    My mother is undergoing testing to confirm a diagnosis of overactive thyroid. She has been put on beta blockers in the meantime but hasn't found the right dose yet. She has been having trouble sleeping and wanted to use her cbd oil so I said I'd look into it and I've discovered that there could be a few interactions between them, inhibiting enzyme production in the liver that breaks down medication into useful compounds and some other effects. Does anyone here take beta blockers and use cbd?

    I take metaprolol, carvadilol, and haven't had issues. My resting bpm is 48 which is on the low side but when I first medicate my heart rate increases then after awhile I level out and stay low. Same with BP. Since medicating with

    If it was me I would discuss potential interactions with the prescribing physician. If you’re in a quasi legally location.

    She has a appointment today with the specialist that prescribed the meds and she is going to discuss it with him. I'm in Canada so it's all legal but some stigma especially with doctors still exists. Just wanted to see if anyone has had any experience

    Talk to a pharmacist, they know a lot more about drug interactions than MDs. My wife is an RN and WA state registered medical marijuana consultant and she takes a beta blocker and uses CBD for chronic pain. They do interact so you need to space them out by several hours, if she forgets to take the CBD earlier in the day she has to skip it completely. Note this applies to oral ingestion, vaping follows a different path in the body and doesn't cause an interaction issue. She forgot today, realized it about 2 minutes ago and is irritated :)

    Very few medical people including my pharmacist know very little to nada on MMJ interactions. At least down here in Az. Whenever I bring up MMJ with my medical caregivers I am met with a overwhelming attitude and then I get the stink eye from them :rofl: If you try talking to the pharmacist they look at you like your a criminal :razz: . None have been positive with the one exception. She's now my go to doctor and I couldn't be happier. :blush:

    Well, Every CBD product I've tried...Tincture, Gummies, Cart Vapes has done Nothing that I could recognize. After watching a video with 420Vapezones Troy and a couple other Cannabists using CBD FLOWER....And touting their positive experiences, I decided to give it a whirl...I ordered an 1/8 of Amnesia Haze(22.5% CBD-<0.3% THC)from BlackTie CBD, one of Troy's picks.
    Sounds interesting...should be here by Friday...looking forward to giving it a try. I will try and give a brief review after.

    I have a couple of uses for cbd I like it for when my back is out I'll take a bigger dose than the equivalent amount of thc I'd use to get high, say 2-3 times plus a nice size dab of concentrate, together they really loosen me up better than either separately my Ditanium should come in real handy for stacked dabs next time my back is out. I also like it if I vaped something that doesn't really agree with me (usually a new sativa) I find it smooths out any sharp edges that the high may have. Lastly I like it when I have a bad cold, getting high can just make me feel worse but vaping cbd takes the edge off and makes me not miss thc as much. All in all I'm a casual cbd user but I do keep at least 5 grams on hand, it's no miracle drug but I find that it works in conjunction with the natural healing process of the body, maybe even accentuating them.

    I grew 1 cbd plant this year for my mom but I think I'll charge her a trimming and grow tax and take a ounce for myself. Next year I'm growing one 50/50 thc/cbd I got a free seed with my last order I'm hoping it makes a nice aces and pains strain. As for spending money on bud what I need, want, desire, require most is thc so I tend not to spend my meagre bankroll on cbd, however now that soon I will have a ample supply of thc bud I think I'll buy some cbd too and either supplement my thc use or just additionally vape a few bowls a day and see what the results are like. I did just place a order but it was for some more MK Ultra, such a nice strain with a interesting flavour :yum: for me the cbd experiment will have to wait until next month

    I have plenty of THC bud(got 19 oz.. last grow, Cherry Pie, Tangcicle)...never had a direct CBD strain before...the conversation Troy had was quite interesting...enough that I dropped $29 of SS money on it, lol.....we'll see about the laughter if my wife gets the mail 1st...gulp, l !
    If it provides the feelings they were describing, may change to include in the next grow...I'm limited to 4-5 Max...Picky !

    if the stuff ends up floating your boat you could always grow it yourself, you do have the skills to pay the bills. This year I grew Dinafem seeds Dinamed cbd plus it's supposed to come in 15-20% cbd .5-1% thc, which is at least as strong as the catatonic I can get from my LP. If it comes out any good I'll post about it, maybe in the show me your bud thread.

    Just finished growing 3 Pyramid Seeds Northern Lights CBD autos which are advertised as 1:1 CBD:THC. 2 of the 3 were heavy producers and will yield ~ 1oz each. I am totally blown away by this strain, nice overall body well-feeling CBD effect with a greater THC effect than any other CBD blend I have tried. I also have a Philosopher Seeds Fruity Jack in late veg that is advertised a 1:2 CBD:THC and should have even more of a kick. The CBD takes the nasty edge off the THC and the hits are super clean and pleasant, especially if you have fresh material. I am starting to think that vaping fresh flower makes all the difference with CBD, much more so than THC. I would recommend consuming CBD flower 1-4 months after harvest while it still retains is freshness and flavors, not an easy feat if you depend on dispensaries and can't grow your own.
