Good CBD For Anxiety and Sleep
September 30, 2018 10:05 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for a good CBD as an alternative to Xanax and marijuana. Ideally something that won't show up on a drug test (low or no THC). Recommendations?

I use CBD tincture from Hemp-Direct for anxiety. Never used it for sleep, but I can't imagine it wouldn't help. They just started shipping a CBD isolate tincture that they claim is 100% free of THC. They provide lab test results for every batch.

Lazarus Naturals is well respected and THC free.

I've had great experiences with Green Mountain.

bunji, do you recommend the pill, oil or edible salve? Green Mountain sells all three.

(Sorry to thread jack.)

OnTheLastCastle -- of course this is strictly a layman's advice, but with the sublingual oil, the dose can be customized and absorbed quickly and without sacrificing a percentage of the active ingredient to stomach acid. Also, the chocolate-mint flavor is lovely :)

Capsules are good for people who hope to address GI issues or don't like the taste. I haven't tried the salve.

Also, at least in my observation, CBD is more of a cumulative effect than a quick fix. Hope this helps!

There was just a similar anonymous AskMe. Some of those answers may be helpful.
