I tried 2 different "prescription" brands for several months each (can get Dr. scripts in Canada to order through regulated "Medical Cannabis" providers - and anxiety and depression do qualify for scripts). Both contained terpenes which they detailed, although terpene profile differed between the 2 brands. Also both contained a tiny fraction of THC which I'm guessing is likely just a function of the plants they use and the processing, can't 100% guarantee no THC. But they keep the terpenes in.

I found no difference despite the differing terpene profile. At first I thought it was helping with anxiety, but that soon faded (possible placebo effect? Although I'm not usually susceptible to that...). Then it seemed to make me tired, especially as I increased dose as instructed. Then I started wondering if it was interacting with other meds - both CBD and THC are metabolized by same enzymes as many other meds.

Instructions were to keep titrating up until desired effect. But that got too expensive.

The Cannabis Doctors (and they are real MDs) I consulted thought cannabis was essentially a wonder drug. They were very hyped on it.

I haven't researched recently, but when I did a while ago, dosages used in the small amount of published research at that time were so high the cost would be prohibitive.

Anyone else had any recent experiences with CBD being helpful in any way?
