However, if it was sourced from actual marijuana (i.e. cannabis that contains more than 2% THC by volume), then it is technically illegal. Most of the best CBD oils for pain that you find in dispensaries in states like Colorado, California, and Washington (as well as other states where weed is legal) will have been extracted from marijuana plants — not industrial hemp plants. Unfortunately, this means that these products are not allowed to be sold online and shipped across state lines to “non-legal” states.
The CBD oil needs to be taken twice a day everyday. The dosage depends on symptoms and it takes 30 days to awken your natural cannabis system after you begin taking the oil. I personally use Hemp works CBD oil in the 750 strength and only need 5 drops sublingual 2 times daily and results are many. Problem with oil and alz.patients is getting them to hold oil under tongue for 60 seconds. We have just began to get my dad on it. He too is in a nursing home in the state of florida and they cannot deny him any medication my mom has requested that he receive. If she is not their they are supposed to administer and she will call them to make sure he gets it. He is not 30 days into dosing yet so I don't have any results to speak of. I do know that since he has started he has had no more bladder infection and has not fallen in 3 weeks. That's a record for him so we will continue to monitor. Best of luck to you and a lot is going to depend on the state your mom is in and what the state laws are concerning her rights or the rights of whom has her medical power of attorney
Did you get an answer for this? I have the exact same scenario. I'm treating my TN with Tegretol, and recently tried CBD. I think I took too much and there are some weird drug interactions with Tegretol and I felt quite stoned....was alone and talking to myself in my head thinking I was Einstein. It freaked me out a bit but I think I took too much. I'm trying lower doses again as recently my TN seems to be resisting the meds, although I have had a lot of emotional stress, which seems to be a trigger. Thanks!! Anna
As soon as my anxiety rose to a point where I needed something to help ease it, I knew I did not want to turn to typical drug store/pill solutions. Thinking about possible negative side effects and not knowing what exactly I would be putting in my body scares me, I prefer trying holistic remedies for health issues. I immediately bought Soul CBD (…and guys, the lemon lime tastes AMAZING) and easily integrated it into my morning routine. The results… (drum roll pls) my entire mindset, mood, body, and feelings were elevated throughout the day and I no longer felt the effects of anxiety. Hello calmness!! Not only does Soul CBD help reduce my anxiety significantly, I also have had positive results when taking it to help sleep better and ease bad headaches. I trust not only the brand, but Angie Lee with the highest grade products available to purchase. Thank you so much for helping heal me!
...with due respect, your experience Locsta is almost precisely what happened with my....chihuahua. Degenerative disc disease, excruciating pain, prednisone worked, but couldn't keep her on it..pain killers and muscle relaxants didn't help, really thought I would have to put her down. Chi bloggers suggested CBD; gave PetReleaf a shot--like you, literally within minutes I could see the difference, in days she was pain free and now is back in charge of our world. The real key here is that with my dog, there is zero, nada, chance that there was any placebo effect...
However, switching to CBD oil from a conventional medication is far from a random stab in the dark. In fact, there was a large scale (and very well-documented) survey carried out less than two years ago that looked at precisely what percentage of patients were able to “swap” their side effect-inducing meds for a 100% natural, cannabis-based therapy.
The dosages mentioned do not take into account the strength of the tincture. I have Elixinol 300, I took 1/2 dropper (0.5ml, which offers 5mg of CBD) as indicated on the bottle and felt severely nauseous for 3 hours thereafter. There is no way I cold take this dose twice per day, as recommended on the bottle. The high dosages on this site must surely be for much weaker concentrations?
Pharmahemp™ CBD OIL DROPS come in 10 ml glass bottles with pipettes. The product contains 5% (500 mg) of cannabidiol (CBD). It is made from cannabidiol (CBD) from supercritical CO2 extraction of industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) diluted in olive oil (Cannabis sativa L.). Besides cannabidiol (CBD), the CO2 extraction process also preserves all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and nutrients. Our CBD Oil Drops have been tested and analyzed for both its cannabinoid ratio and microbiological adequacy. It does not contain parabens or any artificial dyes, scents, and is free of toxins and heavy metals.
Tammy et al, Through trial and error you will find a correct dosage. Try 50 mg daily....25 each 2x daily....if no results up the dosage until it works for you. Remember, there has never been a death from marijuana or CBD use. You might want to try a tincture or rub with CBD and THC. You won't get the psych high from it. Helps my friend with PArkinsons tremors. She takes 50mg of tincture and uses the rub morning and night. It is a miracle for arthritis. Good luck

Our CBD hemp oil is harvested from carefully selected cultivars of hemp, which naturally include more CBD than most hemp plants. Our non-GMO hemp is grown sustainably on a 750-family farming collective in Europe, without the use of herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or pesticides. It’s also processed and tested by certified, state-of-the-art laboratories. From the best ingredients to the highest quality manufacturing and testing practices, our CBD drops are the kind of product we can be proud of, and you can trust!
Truth be told, one of the biggest draws to using CBD oil for pain has been the fact that it has little distinguishable side-effects or contraindications with other medications. In fact, in a massive report that was published by the World Health Organization during last year’s 2017 Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, it was (finally) declared to the world that CBD is a “safe, well tolerated [compound, which] is not associated with any significant adverse public health effects.”
Unlike other CBD oils, PureKana really does excel in CBD oil extractions due to their unique CO2 extraction process which provides a near 99% pure CBD oil. PureKana Natural CBD Oil is an unflavored, dietary and nutritional supplement for increased health and vitality. It is extremely effective in treating chronic pain, inflammation, swelling, anxiety and sleep disorders.
Love love love!! I bought this as a first time user of CBD with the intention of easing stress/anxiety that causes that tension feeling in my gut. This stuff is literally incredible. The little things just do not matter anymore. I am able to get more done and feel more like myself because that paralyzing stress just isn’t there anymore. And the number one side effect I noticed, I laugh so much more! I have more snort / cry laughs in the last 2 weeks of taking this than maybe all year. Gold. I’m signing up the for subscription today.
I have tried other CBD oil brands from the local smoke shops. This FAB CBD oil is the only one I’ve ever tried that actually gives me results. I take it before bed, as I have trouble sleeping. It allows me to get the restful sleep that I need so desperately. I swear by this brand and have recommended to everyone who is contemplating trying CBD oil.
Not only are we all made differently, we each have our own unique history with the use of substances, medications, supplements, and other things we put in our body. Because of this, we all have different body chemistry, and this will affect how our body reacts to CBD. As R.R Noall over at Herb puts it, “what works for your friend, may not work for you.”
