This is an ex rugby player, full of energy who moves and is busy all day. He should not be losing muscle mass. No one can answer our questions or even nudge us in the right direction. A nudge from you would be very much appreciated. When have we crossed a line? He needs that muscle mass to take him through the rest of his life, his muscle mass at the time of the incident in is what saved his life without doubt..
Should the same thing happen today I know I would lose him. Any thought please xx. Hi Neva, Thank you for your comment. You situation is really complicated! I would definitely consult with a Hematologist, ideally one who is comfortable with cannabis therapeutics, so they can see this issue from all sides. This might be hard to find but hopefully you can connect with one.
What about Cardiovascular effects of Marijuana? There so many different opinions and contradictions in research online i dont even know what to listen to. And because its so politically polarized with politicians and special interest Big Pharma? For example, some studies may imply cannabis causes some or other ill consequence but, if you actually read the study carefully, the cannabis and the ill consequence are just randomly associated, and have no causal relationship to each other whatsoever, and may even be caused by the same root causes.
Thanks for your reply. I agree and there needs to be a lot more non byas research especially for medical marijuana patients that are concerned about there heart and health. It would be nice to know the real effects and what we are dealing with. Thank you very much for sharing this great article about Medical Cannabis. You are most welcome to take a look at this article, about the same topic: Thank you for this blog.
It is interesting as well as informative. Does one go to the pharmacy to pick up your med? Once certified by a physician, patients typically go to a dispensary to pick up their medical cannabis. As a Canadian I am pleased to report the legality of using cannabis is confidently striding into the near future.
There is some interesting evidence along these lines, for example: I really appreciate this piece. As a SICI fellow my focus is on solving the problem of misinformation and missing information and chaos of regulating a highly politicized controlled substance. There are huge gaps in our knowledge and credible analysis of the information that is available. Do you have any suggestions of who I should reach out to? My email is kht student. I can help but not via mechanism of response to comments on blog; please reach out to me via my website petergrinspoon.
Hello Peter, I am currently writing a research paper on the benefits of medical marijuana and was wondering if you could provide me with a few reliable sources, or maybe a list of benefits?
Hi Roberto, this is a good resource: Is it true that marijuana can actually help to loss weight? I have been reading this marijuana strain here in and all it says that it can help you relax and chill you physically and mentally.
Some of them might even help you with depression and anxiety but this issue regarding losing weight when using marijuana is just fascinating. Can you enlighten me with some new information about this? There is some research along those lines. This article sums it up. Hi Daniele, Just to offer my experience.
I started taking Full Extract Cannabis Oil 9 months ago this has THC but the psychoactive effects can be avoided by weaning on very slowly, very very very slowly with tiny tiny micro doses I hate the psychoactive effects. I am 58 and have been obese for about 10 years. Slowly gently but relentlessly downwards. I still today cant believe it because i had genuinely given up, 58 years old and very fat with sore knees and nothing I did diligently might I add changed a thing, in fact everything I tried resulted in an increased weight after the fact.
Cannabis has made me lose a huge amount of weight and I am still consistently gently heading downwards. Please note, I researched strains and studied for months and months before taking the oil, I grew my own plants and made my own Full Extract Oil with a clean solvent ethanol using the Rick Simpson method which is safest for home makers, except for his solvents which are not clean, so I used his method with rice cooker but I used my own choice of a clean solvent which is ethanol food grade.
If you are contemplating taking this oil you need to self educate, you need to understand that the oil has THC in it and you need to wean on super slowly to use it without the horrible psychoactive feelings that the THC bring if you have not weaned on slowly, and you need to be patient once you start. Might I suggest that you start with a tincture as I did until I was no longer scared of it, tincture is not as strong and is a good prelude to starting on the oil.
You need to grow your own so you know what you are taking.. You need to control what you are taking from beginning to end. I suggest an Indica, not Sativa as the Sativas can have an anxiety effect, well it did with me while the Indica strains are more relaxing, but the dose needs to start and remain tiny, you are not trying to treat cancer, you are not increasing your dose, you are just feeding your endocannabinoid receptors with a steady micro dose 3 times a day and your body will do the rest.
Jorge Cervantes wrote a Medical Cannabis book that will assist in you growing your own indoors or out, everything from beginning to end. About 4 plants should do it, find a safe place to grow them indoors under light or outdoors if you have a secluded spot. Cervantes also gives recipes for tincture and other edibles, but eventually you should progress to the oil using the rice cooker method EXACTLY as Rick Simpson says but with a clean solvent.
My doc is unaware of my cannabis taken orally but very impressed with my weight loss which he thinks is down to diet and exercise. PS Smoking does not achieve anything, we are talking tincture or full extract oil taken orally xx.
The US government is adamant that there are none. If you, Harvard, are saying that there are benefits, how is it legal to keep the classification the same? What is going on here? It needs to change. Also, this may be a question that you may not be able to, or want to answer, but, does the classification have anything to do with giving up the monopoly in regards to research?
Is it about the money? Something is very wrong here. A complete comprehensive article I will say. Looking at the benefits it can offer, it should be legalised. Thanks for the share. I am 46 and have suffered from migraines for nearly 25 years. They have become less frequent a few per month instead of a few per week , but harder to control with rescue medications such as relpax.
For 2 months in a row now I have had to take a steroid to get rid of the headache which had lasted for more than 5 days. I have tried several preventative medications over the years lyrica, topomax, Elavil, botox, Effexor, occipital nerve block injections etc , with fleeting success. I also suffer from chronic neck tension and pain resulting from disc bulges caused by a previous accident which exacerbates the headaches. I live in Florida and have been told that I automatically qualify for a medical marijuana card as I am a breast cancer survivor 3 years in remission.
I work full-time, have 2 small children, and am pursuing my MBA. I need to be fully functioning. I am MOST concerned about any contraindications that it might have on Tamoxifen that I have been prescribed to take for 7 more years.
Not sure that I can handle the anxiety of wondering, what if…. He is 55 years old. There is a huge amount of anecdotal evidence that it helps people, certainly with their symptoms, but it really needs to be studied more rigorously. I took my life in my own hands cold turkey off 20 years of pills. Maybe not the smartest thing to do however with weed I did it. Not cured but I can manage my life with weed and probiotics. I have my brain back. My pain is way down. Weed is life changing and healing and hopeful!!
Glad that you found relief from your symptoms. Certainly, you are not alone, which is why doctors and patients need to become better educated on this topic, and more research needs to be done!
There are many different ways to consume medical marijuana: Actually, several studies have compared the lungs of a marijuana smoker to those of a tobacco user, and the marijuana smokers have had a much higher lung capacity.
Some studies have also showed that repetitive marijuana use can eventually slow the effects of tobacco. THC in marijuana has been proven to bind to the brain cells that relate to, and control excitability and relaxation. All Cannabis should be grown organically, never have the males removed and the object is to gain as many of the cannabinoids as possible to bring about whole health.
How the oils and tinctures are made are very important and given the USA is getting it completely wrong and are now years behind what we in the Cannabis compassion suppliers are finding and now know. There is absolutely no health or safety risk using Cannabis from conception to the grave.
Anyone and everyone should be able to grow the plant and use it as they please as you should any other herb or vegetable, it should not be on a drugs list and it should not be under the control of drug companies or the medical profession.
My father is Dr. If THC is removed, is there pain relief? In other words — is there pain relief and PTSD help etc. CBD, another cannabinoid, does have pain controlling effects as well, without the psychoactive effects. Thanks for the interesting article. It is a very emotive subject. As I see as Governments etc can make money from medical marijuana then they will take it on board. It is a nonsense that the large pharma countries are legally killing people and it is only recently that many of us are waking up to natural medicine.
Take the large alcohol manufacturers, lover the world over by Governments and their paymasters as it generates so much revenue for them. This is despite the devastation that this drug causes to some many families the world over. Tell me please, is there any statistics on how the number of traffic accidents has changed after some states of the USA have allowed the use of marijuana? It would be interesting to know statistics on cars and motorcycles.
This study from NIH National Institute of Health shows impairment but not as dangerous as alcohol which is a good summary of marijuana in general… https: There are studies on this exact topic! This is a recent article looking at two studies. I find more weight in the study conducted by AJPH, in part because it is more extensive. Of course driving impaired is not to be condoned and this is a topic worth researching. Information on drugs interaction are rare. Do you know the intersections with new oral anticoagulants such as Apixaban?
One of my patient with ALS got a recurrent pulmonary embolism on treatment with apixaban and oil cannabis. The case you cite could just be treatment failure and have nothing to do with the cannabis…. Two anticoagulants would cancel each other out, so to speak?
Cannabis oil extraction is advancing quite dramatically as well. The healing properties of these oils can even be recombined to specifically treat different types of ailments. What is needed, is more information to identify which compound from the plant that is aiding their specific ailment. Genetic profiles of strains are even being mapped to aid researchers in identifying which may best be helpful to patients in the future. I had nausea and diarrhea which I contributed to the withdrawal.
My doctor prescribed anti nausea medication. I stoped taking the CBD oil and in a day symptoms disappeared. I waited a few days and took a capsule and the nausea returned. I have been able to cut my MS Contin dose to less than half, still way too pain but am afraid to go back up or try CBD oil again. I was really hoping to stop taking morphine. I actually have been able to decrease my morphine dosage to 2 times a day instead of 3 due to considerably less pain.
I have also stopped taking every oral prescription med except the morphine. My morphine dosage was only 15 mg 3 times which is considered low. I sleep better, feel calmer, am not cold all the time and I hope to be able to discontinue the morphine.
I live in a state that has legalized marijuana so I hope to grow some low THC to harvest my own oil. Can this be due to the CBD Oil? Great thing to check out. I cough for a couple hours and my throat feels itchy every time I take a dose. I love how CBD oil helps me with the pain and insomnia associated with 2 close-together car wrecks last year, but sometimes the stinging sensation in my throat keeps me up all night coughing and clearing my throat, which defeats the purpose!
That would be a very unusual side effect of CBD. You can be allergic to specific plants. I began taking CBD to ensure I do not have another seizure.. The side effects are decreased with time of use, but still occure. How many drops do you take? I used CBD Oil from a reputable company and my pain was much worse. It may be good for most but some of us have issues with it. Yes it relaxed me, but after each use the pain the next day increased. Rosie, sorry to hear you had this experience, but we appreciate you sharing it with us.
Everyone and every body is different and it sounds like you did the right thing for yourself. After using the cbd oil i started having chest pain in my right chest. The pain spreed to other parts of my body. Thanking CBD oil was safe i did not give it much thought.
I quit using it. And the pain ouit. Every time I tried it the pain came back. I gave some to my son and He had pain In The places as I had it. The pain was so sever that I could hardly breath. Would have rather died than have to live with the pain. I know that everybody has a diffrent metabolism but just wondering if any body else had the same experance? Meaning particles are broken down small enough to pass through your liver and you reap better results.
I have been in chronic pain for different issues since an automobile accident and I must say since May I have not only been taking my oils buy I now putting hemp into my like with hemp hearts and hemp based shakes. Which is allowing me to get a balanced omega 3,6,9 and bunch of amino acids are body needs. Put hemp in your step and get healthy with out the hi. My name us Norina Lelii friend me on face book would love to educate more on this marvelous plant.
How much do you take. No markings on the dropper. I dropper full or 2? I have the Green Labs Cannabinol isolate mg. Everyone is different, and everyone has different health issues to consider. We recommend starting small! I started taking CBD in a tincture to help with depression and anxiety, as well as to help balancing my hormones.
So far it feels great, and my mood is much more positive. I am hoping it will continue to be effective. My son just started taking CBD for same reason. He informed me yesterday that he seemed more hyper more energy , does anyone know if this is common or where I can get more information on this?
I am looking for a CBD Oil that will help me with similar symptoms as you described. What brand are you using? I would like to try their product.
I wonder if I would get the same symptoms if I took it a second time…say about 6 hour later. I believe I had some relief in my arthritic knees and would like to continue.
I had severe arthritis pain in my knees for over 25 years. I could literally tell you when the weather was about to change, how bad it would be and how long it would last…. I was way more accurate than the local weather man. After taking Glucosamine Chondroitin for 2 months, I am no longer able to tell you anything about the weather because the pain is completely gone! At first I could hardly believe this could be true, that a herbal capsule could completely heal my arthritis.
What upsets more is that none of the many doctors that i visited ever mentioned it! I too am now trying CBD oil for pain from a spinal injury and no negative reactions so far and the benefits are incredible no pain. Also, I would try changing the supplier and purchase only the best product that you can find. I had a negative experience with one supplier where their product gave me a bad headache, I changed suppliers little more expensive and the headaches stopped.
I had arthritis in my knee for eight years before I was told by a friend to try cod liver oil capsules. After about a month the pain was much less. Before I could hardly walk. I have a negative reaction to CBD the first time I took it and need to know how to determine whether it is the drug or the suspension.
This article gives no info as to where to have our hemp products tested. My side effect feels like going cold turkey off an antidepressant.
Thank you very much! I had major spinal reconstruction surgery — pain after surgery was intense with tge nerves coming back alive. I started taking cbd pm So I could sleep — wow — I can sleep 6 hours pain free. I am using cbd drops during the day — 3 drops and no more narco.
I am breaking Out with a rash on my legs and feet. Could the cbd be causing the rash. I want to keep taking tge cbd — it works, just wonder if it can cause a rash as a side effect.
Thanks for any info on the topic. But I agree with the question regarding the rash.. Although the oil is keeping me off narcotics; is the itching from the cbd oil???
Hi Meg I believe the itching could be from the CBD oil as i have heard this before but i have also heard that it can also be a reaction to the agent they mix the oil with.
I too am taking CBD oil for pain from spinal surgery and no negative reactions so far and the benefits are incredible no pain. Also, I would try changing the supplier and purchase only the best product that you can find or afford. I would stop taking the CBD oil you now have just to see if the itching stops.
Next i would continue taking the oil for another week just to see if the reaction diminishes, if not, I would try another supplier. My mum got me some cbd cream and drops in the hope to relieve some pain. My inr was very high this week 3. Can anyone offer advice?? I know this is gonna sound hilarious, but I am actually researching for a friend. My friend, age 73 and suffering from end stage copd.
He has passed out before. Anyway, he has been taking CBD about a month and has little effects positive or negative. There is an article about how much cbd you should take on cbdoilusers. I am also learning and trying to find what amount suits me. They say you have to find your sweet spot. They also have a list of good brands. Good luck to your friend, nice of you to help him. I started taking CDB oil under the tongue a few months ago for pain. Seems to help BUT I have a terrible lingering after taste and a sense of smell as well.
I quit taking it for or over a week and I still have the same smell and Ted taste effecffects. It all smells and tastes just like the CDB oil. Is anyone else experiencing a change taste and smell. Marsha, Your nose and taste symptoms sound similar to a smell disorder. Parosmia and Phantosmia sometimes can happen from colds or sinusitis. In any case, you should get this checked out with a doctor to rule out the serious stuff.
I have been living with Phantosmia for seven years from a concussion. I use a pure CBD extract with no added oils — it does taste like crap so I put it in food. I use cbd tincture with mint oil. It tastes and feels good! I tried the natural and I could barely stand the taste. It tastes like I just popped a breath mint. I take the mg broad spectrum. I have had chronic pain for over 40 years and taken opioids for most of that time. Using cbd oil has caused me to be able to cut way down on pain meds.
For example one of my meds was fentanyl patches I dropped from mcg to 12 mcg in just 7 months! I had two good brands and one bad one. The two good ones were Hempland and sacred leaf. I get headaches from it. Which do me a disservice as I take it for neck and shoulder pain. I feel good after taking it usually , but next day I have a migraine as if I drank alcohol. Wondering if you need to drink extra amounts of water with this. Hi Jennifer I experienced the same thing with the first supplier I used.
I purchased the oil based on the price…. I research the company and talk to them about their process and base my decision on the purity of the product. I only took 10 drops sublingually below tongue for 60 seconds as suggested the first time round and had the same experience. I was so happy. I stopped the CBD but for the next 2 days I still had headaches in the back of my head like dehydration headaches.
Now I feel very uneasy taking the oil again. I really want this to work, as the shingles related nerve pain is driving be crazy and my anxiety levels anyways are thru the roof.
He was the test dummy before giving it to out son who has crohns….. Everyone reacts differently to CBD, but as we explain here, the brand and quality of the product can also make a big difference!
With so many options, how do we find a good and reputable company that can help with the dosage? I have been using the oil for about 6 weeks and I think it is great, I am sleeping much better and all my aches and pains seem to have disappeared. I s this a side effect. I also have insomnia, perhaps due more to pain than anything else.
After rubbing the oil and then the cream into the areas of spasticity that were painful enough to keep me in tears and awake night after night, the pain stopped and I fell asleep. The next day I felt great. The second night I used it again and slept well again. However, felt tired, fatigued, and light headed. The pain relief alone has been an amazing blessing for me.
Taking CBD oil for the last couple of months has greatly helped me with my anxiety issues as well as my insomnia. I would normally wake multiple times a night and feel absolutely exhausted every day.
I would remember all the crazy dreams every night because I would be waking up so often it felt like I was living a crazy night life. I now only wake up once maybe twice and feel that I am getting a much deeper sleep.
This has also helped with my anxiety issues. I continue to take a very low dose of an anti depressant but I do not have to take my xanax anymore. The only side effect I seem to have is that I feel a little ditzy and maybe not as quick with my thoughts I believe called psychomotor slowing. But this side effect is worth the positive outcomes I have had. Any time I can take less prescribed meds and take something more natural I am all for it. I have back problems — wear and tear on my lumber spine — and I have a very stressful job, so I thought I would give it a try.
I still have the lower back pain every day. I thought CBD oil would help me sleep! I seem to have developed a pain in my right shoulder and neck now also! I read loads of reports and reviews about CBD oil before I bought any so when I did I was hoping for a miracle cure and a good nights sleep to boot! By the way, just recently, before I started taking CBD oil, I had a bad case of prostatitis and I was taking a 2 week course of antibiotics.
The THC helps me get the sleep that i need. Really interesting reading all of the comments.
