CBD didn't work for me
I live in CA, where Medical Marijuana is legal.
I first took CBD hemp oil, and had a CBD vape pen, but it didn't work that well for me, so my doctor told me to get a medical marijuana card.
I then took some CBD/THC chews, but they didn't work at all for me. The only thing that worked was a pot brownie, but I took waaaay too much and was high for about 30 hours. After that, I got turned off weed, since I didn't want to go into work high (and I can't take it to university).
If you live in the US, get it from hemp. It's federally legal (at least according to my doctors), and so you can take it across state lines.
Since Marijuana is still a class whatever drug, and federally illegal, there's not much research on it. Additionally, you can't take it over state lines.
Additionally, each strain of weed might work differently on you, even if they have the same percentage of THC or CBD, just because they have different amounts of other compounds. Nobody really knows why.
If you do choose weed, your "budtender" at a dispensary will be able to guide you towards what works best for you. Unfortunately, you're at the mercy of what's in stock there, and it pricey.
However, you will notice CBD/THC oil is cheaper than pure CBD oil. My budtender pointed that out to me, and its because the extra step of purification to make weed CBD oil.
