My newest health supplement, I received my Cibdex CBD drops last week, their biggest bottle which has the same specs as Dixie Dew Drops. The price of Cibdex is the same as Dixie Drops at $150 but I like the taste, they added Stevia Extract to make it sweeter and they have peppermint flavor. 

I honestly felt like I was in a Clint Eastwood western getting sold snake oil on the old western town when I found out about this legal stuff but I had already heard the stories coming out of Colorado and California. I owe my recovery to CBD and getting my life back on track. I ordered the Hemp Vap e-cig device and cartridges last night from their website. This is a brand new legal CBD source you can vape in e-cig that they give you where there is zero combustion and it delivers CBD fast into your system at $60 for their ecig and 2 cartridges. I'll be reporting back on this device. 

It's amazing there have been little to no medical studies until now on CBD but after talking to caring, professional working parents of severe epilepsy kids, scientists and doctors know the seizures are going away and we are right there with our disease. Our disease is not any less severe as we all know and we don't get the respect like they do in the ER's. 

My Current CBD vs CVS Hemp oil/ health supplement war chest:
-Dixie Dew Drops- used daily once or twice as directed
-Cibdex CBD Drops  "       "  
-Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO) high concentrate CBD oil for emergencies only, only used once
-Hemp Vap CBD ecig- on its way!

I've been using the Vape Pen for about 2 years now.  It is smokeless and odorless.  It looks exactly like a regular "E-Cigarette".  I have travelled with mine through numerous airports, etc.  This pen is amazing.  At this point it is my only form of intake.  There's my 2 cents worth lol.

I am planning on switching to a small e-vape system in the next week or so! Plus WA state so I can pretty much carry what I need to on me. 

I've been looking into some different strains too.  There's pretty strong research to suggest that Cannabis rudderalis is the higher CBD content type of plant we've been looking for.  Many people are familiar with Cannabis sativa and Indica but their less popular sister contains significantly less to no THC content and is generally used for industrial hemp productions due to differences in growing cycles and chemical makeup. Just do a google search for cannabis rudderalis CBD content and you can find some interesting information!

Thanks for the strain info Jay, I forgot about that name. That's exactly what they call industrial hemp. Here in the US, they import tons of it and cold press the CBD out the stalks and stems and it has no thc, naturally. All the products I'm using in this thread are made from this hemp CBD and are specifically legal in all 50 states. Pretty amazing how far they've come figuring out how to extract it. I'll keep posting my findings along with my personal results to keep everyone educated. 

I've gone through extraordinary measures to come off all western meds over a 12 month process (Elavil-amitryptaline > Remeron > Xanax > Cypro > Prilosec > Dilaudid > etc.), getting horribly sick 4 times in the process this year and finally taking my last pill 3 months ago. Now I'm on regulate mode and my DNA/cells and inner core are back to normal, pre-cvs me. 

Where I live and most of the people on this board, we can't buy medical cannabis products that are available in the medical states. It's not an option and it probably will never be until the country goes legal which may take another 10/20 years. This CBD made from hemp is our only option at this point, so that's why I'm dedicating this thread to legal CBD and how it may help so many ailments and illnesses, CVS included - just ask me.

The majority of my episodes were caused by bad eating at night, bad eating in general, greasy or fried foods/dairy and feeling terrible the next morning. I was in one episode for a couple of years it felt, just as miserable as it gets. I've found my daily cbd diet along with new whole food/ juicing diet has me alive again like a normal human being. I want everyone to know the facts and keep PMing with messages and I'll get back with you.

Thanks for everyone's input, advice and questions! Never give up!

I received my Hemp Vap CBD ecig and I really can't see the need for it because I have felt so healthy lately. I tried it and it tastes like Strawberry but I'll just keep in the car or travel bag. Kind of neat with no smoke but just not needed now. I prefer sub-lingual drops under tongue with healthy hemp oil. 

I called the company and it's a low dosage per ecig cartridge. It's made from the same company who makes the RSHO which is def much, much more effective and worth it for emergencies, but for now all I need is Dixie Dew Drops or my remaining Cibdex drops for daily maintenance.

I prefer the natural flavored Dixie Drops over Cibdex simply for fact that Cibdex adds Stevia Extract, natural sweetener which lingers in my mouth. You have to wash it down with juices or something. With Dixie Drops you don't have any bad aftertaste.  I'm down to taking it just once a day now, pretty cool. With eating good meals and my wife and I are addicted to the Nutribullet, getting more greens and fruits for that natural glucose. I'm going Pineapple crazy lately with kale ,spinach, walnuts, water, melons, apples, pears, berries + 5 ice cubes. I might add this is an extractor not a juicer, you get all the fiber broken down through the cell walls of fruits with nuts, too. Sorry to threadjack my own CBD thread with Nutribullet but this thing is the best thing ever. I need to start my own Nutrilbullet thread, lol. This is no joke, godsend for energy and health.

$100 get one if not for glucose and health but for yummy palatable drinks on recovery mode. Always fill water to line and use sweet majority and you'll be in for a treat!  I Love that Pineapple!

oleyeller......... you just made my fng year mate!!!

ive long been waving the cannabis flag around here, and have taken a bit of heat for it, for trying to post some of this info on CBD etc. I actually took a long break from the board as a partial result, and partially cause I was just feeling good. same as you sounds like, primal style diet, 2nd try for me, 2nd longest remission in 10 years. I got off it, flared.   just stopped in tonight after having my first flare in quite awhile, and am thrilled to see this post up in this form. I am happy that this info is being allowed to be shared here. CBD is shaping up to be the story of the decade.

but good lord.....I had no idea that you could legally procure cbd oil in all 50. I am literally doing jumping jacks mate!!!! having been sick the last month, the number one, the NUMBER ONE thought that has been going thru my head, has been, man, I don't care what you have to do, you HAVE to do a CBD oil course. I shite you not. I want to do it for my CVS and as an anti cancer prophalactic as I am really scared about getting cancer of the euso from all the trauma over the years. I already know that smoking and eating it is very effective for my CVS, and have long advocated it. but that is trace amounts of CBD compared to a full on high CBD oil. you cant get the benefits as well from smoking or eating, just requires too much quantitiy.  I tell peeps I would be dead without cannabis at this point. I have known of CBD, CBN etc for 20 years but it is a very recent thing that we are now breeding and distilling pure/high CBD strains and products. super exciting. strains like charlottes. I have wanted to explore this for so long.   

I live in Alaska, where the law sucks. its legal, but there is one doctor in the state that does rx. and if you get a card, there is no dispensary system. so in essence, the state law, that already allows it, is stronger than the medical law. med law = 6 plants and on a list. state law = 25 plants, no list. yeah. lol.  I used to live in seattle, b4 CVS forced me to return to my familys home state of Alaska, and im just hating that WA full on legalized it and if only I lived back home, where I could simply walk into a store and buy CBD oil. was actually going to get ahold of some bros down there and find out if one could mail me some CBD oil.

so im just soiling myself right now man!!! ha haha. FINALLY.  i am so exicited. and I am so happy to read your success with it in regards to your cvs, and cant wiat to read the other post that you referenced! I will literally be doing research and ordering TONIGHT! I am soooooo stoked. cant believe it. I had no idea and I read up on this stuff constantly. I was just going to do full on research this week on the current ways and hows of getting oil in 2013.  so this just could not be more timely. good ole synchonicity! an Ecig! lols. cant believe it. I kept thinking to myself this last week, that the gov patented it like a good 10 years back, and I kept going, there MUST be some way to get it legally as a result of that........well, sure enough!! good ole ditchweed ruderalis!! gotta love loopholes.

[smile]  

the CNN story, as horrible as half of the interviewed folks were, had some fantastic segments, namely those on charlotte and chaz. I have been following chaz for awhile now, and can really empathize with his condition, given what we suffer. stuff like that is going to change peoples views, and when the cancer stuff starts getting more light.....its over.

thanks again for sharing, filled with hope when I have been fng crushed the last month. thank you for that alone. and that's why I love these boards!!!!!

hmmmm........so after a bit of research, current climate feels pretty shady to me. totally to be expected. in regards to some of the brands mentioned:

as soon as I saw they are getting this from the stalks and stems.....I facepalmed. anyone that knows cannabis knows there is little but fibre in the stems. this is just an attempt to bypass the laws, and as is the case in most of those scenarios, this sounds pretty shady. the other thing is the dose, therapeutic doses of CBD are MUCH higher than the concentrations in these tinctures. you would need to consume a bottle or 2 PER DAY, to reach recommended therapeutic dosages for things like cancer. what the dose might be for CVS is unknown of course. to me, this reeks of overpriced snake oil. beginning of the green rush, to be expected. the big money outfits are still getting it together. not saying this product is useless, we know CBD is good, just the current manu process to bypass the laws in regards to hemp vs cannabis oil sounds shady as hell. its meant to cash in on the CBD craze, that is all. also, as stated below, you need a bit of thc for good cannabis medicine. not a problem for the smoker but a problem for others.

I would seek out a good high CBD oil in a state like co or wa. derived from cannabis and not industrial hemp.  gives me great hope though, we are almost there. has Smoke said what "brand" he used? I didn't see a reference but might have missed it.

some interesting comments from Tamar Wise, former science director at Dixie, the manu of Dew Drops.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I'm tired of so called CBD companies claiming that what they provide is medicine. Anyone using a CBD from hemp product please be aware of what you are actually getting b/c it is not what you think. These formulations start with a crude and dirty hemp paste (contaminated with microbial life! I have seen this and these organisms decompose the paste. The paste perhaps even contains residual solvent and other toxins as the extraction is done in CHINA) made in a process that actually renders it unfit for human consumption. What these companies are doing is criminal and dangerous. In fact MJNA's RSHO is literally just this hemp paste diluted in hemp seed oil. No refinement at all!!! And what Dixie Botanicals is offering is beyond disturbing. I cannot keep quiet anymore. And since I formulated most of these products as head of Dixie Science, I feel responsible for spreading the truth. I left Dixie for ethical reasons but it is not enough to just walk away. These frauds need to be exposed for what they are. Look out for my tell all article coming soon and feel free to contact me directly with questions as it is time to blow the whistle. Let's keep this industry pure and safe.

And with that being said, the work that The Realm of Caring is doing should be commended. It is nice to see a group that cares about patient safety and the purity of their medicines. Kudos to the Josh Stanley and his brother and their group. Keep up the good work! You are an inspiration!"

"Tamar Wise Hello everyone, I just wanted to make a quick clarification. CBD from cannabis and CBD from hemp are scientifically the same thing. It is the legality that separates them right now. So you are right that it is illegal to ship anything cannabis, including CBD from cannabis (referred to as 'drug type' strain) across state lines. But it IS technically legal to ship CBD from hemp (non-psychoactive fiber type) as long as it has less than .3% THC and is actually from hemp not cannabis. What bothered me was the quality of extract this company was using (very crude) and the lack of any standards or quality control for safety. So while it IS legal to ship this hemp CBD medicine, it is not as pure and safe as these companies will lead you to believe. Nor is it as strong or efficient as alternatives. With that being said, there are companies out there that are offering safe CBD medicine from hemp, they are just quietly going through clinical studies first...so no product is available yet. And CBD from cannabis can be concentrated more b/c the extract and grow can be controlled. Hope this helps.

"Tamar Wise That is a very valid question, Wendy. For severe endocannabinoid deficiencies (cancer and seizures are now being looked at as being caused by too little natural endocannabinoids being made or too little CB receptors being available) addition of phytocannabinoids from either cannabis or hemp will help b/c they are the same. The ultimate difference comes down to not only the plant strains themselves but the formulations and subsequent ratios of the cannabinoids as well as terpenoids and flavonoids (plus other unknown synergistic elements~ cannabis/hemp have over 500 constituents). For example, a CO2 extract from cannabis will have a different profile and therefore effect than say an alcohol extract made from the exact same cannabis plant. Similarly the same extraction (say alcohol) done on cannabis and hemp will yield different oils with ratios inherent to the separate strains themselves (ie hemp has more CBG, cannabis has more THC etc). Although alcohol will extract both very similarly, there will be subtle differences based on each plants original makeup. What exacerbates the CBD situation is that most of the hemp companies use an unknown extraction method and what is extracted is a different part of the plant than what is commonly used (most people extract from bud or leaf of either hemp or cannabis~b/c that is where the highest concentration is.) So now not only are you comparing the differences in the strains (hemp v MJ) themselves but an extract done on flower of one vs say the stalk of the other are even more different. So what you are seeing is that right now most hemp CBD oil contains a LOT of cellulose and lignin and other "filler" molecules that don't serve a medicinal purpose b/c they are taken from the part of the plant that has the LEAST amount of cannabinoids (for the legal issues around THC): the stem/stalk. These filler molecules essentially just muddy up the extract, making it more difficult for your body to absorb the needed cannabinoids. B/c they are not as accessible. Conversely, an extract made from cannabis will be from the bud or leaf and therefore it won't have as much cellulose etc "blocking" the cannabinoids' action. It basically comes down to the higher amount of control formulators of CANNABIS CBD have right now over growing the plant, the solvent used and part of the plant extracted. Plus b/c cannabis has been altered by humans so much, we see these high CBD concentrations. Whereas hemp has been cultivated for seed and stalk production and not cannabinoid content (yet) so it's CBD levels are way lower. And it is even lower in the stalk! You are basically looking at a weaker more muddied oil from the beginning and that is why it is not as effective. On top of this the process used to break the outer stalk from the inner hurd before extraction, is called retting and it is only supposed to be used for textiles NOT anything ingested. This is due to the microorganisms that are involved in the retting process. They seep into the stalks from the ground and break down the stalk internally so the outer layer can be stripped off. These microorganisms are usually killed in the textile process done to the stalks...but some hemp companies are instead extracting the stalk and including the microlife in their oil!!! Now you have the added element of microbial decomposition. Current hemp CBD oil doesn't work as well b/c it is weaker and less pure but it could also be due to this micro life "eating" away at the medicinal molecules over time. I know, its gross. With all this being said, hemp can be extracted correctly to create formulations similar to cannabis but right now no one in the hemp realm is doing it yet Another factor is that cannabis has a higher amount of THC and some epilepsy patients find that the addition of some THC to their CBD helps immensely (some say 10:1 CBD to THC or other ratios.) Because hemp naturally has way less THC, this could be another factor; you can't get that perfect balance of THC and CBD b/c there is so little THC. Hope this helps, sorry for the long ramble!

Tamar Wise Well said Kane. The base concentrations of cannabinoids in cannabis vs hemp have a lot to do with efficacy. Plus the part of the plant extracted determines how much "crap" is extracted into the oil along with the cannabinoids. Even if you could get the high concentration or specific THC to CBD ratio in hemp that you find in cannabis, if you extract the from the stalk you get a ton of cellulose that "blocks" the cannabinoids regardless of their concentration or ratio. It is just a much less efficient overall model than being able to control your own cannabis CBD formulations

November 19 at 11:26am


Tamar Wise The stalk of cannabis/hemp is similar to the wood of trees! It contains almost 80% cellulose, lignin, pectin, hemicellulose and other heavily branched, filler molecules. In fact, I like to think of it as a molecular tumbleweed, trapping CBD and other smaller molecules. I have attached a pic of cellulose and lignin. Now imagine a bunch of these molecules in your extract, overlapping and blocking efficacy....

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
id say that pretty much covers it. disgruntled employee? you be the judge. I agree with everything Tamar said science-wise. it would give me great pause in spending the money Dixie is charging for their oil which is horribly expensive at current recommended therapeutic doses.

Thanks for encouragement and info, Demon cleaner and I know everyone has their concerns! I just wanted to check in, it's been awhile. I've been too busy living my life again, feeling healthy and selling houses! Life is good. On Dixie, there are 2 other different companies you can use for sub-lingual drops if you don't trust them but it sure has worked for me and they have good test results from Canna labs.

Cibdex drops from Hempmedspx and now there is a new company called Bluebird Botanicals out of CO selling CBD made from cannabis sativa strain, legal in all 50. This is a first!!! This could be the ticket for some of you who don't trust the industrial hemp extracted cbd  I need to order some once my Dixie drops get low but they don't have any testing results yet from any companies. I am on these companies like a fly on fly paper!  I'm all about trying different CBD companies b/c this stuff has literally saved my life. Dixie sent out an email talking about this employee, who knows, but that stuff has helped me like nothing else on the planet. I can't go to WA or CO so I can only buy from these 3 companies right now.

With daily drops, I also have been using my Hemp Vap CBD vape pen and it does deliver the cbd quickly. My wife even used it when she had stomach cramps and she as like " oh my gosh, it really does calm the stomach area". Gail has these O-pens in CO very similar to this pen which is CBD only, no thc.

Amazing. Who cares what other people say, look at what it's done for me getting my life back after 7 miserable years of CVS, 40 times getting admitted, sick for weeks, years lost.

PM anytime with questions, this is the real deal. I was headed to the graveyard, literally hanging on at 135 pounds, 6/1 at my worst last year, now I'm back to 150 (above normal weight for me) feeling like Superman every day. It's a miracle and I'm also off all western meds now, it's truly amazing how far I've come.

Merry Christmas and good health to all! I hope everyone is winning their battle, too.
Remember small steps and you can beat this monster down!!

I found their email they sent me talking about this Ms. Wise.  I love Dixie's cinnamin flavored drops that's why I like them plus Cannalabs website shows they have legitimate CBD value like they state and that holds water for me plus passes all toxin tests. Lookup Cannalabs and go to test results. This is one of the best testing companies in the business from what I've learned. I will def keep ordering Dixie cinnamin b/c I like the taste over Cibdex with Stevia extrac which is too funky but be the judge for yourself. It's fun to get healthy again and kick CVS's you know what back into it's cave!!! I hope Dr. Fleisher and Dr Linder, Dr V  and all the Drs are taking note on CBD and our own bodies endocannnaboid system, especially for these poor kids.

Here is that email and please go to Bluebird Botanicals or Cibdex-Hemp Meds PX if Dixie does not seem like the company for you. Don't deny yourself relief from CVS and possibly hope at having a normal life again like the epilepsy kids and myself have done! This lady really ticked them off good, LOL!

Press Release -Product Quality and Efficacy Clarification
Dixie Botanicals, Denver CO – November 26, 2013
 
It has come to our attention that Dixie’s former head of science has recently made several salacious accusations about the quality and efficacy of our Dixie Botanicals Cannabidiol (CBD) Hemp Oil Wellness product. While typically, we would not respond to any unfounded allegations, we felt that we needed to speak up. These blatantly false comments are causing fear and ultimately harm to the thousands of people who every day benefit from Dixie Botanical’s products.
 
Dixie Botanical’s prides itself on the quality and efficacy of our products. We use the highest quality raw material and rigorously test each batch of our products to ensure that they meet the highest standards. All of our products are designed to meet FDA ingredient and labeling compliance and we obtain Certificate of Analysis (CoA) on each batch of raw material to ensure that it is clean of any microbials or solvents, and is high in hemp-based CBD.
 
We are shocked by Ms. Wise’s allegations that we do not thoroughly test our products as she was responsible for and oversaw these efforts during her tenure as Dixie’s Head of Science from July 5th, 2011 to August 2nd, 2013. To suggest that we use bad product is not only an indictment of the Company, but of Ms. Wise herself and her own scientific practices. To prove the point, we have published test results, including microbial tests, CoA confirmation tests, and product test from the later part of Ms. Wise’s tenure. Needless to say, all raw materials and final product passed our rigorous testing procedures. To view these, please go to DixieBotanicals.com/lab-certified-quality/.
 
Ms. Wise and members of her Science team resigned after a dispute with the Company. They believed they were entitled to ownership of intellectual property that was created while they were paid employees of the Company. Clearly, we disagreed since we believed this was part of their job description and we funded their entire research. We accepted their resignation and quickly filled the Head of Science position with Shellene Suemori, a Cellular and Molecular Biologist who has worked on several NASA funded projects. She continues to bring Dixie Botanicals and the science behind our products to the next level.
 
Dixie Botanical is disappointed in Ms. Wise and her tactics. We understand that she and the other employees that resigned are embarking on a new endeavor called Big Hemp, a company that will compete directly with Dixie Botanicals. This clarifies, in our mind, the objectives of Ms. Wise’s remarks and makes it even more apparent that her motives are less than genuine.
 

We have no ill feelings towards Ms. Wise and no interest in fighting with former employees - this industry is too small and our mission too big. However, we do have a responsibility to our investors, our employees and most importantly, our customers to not allow the actions of a disgruntled individual harm the hard work of our team.

We hope this is the end of this story. If not, we are prepared to resort to any and all legal remedies at our disposal to protect the integrity of our company and ensure our customers trust the high standards to which we measure ourselves.

For more information, please contact Christie Lunsford at clunsford@dixiebotanicals.com.
 
Thank you,
The Dixie Botanicals Team

happy holidays oleyeller!

could not be more excited for you! so glad SOME ONE on these boards is exploring this route and its great to get your feedback sofar. you inspired me to get ahold of the one clinic doing RX for mmj in AK, and I am going to go ahead and get my card, which will then enable me to buy seeds from anywhere I want to. I was not aware that the law allows you to bypass import laws, so that is awesome! I will be getting charlottes as well as some other high CBD strains, and make my own oil, since I am not that comfortable with what ive seen sofar in the industrial hemp products. been wanting to do this for years, and had no idea you could bypass seed shipping laws. so glad the oil is working well for you!

ya, I looked into all 3 companies you listed.  bluebirds hemp oil is also derived from HEMP, not cannabis. the fact that is a sativa, is of no consequence, it is still industrial hemp. there are like 40 some strains of industrial hemp and not all are ruderalis. you pretty much have indicas, sativas, and ruderalis as the 3 main strains. of those, many have been bred since it was outlawed in the day, to have little to no THC present, and this includes sativa's that are grown for industrial purposes. they are still sourcing the material from the stems and stalks to get around the THC laws from what I understand.  so strain, ie sativa, has little meaning, right now its either cannabis based (plant based, cant ship, superior quality) or industrial hemp based (inferior quality, pulp based, no legal problems to ship).

from bluebirds webby:

The main ingredient in our CBD Hemp oil is a cannabidiol (CBD) extract derived from the industrial cultivation of Cannabis sativa. Industrial hemp is ideal for cannabidiol (CBD) extractions as it is naturally high in CBD and low in THC, making it superior to most high-THC strains as far as CBD content is concerned."

that statement is a bit misleading, as industrial hemp is not the ideal source of high CBD oil, it is the ideal LEGAL source atm. industrial hemp averages CBD of around 1 to 5%.  cannabis cultivars that are being bred for high CBD , such as charlottes are looking at approaching 20% or so CBD, I think charlottes is around 17, 18% cbd.  so conversely, the extracts that you can achieve with the cannabis cultivars are exponentially more potent than that which may be achieved from industrial hemp sources.  at least bluebird's oils are of a potency that starts to approach appropriate dosage levels. the site even says, for effective treatment, 10x the recommended dosage may be needed, and that is correct from current science. I am glad to hear of your success at low dosage. its a pity it does not seem strong enough for a case like Smokes.  you would need to chug an entire bottle of Dixie to get a good dosage.

I am super stoked Dixie drops are working for you. not sure what happened with tamar, but the comments made could not be more spot on from a science point of view and that def gives me pause about their manufacturing process and sourcing the material from industrial hemp in china, not grown for these purposes. I have no doubt these products contain the % of CBD that is claimed, so they should certainly have a positive effect. I am just concerned about other adulterants. if I lived in CO or CA I would buy a bottle and have it tested myself at a lab I think.   I would like to believe that these companies want to help people and provide good medicine, but the fact is, there is a TREMENDOUS amount of money at stake here, and the guys that get in first, stand to make a lot of it. there is a disturbing lack of regulation in the supplement industry. they don't HAVE to test anything. so it really is buyer beware. 

oh cool, just saw you posted the email from Dixie, thanks for taking the time! I will have to go look at the cannalabs webby.

awesome to hear of your weight gain, I am same frame healthy 150, I bottomed out at 115 a few years back at my worst. primal diets have allowed me to live pretty well the last couple when I can stick to them and im about 150 today, first time in many many years.

Just got back from dinner, GREAT post!! it sounds like we are on the same plan, lol. Why can't this country just get its act together so we can give american grown CBD to everyone? I don't think we are too far away as a country. Once they get Charlotte Web strain everywhere so much suffering will stop with so many diseases. These prices kind of suck but we don't even buy meds anymore. I have emergency Valium and Dilaudid suppositories which I hope I never use again. I thought Bluebirds statement was odd, too. I sent them an email asking for test results and to clarify what that means. Also another site that's tested Dixie is Analytical360. Check them out, too. I truly believe these companies do a thorough and precise job after reading reviews and so many companies use them to test their products. Thanks again for the info and let me know how your progress goes! Also beware of those daily western meds, I truly believe they do more harm in the long run making it worse. I'm so glad I'm off Elavil, that stuff became the devil/culprit of so many issues. helped at first, but then it became a nightmare for me.

I'm off to watch Whale Wars, I love Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherds!

Thanks again Demoncleanr bro!! Merry Christmas and Happy New year!

ha ha, love me some paul Watson too!

could not agree more about western meds my man, I am firmly against them and only use opiates when I am in absolutely the worst shape painwise. I have declined both amytrip and reglan RX time and time again, as I feel its barking up the wrong tree, and especially with reglan, the med is pure poison. amitrip is not much better. i have declined working with Dr V. in a patient relationship over the same objections.  and opiates, ya, last resort. I fully support very limited use of pure opiates for pain like we suffer, but like single dose type stuff.  I don't like to take them just on the fact that so many are combined with acetaminophen , which is the number one cause of liver failure in this country. at least I have access to diluadid and morphene suppostitories now, which at least are fairly pure opiates. idealy, perfect world, I would prefer to smoke natural opium. period.  benzo's are another med I decline to put in my body. at this point the only meds I take are Carafate after a flare, and the occasional opiate. I havnt used the morphene supps yet, hadn't filled my RX yet for this last flare, but I have hope they may be useful to fully abort, as I know a shot of morphene will stop it cold, but no one will give one to me, lol. gets frustrating when you have doctors tell you "how do you expect to get better if you wont take the meds rx'd to you". fng rub a pill on it mentality. I don't take some of the meds cause they have HORRIBLE side effect profiles and the risk to benefit ratio is not there for me. its not like its cause I don't like the name of the med! ive been chewed out for not taking reglan. and im like, do you know what that stuff does to people? there are people on this board that have been damaged by reglan, and still suffer from CVS, now they have nice little ticks to go along with CVS. no thanks.

I have long used cannabis as my go to medicine, but during a flare, its like, man, if this was just like 3 times as strong. that's where concentrates will make the diff. I plan to get the highest CBD strains I can find, with dif THC levels,  as well as a couple super sedating couchlock strains. I am fairly confident I can manage my CVS with those type of meds, combined with diet change. as you have stated, I am also firmly in the change your diet camp.  it has reaped the best benefits for me sofar, without question.  people find it easier to take a pill than to change their lifestyle. changing your diet is hard work, but it pays off. we have such compromised digestive systems, we cant afford to load our bodies up with crap, we cant process it. diet is key I believe, at least until you restore some sort of baseline health, then you can indulge now and then, but fundamental changes have to be made to get your system back in good health.  a CVS flare is too disruptive to your system, like everything shuts down. you need to reset your gut.

well, at least we can now grow hemp in this country again as of this year, so we will have some good domestic hemp to use , as far as the hemp process goes. and if people start breeding the industrial strains for CBD content, that could get more interesting. at least there is a legal loophole at the moment for folks that don't live in a mmj state. my concern with the hemp process, is its still so early, I wonder about the foreign sourcing for this stuff that is coming from places that produce it industrially, not for medicinal purposes. 

indeed, the prices will be high to start, but like you said, I would rather put money down on that then a 300.00 course of prevacid or something silly like that. and never mind that it actually WORKS!! so in that light, doc bills , etc, its not tooo bad. and it will only come down in the next year as tons of other companies jump on the money train.  still have to laugh, I couldn't believe I could find CBD oil on Amazon! its coming, and its gaining a hell of a lot of steam. things have moved really fast in the last 5 years, if we get another 5 like that, I feel like we will be there. if the WA and CO laws stick for a few years, there will be no reason to hold it back anymore. already, the cartels dealing in CO are not dealing with weed anymore, there is no money left in it. its doing exactly what it should, and crushing the black market. I think the 2 main medical conditions that will help drive it will be epileptic type conditions and cancer. because the success stories are incredible in both cases. currently it is outlawed due to "no acceptable medical use".  well, that is simply not going to hold up for another decade. when you have a substance that stops cancer,  it will HAVE to be rescheduled. and the kicker will be, oh actually it has 100s of medical uses . the lie will die soon and it wont be long. other countries are starting to say F US drug policy, we are decriminalizing this plant. its literally got to be about the stupidest substance to ever be criminalized and you can thank the petroleum industry for that. 100 years of big pharma and we are going to find out that a plant with no med value can take care of problems 100 years of pills couldn't touch. it really is the icing on that cake. your body does not produce its own amitrip. it does produce its own cannabinoids. which medicine is going to be in better harmony with your body?

2/14/14- Update on my amazing progress:

-Almost 7 months episode free, can you believe it after 50 episodes in 8 years/ 40 times being admitted, I honestly felt stuck in an episode for 5 long years.

- I have not had one western med, been off all of them since September. No more, I owe getting off these terrible meds to breaking the CVS spell with perfect diet, exercise and CBD. They are terrible in the long run, especially with CVS on the stomach but everyone is different. They wrecked my stomach daily. 

-I still take daily cinnamon Dixie Drops CBD drops and CBD hempvap pen, nothing else on as far as CBD concerned, I'll always take this as supplement, now Obama just signed new farm bill so we can grow our own legal industrial hemp in the US for CBD and won't have to import it. this is state wide- big win for textiles, alt-fuels, medicines, etc. Pretty exciting times on that end. 

-I still take COq10, B complex, L-carn daily, creatine from GNC- I always will.

-NO more dairy,milk chocolate,  processed foods, etc. ( THIS IS HUGE)

-2 Nutribullets daily for cell glucose energy (See Dr Boles/Dr Linder on this) and health, don't sit on this, get this Nutribullet extractor, its not a juicer so to speak, you get all fibers. (remember I did all of this at once while tapering off Elavil, Xanax, Prilosec and Remeron which took 6 weeks)

- I'm happier and healthier than I've been in over a decade, even before I got CVS, I'm 41 and I feel 28

- Had my first big closing this week on big real estate deal and working with tons of buyers and I have 2 listings, real estate hours seem to work out perfectly when I had CVS, impossible to have a normal job as we all know. Work for yourself if you can or find a trade, my advice until you get healthy.

Good luck folks, if I can do it, you can too!!

thanks for continuing to update ole, so glad things are still going well for you, really stoked for you man!

I have also been on the diet I have used previously the last few weeks and feel awesome, cured my IBS immediately, and it was literally crippling me the previous 2 months after my last flare. this will be the 3rd time I have employed a diet hardcore, over the last 6 or so years, and every time, it pays huge dividends. I cannot stress the effectiveness of a primal style diet enough, it seems to work for many that realy try to adopt it as a lifestyle change. my challenge is keeping my weight up while on them, sofar, I managed to gain a few back after losing 5 or so up front, so going well atm. I do a lot of juicing as well, though I don't have the bullet.

my personal diet results along with generous cannabis use, just to chime in with your results : first= full remission for 2 years. went back to work, felt amazing.  2nd= little different diet plan,  around 9 months clear, had had to stop diet due to weight loss at around 4 or 5 months in. the 2nd one pretty much took me out of a 3 year cycle of near coalescence of CVS into severe IBS during recoverys. It stopped that cycle totally.   and I would call this the 3rd serious effort and around 3 weeks of normal bliss sofar. there is no doubt in my mind of the efficacy of the diet at this point. underlying conditions like SIBO and malabsorbtion seem to have been cleared up by the last diet and this one seems to have taken effect rather instantly. im not getting any dieoff symptoms this time around, and I attribute that to the effectiveness of the earlier diet I did last year.    

otherwise, same here man, no pharma, just a little kharma from the green genie,  and good diet. should be able to get carded in april or so, and be able to make some high strength CBD oils at home by fall.

there is a ton of CBD legislation being pushed atm, everytime I open yahoo, I see another story, it is almost daily now, because of all the cancer cases and things like dravets also being so compelling publicly. this gray area is going to get cleaned up quickly, and between that and domestic hemp also being cleared, high quality CBD products will soon be available to most of the country. once people come to understand that CBD has nothing to do with getting high, and everything to do with getting healed, it will radically change the perception about med mmj and cannabis in general. it is really exciting that by this time next year or the following, this will be a completely legal and legitimate option for most people on this board to try if they want and already is as far as the startup companies that have been mentioned earlier in the post.  

great news oleyeller, so happy for ya! and grats on taking the bull by the horns and managing your own health with your own informed ideas! those docs will kill you, lol.

I am going to try this and see if my symptoms let up. I used to be a avid marijuana user and still support all uses of it. Including recreational use. I do not use it any more since i have CVS symptoms to see if it will let up my symptoms. I haven't seen any change since I had an episode yesterday. This interests me because it is from hemp and not the flower it self. I cannot have any THC or it will ruin my trial.
