Are there any benefits to taking CBD oil?

In most cases the answer is no, you do not need a prescription to take CBD. However, there are still a small handful of states that require you to have a medical prescription or join a program in order to purchase CBD products.
Does CBD oil expire?
WARNING: I have read reports of honokiol dependence and withdrawal symptoms that are similar to, and rival the intensity of, benzodiazapines. One guy on Reddit reported serious issues coming off of it. Therefore, I recommend honokiol for occasional use only.
When I was sick and suffering from OCD-type thinking I started inositol in 500 – 1,000mg doses and gradually increased up to 6,000mg, 3x per day for a total dose of 18g per day. It worked pretty well & offered relief fast.

CBD isolate is a ultra-purified form of CBD that is usually over 99% pure. The minor cannabinoids (THC, CBG, etc.), aromatic terpenes & plant materials have been completely removed by a process called chromatography. It has a mellow “clean” feel but it doesn’t offer the same level of relief as full spectrum CBD oil. The advantage is that is it is less likely to trigger a positive drug test, and there is minimal risk of feeling “high.” For CBD isolate I recommend Source Naturals SourcePure CBD – it is synthetically made (they claim it’s made from ‘orange peels’ which I doubt, but maybe they use terpenes as a precursor) but I do believe their “100% THC free” claims are credible.

I personally found that kept me awake when I took it before bed, but I notice calmer thoughts from taking 3,000mg glycine per day in my morning smoothie… along with 1 capsule of NAC. Experiment and see when it works best for you.
