Do you use CBD for your health?

CBD oil is legal in all 50 states because it is made from the hemp plant. CBC oil does not contain mind altering THC chemical found in cannabis.

 

I recently discovered the value of taking a few drops of CBD oil under my tongue prior to going to bed. As a result of using about 5 mg., I go to sleep quicker and have less pain due to arthritis next day. 

 

I was wondering if other AARP members are using CBD oil for their health? 

For those who do use CBD oil, what has been your results?

Hi!  I found this information really interesting.  Is this something that requires a prescription from my doctor, and can it be found in a regular pharmacy?  Thanks for the info!!!

You don't need a prescription from a doctor or go to a pharmacy to get CBD. The best way to get it is on-line through a reliable company that manufactures high-quality CBD-infused products. I have been getting my supplies from Delta Botanicals (www.deltacbd.com) since 2018. They have a variety of products (tinctures, gummies, honey, cooking oil etc.) at reasonable prices with free shipping. From my experience, a good starting dose is 10 mg -30 mg CBD per day and slowly increase it to 100 mg to 200 mg CBD per day depending on the severity of your condition. Such a self-titration method will allow you to reach the required optimum dose for your situation. If you are taking the oral tincture, it is important to administer it sublingually since the oromucosal lining,

with its rich blood supply, enhances the bioavailability of CBD to your system.

 

Good Luck!

Yes, I use the CBD products as per directed by the physician. I was injured in an accident & mussels were too weak, then my doctor suggested CBD products intake. For 1 year I am using these products for medical purposes.

CBD and ZOLOFT:

 

Anxiety, Stress, Depression and Social Isolation caused by the current COVID-19 Pandemic has resulted in an unexpected shortage of the antidepressant drug Zoloft and its generic counterpart, Sertraline. FDA placed Zoloft and Sertraline on its “SHORTAGE LIST" on May 29,2020. Zoloft is manufactured by Pfizer and Sertraline by generic pharmaceutical companies such as Lupin, Accord Healthcare and InvaGen Pharmaceuticals. Zoloft as well as Sertraline are used to treat anxiety, stress, depression, OCD, PTSD etc. experienced by a large segment of the population.

 

How do we counter this situation? A simple answer is CBD. CBD could be a viable alternative to reduce anxiety and stress and is currently used by people all over the world. And there is no shortage of CBD in the U.S. or elsewhere. As I posted earlier, I get my CBD-infused products from a reliable source called Delta Botanicals. They have ample supplies of high quality oral tinctures, gummies, cooking oil, topicals etc. at reasonable price.

Recently, I bought 1 g. of pure CBD powder for about $40 (including shipping cost) and dissolved it in 20 g. alcohol, which makes an approximate 5% solution. I started taking 0.5 ml, which is about 25 mg. CBD, once in my morning coffee and another in a cup of milk before I go to bed. There was no noticeable effect until I increased the dosage to 75 mg. twice a day. Then it seemed to reduce my pain, maybe, 25%, and improve my sleep. So, I found a cheaper source and ordered 3.5 g. for $69, which I should get by the end of the month.

 

This is the first seller:

 

https://www.thecbdistillery.com/product/99-cbd-isolate-powder-from-hemp/

 

I will tell you the second seller, after I have tested the product.

 

I notice that there are Chinese sellers on Alibaba who sell it much cheaper than American Companies but I have never used Alibaba before.

It's important to make sure you purchase Certified CBD. I order mine from Green Compass Online.

I have been taking it for 3 months now and it has been a game changer for me.

I have been using CBD for the past two years with great success to relieve my pain, anxiety, stress, bloating etc. The products I like best are manufactured and sold by a Baltimore-based company called Delta Botanicals. Delta has high-quality, CBD-infused products ranging from oral tinctures, gummies, cooking oil, topicals to pet products. Delta was fecently featured by AARP. Watch the AARP video on CBD: https://www.aarp.org/health/drugs-supplements/info-2019/cbd-oil-beyond-the-hype.html that includes parts of video supplied by Delta.

Never heard of this CBD before. What exactly is it, if not another dangerous drug? My husband could certainly use something to help him rest at night, but he takes other drugs for  health conditions.

CBD is a natural product and is not dangerous to your  health.  Discovered in 1940, CBD is derived mainly from hemp and is non-psychoactive unlike its cousin THC that is associated with marijuana. CBD is produced from the hemp plant by a supercritical CO2 extraction process without the aid of any additional chemicals. It is usually diluted further with carrier oils such as coconut oil for the end use. CBD is a natural remedy for many health issues such as chronic pain and anxiety. This is confirmed by several scientific studies published in recent literature. There are negligible side-effects reported by CBD users. Please read this excellent WHO Report published in 2018 for comprehensive information on CBD and its uses: https://www.who.int/medicines/access/controlled-substances/CannabidiolCriticalReview.pdf. During the public hearing organized by FDA on May 31, 2019, Lisa Gill, an investigative reporter with Consumer Reports, made a presentaion on the current status of CBD and its use by the public in the US. This is defintely worth reading.

 

Finally, John Bunyan's main character, Christian, in Pilgrim's Progress was not aware of CBD at that time (17th century). If he had, he would have used it and made his pilgrimage less tortuous than the thorny path he took from the "City of Destruction" to the "Celestial City" to attain his salvation!

In my previous post, I missed the link to the Lisa Gill presentation at the FDA Hearing in May 2019. Here it is: https://www.fda.gov/media/128473/download

This package summarizes the results of a national survey of 4355 adult Americans and their views on CBD. This is an excellent compilation of very useful and timely data for the public.

Yes.  I have had RA pretty severe.  Nsaids on a regular basis aren't good.  Been on all immunosuppresants.  Drops at night really help me to relax and sleep.
