Hops…Too Good Be True? from CBD to Sourced
It depends on what the CBD is placed in and how potent it is. In general start low and slow. Hemp and marijuana are two different plants, although they are in the same family.
Hemp has a much lower percentage of THC, which is the psychoactive part of the marijuana plant that gets people high. CBD Oil made from the hemp plant has. It is also available THC free. I agree that it is confusing.
Thank you so much for this post today. But the news from Pinetree was just what I needed to read. Thank you so much for recreating a sense of hope. I have been battling this monster for 34 years, sometimes with reprieves and usually with abject pain and exhaustion. But I am so grateful that you are trying your best to help conquer this scourge. This post is helpful for me as well because it demonstrates to me that there are things out there that are available that might REALLY be helpful.
I never dreamed that CBD oil could be so helpful. I am loathe to try again as it made me so ill. They do third party independent testing. My doctor flew there to check out their facility and was impressed. Remember too that cannabis plants are grown in high humidity. This means mildew is possible. A few facilities in Canada were found using a banned fungicide — surely this is not just limited to Canada.
The manufacturer really matters. I agree with a previous comment on Thorne- very high quality, gluten free, soy free, no fillers which some people react to, tested independently. It will show up here but I recommend that you subscribe to the newsletter — lots of stuff coming down the pike. The CBD oil businesses are not regulated so who knows what you are getting in the oil or balm!
I receive it via mail here in Hawaii. I use it for sleep, pain and relaxation. Guess I need to experiment some more…. Yesterday and today I am paying the price. I wonder which ones help her the most.
How much fish oil does she take? What do the Niacinamide mg non-flush niacin , PQQ pyrroloquinoline quinone do? Thanks for any input. Thanks Pinetree for going into detail. Details sure do make often quite a difference in success or failure.
As cannabis or their derivatives have good muscle relaxing properties for some people, and as one of my clear and gradual improvements directly resulted from techniques to relax my muscles I wonder:. IIRC, some people with ME get improvements in both pain and energy with muscle relaxing meds although in healthy people they are causing excessive sleepiness. I have a prescription for CBD but anything over 2 ml a day gives me restless legs at night so no sleep.
The doctor said I needed to be on at least 3 ml a day. After doing much research, I tried cbd oil and I got terrible headaches from it. I also had the opposite affect and it made me anxious. Any specific brands to recommend? Always willling to try again. I had bad anxiety too when I tried taking a capsule of the lower strength that Healthspan do here in the UK. It was obviously too much for me. However recently they have just brought out a CBD oil with a dropper and this seemed ok for me but I kept experiencing dizziness.
It turned out I had an ear infection developing and needed antibiotics so stopped the CBD oil to see if the dizziness improved. Its only 2 days since stopping it and I am still getting a bit of dizziness in the mornings so it might well not be the CBD oil. I am going to try again when I am off the antibiotics as I have a tendency for severe chronic migraines. I used to pretty much trip out on it.
Eventually the paranoia was overwhelming and continued when not stoned. THC in marijuana can often cause an increase in heart rate too, which is a form of exertion. Your better off getting true tested CBD oil. Or you could end up feeling worse. The flu like symptoms doubled in intensity. I know though that pure CBD oil does the opposite. It just takes a little bit to put me out for the night. It was really eerie….
Be aware that Hemp or CBD Oil is not legal to purchase in every state, Alabama being one of them, so check the legality in your state before ordering them, even if the products do not contain THC. Start low and go slow. Liposomal 3 squirts sublingual at night. For Anxiety and brain fog: For Pain and Anxiety: They have completely gone off their regular pain medications within three weeks. I dug out my CBC oil last night and took just two drops under the tongue, held it there for 10 mins this was just prior to bed in the hopes of some desperately needed sleep.
I know some strains are better for sleep. I have been looking into CBD oil here in Canada, waiting for my prescription to come.
My doctor recommended a company that has been regulated for some years. So reading this blog has raised my hopes. After 15 years I figure most things are worth a try. Keeping track of this when you were really struggling is so good, I envy your organization. Thanks Cort for keeping the information coming on so many varied topics. Do you know what dose the person in their article was taking?
Is there are greater benefit with very high doses? Also, what specific benefits of CBDs have been reported by those lucky enough to experience them?
I will have something on how CBD is believed to work in the next blog. There is an endocannabinoid system in the body that is new to discovery but is ancient in us.
Similar to how endogenous opioids they we naturally make,the endocannabinoid system helps with pain and mood regulation. It also appears to reduce inflammation. It also helps with sleep. If people sleep better, it helps reduce pain, allows the body to heal more easily and inflammatory messengers are quieted.
I tried a very low dose of medical marajuana first, but the THC in it amped up my tinnitus to screeching level. Under the tongue made me tense and caused intenseleg spasms. I put it on a banana slice and can handle that dose. I plan to try going higher slowly again. My case was slow onset and short-lived severe episodes for a couple of decades, then being left bedbound about a year ago after an infection. Have the full gamut of symptoms- cognitive, particularly linguistic, insomnia, panic, muscle pain, and weakness to the point of physical collapse.
But the last couple of weeks have been amazing. Left my wheelchair at home for the first time since I got it. My heart rate is 30 beats slower for just about any activity.
I was hitting just from standing up. For the last week it takes quite some exertion to get me close to my bpm anaerobic threshold.
That Fitbit data is just amazing…. Good luck and please keep us informed. Would you have been a hypothermia or at least low body temperature patient before? If so, would your body temperature have improved significantly these last 3 weeks? Did you experience a quick improvement jump in muscle relaxation 3 weeks ago? I know this is sort of off topic but I wanted to say that just the plain CBD oil at the right dose is very powerful and beneficial in some cases. Last week my 6 year old beloved Beagle Snoopy developed horrid seizures.
He had 3 in 24 hours. Blood work was perfect but my vet wanted him to have scans and maybe an MRI which would have cost thousands of pounds. I had by then Googled CBD oil for dogs and epilepsy and immediately started him on the lower dose capsule which contains 8 drops, one with his breakfast and one with evening meal. Within 12 hours of the first dose he looked a different dog, more like his old self. He just had one minor seizure the first full day of the CBD oil. That was a week ago tomorrow and so far so good.
We have back our normal lively Snoopy, nobody would know there is anything wrong with him and I am sort of pleased that I videoed his last attack, otherwise I think I might have dreamt it all. Not at all Pam.
That demonstrates the power of this oil when it works. His horrendous seizures stopped. If possible, since Pinetree has tried out many different brands of supplements, could we find out the brands she finally found the most helpful? I think that would be a great service to the readers. She said she tried the Ubidercarone form of CoQ10 but is that the form she stayed with? I began having visible hand and arm tremors.
I always have internal tremors when overdoing, but these symptoms are different. I know quite a few people who get severe dystonia. A good friend of mine who has been through pure hell with dystonia recommended CBD. Of all the most powerful drugs she has been given the CBD has worked well. After gradually building up the dose of CBD my tremors have gone away. They only returned when I ran out of my brand and bought a very expensive one from a health food store whose owner said it works for people with MS.
It helps with sleeping too. Also, on occasion I will take a small amount for anxiety or a headache. Hopefully, it will continue to work. I no longer get the terrible internal tremors either. Very surprised by the negative reactions posted here.
I can now grow my own CBD and make my own tincture, and there is nothing better for chronic body pain from my point of view. Wishing everyone the best in their pursuit of health. Very surprised and sorry to read about negative effects for some folks. We are especially spoiled here in Humboldt County, CA, with a history of quality products grown and produced here. Going to sound like an advertisement down below, and am not connected to any products. Even if you are out of state, there is a lot of info on the website: It appears to be an important component in CBD products.
My best experience with CBD has been with topical applications for addressing trigger point pain. Currently using a lotion made by Humble Flower Co. I am on a roll here in my 12th year, but it is an amino acid that is doing the trick for me right now: Researching MS symptoms led me to work on my perceived dopamine deficit.
The malaise has been greatly relieved. I am motivated and upbeat, a lot of the time, instead of staring at the walls. One day, recently, I told my husband that I did not feel well but did not care.
The other supplements I take: I take fish oil, curcumin, K2 and CoQ10 capsules at lunch time. Sublingual L-theanine at bedtime. I took Ashwagandha and still do occasionally for anxiety, but now take Mugwort at bedtime and NO more anxiety.
Also take magnesium capsules and sublingual D3 mcg and, my one prescription: At first sign of neuro-inflammation I take an Aleve and repeat as necessary. A great resource my apologies if posted elsewhere: For my burning pain, I have tried for the most part to handle. CBD oil is what gave me my life back and I am so incredibly grateful for this. Unfortunately, CBD oil was the last one I tried and went through many school medicine. I actually think that Duloxetine combined with CBD oil worked well, but has now chosen to completely discard Duloxetine.
Cort — An idea which I am sure you have already thought of, for writing back to us about cannabis … and about supplements — if this is not too much work or trouble. In your interview with Dr. Lapp upon his retirement, I remember he shared names of some supplements he usually recommended his patients take; then a commenter asked that he give more detail about his supplement recommendations, and he did.
It seems both topics have caused this sampling of us to go through lot of bodily-difficult and expensive trial and error. A Two expert CFS docs recommendations for me re: B Research I did on one aspect of cannabis. To all reading this: My doctor liked the supplements I was already on: This new expert doc wants me to soon add: I share the following Aug-Oct informal research findings, for anyone who: But few products now contain TCHV: Products with humelene are about equally as hard to find now.
Before I learned a lot of this I tried an oil under my tongue, and the day AFTER had nonstop munchies from hunger it was impossible not to relieve. And here is our quick disclaimer that we are in no way medical professionals, or promoting the cannabis industry. Our team regularly comes across beloved local businesses involving CBD or hemp in their products and wanted to explore the science.
Plus, where you can pick up oil yourself. They carry a selection of treat yo self topicals that include salve, ultra-moisturizing body lotion, and massage oil in a variety of both hand pump and roll-on packaging. The ice cream, created in conjunction with Blue Ridge Hemp Company , features hemp flower buds steeped in ice cream, which should give it a little of that dare we say dank undertone?
Silvermoon specializes in raw, organic chocolate, and recently created a CBD-infused vegan dark chocolate in collaboration with Blue Ridge Hemp Company. The chocolate bar also features goji, milk thistle, bee pollen, raw honey, chlorella, and spirulina, among other superfood ingredients. Choose from chocolate , golden spice , or regular ghee. If your furry friend has separation anxiety, hates thunderstorms and fireworks, or is just an extra good boy, Carolina Hemp Company carries dog supplements in both regular and gluten-free formulas.
See that coverage here. Like any and all medication and supplements, consult your physician before trying it, particularly if you are pregnant or already taking medication. And always buy it from a trusted source — fake CBD oil is out there, and accidentally ingesting it sounds like pretty much the opposite of relaxing. Have additional questions or comments?
