    I dunno if anyone else tried it but its fun. I have a bud called CBD Therapy that is 1% THC and 10% CBD, and its perfect for light users who want to vape more often without getting stoned.

    I'm not sure what all that cbd is doing for me, but its very relaxing, in the morning, during the day and before bed. I think someone once said that cbd is best in small frequent doses.

    CBD is calming on it's own, and even better with some THC as you see. As for what it's doing for you, you are fortifying your endocannabinoid system. It is helping with inflammation, mood. I like to see it as a general wellbeing feeling.

    I took a 45 day THC break as I was cleaning up for a job interview that never actually happened, and was on CBD the entire time. I vaporized it, but mostly I was interested in ingesting it for longer effects. I like it though here lately I've not been consuming as much CBD. I've been trying to understand if there is really a big difference in effects between CBD+THC vs THC alone, ongoing bioessay.

    I read that cbd reduces the amount electrical signal in your brain, thats why it helps with seizures. I find cbd along with thc makes a more tamed thc experience: less anxiety at the beginning of the high, which is preferable.

    I hope the anti-inflammation properties are strong.

    On their own I dont think they are strong enough as I suffer from some conditions that are exasperated by inflammation. For example, in order for me to get my acid reflux under control, CBD alone wasn't cutting it, I have to also take turmeric, and those two anti-inflammatories combined seem to do the trick. I take a number of anti-inflammatories, trying to live through this life as long as I can.

    Seeing how disproportionate the THC:CBD ratios are in some oils, I've always wondered how it would feel if I were to supplement my dabs with a little CBD, purely for the sake of bolstering the entourage effect. I feel like supplementary CBD would synergize well with low temp vaping, like a means of further refining the already smooth high you get at low temps. Anyone have experience with this? Furthermore, have you titrated your doses to find the optimal ratio?

    I've done this method for well over a year. I generally just eyeball my CBD isolate dose just like I do my THC dose, but I can say when making edibles (where I weigh the drug components for accuracy), the 1:1 ratio tends to work best for me, though I have had good results with 1:3 as well.

    I make my own concentrate from medicinal CBD buds and ingest the concentrate (diluted with edible oil) under my tongue 3 times a day. Helps with my chronic inflammations, keeps me a bit calmer during stressful times and works well in balancing the THC that I consume in parallel. I tried to vape the buds, but did not like the taste. I am probably spoiled by all the nice THC-dominant strains that I have tasted.

    I find cbd bud has a slight taste of fish, I noticed that with VCDC and CBD Therapy a little too. I don't mind it really.

    What temp do you guys reccommend? I remember reading that higher is better for CBD, about 440F was optimal. My mighty only goes to 410F, so I use that. Seems to work well enough.

    I picked up a tonne of high cbd low thc buds when I stocked up a while back and hate them. They don't really do anything for me so I don't want to add the extra stress of vaping on my lungs for nothing, even though they are actually quite tasty. Tossed them all together in 2 big jars, mixed with some other outdoor buds that I don't care for and trying to find a home for them. I LOVED that 99.9% cbd isolate crystal powder though, and can see myself topping bowls with it since it vapes like crazy and tastes awesome.

    Maybe I can find a way to turn the 2oz I have into concentrate as i'd be much more likely to dab it than vape it in flower.

    i have been using high cbd strains since 2014 when they first became knowingly available to me through lab tested canadian producers iv tried all kinds . at first i thought they were great , then thought maybe they were giving me more anxiety then the thc strains . i was using both high thc and high cbd strains . i also tried mixing the two together . also tried cbd oil from tweed LP with .52 percent thc and 13 percent cbd . one time it gave me serious anxity , and another time seemed to calm me not sure what is up with that .

    anyway i too find almost all have a not good taste , a fish kinda taste says it well . the only strain that i found that was one to one thc to cbd that actully tasted and smelt awesome was cbd warlock by tilray around 10 % cbd and 10 % thc . this stuff smelt like grape . its got to be one of the best smelling strains i had thc or cbd .

    im still on the fence over all the cbd hype i read . not sure if i really believe what i have read about it with regard to taming thc and anti anxity and all that . it seems for me to some times have those effects and sometimes the opposite .

    I have a question for those here using CBD isolate. Is the product you are using using legal/medical marijuana-derived, or hemp-derived (50 state legal)?

    Hemp derived, 50 state legal.

    If you look into it everything seems to suggest CBD is CBD, the source makes no difference.

    Is it possible to vape cbd crystal powder on its own? Got some but don`t know which would be the best way to consume. And I`m afraid of waisting them, they are so f*** expensive :(

    It sure is! What vapes do you own? I use my supreme v3 and works like a dream...I treat it like a convection dab, and use higher temps.

    LOVE this stuff!

    THC for insomnia, not CBD....CBD is actually wake inducing.

    Ownig the Volcano, Air, Vapman and Vapcap. Don`t know the supreme. How do you keep the crystals in the chamber? It`s such a fine powder, won`t it be blown in the balloon in case of the volcano or inhaled in case of any of my other vapes?

    I like to put the isolate powder on a bed of organic unbleached cotton and vape it in the bowl of my vapcap. I find it works better for me than my log vapes, though that is possible as well. I find it actually works really nicely dusted on an herb bowl in any one of my vapes.

    CBD isolate can also just be eaten outright since it's already active. Thats how my wife takes it for headaches.

    For insomnia, CBN is the best out of the three main canabinoids of our beloved weed (THC, CBD, and CBN). CBN is what results from degraded THC, which occurs as it is left exposed to the air and oxygenizes. (For the growers out there, that's where your amber trichomes come from.) No doubt that THC does help with insomnia to some extent by relaxing the mind, but it's the sleep-inducing properties of CBN that is the kicker. I wish I could purchase CBN capsules (or the like) the way you can purchase CBD.

    Do you use concentrates? Regular THC dabs are fantastic when dipped in CBD crystals.

    You can also simply add it to the top of a bowl, just like hash.

    Or you can melt something with lots of saturated fat and add the crystals, consume, or even turn that mixture into homemade CBD gelcaps.

    Basically, you can use pretty much however ya use weed/hash/oil etc.

    I've read this is one of the less effective methods due to a large % being somehow destroyed/damaged/something by stomach acids? There are a few company's that offer gelcaps I'd like to try but hate to loose half the strength of each pill to my metabolism, if that's going to be the case?

    I wasn't sold until about a week in. I'm fully aware it could be placebo, but I believe theres some credence to the idea you need the canabanoids to build up a bit before you begin to really feel effects. This is the case with many other types of medication.

    Interesting. Id like to read up on that. I've been using cbd edibles for years, it always seems to work unless like you say some placebo effect. I do get the tell tale signs, thc high lasting longer, but being less climactic, heightened wellbeing, improved pain relief.

    I have a buddy that claims he only smokes cbd. I don’t know how reliable. But he raves by it. I wouldn’t mind going on high cbd strains not to get the stoned effect.

    I actually found a strain called Charlotte's Web thats way better than the one I mentioned before. Its got 15%cbd and 0.3%thc, but I think there's more thc cuz it gets u pretty high. Or it might be just really relaxing. Either way its my go to strain currently.

    Thanks for the advice, but sadly we`re living in the Dark Ages here. Concentrates are impossible to obtain and I`m not allowed to consume THC anyway atm. That's why I`m trying to use CBD for my anxiety during the day and insomnia/wired thoughts at night. I think I`ll try the cotton method :)
