My son has Doose Syndrome and has had a steady year. Since we started the CBD treatment he has become another person. He is alert, has good reflexes and responds well to stimuli. He is able to play with his sister and other children in the park, in the pool, etc… Everyday he surprises us by telling us that he is no longer ill, we can see how happy he is… imagine how happy we are!!
After a long time of suffering from neck and back pains, Maurice decided to start a cannabinoid-based therapy. He is being treated with CBD oil to try and relieve his discomfort. Now he continues playing basketball without pain.
Therefore, we have collected a variety of testimonials from some of the patients of Kalapa Clinic who have decided to share their experiences and offer first-hand information on these types of therapies. Their testimonies confirm how a cannabinoid-based therapy can impact and improve quality of life.
CBD in patients with Parkinson’s helps to alleviate one of their main symptoms. CBD relieves the symptoms of Parkinson’s, stopping dyskinesia and allowing control over motor function among other things. In this short video we can see the rapid effect of cannabidiol and its effects in treating Parkinson’s.
Tratamiento: Strong CBD with a minimal dose of THC
Josep María uses CBD oil to treat his irritable colon. This video tells us why he decided to start a cannabinoid therapy and what effects he has experienced in the past few months.
María suffers from psoriasis on her scalp, being an area that is always coming into contact with products such as shampoo and conditioner it constantly itches. With the CBD cream she has started to notice improvements.
Could all this pain-free movement have been a result of the placebo effect? Sure. But I like to think my inflammation was kept in check by my new CBD regimen. Still, I'm no medical expert, so I reached out to Staci Gruber, PhD, an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the director of the Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Core and the Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery program at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts. She told me that anecdotal evidence and pre-clinical trials suggest CBD helps with pain and inflammation, but "we don't have clinical trial data."
Inspired by my reduced chronic pain and stress-free slumber, I also started getting up at 5:50 a.m. for a brisk 2-mile walk with my neighbor every morning. And yeah, I'm still taking barre and yoga classes. I've got energy for everything!
There are numerous CBD oils and balms (and drink mixes and bath salts and dog treats), but I gravitated toward an oil by Beam for a couple of reasons: It's THC-free (I've learned that some companies don't filter out traces of THC—I'm not here to get stoned, people), and it's broad-spectrum, which means beneficial plant compounds, like terpenes and flavonoids, are left in the extract.
I'm not well-schooled in the ways of cannabis—figuring out what CBD is took some time. Until recently I didn't know my hemp from my weed. THC, CBD…IDK. It's like trying to get the square root of a number: If I concentrate for a minute, I can figure it out, but really I just don't care, you know?
Better sleep, energy for workouts, and a compliment from my husband make it all worthwhile.
There are still plenty of studies to be done, but so far science has shown that CBD appears to target more than 65 areas in the brain and body that are involved in regulating pain, mood, and sleep. Notably, CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system, enhancing and balancing the messages sent via endocannabinoids and neurotransmitters. By doing so, it has the potential to lower inflammation, ease pain, bring a sense of calm, help those coping with anxiety, and improve sleep.
Also, I stopped having nightmares. Weirdly, I get them a lot—like, I'm driving down the road and suddenly I'm in the ocean. That kinda thing. But since I started taking CBD oil, the nightmares haven't come. My daily stressors remain the same, but my stress symptoms have lessened, so I'm totally giving CBD oil the credit. I also spoke to David L. Nathan, MD, clinical associate professor of psychiatry at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and founder of Doctors for Cannabis Regulation. He agreed there could be a connection: "All drugs that can help with sleep—and CBD may be one of them—will not affect just the onset and duration of sleep but also the quality of sleep," he explained.
