CBD Oil vs. Antidepressants

CBD Oil vs. Antidepressants

September 24, 2018

Hello guys and welcome back.

I am very exiting publish this blog about CBD oil. Cannabis been around us for thousands of years and many civilizations use Hemp as natural remedy. In 19 century Cannabis became illegal drug and marked by many governments as Psychoactive Drug with no medical advantages. How ever this opinion slowly shifting as research is slowly aloud and many EU states starting respecting Cannabis as natural remedy with medical use. I think that it is important to say that I never used any drugs and many of my friends know my strong opinion about any types of drugs. Also I think is very important to say that there are no records that any human being ever died from over dose by marihuana. How ever, I do NOT advise you to use any illegal substances in this blog. This is my short experience with CBD oil and Antidepressants.  Ok lets started.

 Ok first I would like to talk about Antidepressants. About 6 months ago I was prescribe Sertraline 50mg 1 tablet a day. Sertraline is Antidepressant from group of substances called SSRIs - Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors. Sertraline, Zoloft, Paxil, Effexor these are types of tablets you get prescribe once you get diagnosed with Anxiety and depression. These tablets are also prescribe to treat Post Traumatic Stress, Panic disorder or OCD. How this SSRIs works?? -  Serotonin is one of the chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) that carry signals between brain cells. SSRIs block the reabsorption (reuptake) of serotonin in the brain, making more serotonin available. SSRIs are called selective because they seem to primarily affect serotonin, not other neurotransmitters.

What about side effects?? They are sooo many side-effects that you will spend here probably good couple of hours go thru all of them but from my experience - When I started, second day I felt like my head is hollow, also felt like I can feel my brain in my head, little dizzy and just felt weird for first week. After first week this common side-effect gone and I was experiencing another common side-effect or symptom of using Sertraline - loss of sexual desire and other sexual problems, such as erectile dysfunction and decreased orgasm. I was  a bit worried but been told by doctor that this is absolutely normal and should go away within few weeks. I have to say that starting on Antidepressants wasn't pleasant. 

 

After an hour reading leaflet how to use, when to use and what is Sertraline, I reach a section called Side Effects and have to say that was scary. I was recommended by my CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) Therapist that I should inform my husband that I am starting this medication as they are many cases that people using SSRIs medication became suicidal or aggressive. Scary stuff huh?? Of course I was telling myself ohh I will be fine its not gonna happened to me... As standard human thinking but also screaming for help and wanted to feel positive and normal as before was one of the reasons I decided to give a try. I was always against any Antidepressants and if you Subscriber on Netflix have a look for documentaries about this chemical poison.

What also fascinate me is that until today any medical specialist doesn't have a full idea how human brain works and antidepressants are not CURE, they treat symptoms and basically make you feel emotionless and move all your worries in to back of your head. There is one question to ask... What's happened once you stop taking them... Have to say I don't know.... I am using this pills for 6 months, minimum time recommended  by my GP. I am on my last full dose now and end of the September I am lowering my dosage to offload myself completely. I was advise to inform people around me that mood swings and irritation are usual during this period but should settle within a week.

 

     Well have to say that these pills helped, how ever they not good for long term using as they damage your brain. Because I am a little bit anxious about offloading myself from medication I started to do research how people deal with it and also what can help me. I am all ready meditating and using mindfulness and that's a great help, but wasn't sure if that's enough. Then I came a cross to one herbal remedy shop in Whitby. As back pain sufferer I was looking for something ease my Sciatica back pain. Reason was that, I was fed up eating chemicals like Co-Codamol, Ibuprofen, Amitriptyline every time I was in pain. When I walk in in to the shop very lovely lady greeted me and offer help. I told her about my back problem but did not mention that I suffer from Anxiety and Depression. She offered me 100% natural cream but also mentioned CBD oil to relive pain but also helps with anxiety, sleep, blood sugars, blood pressure etc. I never heard about CBD oil and decided to do my research...

 

 

  What is CBD?? Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of cannabis. It was discovered in 1940 and initially thought not to be pharmaceutically active. It is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in hemp plants, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract.

There is no THC compound that stimulate your mental state - "make you high" and therefore is safe to use for adults and children.

 

Today Cannabis is getting more and more popular and known for healing powers. Medical Cannabis is legally grow all over the Europe.

 

What is CDB good for: There are many ways and many thinks to use this oil:

 Multiple sclerosis pain

Epilepsy

Chronic Pain Relive

Anxiety, Depression

Diabetes 

Chemotherapy patients pain and nausea relieve 

 

Unfortunately there is not enough research about positive and negative effects of CDB and other compounds extracted from Hemp plant but World is slowly changing and I would imagine that one day we may find cure for Cancer and scratch our heads thinking God this cure was in front of us for thousands of years...

Where to get CDB oil?? Go online and research.  I got mine from eBay for £12 free postage 10ml bottle 1500mg of CDB mixed with hemp oil. I am using only 2 drops at night time before bed. I have to mention that I feel amazing, chilled, calm, relaxed pain free. I mention this here again - CDB OIL DO NOT CONTAIN THC AND DO NOT MAKE YOU HIGH- unless you purchase CDB with THC and I would guess that is illegal. We are going to visit Amsterdam end of the month and I will probably purchase some oil there as well.

 If you suffer with any Mental or Physical conditions you should definitely try this food supplement remedy. Just be aware that CDB oil coming in different strength I am using 15% CDB just because more stronger CDB content less other helpful cannabinoids. There is so many stories around us talking about people who fight for right use Cannabis to treat or help their condition or help others. I will keep you updated about my journey with CBD. My plan is that when I start offloading myself from Antidepressants I will use 1 day pill and next day CDB for 1 month and will definitely make a blog about it.. Just advise you that - ALWAYS READ INFORMATION LEAFLETS using any medication or food supplements.

 

I would like to thank you for your time reading this blog and if you got any experiences you want to share let me know. Thank you to my subscribers and readers for continuing support.

 

Happy reading guys.
