Along with its better-known counterpart, THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical that produces the marijuana high), CBD is one of more than 400 compounds found in the oils of cannabis plant species, which include marijuana and hemp. Unlike THC, CBD will not make you high. That said, this doesn’t mean CBD is not at all psychoactive, as many assert, says Jahan Marcu, Ph.D., director of experimental pharmacology and behavior at the International Research Center on Cannabis and Mental Health in New York City: “CBD does change cognition. It affects mood, which is why people take it for anxiety. And some find that it makes them more alert.”
While very few clinical trials have explored the pain-relieving effects of CBD oil, a report published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2018 examined the use of a variety of cannabis-based medicines and found they might be of some benefit in the treatment of chronic neuropathic pain. A type of pain triggered by damage to the somatosensory system (i.e., the system responsible for processing sensory stimuli), neuropathic pain often occurs in people with conditions like diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
This means, in effect, that CBD and cannabinoids increase natural endorphins. So instead of causing dependence and addiction like opioids, CBD and cannabinoids do the opposite — so much so that CBD has proven valuable for countering narcotic and cocaine addiction. From a medicinal standpoint, the fact that CBD has the potential to relieve pain without causing euphoria, intoxication, or addiction makes it an intriguing therapeutic option — it has high potential for being at least a partial solution to the current opioid epidemic.
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.

This is the story of our 5 year old Charlotte Figi. Charlotte suffered from Dravet Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy found in children. From the time she was 2 she was having over 300 seizures a week which drastically affected her ability to learn, speak or even walk. She was unable to keep up with her twin sister. She was catatonic and nothing the doctors could do for her helped. All of their “medicines” had no effect on her condition and if anything they made her worse. Some of them almost killing her.After exhausting all other treatments, her we turned to the internet to see what alternative treatments may be available. To our surprise we found a certain strain of cannabis from Dr MARK DONALD (the strain was later named Charlottes Web in her honor) was specifically helping children with Dravet Syndrome. So we made the decision to give cannabis oil to Charlotte and from the first dose we noticed results. The 300+ seizures she was experiencing each week was reduced to only 1. we have been amazed with the results and are so happy to get our daughter back . All thanks goes to Dr Mark Donald for providing us with the Cannabis Oil. WE VOTE FOR DR MARK DONALD 100%
Multiple Sclerosis is a condition in which the immune system mistakenly reacts abhorrently to healthy cells and organs. Also known as an autoimmune disease, multiple sclerosis causes reoccurring spasms and enduring pain, for those affected. Although the effect is modest, CBD oil, acting as an anticonvulsant, can help in mitigating the number of spasms caused, as well as the resulting pain.
A review published in 2017 in the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology described how CBD may work to protect the hippocampus — the part of the brain responsible for several important functions, such as learning, memory and navigation — during times of stress, and may also help prevent brain-cell destruction that results from schizophrenia. Another 2017 review published in the journal Annals of Palliative Medicine summarized a handful of studies that suggest cannabis oils containing THC or CBD, or both, may help with chronic pain management, but the mechanism is unclear.
CBD oil is also used by some people who have cancer. A few studies in mice have shown a reduction of cancerous tumors. But most human studies have involved research into the role of CBD oil in managing pain related to cancer and cancer treatment. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has pointed to CBD as a possible option for relieving symptoms caused by chemotherapy.
The second method of pain relief centers around the damage you do when you work out. When you strength train, you create micro-tears in your muscles, which is why you feel sore as you heal. Once your immune cells detect damage, they release inflammatory mediators in order to repair the tissue. CBD, though has the ability to limit the release of some proinflammatory signals, thereby helping with pain without thwarting the healing entirely, Gerdeman explains.
I thought maybe I would give CBD a try to help with some issues I have been having for quite awhile such as lower back pain, headaches, and trouble sleeping. After only two days of using 1ml morning and night of the 500mg I noticed a big change in how I felt. Now that I am almost a month into using I know that it really does work. I sleep so much better and have a far greater amount of energy every day. Also, my back pain isn’t near what it used. I feel great. I highly recommend giving this stuff a try.
A 2016 review published in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research found evidence that CBD is effective in treating migraine and irritable bowel syndrome, which are related to ME/CFS. It also stated that some cannabis-based treatments appeared effective for fibromyalgia. The authors stated that CBD is often preferable to patients because it doesn't include the high and other effects of THC.
I have been using the 1000mg tincture and find that it is very effective at taming anxiety once I found the dosage that worked for me. I started small at 1 drop 3x per day because I had never used CBD before and found that 4 drops 3x a day is currently appropriate to get the results I am looking for. I am glad I found Medterra. Before making a CBS purchase, I did tons of research and felt that they were one of the best in the market. Customer Service response time was same day when I sent them a question.
Nabilone (Cesamet) (Figure 1), is a synthetic dimethylheptyl analogue of THC (British Medical Association 1997) that displays greater potency and prolonged half-life. Serum levels peak in 1–4 hours (Lemberger et al 1982). It was also primarily developed as an anti-emetic in chemotherapy, and was recently re-approved for this indication in the USA. Prior case reports have noted analgesic effects in case reports in neuropathic pain (Notcutt et al 1997) and other pain disorders (Berlach et al 2006). Sedation and dysphoria were prominent sequelae. An RCT of nabilone in 41 post-operative subjects actually documented exacerbation of pain scores after thrice daily dosing (Beaulieu 2006) (Table 1). An abstract of a study of 82 cancer patients on nabilone claimed improvement in pain levels after varying periods of follow-up compared to patients treated without this agent (Maida 2007). However, 17 subjects dropped out, and the study was neither randomized nor controlled, and therefore is not included in Table 1.

Chronic pain is a major issue in the health sector and millions of people rely on pain medication to go about their normal lives, but synthetic painkillers are known for causing side effects that make them unsafe for long-term use. Alternative pain treatments like hemp oil have shown a lot of promise for people with injury-related pain, arthritis, and other types of chronic pain.
Other potential side effects include low blood pressure, lightheadedness, and drowsiness, but these have typically only occurred in patients who have exceeded doses of 1,500 mg daily for a period of 4 weeks or more; far more than the average person will need take on a daily basis for chronic pain symptoms. (In fact, the majority of CBD users claim they find an effective dose to be anywhere between 10 and 40 mg daily).
Most human studies of CBD have been done on people who have seizures, and the FDA recently approved the first CBD-based drug, Epidiolex, for rare forms of epilepsy. Clinical trials for other conditions are promising, but tiny. In one Brazilian study published in 2011 of people with generalized social anxiety disorder, for example, taking a 600-mg dose of CBD (higher than a typical dose from a tincture) lessened discomfort more than a placebo, but only a dozen people were given the pill.
The rosemary acts as a natural antioxidant preservative. It also supplies terpenoids, including camphene, pinene, and limonene, that support a healthy inflammatory response and promote relaxation.* Hops is a very close cousin of hemp and many of the compounds in hops are complementary to those in hemp. The hops in Hemp Oil + provides a source of the terpenoids humulon and lupulon that are synergistic with the phytocannabinoids in support of the ECS.*
In an interview with the Herald Times Online, Dr. Gary Gettelfinger, who practices out of the Indiana University Health Pain Center, said he is thrilled with Indiana’s new law allowing CBD to be legally sold in Indiana. “I’m excited for my patients,” Gettelfinger said. “The fact of the matter is, (CBD) is working, and nothing good ever came without a fight.”
Do not confuse cannabis oil extracts(marijuana) with hemp seed oil, which is the oil expeller pressed from hemp seed and not chemically extracted from cannabis leaves and flowers.

Hi Lauren I've just started today with 250mg cbd oil. I'm starting low to see what happens. I've nerve damage across buttocks from a laminectomy. I've not been able to sit for 5 years. I've recently started with a muscle spasm in my left buttock and the muscle above is painful. It is only the first day, also tried a cbd night time tea as well. Do change in muscle pain so tight on my left hand side. How long before felt it starting to work please. I'm trying not to expect changes straightaway. I also take 1100mg gabapentin and 30mg amitriptyline and I hate both of them - they both can cause muscle tightness affecting the nerve. Thank you Lyn
He described an experiment that was done in Brazil in which a 200mg/day dosage of CBD was added to the anticonvulsants epilepsy patients were currently taking. Over the course of several months only 1 of the 7 patients showed no improvement; three became seizure-free; one experienced only one or two seizures, and two experienced reduced severity and occurrence of seizures.
When advised that a medication reduction was coming in late 2016 for 2017, I immediately began researching alternative ways to fight non stop, lifelong, severe pain from spine surgeries. CBD oil from the hemp plant (no thc whatsoever) was “legal” in NC. “Kratom” was also a possible pain management source. Unfortunately, after being reduced 80 percent in medication at the start of 2017 I knew I ( and all PPM’s) was in serious trouble. After trying several different suppliers of “kratom” and different suppliers of CBD oil with varying strengths, adequate pain management could not be achieved to live the life I have led with 23 years of an adequate opiate based medication. I do still attend the same pain management specialist, one of two “specialists” in 23 years after back surgeries left me writhing in continuous pain.Never having served my fellow man in the military, I did serve for 14 years, always “on call” 24 hours a day in the local all volunteer community fire department I would have never believed that the health officials and agencies in this country would have EVER left so many people/patients squirming and literally left swinging in the wind with no representation….at all. Now approaching the beginning of 2019, NOTHING has improved for documented pain management patients that have only positive, beneficial use of a personally tailored dosage of opiate medication as the last failsafe for some 10 million pain management patients, To be reduced so drastically without ANY diversion or abuse of the last, known and available effective therapy medication known to man for pain management. Millions of patients nationwide are left to suffer needlessly and without ANY proof that we, the PPM patients have fueled increased overdose from multiple substance abuse. Thanks DEA!!!!!!!!
For years I have struggled with anxiety at times severe anxiety that led to panic attacks and the inability to function in everyday life. Ive been off and on anxiety meds over the years but have always hated the idea of relying on prescription medication. CBD oil of 1000mg has changed my life No more racing thoughts pounding heart or feeling like I cant catch my breath. I take a little bit every night before bed and occasionally in the daytime when experiencing high stress. Now I am completely off my anxiety AND sleep medication Its easy to take theres no taste and have experienced no side effects. After reading others reviews I decided to give the product a try and Im so glad I did
When you are purchasing CBD Oil Products, you have two options: Full Spectrum CBD or Isolated (regular) CBD. Full Spectrum CBD, as Hemp Oil, contains every Cannabinoid present in the Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) plant. This means Cannabidiol, Cannabicyclol, Tetrahydrocannabivarin, and Cannbichromevinaric acid, to name a few. In Full Spectrum CBD Oil, there is nothing held back or left out. On the other side, CBD Isolate contains pure CBD compound, which has a more flexible legal status as well no taste, color or strong odor as Full Spectrum CBD Oil.
The glutamatergic system is integral to development and maintenance of neuropathic pain, and is responsible for generating secondary and tertiary hyperalgesia in migraine and fibromyalgia via NMDA mechanisms (Nicolodi et al 1998). Thus, it is important to note that cannabinoids presynaptically inhibit glutamate release (Shen et al 1996), THC produces 30%–40% reduction in NMDA responses, and THC is a neuroprotective antioxidant (Hampson et al 1998). Additionally, cannabinoids reduce hyperalgesia via inhibition of calcitonin gene-related peptide (Richardson et al 1998a). As for Substance P mechanisms, cannabinoids block capsaicin-induced hyperalgesia (Li et al 1999), and THC will do so at sub-psychoactive doses in experimental animals (Ko and Woods 1999). Among the noteworthy interactions with opiates and the endorphin/enkephalin system, THC has been shown to stimulate beta-endorphin production (Manzanares et al 1998), may allow opiate sparing in clinical application (Cichewicz et al 1999), prevents development of tolerance to and withdrawal from opiates (Cichewicz and Welch 2003), and rekindles opiate analgesia after a prior dosage has worn off (Cichewicz and McCarthy 2003). These are all promising attributes for an adjunctive agent in treatment of clinical chronic pain states.
