CBD Oil is a fantastic substance. Derived from the cannabis plant, it brings TONS of useful applications to my life (and it won’t get you high!!)
First things first: vaping CBD oil DOES NOT get you high.
It is derived from the cannabis plant. But it is NOT the same as smoking and/or vaporizing actual cannabis.
In order to get high, you need THC to be present.
There is ZERO THC in CBD oil.
This is why it is legal.
I got into CBD oil kinda by accident, but also because I’m an information junky and I’ll try anything once if it gets me results.
A few years back I started suffering from migraines and anxiety, a lovely combination.
It sucked. Big time.
I think most of it was down to my lifestyle at the time; lots of partying and lots of drinking, as well as lots of exercise, lots of working, and no meat (I was a vegan back then).
The doctor says I burnt myself out. This was my systems way of telling me to slow down.
Sick of feeling like crap all the time, I reeled in my more outlandish habits and focussed on relaxing more.
Nothing really happened until I fixed my diet though; I started eating proper protein again – only organic, grass-fed stuff, mind – and things started to improve.
I felt stronger and recovered better after exercise.
But I still had pangs of anxiety that simply would not quit.
Anxiety Is A Bastard
I had no history of it, no prior experiences with, no mental illness, no nothing, basically.
It just turned up out of the blue and kicked me in the nuts.
And it kept on doing it for the best part of a year.
This was before I started VapeBeat as well, so circa 2015.
Does CBD Work For Anxiety?
Kinda. It definitely helped me A LOT – and there is science to support this.
CBD basically helps in the production of anandamide, which is the brain’s bliss molecule.
And I think we could all do with a bit more of that in our lives!
I started taking CBD back in 2015, and it’s a habit I’ve kept up ever since.
I don’t bosh it all day long, but I’ll have some in the morning and some in the evening.
How I Take CBD Oil?
Simple: I plop some in one of my Pod Mods, I’m using the SMOK Rolo Badge at the moment.
This way, I can vape AND get the benefits of CBD all at the same time.
How Does CBD Make Me Feel?
Happy, basically. A lot more content with things. It’s odd because it’s not a “high” per se; it’s more of a grounding-type feeling.
You feel more “in-sync” with yourself, and there’s a really nice, mild euphoric feeling as well.
I mean, it’s not like your stoned, you just feel more wholeness and content.
It’s hard to explain, but it is a lovely feeling.
CBD and Exercise
This one is weird. I’ve found that vaping CBD oil before I work out and right after seems to help.
I thought this was just anecdotal, just me being something of a freak.
But after some Googling, I discovered that many top-flight athletes use it for recovery and focus when training.
Best Place To Buy CBD Oil?
There are A LOT of options. Like, way too many to list.
I’ve tried a bunch between 2015 and now, but my regular suppliers – the places I use and trust – are as follows:
Let me know how you get along with CBD; you can shout me on Twitter (@vapebeat).
