    It's made from hemp but apparently it's commonplace in the industry to lie about it.

    CBD is great. I love it.

    But I think it is important to note here that CBD oil is not a cure for anything.

    I've been using it for my migraines and found a substantual (almost complete) reduction in migrainal headaches. But if you take CBD oil for psychological benefits such as depression, always keep in mind and consider the reasons you might have been depressed in the first place. So that when you find that CBD oil lessens the depression, you don't forget to make an effort to compound on that benefit and take action to further improve your life. Always realize that while your depression might have become unfelt or lessened, it is probably not 'gone'.

    Yeah I got some CBD vaping liquid (based on my favorite vaping flavor) and I must say it DOES relax me.
    Not sure about whether it helps me with headaches, I haven't used it much.

    When it comes to vaping though it's really one of these things where you have to take a leap of faith / curiosity and shell out over 50 bucks for some tiny bottle. I thought I'd vape through it in a day at first, but I'm only half way through it 3 months after the purchase. I don't regret it though I don't find it to be particularly amazing either. Might buy again on occasion.

    I have mixed feelings on this one. Just based on personal anecdotal evidence there's a lot in the way of placebo, faddism, and the downsides of occasional cannabis withdrawal (anxiety, insomnia, mood changes) which make it less appealing as a lifestyle choice and more of a recreational one. Personally, my body doesn't metabolize inhaled very well, but cbd gummies and tinctures are mildly relaxing, never euphoric. It's fun socially and great for bonding with people, but I really never think about it otherwise. I'd label it as mostly harmless as long as people don't peddle it as a new snake oil.

    I personally respect the placebo effect for what it actually is: A unification between mind and body which improves overall state.
    Something that helps you is... helping you. It's as simple as that.

    "a unification between mind and body" I honestly didn't consider that aspect of it. I like that; it's a good point. If it's self-fulfilling, it's only as good or as bad as you make it for yourself. My take on placebos is that they are only as strong as your positive thinking/emotions are to improve your well-being. So there comes a point where reliance on CBD oil is really dependent on what you want from it, as opposed to for instance something psychotropic or psychedelic that will hit you regardless of your feelings for it or expectations from it. (I'm not actually denying the powerful effects of cannabis)

    Yep. I've said similar for decades: "Never underestimate the power of the placebo."

    I first came to appreciate it in an unusual way. I desperately wanted a cigarette. I took one from my [ex] husbands pack, lit it up and immensely enjoyed nearly the entire thing. A cigarette had never tasted so good. Then I realized it was a non-menthol
    I would have sworn it was a menthol when I first started smoking, so I was greatly confused and then deeply amused.

    I have similar problems with medication (possibly). I start taking anything with great skepticism. Then I find it works better than expected and I'm happy... for about 1-2 months and then I might as well not be taking anything. My p-doc suggests it may not be a placebo but my body adjusting to it and then rejecting it.
    Whatever the case, it's exceptionally annoying.

    I've suffered from chronic migraines since I was 6 years old. A hereditary problem in my family. It appears to be associated with my asthma, severe seasonal allergies, and anxiety. My neurologist says that's not uncommon. I've been doing physical therapy for a few months, which helps a lot, but I can't do this forever. If CBD oil actually helps people with migraines, I'd love to know more about that.
