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?

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

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.

    • 20 year break!  ... Let me guess, you got married? ...  You had kids? ... Or had a career change? ... Maybe did a little time in the pokey? 🤪 Anyway, welcome back to the game and welcome to the forum.  
    • Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!! Don't go away. Take a step back for a second. Listen, I know quite a few of the folks on this forum personally and they are all really good people, who love discussing golf. It seems you've become very upset because the title of your thread was changed. Think of it this way, when searching for this thread the rest of us need a way to recognize it. The moderator who changed it just tried to make it easier for the rest of us to find your thread.  Over the years I've had many thread titles changed. I've started other threads which have been merged with similar threads as well. This is a huge form. It's been around for 20 years. The moderators are just trying to keep thing tidy to help us all out.  Give us a chance. I think you'll find this really is a great place for golf talk. I'd suggest "The Numbers Thread", "The would you rather" thread, and the "General COVID-19" thread. Go in there and poke around. There's good stuff in there.  Remember a forum is a collection of personalities just like any forum that gets together in "real life". Some folks are better communicators than others. Some folks are wittier than others. (I'm looking at you @Double Mocha Man. I promise you if you hang around here you'll find stuff that will help your son's game. You'll find stuff that will challenge what you thought about some situations. You'll likely even make some friends. Besides if you go, who's going to teach me new words? I had to look up pedantic.... I had no idea what that meant. I was pretty sure it wasn't positive. But I went to Chicago Public Schools so my vocabulary isn't the strongest. 
    • I saw him hit his last home run in Milwaukee in 1976.  I had just graduated high school. A great talent.  RIP.
    • Sticking with the same stuff, left leg slider feel and maintaining the right ankle dorsiflexion. Hitting it well, taken a lot of the left miss out of play, misses recently have been pushes. Went to PING last week to get fit for the new woods, some changes from my last trip which I think is reflective of the swing trending in the right direction. Don't need to tweak the loft lower with the driver anymore and they recommend I hard-step my iron shafts. I like how stable the right foot is on the backswing and how the left foot is rolling to the outstep much less with the face-on.
