May I recommend this
facebook page, 'Simply CBD Users Support:'
The information I learnt there really helped me to try CBD; how to
start, & build up gradually to find the dosage that might help.
They also correctly stress that many medications (& even over the
counter ones you might buy) must be taken into consideration as to
the timing of doses. This is because CBD is broken down by a complex
of enzymes in the liver where over 90% of medications are also broken
down. Therefore time gaps are needed (4 hours is recommended) between
taking CBD & most medications, etc. to ensure you get the benefit
of prescribed medications (& not an accidental overdose).
Anyone taking CBD
should really discuss this with their prescribing Dr, or a pharmacist. I
discussed this with our GP's surgery pharmacist by telephone. If you feel
uncomfortable with asking them, just go into your
high street chemists, & ask to speak to their pharmacist. Ask if
your medication, or any over the counter meds, or supplements you
take, are adversely affected by the liver's cytochrome P450 complex
(the liver enzymes I've mentioned above).
I buy online from Simply CBD: https://www.simply-cbd.co.uk/
.....very reasonably priced & lab certified. The above facebook page will be able to say which of Simply's oils may be of a similar strength to what you're already taking, & suggest if you might benefit from going to a stronger oil if ever needed.
I also vape CBD e-liquids from https://littlehempshop.co.uk.
As these obviously do not go through your digestive system, they may
help those who want to try CBD, but struggle due to taking
medications needing a gap between taking these & CBD. They also
sell hempy tea which again you can have any time.
I hope some of this may help as far as CBD goes. Any other questions, please say.
@woodbine - see : https://drugscience.org.uk/project-twenty21/ I'm not in favour of the 'medicinal use of cannabis' unless in the rare cases as I mentioned. CBD can help some people with pain, anxiety & depression especially, similar to some claims for cannabis. It's not a cure all, but, if taken correctly, I can at least vouch that it may help.
