My mother has ALS and is interested in CBD oil, but we know absolutely nothing about where to go or what kind is best. We would love suggestions from anyone that uses CBD!

Most products that claim CBD only have trace amounts.
The seed from a hemp plant is where the oil comes from.
But in it's raw form, it is more like vegetable oil with a trace amount of CBD.
It has to be refined or concentrated to get the appropriate amount of CBD.
That is what I have learned.
I have used Lazarus and have been very pleased.
It helps me with spasticity. It has a relaxing effect on me and my muscles.
Not as helpful as Tizanadine, but does not make me drowsy.

I've tried several brands and always come back to Charlotte's Web. It's been independently tested and featured on 60 minutes and other programs and radio shows. It cured a little girl (Charlotte) who was having hundreds of seizures a day and gained national attention.

I know lots of PALS taking this and others.

It isn't cheap but, if I skip a few days, I notice it.

In what way do you notice it, Kim, if you don't mind me asking? S x

Just a caution that even topical CBD products are subject to the same drug interactions as grapefruit. It's a good idea to run a search on drugs.com on your entire list, including supplements, when contemplating adding something new.

Relaxes my muscles, helps me sleep, anti-anxiety, and fewer cramps with the Charlotte's web.

I was able to get of Xanax after taking CBD for several months.

Always check with your doctor when adding a new supplement, including CBD.

I take my full dose at night now.

Thank you for all the tips and advice! We ended up ordering from Lazarus. Hard to beat that discount!
