I'd like to start this thread, as an open discussion of CBD and CBD-based products (they have recently shown up a lot in stores near me and are in high demand), with a general overview of CBD, as presented from a qualified Ph.D. in Medicine. Not to say that this doctor is extremely special in any way, but has prepared this informative video on CBD for understanding at the level of the general public:




Discuss below.
Also it's fine to include some discussion of THC, I was thinking due to the entourage effect when CBD is combined (e.g., "full spectrum" oils).

Dangit, I thought you'd written CQB. Was hoping this was an Expanse thread.

We have lots of green-cross weed stores around here. They seem profitable.

Thought it was the definition of CBD, as in central business district.

I've been using a CBD tincture for three or four years now, and find it definitely helps cut anxiety and relaxes me a bit. It's a full-spectrum tincture, so I do get the entourage effect. I've tried a pure CBD isolate in the past and felt it didn't quite provide the results I get with the full-spectrum oil.

I live in Indiana, and CBD only just became legal late last year, so I was ordering the tinctures online over the years. To be honest, based on the prices and quality of the "Indiana-legal" CBD products on the shelves here, I'll definitely stick with my online supplier. The prices in the stores here are insane. And, judging from the few samples I've tried of the "legal" oils, it's all mostly crap, as far as I can tell.

I just wish spammers would stop trying to sell dubious CBD to me via email. So much spam.

Yeah same, and somehow Gmail catches every bit of spam I get EXCEPT these.

I just feel like it’s hard to know which products work the best. Like, I’ve taken a CBD isolate tincture that has lavender so it’s supposed to reduce stress but it kept me awake like caffeine (well not quite that bad), and then I tried a full spectrum product that made me a bit sleepy but worked better for over stimulation. I might consider trying vape pens...

Anyway, DEAR GOSH, apparently I'm also getting a ton of CBD spam

The CBD products being sold at gas stations are 100% grade-A snakeoil.

The stuff being sold at dispensaries is interesting, but the effects of various terpenes are not very well known, nor are they consistent amongst different people.

The biggest issue with all pot-related products is due to the drug being schedule-1 for the better part of a century, effectively gagging any real research that could have been done. Now we’ve allowed companies to sell pot products and many of them are making quite dubious claims about what they can do. I think pot in general has a massive potential for replacing opioids, and CBD products may turn out to be very much able to reduce anxiety and sleeplessness, but for right now I remain quite skeptical.
