I was diagnosed with Adult-Onset Epilepsy at the age of 26. During the last 6 years, I have tried ten different prescription seizure medications. I feel like the next one is going to kill me. I'm desperate, and I'm scared, but this is my journey with CBD.
Week 2 with CBD
It has been almost 2 weeks since I started taking CBD oil. My bottle of tincture is 1250mg in a 30ml bottle, so I have been taking 1ml a day which equals roughly 42mg of CBD each day. About 5 days ago I had a Partial Complex Seizure, which is now called a Focal Onset Impaired Awareness Seizure. I feel as though the more researchers learn about the brain, the longer the term for a type of seizure becomes. I hope that means that they are being able to narrow it down.....
Anyway, I thought that maybe I had a seizure because it was almost 11 AM and I hadn't eaten yet (I'm trying to narrow down my triggers). But low and behold, I had another partial complex seizure the next day and I HAD eaten! Since I ended up having 2 seizures in 2 days I decided to go get a CBD vape pen and start taking 1.5ml of oil which is about 63mg of CBD. So, I am taking 1ml in the morning and .5ml in the afternoon.
I got my vape pen at my local vape shop for $45, it is 250 mg in a very small cartridge. So far I have smoked a third of it in less than a week. I do think it's helping though, even if just a little bit. I smoke a few puffs and wait about 10 minutes, if I still feel anxious I'll do that again, and so on, and so on. Maybe that's why I'm running out so fast! Mine taste minty-delicious.
As far as the CBD Isolate, I don't feel as tho it is helping my anxiety BUT it is amazing for headaches. I take a little scoop with my finger and it works within about 10 minutes and last about 3-4 hours. I've only taken 2 little scoops once, otherwise 1 was enough! So I am really impressed and highly recommend it.
Happy Birthday during all this!
Alright, so I have been doing a lot of homework on different CBD companies. Calculating how many mg's are in 1ml (pay attention to this!), if they are tested by a third party, how it's grown, how the companies extract the CBD and the $$ DUH. Since I am still unable to work and I'm sure the case is the same with many others I feel like that's a pretty reasonable (obvious) thing to consider. I have found several different companies that I am the most interested in, but have a lot more to look at. If you're curious about my findings so far just leave a comment or message me. 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
