CBD Oil For Trichotillomania? Really?
I recently made the choice to purchase some full-spectrum cannabidioil (CBD) in an effort to reduce the things that trigger my trichotillomania.
Anxiety, depression and insomnia are all big triggers for me and CBD has been known to improve them all.
I’ve been reading a lot about the benefits of Cannabidoil for mental health and I can’t help but want to try it.
There’s a lot of misconceptions about CBD oil because it is derived from hemp (marijuana) but it doesn’t get you high, it only removes anxiousness.
Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, but the compounds have different effects.
The THC is the part of the plant that gives the psychoactive effects, but that’s not what CBD does…
Don’t worry, I’m not running off to a life of drugs…CBD is totally legal!
That is the main reason I wanted to try it.
I Can’t Take Depression and Anxiety Medications
In the past, I have been on pharmaceutical drugs for anxiety and depression and they made everything worse, not to mention it was hell trying to get off of them. 😫
They turned me into a night sweating zombie mom that couldn’t focus anymore.
….but I would be lying if I said I didn’t still want some sort of relief, but natural of course.
I do what I can to keep my anxiety and depressive thoughts to a minimum but it would be nice to try CBD oil and see if it can’t help me a bit more.
I also suffer from really bad insomnia which only triggers the anxiety I experience.
I’ve made changes to my lifestyle, diet and environment to help me manage my trichotillomania but the truth is, I’m not always happy, I still get very anxious.
I’ve been doing A LOT of research about it and I definitely think CBD Oil can help me in many areas that trigger my trichotillomania.
Don’t Buy CBD Oil From Just Anywhere!
For the last two weeks I have been checking out different suppliers of CBD oil because the one thing I’ve read is that you don’t want to just buy it from anywhere.
The hemp oil you buy at the store isn’t going to cut it if you want the right stuff.
I purchased it last Sunday night and I paid by check to get 5% discount, but what I didn’t’ realize is that would take longer to ship. 😢
Do yourself a favor when you buy it – pay by credit/debit card to get it faster, screw the 5%!
Just waiting the few extra days is giving me anxiety. 🤦
I was only saving like $3 bucks anyway because it doesn’t cost THAT much.
How Much CBD Oil For Trichotillomania?
I purchased the 500 mg dosage, natural flavor, because I really don’t know how it’s going to affect me.
There’s also a 750mg bottle for $20 more but I am starting at the lower dosage and we’ll see how that goes.
My husband is going to be trying too because he has chronic back pain and it works as a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory as well as being good for mental health issues like anxiety, depression and PSTD.
My CBD Oil Shipped Out Today!
I will probably get it by Monday I’m guessing because it’s only coming from Nevada.
Is it weird that I have anxiety over this?
I’m totally anxious to try it but in a good way.
I really believe this is a Godsend.
I would give my right arm for a good night’s sleep and thought of being anxiety free, well that is just a dream come true, seriously.
CBD Oil Health Benefits
Besides my own triggers, there are a ton of benefits to taking cannbidoil:
- It provides natural pain management and has anti-inflammatory properties.
- It has been used as intervention for addictive behaviors and withdrawals.
- It’s used for epilepsy and mental health disorders.
- It improves brain and liver function.
- It promotes better sleep.
The list goes on and on.
It’s like apple cider vinegar, there are so many beneficial health uses for it.
Can You Tell I’m Excited To Try It!
That’s why I wanted to make sure I was getting quality CBD, not some snake oil that people try to sell you.
I want to make sure that I get the real thing so it really works!
👉 Stay tuned, I will keep you updated as time goes on as to how much it helps, what dosage I’m taking and all that jazz.
I’m going to have to ease into the use of it.
I’ve read that there’s a detoxification process that happens so I have to start off slow and DRINK A LOT OF WATER.
As always, this guinea pig will keep you posted!
