In fact, CBD is therapeutic in nature, and will work to manipulate bodily systems at the cellular level to return afflicted organ systems, tissue systems, and even chemical systems in the central nervous system back to a state of health and homeostasis. This is precisely why it has been capable of treating conditions such as depression and anxiety, to chronic physical ailments such as pain, inflammation, arthritis, and more.
Excellent comprehensive article on CBD Oil. I was injured in 2 auto accidents in 2 years when hit from behind twice while stopped. As a result, I have been on Opioids since 2000. Luckily, I am not addicted and am able to take them only when in severe pain. I have Oxycodone & Morphine 3X per day. I have Osteoarthritis in my knees that is very painful, and in my spine , neck, jaw, hands – it’s everywhere. I also have Fibromyalgia. I had Neck surgery – Fusions on 3 cervical discs because I was unable to hold my head up. The surgery helped, but I still have neck pain. I am a grandmother and I have to say Cannabis is a Miracle Drug. I only take a tiny bit in a pipe and it works immediately. I am able to get by on only a third of my Opioids – 1 Oxycodone & 1 Morphine daily when smoking Cannabis. I have CBD oil too. I have been wanting to try a different kind and now know what to try for better efficacy. CBD helps, but I need the THC. Cannabis is truly a miracle drug in all forms. I just hope it will be legal where I live soon. Thanks again for your in depth CBD article.

CBD drops come in a variety of delicious flavors you can enjoy, or keep it simple with an unflavored version with no extra ingredients.
I am OBSESSED! I ordered the 500 mg of peppermint. I am currently working through post partum anxiety and was taking anxiety medication until I started using this cbd oil! I had bought another cbd oil from a “well known” company and honestly didn’t feel much of a difference taking their oil. So, I was skeptical about even trying to order a different oil, but, I was not disappointed with my Soul cbd!!!!
Locsta....I share your pain of degenerative and bulging disk disease, along with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and arthritis. Absolutely no energy and chronic pain all day, every day. I'm curious as to what type and brand of the CBD oil you are taking and for how long have you been using it? I've been researching CBD oil for months and am quite confused!
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

CBD oil is also very beneficial in treating the cancer present in your body. Research has proved that CBD reduces as well as prevents the growth of cancer cells in your body. Every cell contains ceramide in it which is responsible for the life or death of the cell. If the ceramide is high in your cells that means your cell will die very soon, whereas low ceramide means that your body cell is strong and will live for a longer period of time.
Hi Colleen, it's almost a year later and I'm wondering how you're doing. I'm experiencing a recurrence of Stage 3 ovarian, originally diagnosed in 2011. I've decided to get some chemo, not sold on another 6 cycles though. As a new MMJ patient, I'm still going to go through with Rick Simpson Oil (THC+CBD,) and I just joined a program with my local dispensary to get CBD capsules for $2 each when I order them at least 30 at a time. I hope you're doing well!! I'm off to do more research on dosing. **NOTE: If you have ANY experience with CBD treatment of ovarian cancer, PLEASE respond. Thank you!!
Figuring out how much CBD oil to take can feel like trying to navigate through a complicated maze. The sheer volume of CBD brands on the market can create confusion for consumers, and when you take a closer look, it’s not difficult to understand why. Not only do vendors use different source materials (CBD-rich cannabis vs. industrial hemp, different strains, etc.), but they also implement different extraction techniques .
