Hi Jurgen,

I don't know them since I'm in Canada and I don't know how many mg of actual CBD would be in that. Is it 60mg of CBD then? You will need to try different kinds and different doses, and for much longer than one capsule one time if you really want to know if it will work for you. In addition it sometimes takes a few weeks or longer to work and some kinds don't work for some. So you'll have to try things out before you know for sure.

Isolate should always be 99% or higher, so like 99.8% or something like that. Full spectrum will usually be 70-90% CBD and the rest will be other cannabinoids and terpenes. I don't know if they ship to your European country specifically, but I know Fully Activated CBD out of Colorado ships all around the world and to Europe. You might try them. They have full spectrum and isolate, all lab tested and good.

Takes care!

One thing to note, in California CBD sourced from hemp is either illegal or in a weird zone right now precisely because of MJ legalization. Though many people in states where all cannabis is banned do just fine ordering online from one of the places I mentioned. The one thing you likely can't get from MJ oil is CBD isolate, but you can likely get a 20:1 CBD to THC oil that is like a full spectrum hemp based oil with very low amounts of THC.
Thanks so much, I had forgotten that I had posted in this thread. My renewed interest in CBD brought me back here.

Well I stopped by a CBD + vape shop today while I was down in the city. The young man behind the counter was very informative about the Cannibals products and the maze of laws governing their sale in California. I bought a 30ml bottle of 600mg strength,full-spectrum, CO2 extracted. The products that contain THC are available at a "dispensary' that is licensed by the state, to the tune of about 1/2 million $$.

Anyway, I bought this CBD oil with the hope of reducing pain and anxiety.

I dosed with about 1/3 of an eyedropper, I believe that in fact there was a noticeable quieting of my busy, anxious limerent mind.

The muscle pain/stiffness that's usually present in my upper back seemed to be less than is typical.

Sorry for the delay but I'm only seeing this now. I really don't know the European market. You can try checking Reddit. There is r/CBD but also CBD subreddits dedicated to many countries including Canada and the UK.

I'm in Canada and had to order from the US for a while until I found a good Canadian source. Only a few companies shipped to Canada and maybe some ship to you where you are in Europe. I know there is an Austrian company that ships hemp flower with low THC. You can ask on r/CBD. I think Fully Activated in the US ships to most countries around the world so they're a safe bet. I'd email them. Other than that try emailing some other companies in the US with good 3rd party lab tests, like Lazarus and Extra Labs. My guess is Fully Activated will ship to where you are but you can ask them with an email. I hope this helps.

Sorry I've been away for too long. I'm just noticing new comments on this thread. I'm really glad CBD is helping you. Is it still after some time? I find regular and consistent use helps overall though some find taking a does when they need it is best. But I prefer the former for chronic conditions like mine.

I know the situation with CBD from hemp is less than ideal in California. You can always order online from a host of reputable vendors like Fully Activated, Bluebird, Lazarus and the like. It's important to make sure you see 3rd party lab tests for potency and residual solvents. Tests for heavy metals, pesticides and other things are nice too.

Hi George,

Hemp oil is not the same as CBD oil. They both come from the same plant (hemp) but from different parts of it. Hemp oil will have next to no CBD oil and Amazon does not sell any CBD oil so avoid using Amazon. Try contacting Fully Activated in Colorado to see if they can and do ship to Costa Rica. Let me know how it goes and hopefully you can get what you want. Isolate and full spectrum are both worth trying.

Hello. If you are on Facebook there are a number of CBD support groups. They have dosing protocols to introduce the body to CBD. I believe they start with a single drop under the tongue.

I live in AZ and I have a medical pot card. I can easily take a dropperful of CBD with THC and not feel any effects but a light calm.

I have found CBD to help with anxiety. To me, it feels like a strong drink. It doesn't remove the pain for me. I don't disbelieve those who claim that it does, but expectations are a big part of our response to CBD.
