Cannabidiol: cannabis oil without the psychoactive THC. A lot has been said about the potential health benefits of it – and a lot has been said about the potential negatives too. It's quite controversial. Here in the UK it's completely legal, but the legality is different all over the world, so make sure you check before you try to get some if you decide you'd like to try it.

This isn't a sales pitch whatsoever – I'm not a medical professional, so this is just a personal choice of mine to try it. Read up on it beforehand if you do!

Speaking of which, you can find out more about it here:

There is now a charity for Depersonalisation. Based in the UK but operating globally, Unreal aims to support people with lived experience of the condition, offer peer support events, lobby the UK government, raise awareness of the condition within both society & medical circles, etc. I'm a board member, along with notable figures within the world of DP such as Jane Charlton & Dr Elaine Hunter, and with Professor Anthony David & singer-songwriter Dodie as our ambassadors. Please find out more about the charity & what we offer here: www.unrealuk.org

**Disclaimer** I am not a trained professional in any way. This channel is comprised largely of my own personal opinions & experiences as a DPD sufferer. I do lots of research about DPD and have spoken to many professionals – I endeavour to include their knowledge within my videos, but it's inevitable that at some point I may get medical facts slightly wrong. Please don't use the content of this channel for your own self-diagnosis…use it to learn about Depersonalisation, engage in discussion with others and – if appropriate – assist you in gathering information to then discuss with your doctor or mental health professional.

  1. I've been taking CBD oil for just over a week now, I love the taste xD
    It takes a while for the endocannabinoid system to wake up and for you to get the benefits I understand, so you should really take it for longer than a month buddy (:

    I'm glad to see you finally got seen to at Maudsley. You were actually the person who helped me out with advice regarding getting help there. I'm like number #30 or something on the waiting list at the moment.

    How did you get on? Has all the therapy finished now? Would be great to hear how it went.

    And of course, I'm loving the guitars! The Dark red LP looks awesome, is that a Gibson?

  2. Hey, i actually found a form of cbd that now does help me significantly! Its the third cbd oil i tried and the first that helps at all. Theres massive differences in quality and concentration. For this one 5 drops equal about 31mg of cbd

  3. I'm trying CBD oil today for chronic pain, and I also have DPDR (diagnosed last October). So far it helps with the joint pain, but I do feel more disconnected from the things around me. But I don't really feel bothered by it? Like, I'm not panicking about my dreamlike state or anything like that, whereas usually it's something that I'm at least a little freaked out by most of the time. I'm definitely going to give those articles a read. Also I bought mine from a coffee shop and the guy said it's good to put it in a drink, to help with taste.

    I posted a video on my channel recently (latest upload) about the different causes of DPD and questions regarding why it's diagnosed differently here than it is potentially in other places (I'm American). I feel like there's so much more we need to learn about this disorder.

    Thank you for this video and for raising awareness!

  4. interesting, good luck that it helps you. Sorry, but I had to laugh when you were laughing about this unexpected terrible taste. 😉 And cool, I saw just minutes ago, you wrote the first question at mentour today, nice. And always take your time with this channel, if you don't release a video for more than one month, that's absolutely no problem, youtube should always stay a nice thing for the youtuber and not something, that causes pressure that one should "deliver" something. Cheers

  5. Nice to see you back! Ive tried cbd several times at high dosages and quality, but for some reason i didnt notice anything at all. The same with when i smoked weed several years back so dunno, perhaps im missing some receptors or smth^^ but i know many people with dpdr who benefit greatly from it. I hope it will help you a bit!
