A few days ago I stopped taking everything, except for a research trial that I am enrolled in with an experimental compound. This is after 5 years of daily edible cannabis oil, similar to RSO, in doses from 100mg at first, increasing to 1/2 to 1 gram the last couple years. It has helped with the deficits, problems that remained after brain surgery. I have not had a recurrence of the tumor that was removed and then the site treated with 30 radiation treatments. I cannot say that the cannabis oil has kept it from growing back, but for sure it has helped with recovery. I stopped taking it to see if there were any physical or mental things going on, like bad side effects. After stopping it has been hard to sleep, just a series of cat naps because of how much my body aches, mainly old injuries, spinal and broken bones. (raced bikes) A few days have gone by and I am not able to report any withdrawal symptoms and mentally I feel the same. There is clearly some muscle relaxant properties with the CBD oil as my spasticity has returned after 5 years, muscle spasms related to neuro issues post surgery.
Not sure, but will probably take a CBD capsule tomorrow morning and see if I can get the same amount of work done as today. I've been using a bong quite a bit this year and have been worried that maybe overdoing it, but as long as it doesn't interfere with my life, it can remain a part of it. Just not today as I go on with this test. Toking a big bong rip and then tackling a job like mowing has been nice, but today I noticed that I did a better job than usual without the bong. next week I'll try it with the bong and compare, but expect that it will take longer and not be as nice.
My big concern is that a person who is nuts usually doesn't know. I have met a few people with mental health issues who are heavy, long term cannabis users and witnessed a couple psychotic episodes that I though could have been the result of too much for too long, but these individuals have such severe issues that the cannabis they smoke may actually be tempering their demons. Anyway, after a brief cessation I'll restart the daily oil, starting with 200mg CBD in the AM and 100-200mg of THC oil at night.
The good news is that I did not have any serious negative reaction to stopping. YMMV
