My mom is late stage dementia.  We have tried coconut oil/black pepper/curcumin combo for years.  Gives only tine bit of help, and is not something that reverses dementia.  Maybe in someone who can score better than a 14 on the mme it could be of help.  But cannabinoid is a different story.  Cannabinoids produce better results in less time.  Can’t say yet that they will reverse anything though.
CBD works by attaching itself to specific receptors of the body’s own endocannabinoid system. The human body is known to produce cannabinoids of its own, which affect the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptors are generally found in the brain, and deal with pain, mood and emotions, movement, appetite, among others. THC acts upon the CB1 receptors. Meanwhile, CB2 receptors are more commonly found throughout the immune system, affecting inflammation and thus pain. CBD is thought to act upon these receptors, by influencing the body to produce its own cannabinoids in order to rebalance itself.

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.

“There's not much more to say than it being perfect at what it is, a high quality lip balm. There is no off taste as I expected, rather it had a mild vanilla earthy taste after being applied. The actual balm is a dark green colour but there is no strange colour on your lips after using it. It doesn't feel greasy at all, it gets quickly absorbed and feels nice and soft after a while. I'd definitely buy some again.”
Stephanie, generally, I have patients take 20 to 150mg a day for sleep +/- anxiety. Start low and go slow. Know the dosages of your product. Usually 2/3 to 3/4 of the daily dose is 1-2 hours before bedtime, and the other portion is upon waking (to improve wakefulness during the day). Other factors such as stress, hormone replacement, other meds & medical conditions, etc. play a role along with individual differences. I own a compounding pharmacy, so we see a lot of unique needs. I can’t give more specific advice in this forum, but there is help!
I am approaching three weeks of being on CBD gold drops and just purchased the applicator version. I also bought the balm to rub on for shoulder pain. The first week I thought maybe I was wanting to believe in it so much that it was working, that maybe it was just that. I simply couldnt believe that it would work after all the doctors Id been to. Was recently told I would need to be on weekly shots for psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia. Have had two wrist surgeries and was looking at a shoulder and elbow surgery in my future. Have celiac disease and chronic pancreatitis too. Since taking this, I have had no joint or muscle pain! Happier because can do things! No anxiety being concerned about having to go places with pain. I don’t have the pain. Some days will have an aches, but can handle. Opioids never worked for me, so told doctors not to give me. I felt at a loss and decided one day that I would try CBD oil. By the second week, I was convinced! Im doing yard work and sleeping again! Im feeling normal! So thankful! I take it daily. Right now a dropper full of 5mg but plan on trying the applicator gold.
Tinctures are very popular and for a good reason. They offer a unique opportunity for manufacturers to add other robust ingredients, such as coconut oil, terpenes, spearmint, and other natural herbs and essential oils. These additions help mask the pungent taste of natural hemp. The flavor of tinctures is typically more well-received than the pure CBD concentrates, which you’ll find in the next section.

Another field in which CBD is creating a buzz is in the area of mood disorders like anxiety and depression. Both conditions have been treated with a variety of medications, courtesy of Big Pharma, that have had varying levels of success. Again, the long list of side effects can be off-putting to someone who just wants to get through the day without the sweaty tension of anxiety or the gray haze of depression.
The method that allows the most absorption is the sublingual application of the oil (under the tongue). Take your drops in front of a mirror (to make sure you get the correct dose) place them under your tongue and keep them there for 2-3 minutes before swallowing the remaining oil with a drink. We recommend following it with breakfast or dinner to further increase absorption (and to get rid of the taste in the back of your throat). Combine it with other CBD products like hemp tea or an e-liquid for an even stronger effect.
There’s no definite amount that’s appropriate for everyone, but the ratio of CBD to THC will indicate how psychoactive the product is and if it’s legal in your state. The more CBD compared with THC, the less of a high, and vice versa. “Managing psychoactivity is key to successful cannabis therapy,” says Lee. “Amounts should be made clear on the label and lab-certified so people know what’s helping them and what’s not.”
CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat. More study in humans is needed in this area to substantiate the claims of CBD proponents about pain control.
In one survey, parents of children who suffer from treatment-resistant epilepsy and use CBD were asked about the benefits. 19 parents were included, 84% of which said that CBD reduced the frequency of seizures. Two parents said that CBD completely resolved seizures. Parents also reported improved alertness, sleep, and mood. Some side effects were drowsiness and fatigue [54].
Connie, I was happy to read your comment & recommendation. I have found CBD to be extremely helpful also. My main issue with it is that I have bought from 3 different companies, and now I just bought Plus CBD because it was the only brand available in my home town, and I didn’t want to wait for the mail order. Unfortunately, in my inexperience, I thought I I was buying a high potency, and now find it is LOW, and very expensive for that. However, my story sounds very similar to yours, cancer, chemo killed my veins, used Norco for years, and now my body has VERY poor muscle tone. I will continue on, though, and wanted you to know that I was very encouraged by your inspirational story. I saw my primary MD today, and she was excited about my progress & success with CBD, especially since I have discontinued 3 medications. Now, to be able to get in good shape, and lose weight like you have also. THANK YOU!
They have loads of positive customer reviews on their website, including recommendations from a prominent UK/EU CBD user Facebook group. Even though Provacan legally does not advertise their CBD oils as having medicinal effects, one customer (by the name of “Seb”),  noted that he/she use the 6% oil for chronic pain, and after 2 weeks was able to cut their prescription meds by almost 50%.
Online Retailers: Most CBD oils are sold through online retailers. These establishments tend to have the widest product range, and many offer free doorstep delivery. Online retailers also frequently post product reviews, allowing buyers to compare different oils based on customer experiences to determine which is best for them. These reviews can also be used to evaluate the retailer based on customer service, delivery, and product quality.

Always striving to source full-spectrum products (rich in other synergetic cannabinoids like CBDa), when Love Hemp launched, it focused on bringing fine organic hemp oils from the EU, particularly from the Czech Republic, into the UK market. For a while, they partnered with Endoca, who allowed them to source organic hemp material from mainland Europe which they would white label under their premium brand in the UK. Later on, when cannabis legislation changed in the USA, they tested Colorado-grown organic hemp from a company called Folium and, because of their guaranteed high quality, they decided this would become the principal source of their CBD hemp oils. All Love Hemp products are THC free (below the 0.2% allowed by UK law), non-addictive, non-toxic and third-party tested for purity.

As mentioned above, CBDPure is a natural oil extracted through cold pressing and CO2 procedures from Cannabis sativa. Specialists have identified over 80 compounds known as cannabinoids. Their research so far showed that CBD is the predominant cannabinoid, accounting for over 40% of the cannabinoids concentration. It is also the most beneficial for human health, at least from the cannabinoids studied so far.
CBD is a compound that can be found in cannabis plants. While CBD is an ingredient in marijuana, CBD oil can typically have the health benefits of marijuana without the psychoactive effects that THC cause. If you live in a state where CBD oil is legal and you’re hoping to reap the potential health benefits of marijuana without getting high, CBD oil might be for you. Choose from a variety of ways to consume it and experiment with dosages until you find the right one. Try using CBD oil to naturally relieve pain, reduce anxiety, and improve your overall well being.
This oil is available in concentrations ranging from 250mg to 5,000mg. Prices fall between $0.05 and $0.08 per mg, making the product very inexpensive compared to similar oils and tinctures from other brands. Customers who order the drops directly from CBDistillery may return the product for a full refund. Free shipping is available for U.S. orders of $75 or more.

CBD Isolates/Concentrates: Anyone familiar with smoking hash or other cannabis concentrates like wax and BHO will be no stranger to this delivery method. Simply sprinkle some into a vaporizer or water pipe, ignite, inhale, and enjoy! We find that this option is useful for individuals looking to elevate their regular consumption of CBD-rich cannabis flowers or other smokable herbs.


Start by taking the recommended dose on the product’s label, which is the minimum dose. Allow one week to see how you respond to it. If you feel that you need to increase your dose, take up to 50% more of what you’ve taken during the first week for another week. Repeat this process until you find your ideal dose. If you’ve been advised to take a specific dose of a strong CBD oil, check the product description to see how many mg of CBD are per drop.
Plus CBD oil is one of the most trusted and reputable brands in the industry. They have an extensive product line of full spectrum CBD products that are available online and in many local stores through their retail program. They also have flavor choices for their sprays and drops. This makes their products popular with those who don't like the "earthy" taste of unflavored CBD drops.
There are more than 80 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, with THC being the primary one, followed by CBD. However, in the hemp plant, which is a different strain of the species Cannabis sativa, CBD is the main active ingredient, and THC is barely present, making its use and legality more widespread. The reason that CBD is such an effective form of support for human health is due to the body’s endogenous cannabinoid system. This regulatory structure of the body has millions of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system, which react not only to plant-derived cannabinoids (such as hemp and marijuana) but also to natural cannabinoids produced within our body. When hemp oil is used and processed by the body, it is effectively boosting the function of the endocannabinoid system, helping our body regulate itself in many different ways.
Hi, I had ovarian cancer stage 2 and went to do chemotherapy for 16 times in 2014.  It came back last year 2016 but I did not do chemotherapy or radiation therapy as suggested by the doctor.  I am taking hormone therapy at the moment.  I would like to use cannabis oil but which one and how much CBD and how much THC should I take for ovarian cancer? Can anyone give some idea?.  Thank you very much.
Recently I have experimented with vaped THC marijuana flowers which gives me about 5 hours of better-than-Tramadol pain relief from a single puff.  The accompanying high is very mild, like an ounce or two of wine.  This may be working for me due to the THC reaching my blood stream directly without having to go through my liver.  In any case, the pain relief from vaping greatly exceeds the pain relief from taking essentially the same dose orally, even though the oral dose is more intoxicating.  I’m not sure I will be able to completely stop using Tramadol this way, but this seems to offer a hopeful path.  FWIW correctly dosing vaped cannabis is very tricky, best to get some coaching from an experienced vaper otherwise you will initially grossly overdose which will not kill you but may not be to your liking.  I have also tried vaping CBD-only hemp flowers with essentially no results, would be interested to hear from others about their experiences with that…
Unfortunately due to the disappointing and down right inaccurate position of the federal government in classifying Cannabis as a schedule one drug, most research institutions risk federal funding if they conduct real research on Cannabis. This has dramatically limited the potential for real research by real scientists to be conducted. That research is critical to better understanding the multitude of therapeutic effects of the various chemical constituents found in Cannabis.

It’s not surprising that Provacan was voted number one on our updated list of best CBD oils in the UK. Their potent CBD formula and cutting-edge extraction technology has allowed them to produce a product that is literally second to none. Furthermore, Provacan is backed by a powerhouse in the cannabis research industry, known as CiiTECH, which allows them to constantly improve their CBD extraction based on scientific findings and results.
I have severe neuropathy in both feet and legs. I just got the CBD oil and I am interested in learning if anyone out there has had any success with this. I know each case and pain levels are different. Just would like to see some positive remarks from people who suffer with it. I am not looking for a cure just need an update on someone who took and it helped. I already know there is no cure. I need help with the pain. Thank you.
