    Correction:

    The people making commercially available CBD are unregulated, and fill their marketing with scam claims, and much of its effectivness seems to be the placebo effect.

    They are some promessing studies, and new medicines which may have some limited use.


    Cannabis derived compounds are not a magic bullet for disease. There's a lot of unverified claims about Commercially available CBD which simply don't stand up to any investigation.

    Point proven, that is a badly disguised marketing website, full of junk articles.

    Every MMA fighter on my facebook is sponsored or uses CBD. I can't stand the taste and never felt anything.

    If your taking drink and drugs and experiencing anxiety, the easy solution is to stop taking the drink and drugs.

    The natural adrenaline, endorphins hit you get from training is way better anyway.

    Don't think of it as giving up getting high, just replacing a negative high with a positive one.

    A side-line we run in my shop is selling vape products, including CBD.
    I think it's quite telling that we are not allowed, by law, to state, imply or otherwise suggest that CBD products have any medical benefits.

    That said, I have a few regular customers who purchase it for pain relief, who swear by it. But, it's anecdotal - could be placebo, could be correct.

    I definitely don't believe that it can cure tumours/cancer etc.

    Some of the articles might be junk, especially ones written by clinic owners and others with commercial interests, but the abstracts linked on that page are legit.

    Which the "articles" distort massively.

    Theirs some promise in cannabis derived chemicals, which is a very different thing from commercially available "CBD".

    It's the difference between the therapeutic use of aspirin to avoid stroke in AF, and chewing random tree bark, which may or may not be willow tree.

    "It's the difference between the therapeutic use of aspirin to avoid stroke in AF, and chewing random tree bark, which may or may not be willow tree."

    Yup, sums it all up perfectly.
