Is there anywhere I can find proper easy to understand information? There's tons of stuff on line but I can't make much sense of it.
Anecdotally, from people I know, I think it might help with a very painful condition I have. It will get better on it's own eventually (18 mths - 2 yrs) I'm not relying on the oil as a cure, I'd just like some relief from the pain meantime . I have been told it's helped others with the same condition.
But I can't even work out what to buy or where from.
The the short answer is you don't. But I found the Facebook group gave me some really good pointers. The response to different strains and strengths is very person specific so there might be some trial and error involved.
Its not quite that straightforward but im no expert. I think its more about starting with something on a low dose eg 1 drop 3 times a day and staying on that for sometime..its not something that you get immediate results from necessarily. I started on purple paste which for a lot of people can be good for pain and sleep and just tried 1 tiny rice grain sized bit for a while but ive since gone on to white oil as my main issue im wanting to address is insomnia. Cbd bros do offer samples which I used to get started.
I use blue in the day and purple before I go to bed. I ran out of purple and my sleep got worse so it might be doing something. Blue is meant to be good for energy. I do occasionally wonder if I've just fallen for snake oil though, I think that's why I can't justify trying white.
