    🤔Medically yes. Its safer and far less addictive than other anti anxiety anti depressants that doctors prescribe. And much safer. And it doesn’t get you high.

      CBD? The alternative for anxiety would be xanax or klonopin and those destroy people’s lives and are extremely addictive and send people to rehabs all the time. You don’t hear that from CBD. It doesn’t give a high. You can look up any random report you want and you will find that CBD is less addictive.

      Addictive substances trigger a release of dopamine in the brain’s pleasure centers and over time, the body becomes dependent on the substance, experiencing withdrawal symptoms if a person stops using it.
      Because CBD does not produce an excessive release of dopamine, it cannot get you high and there is no “euphoria” present that is commonly associated with other opioids, benzodiazepines, and even nicotine.
      Instead, CBD actually works to balance the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain—if there is too much of one neurotransmitter, CBD will help to lower it, and if there isn’t enough of another, CBD will help bring it up to a balanced level. Plus, because CBD is not addictive, when you stop taking it, there are no “cold turkey” withdrawal symptoms.

    I am 100% for the use of CBD. It is safer than most medication that are socially acceptable. The medical benefits far outweigh the stigma surrounding it.

      Troy Day they approved Epidiolex. Which contains CBD for seizures and have okayed parts of hemp as safe for food.
      Some CBD contains thc, yet not all of it contains high enough doses to have psycoactives affects on the one using it.
      I have had my own experience using it and did not have any withdraw when I stopped taking it.
      There are pros and cons with any medical treatment. There are many drugs the FDA approved that have destroyed lives and killed people.
      Show me research that supports CBD causing side effects such as these.

    Isn’t it just pot in a oil form. They have banned it several towns and counties in Texas. If you are caught with it in Fort Worth, Texas you are arrested and charged. So it must be bad, not for me. In fact how many people do you know that uses it.

      Cbd oil does not get you high and can be bought at any health or vitamin store. I find it hard to believe you can get arrested for it. You can buy it legally online and it is not against federal law. This oil can help with several neurological disorders.

      Bobbi Goff Klein no. CBD is not pot. THC is the compound that can make one high when abused, not CBD. CBD is a compound found in canibinoids, but has no effect on your mental state. It will soon be a clarified vitamin.

    From what I hear and read, it is not the part of the marijuana that makes one high, and cannibinoids (sp?) are found in other plants in lower concentrations. There are supposed to be some health benefits.

    I’m not really into dumping my money into all the newest herb supplements and superfoods. I prefer to eat fresh vegetables, but I may eat a little capsule of spirilina or something like that if we acquire it somehow. I’m not going to condemn people who take health supplements.

    There may be a legal issue here with some states banning it if it comes from cannibis, even if it isn’t something that gets people high. I believe it was recently legalized in Georgia. I see signs advertizing it.

      Crissy Cotto, there is never a reason not to speak you mind in love. I’m from a family that has beat cancer 8 times. The last was brain cancer and my sister says she gains relief from CNDs and THC. It’s her body not mine. I’m a former cop, see where I’m coming from, I have watched that stuff lead to so much family destruction. There are always two sides to every story. I just want to be on God’s side of the story. It’s her personal choice, not mine.

    Depends on what it is being used for. Pain, yes, but check with doctor for bad drug interactions. However, not for anxiety or depression, this would just be like any other drug, taking the place of Jesus. People should also be aware of cancer causing agents found in CBD, something the advocates for it, don’t want you to know. So, if you think you may enjoy cancer, I would suggest trying it.

      Philip Warstler vaccines cause cancer the ingredients they list are carcinogenic. Of course scientists in other countries that studied our vaccines found multiple ,in double digits, ingredients they couldn’t even identify. Some ingredients they claim are in them were missing and some ingredients were way higher than the legal dose.

    Troy Day vaccines open spiritual/demonic doors. Did you vaccinate your kids? I find it amazing when I hear Christians talk about CBD but believe in pharmaceuticals and vaccines. How well Satan has snuck in the back door. Did you know that over 100 aborted babies were used in the making of the current vaccines? And ONLY last year 436 deaths due to vaccines reported to VARs? That was just in the US. And just the reported ones. Did you know that you don’t hear about any of this because there was a Act passes in the 80’s protecting vaccine companies from liability which is also why their current vaccines don’t have everything the company says are in them. Did you know in the Bible when they sacrificed babies to Molec (spelling?) the purpose for sacrificing the babies was for the health and prosperity of their own family. To say you can inject murdered babies and kill 436 children for the “greater good” or the “Health“ of your family is no different than what they did in Biblical times. Troy if it had been your child killed by vaccines I would not promote or touch a vaccine knowing that it was even just one child dieing for mine, I wouldn’t give it to my kids if I knew only one would die for it. Did you know injecting another humans DNA causes an autoimmune response thus autoimmune disorders for life? You can say your children are fine now but their will be things popping up. Did you also know that God said not to mix spices in multiple places in the Bible? In fact God tells us in 1 Sam 15 to kill the entire amalekite people and all of their animals bc they were preforming abominations mixing animals with people, preforming canabalism etc…then of course genisis the Nephilim are a mixed spices causing giants and God said he was not ok with it. And vaccines don’t just contain dead babies they contain animal DNA. So your injecting murdered humans and animals(different spices) into your kids and yourself if you get the flu vaccine. Did you know God always has a good reason when he asks us not to do something. Did you know vaccines are responsible for Type 1 diabetes, cancer, epilepsy, SIDS, multiple mental disorders causing kids to commit suicside etc.. , ADHD, Autism, just to name a few.

    But your telling me a plant that has no THC that heals a lot of the damage that vaccines caused should be illegal?

      Troy Day seriously nothing has changed. I don’t use it to smoke with friends. Whenever I get focal seizures, I take a puff or two and the twitching stops. Actually I haven’t had any in three weeks and I am so sick from Tegretol (my current seizure medication). God still speaks to me via dreams. Actually spoke to me recently about something I was dealing with. I also make food. You don’t have to smoke it. I make salad dressings. I am knowledgeable about marijuana. There are sativa and indica strains which both do different things. Not all strains are created equal so it’s not like I go and smoke anything. Its like choosing between tylenol and advil or motrin. There are differences. And I drink more coffee than I use THC by the way and thank you for not mocking me or shunning me. Not many ask the way you ask and make me feel horrible.
