My First Experience with CBD

I tried CBD for the first time about a week ago. The product I tried was CBD FX Vegan Gummy Bears. I chose these because I wanted to see if CBD works for me, but I didn’t want to buy and expensive oil and then find it doesn’t. These Jellies were £7.99 for a pack of 8. I bought a pack of the standard ones and a pack of the ones with added Turmeric & Spirulina.

I chose these particular gummies because they are vegan. I’m vegetarian and lactose intolerant, so I eat a mostly vegan diet. There are a lot of CBD edibles around, but vegetarian and Vegan CBD edibles are trickier to find.

I was working from home when they arrive and my neck and ankle were hurting. I’m recovering from a broken ankle so that hurts regularly. The neck pain was probably down to sitting at a computer for too long. I wanted to try them straight away, but I was working and I thought I shouldn’t take cannabis while working.

Then I reminded myself that CBD is derived from cannabis, but it isn’t actually cannabis and has no THC, so it won’t get me high and taking it while working should be fine, so I ate one of each. I didn’t notice an immediate effect, but it needs to be digested and get into my blood stream, so I didn’t expect to.

About half an hour later, I thought to myself “I don’t feel any different. They don’t work.” Then I noticed that I wasn’t in pain, so they had worked.

It’s weird. Even though I know it contains no Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive part of cannabis, I still expected to feel ‘stoned’ or at least slightly drowsy, which is how co-codamol sometimes makes me feel.

I’m not making any medical claims. CBD oil is sold as a dietary supplement and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease or condition. Just because I personally noticed a reduction in pain, doesn’t mean you will.
