CBD Oil for Parkinson’s

New breakthroughs by CTFO in the science of CBD oil have resulted in the development of new CBD products that significantly increase its penetration with a resultant beneficial impact on symptoms.  Several short videos have just been posted on the new CTFP website that  explain this new discovery.  https://parkinsonsrecovery.myctfo.com/

What is the difference between CBDa and CBD oil? CBDa is a precursor to all CBD products. It CBD Oilis extracted from the hemp plant, more potent than CBD and more effective.

Why isn’t Everyone Taking CBDa? 
It is actually available only from CTFO. When CBDa is exposed to heat – it de-stabilizes. Researchers recently succeeded in stabilizing CBDa so that it does not lose its potency. CTFO has the patent on this process. Their CBDa products are called “10X Pure”.

If you have discovered CBD offers relief from your symptoms, I recommend that you investigate the new 10X Pure products if you have not already done so.

CBD Research

Clinical research on CBD (cannabidiol) includes studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain. A listing of the studies is posted on the Parkinsons Recovery website below. Quite a few of the listed studies were published as recently as the last calendar year and even in 2019. Clearly, researchers have been finding excellent results in their studies.

If you decide to explore this option there is no risk involved. CTFO gives a full money back refund if taking its CBDa does not offer symptom relief. Simply return the used, empty bottle within 60 days to receive a full refund.

Chronic Pain

  • Do you currently experience periodic or chronic pain?
  • Are you currently taking a medications that have proven to disappoint expectations?
  • Have you set an intention to reduce a dependency on opiates and other pain relievers?

I have exciting news for you. A new CTFO product is available as of this week  which has been formulated to address the struggles  of people who experience chronic pain. If your answer to any one of the three questions above is yes, please take 3  minutes to watch the video posted on the CTFO website.

https://myctfocbd.com/parkinsonsrecovery/

Like most opiates the  newly formulated 10XPure 1000 Gold CBD product CBDA is a COX-2 inhibitor which leads to the relief of pain and swelling. I recently heard a presentation by neurologist Stephen Trobiani who predicts that this new product development may well  offer a welcome solution to anyone who suffers from persistent and chronic pain and is interested in avoiding opiates as a solution.

Of course we have no evidence at this point on whether this new product discovery will offer sustained pain relief, but I believe it is worth taking seriously and investigating further.  The company – CTFO – that developed it is one that I have no hesitation in recommending. They are a first class act.

Now – a big reason I have no hesitation with a recommendation that you consider trying a new product for which we have no solid feedback yet is that CTFO offers a full, 60 day money back guarantee. Return the used, empty bottle within 60 days after purchase and receive a full 100% refund.

If you decide to give this one a try, please let me know the outcome!

CBD Oil for Parkinson’s

A potential therapy for addressing symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease is CBD oil which is now legal in all US states and some countries. CBD stands for “cannabidiol oil”. It is extracted from either the Hemp plant or the Marijuana plant.  Using CBD allows the medical benefits of medical marijuana without the high that is associated with THC. CBD in itself has no psychedelic properties and is considered safe for consumption

Should CBD oil be a therapy worth your consideration?

What do we know about the use of CBD oil as a therapy for addressing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease?

The 2018 Parkinsons Recovery survey reveals that some people experience relief from their Parkinson’s symptoms when taking CBD oil.  It was one of the top therapies reported to be useful. Still, not everyone experiences relief from their symptoms. Why might this be the case?

1. A first possible explanation for why some people do not experience symptom relief is that the concentration of CBD oil they took was insufficient. Research using patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease finds that subjects who took a minimum of 300 mg showed improvement while those who took 75 mg showed no improvement.

A 2014 study on the effects of cannabidiol (CBD) in the treatment of patients with Parkinson’s disease published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology examined results for Twenty one (21) subjects assigned to three groups of seven subjects each. One group was treated with placebo, one group with cannabidiol (CBD) 75 mg/day and one group with CBD 300 mg/day. One week before the trial and in the last week of treatment subjects were evaluated with respect to  motor and general symptoms score (UPDRS) and well-being and quality of life (PDQ-39).

Despite the tiny sample sizes, groups treated with placebo and CBD 300 mg/day had significantly different mean total scores in the PDQ-39 (p = 0.05). Significance is very much a factor of sample size, so this result is striking in itself.

Does this mean you would be best advised to order a 300 mg bottle of CBD oil?  That would not be the best choice. You would be better offer getting a bottle with a higher concentration – as much as 1500 mg. Why?

A bottle with 1500 mg has a total of 1500 mg (and a bottle of 300 mg has a total of 300 mg). You are not taking 1500 mg (or 300 mg) with each serving. How much are you getting when you take the recommended number of drops?

Investigate how many servings are contained in a bottle. If a 1500 mg bottle contains 50 servings, then you would be taking 30 mg with each application.

A serving may be listed as 10 drops (or 6 drops).  Early reports from users have suggested to me that you might be able to take fewer drops than the recommended serving. This should especially be true for the CTFO 10X pure spectrum CBD oil which has just been released. Laboratory testing shows it has ten times the penetration.

In summary – you should be able to pay much less in the long run by getting the higher concentrations of CBD oil.  And keep in mind that if you cannot find a serving that helps – return the empty bottle for a full refund (withing 60 days after purchase).

2. A second possible explanation is that the concentration of CBD in the oil they took was less than the concentration they thought they had purchased. Some CBD oil companies claim they are selling a bottle with a 500 mg concentration of CBD when only 50 mg or less is actually contained in the bottles.  As a new product that shows promise for addressing many conditions , some  companies have seized the opportunity to make a quick profit by selling a product that contains little of what is advertised.

3. A third possible explanation is that CBD will not offer relief from the symptoms of some people. No therapy helps everyone. CBD oil is no exception. Based on informal reports from members of the global Parkinsons Recovery audience I have observed that more people experience relief from their symptoms when taking CBD oil than those who do not.

My conclusion: CBD oil is worth trying out to see if it helps offer relief from symptoms.  Acquiring  CBD oil from a company like CTFO that certifies its contents through laboratory testing and offers a full money back guarantee is a choice worth taking seriously. You can try an entire bottle of CBD oil. If it does not offer relief from your symptoms, CTFO guarantees a full refund of your purchase. You only need to return the empty bottle within 60 days.

Many people inquire what concentration of CBD is best. The higher the concentration, the less needs to be taken for results to be experienced.  Although the higher concentrations cost more, cost savings over the long run should accrue.

Will Taking CBD Oil Reverse Your Parkinson’s Symptoms?

The truthful answer to this question about CBD is we really do not know. There is little research about it as a treatment for symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.  It is a new development on the horizon of natural therapies. 
 
Some people do experience relief from their Parkinson’s symptoms from  taking CBD oil. Will you? Maybe. Maybe not. The only way to know for sure is to try it out and see if it helps. 
 
If you are thinking of trying it I recommend you consider products sponsored by a company (CTFO) that offers a high quality, organic, high concentration (1500 mg) CBD oil at the best prices I have seen anywhere. 
 
 
Aside from these advantages there is one reason why I have no hesitation to endorse their products. You have the opportunity to get a full 100% refund if taking CBD does not help. 
 
So, why not …
  1. Check with your doctor about taking CBD. If they give the OK.
  2. Purchase the 1500 mg bottle of CBD oil (it costs about $100).
  3. Take the entire contents over the course of a month (give or take). 
If taking CBD is helpful – hooray I say. If it does not offer the relief you seek, you can return the empty bottle to CTFO for a full, 100% refund. 
The company offers this generous guarantee because most people find CBD is helpful.  
 
There are many natural therapies that can be tried these days. Most require some degree of a financial cost. Not this one. You can discover if CBD oil offers relief from your symptoms without worrying you may be spending money on something which does not help.

Will CBD Oil Melt Your Symptoms?

CBD Oil for Parkinson’s

Will taking CBD oil offer relief from your symptoms? The truthful answer is that nobody knows that answer (not even you) until you try it. Here is a risk free opportunity to see if taking CBD oil might melt your symptoms.

CBD Oil and Parkinson’s Disease

Last week I hosted a Parkinsons Recovery radio show that highlighted a company (CTFO) that sells a high quality CBD oil at affordable prices. Since the interview I have received many inquiries from listeners asking about whether taking CBD can help their Parkinson’s symptoms. Naturally, each question differs in content, but the nature of the question is the same.

I am asked:

“I have (a list of Parkinson’s symptoms here) – will taking CBD oil help me?”

Because I have received so many questions like this I thought it prudent to post my response here.

Answer to the Question about CBD Oil:

There is no way to know whether taking CBD oil will offer you relief from the symptoms you describe. As a new therapy, there is very little research evidence. And with virtually all
natural therapies, I have concluded that any natural therapy (like taking CBD) will help some people but not necessarily other people who experience Parkinson’s symptoms.

There is little research evidence that uses Parkinson’s patients. Studies have found positive effects for the use of CBD on anxiety, stress and PTSD. You can review abstracts of these studies on www.pubmed.com (the US government’s index of scientific studies).

You can also access videos posted by persons with Parkinson’s symptoms on Youtube. Visit www.youtube.com. Search using the terms “CBD Parkinson’s” or variants thereof. The listing of videos will populate.

I encourage you to review what evidence does exist (however limited). Of course talk with your doctor about taking CBD before making a final decision.

If you decide to try it, I recommend you purchase CBD (preferably the high concentration
1500 mg CBD oil) from CTFO. Why? Because they offer a 60 day guarantee. You only have to
return the used bottle to them to claim a full refund if it does not help address your symptoms.

  • CBD products offered by CTFO have high quality.
  • They offer a high concentration 1500 mg CBD.
  • You cannot beat the risk free opportunity to see if taking CBD will help.

To summarize, no one can say whether taking CBD oils will help you or not. But, you can find out for yourself by trying it out. That is the “gold standard” test which will offer you a reliable answer to the question you have asked me to answer.

Source of High Quality, Affordable CBD Oil

I have been asked repeatedly over the last several years for a recommendation on a reliable, high quality, low cost source of CBD oil. The CBD marketplace has been crazy these last two years. Companies come and go. Some falsify what they have to offer. Some rip you off. I have been genuinely perplexed and confused about what source of CBD oil I could recommend with confidence.

Some companies sell CBD oils that are outrageously expensive with a very low concentrations (as little as 25 mg). Because CBD oils are a new and very popular therapy, most companies are selling CBD oils at outrageous prices. Great when CBD helps suppress symptoms. Not great when they are so expensive.

Thanks to a vigilant member of my listening audience – I have at long last identified a company that I feel comfortable recommending: CTFO. Click the arrow below to hear a replay of my interview with John (who I signed up as an associate with) and Brad (a representative of the company) about CTFO.

Just to be clear – most of my radio show interviews involve generic information about therapies and programs that help people address their symptoms. This interview focuses on information about a specific company that offers CBD oils. Click below to discover the CTFO products. The company sells a high quality, high concentration CBD oil at – most importantly – competitive prices. 

http://www.parkinsonsrecovery.myctfocbd.com

Important Qualification: CTFO only ships to addresses in the United States, Great Britain, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland and Sweden. Shipments to Canada will be available soon.

I signed up for free to be an affiliate of the company because it enabled me to purchase the oils at an even better prices. You of course can do the same.

If you have been interested in CBD but have been hesitant to try it out because of the cost – consider ordering a bottle  from CTFO. They give you – get this – 60 days to try out their CBD oils. You can return the used bottle for a full refund. How cool is that? The risk to try the CTFO product out is minimal. Potential advantage is great.

The company suggests you order the highest concentration CBD oil – 1500 mg – so you get the best opportunity possible to see if it will help you. Of course, you should consult
your doctor before making any decision about how to proceed.

Consulting an Iridologist to Assess Causes of Parkinson’s Symptoms

Hi Robert

It’s me again! I have now seen an Iridologist twice and he has picked up on the spleen, which apparently is implicated in muscle and limb control. My Encyclopedia of Chinese Medicine book says:

“The Spleen, which is related to the stomach, opens into the mouth and controls the muscles and limbs The condition of the spleen is reflected in the lips.”

I just wondered if you or anyone else had any knowledge/experience of this?

I also have to say I found your CBD radio show interview fascinating. I already had some of this from hemp oil, but am keeping it’s use up my sleeve in case all my efforts to find the cause were to fail.

Many thanks for everything you do for us all.

Using CBD for Parkinson’s

My radio show interview with Charlotte, one of the founders of Libre, a company that offers a legal form of CBD made from hemp, has inspired a great deal of interest from listeners in using CBD for  temporary relief from Parkinson’s symptoms.  As a follow-up to the radio show, Sherrie Chastain asked me to post answers to two questions about CBD that she has been frequently asked this past week.

Of course, Sherrie’s suggestions are for informational purposes only. You are  encouraged to consult with your qualified medical professional when it comes to making decisions regarding the use and dosage of any natural supplements such as CBD.

At What Time of the Day Should I Take CBD ?

We recommend CBD be taken first thing in the morning when there is nothing in the stomach, unless there is an acid reflux issue and the amino acids in the hemp seed oil may trigger the acid reflux so use with some food to counteract the stomach acid. Taking CBD on an empty stomach will allow the body to process it faster because it is not metabolizing anything else at that time. It is recommended that one takes 10-15 drops from a 300 MG bottle, which 1 drop is equivalent to 1mg. 

Now, because everyone has a different metabolism, not everyone will get the same results. We recommend waiting 15-30 minutes to see how one feels after taking their drops. The Cancer Institute did a study and concluded that there is no way to take a lethal dose of CBD because it needs to build up in the body to make a reserve that the body can pull from, so it is ok to take more and in some cases more than 10-15 drops will be needed. 

How Often Should CBD be Taken?

This again has to do with metabolism and how much relief you get for how long. If someone takes approximately 12 drops, and they get relief in 30 minutes and it lasts 8 hours, then we know that for that person 12 drops every 8 hours is a perfect dose. 

Since CBD is a cannabinoid and our bodies are cannabinoid deficient, some people will use CBD hoping for a specific result. Then when the CBD goes into the body the endocannabinoid system may actually use it for something that the body feels is more important resulting in the feeling that the CBD is not working, because that particular symptom the user was looking for relief from was not helped. This just means the body needs more cannabinoids because the amount you are consuming is not enough to cover everything needed by the body. The Mayo clinic has a recommendation of 300 mg per day for Parkinson’s sufferers, which in retrospective these sufferers are very extreme cases which is why they are at the Mayo clinic. There are reports of relief from doses of 10 to 15 drops, which provides the data that everyone is different.
