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.  ðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œ

  1. Great to know about journey with CBD. My Journey is lit bit same as of yours. I'm also using CBD Tinctures from last four months as I was suffering from Sleep Disorder and I had tried a lot of medicines for sleep which cause me many side-effects. Then one of my friends mother advice me about CBD Tinctures which start resulting in 2 days and I'm impressed with this product and now I can sleep well and work well. Thanks.

    1. Hi David, I am so glad that it is working for you! Sleep medicine is scary stuff. It took about a month and a half for me to really notice that cbd was working, but I was also getting off a really high dose of seizure medication and had currently been to the ER, so I feel like there was a lot of healing that needed to happen first. Let me know if I can help you in any way or if you just want to chat.

  5. Hi, Teresa!
    I'm so glad we connected! I'm the president of Epilepsy Association of Utah. I have an adult disabled daughter who uses cannabis oil to help control her seizures. We dont have total control, but with a doctor's letter we've become legal patients in Utah...and we've increased the amount of THC in our daughter's medicine, with great results!

    Don't get me wrong, CBD alone works very well for some patients. On just CBD, my daughter went from 12-24 seizures a day to 3-5 (8-10 on a bad day).
    But every patient is different; some people have amazing results from a single medication, while others still seize after trying many different medications. Some have success with a slightly higher level of THC, like my daughter. She still isnt taking enough to get high, but microdosing THC with her CBD has reduced her seizures from 3-5 daily down to 1 or 2.

    CBD is very popular, and more available than ever before! EAU does not recommend any certain CBD brand, we just want buyers to beware...there are many companies taking advantage of patients and charging enormous prices for oil with minimal amounts of CBD. As an example, one of the companies that has replied to this post is charging almost $3 per milligram of CBD!
    NO PATIENT SHOULD EVER BE PAYING MORE THAN 20 CENTS PER MILLIGRAM OF CBD.
    If anyone has further questions, feel free to reach out to me on Facebook, or Epilepsy Association of Utah's Facebook page.

    1. I guess I should give some examples of dosing:
      We started with just 10mg CBD each day, 5mg with breakfast and 5mg after dinner.
      We now are giving 40-50 mg twice a day, for a total of 80mg. We also give her about 3mg THC with her evening dosage. We give it via gummie.

      How much do YOU need? Well, everyone is different. We saw success starting around 10mg, but as time went on the amount had to be increased. As an example, a web site for Epidiolex (an FDA-approved CBD product) indicates up to 30mg per kilo of body weight. (Thats 2.2 pounds.) On average, a ten-year old child weighs around 30 kilos, so that child would be getting 900mg of Epidiolex CBD each day!

      The good news is, you cannot overdose on CBD. The dosing looks almost like a bell curve, so not enough may result in some seizures...and too much could also result in seizures. You have to experiment to find that sweet spot in dosing.

  7. I was looking for this kind of blog online so that I can know about the benefits of CBD for athletes. The whole internet is bombarded with negative effects of CBD. You can buy wide range of CBD products from JUSTCBD which is known for a wide range of products.
