How Does CBD Oil Work? • Dr Philip Blair MD

Listen to US family physician, Dr Philip Blair, explain how CBD oil helps to control seizures, anxiety, inflammation, pain & arthritis and many other diseases.

If you know someone who is interested in how they can use CBD oil to help with specific psychological or physical conditions such as, anxiety, depression, pain, diabetes, appetite regulation, PTSD, cancer or arthritis (just to name a few), or someone who is interested in just feeling better overall, then this interview is for them.

I enjoyed this interview and after talking to Philip I have a better understanding about the mechanisms that allow cannabinoids to have such a large impact on our bodies. Also, how we can incorporate taking CBD oil into our daily routine to see improvements in many different aspects of our physiology and psychology.

Thank you, excellent video!

For me it works great!! It has controlled 4 years of post shingles pain!


Everybody got a gimmick product now they are endorsing. There is no real substantive research?

THE DEA DOESN"T HAVE AUTHORITY TO MAKE LAWS!! Thank you for this video, very informative.

Himalayan and Celtic salt , they have over 80 minerals.. Get rid of table SALT...

Is the product he's selling from hemp seed ? I read that the plant itself works not oil from seeds ?

what if a child with autism won't eat ketogenically. Will CBD help without a keto status?

USA - u can buy legal full spectrum hemp containing cannabidiol. 100% Legal on federal level. Some stats are lagging behind, but not for long.

Thank you for the holistic plant approach. I am healthier and stronger on hemp extract.

I just started with 2500 mg =1 oz liquid bottle pure CBD ( No THC) tincture. The next month I up the dose to 5000 mg-1oz but double the cost. I have seen a drastic improvement certainly as an anti-depressant and less of an anti-anxiety and even less as a pain reliever for pain. I started using it due to high sugar levels and impaired vision in the left eye. So far, I am very impressed with the results, especially in my left eye regaining vision lost due to high blood pressure.
It will defiantly lower your blood pressure levels. By watching your carbs and fat intake, this diet could not only be good for weight loss but mental charity as well.

If I’m in ketosis does it affect how the CBD oil works does it work better if you’re not on a keto diet? I’m not exactly clear on that! Thanks👍

Also will cbd eleviate my pain.

I’ve taken an opioid for pain for years. I am slowly weaning off them. But I know this will take some time. Would it be ok to take CBD while I am coming off the opioid and would it help with withdrawal symptoms. Thanks.

On some YouTube videos they say hemp has very little CBD

How to sensibly buy LEGAL CBD oil? Because I got a letter saying customs have confiscated my package two times already and I’m pissed.

My son's wife what's infertile she couldn't get pregnant but she had pain from an auto accident she took CBD oil and now she's pregnant I googled it and it said that CBD oil can promote pregnancy and ladies it can help them get pregnant and this case the doctor said no but the CBD oil said yes so I'm wondering should she she stopped taking it cuz she's pregnant should she stop taking it or should she keep taking it is it not good to take it when your pregnant

At last, an episode where eating meat isn't the answer to everything.

I been on anti-depressants since 2011. I am not depressed anymore and so I wanted to wean off and end that. I tried to wean on my own but ended up having a psychotic break which landed me in the hospital. I testify that this full spectrum CBD, and I haven’t taken my anti-depressants in 12 days!!! After taking it for 8 years everyday, my pills are FINISHED!! Praise Jesus and CBD. I should have been laid out and tied up in a mental institution right now without the CBD.

Western Drs hate that CBD is coming out bcus now we don’t need them!!

Cart get it in uk ...

Which one is the best ....

Using CBD oil for a brain tumor causing seizures, insomnia, headaches, nausea. The only difference I see is the headaches have let up some, not as bad. I don't know how we can afford to keep taking this product for a long period of time? so expensive!!!

what a great video. Wish all youtube vids was so comprehensive and simple to understand as this. thank you so much

Good video I have motor neurone disease will cbd oil help?

It's great to know cbd oil is legal in all 50 states

Kindly what is the dose of CBD OIL for fibromyalgia ?TY

CBD oil and vapes have changed my life.

Dont think ill smoke CBD.
Sounds like a smokable Psych pill for a person with problems.
Any pot smoker should stay away from this.
Its TRASH dont trust it.
Why smoke CBD if its addicting and messes with other medications.
Its addicting...
No thanks

Wow, thank you both for the most excellent interview and information on this most important subject.

So sad that with all the positive evidence concerning cannabis, that in the USA it can't be studied on humans even though there are numerous benefits! It;s more than sad,it's a shame. Just heard Mexico will legalize cannabis by October 2019. It is believed that Mexico will be the number one exporter of cannabis to the world above Canada and the USA. If Mexico allows studies to be done on human as Israel is now doing,Mexico could very possibly become a very wealthy nation.Too bad big pharma has such a big influence in a bad way.

Canada will be come an endocannaboid incubator/ hot bed for trials for forward thinking med professionals i think.


Excellent ,informative interview .

He needs to practice pronouncing the words before he does interviews.

Drug interactuons when taking a cbd pill should i take a hour or so after My meds ? Also what is more effective vaping or liquid. ?

Could one please tell me wich form is recommended form Depression & Anxiety? I really don't care for the thought of Vaping .I do need a rapid acting form. So any info appreciated...

It doesn't work don't fall for this crap.

CBD is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Within one day my depression/anxiety and lower back pain is gone. I sleep at night more restless leg syndrome. No more Kolonapin for me! I’m telling everyone I know about this. 250 mg bottle lasts me a month for $40. Please try this! I was skeptical but now I 100% agree it’s a lifesaving product! ☺️

is there any study that combined CBD and rTMS / tDCS magnetic stimulation?

how can we be sure about all this beyond any reasonable doubt?

excellent video and good info, thank you ~

Until big pharma has CBD under it’s own control, (most) physicians will never suggest. Follow the $$$.

I'll be a giny pig to test cbd oils

I am on antidepressants and volume and oxycodone. I tried cbd oil and found I didn't need the other drugs and slowly weaned myself off of them. I say I had to take kratom to get off the oxycodone . The only thing I can say is if you take kratom only use it long enough to help with withdrawal. After trying the cbd oil it has made me feel so much better

For years nobody wanted to listen to Professor Raphael Meshulam when he was talking about the immense benefits of cannabis. Suddenly it's all different, and what was yesterday a dangerous drug is now a great medicine... What a silly world we are living in...

There still needs to be more studies... As a health professional in forced to follow evidence based practice.

"some important toxicological parameters are yet to be studied, for example, if CBD has an effect on hormones. Additionally, more clinical trials with a greater number of participants and longer chronic CBD administration are still lacking."

Iffland K, Grotenhermen F. An Update on Safety and Side Effects of Cannabidiol: A Review of Clinical Data and Relevant Animal Studies. Cannabis Cannabinoid Res. 2017;2(1):139–154. Published 2017 Jun 1. doi:10.1089/can.2016.0034

"Although studies examining the specific therapeutic effects of CBD are increasing, clinical data do not support the popular uses of CBD for Parkinson disease, schizophrenia, cancer palliation and treatment, chronic pain and spasticity, depression, anxiety disorder, insomnia, and inflammation."

All cbd oil contains trace amounts of thc. That's my experience with many companies

Works perfectly with my BioEnergy Meditation... I have treated my own breast cancer with whole plant ( now CBD ) with my meditation... no orthodox treatment even though I come from a medical family and have been in health care for over 35yrs .. plus nutrition

What is the name of the documentary the interviewer is talking about ? Thanks

And it's confusing because it goes from 300mg to 3600mg.

Don't believe the ads for CBD oil.  I purchased the most potent cbd oil on the market and took 15 to 20 drops per day and after a month it was absolutely clear that the oil did absolutely nothing in any way to reduce the pain or inflammation in my hands due  tto arthritis.  Save your money and take an aspirin.  Of course like me u can try it for yourself.  It cost me $120.00 for one oz..

Good talk. Very informative. I’ve suffered after receiving the Lyme vaccine back in 1999, and still get the encephalitis, chronic fatigue,
Vision problems, brain fog, numbness and painful migraines since the vaccine. CBD oil is helping this condition.

Can CBD oil make a difference in people who can not metabolize fats?

How many drops should you take for anxiety?

What is the best cbd oil? I want the best kind and there are so many its overwhelming

Where do you get CBD oil?

Does taking hemp seed or taking cbd oil fail drug test???

Great video! Just curious what's the recommended dosage to take of cbd? Would 2000mg 20% be ok ? I suffer from vasculitis and chronic allergies and asthma would cbd help me in any way ?

and Canadian listeners...........starting my CBD tonight for pain/arthritis

1 mg for every kg of bodyweight? This is getting expensive if my math is correct.

Can you advise what cbd oil to get and from where if your in the UK?

Ok, ok, I know we’re all busy, but if were to do a pod on cannabis, I’d practice saying cannabidiol for a while.

Thank you!

Very insightful post. Many thanks.

I’m trying a narrow spectrum oil as I was told it can be easier for beginners with the taste and dosage. I’m hoping it works!

I have Restless leg Syndrome a tight. Can not sleep. I heard on line
That. CBD Oil would help. Where can I buy this.

Is the reason it doesn’t work for some people cause they tried it with no THC?

Just started cbd yesterday for anxiety and panic attacks...also insomnia....IT WORKED for me yesterday and slept like a baby.

ty for your post!

in order to have CBD compliment or increase the potential of a substance must they be taken at the same time?

From listening to you guys, you make it sound like this "snake oil" can cure everything and anything. Improve your eyesight? I was with you until you said that. I took select CBD for months and saw no change in my pain level, migraines, eyesight, sleep etc. And, it's so expensive! Seems like everyone is scamming people these days and always selling something. Some people say you have to have THC with your CBD or it won't help your pain. I haven't tried this yet. But I'm desperate, so I probably will. It's terrible that people would just try to take money from sick people. There needs to be some standardization and regulations in this industry. Of course, if the government gets its hands on it the price will go up.

I go to sleep with it. I'm finally sleeping thru the night. It has helped with my panic attacks and depression. I had a hysterectomy at 30 and my whole body was shot. I was on premerin then I had to come off because of a blood clotting disorder! There are a lot of medical problems as well as pain throughout the years. Since I went on Centrix CBD oil has been life changing for me. I've lowered my pain significantly.
Thank you for your videos. I have a much better life since. i am a diabetic and I'm going to expect I will have a new life with this medical breakthrough.

Edited: 2/16/19 :

Gave me a nasty stomach ache within 15 hours and only made me feel sleepy, didn't help my arthritis - My opinion is its just another snake-oil scam ... Not regulated by the FDA, so it can be made anyplace, for all I know it could have contained rat piss - Don't waste your money.

Can u recommend any high quality brands that meet this criteria?

Please remember that PTSD affects anyone who has had trauma not just veteran's. Rape victims, car accidents etc...

CBD needs 10% THC to be effective. I RETURNED THE bottle to Natural supermarket. Would you cram fish oil in your system and expect a miracle? I live in Colorado,US took 15mg day, then 30mg, next 45mg/day and I got sick! Nausea, tasted fish oil, sweats, headache!!! It's all hype to get your money! Low dose of Cbd derived from cannibus not hemp plant is only one truly effective. Don't waste $$ till hype is over and price drops IF you want to take. CBD ISN'T A MIRACLE

If you are on Insulin . will it interfer with that .. blood pressure , cholestoral , ani-reflux, depression , meds .. ?

Am on cbd oil and it helps with my fibromyalgia

I have learned so much from this podcast! Thank you for taking the time to explain about CBD oil! Dr, you are the doctor I would want, if it was possible. God bless you both and Thank You again!!

After years of insomnia and restless nights, CBD helped me sleep through the night, 7-8 hours. I was amazed it happened from the first dose, but the strength makes a difference. I took a CBD product a few years ago with no results. This time I used Ideal CBD, 1,125 mg CBD- 25 mg CBD per serving

CBD has been very helpful. I'm 70 yrs +
have found my producer of choice to be
Consistently beneficial to my diet & life in general. I believe most people can benefit from its use when it is taken regularly. I don't take any of
the "fun" items ie. gummies, relying
On the unflavored, full-spec product.

I'm curious why doesn't Elixinol use the whole plant like Zilis does. I haven't used any CBD Oils but it seems from all the videos and articles that I read today that it's important to read the labels to ensure you are getting the hemp for the whole plant vs just the stems. Than you for the knowledge that you shared today.

My friend who owns a health food store gave me a $100 bottle of hemp oil. It was high quality however I am in so much bad chronic pain that the bottle was wasted on me and barely help me maybe 10%? What good is that? I would have to spend $800 to get any relief!!

I want to say thank you for this video. I suffer from general anxiety disorder and from panic disorder and wanted to know about the interaction with CBD and antidepressant medications and have not found one thing on the internet to help me make a choice on if I should use CBD or not. This video was so amazing and helpful and I can’t wait to start using CBD to help me and to better my overall Health . Thanks again and keep up the great work

whats the maxiumum amount of cbd full spectrum oil i can use a day for benzo tapering?

To me by my own experience I noticed how it brought balance to my ability to endure pain levels without exhausting me.

That this MD represents a specific supplier decreases his trustworthiness for me. It's like listening to a Pharma Rep. The data is suspect at that point. Too bad because he's an MD and probably has some good information, but suspect due to his relationship to an actual supplier.

why dont I feel anything from CBD oil?

This is great.So much helpful information.

is it related to sulfate ?

Cbd is the future 😉👍🏼

Very in-depth information on Hemp oil and CBD (technical but not boring)

Common sense: If you are taking prescription medication contradictions can occur and this is using common sense. There have been zero side effects of taking alone! There have been zero deaths from taking CBD oil! Medications mixed with another medication is dangerous and called contradictions. So many people are leaving up out of here due to taking all those different prescription drugs together. If you are taking prescription medication you can't mix other drugs with and this using common sense. Cannabis has zero side effects of hurting anyone. Now, again, using with prescription drugs is another story. I became prescription drug-free in 2010 and I am so happy and blessed and was on way too many from antidepressants which made me had to take antipsychotics, and the cycle went on and on and on and on and I even wanted to hurt myself! I am so glad I don't take any other medications and common sense should tell you that when taking God's plant you won't have to take man's made poisons!

There are over 60 medical schools in the US now teaching about the Endocannabinoid System.

Elixinol - from what the analysis states - is made from the stems and stalks of the plant - not the leaves and the flowers. WHY??? It could be much more potent!

Start watching after 3:00 min.

When I take cbd it makes me want to eat plants. I love it so.

Canadians too
