 drops of 300mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil (Ma Oil brand, 71% CBD, 0.26% THC) and it gets rid of it completely within 2-3 minutes. It really is a fantastic compound.

I was about to make a new topic today regarding my CBD oil purchase, then I saw this. I ordered a full-spectrum hemp seed oil tincture (3000mg CBD content) currently waiting for it to arrive to help with mostly anxiety and dp/dr, and saw other helpful benefits to ailments I am currently dealing with. As far as natural supplements/medicines, it is the last resort before I decide if I want to continue seeking pharmaceuticals, or at least use in addition to the medications I'm already taking since I've tried so many natural supplements and they have not helped. Your post is boosting my confidence in taking this since I am afraid of the small amounts of THC triggering negative effects that are associated with smoking marijuana, even if it is trace amounts because I heard THC causes paranoia and anxiety but I also heard small amounts can have the opposite effect. 

 

Problems I'm currently dealing with:

 

Anxiety/stress/panic disorders

 

DP/DR (obviously)

 

A form of depression

 

Visual snow
 

Muscle fasciculations/spasms

 

Fatigue

 

Sleep issues

 

General malaise

 

Various stomach issues

 

High blood pressure

 

Random prickling and numbness/sensational/temperature issues all over body

 

Just always feeling like there's a weight or pressure, like something is holding me back

 

The list goes on...

I wish wish wish this stuff was more widely available to make it cheaper. It is too expensive at the moment. 500mg costs £50 and most studies use 500mg a DAY! As THC caused me to have symptoms of DP (although I didn't realise it at the time) I imagine CBD would help as it acts in an almost opposite way to THC. I have tried it with SOME good effect (probably not a high enough dose), need to get back on it really. I had a few drops a day as well as hemp tea with hemp flowers (once were available on amazon but not any more). Also want to try a CBD vape but money is very tight at the moment. 

 

For those interested, I have read multiple accounts of weed induced chronic DPD being cured by clomipramine. It is one of the few meds I haven't tried and should start monday. I feel as though there needs to be a pinned post that has initials at the beginning of each headline ie weed induced WI, chronic DPD for over a year +1Y, and other such things... I don't want to waste my time with someone who said they had it for 1 week and it was absolute hell and they were cured by eating yellow M&M's. I find it the opposite of helpful

Yes, so far it's been making me feel crappy, weak and tired after taking it, time feels like it goes by slower, and the whole day just feels weird and off, doesn't even hold a candle to klonopin, especially with mental confidence and anticipatory anxiety. It hasn't helped my depersonalization one bit but I'd say it's more physically relaxing than reducing mental anxiety because I still get freaked in DP/DR triggering environments. I'm still going to take it to see if it helps over time but I'm starting to think about trying standardized kava tinctures as a last resort for natural anxiety medicine. I'm just scared about my liver because I have high bilirubin levels (likely from Gilbert's syndrome), and there's some horror stories with kava and liver toxicity.

I got my oil from Lazarus Naturals, they have a 40% off assistance program but I see you are using pounds, and it'll probably end up being the same price or more to ship out to your country.

I've been experiencing noticeable relief from CBD oil.  I've found Charlotte's Web (tincture) and Plus CBD (softgels) to be good brands that work well for me.

Hey guys I just saw an article was posted about this, I suggest you read it! CBD on DPDR

 

Update on my condition:

 

After taking it every day for a long time now, I can still say that CBD halts my anxiety. But at night I get DPD all the time, but it's a pleasant DPD feeling(maybe it's because I started smoking weed a lot more), but nonetheless, the DPD didn't negatively affect my mood or anything. I have a feeling the CBD blocked out the anxiety but I had DPD still from the weed. But since no anxiety was there, DPD didn't scare me at all! I always stay stocked up on Ma Oil 300mg Stawberry, and I always have it with me during the day and when I smoke! I highly suggest at least trying CBD for your DPD!

You don't need to worry about this. A low amount of THC reduces anxiety like a boss...it's when you get a lot of it that you get fucked up. Feeling tired and such may be beause the CBD is putting your body off constant alert-mode. If I were you I'd keep taking it, and sleeping or relaxing whenever I feel tired.

I've been smoking a bit of hash lately, and I just noticed I'm much ballsier than I used to be. Today; I did something that I would normally never do: I went out driving with a friend...HE DROVE. *nodnod* I think this shit really helps with anxiety, but I'm smoking so little I wouldn't even think it did much tbh. Keep at it, ya'll. Together you can defeat this.

Doesn't THC cause the heart to race?

I get a little faster heartbeat for a few mins. In one way you could say THC is like nicotine...heartrate goes up, blood pressure goes up (temporarily).

How long does it last, just a few?
