Testing also shows that many products don’t contain what’s claimed on the label. For example, they may have less CBD than advertised. So, buyer beware.

Yes, there is evidence that CBD works for some conditions, but certainly not all the conditions it is being promoted for these days. There’s no evidence, for example, that CBD cures cancer. There is moderate evidence that CBD can improve sleep disorders, fibromyalgia pain, muscle spasticity related to multiple sclerosis, and anxiety.
People report that oral CBD helps relieve anxiety and pain and also leads to better sleep. However, the same may not be true for a host of other CBD products on the market today, in particular those that are rubbed on the skin. It’s hard to know whether these have any clinical benefit, because they haven’t been tested sufficiently.
If you are interested in trying a CBD product, it’s best to seek one through a dispensary, which is an establishment legally licensed to sell marijuana, if they are available in your state. Dispensary products must be labeled so you can see exactly how much CBD is in the product and whether it also contains THC. A small amount of THC in a CBD product isn’t typically problematic. But larger amounts could cause a “high” and may present a risk if you are going to drive.
CBD and other medications: Proceed with caution
While CBD can come from marijuana, it can also be derived from hemp. Hemp is a related plant with 0.3% or less of THC. This plant is often used to make fabrics and ropes. As of 2018, Congress made hemp legal in all 50 states, and consequently CBD derived from hemp is also legal. The rules around marijuana-derived CBD, however, are far less clear.

After wards, I was still retarded for about 5 minutes but significantly less impaired. The effects seemed to come on and drop off very rapidly, only lasting for about 15 minutes total. It is definitely shorter than a normal cannibis high. It also gave me severe anxiety just because of how absolutely fucked I was when I really wasnt expecting it. It did not feel good or natural.
I know that I took a dose that would be impossible to acheive if used as instructed; however, the fact that it was able to fuck me up and pretty much impair me as much or even more than an typical LSD trip for 10 minutes, means this shit is not okay. We have no idea what the fuck is in this shit and what you're putting in your body. It is not even remotely pleasurable in my opinion, although my friends still buy it because they're on probation. It is my full belief that this shit could cause a seizure or hospitilize someone- in fact, searching "Green mist CBD" on google brings up multiple articles of teens being hospitilized after passing out on this stuff. Yikes.
I know how much it can suck when you have your freedoms wrongly taken away and can't smoke weed, but it's not worth it to try to get high off this shit. A few of my friends have even mentioned getting a tolerance and withdraws, and also, it doesnt have any of the beneficial effects of CBD (anti anxiety is the one I care about and it does the complete opposite of relax you). Sorry for the long post, but I felt like this really needed to be documented somewhere on the internet so people know how serious this shit can be and to stay the fuck away.
After taking 3 hits off my friend's suorin drop(which was apperantly at an absolutely stupid 1:2 ratio of mist-juice), not holding them in or anything inhaling deeply, I was fucked up beyond belief. It took me several seconds to process any information. Not really strange thought patterns like weed, just an overwhelming sense of being fucked up. Physically, I was barely able to move. It caused aches in my back and neck (an effect Ive noticed before on smaller doses and Ive confirmed with friends), and it also made my pupils dialated. Heart was pounding out my chest. Soon after hitting, colors began to get very bright, and, I shit you not, I was overwhelmed with visuals. Not anything like psilocybin like LSD, or weed, more like my vision was became incomprehensible to a degree. My perspective felt incredibly shifted out of my head and would move forward and back despite me being still, and all the edges of physical objects and on the walls were obscured by jagged and zig zag lines. Colors shifted shaded slightly throughout the whole experience, almost as if someone was changing the lights. I was pretty much completely unable to particpate in any conversations with my friends and was pretty much out of commission and scared shitless for 10 minutes.
For starters, it has a terrible, terrible chemical taste. Not good. Not herbal or earthy like any other CBD products Ive used. But what's terrifying is the effects.
After trying this a few times recently in my friends' vapes, this stuff is absolutely horrifying. I have come to the conclusion that is undoubtedly some sort of synthetic cannabinoid. It is sold as a "juice additive" meaning you are only supposed to add a little bit to a large amount of regular vape juice in your mod; however, some of my friends are absolutely batshit and have been mixing it in much higher ratios (1:3 or even more) that felt very dangerous when I accidentally took 1 too many hits.
It gets you beyond fucked up. I dont even feel right calling it a "high" because it's hardly enjoyable and really isnt anything like a cannabis high at all. In fact, I would say it is significantly more impairing mentally and visually then even a very, very strong high off cannabis. It can make you completely retarded.
TL;DR: Im 100% this brand is some sort of synthetic cannibinoid and it can fuck you up and impair you beyond belief in the least pleasant way imaginable. Stay away
