A diary of my experience using Cedar Creek’s Full Spectrum Natural Flavour 1000mg Tincture. My daily dose varied and was based on the desired effects. My lifestyle entails spending the majority of my time at a desk, on a PC, or drawing on my Wacom. I generally experience wrist as well as lower backache, and see a chiropractor once a month; Due to Covid-19 circumstances, I did not see her throughout my trial with cannabis extract supplementation. I also suffer from anxiety and depression.

I have decided to take a daily dose of 25mg or 0.75ml of the tincture. As I have heard that the first and higher dose(s) can make one tired, I have decided to take 0.5ml (half a pipette) in the morning, and 0.25ml in the evening. This will be my daily dose regime. Has a gentle, pure taste.
I have taken my daily dose, 0.5ml in the morning, and 0.25ml at 10 pm. The oil tends to dry my throat, and I require something to drink after or I cough.
Today I woke up at 10 am and took my morning dose. I have noticed that my wrists hurt less, even though I have been gaming a lot more than usual. I play Apex Legends, an online multiplayer which has daily challenges that I like to complete, so I have been gaming till 3 am – bear in mind I am usually in bed by 10 pm. My evening dose was 0.5ml instead of 0.25ml because I feel it will offset any pain or inflammation that might occur with the increased strain of gaming. This totals 33.33mg of full-spectrum hemp extract for the day.
I went to bed at 3 am and woke up at midnight. I took my usual morning dose of 0.5ml. I did freelance work today for 4 hours and found that initially my wrist and lower back were sore, but gradually the pain subsided. I also feel less stressed than usual. I was also less prone to negative thoughts. I took an evening dose of 0.5ml, totaling a daily dose of 33.33mg.
Today I took 0.5ml in the morning and 0.5ml before bed. I went to bed at 1 am. I have noticed that I feel less pain in my wrists and lower back.
Today I woke up at midnight, and I feel I have been oversleeping. Thus, I have decided to lower the dosage. I took 0.25ml as my morning dose and 0.25ml as my evening dose. This is a total dose of 16.66mg hemp extract. I have also taken Aleve today, to alleviate menstrual cramps.
Today I woke up at 1 pm, which I felt was too late for a morning dose so I skipped it. I did some freelance work today and went to bed at 1:30 am, without taking any of the tinctures - as I was not on schedule today.
Today I woke up sometime around 10 am and took 0.25ml in the morning only, as I have decided to take less to sleep shorter periods. I am also taking Aleve for menstrual cramps. I have been playing less Apex, and went to bed at 1:30 am.
I woke up around 9 am today. However, I forgot to take my doses today. I have noticed that with regards to menstruation, my mood has been better than usual. Generally, I usually experience stress on a level of 6/10. However, I feel that now it is 3/10.
It is 4 pm, and I have not taken my dose yet. I have been doing freelance work, which required painting (with a computer mouse, as it is digital paintings) and this has made my hand sore. I rate this pain a 3/10. I was also irritated with my sister who was requesting that multiple small changes be made to some visual content that she had required for work. I am taking a 0.5ml dose from the tincture now.
It is now 1 am; I have been gaming and am taking a 0.5ml dose (to make up for the doses that I have previously missed) before going to bed.
Today I took a morning dose of 0.5ml and an evening dose of 0.5ml. I feel good, a little tired though (I woke up at 10:30 am).
Today I took a morning dose of 0.5ml and an evening dose of 0.5ml. I feel good, again, a little tired though.

Today I took a morning dose of 0.5ml and an evening dose of 0.5ml. I feel good, still a little tired though.
Today I took a morning dose of 0.5ml and an evening dose of 0.5ml. I feel good, still a little tired though. It seems that this effect is not one of acclimation but rather a result of the dose being too high for me. I will reduce my daily dose to 25mg instead of 33.33mg.
Today I took a morning dose of 0.5ml and an evening dose of 0.25ml. I can do more at the computer without pain. I also feel that I am less stressed.
Today I took a morning dose of 0.5ml and an evening dose of 0.25ml. I feel less tired, less stressed, and overall my mood is better. I was drawing for an hour and found that my wrist was rather sore, 4/10. However, I don’t feel any back pain.
I took my daily doses today. I think this dose is ideal as I am no longer experiencing the tired feeling, and I am still reaping the benefits that CBD has to offer. I am still feeling less stressed. I felt a bit of pain today, but this could be a result of having not seen my chiropractor for 2 months.
In retrospect, I have noticed that I used to snack more. It seems I have experienced a gradual regulation of my appetite. I do also feel that it has helped a little with my menstrual cramps.

I have been sitting with a hot water bottle on my lower back when I draw on the PC, as I felt a bit stiff, and was experiencing discomfort (a pain level of 2-3/10). Generally, the pain levels that I experience depend on the activity and on the position that I sit in.

I have done an hour of exercise for the day and am feeling slight pain or discomfort, in the areas I have overexerted – not my usual pain points.

After a while of sitting at the PC, I am experiencing a lower backache of 3/10, and am going to use a hot water bottle and take the first of my daily doses of full-spectrum hemp extract. Later, my lower back pain reduced to 2/10.
My period is 3 days late, and I have noticed that during these past few days, my appetite and mood have been regulated; Usually, I am not hungry and I am angry or irritated. Lately, I have had a bit of an appetite, and have felt less angry and irritated.
I took my daily doses today and required a hot water bottle for my lower back (pain of 4/10) in both the morning and evening. I speculate that, as these are around the same time that I take my tincture, it could be that my morning dose of CBD can relieve my symptoms of pain and inflammation throughout the day and that my evening dose is necessary to ensure the continuation of this relief.
My wrist was an overall 2/10 on the scale of pain, for the day.
I am still waiting for my period to start and felt tired today. Concerning my mood, I felt I was very blunt, but otherwise, all good.

I took my daily doses and started my period today. My morning dose was thus accompanied by an Aleve for pain relief, as well as a hot water bottle. Overall, I am in less pain than usual, and my mood has been better. I did experience a lack of appetite as well as fatigue today, but that is normal for me and was expected.
I did not animate or draw today, but rather did some work using Photoshop. My lower back presented an average pain level of 3/10 for the day; initially at a level of 4/10, which diminished to a level of 2/10, and arose to a level or 4/10 again in the evening before I took another Aleve (after dinner). My normal regime is to take an Aleve in the morning and one in the evening, to alleviate menstrual pain symptoms.
Today is day two of my period, and I have taken my daily doses of tincture, although I did not take any Aleve or use a hot water bottle, as I was not experiencing high levels of pain. I haven’t had an appetite throughout the day, which is normal. However, I do feel my mood has been positively affected as I felt good today – less irritated than usual.

Today I was sad to discover that I only had 0.25ml of Cedar Creek 1000mg Full Spectrum Natural Flavour tincture left. I have taken the dose.
In the conclusion of my experience using this tincture:
It had mental and emotional benefits for me, and it improved some physical strains I was experiencing. It took some trial and error figuring out the amount I should balance in the morning and evenings, as it was too calming at night with my initial doses and it caused me to sleep longer (and better) than usual. It is a product that followed through on what it promised. I would recommend this product to friends and I would make use of this product again.
