Elaina - I did the math from the numbers you gave and it sounds like you are on just over 8mg of CBD per day. I think I did that right. I did 250mg/60 servings = 4.17mg per serving (which you said is 15 drops) and then twice a day. I believe that's on the lower end of the dosage spectrum, but that's great that it's working!
Sknight - I looked at the Bulletproof version but I decided to go with the straight CBD oil (I actually went with the silver version which is a little more concentrated - and cheaper). I chose the standard oil just in case I didn't like one of the herbs or had a reaction to one of them and then I would be left with a useless, expensive bottle on my hands. I suppose I could always add in those herbs if I wanted to, but I'm not sure if I will or not.
Quilty - I'm sorry that they don't ship to Canada, I hope you can find somebody to ship some to you! Nobody should be denied medicine. Especially such powerful medicine that is so safe!
Dancingbear - interesting theory but I'm not fully convinced. THC has been known to exacerbate psychotic symptoms. Maybe it could be a little bit of both though. When I smoked cannabis I could only take the tinniest hit before negative symptoms set in so I doubt that I was getting enough of the medicine into my body to have very many beneficial effects. If I was in fact herxing from it that explains why I have had lyme for probably 7 years and am doing relatively well compared to how I could be doing.
Simela - it is actually standardized to have a certain amount of CBD (in milligrams) per bottle. It doesn't matter whether the CBD came from the cannabis sativa plant (marijuana), or industrial hemp. It's the exact same compound and will do the exact same thing. The only difference is that cannabis oil will include THC, which has many beneficial properties as well. However, many people don't tolerate THC well (and it seems that includes those who have psychotomimetic symptoms like many lyme patients). I'm glad that cannabis oil with THC is helping lymies though, that's fantastic! I know that I've tried THC/CBD capsules mixed and while they helped somewhat, the THC could be very overwhelming. That's interesting about
the coconut oil helping with herxing. I put coconut oil in my coffee in the morning and cook with it so I will definitely continue to do that!
Traveler - Cibdex is also featured on the hempmedspx site that my LLMD recommend, if that means anything. I didn't look into that company that much though.
Simela (again) - there will be no difference between a high-CBD and low-THC oil extract from cannabis sativa and CBD extracted from the hemp plant as far as the CBD is concerned. The THC was probably helping their daughter but the hemp-CBD oil would probably be almost as good. CBD has excellent anti-seizure properties. The CBD-hemp extract does have some THC and some of the other cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa. I bet if you can handle the THC that it would be better to have that in there, but from what I've read it seems like CBD is really doing a lot in those cannabis oil mixtures.
I forgot to mention, my LLMD wants me on 50mg of CBD oil per day for three weeks, and then 2-3 days a week after that (this is only because of the expense, not because he wants patients to take less CBD oil). This seems on the high end. I bought enough to take it everyday after three weeks and will probably do so but maybe around 25mg per day depending on how I'm feeling. I might work up to 50mg as well, perhaps start at 25mg.
