    THC seems amazing for pain/anxiety

    I’d say that is overstating the evidence quite a bit

    Anecdotally have heard several positive CBD reviews.  I am unfamiliar with any studies on CBD oil specifically

    Not evidence, just anecdotal for my pts in california. Those that used regularly, even say heavily, were notable. Just a drug trade.

    Don’t know if it works.  But I’m not going to poo-poo on it either.  The stuff that’s shilled by the pharmaceutical reps for anxiety/depression/pain control is usually a combination of barely helpful, habit forming, and potentially devastating.  The cat is out of the bag with regard to accessibility so you are never going to get pharmaceutical company buy-in.  Would appreciate some high quality trials but I fear that will be lacking until some entity can patent it.

    Politics pushed it out to the public. It is going to be up to the government to fund the research.

    I actually had a patient using CBD oil fail a drug test.  They were getting tested as part of pain clinic management as on low dose narcotics for chronic pain.  They were negative on testing before starting CBD oil and I believe them that they didn’t knowingly take illicit marijuana.  We are not in a legal state.  A little scary thinking about everyone driving around that could be high on CBD oil.

    I recently read that 1/5 CBD oils have significant levels of THC.  Beware of drug testing.

    It was a little before my time but I caught the reruns (Fox prime time Seinfeld and Simpsons in the late 90s)  and recently rewatched the series.  Dated for sure but still funny.  Not sure if you would enjoy it without the nostalgia.

    2 months ago I started rewatching  The Simpsons (thank you Hulu)  but I rarely get the time to watch more then 1 a week so I am on episode 10 or so.  With 30 seasons I might get to FI first!

    Noticed two buildings/stores today in my town selling nothing but CBD. Why you can’t just pick it up at the local grocery store is beyond me.

    I’ve asked several of my pts recently if they get any sort of buzz or high with CBD oil. They all say no. But they do claim it lowers anxiety.

    In NYS you are not allowed to sell it in pharmacies. I do not know about grocery stores. Most people get it from vape shops and online.
    I wonder if you can bundle it with male enhancement supplements and an ESA letter when you order online?

    I think you’ve got a hell of an idea. I want in. I’ll be a silent partner.

    Who is going to tell you they get a buzz? Again, what is more likely, the stuff is magic or it gets people high?

    I still think the placebo effect is the winner. People always want to find a solution to their problems.
