Thanks Girlie, that is helpful :) I am looking for pure CBD. I react very badly to THC (mentally). For anybody who has seen my last post you can see that I even had a bad reaction to a low dose of curcumin. I might try giving them a call.
I have always been sensitive to ALOT of things... Problem is that I am also dealing with post-withdrawal syndrome from an antipsychotic. I am even more sensitive now :( It is also hard to distinguish between problems due to the lyme and problems due to antipsychotic and antidepressant usage. The antipsychotic that I was taking landed me in the hospital, also since I was not technically "psychotic" prior to going on the medication, there was no reason for me to be on it in the first place (Dr.'s words). My family may be looking into a medical malpractice lawsuit because of this. Anway, totally off topic, sorry about that!
Either way I will speak with a psychiatrist about these issues and I will research extensively! The Green Cross sounds like a good option so far though!
I think it costs $20 to ship the CBD oil. So, if you end up liking it, order a few syringes at a time to reduce your overall shipping costs.
Do you mind me asking what your post-withdrawal symptoms were?
I'm so sorry that happened to you.
It happened to my elderly father. He was fine (was on an antidepressant since my mother died) and then fell and broke the socket of his hip. Had 'robotic' surgery in victoria...was doing well...but we didn't know they were giving him sleeping pills every night for 6 weeks.
After discharge....he had sudden onset of anxiety...his GP prescribed sleeping pills and ativan.
He was never the same. Ended up in ER and then the Psych ward. and...anti-psychotic medication. He was suicidal for awhile on it...then they kept changing it...he was on seroquel, olanzapine (which sent his blood sugar level into double digits), haloperidol, and at least one more.
He had sudden dementia - according to them...not one would believe me that it was the psych meds.
there's a lot more to this story...but we never got him back. He was in his mid-70's at the time...
I hope you have an understanding Psychiatrist...
