I might get the same effect from placebos, and maybe I am taking placebos, paying for a placebo effect. :shrug:
Placebos can be as effective, or even more effective, than active agents, and they don't have any negative side effects. Well, they don't have negative effects (nocebos) unless you think they do anyway. :?
Why'd you have to go and put that in my head? Now I'm going to go hypochondriac.

Following up on what I'm taking...

I don't want to advertise, so I'll just share the basic info on the label.

The one I am taking now is 550 "broad spectrum". It doesn't have proteins and the other stuff that goes into "full spectrum".

I take the recommended dose in the morning.

The one I took before was 500 "full spectrum".

I'm not sure what these labels mean. I briefly read up and the "spectrum" has to do with vitamins and proteins that they add to the oil that are said to enhance the effects. :shrug: I can't imagine there is any standard between brands, just proprietary cocktails.

The one I am taking now provides 3rd party tests and indicates they only contain CBD, and untraceable THC.

The one I took previously - does not provide tests.

Who knows with this stuff. I get the sense its all over priced.

CBD oil is anti-anxiety, unlike THC. But, all CBD oil contains traces of THC. Unless its the CBD isolate. I tried it for my arthritis, but to be honest mixing CBD with THC works better for physical pain. The problem is, pain is there for a reason, and to defeat pain without addressing the causes can involve risk. In the case of arthritis, easing the pain and then over-exercising will actually increase the damage to the joints. The problem of course with THC is that it triggers a cascade of random thoughts that run all out of control. Not really pleasant for a meditator.

Broad spectrum, full spectrum means by percentage the lipid content in the hemp is reflected in the final product. The CBD has not been fully isolated. CBD isolate is available in crystal and gel cap form at greater cost. There's yet another molecule to consider, CBN. It could be the CBN content has the mellowing effect. CBN products are available now as sleep aids. CBD is much too expensive, the cheapest extraction process uses some form of alcohol, which i'm not sure can be fully recovered. Therefore CBD will always be more costly than a good shot of whiskey. If you have an abundance of industrial hemp available locally, you can extract it cheaply using the "loaded brownie" method, dispersing the CBD in butter or oil with heat, then cooking with the butter.
