Who should use CBD?
Hundreds of videos have been released online to show the positive effects of CBD derivatives on several illnesses and ailments, including Dravet Syndrome and Lennox Gastaut Syndrome, which have been known to be unresponsive to typical anti-seizure medication. For some, CBD helped ease symptoms associated with seizures, shorten the seizures themselves, or stop them altogether. Epidiolex was recently approved by the FDA as the first ever cannabis-derived medication for such issues.
CBD oil can easily treat more than just seizures, however. It has been used for those that suffer from anxiety disorders, insomnia, and chronic pain. Although more studies are needed to gauge the long-term effects of CBD use in humans, studies show that it can lower neuropathic pain and inflammation caused by arthritis, which is one of the most difficult pains to treat!
According to Dr. Aimee Shunney, “CBD changed my life… Personally, it helped my long-time-middle-of-the-night-insomniac husband sleep well again. It also allowed me to get back to sleep easier, something I had not done well since my son was born almost 10 years ago. Over time, I also found it improved my ability to react less to stressful situations…”
You should always ask your doctor before starting new medications or supplements. Each body is unique and what you need may be different than what another person needs. CBD can come with some side effects, including nausea, fatigue, and irritability. Similar to grapefruit juice, CBD can increase the level of medications that are in your blood, such as coumadin, so be sure to consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are on any current medications. However, you cannot overdose on CBD and it is completely safe when bought from verified sellers… like us!
