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
Hi Diane, how did you go on with the CBD oil please. If it worked how long before you saw any results. I'm scared of flaring everything. Nerve damage across buttocks from a surgeon who found the nerve stuck to the bulge during a laminectomy operation and prised it off. I haven't sat for 5 years and getting worse. A muscle in my buttock is now throbbing constantly and causing pain to the muscle above. I've only started taking it today but the muscle pain is still as painful. Does it take a while for it to work. Only started on low dose to see what happens. Thank you Lyn
Medterra is a miracle worker for helping me through my recovery process after suffering a compound fracture in my arm followed by a major surgery. This product was my go to over any pain pills provided by my doctors, helping deal with the (insane) pain and ease my sleep cycle without any side effects or grogginess. Cant praise this product enough for allowing me to heal naturally!!
Hemp seed oil has been dubbed "Nature's most perfectly balanced oil", due to the fact that it contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linolei/LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/LNA) essential fatty acids, determined to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition. In addition, it also contains smaller amounts of 3 other polyunsaturated fatty acids in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), oleic acid and stearidonic acid. The EFA combination is unique among edible oil seeds.
Cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD), work by mimicking natural endocannabinoids like anandamide (described above) in the body. Endocannabinoids are part of a complex messaging system in the body called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system oversees or regulates parts of the nervous system, endorphins, immune system functions, hormones, mood and emotions, metabolism, and many other chemical messengers in the body.
Yes, there is currently one FDA-approved prescription CBD product, called Epidiolex, for the treatment of seizures associated with two rare and severe forms of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. There is also an oral spray called Sativex, which is a combination of THC and CBD used to treat pain related to multiple sclerosis, but it is not approved in the United States.
You can think of the full spectrum of all the chemical compounds found in cannabis as the “language” of the plant. It’s not one chemical, but all the chemicals combined working together that cause a response (again, the entourage effect). When you consume CBD oil, you gain the benefits of all those chemical substances in natural synergy. For that reason, you get full benefit at a dose range of 25-50 mg.
Canola oil is derived from rapeseed, a flowering plant, and contains a good amount of monounsaturated fats and a decent amount of polyunsaturated fats. Of all vegetable oils, canola oil tends to have the least amount of saturated fats. It has a high smoke point, which means it can be helpful for high-heat cooking. That being said, in the United States, canola oil tends to be highly processed, which means fewer nutrients overall. “Cold-pressed” or unprocessed canola oil is available, but it can be difficult to find.
Synthetic CB1/CB2 receptor agonists are associated with a reduction of infarct size and hypothermia in animal models. CB1 receptor antagonists, however, have also shown a reduction of infarct size. The conflicting results prove the complexity of the ECS; others hypothesize that the CB receptor inhibitors may be targeting nonCB receptors but still producing neuroprotective effects. Studies are also investigating modulation of CB1/CB2 receptor activation with promising results on reducing infarct size with stimulation of CB2 and inhibition of CB1 . CB may also play a beneficial role in post-stroke rehabilitation with studies reporting CB1 and CB2 receptor expression in neural stem and progenitor cells .
Preliminary research indicates that cannabidiol may reduce adverse effects of THC, particularly those causing intoxication and sedation, but only at high doses. Safety studies of cannabidiol showed it is well-tolerated, but may cause tiredness, diarrhea, or changes in appetite as common adverse effects. Epidiolex documentation lists sleepiness, insomnia and poor quality sleep, decreased appetite, diarrhea, and fatigue.

A type of polyunsaturated fatty acid, flaxseed oil is often used for medicinal purposes. The consumption of flaxseed oil is suggested to treat a wide variety of conditions including rheumatoid arthritis and high cholesterol as well as constipation and weight loss, mostly related to an adequate amount of healthful alpha-linolenic acid (also as mentioned in canola oil).
Cannabidiol has antipsychotic effects. The exact cause for these effects is not clear. However, cannabidiol seems to prevent the breakdown of a chemical in the brain that affects pain, mood, and mental function. Preventing the breakdown of this chemical and increasing its levels in the blood seems to reduce psychotic symptoms associated with conditions such as schizophrenia. Cannabidiol might also block some of the psychoactive effects of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Also, cannabidiol seems to reduce pain and anxiety.
Four studies have compared the heart-health effects of a diet rich in conventional sunflower oil, a polyunsaturated fat, with a diet rich in canola oil, which has more monounsaturated fat. The researchers concluded that sunflower oil and canola oil had similar effects: Both reduced people's levels of total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, according to a 2013 review of those studies, published in the journal Nutrition Reviews.
The active ingredient in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabidiol is an extract of THC that can be measured along with THC in laboratory research settings. The effects of acute exposure of marijuana on sleep are similar to some hypnotics because they can induce sleep (Hollister, 2001), slightly decrease REM sleep (Pivik et al., 1972), and adversely affect sleep upon withdrawal (Wiesbeck et al., 1996). Doses of 10, 20, and 30 mg THC prior to sleep have decreased SOL after subjects reported achieving a “high” subjectively (Cousens and Dimascio, 1973). There is an initial increase in S4 sleep with THC (Pivik et al., 1972; Feinberg et al., 1975, 1976), but more recent studies have found that 15 mg THC and 5 mg cannabidiol before bed decreased S3 sleep (Nicholson et al., 2004). Prolonged ROL (Nicholson et al., 2004), reduced eye movements, and reduced REM sleep duration have also been noted (Pivik et al., 1972).
