A couple years ago I was diagnosed with a panic disorder and bipolar 1. The bipolar might have always been there, but the panic disorder was so severe and so sudden that I was put on medical leave for six months. I tried several medications, all of which had either awful side effects or addiction dangers, and my medical bills were extremely expensive which only added to the stressors and triggered my symptoms. I lost my job when I wasn't able to get my symptoms under control with medication, and therefore lost my insurance and the medicine that was supposed to be helping, but obviously wasn't. My entire life fell apart. I lost friends who couldn't understand (good riddance), I couldn't find any motivation to do the simplest of tasks, I didn't want to do any of my normal hobbies, finding a new job was impossible, and I was on the verge of bankruptcy. My life was completely in pieces and I didn't know what to do. New medication was impossible because I couldn't afford to go to the doctor, my old medication couldn't be prescribed for the same reasons (not that I really wanted it, because it was awful), and I was having severe symptoms of both diagnoses every day. I was really at a loss and was on the verge of giving up and resigning my life to living on disability. My mom had a coworker that suggested Blackwell CBD oil and they gave me a sample bottle to try. I was very skeptical, but in the middle of a huge panic attack where my normal routine wasn't working (and I was out of my emergency medicine), I gave it a try. The difference was night and day. At first, I only took the oil when I was really symptomatic, and it helped every time, but now I take about a quarter of a dropper every day and on days when I'm either 'off' or I can tell I'll be trending toward mania or depression, or I know I'll be more prone to panic attacks, I take a half or full depending on severity for a couple of days and it regulates everything so these diagnoses are actually something I can live with instead of suffer through. Now I can actually function, hold down a job, and pick up the literal and emotional pieces of what made my life completely fall apart a few years ago. Thank you is a complete understatement of how much I appreciate this product. It might sound dramatic to say that a little bottle of oil gave me a new start, but it did, and I couldn't be more grateful. Thank you so much.
I mainly got this to see if it would help with my back pain from degenerative disc. I am not sure if it is helping or not. I think I need more time to really rate it.
I love this CBD! It works great when I cant settle down after work to go to sleep. It works to help me fall asleep and not toss & turn. I get a really relaxing feeling and off to slumberland I go. I love the orange flavor also.
Blackwell’s 1500 mg tincture has been an invaluable part of my daily regimen. It is effective in controlling chronic pain, stiffness, and there’s a general calming effect as well—stress just isn’t quite as stressful. As an added bonus, it has improved gastric motility and lessened the impact of gastroparesis. I’ve been pleased with the consistency of the tincture as far as potency, but flavoring has been very inconsistent. I’ve had one bottle of the 500 mg orange tincture and then 3 bottles of the 1500 mg orange tincture. The 500 mg bottle had s strong, pleasant orange flavor. The first 1500 mg bottle had a less strong, but adequate orange flavor. The second 1500 mg bottle had s very faint orange flavor. The third 1500 mg bottle (which I just recently received) has no orange flavor whatsoever. Yuck! I’m using it because I needed it and couldn’t wait on another. Hoping you can achieve a more consistent orange flavor.
I’m in love with this tincture! It helps my anxiety quite a bit. It even helps my migraines.
