I'm looking for a good source of the CBD oil (from hemp, so almost nil THC) for someone in the U.S.

I have a great source here in Canada...but I don't think they will ship to the U.S.


And, preferably one that comes in a paste form.

My brain started working again...and I'm quite sure this source is what our Canadian supplier recommended:

The resource you mentioned, Girlie, is the one my LLPA (from Dr. J's clinic) recommends.

okay, thanks for confirming its a good one.

Hey Dude! How come I'm surprised to hear you're treating at the Dr. J clinic?

How could I forget? or did you not mention?

Sorry, I should have clarified. While my LLPA does work at Dr. J's clinic some of the time, the other part of the time she runs her own practice. So, when I was seeing her, I saw her privately. I've never been to Dr. J's clinic, although I'd like to meet him. My LLPA can't say enough good things about him.

It's been since September 2013, since my most recent health issues started. A little more than a year later, in December 2014, I found the tick buried in my thigh. I sent the tick to LabCorp and it tested positive for Bb. Between what started in late 2013 (likely pneumonia or ?) and the tick bite, I've had five rounds of antibiotics.

September 2013:
First Cefdinir then Azithromycin, for the cold/flu/pneumonia/whatever I had for seven weeks. The fatigue and Tinnitus has never left.

End of December 2014 / Start of January 2015:
After the tick bite, 10 days of Doxycycline, a two-week break, then 15 more days of Doxycycline.

November 2015:
Another 10 days of Doxycycline, due to high Mycoplasma Pneumoniae IgM.

So, it's been 28 months, since I've had any antibiotics.

In that time, I went through several months of Dr. Rawls' "Restore Program," seen a host of "regular" Doctors and Specialists (Cardiology, Rheumatologist, Neurologist, etc.), and many Integrative/Functional Medicine folks - including my LLPA.

Despite all that, I've really not done much, except for taking lots of supplements. And, now, I've even cut way back on those. Now, I take just a few.

Of course, I'm not back to "normal" - if I was ever normal to begin with. My sleep really sucks, at the moment. Of course, I quit my job in January and am just coasting on savings. I've declined the pharmaceutical interventions my LLPA has suggested, except for LDN.

Gee, I wonder why I'm not bouncing-back?!? turn I've been in touch with the Hansa Center, but I'm still hesitating with that idea, for some reason I can't explain.

On the positive side, I don't really have the muscle and joint aches and pains that migrated around my body and bothered me for a couple of years. Other symptoms have either improved or disappeared. But, I definitely still struggle. Fatigue is usually the worst symptom. Stubbornness is the second. smile

Anyway, since I don't usually chime-in on my current state, I thought I'd mention it.

Hi Girlie, the CbD oil they sell at my local health food store in Massachusetts is CV Sciences, Corp they are out of Las Vegas, Nevada.

I haven't used it so I cant say how good it is.

I ordered from Bluebird Botanicals. How do you guys take this disgusting stuff? It does not mix with anything due to oil content. I put a couple of drops under my tongue and swallowed but the taste lingered for quite some time.

The CBD oil I got was a thick paste and it’s supposed to be put under your tongue but it was a bitter taste and also was harsh on my throat.

Girlie,

Hello my friend!

I have become a tester of CBD oils on a quest to rid myself of my fibromyalgia type (constant) neck pain.

I have tried Charlotte's Web, three different salves from dispensaries in Colorado but none helped. Then I found a salve in Woodstock, NY and loved it. When I ran out I ordered it online and then found out it was made by a guy with Lyme! So I love it even more. It's called Humbled Extracts and you can order from their website. I have tried all their salves and my favorite is the cayenne. My second favorite is Flower Child but I like HE more.

Here in California you can get CBD oil most anywhere. Health food stores, smoke shops, gas stations, and even Walmarts.

Dr J in DC recommends CW Hemp and Bluebird Botanicals. CW Hemp is way better tasting as we have tried both.
Parent of teen DS w/ CDC+ Lyme test Nov 2015, late stage Lyme + mycoplasma, bartonella, babesia. Currently treating with antibiotics/anti-malerials, multivitamin, magnesium, Charlotte's Web Advanced CBD oil.

Girlie- When you say your brain started working again, do you mean brain fog cleared up? If so which of the CW oil did you use? I see there are 3 different strengths. thanks

Anyone else have brain fog clear up with cbd oil? brain fog, depersonalization etc is about 90% of my symptoms. If I could somehow resolve that I fee like I could live my life again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

cbdoilreview.org seems trustworthy and has reviews, information about testing regarding various cbd products/manufacturers. You can order some directly from them or follow the links to manufacturers' sites. Tried a few different ones and am now taking Elixinol oil which is really very mild tasting. It helps me with sleep, perhaps a bit with pain. I also add it to topical creams.

LOL - I meant when I posted...my brain started working and I could remember the source of the CBD oil in the U.S.


No, I didn't use the CW Hemp oil - I'm in Canada and we have our own organic source here.

I would call or email the company and tell them what it's for and they should be able to suggest the best one for you.

My son with Lyme has been asking about trying this for his Bartonella symptoms. Does anyone know if CBD oil interacts with any medications?
A few websites that I looked at would not list what it actually does/treats, said they cannot make any health claims...
A friend of his uses a brand called Charlottes Web and apparently it helps with sleep, focus, and anxiety.

sunny - the Link I pasted in a previous post is for Charlotte's Web CBC oil.

I can't comment on what it may interact with re: medications.

There seems to be some information in the first few search results:
