CBD is being touted to help treat nausea, anxiety, cancer, arthritis and even Alzheimer’s. Does it work?

Patients, such as those being treated with cancer, should talk with their care team before using CBD.

Dr. Brent Bauer says there needs to be more research on CBD. Early indicators show it's safe, but many questions remain.

  1. I took CBD just two days 5% and I felt a little dizzy, I read book everyday and I found I don't enjoy book after taking CBD, my emotional connection with book with story in this book is without emotions. I didn't read book with passion as one day ago. CBD make you narenit connect with reality and not improve your focus. CBD make you sleep better but next day you feel tired with no anxiety but also no energy. The worse think for me was that be ok which I read make me tired when I read it during CBD, I felt each side of book is challenge and each I didn't focus on entire story as well as without CBD, it was wired feeling like I am not care about reading book just I am care about nothing. I think CBD is not good for people who go to school or want pass any exams because your focus is not as good as should be. I don't believe in advertising that CBD improve memory or focus. CBD make just you are more like in dream and can give you dizziness or light headedness.

  2. If its strong enough to help you its strong enough to hurt you. That never stopped the pharmaceutical industry or doctors proscribing harmful medications. Yet Marijuana has never been shown to truly harm anyone after decades of use by millions. The magic would be avoiding man made substances that almost always have harmful side effects.

  3. I'm a retired Police officer with shot knees. and back pain issues. I'm 66 years old. No pain killers helped me. My daughter took me to a store that a friend of hers owns. After talking to him I decided to try it. That was October last year. Within days the pain in my knees started to subside. After about 2 weeks the pain was gone and never returned. Now I walk with no pain at all. Last week I decided to try and chop the the ice out of my driveway. I chopped out a section about 30 feet by 15 feet. My knees and back felt great. Before I started taking CBD oil I couldn't spend more than 15 minutes in the garage before my back would start to hurt. I told my 73 year old sister about it. I bought a bottle for her 2 weeks ago. She takes the same dosage as me. One drop twice daily. I talked to her today and she said the pain in her knees is completely gone. We can only speak from our own experience. My CBD oil is made from Canabis, not hemp.
