If you, or anyone you know, is interested in trying CBD we always recommend consulting your physician. While no prescription is needed, it’s best to make sure it won’t affect any medications you are taking and potentially work with them through a wean process if applicable.
Don’t be nervous! The good news is more and more physicians are recommending CBD to their patients. But if you still aren’t sure, below is some helpful information to take with you if you feel your doctor might not be so supportive:
- According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
- Studies conducted on CBD and condition that affects you. You can find these on the U.S. Library of Medicine’s website – www.pubmed.gov
- Information from a trusted CBD manufacturer – lab results, product information, etc.
We’d love to hear how your conversation goes with your physician. Please comment below. Let’s give others the encouragement they need to have the much needed conversation!
