I confess I've never used or made an oil extraction.

The tincture is quick and easy, takes about 30 mins to make, if done properly ensures a higher concentration of CBD and THC in the tincture than altenative mediums (oil/glycerine) and can keep for ages, like years :P

It's usually pretty potent.

Well, I used pre-made tablets, between 900mg to 1800mg a day, over the course of the day. They're usually sold as 300mg tablets, but you can find more concentrated ones, too. Could be worth a shot, but see the interactions and possible side effects. Felt a bit spacey at the higher doses.

Are you talking about CBD or St John’s Wort?

That is absolutely a drug. One of the most harmful and addictive ones in the world at that.

True. But not as deadly as Cannabis and also - not illegal.

I hope that's a joke! Cannabis is physically non-toxic.

Legal status has zero relationship with drug harm, sadly. Politicians typically aren't interested in scientific evidence when it comes to such things.

Prevents cancer and Alzheimer's disease. And diabetes, if you don't eat lots of sweets I guess. Improves lung capacity. Helps regulate body weight. Anti-inflammatory, helps with inflammatory disorders. Etc.

Certainly helped me, anyway. Not a solution by any means, but made it a bit more bearable. Also helps with nausea, I found.

30 minutes seems very quick. Can't they take hours to hit you?

Especially if you've eaten anything else recently I imagine, but either way.

No idea. My goal was to calm down and I guess it did what it did .

Caffeine for me also is my only weakness.

I’m actually thinking of reducing the amount of coffee i drink as my body seems to rely on the kick to get started. If I don’t have it I struggle to formulate my thoughts which effects my working day.

Last year I cut out sugary sweets and changed to low sugar dark chocolate and found it improved my overall health and well-being significantly.

Cutting down on obvious things like sugar and salt can improve your health and other symptoms such as anxiety. Sometimes it’s the simple changes we make that has the bigger impact.

3 cups of coffee and a hastily-chugged orange Lucozade.

I used to drink a lot of coffee and use other stimulants. I found that after quitting them, I ended up feeling more wakeful, alert and motivated every day than I previously had with the coffee and stuff.

That stuff is utterly terrible for you (and that's even after they reformulated it to avoid the sugar tax).

You've mentioned wanting to lose weight and even "not wanting to look horrifically fat any more". Drinking sugar water is not the way to go about it!

I had to walk to the shops twice this morning (got all the way there the first time before realising my debit card wasn't in my pocket) so I was incredibly thirsty.

Lucozade is one of my total weaknesses in terms of unhealthy shit I pump into my body. I just can't seem to stay away from the stuff.

It's designed that way. Like cigarettes. You need to find an alternative.

I like to just drink a lot of plain water myself (definitely deals with the thirst issue :D), and tea with some sweetener tablets and milk. Occasionally I'll have some no-added-sugar squash if I want a fruity flavour.

Try the tiny Robinsons no-added-sugar orange "Squash'd" squeezy bottles where you squeeze it into water and decide how strong you want it. It's delicious and very sweet (if you want it to be).
