    Hi there,

    I currently have a blog which I write about CBD oil and Hemp oil. I am interested in writing something about CBD oil and Asperger's

    I want to know if anyone has taken CBD oil for their or their family members Aspergers. How this has helped? and what products they use and recommend?

    Interested to get some feedback!

    thanks.

    I tried Provacan CBD Oil 1200mg. Cost £69.99.

    This brand/strength came out top in the UK of the best CBD oils.

    The only thing it did was make me feel horribly sick. The smell and taste - absolutely disgusting and vomit inducing, exacerbated by sensory issues related to ASD.

    Oh, I'm also in excess of £70 (oil plus postage) out of pocket and left with a defunct bottle of CBD oil.

    No positives from me I'm afraid.

    I've also tried CBD oil and it had no effect on at all. Total waste of money.

    I use CBD isolate and mix it myself. It's a lot cheaper that way.

    I started taking it for anxiety, and it does OK for anxiety, but it does a surprising amount for sensory sensitivities. I wasn't expecting that result, but it really does make sensory stuff a lot easier to deal with.

    Hi, my partner is an aspie who just started using cbd oil 3 months ago. The brand is Zen CBD oil, 500mg. It has had very positive effects - let me just list a few...
    1. Does wonders for sensory overload. Finally able to go shopping in crowded areas and revisit places which have been associated with panic attacks and agoraphobia.
    2. Able to 'break the routine' and take various modes of public transport instead of being able to only take specific bus routes.
    3. Number of meltdowns decreased a LOT, used to be multiple times a week but now twice a month or so.
    4. Much more comfortable making small talk in public, and interacting with acquaintances at school (as a graduate student). She has described previously, feeling like humans are scary and unable to make eye contact at all, but after using the oil, she said she has never felt so 'light' interacting with people.
    5. Communication has improved greatly between us, and with her family. Able to understand a little more, where people are coming from and not see things as 'black and white' as before.
    6. Does wonders for anxiety too, and has helped a lot with manic depression and suicidal thoughts. She described that before, she used to feel like she was a black hole and any friends who got close would be 'polluted' by her dirtiness, but now that feeling has been somewhat lifted.

    Have tried not taking CBD oil for a week, and can confirm that these changes can be attributed to the oil.

    EDIT: My partner has Aspergers, agoraphobia, hypochondria and depression. Also has severe abandonment issues and insecurity, due to a very very trying and traumatic childhood.

    Hey, that's great to hear. I think I might suggest the option of mixing it yourself, perhaps gives more control over dosage etc.

    I once bought some CBD capsules to help with anxiety and sleep, but they had little or no affect - each capsule was 300mg, probably not enough to have any significant effect. Perhaps try taking a double dosage as see what happens.

    Yes, I think doses, on average, should be double at least.

    CBD oil shouldn’t show on a drug and alcohol test THC will. I find CBD great for anxiety and sleep.
