THE MAYO CLINIC WEIGHS IN ON CBD – OFFERS DOSAGE SUGGESTIONS.
Hi Diana, I don’t know where you’ve purchased this item from. I hope you asked for the lab results of what’s in that bottle. Assuming you did, I would start with figuring out the CBD dosage per dose. It’s a 300 mg Tincture bottle, if it’s in a one ounce bottle, then most likely, there are 30 doses per bottle.’check the label. If those assumptions are correct, then one dose is only 10 mg. That’s less than my customers give their pets.
Most adults use 500-1000 mg Tinctures.

If I were you, I’d use our Body Creme 525 CBD:CBG. It’s what I use. It offers quick relief from arthritis pain, and it’s a topical, offering quicker results. I hope this helps! -Joan
Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I
came to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m bookmarking
and will be tweeting this to my followers! Exceptional blog
and outstanding design and style.
I have just received a supply of b+ pure cbd in the mail. This is all new to me. I have arthritis in my joints which includes somewhat crippled arthritic hands. I am searching for relief. The cbd oil comes in 300mg bottles. From what I read above I’m wondering is this is too much of a daily dose for me.
The Mayo Clinic encourages physicians to keep “a clinical curiosity and a healthy skepticism” about CBD. Even though the FDA hasn’t approved any CBD or hemp oil products, besides the purified CBD oil for epilepsy, patients continue to ask for and use CBD products to self-medicate. As the CBD market explodes, more and more people are likely to try it. It’s crucial doctors remain informed and confident in guiding patients to use or not use CBD.
This preliminary research is promising, showing potential anti-inflammatory effects and suggesting CBD may improve sleep and reduce anxiety. The research also suggests the potential to block pain receptors and even change the reactivity of the amygdala, two developments that may have important implications for addicts and people with chronic pain. With a population grappling with the opioid crisis, alternative treatments to break the cycle of addiction are eagerly hoped for.
“Because CBD is not controlled, basically, it’s anybody’s guess what can be in these. And so they can claim that it’s 30% cannabidiol and otherwise pure. But if it’s not independently tested, it may have other pesticides, toxins, heavy metals,” Mauck says.
Snake Oil or Miracle Cure?
Even though CBD is legally and medically murky, consumers can take a few strategies to minimize risk. Scrutinize labels, buy organic, and purchase from a certified medical dispensary or company that has a certificate of analysis. This certificate means an independent lab has studied the product and certified what it does and does not contain. Find out how and where the hemp plant from which the CBD product is derived is grown, Mauck says. Make sure it is grown legally and not from a foreign source.
But again, the flimsy regulations and conflicting laws around CBD can make it hard to ensure that your CBD product is high quality. “It’s hard, because on the Internet, it’s difficult to try to get all this information and figure out all of these things. And the FDA and others can’t close these false claims down fast enough,” Mauck says.
Despite these challenges, Mauck stresses that it’s important for health professionals to be as current on the research and developments as possible. She and her co-authors designed the review to be a clinical tool to help physicians more effectively advise patients on CBD use.
The review also looked at potential negative effects. The review found potential risks of CBD — liver damage, mislabeling, and drug interaction. Anecdotally, patients also report side effects of weight loss, diarrhea, and dizziness from CBD use, Mauck says. But potential side effects depend on how and how much you take in. Inhale CBD, eat it, or spread CBD lotion on your body, and the effects can vary.
