cbd oil

Every since my pacemaker in Oct 2017 my anxiety has been aweful.  I do see someone for this and the pacemaker is working properly.  Has anyone used CBD or medical marijuana with a pacemaker

Given the nature of faddish elixers in a globalized, online economy I'd dig really deeply iinto any company whose CBD you might decide to try for info about their supply chain and any testing of it that may be done.

I use food-grade peppermint oil for irritable bowel syndrome and have seen a series of formerly reliable suppliers begin cheapeing/adulterating their product.

Anything inexpensive and of growing popularity is subject to the China Syndrome. You don't need more complications from routinely ingesting CBD bulked-up with used transmission fluid and cooking oil.

I hope the two are truly seperate and distinct because I'm interested in CBD for arthritis/sciatica relief.

its truly a market that you need to be careful about

i am listening to people talk about it and all i can say is be careful. edible and oils will be legal here in dec. it is supposed to be good for copd. all i know is that it can be quite potent in an hour or so after using it and a drop can be too much. maybe best to see a dr . who specializes. have heard of people landing in emerg.  we live in interesting times today. jessie

medical vs commercial

AFAIK CBD oil etc are not regulated as pharmaceuticals but as supplements. The supplement world is an unregulated wild west. YMMV. Buyer beware. 

Who knows what's in the jar of snake oil? 



I have tried CBD oil

I had to smile at all the warning posts from people who have not tried CBD oil.

I have tried it--from a source I could trust for purity and potency. It was recommended to me as a sleep aid. I don't have any particular problem with anxiety--not since I got a pacemaker. But that's another story.

I can't say I noticed any sleep improvement, although I know several people who say it's made a big difference for them in reducing anxiety.

I have since learned that dosage is important and possibly I wasn't taking enough.

As for the warnings...when it comes to supplements, any supplements, vitamis, minerals, protien drinks--you name it. It's a case of buyer beware. Even products sold under the brand name of national chain drug stores can be, at best, total money wasters. At worst, dangerous.

I don't buy drug store supplements of any kind. I buy only where I know products have been tested for purity and potency. I pay more, but it's worth it to me to know exactly what I'm getting.

I do smoke sometimes, I found out I can't smoke alot, makes me unfomfortable around chest area, like pressure and I felt once pacemaker actually pacing which was very freaky. But with the right dosage it works very well and I have no problems with it.

It's much better to live with a pacemaker than to risk your life without one.
