Mayo Clinic Minute: Is CBD safe to use?

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.

Nate Diaz brought me here

I've tried Luma Wellness CBD and it's so far the best quality without all the added junk. Charlotte's Web is a huge brand I see everywhere but haven't tried yet.

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.

I'd say the only serious danger to cbd on the market is the fake stuff and falsely advertised products.

Incorrect “Cbd comes from Sativa marijuana “ bro does not smoke 😂😂😂

CBD helps thousands and the big drug companies are lobbying against it

Helps with my back pain

Anyone else use pure relief? I like the snow man joints

Given that CBD embeds itself so deeply within our neural system, there's got to be some withdrawal symptoms..and isnt it also very similar to how SSRIs work?

"Ask the doctor putting mustard gas in your veins, if you can take something natural."

CBD oil is a joke. Tried it for 3 months. Nothing, nada, zip. In fact, I even had my mother and sister try it for 3 months. Yet again, nothing, nada, zip. Even asked a few of my friends how did it work for them? They also said, nothing, nada zip. So it’s not just me. Sure it may help 1 person in a thousand. I get that. But these pushers act as if it can cure everything from knee pain, headaches, anxiety to skin disorders. C’mon man. If you can prove me wrong CBD gods prove it. Send me what you got. I’ve tried 3 different brands. It’s a frigging scam (for the most part) except for that 1 rare incident we keep hearing about. If you are skeptical about buying some, let me save you some time and money by saying “don’t buy it”. It’s a joke. And for you people responding to my post saying otherwise, well, save your typing. Cause this Cowboy has done left dodge. Go sell your snake oil to the next stooge.

It's probably safer than putting Mayonnaise on your sandwich, and probably just as useful (as mayonnaise) for curing what ails you.

biggest con since ginseng....I wouldn't even use it to oil my bike....

Really!! This needs more studies and million of drugs that are unsafe with dangerous side effects are allowed

It’s not like they don’t want you to do drugs they don’t want you to do drugs rather than theirs

Everybody should start planting weed. Its crazy how expensive it is and all because of prohibition.

MOST drugs sold are LETHAL: even tylenol if you take enough.. AND here they talk is cbd SAFE!!!! OMG what a criminal system we live under"!

Have you ever felt sick to your stomach after taking CBD oil?

Take a look at our CBD drops.

I love CBD, helps with my depression, PTSD and my cold that i just recently got. noticed the inflammation clear up almost immediately!

This is only a minute long just let the guy talk, don’t need the VO

I use a company called c4 Healthlabs. Their reviews are incredible. It has helped me sleep and my pain.

I train almost every day and therefore I need something that is amazing for recovery. I was sceptical of CBD oil at first specifically for its pain and anti-inflammatory related properties.

I had already been using it for anxiety and it worked amazingly.

I was advised when taking CBND for recovery I would need a high strength one.

I bought Dr. Hemp Me 20% CBD oil and I have been taking 4 drops twice a day.

My recovery time has completely halved. The only soreness I get is from hard knocks received in games but hey I play hurling so that is a given.

I give it a 10 out of 10 when compared to other recovery supplements like protein bars and shakes.

CBD is all-natural and definitely works.

A few pointers;

Buy full-spectrum CBD oil

Make sure it is high strength (at least 10%)

Check for lab tests

My recommendation is Dr. Hemp Me. I hope CBD makes a positive difference in your life just as it has mine.

When CBD Oil Doesn’t Work

Firstly, we’re aware that “When CBD Oil Doesn’t Work” sounds like a shockumentary (if that isn’t a word, it totally should be) shown on repeat at 1am every night on some obscure TV channel. But don’t worry, what we’re here to discuss is nowhere near that scary, and is hopefully substantially more interesting.
Sometimes, you may find you take CBD oil and do not feel the expected effects, or indeed any effects at all. So, if you are wondering why CBD oil is not working for you, there’s a few things to consider, let’s get straight into it.

Is this CBD oil good? How to know? keep on reading :)
Different Responses to CBD Oil
To start, it is important to remember that everyone’s body is different, and will react in different ways to CBD oil, so just because you have heard from someone who got a specific effect from a certain oil, it doesn’t mean that oil will do the same for you.
If you are new to CBD oils, start with a low strength oil, no more than 5% (consider as low as 1%) to see how your body reacts. If you feel little to no effect, the chances are you can try a stronger dose, but it’s better to start too light than too strong.
The Quality of CBD Oil
The next thing to consider if you are feeling no effects from the CBD oil you are taking is the quality. Regulation in the CBD market is limited at this point, while the EU has laws on how much THC content CBD oil can have (no more than 0.2%) there are few laws governing everything else.
This means that if you use a less than trusted supplier, you may be taking CBD oil that contains no CBD, or has the wrong quantity compared to what is advertised. CBD oils from some suppliers may also have something other than CBD in them.
The advice here is simple, be sure to use a trusted, well-respected supplier (cheeky wave) to ensure that you are getting what you order.
What Are the Effects of CBD Oil?
It’s all well and good knowing what might be wrong if the CBD oil you are using is not producing the expected effects, but that only works if you know what the expected effects are.
If you are new to CBD oil and don’t know what to expect, then it’s tough to know whether what you’re feeling is what you are supposed to feel, so let’s take a look at those effects.
Let’s start with the obvious, is you are taking CBD with the intention of feeling a ‘high’ like you would get from THC (so we’ve heard) then you’re going to be disappointed. Unlike THC, CBD is not a psychoactive molecule, and will not produce that ‘high’, it’s not what it’s for.
So, we cannot speak directly about the positive effects that CBD may have from a medical perspective, (others do, like here, for example), but we can discuss the science a little.
CBD works with the cannabinoids that naturally occur inside the human body. What’s that? Naturally occurring cannabinoids?
That’s right, you have an endocannabinoid system, which effects various things, including pain, depression, and memory.
When this system is out of balance, it can have negative effects on your health. Therefore, if you were to take something that could improve the balance within your endocannabinoid system, hypothetically, the effects would include a relaxed state of mind, pain relief, and assistance with certain neurological disorders which are affected by that system.
Basically, if you were to take CBD oil, you could, again, hypothetically, expect to feel better within yourself, perhaps a little more chilled, maybe a little more motivated, possibly some pain could be relieved, it’s a world of exciting mystery to be discovered.
Different Effects for Different People
Different oils, in terms of strength, especially, will have various impacts, it very much depends on your body and how it reacts.
Full disclosure, for some people, CBD may not have much of an effect, as with all other things, there is no one-stop fix for everybody.
However, evidence suggests that there are effects from CBD oils on the majority of people who use them, and while these effects may differ, they are very rarely negative as long as the oil is taken sensibly.
Be sensible, we mean what was said above, start with a low strength, work up if you feel you need it, and when you find the right strength for you, stick with it, and you’ll be good.
And remember, if the CBD oils you’re taking aren’t working, you might be using the wrong supplier.
If you have any questions about the effects of CBD oil, or you think the oil you are taking isn’t working for you, feel free to shoot us a message and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you.

Yet Chemo is okay??

Should i avoid antidepressants and anti anxiety meds while smoking hemp flower

I have been using Hempfulblends CBD and been loving it.

Deliberately misleading the way they cut this clip. "CBD comes from Cannabis Sativa, which is the plant from which we get marijuana, which has THC, which is [sic] the effect that gets people high."
I could also cut up a clip about potatoes and tell you about the healthy, antioxidant phenolic acids, which come from Solanum tuberosum, which is the plant from which we can get solanine, which cause "nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach cramps, burning of the throat, cardiac dysrhythmia, nightmares, headache, dizziness, itching, eczema, thyroid problems, and inflammation and pain in the joints. In more severe cases, hallucinations, loss of sensation, paralysis, fever, jaundice, dilated pupils, hypothermia, and death". Potatoes: deadly poison.

That's why it is so important to use a HIGH QUALITY CBD/hemp oil. That's why the lab results exist. I have Been using Nesas Hemp oil, and couldn't be happier. It helped me so much with the anxiety, sleep, muscle tension, even hair growth. and I heard the stories how much it helps even for autism. It's real stuff. Honestly, if you buy cheap stuff just for the sake of it, don't expect any CBD in the bottle and don't expect results.

After all this time fda still says marijuana is till worse than cocaine and crystal meth.

Excellent to see that WeedBorn has new product ;)

Makes you too strong for your own good which causes injuries.

"If its strong enough to help you its strong enough to hurt you"
Opioids literally kill people yet they are handed out like candy.

American Hospitals sell drugs and surgery...Let food be thy medicine.

The Doctors are the puppet for Big Pharmaceutical company & they hate CBD because it take away a lot businesses from them!!!

Have you ever felt sick to your stomach after taking CBD oil?

I have a ton of info at my Facebook page Mike's Cbd Journey for the type of Cbd that I have been using for the past year and absolutely love it!!!!!!!!

Works great for me - morning anxiety reduced by 80% and desire to exercise is through the roof (can't explain this it's weird). I take micellesorb cbd (it's a type of capsule packaging), because it's absorbed well by just taking a simple capsule!

PinkDogs 1824: Thank you Sir. Doctors do experiment on patients.

Hey there! Got weeds of various strains, cocaine, ketamine, LSD, pills, shrooms and psychedelic, vapes, cbd oil,crystalmeth.
Wickr I'd: plugzayn

If it's strong enough to help you, it's strong enough to hurt you? What a load of bull, this isn't a pharmaceutical. 50 years ago they said the same thing. Well, we can't tell you what's wrong with it exactly, but there must be something. When something is bad, you know it. Heroin, speed, cocaine, alcohol, etc. We all know they can kill you. Weed never killed any one. No one can tell you what's bad about it. How's that possible after 50 plus years?. Safe to say there's nothing wrong with it, unless you're allergic, and even then it'll only make you vomit, not kill you. In that case stop using it.

The question is, does it have medical value? For the last 50 plus years they all said no, though users knew better. Now it's being seen as almost a miracle drug for a multitude of ailments. Just like it was before it was made illegal. Look it up. More research is needed to see what it's best for? You bet. But it's obvious that unless pharmaceutical companies get hold of it and start messing with it, it's definitely not dangerous.

CBD oil brought my joint pain, and ocular migraines under control. Gentle, but transformational.

If it’s strong enough to help you it’s strong enough to hurt you? Maybe try it yourself and you might stop blurting such stupidity.

I tried it. For 3 months. I did a lot of research into the dosage. In an 800 milligram bottle, there is one tiny drop. One drop. A bottle that costs about 40 bucks is actually 799 milligrams of olive oil and one measly drop of CDB. It might actually work, if you could get a good dose. But one drop a month is a joke. It doesn't do anything at that tiny dosage. The industry is ripping us off, as always. Bunch of hype! If it works for you, fine, even if it's a placebo effect, but it's nothing but medicine show snake oil for me.

I am on my second day of CBD oil and I am already feeling great. Had good sleep yesterday night after taking it about 2 hrs before bed and I have been having insomnia issues. I had three bowel movements in less than 12 hours and pile is gone also. Morning fatigue was greatly reduced and joint pain also. Brain is clearer than yesterday and I am just having a wonderful day. Cannot wait to see the results after a week.😀

To all those who want to know. Cbd oil has finally treated my panic attacks I would get once a day between 1 hour to 8 hours long. Now I use cbd once a week and I’ve had 0 panic attacks since I started. I feel amazing sober now. No more chest pain, no more sweats, no more feeling of death, and great sleep

"CBD may help with pain" that statement right there tells me there was ZERO research done prior to this being put together. There are mountains of studies conforming the efficacy of CBD for pain. I stopped watching after that. Being the Mayo Clinic I expected better.

Cbd also comes from hemp....not marijuana and with ultra low levels of THC. I cant take a lot of meds but found that this seems to do wonders for Inflammation and some sleep benefits with limited side effects after 9 months. Much better for my chronic pain vs the pain scripts i have been taking prior. No chiropractor in 8 months. Very happy. Get it from a trusted vertical source which does cost some cash.

Throwing false hope doesn't work when results come from human consumption

I get mine most potent ones Here >>>

Doctors don't know jack squat about medications, pharmacists often have to sub out a prescription.

H3 Infusion Hemp Extract is 2% CBD, available at Amazon, Etsy and Ebay.

it can raise your blood pressure

as long as big Pharma exists there will never be healthcare....only sick care. even mayo clinic is owned by big pharmas message.

Great video! check us out for CBD content, over 50,000 lbs being processed! We provide a white-labeled solution for businesses.

Lmao is CBD safe😂😂😂😂😂😂 turning your freaking head is unsafe you dont know what can be on the side that might poke your eye out, oh but yeah let's get back to if cbd is safe or not..........

CBD causes anxiety and nausea. I was in Pueblo CO and bought Tommy Chongs strain Chong X. I panicked and was freaking out because I paid $20 for a gram and didnt get high. I was sick to my stomach. This guys lieing. THC cures anxiety, appetite, and everything he said CBD does.

I think he does make good points. But, rather than the medicine hurting us, its what people do that will be unsafe. There will always be people that abuse a product or substance. We cannot allow them to ruin the good name of healthy meds.

Watching this whilst on a plethora of unbelievable prescription drugs...that at turning me insane.

Doctors are still wishy-washy on CBD because no one in CBD industry has offered them a trip for a week to Italy, Rome, or even just a Cruise. While they get regular vacations from Big Pharma that manufactures Opioids, Xanax and mainstream pain killers.

There’s no research on how all the chemicals in our food and water affect us. Let’s ban food and water. I personally got many smoke shops and gas stations in the Houston Texas area to carry cbd flower. I gained zero dollars from it I just wanna help others like a few people who I gave free cbd and cured their seizures. Every time they see me I get a big hug. I don’t care about money I try to give free cbd to anyone who needs it

There are NO research backing up anything this guy said aside from that more research is needed. Shame on you.

it cures everything the hospital cant and its radiation free they dont have a cure for cancer cbd is natrul from the earth

So we are supposed to decide on our own?

lol, BIASED mayo clinic. If you want real info don't come here.

I am going through menopause and it helps me sleep but at this time it Is expensive if you get a good brand that works.

Cbd really helps me with anxiety and muscle pain I take like 30 MG isolates but I've noticed that sometimes I wake up with almost like a small hangover headache

Like it's not bad like a migraine or anything but I do find it weird

It seems to me that you left out the most serious problem about CBD. There is enormous FRAUD(!) in this industry, and it is expensive.

I come to the Mayo Clinic Website as one of my trusted sources of information but this clip was basically a waste of time

Great info! Check out for more info on CBD!

Gee no one has ever overdosed from weed so no one can overdose on cbd while chemotherapy actually kills people!
Do a study on chemo if you’re actually doing something good for people

Talking about the safety of CBD when there’s thousands of unsafe and unproven drugs on the market.
