Yeh I tried it, it was relaxing and helped me sleep. I am not sure it will cure this, perhaps at higher doses it would be beneficial. I am getting it again though and will consistently take it this time, it supposedly has reverse tolerance so you need less over time. So with the gummies I think I can take 2 a night and spend £20 a month which would be ok... with time the price will come down, but give it a go, hemp tea isnt too bad either and has some cbd in. The tinctures are a bit nasty really, taste isnt great

Yeah, I take it almost everyday and it really helps me get through the day. I don't necessarily need it to deal with anxiety, but it almost like lets my mind loosen up so I can actually take in my affirmations and feel positive and confident to get through the rest of the day. Although for me I had to take it for a while to actually get the effects of it. I would recommend trying it if you have the money because it is kinda expensive. It's basically a xanax without the withdrawal or abuse symptoms lol

I will update my experience here, I have been taking 30mg of gummies a day (I'm in the uk and use the brand 'yumi' that has been the best and cheapest I have tried). That isn't to say its cheap atm. Its cost my about £36 for 3 weeks worth at 30mg a day, but with time prices will come down, ESPECIALLY when they start to synthesise it in the lab which they have already figured out they can do. So hopefully within the next year prices will fall as you won't need all the licenses etc to grow it.

For me I sleep better, feel more relaxed, and I socialised today the best I have in as long as I can remember. So good things, has been about a week atm, so good signs. I drink hemp tea, loose leaf in a tea strainer then a bag of chamomile in there and honey with it. Can't taste the hemp and it gets that little bit extra of cbd throughout the day. Then a bit of oil at the end of the day. I imagine with all that I am getting around 50mg a day... I am guna stick to this over time, I think eating is the best way to go.

Vaping or smoking which I have tried didnt have the same impact. Perhaps because we are obsessed with getting it to the brain, but throughout the gut it must stimulate the nervous system anyway and I think that is felt throughout the body anyway. It is definitely worth the shot, I have tried it before recently as I was convinced it helped me last time, but I did smoke on the 2nd attempt. This 3rd time is better and I mainly take gummies, oil and tea

I'm not guna give advice on whether you should or shouldnt take it with an SSRI. I personally did at one point, with imipramine I think with no side effects. I would say talk to your dr but they dont know anything whatsoever about this...

I would also say that for me the better effects are coming with time, it has been a week now. I'm sleeping better and feel more relaxed and alert generally. But I don't know the longer term effects of taking CBD and an SSRI together. You can look on wikipedia for the effects of CBD, I think it binds to the 5ht2a receptor but check that, then check what your antidepressant does... Ultimately its up to you if you take these together

What about taking CBD with an SSRI? Not regularly but just every now and then to relax?
You should be fine, I used it to get off my medication with no side effects or withdrawal symptoms but ask your dr if you want. I had asked mine and he didn't even know what cbd was

Glad it's working for you. The vitamin stores in the US are finally selling cbd. They finally have the first cbd brand I used that was slightly effective. I'll try it again but at a higher dose. If that does help, then I'll try lions mane.
