CBD oil - experience

Postby Sparklyrebecca » Tue Dec 04, 2018 12:04 pm

Hi all

My dad has just been diagnosed. I read and heard good things about the CBD oil. I spoke to Nikki, one of the nurse specialist and she recommended posting on here to ask about patients experience with it and where they sourced it from. Can anyone advise? any help will be greatly received. Many thanks

HI Sparklyrebecca,

I am sorry to hear that you are hear due to Dad's diagnosis, and I am sure this must be an overwhelming time for you all. From a perspective of CBD oil (this does not contain the THC component you would find in Cannabis) this is available in local high street stores, ie Holland & Barrett and possibly other health food chains. You are also able to purchase this from online providers, such as Amazon and others, however we suggest if buying this from an online store, do ensure that this is from a reputable supplier.

I am aware that some people may be reluctant to share experiences due to the nature of this being a 'cannabinoid' and some of the recent media and legalisation issues with this. Hopefully people will not be put off by sharing some of their experiences with you, and of course please do feel free to have another chat with us if you wish Sparklyrebecca.

Kind regards,

Dianne
