I just got a 2 oz. bottle of the 1500mg hemp extract (CBD but water soluble, not oil) from Urbal Activ. Today was my first day with three drops under the tongue in the morning and before bedtime.

Anyone else doing a CBD regimen or anything? What do you think?

I keep thinking about trying it - the ads from the NLU guys. Would be interested in hearing how effective it is.

My wife was rear ended last November. She has been going to a chiro which was helping, but CBD gives her relief especially now that the chiro is closed. It is also giving her some relief from hot flashes brought on by her radical hysterectomy last April. As for me, I have to use THC free since my company actively has drug screening mandated by the Dept. of Transportation. My left thumb was locking up and causing me a lot of pain. I put some on the area and rubbed it in, and it felt much better. This was in a stick form that goes on like deodorant.

I'm a believer.

My chiropractor suggested that I try it for chronic lower back pain.

I’ve been using it daily for over a month now.  Unfortunately, I haven’t noticed any benefit.

CBD is young in research so nothing is definitive on its benefits. I have not tried the tincture drops yet, but I have a feeling I wouldn’t notice anything if I try. I wonder if there’s some amount of placebo effect surrounding it. If it works for people great, but count me as skeptical (for pain and anxiety relief) until more comes out.

I’ll let you know in a week or so. I’m not expecting much.

I've been meaning to look into it. I would probably use it more to chill out before bedtime. I am not a fan of Melatonin. I took it once and it felt like I was in a fog for 12 hours after I woke up.

I tried some CBD oil under the tongue to help with sleep.  I upped the dosage to 1/2 dropper and still didn't notice much of a difference.  I can neither confirm nor deny it's effectiveness.

I tried CBD gum during a few rounds for relaxation/anti-anxiety (competitive rounds, which are very rare for me). Didn’t really notice all that much difference in nervy moments like a 5 foot putt for double bogey, and I played terrible in spite of the gum, but I like chewing nicotine gum when I golf so the chewing was at least cathartic.

I’ve also tried CBD oil drops in varying strengths for stress reduction/sleep improvement and maybe there was some effect, maybe not, but not enough to warrant continued use due to high cost.

Me, too. Tried it, but couldn't tell any difference.

That's the main thing I've noticed about the stuff. It's expensive! I thought about buying some of the cream to use on my knees and shoulders before and after golf. Hopefully if competition increases prices will come down. Plus some brands will become well established as effective.

I’ve tried it as I have a hard time getting to sleep at times and felt helpful. Nowhere near as the real stuff that I would occasional enjoy in my college days, but helpful. 
 

I don’t believe it’s a placebo thing. I think it’s like any other meds we prescribe, some people do great on some, others don’t. Some people love Advil, others Aleve, etc.

I’ve used it before without the thc and it has worked. I’ve used it on my knees and my back. There are a lot of brands out there and I question a lot of them and believe there is a ton of inferior products out there. You really have to research and find the right strength for you.

I've got type II and have recently started have a hard time getting glucose below 200. Looking online for ways to lower it CBD came up. The ads call it a miracle cure, the research says hold on. I think for 60 bucks I'll give it a shot.

Are you getting something reputable for $60?

There are several things people don't know when they buy CBD oil. Full spectrum hemp oil is probably the best you can buy because it also has other CB oils that support each other, whereas most CBD oil sold is not full spectrum. People just see CBD on the label and think it is all the same. People don't realize that there are CBC, CBG, and CBN oils as well in full spectrum CBD products. These other oils support CBD oil and make it more effective in it's work.

We have a small store in town. I know the owner so hopefully she will not steer me wrong. I'm not sure about THC content. I don't have to worry about passing a drug test, but not sure if i want to go with it or w/o. So more reading...

In unrelated news, I have played with/against the owner of the local medical marijuana dispensary the last 3 weeks of league play.

He really sucks at golf, but I have played well when in the same group.

But he is a doctor with a military pension and a pot business, so he really wins.

    • Day 6: I spent an hour on the range today focusing on nothing other than my main piece of getting to the top properly. The result was the best contact I have made in ages. I am feeling really good about my progress and am going to stay with it this time. Small incremental improvements make a huge difference and I need to remember that.    This place has been so helpful to me. Truly the best site and members anywhere on the Internet. 
    • 2 Birdies today, #10 was a repeat but #13 was a new one.    5 holes to go
    • Excellent feedback as always @Grizvok. I have a bad habit of trying to skip ahead before I have mastered something.  I took my work out to the range today and hit every club in the bag with the best contact I have made in a LONG time. It felt great to see my swing back. I’m still struggling with low ball flight on my low irons and hybrid/wood but that’s a battle for another day. 
    • If only there were decades of tournament data that could provide statistical clarity to the question. 
    • I have had lessons in the past. In addition to this ive read countless ideas on the swing by so many people and watched gold constantly. When i was good at golf, i had a swing where i attacked the ball very much from the inside and played with a strong draw. My grip was odd...the left hand pretty neutral but the right hand strong. The swing was very short and had a very fast tempo, not dissimilar to someone like Nicholas Thompson off the PGA tour. I got down to a 2 handicap at lowest, and usually a low 3 handicapper hovering around 2.5, 2.6 index. I wanted to get better as i never felt i hit the ball that well, so i sought out lessons and i saw the trackman numbers and such. We worked on getting the grip better, actually aligning to the target better (whereas before i would just kind of walk up to the ball, shuffle around a bit till i felt it was ok and hit), i started really focusing on things that i still think are good like alignment, routine etc. And the swing path became less inside out. For a while i played great, then i started getting steeper and steeper and hitting disgusting pull slices all day. THEN, it started getting to the point where, my mind wouldnt let me take the club away. I would do all kinds of crazy stuff like the club would bounce up and down and my takeaway totally frozen even though pros recommended trigger moves etc. Then because the game wasnt enjoyable because of the yipping, id start taking time off because i didnt want to go through with all of this and then, i started losing my flexibility, getting bigger etc. Now I just dont want to go because the only emotions i ever feel are frustration, resentment, annoyance, wanting it to be over after 10 mins and feeling like theres 4 more hours left etc. If you could take me back to a time where i did not yip, i would play the game again and absolutely love it, but its never ever coming back. Ive tried everything. It HURTS. Ive never been any good at ANYTHING else in my life. I put everything into golf from the age of 12 up to about 25. The last 10 years has just been too much for me. i just cant take it
