CBD Oil vs. Antidepressants

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 an
