Anyone try CBD oil as augmentation or stand-alone?

Posted by mtom on February 7, 2019, at 14:18:38

Interested in hearing from those who have tried CBD Oil either as an augmentation to other meds, or a stand-alone therapy.

Some Background:
Here in Canada Medicinal Cannabis has been legal for a number of years. It must be prescribed by a Doctor and provided by Government regulated Licensed Producers. Most GPs refer patients to Doctor run Medical Cannabis Clinics for these prescriptions. Based on your medical history and health conditions, they prescribe a product and dosage they feel is suitable, and suggest high quality providers from their experience, although you are free to choose any licensed provider who offers a product in line with your prescription. Some of the providers here have been and are involved in ongoing research and published papers. Although there has been quite a bit of in vitro and animal research, clinical human trials are still scanty (there have been some), they are ongoing. Much of the research has been done or is in process in Canada, Europe and Israel, often in collaborations, where regulations are more "research friendly". Based on a combination of research and apparently abundant anecdotal evidence, medical cannabis is being prescribed in Canada for a variety of conditions including mood, anxiety and sleep disorders, chronic pain and inflammatory conditions, epilepsy and more.
I understand that in the U.S. most medical CBD is produced from Hemp due to the trace amounts of THC. This is not the case in Canada where regular cannabis strains are used, and the THC content varies from very low amounts, to more significant amounts, depending on the patients conditions and as prescribed by the Doctor.
