CBD oil?

Hi folks, I am new on here & am just curious to hear your opinions & experience of using CBD oil.
is it really as good as the reports I have read or just something else to waste your money on? I have actually tried it in the past but it was a Holland & Barrett product retailing at £20 for a tiny vile. I took it for a short while buying a total of 4 vile before deciding that I wasn’t getting any benefit. I appreciate that I didn’t really give it a proper chance to work, but I wasn’t sure if I was using the correct product! I have tried to read up on the subject but got confused by the range of oils. There was 1 that caught my eye, I think it was called Anana oil or something similar but it was so expensive,
So if anybody on here is having success using the oil I would appreciate it if you would share the type & cost of what you are using?
I expect that this information is already on the site somewhere but I only joined a couple of days back & I am still finding my way around.
Sorry if my message is a bit abrupt but this is just the way I roll, I am a little impulsive.
Also I just wanted to get a post out there.
sorry.

I use cbd oil but not from holland and barret, you need to buy 10% or over in strengh or it won’t work, i find it really helps pain and to help you sleep but perhaps to won’t work for everyone

Hi @diaflash I spent a lot of time reading beginning of last year. I took the ‘plunge’ April last year and do find it beneficial. I take 2 different oils, one during the day and the other before bed. The reason for 2 different is they are made from different strains, are different strengths and I feel help differently. I think like ms it’s an individual thing for each of us and the amount of drops too 😉

@simone & adamski.
Thank you also for replying to my post.
I have ordered the Blue from CBD brothers to try but I am not sure that I selected the correct site! The site I placed my order with was called theoriginalalternative.com its done now so just wait to what turns up.
Just for my benefit is this the right site? every time I entered CBD brothers into Google it took to a different page, all CBD oil sites but not always mentioning the CBD brothers?
I will report back on how I find it once it arrives & iv’e tried it a few times.

I am hoping that it well help with my hand dexterity which is causing me a lot of distress continuously cramping up!
I am just recovering from a relapse I suffered in March where I lost my peripheral vision but it is improving now slowly.
Thanks again to all who posted!

@diaflash, theoriginalalternative was cbd brother’s. The company moved to jersey and changed the name. I use their blue in the day, it’s 25% cbd. The purple oil is what helps me sleep, it’s 16% cbd.
I feel it has the best choices available.

my CBD come from healthspan.co.uk as most of the rubbish in the high street is hemp, I have been on it for a while, also on FaceBook there are CBD sites, take care as a lot of these companies charge, my blog lists a site where you can see the benefits of CBD

I use 15mg full spectrum cbd oil. The helpfulness of it lasts a long time.

Hi, would you mind telling me in what way it helps you? I am having amongst other issues a real problem with hand dexterity in such away that it feels like my fingers have become magnetic & are sticking together, this makes it impossible to do some simple tasks like buttoning up a shirt, lifting coins from a table or texting on my mobile . I am hoping that the CBD oil will somehow neutralise this magnetism & offer me some relief.
I have bladder weakness which is a real pain, going to have Botox in my Bladder June 3rd. My memory & cognitive skills are completely shot.
I appreciate that in the grand scheme of things my difficulties must seem very futile compared to others, but I feel that this is what is holding me back the most because it effects everything that I do in life.
I only started on the Blue CBD today so very early days.
Thank you for your response!

Hi all, I haven’t been on the site for a little while due to being on holiday. So has promised here is my update after taking the Blue CBD from theoriginalalternative.com since 22nd of May. I know that its only early days but I can honestly say that I feel no different. After examining my empty bottle I noticed that on the label it states >5% CBD! A couple of the posts on here state that the dose needs to be at least 10% CBD or higher & a couple have said that they are taking 15% CBD. So do I try it again & order a higher dosage? Or am I just throwing good money after bad, your thoughts please?
Any input would be appreciated.

diaflash, as I have mentioned, the CBD that I take is 15%, sometimes I take Two capsules I I know there are changes in the weather or I am going to have busy times, when I am in the States, the drops I take are 66%, strong I know, here in the UK that strength is available. In answer to your question, yes it is worth taking, the results are noted, not just for MS but general well being, look onto the internet http://www.wholesorts.com my blog, I thing the June edition I give links, if you are on Facebook there is a great company listed, I have a years supply as it was a deal from Healthspan, good luck

Hi Roger, thanks for getting back to me. I have already ordered another batch but this time I opted for the Purple which they say is 16% CBD.
I will have a look on Facebook at Healthspan & maybe joint there group. I will also check out your Blog!
Cheers.

Hello again. Just had a quick look at your Blog & I have a little query, it may just be me not being used to navigating around the Blog but I couldn’t find the June edition with the links.

I am in the United States and I live in Florida. A friend of mine that Used to live in Colorado recommended a CBD oil place that they make everything from scratch in Colorado and let me tell you I have found that it actually does really work and it’s acceptable with my job especially working in the medical field because I made sure that I can take the CBD oil while working if you’re interested to know where I got it from just let me know and I will gladly tell you where and get the address for you.

Hello kris & thank you for the post.
Has I have said, I just ordered another batch from theoriginalalternative.com of the Purple strain. However, I would really appreciate it if you could let me have the address so that I have another outlet to try if the Purple isn’t that good.
Many thanks.

Hi @diaflash

I use CBD oil and have noticed positive effects in reducing spasms, twitches and a mild psychogenic tremor. My sleep has also improved but I’ve been trying a couple of things for that, which makes it harder to attribute to the CBD oil.

Quality and process are really important.

I tried a couple of oils before finding the right quality for my needs. I get it delivered from a shop in Edinburgh called Hemp (https://hempcanhelp.co.uk). It’s expensive but worth it, I find.

With process, consistency over time is the important thing. The benefits for me kicked in 2-3 weeks after taking every morning and night. I started on 5% and then increased to 10%.

I don’t find that it has much immediate effect i.e. if my muscles are feeling tense it won’t immediately relax them. Rather, over the time that I’ve taken CBD oil consistently, my general level of spasticity has reduced.

Hope useful.

@beefree.
Thank you for your contribution to this thread.
I am currently using theoriginalalternative.com for my oil but am only on my second batch. I haven’t noticed any improvements yet but I’m only on my 2nd lot which I increased to 16% CBD so I will have to wait a few weeks & hopefully there might be some positive results to report!
I have bookmarked the link you posted just in case I need to change.
Thanks.
