My mother has dementia/Alzheimers along with a broken knee that they will not repair do to her mental status. She is currently in a nursing home. I firmly believe her mental situation began with the over use of hydrocodone for over 30 years and was acerbated by the trauma of breaking and disconnecting her knee cap. Since weaning her off of her meds (still in progress) we have regained much of her consciousness. I want to try CBD to help in her recovery or to help slow down the disease. I cannot find a dosage recommendation plus the nursing home/doctor does not recommend it. I would need to give it to her when I am there visiting (about 3 - 4 times per week). Is there a recommended dosage for dementia/Alzheimers?
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.

I suffer with migraines, fibromyalgia, and arthritis. I pretty much hurt anytime I move. I’m on a regimen of meds, but ordered the Virgin Cannibis Hemp Oil (off of Amazon) and have had it two days. I took 3 tablespoons a day, gagging it down. I couldn’t bring myself to take it today, but I didn’t notice a difference after the second day, and I suppose I would notice something. Was it too soon, or should I be trying a different product? I really need something to alleviate the level of pain during movement, as it’s causing me to be more sedentary.
Hemp Extract- A Canadian hemp oil extract with naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids, and other beneficial phytonutrients extracted from the hemp plant. This CO2 extracted hemp oil is free of harmful solvents and uses a gentle, low temperature, alcohol free extraction process that yields the purest form of hemp oil extract available. This clean oil extraction process yields a high quality extracted hemp oil retaining a broad spectrum of terpenes and other phyto compounds derived from the Cannabis Sativa industrial hemp plant. This does not contain THC and is legal in all 50 states.
Of course, though, they offer less potent oils than that, with a product lineup that ranges from 300 mg CBD per bottle to 4,000 mg. Naturally the 4,000 mg option is the most expensive (this is the one that provides the “bomb” 60 mg dose), as it currently sells for $299. For long-term pain and anxiety relief, though, it may be well worth it if it is effective for you and helps replace your regular meds.
Unlike THC, which primarily binds to CB-1 receptors located in the brain, CBD works in the body by manipulating receptors throughout organ tissues, the immune system, the pain response system, the hormonal system, and other whole-body regulatory systems. Basically, since its receptors have been found to exist in virtually every cell and tissue type in the body, CBD is believed to work on every aspect of human health and behavior – from the subcellular level to the whole-body leve and beyond.
I really love Soul CBD! I had never looked at CBD before for my anxiety but was drawn to it from the research I did and hearing Angie talk about it so much. It’s my first brand and will be the ONLY brand I use. I wondered if it was a really working when I started with 500mg and kept using it. Then I got two confirmations for me. 1) I can fly calmly again! I used to get heavy anxiety when I flew and I took this prior to a cross country trip and not a speck of anxiety creeped up. However, my favorite confirmation was when I took it after being on a trip and forgetting my anti depressants. When I forget them, I get the worst withdrawal symptoms, from feeling like I was in a tunnel to dizziness and nausea. I reached for my Soul CBD (not thinking it would help but hey I had nothing else to try) and the symptoms were CUT IN HALF! I worked with my doctor (this is a MUST) and I went from 2 pills a day to 1 pill every other day as we are weening me off of them. Thanks to Soul CBD I don’t need to put harsh chemicals into my body with crazy side effects. I literally tear up every time I take it, I was against medication from the beginning and now I have proof that I don’t need it to help me!!! Thank you Soul CBD, customer for life!!!!
My husband was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) when he was 61 years old 4 years ago. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help him. The medical team did even less. His decline was rapid and devastating. His arms weakened first, then his hands and legs. Last year, a family friend told us about Rich Herbs Foundation (RHF) and their successful ALS TREATMENT, we visited their website www. richherbsfoundation. com and ordered their ALS/MND Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed his Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, he is able to walk and able to ride his treadmill again, he is pretty active now.
