My experiement with CBD cream - full spectrum extracted from hemp

I tried a cbd cream, full spectrum of a company from Germany ( cbdee.eu ) from ebay. They sell their cream through ebay and sell oral drops from their website. The cream costs roughly 22 usd and shipping 7 usd for 1200 mg 80%, in 15ml (it comes in a compact round plastic box).
https://www.ebay.com/str/socialsoap This is their store on ebay.com

I applied 4 finger tips each on the back of my palms. The first three days I experienced excellent increase in both physical and mental energy, without the wired feeling. Then from the fourth day I experienced tiredness and vertigo and a tighness at the back of my neck.

So I reduced the dosage (applied only 2 finger tips instead of the 8 that I took for the first 3 days). The fatigue vanished but the vertigo still persists even though it has come down considerably.

I was in continuous touch with the manufacturer through emails in ebay.com. They said it is unlikely that their cbd cream could cause this. I asked them what % of the cream gets absorbed into the bloodstream from the skin, to which they replied that zero % gets through to the bloodstream, which i am not able to accept. It was a powerful cream.

I have stopped using the cream. Does anybody else have experience using any similar cbd cream ?

I have ordered c60 from https://www.goodandcheapc60oo.com/ I will be getting it in a week's time. I will post my experience of it.

Do the capsules give you energy (either mental or physical) ? Does it cause any GI discomfort ? Which brand ? Thanks.

hi @raghav , No Gi discomfort at all! I like Elixinol.com for my CBD oil. I do not think it gives me energy, I think it is calming to my system overall. It is great at calming me mentally after an event where I am physically with people.

The B vitamins work for some.. They make me feel too anxious, but I am going to start a tiny bit of B12 via nasal spray next week. I start very slowly with everything.

Are you taking any vitamin C?

For me CBD oil calms, but it is not sedating. I have lots of anxiety, so when I am calmer I can be a bit more active.

I use the oral capsules and so think they calm my system overall.
I miss days here and there and use them more when I need to be social, or make a trip to a dr's office.
Can you give a link to the capsules you buy? I found elixinol cbd oil on-line but not capsules.

@jesse's mom I am taking vitamin c small dose only. If I try taking a mega dose I start sneezing immediately. I am both vatha and kapha dosha dominant. I cant stand gooseberry(Indian amla), which is a good source of natural vitamin c.I am on Jarrow's Methyl b12 5000 mcg sublingual lozenges. If I forget to take them for a couple of days then I feel fatigued. Then I know immediately I have forgotten to take b12.:D

@raghav , sounds like you are on a good track! I am glad.
I actually asked my DO about using CBD oil. The answer for me is yes!
IF a 1:1 CBD THC were legal here I would get it in a hot minute!

Fullyactivated.com has cheap Cbd isolate for $20 per gram. I bought some and they sent a sample of the cream. I think the cream may help my joint pain a bit but not enough to reach for it when I'm in pain. The isolate, which I take sublingually with oil well... Maybe helps with sleep?

Really though at this point I can't be sure it has anymore effect than placebo. It doesn't seem to help my ME anxiety much as far as I can tell

https://www.thrivehealthms.com/ Try this is a small company and I love their grape mint hemp oil as well as the capsules. With the grape mint you can take a very small or booster dose.

I just looked at their site and there is a 25% of sale right now. YAY
Thanks @jesse's mom! I just saw your reply :thumbsup: I don't think I've ever seen CBD oil in capsule form before.

@Mary I had the straight oil, in the single dose from them and it tasted so bad to me! I had to wrap it up in cheese or something to get it down!

In the capsule form there is coconut oil in them. The capsule does have silica so if there is sensitivity to that, the oil would be better.
