CBD Oil and benefits for people with CP

I have been listening to a really interesting phone in programme about CBD oil and its many health benefits. Has anybody had any experience of using this?

    Hi there, I have the same thought. Someone I know recommended it to me but I wasn't sure whether it is worth trying. Would be very interesting to find a study on it!

    Yes, I purchased a bottle of CBD oil. Have to say it tasted foul and made me feel quite sick. CBD is great in its natural form, but way too weak to make any difference in the legal form it is being sold in at present. Also lack of TCH is highly noticeable which works on pain from inflammation. I wouldn't buy anymore CBD in this form to be honest, but what works for some, may not work for others, while at the same time this stuff is quite expensive and feel I wish I hadn't wasted my money on it. There is a really good facebook page called the united patients alliance, who offer reviews and advice on purchasing CBD oil. (hope im allowed to mention that, new here, I understand if this gets taken down, but please don't ban me).
