    ANY THOUGHTS OR INPUT WOULD BE WELL APPRECIATED. Please post your thoughts!

    Just ordered my first CBD bottle of oil, 30 ml 500 mg, and here is what they state for this well known brand. Want to give this a shot first since the effects should take place faster then the vaping CBD. Will try the vaping CBD next if this is good for me.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
    • DO NOT VAPE! See Suggested Use below
    • 30mL of Naturals full-spectrum CBD blend infused
    • 0% THC
    • Available in three strength levels: 250 mg, 500 mg, and 1000 mg
    • 100% natural—no artificial flavorings, only the bare essentials
    • Active cannabinoids: CBD, CBDV, and CBG to provide the maximum amount of support
    • Dropper bottle for easy use sublingual delivery (drop under the tongue)
    • Designed to be used orally (sublingual) or added to food & drinks
    INGREDIENTS: full-spectrum CBD oil, coconut oil, and natural spearmint flavor extract.

    SUGGESTED USE: Take one full dropper (approximately 30 drops or 1mL) 1–3 times per day, or as needed. Drop and hold underneath the tongue for 15–20 seconds before swallowing. Wait three hours after initial (first time) use to see how the strength level of CBD may affect you.

    And this brand is independently lab tested with the results on there website

    Independent lab tests show on this particular band that it contains NO THC, but other brands I have seen say 0.2% THC
    I also get drug tested so that is why I picked this brand.

    Now this is a complete different topic the lotion the first time i tried it i wanted to scream at the world and say how amazing it was. Ita completely for pain. If you have pain on your arm knee back you just rub a little on and it helps. I was so skeptical and i have teied everything. But that stuff works

    FWIW, I've used CBD both as edibles and vaping. I prefer vaping, mostly because I don't have to think about taking it (I'm bad about taking my meds in general). Of course, I use it to help deal with diabetes, so I desire a more consistent "dosing".

    I've seen that they make different blends for different problems; pain relief, anxiety, insomnia.... Normally I vape the dry stuff, you know, the real thing, but when I had the flu I couldn't vape anything, could barely breathe at all, but I really needed something to help me sleep. Any idea how I can find some specifically for insomnia? I don't care about testing or even if it might contain some THC, I'm a housewife, but I really do need something for insomnia; been fighting it my whole life, and sometimes it's just out of control.

    I'm no expert, but I don't think that there are actual blends for particular maladies per se. Pure CBD is generally advertised to help with a wide range of conditions. OTOH, if you're looking to help with insomnia, I'd recommend vaping less nicotine in the evening given that it is a stimulant. Same goes for caffeine (pop/soda, coffee, etc).

    I use very little of either; 2 cups of caffeine tea in the morning/afternoon, then decaf after that... 4mg vape, about 5ml daily, so max 20mg all day. I stopped wrestling with different nic levels within my first 4-6 months, when I mostly vaped 10mg, but 8mg at night. It's not really a matter of substances, because I take quite a few of those to HELP me sleep, with wildly varying success -- up to 40mg of melatonin every night, about 200mg Dramamine (because it has a sleepier effect on me than benadryl/sominex), warm-milk cocoa every night, and of course the dry leaf I vape. It's just my stupid brain sometimes can't find the off switch. It's infuriating... which is also not conducive to sleep.

    Yeah, I know the feeling. I'm on the obsessive/compulsive side, so my brain doesn't much care for trivialities like sleep either. I know it's not for you, but alcohol certainly shuts that part of my mind down.

    Yeah, that worked great, until it didn't. :D In fact, I just passed 26 yrs sober last week. :) :) :)

    One thing that still works fairly well, is if I didn't sleep much or well the night before, usually I don't have any trouble -- which ought to be the case tonight, and also since we went and bought a new dishwasher tonight to replace the 31 yr old one that's sinking fast -- I was so traumatized last night by it not wanting to start, that even when it finally did start, and run normally, it was hard to settle down. Oh, and the drunken ass across the street was breaking beer bottles in the street -- he was fighting in the street earlier tonight, so popo very kindly came and escorted him to the steel-bar motel. :) So it should be a peaceful evening on my street tonight. :D

    I have an issue with their marketing here -
    • DO NOT VAPE! See Suggested Use below
    • 30mL of Naturals full-spectrum CBD blend infused
    • 0% THC (IT CANNOT BE FULL SPECTRUM WITH ZERO THC!)
    Being ZERO THC - this means it's an isolate product. It could be a "broad spectrum" where they've added other cannabinoids back IN to the final product, but this tells me they don't know what they're doing.

    That being said - sublingual is a great way to get the benefits of CBD when one doesn't want to vape. I personally do both. I wouldn't want to vape MCT oil however -

    So what brand do you use, and does it contain any THC? Thank you in advanced for your reply.

    I vape Cannapresso CBD, taste is not bad, they claim 0% THC on the website and use CBD isolate (I have checked the test report by third party lab), how do you think of it?

    My local vape shop started carrying the Savage CBD line; it's a heck of a lot cheaper than most of the other CBD products they carry at 1000mg / 30mL for $60, vs well over $100 for other brands at comparable strengths. I picked up a bottle of the Driven, i.e. blueberry, so we'll see how that works out.

    They absolutely do make it for different issues. It's different strengths for different needs. They have it for pain, staying awake and to help with sleep. Only problem, is that you have to get it from dispensaries, and have a medical card in order to get it. It's not something you can just buy online.

    I kind of figured different strengths was clear, though I'm not sure it's a one size-fits-all solution for any given malady from person to person.

    Yeah, I'm sure it depends on the person. That's the reason for the medical card. The doc's predict what's needed.

    Yeah, right. I guess I'll stick with vaping the real green stuff because my doc is firmly locked in the 19th century. Not even the 20th cent -- he doesn't take any kind of plastic at all, just cash or -- OMG -- checks. Do people actually still use checks? Personal checks???

    The only downside is that when I have the flu -- like this past Feb -- I can't vape anything at all, and certainly not something as harsh on the lungs as that stuff. :headbang: That's why I want some non-vape CBD. And there aren't dispensaries for anything like that in GA anyway. Unless you're an epileptic under the age of 5. :facepalm: Fucking morons.

    Big Pharma gains billions of dollars per year off of our ailments, so anything that will cure cancer, or anything else for that matter, is made "illegal" by the federal government, the FDA won't approve it for general or medicinal use, and the media uses fear tactics and brainwashes everybody into believing it's bad for you. It also makes it easier for the government to get away with their tyrannical ways. AND they will do it right in our faces sand won't even bat an eye. Oh, but it's for our "safety". Just like they attack vaping. Sound familiar? They don't want us healthy. "We The People" have given the government more power, under the guise of "safety", than what the Constitution grants them, which is zero power over "We The People". Now we basically have to bow down to tyranny, whether you like it or not. We are not a free country anymore because of that fact, contrary to popular belief. What the people fail to realize, is that the constitution GUARANTEES power to the states, which is the PEOPLE, and NOT the federal government. They have been overstepping their boundaries for decades, and operating illegally against "We The People". Hell, the federal government even has a patent on the cure for cancer, yet they made it illegal and call it a "drug", when in fact it's an herb. It's called C*nnabis, which you may know this already. Don't believe me, you and anyone else are more than welcome to research it. It's a crying shame actually. We have loved ones dying from cancer every single day, yet the government and big pharma won't release it, or even give us that option. They want us under their thumb getting chemo, and all the other pharmaceuticals so their pockets get fatter, while we keep suffering through their processes and medications that should never be in our bodies to begin with.

    Preaching to the choir. Though I'm not convinced about it being a "cure for cancer"... my dad smoked the green stuff for, hell, 50 yrs? He died of lung cancer in 2006. He smoked cigarettes for about 60 yrs, but if the other was a cure, then that shouldn't have mattered. Treatment for the nausea brought on by the poison of chemotherapy, absolutely; my ex-husband got it pharmaceutically at Emory when he was being treated for cancer in the 80s.

    I do however think it's a marvelous treatment for insomnia, anxiety, stress, and probably a lot of other brain-chemistry issues that BP makes TRILLIONS medicating with POISON -- that stuff they call "SSRIs", which yes, do help a great deal... but BP has no idea WHY, they're just playing pin the tail on the ailment and see what works, when it comes to the brain. And the withdrawal from SSRIs makes cigarette withdrawal look like a fun day at the beach. :facepalm:

    But it's my firm belief that we need to BURN DOWN THE FDA. Overturn, abolish, eradicate with extreme prejudice, because THEY are a deadly cancer on the American people!

    It's already been proven here, and in other countries, That c*nnabis stops the growth of cancer cells, and even reverses it. And by the way, you don't smoke it to get the benefits of it. Its CBD oil form.

    I guess that makes sense, since any type of smoke has the pyritic toxins. Though I dunno if that product even existed in 2006. His cancer was inoperable, as the tumor in his lung was growing THROUGH the aorta. Radiation just made it grow faster. With small-cell lung cancer, it's pretty much a death sentence by the time the cancer is detected -- with MOST cancers, the best way to survive it is to know about it in its precursor stage, usually some type of dysplasia.

    Someday humanity may figure out how to prevent it from ever starting... but I think we're still a good ways from that. Life on planet Earth, or any planet under a star, is hazardous to your health; solar radiation is both a life-giver, and life-taker -- same for oxygen. Nobody gets outta here alive.

    Get rid of processed foods, sodas, and everything else that qualifies as fake food. Fast food too

    Um, no thanks. I'd like to enjoy my life while I still have it. Others can live in a filtered-aired closet and drink spring water and eat kale if they wanna. Not for me.

    Then don't cry if you get cancer. Not being mean, or disrespectful, but that's what humanity has to do to get rid of it. High Fructose Corn Syrup, and processed foods are two of the main causes of cancer. The biggest is GMO's. We are bringing it on ourselves by indulging in "convenience". I don't even use granulated sugar anymore. I put organic honey in my coffee and my sweet tea. I don't drink sodas anymore because every time I do, I feel like crap. I don't do fast food anymore either. It's all fake food and will eventually cause us to meet our demise.

    I agree about HFCS, and GMOs, and most processed foods. Anytime I even think about GMOs, I can't help but remember the old Imperial margarine commercial: "It's not NICE to fool mother nature!" :giggle: But I refuse to eliminate sugar; that's why I've been steadily reducing it for the last 30+ yrs, because I like it too much to completely do without it. I do use "raw" sugar for about 50% of my sugar consumption, and the other 50% is the refined white stuff, because I LIKE IT. The only fast food I do is Taco Hell, Subway, Chik-fil-A, or very occasionally, a pizza from Dominos, or some of those excellent battered filets from Captain D's -- just the thought of McD's or Burger King nearly makes me gag. But we don't eat out very much at all, because the stuff I make at home is both better and tastier than most anything you can get "out" -- as well as a LOT cheaper.

    But I refuse to be a food nazi. Life is for enjoying; I don't drink or smoke, so I eat what I like -- because most of what I like is either good for me, or not that bad.

    AFAIK CBD is actually supposed to be an appetite suppressant.

    Subway, chic-fil-a, pizza and Cap'n D's are not fast food. Taco hell, Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King and such are all fast (fake) food. Raw sugar is actually good for you, At least better than processed sugars.

    Ok, I misspoke when I said it "cures cancer". BUT, It in fact does slow the cancer cell growth. The feds have a patent on it as a "cure" for cancer, but it's probably a fail safe for them considering the resesrch that has been done on it. Who knows. This is a pretty good read though. Follow this link, and see what you think. https://www.projectcbd.org/guidance/cbd-users-manual

    agree, I cut out sugar/sweets a couple of years ago. (it was normal for me to have a huge crystal candy bowl in the house year around). but something started feeling wrong about consuming sugars,, so I stopped. since then cancer studies have shown when you find a cancer cell it tends to have a sugar cell as a buddy. my second 'addiction' was carbs,, I loved fancy breads,,,,,,,carbs are just sugar with another name. so I avoid them except for the carbs in vegetables. sure every now and then I have a burger with a bun,, but I do try to limit the bun whenever possible,, the bun is then treated like a wrapper I dont eat.

    i dont eat fruit very often,, or honey, never was much interested in soda's. yes my 'diet' is too boring for most people,, but most of those same people are fighting health issues.. I spend that money on experiences instead. (food used to be a hobby/fun activity for me,, I loved trying out new spicy foods,, or super rich.. not anymore,, dairy free & gluten free now 99% of the time)

    I do enjoy eating a big salad,, maybe a little fish or chicken,, but that's all about my intermediate fasting program.

    'my way' is not only way or the best way....its just what I do for my own goals on my journey to aging.

    if i had it all to do over,, my son would not have had dairy products and there would be less gluten on the table. (it seems wrong to me to feed a boy milk full of female hormones)

    THIS EXACTLY! Learning how to eat properly for good health has little to do with what "experts" say, and EVERYTHING to do with what works for one's own body. Nowadays they seem to have reversed themselves about fats, that maybe they're not so bad after all... but with gallstones, I have to be really careful with all fats, and exclude things with high cholesterol almost completely -- no egg yolks other than a little drizzle of yolk (for flavor) into the white, only the very leanest beef, etc, because eating a lot of cholesterol-laden foods just makes me sick, since my gallbladder apparently can't secrete enough bile to digest it properly.

    People talk and talk about no carbs, no milk, etc etc etc... but with my strict limitation on fats, if I didn't eat carbs, I'd starve... so I try to keep it to complex carbs, and lots of both kinds of fiber, to keep the carbs from blasting the hell out of my insulin response. Milk has never bothered me whatsoever -- except I use 2% rather than whole milk, to avoid some cholesterol. But if I went by what "the experts" say, I'd be sick constantly. As an emetophobe, that is totally unacceptable!

    if you ever feel like living dangerously,, watch some vid's about our food supply. (this pains me as I grew up on an organic farm ...back when it wasn't cool,, and people teased us)--they pretty much died in their 60's.

    the FDA/AMA seem to be lying to all of us,, about everything. ie,, take this drug to make ABC pharma company rich,, ignore that only 1% get healed from the drug and 15% are worse off.

    in a way I feel we cant blame the doctors,,,but we can, they believed everything in their training and offer that advice never noticing their 'advice' isn't really helping,, they have become 'managers of your health',, when they should be working towards curing.

    i watch as my once healthy parents are now drug addicts to whatever the dr decides is wrong with them,,, its called aging. pops had several dr's give him 3 high bp drugs,, he mentioned this once,, I said 'hey Pops,, you and I are always just alike,, and we have LOW bp,, so why are you taking high bp meds?.... a few weeks later he went to his old dr,, who took him off all the high bp,, .........: this is crazy! you have normal low bp,, you dont need any drugs'......dad hasn't had a 911 call since to pick him up off the floor. --they still keep him busy for knee, shoulder, joint surgeries ..........(as i roll my eyes).

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that the plethora of meds was one of the factors in my mom's death. Yet she always called me "hypochondriac" simply because I took Human Physiology in school, and read a lot about how the different systems of the body are SUPPOSED to work, and what/how to feed them so that they CAN work right. I can't see where that is "hypochondriac", merely proactive about my own health -- because doctors can only advise from outside; they don't have to live inside the bodies they're "medicating" (poisoning!). It doesn't require an MD nor a PhD to know how to eat right, it only requires PAYING ATTENTION to what you put in your mouth and how it affects you. :facepalm: And listening to "nutrition experts" is a damn good way to kill yourself, or at least make yourself so sick, you WANT to die. :facepalm:

    75% of today's kids are overweight,, eating cereal for breakfast (read::: + a dosage of Round Up pesticide and too much carbs/gluten for the body to process) somewhere in the late 70's/80s,,, so many kids had to be put on ritalin (sp??) hhhmm,,, maybe overdoses of sugar in several dif forms may play a part in that. soda, candy, junk food, lack of exercise programs..........our health was sold to food companies for profit,, all of the govt 'suggestions' are determined by the food industry not science.

    the govt has no need for us once we retire and collect social security.. they only need us up until that point to pay taxes/work to get things done and float the economy.

    these kids that are overweight,, are not likely to make it to 70,, and for many 45-50 is the best they can hope for. (i consider it child neglect or abuse in some cases).

    the idea of fasting is too abusive/shocking to many,, they actually think they will lose their muscle,, the body eats the muscle only after you have no more fat (glycogen) loads,, the brain prefers the fat/glycogen stores to run on. people who fast and stay loyal to the no carbs program after weight goals are met have less issue with the extra skin issue.,, the skin replaces itself every 2 or 3 months,, your body will 'eat the extra skin' to a degree if the actual diet is still maintained/honored.

    I have fasted many times for several days,, its good to get the body to release toxins. every religion has mentioned fasting to some degree.

    (fwiw,, there is a growing new theme of dry fasting,,, which means no food or water for a period of time 24,, 48,, 72,,60 hours,,,,i have not done this 'exactly',,,,,,I am not completely sold on it being safe,,,,,,,but I did drop my water intake to a more normal level,, before I was drinking 20oz of filtered water every 1-2 hours....out of habit. then I saw a story about some kid who 'drowned' that way....I thought that was odd,, but it kept bugging me, Is it possible I could be flooding my body to the point it was unable to absorb nutrition? so I cut my water way back to 60oz a day,, yes I did lose some water weight over the course of a week,, and a 'bloaty feeling' I have since dropped my water to about 50oz.

    the theory behind the dry fast is to starve out 'parasites/bugs/cancer',,,,,,,yes you will also lose some good bacteria and healthy cells,, 'collateral damage for a healthy body'---------jury is still out,, just watching.

    Hmmm.. Fasting strikes me as a really good way to make your body think it's a famine, so better hold on to every one of those fat cells. And going without water/liquids all day? Worst idea I've EVER heard. Even if you don't eat, for whatever reason, the body's tissues ALL require water to function properly.. or hell, function AT ALL. A steady, regular diet of small meals when actually hungry is usually the best way to maintain good health; fads are just that, and not usually healthy or helpful at all.

    To get rid of "parasite/bugs", there's this thing called the liver. It detoxifies the body, and passes the waste to the appropriate excretory function.

    Not to mention, a majority of all cereals are GMO's. They say corn, but it's Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) It's not even real corn. Doritos, Fritos, and all chips made from "corn" are GMO's, UNLESS it states organic and contains no GMO's. Gmo's have been known to cause massive tumors in lab rats, yet we continue to feed this crap to our kids. Not mine anyways, but a majority of the population eats this crap. Another thing, is that all of our tap water, and most bottled water, contains fluoride. If you research that, you will find that fluoride is not supposed to be ingested. It even states that on toothpaste. It's the very reason they tell you not to swallow more than what is needed for brushing. If you do, you are supposed to contact the poison control center immediately. If you contact city, county or state government about it, they will tell you that it promotes healthy teeth and they are required by law to add it to drinking water. Another big government lie designed to pad the pockets of not only them, but big pharma as well. Fluoride causes neurological disorders over time if ingested regularly. You can put 100% undeniable proof of all this in front of most people, and you get wrote off as a tin foil hat wearer. That's the main problem with most people in this country. They don't care, because it's easier to be spoon fed information by the media, and TV ads, than to believe truth or reality. AND they consider themselves "educated" at the same time. It's quite sad really.

    the fasting 'fad' is mentioned in most religions. and is still practiced. as for fat cells technically they dont go away,, they are like pockets,, we fill them with our over consumption to use during real times of famine.(fwiw every fat cell is surrounded by 3 or 4 water cells,, maybe part of the reason when someone looses weight the other person puts them down with 'you only lost water weight'

    there are several medical and ted talk videos on the subject as well as the whole internet to offer another point of view.

    tv show naked and afraid is really interesting to watch the impact of no food (very little water) on the body..those people go 20 days with the occasional snake or grubworm

    just because the media didnt tell you all of the above doesnt mean it dont have merrit :)

    as for water fasting,, i too think its a bit drastic for some,, but if most people are drinking all of that water they are carrying around,, then they likely could handle a minor water fast. --this is 1 i am watching to see where it goes.
