CBD Oils and Topicals Resource Information

The most comprehensive site for CBD’s of all uses. We spent the last year studying, researching and using all the best CBD’s and came to our own findings then Forbes printed a list of the best 25 CBD’s and we found we’d done a nice job on our own research. On that page, you’ll find many links to useful tools to select and apply the best CBD’s. Remember that sublingual drops are always best first effort as they are perfectly absorbed, don’t clear through the liver on first pass, and have good dosage titration. While our past years’ experience with CBD’s in our patients has been positive in general, it is important to remember they are not helping everyone. Here is what we’ve learned that is not in the general press:
  1. CBD: A Patient's Guide to Medicinal Cannabis--Healing without the High - Highly recommended book
  2. CBD Delivery Systems for Pain and Inflammation Treatment (pubmed)
  3. Cannabinoids in the management of difficult to treat pain (pubmed)
  4. Dosing calculator: CannaInsider dosing calculator:
  1. Micro serving is in the range of .5mg to 20 mg CBD per day. Micro servings can be effective for sleep, headache, mood, nausea, PTSD, stress, and metabolic disorders. (Leinow, 59)
  2. Standard- Macro serving is 10 mg to 100 mg CBD. Effective for pain, inflammation, autoimmune, lyme, anxiety, depression, arthritis, mental health, autism, IBS/IBD (Leinow, 60)
  3. Recommendation is to start small and increase as needed. Only known side effect when taking too much is drowsiness.
*Source: CBD: A Patients Guide to Medicinal Cannabis
  1. Drug Interactions:
Studies on CBD drug interactions are still in the infancy stage, however these research articles may be helpful for you. We always recommend that the patient notify all physicians prior to taking CBD. CBD - Medication Interaction - Known negative interactions
  1. Clobazam- In children with CBD for epilepsy, CBD increased Clobazam levels(Geffrey et al 2015)
2.THC and CBD increase warfarin levels(Yamaori et al 2012) 3.CBD can interact with pharmaceuticals by decreasing the effectiveness and inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450 (Leinow, 68)
  1. CBD and Drug Testing- will I fail?
It depends on the testing standards of the drug test. Most companies only search for the cannabinoid THC, which is the main psychoactive component of the marijuana pant. While Medterra products are THC free there are some testing facilities that check for a spectrum of cannabinoids that could trigger a positive drug test. If the drug tests for cannabinoids the lab facility needs to pull a second screen of THC and CBD in order to not fail the drug test. By Law you can ask the facility what cannabinoids they test for. We suggest contacting the testing facility if there is any concern.
