I just started taking CBD oil , I am on my 2nd Hip replacement surgery due to device failures looking at a 3rd surgery. Has you can imagine the pain, stress and anxiety levels are off the charts. Especially at an otherwise healthy 54 yr women. So i understand from reading posts its best to take it under the tongue. I am taking 1-2 ml a day. I can tell some difference,is your recommended dosage. I am using for pain , stress and sleep. I appreciate your feedback.
Some cannabis cultivators have focused on breeding certain cannabis strains that carry high levels of CBD and trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for medicinal purposes. Although THC does exhibit potential health benefits in its own right, its psychotropic properties can potentially cause undesirable side effects. It is worth noting that despite the strong psychoactive effects of THC it has proven to be effective in the treatment of a number of conditions and, can be used alongside CBD and other phytocannabinoids as a medicine.
Research shows that the effects of cannabis may help to protect the brain from the damage that is caused by a stroke. This is done by reducing the size of the area that was affected by the stroke. There has been research that has shown neuroprotective effects from cannabis that protects the brain in the case of other traumatic events, like concussions.
Hemp oil (also called hemp seed oil) is extracted from the hemp seeds of the hemp plant and it contains very little or no THC. Marijuana, on the other hand, has THC levels above 0.3 percent (usually between 5-35 percent). Because of its low THC levels, you can use hemp oil without feeling “high” afterwards. Hemp is typically grown for industrial purposes, as it’s used to make clothing, paper, ropes, carpets, construction materials and plastic composites.

Medical marijuana in the U.S. is controlled at the state level. Per federal law, cannabis is illegal as noted in the Controlled Substances Act, but the federal government has stated they will not actively prosecute patients and caregivers complying with state medical marijuana laws. However, use of medical marijuana outside of the state laws for illegal use or trafficking will not be tolerated by state or federal government.
To get an idea of the benefits of CBD, just take a look at video of CBD oil helping with a form of childhood epilepsy called Dravet syndrome. The first use of CBD for Dravet’s syndrome was given to a patient who was having 300 seizures a week. I first talked about this video last year Is Weed Healthy? The Controversial Truth About The Science Of Marijuana…
YES. Isolate has been shown to be LESS effective than PhytoCannabinoidRich oil (aka Broad-Spectrum CBD). Also, the dosage recommendations on the website you mentioned don’t seem to consider ROUTE OF ADMINISTRATION. Swallowing CBD oil is less efficient than Swishing CBD which is less efficient than Vaporizing CBD. (And topical CBD is ideal for localized conditions).
HI Leslee, there are so many oils out there and I always talk about absorption when I talk about this oil. What is important is how much you absorb and if the hemp has a delivery vehicle that can get past the blood-brain barrier. This is so important, or you are taking the oil and peeing it out… I mean you will get some of the benefits, which some benefits are great, right? But I always want the most for my investment. We all have to consider three factors when making a decision around our health investments 1-time, 2-energy and 3- finances. TIme in the sense that it will take time for the body to assimilate and adjust, I’d rather your time be spent with an oil that is potent and absorbable. 2. It takes energy to commit and be dedicated to caring for your body, which means taking the oil everyday… then lastly 3. Money, I would rather someone invest in a product that is going to move the needle so to speak, quickly rather than it taking weeks and not having someone find or feel the effects, then saying, “OH that CBD HEMP STUFF doesn’t work…” 🙁 Make sense?
The stark fact that hemp oil comes from cannabis plant, which is immensely controversial in many countries of the world because of its psychoactive capabilities has led to significant masking of data regarding hemp oil. Most countries now have regulations set in to determine what deserves to be called hemp oil. There is often a cap on the highest detectable limit of THC in hemp oil.

Good to know: Earleywine suggests you drop a dose of tincture under your tongue and hold it there for 30 seconds before swallowing, or apply a single spray of the tincture on the inside of your cheeks. Doing so speeds up the effects of the CBD. If you put the tincture on the top of your tongue, you’re likely to swallow it sooner, sending it into your digestive tract, which will absorb the CBD more slowly. If you add a CBD tincture to foods or drinks, it could take up to 30 minutes for it to enter your bloodstream.

Industrial hemp naturally contains very low levels of THC and high levels of CBD. It is legal to purchase CBD oil that comes from the hemp plant because it contains less than 0.3 percent THC. This is good news for consumers who are looking to purchase CBD oil legally and for farmers who can now profit from hemp. In fact, hemp is much easier to grow than marijuana, as it requires less water, no pesticides and minimal care — plus it’s adaptable to most climates.

So oxygenating the body is essential to help kill the cancer. You can lightly bounce on a 3ft. little trampoline for 20 minutes a day. This helps to oxygenate the body and quickly increases white blood cell counts. If you don't want to bounce on a trampoline you can walk outside 3-4 times per week without fatigue to increase oxygen to the body. Also Drink lots of non- chlorinated/non-fluoridated spring water every day. At least 1(one) gallon with ½ tsp. of Himalayan pink salt. This increases the electricity in the body that is needed to heal.


Before buying hemp oil, it’s important to decide why you’re buying it. How do you plan on using the hemp oil? Will you use it as a dressing or additive to your daily diet? Do you plan on using it for your skin? Depending on what your answer is, you can tailor what type of hemp oil to buy. If you are looking to eat (or drink) hemp oil for its nutritional benefits, we recommend checking out our price & reviews section to see what unrefined hemp oil is the best fit for you. If you are considering hemp oil for your skin, there are many other options you could consider. Unrefined hemp oil is used to make some amazing body care products.
It should also be noted that, because CBD oil is mostly unregulated, products may be incorrectly labeled. To that end, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2017 found that nearly 70 percent of all CBD products sold online are mislabeled and that a number of products contain a significant amount of THC. Since THC can aggravate anxiety and make your heart beat faster than normal, it’s possible that using CBD oil that contains THC might make your anxiety worse.

Many a time, multiple cannabinoid compounds are used together, either knowingly or unknowingly.  It is, hence, tough to discern the extent to which each compound is involved in causing the desired effect. There are cases where a group of cannabinoids works synergistically in bringing about bodily reactions. Studies selectively employing CBD oil are few in number, but promising.
The most common commercial method for extracting the good stuff from the cannabis plant is the CO2 method. This is one of the more expensive extraction methods but creates the purest cannabis oil of all the methods. The CO2 method requires you to use condensed and supercooled carbon dioxide which is then run through the cannabis plants to cool and extract the oil while leaving no residue or chemicals. This method is best used to create concentrates for smoking in multiple ways.
Support overall health. Eat it. You can eat it straight and enjoy its nutty flavor or you can put it in salad dressings, as a butter replacement on toast, rice, potatoes, vegetables...it's delicious! Keep in mind that pure hemp seed oil cannot be used for high-heat cooking. It has a low smoke point and will totally break down even at a moderate heat, at which point all nutritional benefits are lost.

He did my parathyroidectomy and he is the best there is in this field. He can tell you if you need a repeat surgery and if it will help. He fixes parathyroids that were operated on by other doctors all the time and does a splendid job. Fast, almost painless, perfect. Please call him. Please. You shouldn’t try to live with a botched parathyroidectomy. Believe me it is so super dangerous to your health. Bless you Mike.
Perhaps even more challenging for those looking for treatment is discovering the dose that might work best for their particular condition. That’s because so much remains unknown about CBD, including how it works, says Norbert Kaminski, Ph.D., a professor of pharmacology and toxicology at Michigan State University and director of the Institute for Integrative Toxicology.

Dosing cannabis oil from Oral syringes into empty pill capsules will also allow for a patient/care-giver to dose out the cannabis oil treatment for many days in advance.  This makes it easy for a patient to keep track of how much oil that they are taking and when they take it.  It also makes it easy to add the cannabis oil treatment to any other oral medication regimen that a patient might be on.

In addition to the research on the use of cannabinoids in palliative treatments for cancer—reducing pain and nausea and in increasing appetite—there are also several pre-clinical reports showing anti-tumor effects of CBD in cell culture and in animal models.xxviii These studies have found reduced cell viability, increased cancer cell death, decreased tumor growth, and inhibition of metastasis (reviewed in McAllister et al, 2015).xxix These effects may be due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD;xxx however these findings have not yet been explored in human patients. There are multiple industry sponsored clinical trials underway to begin to test the efficacy of CBD in human cancer patients.

Considering the complete non-addictiveness and safety of cannabis, Dr. James Hudson, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of British Columbia Department of Pathology and Lab Medicine, has said that pharmaceutical companies have an enormous incentive to chemically recreate the natural compounds in marijuana and somehow sell a drug from it. You probably already know this, but pharmaceutical companies can’t patent a natural compound, but if they can make a synthetic compound that mimics ingredient from cannabis, they can formulate that as a drug and potentially make a lot more money off of it.
Hello Ben, I’m from India. My apologies in advance for a long letter. I’ve found you article very informative and humorous also. While there are a few references to India, they are mostly of turmeric. Marijuana and Hemp recorded use in India is more than 6000 years old. You seem to have missed out on it though you do talk of Persia and early Christianity dating back to 2000 years.
The hemp oil has a number of health benefits and its products as well as its raw forms are used to provide many essential amino acids to the body. If the body is deprived of any of these amino acids there are serious problems like genetic mutations and cancer. Hemp oil cures cancer as the essential and non-essential amino acids are present in abundance in the oil and thus when hemp oil is regularly used by cancer patients, there are chances of cure. Thus using hemp seed oil is very useful for many reasons.

Until recently, unless you count smoking a very small number of joints at a few random parties in college, about the closest I’ve come to what might be considered “fringe” substance use has been via occasional use of nootropics and herbal extracts like packets of concentrated Chinese herbs, smart drugs like piracetam, anirecatam and alpha-GPC combinations (see my white powder on a kitchen scale video here) and vaporizing nighttime sleep extracts of melatonin and L-theanine (yet another creepy video here).

As more and more states legalize the use of marijuana, a product known as CBD oil has surged in popularity. A chemical compound found in the cannabis plant, CBD, or cannabidiol, is non-intoxicating and does not cause the noticeable euphoric effects associated with tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC, another marijuana compound). Products marketed as CBD oil may contain THC.
When taken to relief the symptoms of epilepsy, CBD is typically administered orally. Researchers have found that this same method of dosing may be effective in using CBD to treat social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and related conditions. Evidence also suggests that this cannabinoid could be helpful in treating the symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder.
My mother was thinking about trying CBD because she heard it would help with her diabetes and I was wondering how good is CBD at controlling sugar levels as my mother has tried multiple insulin drugs and they might work for a while but then stop working from what I understand. She got her diabetes from the Growth Hormone Drug back in 2009 and she also got some type of rare mouth Tumor which the doctor did the surgery to remove it wrong and caused it to spread. Will this work at controlling her sugar levels as she gets both high and lows, for example, she once had her sugar levels so high that it was unreadable and the doctors were amazed that she was still alive plus she also gets lows sometimes. Also, because of diabetes, she has neuropathy where she is losing feeling in her toes and does not feel the heat from hot products when she picks them up, will this product also help with the neuropathy and any remaining tumor?
Food and beverage products containing CBD were introduced in the United States in 2017.[53] Similar to energy drinks and protein bars which may contain vitamin or herbal additives, food and beverage items can be infused with CBD as an alternative means of ingesting the substance.[54] In the United States, numerous products are marketed as containing CBD, but in reality contain little or none.[55] Some companies marketing CBD-infused food products with claims that are similar to the effects of prescription drugs have received warning letters from the Food and Drug Administration for making unsubstantiated health claims.[56] In February 2019, the New York City Department of Health announced plans to fine restaurants that sell food or drinks containing CBD, beginning in October 2019.[57]
Carol, thanks for your long and detailed post, and the links. In your paragraph where you reference various effects, you write “cannabis” several times. There are several components of “cannabis”, THC is the more psychoactive component – and current varieties have been bred/engineered to have ever increasing concentrations of this. CBD is another component, which has different and in some cases opposing effects vs. THC. Are the statements you made about effects of “cannabis”, do they center on THC, consumption/use of the whole plant, or have they broken out a purified CBD product and tested the impacts of just that component. Earnest question.
Europe is a patchwork of cannabis legislation. In the Netherlands, doctors can prescribe cannabis and cannabis preparations for symptoms caused by multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, cancer, long-term pain and the tics associated with Tourette’s syndrome. Other European nations are following suit. In the US, at least 29 states allow medical uses of cannabis, and earlier this year, California became the eighth state to permit recreational use of the drug, too.

CBD hemp oil has been proven in clinical trials to benefit humans and animals alike, as we both have endocannabinoid systems and are receptive to the chemical compound. Current studies also show that it is impossible to overdose on the substance. There is no need to worry if your dog takes a larger dose of CBD than anticipated – it is highly unlikely to have any negative effects, making it a safe and easy alternative treatment for your pet.
Using cannabutter or cannabis canola oil in baked goods are classic ways to make edibles, but a lot of people have started using cannabis coconut oil in their favorite sweet treats since it’s vegan and paleo-friendly. You can also use infused olive oil in your baked goods although it’s important to know that most olive oils have a strong flavor that may change the flavor of your finished goodie.
Though these outer layers of skin do a good job at keeping elements like water from seeping in, absorption of certain chemicals through the skin is a useful fact when administering certain types of medication. Many medicines are delivered through the skin, most often in the form of patches or gels. This method is very effective at delivering chemicals into our body, it’s even possible to die from an overdose on a fentanyl patch.

Science has yet to “go all-in” on studying the use of marijuana (CBD specifically) for the treatment of these disorders because of the stigma that surrounds the cannabis plant (and its illegality). As laws change, though, we have no doubt that more and more studies will show what the cannabis world already knows: CBD (cannabidiol) is a valuable medical molecule.
Agreed with this blog. CBD is best to treat anxiety, depression, pain, chronic pain, inflammation, Alzheimer’s and many more diseases. I’ve experienced good qualities of CBD. I was suffering from the chronic pain for a very long time. One of my friends suggested me to take CBD oil which can treat my pain. I took it for a few weeks twice a day and the pain was totally gone. I felt more relaxed and calm than ever before. I am wondering that how CBD can cure this much effectively? I love CBD and I recommend it to people.

To establish an optimal treatment regime with cannabis, you will need to balance the effects of different strains, doses, and methods of ingestion. It may be helpful to record your therapeutic relationship with cannabis on an ongoing basis. One method is through keeping a cannabis-use log that captures your experience, including thoughts, feeling and behaviors. Periodically reviewing the log can help both you and your doctor make decisions about what works best.
Although anxiety disorders are generally treated with psychotherapy, medication, or a combination of the two, many people opt to forgo these standard approaches and self-treat with products like CBD oil. According to a survey published in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research in 2018, almost 62 percent of cannabidiol users reported that they used CBD to treat a medical condition, with the top three conditions being pain, anxiety, and depression.
So to gain a higher production of THC in a field of cannabis plants, you simply take away the male plants so the females can’t be pollinated, and to lower THC production, you keep the male and female plants together. Plants used for CBD oil or CBD capsules or hemp oil or hemp protein or your hippie neighbor’s tie-dyed hemp headwear meet the international standards of less than 1% THC.
The case study notes that advanced chemotherapeutic agents had failed to control the blast counts (cells in the blood and bone marrow) in the patient and had devastating side effects that ultimately resulted in death. The cannabinoid therapy, on the other hand, had no toxic side effects and only psychosomatic properties, with an increase in the patient’s vitality.
It can be difficult to discern the difference between hemp and marijuana oil. And it’s important (especially if you’re new to medical cannabis) to know the difference between the two before you learn just how to use marijuana oil. Knowing the difference will ensure that you’re using it for exactly what you need, and it will give you the most optimal effect.
While cannabis is still widely illegal worldwide due to THC’s psychoactive effects, CBD can be found in an extract from industrial hemp. It is fairly accessible and usually legal due to its extremely low THC levels. People should check to make sure CBD is legal in their country. But, a number of countries are beginning to use cannabis for medicinal purposes, and this has opened the market for a number of CBD products to choose from for targeted relief.
Adding to the confusion is the murky legal status of CBD. Technically, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) labels all CBD products as illegal. However, hemp-derived CBD is available in just about every state and even online through Amazon. Marijuana-derived CBD tends to only be found in states with legal medicinal marijuana. “This confusion is actually helping the producers of these products as consumers are turning to reliable and trusted brands,” said Dr. Solomon. Care by Design is one of the top marijuana-derived brands in the California market, followed closely by Bloom Farms, a leader in the cartridge oil market for vape pens. Kiva Confections is the third favorite choice in the chocolate market. The survey found that these three brands dominated leaving the rest of the market very fragmented. One of the complaints from the CBD users in the survey was that marijuana-derived CBD products were more expensive than hemp-derived products.
I should begin by clarifying the fact that I am *not* a physician and this is *not* to be interpreted as medical advice. Please talk to a licensed medical professional about all of this! Studies conducted to evaluate the safety of CBD intake for pregnant mothers found it to have no significant effect on developing embryos: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7568154
Cannabis cooking oils like olive, peanut, or canola are great ways to inject THC into your meal. Cook with it as you would normally, just be mindful of how much you’re using since the effects of ingesting cannabis are slower to set in and last much longer than smoking. Ideas: saute veggies, roast potatoes, marinate meat, or mix up a vinaigrette for your favorite salad.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19045957 The nonpsychoactive Cannabis constituent cannabidiol is a wake-inducing agent. lateral hypothalamus or dorsal raphe nuclei, which are wake-inducing brain areas which cannabidiol enhances wakefulness and decreases slow wave sleep and REM sleep. Furthermore, cannabidiol increases alpha and theta power spectra but diminishes delta power spectra. Additionally, cannabidiol increases c-Fos expression in lateral hypothalamus or dorsal raphe nueclei. These findings suggest that cannabidiol is a wake-inducing compound that presumably activates neurons in lateral hypothalamus and dorsal raphe nuclei.
Dispensaries: In states where marijuana is legal for recreational use, dispensaries are a common sight. They are much rarer in states with more restrictions. In states that permit the use of medical marijuana, hemp-based CBD oils do not normally require a prescription but marijuana-based oils do. Like brick-and-mortar locations, dispensaries offer more customer service. However, as noted, this may not be an option depending on the buyer’s state of residence. Also, CBD oil prices tend to be significantly higher at dispensaries.

Hi Lauren I've just started today with 250mg cbd oil. I'm starting low to see what happens. I've nerve damage across buttocks from a laminectomy. I've not been able to sit for 5 years. I've recently started with a muscle spasm in my left buttock and the muscle above is painful. It is only the first day, also tried a cbd night time tea as well. Do change in muscle pain so tight on my left hand side. How long before felt it starting to work please. I'm trying not to expect changes straightaway. I also take 1100mg gabapentin and 30mg amitriptyline and I hate both of them - they both can cause muscle tightness affecting the nerve. Thank you Lyn
