My very hopeful finding on CBD oil after taking for 8 weeks. This is not Hemp seed oil, this is made from imported legal hemp not seeds. It helped me ween off Elavil and many other meds over a few months which some of us may know is very brutal. Appetite and energy has been back to normal pre CVS. I saw the Dr today and let him know what these Dr’s are finding with it helping epilepsy.

I take Dixie Dew Drops * oz Hemp oil for $150 which has ***mg CBD in the oil,Cibdex just came out, too with *** mg bottles. I also ordered some Real scientific hemp oil (RSHO) for $600 and this stuff works wonders at % CBD using about  rice grains full under my tongue it is highly concentrated. Pricey but it stopped an episode the only time I've used it.

Both are these are used sublingual under tongue to get to the brain quick. They are supplements and I can honestly tell you they have changed my life since coming off all the meds and changing my diet.PM me anytime if you have private message or need suggestions. I'll be updating the thread with my updates.

Regulation of nausea and vomiting by cannabinoids.

Source

Department of Psychology and Collaborative Neuroscience Program, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, N1G 2W1, Canada. DA-9789

Abstract

Considerable evidence demonstrates that manipulation of the endocannabinoid system>



regulates nausea and vomiting in humans and other animal
s. The anti-emetic effect of cannabinoids has been shown across a wide variety of animals that are capable of vomiting in response to a toxic challenge. CB(1) agonism suppresses vomiting, which is reversed by CB(1) antagonism, and CB(1) inverse agonism promotes vomiting. Recently, evidence from animal experiments suggests that cannabinoids may be especially useful in treating the more difficult to control symptoms of nausea and anticipatory nausea in chemotherapy patients, which are less well controlled by the currently available conventional pharmaceutical agents. Although rats and mice are incapable of vomiting, they display a distinctive conditioned gaping response when re-exposed to cues (flavours or contexts) paired with a nauseating treatment. Cannabinoid agonists (Δ(9) -THC, HU-210) and the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) inhibitor, URB-597, suppress conditioned gaping reactions (nausea) in rats as they suppress vomiting in emetic species. Inverse agonists, but not neutral antagonists, of the CB(1) receptor promote nausea, and at subthreshold doses potentiate nausea produced by other toxins (LiCl). The primary non-psychoactive compound in cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), also suppresses nausea and vomiting within a limited dose range. The anti-nausea/anti-emetic effects of CBD may be mediated by indirect activation of somatodendritic 5-HT(1A) receptors in the dorsal raphe nucleus; activation of these autoreceptors reduces the release of 5-HT in terminal forebrain regions. Preclinical research indicates that cannabinioids, including CBD, may be effective clinically for treating both nausea and vomiting produced by chemotherapy or other therapeutic treatments.

Cannabidiol (CBD) Fact Sheet

Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and is the active ingredient in Dixie X medicinal hemp products from Dixie Elixirs & Edibles. The information here has been provided as a resource. Notes about citations and the research follow.

  • completely non-psychoactive. It is safe and non-toxic. Can never over-dose on CBD.
  • It is the second most common cannabinoid in cannabis sativa and indica plants and the primary cannabinoid in hemp plants.
  • Counters some of the negative effects of THC(ie. paranoia, intoxication, quick heartbeat (tachycardia) short term memory loss, lethargy/sedation, etc.)
  • Combining THC and CBD have been found to increase clinical efficacy while reducing adverse effects, even with only trace amounts of THC added. (CBD works synergistically with THC, bolstering its medical effects while moderating its psychoactivity)
  • Some medical benefits include:
    • Has been found to relieve convulsions and other movement disorders. Is an anti-spasmodic and antiepileptic.
    • At high doses (more than a few hundred mg) CBD can be sedative and helps insomniacs stay asleep longer. In low doses, CBD has been found to be alerting.
    • It is also effective in reducing inflammation (anti-inflammatory), anxiety (anxiolytic),  nausea (anti-emetic)
    • Is a powerful pain reliever (analgesic) It is effective in both peripheral neuropathic pain and central pain
    • It has been shown to inhibit cancer cell growth (anticarcinogenic)
    • It is an immunomodulator and helps the immune system function more efficiently
    • Is a neuroprotectant and a powerful antioxidant. It has applications in treatment for Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, cerebral ischemia, and brain and nerve damage from stroke.
    • It is an anti-psychotic and recent research has indicated it is effective in treatment of schizophrenia
    • CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including: rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, PTSD, epilepsy, MS, antibiotic-resistant infections and neurological disorders, to name a few.
    • Has been found to be effective in treating gastrointestinal disorders like IBD and Crohn’s Disease

Although I am not suppose to allow urls, I am keeping NIH on here.

I hope everyone can go to UTube and look for the stories mentioned.  I actually saw the story on the news awhile ago when my state was voting for medical marijuana.  It is amazing. Should you have difficulty finding the information, please PM the poster.

how long does the effect of a "rice grain size" of dose work ?it seems expensive @$150 but if it works its so much cheaper than the ER...how long does a bottle seem to last? thank you for posting about this  so many medicines and cures are found in nature not in a lab.  Carole

That couple rice grains size I was referring to was from the RSHO tube of heavy concentrated CBD oil, I really couldn't believe I was paying $600 for a tube but you know what after taking the Dixie Drop 2-3 times a day with their recommended dosage and feeling it's 'calming" effects for my digestive system, I wanted a stronger backup lets say solution in case I had a morning that was going south in a bad way very quickly. 

One morning (the last time I felt bad) I had this and squirted the RSHO into my mouth and since it was stronger than the Dixie Drops, I really felt my body and stomach go back to normal very quickly that was my “Edison moment” where I knew the drops and this was working. No more vibrating stomach which could lead to bad news bears city. Appetite perfect and energy, sleep totally normal again. Both of these are just great one is much much more concentrated. 

It's 100% plant derived so the scientists say you can get good benefits from low to high doses. Obviously someone with Dravets Syndrome epilepsy might need some more having 300 seizures a day, but for me and my horrible last 7 years, my life is back on track, my body, my cells, everything is normalizing again. 

If I can get off 7 years of Elavil, Remeron, Phenegren, Cypro, Xanax, Omeprazole, Fentynal patches, guess what you can too! Just do it safe like I did with my Dr's weening little by little then get that CBD for withdrawal and continuous usage like you will for coq10, carn and b-complex. In the beginning the Elavil helped frequency but zombie side effects trying to work and heat aversion were unbearable.

This is my work in progress which is a combination of things happening. After my last episode I had to do something drastic and read that POST " Good news from old member", flew to colorado and got the facts and found out CBD was legal in all 50 states. I knew if it could help this CVS guy and the epilepsy kids, it could help us, too. Complete 180, my life is back.

Everyone know food smells can make you gag, I bet most of us CVSers can't really get up in the morning and cook eggs, bacon, smoothies and toast. For 7 years I couldn't cook in the morning, I would get gaggy and lose appetite. With my new CBD and good food diet I have cooked breakfast for 8 weeks strait eating right away. This is amazing in itself but here I am eating better than I have in my whole life. This is no bogus science, you see how the epilepsy kids seizures have gone from 300 day to a couple to none.

If anyone needs real CBD success stories, I'll send you some links I've been collecting similar to Charlotte Figi's miracle story. Our CVS is real similar in many ways - neuro- brain to gut issue. I have this thing pinned and I believe it's going to really help the CVS family.

I am amazed actual neuroscientists who treat kids with epilepsy have not even heard of CBD after CNN's Sanja Gupta segment. We have to educate everyone, even the doctors!!

Is there a way to make this stuff yourself? I only ask because the dope is legalized in WA where I am so I could make something like that pretty easy with a friends trimmings/ect.  Also once you eliminate stupid CHS grass can help quite a bit at times. Although strangely not ALL the time for me. 

I realize posting stuff like that might be toeing the line so if necessary pm me the info?

You probably could but might leave it to the licensed professionals in your medical mj state to direct you to getting the right strain or tincture high in CBD. I had to find a legal alternative made from industrial hemp b/c I'm in a non medical mj state. I would assume, a lot like the Stanley Bros of Colorado who made Charlottes's Web for Charlotte Figi that if you found a high strain CBD plant you could do it like they have through extraction however they do it. That's the key all that stuff is known by the medical mj pros. Google High CBD strains, then cross check with your local dispensary.

They are slowly working on CBD strains in those medical states with all the recent publicity and it's work on epilepsy kids. Google the CNN w/ Dr. Sanja Gupta segment- you'll be a believer. I am having stunning, turnaround results health wise battling CVS. If does not get you high and dizzy, it only seems to normalize internal, GI and neurological issues and down to the cellular level from what I can tell with my own testing. 
 
Here is what Dixie Botanicals says about their products> Our hemp oil-derived wellness products are legal to consume both here in the U.S. and in many countries abroad. The FDA considers hemp oil as a dietary supplement product and our parent company MJNA imports its naturally-derived raw hemp oil under approved tariff codes to its FDA- registered and GMP-certified facility in the U.S. Dixie Botanicals’ parent company, Medical Marijuana, Inc., MJNA, is a publicly traded company that does not grow, sell or distribute any substances in ways that violate United States Law or the Controlled Substance Act."

I have a good amount of experience with tinctures, extracts, oils, waxes, and "other".  None of that should be a problem for me.

I'm also familiar with different medical strains and their effects? I understand and have done a good bit of experimenting with different types in my own grow situations. I have a couple of really credible seed banks I have used with success in the past-

Finding a high CBD strain shouldn't be a problem for me....the problem I have is not having enough cash to even begin to buy a commercial bottle of this oil.  From the searches I've seen I keep looking and can't find anything really reasonably priced.  I get that it's less than the ER visit but I don't pay for those anyway and I'm not going to start anytime soon.  I can't get any help with supplements or alternative treatments, and because CVS is so freaking obscure medicare/medicaid doesn't approve much for me except my: Amy,Ativan,zofr, and phener.
I could easily get people to give me money to grow some grass though, and add a CBD strain to my room with random profits?
I will get with some of my canada/swiss/dutch friends [smile] One of them is bound to know how to make this oil- it can't be much different then extracting THC from regular flowers.
Thanks for the post tho and the info...i'd love to get off this amytrip it makes me sleep sooo much.

Your welcome, I just want to help people from suffering through this miserable disease and give them some form of hope. You and I are basically from different planets, LOL. You live in a medical MJ state where they allow so much and I'm in a non medical mj state so all I can do it buy the legal hemp oil online. I'm a slave to their prices until it comes down. We were spending hundreds to thousands of dollars a month on meds and hospital bills, so this is def not a bad alternative even though it's from industrial non-thc hemp oil. Well it turns out legal hemp oil is rich in CBD, good thing for me since I don't live in the 15-20 or so medical MJ states. I'm very happy I found out about this stuff watching the CNN segment. The big kicker was reading that post on this forum, " Good news from old member".

I can't thank our Moderator, Ginny, enough for posting that "Good news from old member" post!! THANK U GINNY!!

 Reading this post a few months ago and watching those epilepsy kids stop having seizures, I figured hey this might help me and it has dramatically, complete 180, back to feeling like my regular self again, not an empty shell of my former self. 

Keep your heads up, folks. You can beat this thing, too!!

yeah i hear you...i'm just getting my feet back under me from the last five years or so of this.  Crazy how MJ prohibition has retarded the medical advancements we could have had by now right?   Personally I've opted out of Medical anything to keep my gun rights intact and my record clean.  Where I am everyone else is doing it, and regular possession is decriminalized, so while not strictly always "legal", I do have a lot of experience with nearly everything cannabis related [smile]

This gives me a lot of hope because yeah you are exactly correct-  High THC content doesn't mean anything to my CVS. Not one bit, but from time to time I have noticed a difference in different strains I've had during episodes.  It's always been a crap-shoot though...sometimes having a puff or two will noticably calm my episodes, and others it just makes me sleepy without addressing the nausea.   At this point i suspect that those times were ones with and without a good CBD content.  There's a ton of grass resources and message boards out there from people in Canada/Euro who have a lot more experience with medical and research of different things- surprisingly Spain is where i've gotten some really good information.  I would encourage you to try some of those sites just to see what people have to say about CBD content- they've been doing it for a lot longer than anyone else in the world [smile] 


I won't post links but if you want I can PM you some of the places I use for my info regarding all this stuff [smile]

My current daily regimen for feeling normal like a human again success:

Jarrows Coq10 Ubiquinol 
B Complex - cheap hard pilll kind
L-carnitine - cheap drug store bought like B complex
Dixie Dew Drops, largest bottle they sell, CBD drops
A few bottled spring waters
2 Nutriblasts from my awesome Nutribullet
Good whole food diet

I feel like GIZMO from Gremlins, Don't eat after midnight or late!!

*RSHO CBD paste only for emergency b/c its much stronger than anything else on market, I used this once after feeling a "tingle", boom gone just like for me just like the guy in the thread "Good news from old member" posted by Ginny while back.
