I have been on the CBD experiment now for about a month and a half now. These are some of my observations.
For myself, 60 mg of the oil seems to be best. You absolutely can not get high off of this stuff (at least with the laws regulating the stuff in this state), and any more than that seem to be that point at which I experience diminishing returns.
How would I describe it? For me, I'm noticing three things in particular - reduction in anxiety, increased stamina (but not like an energy spike), and good sleep.
It's very similar to the energy generated or modulated by plain brown rice for me. A few hours after eating a simple bowl of that and I am surprisingly calm and chill. Complex carbs and all, which I probably don't eat a lot of in the first place.
I've been reading more of the scientific literature on this stuff (not too deeply, but I try to consider the source on what I'm reading up on), and it's a bit more complicated than the average person may consider.
The work nightmare dreams seem to have faded a bit in regularity, but lately I have dreaming of my exes. I prefer to dream of Sandra. Dreams of Marie make me a bit sad and angry.
Marie and I had very different energies. Mentally equals. Maybe it was the age difference and the work that had begun to wear me down? I know at 40 I started feeling really vulnerable and aimless in life. Could have been the YEARS of drinking and abusing caffeine, dunno.
