Well, as you all know by now, I have rather taken to the weed. No…not the full-on, peace-and-love-dude spliff beloved of the cast of Hair way back when…..that was never me, because why do that when it only encourages you to eat more. No, this is CBD oil which is a compound derived from the cannabis plant but with no THT, the psychoactive components, so none of the hallucinatory problems.. no hit..no high.
What it does seem to do is calm me down and soothe any stresses and strains, so that I can sail through the day serenely without biting everyone’s head off. I even manage to get in a session of exercise most days without all my normal moans and clock watching… plus I don’t seem to need the usual sugar-hit afterwards, so the biscuits are still in the tin, much to everyone’s amusement.
And all this simply by taking CBD sublingual drops three times a day.
Now I know that there are a lot of claims for this compound at the moment, particularly as medicinal cannabis has just been given the green light for prescription by qualified doctors to help with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and MS for instance, but I can only pass on my personal experience, because since taking CBD oil I have found that life is a lot calmer.
And did I mention that I am sleeping better? Most nights I am out at one function or another, and don’t manage to get into bed until well after midnight. Up to now, falling asleep, and staying asleep, has been a problem, so it came as a revelation to realise that my sleep patterns had changed… I was sleeping more deeply and waking up refreshed and ready to go.
Who knew! Well, Jennifer Aniston, Olivia Wilde and Alessandra Ambrosia for a start, who all say they use CBD for stress and insomnia and now that word is out I am sure that more top names will follow.
