Many doctors agree CBD is an effective alternative to medicine. Doctors are reporting that CBD helps their patients’ anxiety, pain, inflammation, skin problems, sleep issues and more.
Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, one of the world’s leading authorities on fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue says, “While I hesitate to jump into this political quagmire, we have had such incredible feedback from people getting relief from CBD oil that I feel the need to add my opinion. It’s a very helpful tool and you don’t have to get high to experience pain relief.”
Dr. Willian Cole, says that patients using CBD are experiencing amazing clinical results. He recommends CBD to people who suffer from anxiety, autoimmunity, inflammation and pain. Furthermore, he says that CBD has been a true ‘missing link’ in many patients’ health scenarios.
Dr. Carrie Diulus, a board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon, says that her patients report CBD decreases inflammation and anxiety while also helping with sleep.
Dr. Aparna Iyer, says many patients’ report that using CBD has helped them with psychosis, depression, pain, and anxiety.
Dr. Ethan B Russo, board-certified neurologist, psychotherapy researcher, and celebrated cannabinoid researcher, is another doctor that praises the benefits of CBD.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN has been endorsing the health benefits of CBD since 2013. He reported studies have proven CBD relieves pain, normalizes the brain and repairs damage caused by opioids.
Dr. Allan Zubkin, board certified in addiction medicine, treats people whose lives have been totally ruined by drugs and alcohol. Many of his patients suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, sleep disorders and chronic pain. He discovered CBD oil is extremely beneficial for those conditions.
Dr. Zubkin says, “There are many people that have social anxiety disorder. People with social anxiety disorder have extreme fear of getting into social situations.
They have difficulty approaching people. They have difficulty going out shopping or going to malls. Anywhere there are other people they have extreme fear of that situation. Many people learn to medicate to cope with that problem.
Having a natural product that would help them in that situation would really reap benefits for them. CBD plays an important role in treating them. There are neuroprotective effects of CBD so I’m really excited about using it and happy for the opportunity to offer it to my patients.”
Eight Out Of Ten Patients Found CBD To Work
Doctors have reported eight out of ten patients found CBD to work very effectively for many conditions.
The top 4 medical conditions treated by CBD are depression, anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain. Other conditions treated by CBD as reported by doctors are muscle tension, migraines, menstrual cramps, skin concerns, diabetes, PTSD, ADHD and stomach issues.
Patients who use CBD alongside addictive drugs like painkillers reported feeling fewer triggers to take medication unnecessarily.
In January of 2019, Consumer Reports surveyed over 4000 CBD users. Most of the CBD users reported it was effective, especially for anxiety.
Be Careful When Buying CBD Oil
There are thousands of CBD companies in the U.S. and unfortunately some of them are out to make a quick buck.
From deceptive advertising to using synthetic CBD made in a lab, it’s hard to know who to trust.
Consumer Reports exposed retail CBD products that are made with synthetic CBD and other dangerous drugs.
Stay away from CBD companies who make medical claims about their CBD product to treat any medical condition. This is a violation of the FDA’s guidelines.
The FDA does tests on CBD products for sale online and publicly release warning letters to those companies who have failed to meet their claims.
