Does CBD have any positive health effects? On this episode of The Sitch, we're talking all about CBD oil for pain, anxiety, and sleep.

CBD belongs to a class of compounds known as cannabinoids. This non-intoxicating compound has become majorly popular in the past year or so and can be found in everything from sunscreen to cocktails to coffee. Some of the more outstanding CBD claims include that it helps fix leaky gut syndrome, can be used to treat mutiple sclerosis, and can cure cancer.

But how much truth is there to this? Today we're taking a look at the research on CBD!

  1. Great video and I appreciate your evidence based approach! I think, if used appropriately and with the advice of a provider who is familiar with using CBD, it can be great for sleep, anxiety, pain and even depression. I totally agree about how it can use the same metabolic enzyme pathway that grapefruit does so it can interfere with certain drug metabolism so always talk with an experienced provider about this topic. Thanks for the video and what a great channel you have!!!

  2. I have struggled with insomnia for decades and have tried everything. Heard about CBD as it's only recently been approved for sale in the UK, I believe.

    So its only been a few days since I have been trying 4 drops of 5% CBD oil at night, under the tongue and so far I can see a huge difference. I feel 'more comfy ' after about 45mins and thoughts stop racing and feel nice and sleepy…not 'druggy or drunk sleepy' but naturally sleepy as if it's the end of a nice long active day on holiday. ..etc.

    I do wake in the early hours but don't have the associated 'jagged, jangled sort of stressed out feeling with my heart racing like so many other times before. I am able to drift back to sleep and feel calm and alert the next day.

    May still be early days but think this shows a lot of promise as an excellent much safer alternative.
