CBD and How It Feels and Acts In Your System

CBD – How It Feels – What It Actually Does

Want me to nut shell it? Summarize to ONE word?


CBD Can give some people a “whatever” disposition. It’s okay in dogs.

You’re adding this word to the lexicon of any animal or person that gets CBD (cannabidiol) in sufficient quantities.

Sometimes that’s PERFECT –  other times not-so-much.

It doesn’t affect a dog’s engagement in ‘happy’ stuff. Who says “Whatever” to fun?

But stuff that used to cause anxiety – –  “Whatever

CBD stands for “Can’t Be Disturbed” it basically inserts the term “whatever” after most of the things that would otherwise frighten or annoy a dog or cat.

“I’m not doing this with you right now“ 
Irritability is short-lived and you’re quick to give up on things that make you mad.

“Whatever.” This term moves into the lexicon of the person or animal taking CBD with consistency and at a sufficient dose. For better or worse, a dog might get a lot less angry about other dogs when it is being walked. A cat, might take less notice of another cat or its behavior in the household.

Paradoxically, that attitude is not taken towards things that a person or animal might enjoy. In fact, their ability to be in the moment when doing something they enjoy seems intensified.

“CBD helped me cope with a great loss.”
It’s very hard to hold something in your mind. You become “forgetful“ of the things that annoy you. It’s not that you don’t think about them, it’s just that you don’t dwell on them. In fact, unless it’s something you really like, it’s hard to dwell on anything. This can be a drawback for people who make a living as large problem-solvers.

CBD can reduce the sense of urgency that you feel from moment to moment. This would *NOT* be a good compound for world leaders to be taking as they try to work out important matters that require passion, effort, surrounding potentially hostile issues. No problems would be solved, they would simply shrug their shoulders and say “Whatever.”

CBD might also be a poor choice for someone with a tendency to procrastinate. Or if you are already overwhelmed by situations in your life, it will be difficult to fixate on those issues and then have the passion to situate them.

CBD oil does not make you calm. It does not have a calming affect. You don’t take CBD and then become calm. When mixtures of THC and CBD are available, we will start to see some of the greater benefits of cannabinoid therapy.

“I Sleep Better”
CBD is much less likely to make you sleepy, then it is to keep you from holding onto things that would otherwise keep you from falling asleep. If that makes any sense.

CBD is not a “you take it – you feel it” compound like THC containing oil’s are.

For people, and speaking for myself, and perhaps based on the dosage that I was taking, I think there may be better ways to control inflammatory processes like arthritis. The anti-inflammatory process is gradual and cumulative. Stay on it, and the CBD will gradually decrease the arthritis pain until it’s very minimal. 30 days or so for me.

There is no doubt in my mind that CBD oil has anti-inflammatory properties as I saw consequential improvements in a stress related skin and bowel disorder that has been with me for quite a few years.  TMI right?

Dogs and cats don’t have first-world “problems” to fix so in my opinion CBD is perfect for them.

I, on the other hand, will be discontinuing my CBD, because I do have real problems, and I need to have the passion to fixate on them long enough to fix them. I will miss the anti-anxiety effects and improved “being in the moment” benefits.

This is The LCD Screen Scope
We Did The Tutorial With. I did a twenty page tutorial (Here's the tutorial) with video, audio, images and even little parasite movies to show you how to use a microscope. 

This Filter is Good For BIG Dirty Tanks
I've been wrestling with water quality with the turtles. The sponges work GREAT, but in THOSE turtle systems where they eat MICE the poops are bulky. This filter can handle it. In "Tortu's" tank, it's got an 800 gph pump and it rocks. 

PraziPro for Flukes
They nailed it. Figured out the solubility and worked out the dosing. It works. 

Buy Some Good Koi?
No, this isn't really for the 'high end' collector y'all. But for someone who isn't near a decent garden center, here are "good-to-quite-good" Koi you will like at a very good price. I know these guys personally.

Best Food, Ever
It's made for (and I discovered it for) my Blood Parrots but the small size, intense color enhancers and excellent formulation make it superb young-Koi food. Oh, and it's AMAZING on color-cichlids like Flowerhorn and Blood Parrots. 

Pro Air 60 Aerator is a VERY high output air pump pushing my whole fish room (17+ drops), and I have one at home driving everything there, and I have one as a back up. 

Formalin Malachite (Not dilute)
There are formalin malachite preparations at 10%, 22% and 37%. There's economy in the concentrates. Hard to get Prime shipping because air transport is curtailed. This is a good value on 32 ounces. 

Topical For Koi and Pond Fish Ulcers
I like 7% tincture of iodine because it stains but it's hard to hurt anything with it. Used with a WOVEN gauze, this works well to clean and disinfect a wound. Only use ONCE. Do not 'repeatedly' scrub wounds. 

Confectioner's Glaze 
Is the way to bind a medication to fish food. Gone are the days of paste food and oil. The write up is done, it's RIGHT HERE.

Koi Health & Disease
Hopefully this link takes you to the newest edition by PRIME to get it to your house the fastest. 

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?

CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.

Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy. 

LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths. 

If you're making medicated feed for a larger group of fish, this will come in handy. Dosing is available in the site. 

For me, filtration-of-choice
For aquariums, even small Koi holding facilities or small ponds. These sponge filters are cheap, easy to clean, and they clear hazes very well when used with some Accuclear or similar.

Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
Make great hospital or quarantine facilities. They SHOULD cost about $200-300 depending on size, but this, lower quality unit (while panned in some reviews) may be good. Don't overfill and make sure it's propped up.

1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
I have several of these ALLIED PRECISION stainless ones that are a couple years old. Working still. 

Potassium Permanganate 
500 grams could be a lifetime supply but it's 50% more than the 100g cost wise, for 500% more amount. Dosing is in the site and the book.

What Does Ajax Eat?
I looked for something well formulated, with meat as the first ingredient. Something UNDER $2/lb and something they could deliver for free. And this was it. He looks and feels great on it.
