In reply to CBD Oil as augmentation to meds or stand-alone?, posted by mtom on February 8, 2019, at 10:20:05

CBD is being used as part of a stack in cocktails of meds and herbs, as well as mono therapy.

If it were me I would have no problem adding to Prozac, Zyprexa, Ritalin, whatever, any of them. I might hesitate slightly with Parnate or Nardil. But even there I think it is safe.

> Some Background:
> Here in Canada Medicinal Cannabis has been legal for a number of years. It must be prescribed by a Doctor and provided by Government regulated Licensed Producers. (Although I have heard of Pot Shops selling it, all cannabis "use" was recently legalized in Canada but licensing shops to sell it without a prescription is still in process). Right now, GPs usually refer "medical" patients to the previously licensed Doctor run Medical Cannabis Clinics for prescriptions. Based on your medical history and health conditions, they prescribe a product and dosage they feel is suitable, and suggest high quality providers from their experience, although you are free to choose any licensed provider who offers a product in line with your prescription. Some of the providers here have been and are involved in ongoing research and published papers. Although there has been quite a bit of in vitro and animal research, clinical human trials are still scanty (there have been some), they are ongoing. Much of the past research has been done or is in process in Canada, Europe and Israel, often in collaborations, where regulations have been more "research friendly". I've been reading about increased research in the U.S., but ongoing frustrations with regulations. Based on a combination of research and apparently abundant anecdotal evidence, medical cannabis is being prescribed in Canada for a variety of conditions including mood, anxiety and sleep disorders, chronic pain and inflammatory conditions, epilepsy and more.
> I understand that in the U.S. most CBD is currently produced from Hemp due to the trace amounts of THC. This is not the case in Canada where regular but specially bred cannabis strains are used for Medical CBD and the THC content of different products varies from very low amounts, to more significant amounts, depending on the patients conditions and as prescribed by the Doctor. And at least some brands include small amounts of the naturally occurring terpenes.
