Cbd oil for depression forum

CBD Oil does it work for depression?

I have been prescribed Citalopram for anxiety/depression. I have never been a pill fan and am not comfortable taking the anti demos, I guess I am a bit scared. The thought of taking them makes me feel even more anxious. Has anyone taken CBD oil for depression/ anxiety? Or any positive views on Citalopram?

Yes, it was a life changer for my son when he crashed out of uni with severe depression. Got him back on his feet and able to have the confidence to look for a job. Much better than some of the earlier ones. Every drug has side effects, but part of your current state is the inability to see that anything provides hope.

You have nothing to lose by taking them. If they don’t work you can stop them and try something else, but don’t rule them out without trying. Takes at least a fortnight to kick in.

Good luck, you can get through this.

B9exchange I don’t think you answered the question that was being asked. FOwey wanted to know about taking CBD oil, but your reply seems to be about the citalopram. Combining the two does not sound sensible to me, as the effects of each would be increased, perhaps dangerously. Take either one or the other, and be guided by your GP.

With utmost respect Elegran and your views are amongst the most respected on GN, including mine, the OP did ask for opinions on Citalopram.
I have been taking it for a few years now since my H travelled down the road that is Alzheimer’s.
I only take a low dose, 20 mgs daily but it has been good for me.

If I were the OP I would give it a fair trial, 2/3 months before judging
Personally I would rather take something tried and tested and approved by experts than something else.

If it doesn’t work then go onto CDB oil.

I myself am trying Turmeric for my osteoarthritis after convention remedies are no longer working.

I can’t comment on CBD oil as I have never tried it, (I am curious though to know if it would help my back pain).
I took Citalopram for about eighteen months and it did help my depression to decline gradually. I had no side effects and do definitely feel that it helped me. Good luck FOwey.

Annsixty Those who have tried Citalopram have seen the bits about that more readily that those about CBD Oil, and most have answered about that. I have not had either Citalopram or CBD Oil, so I saw the thread title question first, then the two questions in the post. Two out of the three were on CBD Oil.

If the OP wanted views on Citalopram, why label the thread “CBD Oil does it work for depression?” and ask “Has anyone taken CBD for depression/anxiety?” with the “Or any positive views on Citalopram?” as an afterthought at the end? I suspect that she is considering going for the oil in preference to the mainstream drug, or even both. If I were her I would consider the fact that cannabis is just as much a “pill” as the citalopram, and that medical advice is not to add it to other drugs.

Being “natural” doesn’t mean it has no drawbacks or side effects, particularly when combined with other medication. Arsenic and strychnine are both “natural” too.

@gottgetbtr‍ I have tried CBD, but it did not do much help for me. I have recently started to try white and green kratom. seems to help more with my anxiety.

@depressedme hey friend, I hope you are well. I wanted you to know that I tried some green Kratom today and I Love it!

I have Lupus and I use CBD oil and THC as it is legal in Florida. I am in a bad flare. Went to the Dr and had to go back on Prednisone for a minute to get all the inflammation and swelling down.

My Dr is so awesome as we talked about the different types of therapies and medication and how we wanted to proceed.

So I said yes to the Prednisone and no to Plaquinil.

This time my symptoms were severe arthritic pain in my hands, elbows, knees, ankles and my vision as well. I have never had this much wide spread pain all over so we decided that it would be best to go on the Paleo diet. They actually have an Autoimmune Paleo diet!

We didn’t go that crazy but I know it will be a huge help to my body.

So today, I bought some green Kratom and I absolutely LOVE it!

I had read about the headaches from the red so I did some research and decided to go with green. I have to tell you that it is working on my pain. Took it down from an 8 to a 4. It doesn’t make you high but does work on anxiety YES! Being on Prednisone makes me shake inside constantly and I hate that feeling, green Kratom works for anxiety.

I hope this helps as I try to stay as natural as possible and stay away from as much medication as I can.

Have a wonderful evening and God bless .

@Jujubeaner‍ have you tried CBD

@naturalremedygurl‍ I am so happy to hear that green kratom worked for you! It has done wonders for me in regard to mood and anxiety. Did you purchase it through a store in Florida? There are some good online shops that have much better prices than most head shops I have been too . and the American Kratom Association recently created new GMP guidelines and they publish the vendors that have met those requirements. i buy from only vendors listed there now.

@naturalremedygurl do you feel that the green kratom helped your pain more than the CBD and/or THC?

I have never tried CBD oil. I would never try anything with THC in it considering that smoking weed was how I developed panic attacks. I’m a retired LPN so I know what THC can do to you. CBD oil doesn’t contain THC. I use it for some of our foster cats but it doesn’t seem to do much. When I developed panic disorder I was smoking weed which contained THC. I have friends that are in the medical field and have asked for their knowledge on THC and other so called natural remedies to help depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Melatonin is one thing you can take. But every single one said that THC should not be a used in the psychiatric care of a patient. I’m not trying to debate anyone taking it. It’s not legal here in my state and I believe if someone wants to use it and it helps them then it’s up to them. I take Lexapro and I can use Klonopin when needed. I hope everyone is able to deal with this awful disease.

@depressedme hey y’all, yes, I use CBD almost daily, but I found green Kratom and have really noticed a difference both physically and emotionally/mentally. I believe I have a high tolerance for mostly everything so I start slow and track how much I’m taking and how long before I have to increase my dosage.

With the green Kratom, which I have been using for about 1 month now, I have not had to increase my dosage yet so for me, this is awesome and it is more cost effective.

Yes it does work for pain. The red has even better pain relief but I personally have not tried it yet, but is next on my list. One note, in researching Kratom, it should be noted that with the red, you may experience headaches if you use too much. You may also experience a heady feeling along with a jittery feeling.

Now having said that, my Dr. just put me on the Paleo diet as it is basic and you eat whole foods like a cave man. Sounds strange but I am feeling better!

So yes between the CBD/THC, Kratom, and choosing to use food as medicine. For me I want to be as natural as I can be without lab made medication.

I hope I have helped and if y’all have any more questions, hit me up.

I do apologize for not being able to get back sooner, but I am now taking care of my 92 year old mom. She has been ill for a bit but is getting better.
