There is so much information to process about this subject!! Not really expecting any results but I'll give it a try. My bottles have CBD in big lettering on the label though. When I contacted my local dispensary, I was told that the only CBD OIL they sold contained THC. I'm going to stop by and talk to someone in person because maybe I was given misinformation over the phone. Thanks for all the information and suggestions, fellow posters!!!!😀

I have never used cbd oil alone. I have used cbd/thc gummies. They work for me. I don't feel anything other than being relaxed.

@Nightowlz, do they help you sleep? Just feeling relaxed sounds great! I may give the gummies a try! It really sounds like I need to visit our local dispensary and talk to the folks there!

I am in Canada where MJ was legalized recently and is sold by our liquor store system (Provincially regulated) amd other licensed sellers.

 

Our Lab is almost 13 years old and has been an active dog all her life.  Recently she developed a limp and I was very concerned about her.  We bought CBD oil without THC and started her on a small daily dose.  There is not much information on dosage so, after researching, we started with a small dose.  The limp is gone.  She no longer minds a few steps to enter the house.

 

There are no noticeable side effects.  One potential side effect was that the dog would sleep more.  At the age of 13, she sleeps a fair amount anyway and we see no change in that.  I am so pleased that her pain seems to have gone.  She gets walked twice a day and she still loves it.  LM

Yes they help me but I have not been sleeping good lately from taking too much thyroid medication. I tried to tell my doctor it would be too much? 

I like the gummies I got from a friend. Her DH's brother started making them. They are so much better than the ones from the dispensary. I don't think they all have in them what it states on the label?

I did find a few I like that I buy. I had to try them to find ones that worked for me. One of them tastes terrible but I feel better after eating it.

One place gave me a free sucker & another gave me a cookie.

@Nightowlz, my husband had Hyperthyroidism many years ago and it took a while to get the correct medication dosage. The doctor had to keep making adjustments until he hit on the right dosage for the hubby. The doctor told us that thyroid medications are very hard to adjust for most patients. Hopefully your doctor will hit on your correct dosage very soon and you'll be able to sleep normally again!!

I have been hypothyroid at least 35 yrs. I know what my correct dosage is. I just thought I would take less to see how my labs turned out. So I would know where I am. Doctor added 2 more pills per week which I already knew that would be too much. That doctor left town so I dropped one of those. Will get results from new doctor as soon as his office calls with results. It should be spot on. I did read on the manufacturers site they changed their supplier so we will see.

Check Weedmaps online to see if dispensaries in your area are listed there. You can see products they carry. Some also list deals so click on that. The ones here have different deals. Most have a senior discount, some have % off certain products certain days etc. I pick up gummies on Tues when they are 20% off plus senior discount.
