Ive been taking CBD as a sleep aid and also as "anti-anxiety" medication when im travelling and wont be smokin for a while. Not that i get bad anxiety, just usually have some sort of negative mental state a few days into no smoke - also have trouble sleeping a few days into no smoke.
I've noticed that the Vitamin shops that sell CBD in NYC only have 5, 10, 15 mg options and they are all mixed in with some sort proprietary supplement to "help" you sleep/relax even better. ugh. There is also a CBD store in soho called The 420 that looks all sleek and white inside like a gallery (they call it The Sephora of CBD). That place had some CBD buds that seemed way overpriced so I didnt even experiment. That place at least had tinctures and SOME higher potency stuff like 50mg Capsules - but it all felt very "curated" in that they only had what was available (like if you wanted a higher or lower potency tincture, too bad). just look at it! The store is kinda bare bones - I have a hunch they are placeholding until weed gets legalized recreational in NY????
I really like Lazarus Naturals and I have been ordering from them for a while. They have a great range for each of their products. for me 25mg is the sweet spot. 50mg is good but pushing it for me. leaves me a lil sleepy and out of it. but strong coffee will usually push me thru that.
