In this highly technological age, many things can be done online and including buying cannabis products. With the rise of delivery and online marketplaces, you definitely have a lot of more convenient options to get your hands on your favorite plant. For first time users of cannabis products, it is advisable for you to know the common marijuana terms in dispensaries and online shopping.  But before you hit that “Place Order” button, keep in mind the legality of the cannabis in your state. Currently, there are still some places in the US where both the medical and recreational marijuana is prohibited.

Helpful tips for buying cannabis products online

Determine the Best Cannabis Product

Before you go and buy cannabis products for medical or even recreational purposes, you want to make sure that you know the right product that can give you your desired effects. You can do this by simply listing down the types of results you want and those that you do not want. This will help you eliminate the kinds of products that you might not like and those that are perfect for your needs and preferences.

For example, you are looking for a potent product that can give you an energetic and more focused experience. You can check out items that have high CBD content. However, if you are into a more euphoric and laidback experience, then those with high levels of THC is perfect for you.

If you are not sure what type of item will give you the effect you are looking for, then you can always send an inquiry to the online shop. Receiving a response from them is a plus as it shows that they attend to their potential customers’ questions.

Consider CBD Oil for Versatility

One of the hottest cannabis products today is CBD oil as many of the medicinal and beneficial effects of the plant is attributed to this cannabidiol. CBD is the chemical compound in the cannabis plant that is known for its medical properties.

This product is perfect for those looking to get the full benefits of the CBD while ensuring that the item can be used for many purposes. You can use it for cooking, mix it with beverages such as coffee and mocktails, and incorporate it in your cookie or brownie recipes. You can even make a cup of tea infused with CBD and topped with your other favorite herbs.

Make Sure that the Company is Legit

Lastly, you want to make sure that you get your supply from legitimate cannabis retailers. By doing so, you can rest assured that the products you will get is safe and regulation compliant. Before buying, make sure to do your research about the company. Find whatever you can find out the seller including company details, articles in which it is featured and other similar information. Moreover, stick to ones with positive reviews, as this means that other customers have tried their products and they vouched for the items.

Look for a Platform that Offers Convenience

Now, you may have found a legit company with legit products. Another thing you need to consider is the convenience of the transaction. Does the platform allow online payments? How about refunds and returns? This way, you can confidently pay for the item and be protected if you are not satisfied with the product.

You also need to consider delivery logistics. Will the company deliver the product right at your doorstep? Will the item be shipped in a discreet and protected packaging? This is important to ensure that you will receive your order in pristine condition without worries about prying eyes snooping on your package.

Now that you know the most important things about buying cannabis products online, you can definitely include these items in your online shopping list. This way, you just have to sit back and relax in the comfort of your home and wait for your cannabis item to arrive.

Cannabis oil on pacifier cures babies brain tumor.

Medical marijuana is gaining acceptance, but could it even help kids? Dr. William Courtney has seen it happen, and on Friday, told HuffPost Live host Alyona Minkovski about it. Saying he was “quite a skeptic 5 or 6 years ago”, Dr. Courtney continued that “my youngest patient is 8 months old, and had a very massive centrally located inoperable brain tumor.” The child’s father pushed for non-traditional treatment utilizing cannabis.

“They were putting cannabinoid oil on the baby’s pacifier twice a day, increasing the dose… And within two months there was a dramatic reduction, enough that the pediatric oncologist allowed them to go ahead with not pursuing traditional therapy.”The tumor was remarkably reduced after eight months of treatment. Dr. Courtney pointed out that the success of the cannabis approach means that “this child, because of that, is not going to have the long-term side effects that would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation… currently the child’s being called a miracle baby, and I would have to agree that this is the perfect response that we should be insisting is front line therapy for all children before they launch off on all medications that have horrific long term side effects.”

DALLAS, Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Puration, Inc. (USOTC: PURA) (“PURA”) today announced the results of a CBD infused beverage market survey conducted by Goldman Small Cap Research.  The survey is part of a pre-marketing campaign of PURA’s new CBD Infused beer, coffee and tea beverages.  The data collected will be used to target PURA’s marketing direction for CBD infused beer, coffee and tea.  The survey results show that tea is the consumers first choice beverage and that the primary reason for consumers to take CBD is to treat anxiety.  The second reason for trying CBD was to treat inflammation.

Of those participants that expressed an interest or desire to try for the first time or as an occasional user of CBD-infused beverages, our results showed that 47% preferred tea.”

“Despite age and geographic diversity, the majority of users said they use CBD products to relieve anxiety and/or inflammation.”

Goldman Small Cap Research Confirms Speculative Buy and $0.25 PPS Target

PURA is already a leading CBD infused beverage company having produced over $1 million in CBD Beverages in the United States last year (2018) and reporting over $1 million in CBD Beverages for just the first six months of 2019.   PURA has targeted $4 million in sales for 2019.

“PURA Is the Best Positioned CBD-infused Provider. With a popular CBD-infused energy water selling millions worth of beverages this year, to the expansion into anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory characteristics of what looks to be a wildly popular CBD-infused tea, PURA has the key bases covered. Clearly, the stock doesn’t reflect the inherent prospects that lie herein. Our target remains $0.25.”

PURA recently implemented program to introduce CBD infused versions of existing third-party beverages.  The company has announced plans to introduce a CBD infused beer in partnership with an existing beer producer and in similar fashion, PURA has partnered with an existing coffee producer and tea producer to introduce CBD infused coffee and tea.  The company recently published a presentation on its beer, coffee and tea initiative that is included in its entirety on the company’s website.  Management plans to update the company’s beer, coffee and tea strategy in conjunction with the survey results announced today.

Jay Jenkins says he hesitated when a buddy suggested they vape CBD.

“It’ll relax you,” the friend assured.

The vapor that Jenkins inhaled didn’t relax him. After two puffs, he ended up in a coma.

That’s because what he was vaping didn’t have any CBD, the suddenly popular compound extracted from the cannabis plant that marketers say can treat a range of ailments without getting users high. Instead, the oil was spiked with a powerful street drug.

Some operators are cashing in on the CBD craze by substituting cheap and illegal synthetic marijuana for natural CBD in vapes and edibles such as gummy bears, an Associated Press investigation has found.

The practice has sent dozens of people like Jenkins to emergency rooms over the last two years. Yet people behind spiked products have operated with impunity, in part because the business has boomed so fast that regulators haven’t caught up while drug enforcement agents have higher priorities.

AP commissioned laboratory testing of the vape oil Jenkins used plus 29 other vape products sold as CBD around the country, with a focus on brands that authorities or users flagged as suspect. Ten of the 30 contained types of synthetic marijuana — drugs commonly known as K2 or spice that have no known medical benefits — while others had no CBD at all.

Among them was Green Machine, a pod compatible with Juul electronic cigarettes that reporters bought in California, Florida and Maryland. Four of those seven pods contained illegal synthetic marijuana, but which chemical varied by flavor and even location of purchase.

“It’s Russian roulette,” said James Neal-Kababick, director of Flora Research Laboratories, which tested the products.

Vaping, in general, has come under increased scrutiny in recent weeks because hundreds of users have developed mysterious lung illnesses and several have died. The AP’s investigation focused on yet another set of cases, in which psychoactive chemicals are added to products presented as CBD.

The results of AP’s lab testing echo what authorities have found, according to a survey of law enforcement agencies in all 50 states.

At least 128 samples out of more than 350 tested by government labs in nine states, nearly all in the South, had synthetic marijuana in products marketed as CBD.

Gummy bears and other edibles accounted for 36 of the hits, while nearly all others were vape products. Mississippi authorities also found fentanyl, the powerful opioid involved in about 30,000 overdose deaths last year.

Reporters then bought brands that law enforcement testing or online discussions identified as spiked. Because testing by both authorities and AP focused on suspect products, the results are not representative of the overall market, which includes hundreds of products.

“People have started to see the market grow and there are some fly-by-night companies trying to make a quick buck,” said Marielle Weintraub, president of the US Hemp Authority, an industry group that certifies CBD cosmetics and dietary supplements.

Synthetic marijuana is a concern, according to Weintraub, but she said the industry has many reputable companies. When products turn up spiked, the people or companies behind them often blame counterfeiting or contamination in the supply and distribution chain.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of many chemicals found in cannabis, a plant known more commonly as marijuana. Most CBD is made from hemp, a cannabis variety cultivated for fiber or other uses. Unlike its more famous cousin THC, cannabidiol doesn’t get users high. Sales of CBD have been driven in part by unproven claims that it can reduce pain, calm anxiety, increase focus and even prevent disease.

The US Food and Drug Administration has approved one CBD-based medicine for treating seizures associated with two rare and severe forms of epilepsy but says it cannot be added to food, drinks or dietary supplements. The agency is now clarifying its regulations, but aside from warning manufacturers against making unproven health claims, it has done little to stop the sale of spiked products. That’s the job of the US Drug Enforcement Administration, but its agents are focused on opioids and other narcotics.

Now there are CBD candies and beverages, lotions and creams and even treats for pets. Suburban yoga studios, big-name pharmacies and Neiman Marcus department stores carry beauty products. Kim Kardashian West had a CBD-themed baby shower.

But it’s hard for consumers to know how much CBD they are really getting if any at all. As with many products, federal and state regulators rarely test what’s inside — for the most part, quality control is left to manufacturers.

And there’s a financial incentive to cut corners. One website advertises synthetic marijuana for as little as $25 per pound — the same amount of natural CBD costs hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

‘You only live once’

[embedded content]

Jay Jenkins had just wrapped up his freshman year at The Citadel, a South Carolina military college when boredom led him to try what he thought was CBD.

It was May 2018 and he said his friend bought a cartridge of blueberry flavored CBD vape oil called Yolo! — the acronym for “you only live once” — from the 7 to 11 Market, an austere, white board-and-batten building in Lexington, South Carolina.

Back in the car, Jenkins tried it first. Things “got hazy,” then terrifying.

Jenkins said the nerves in his mouth felt like they were “multiplied by 10.” Vivid images including a circle engulfed by darkness and filled with colorful triangles filled his mind. Before he drifted out of consciousness, he realized he couldn’t move.

“I thought that I actually was already dead,” Jenkins said.

His friend raced to the hospital where Jenkins suffered acute respiratory failure and drifted into a coma, his medical records show.

Jenkins came out of the coma and was released the next day. Hospital staff sealed the Yolo cartridge in a biohazard bag and handed it back.

Lab testing AP commissioned this summer found a type of synthetic marijuana that has been blamed for at least 11 deaths in Europe.

State and federal authorities never identified who made Yolo, which sickened not just Jenkins but also at least 33 people in Utah.

According to documents filed in a California court by a former company bookkeeper, a business called Mathco Health Corporation sold Yolo products to a distributor with the same address as the 7 to 11 Market where Jenkins stopped. Two other former employees told AP that Yolo was a Mathco product.

Mathco CEO Katarina Maloney said in an interview at company headquarters in Carlsbad, California, that Yolo was handled by her former business partner and she did not want to discuss it.

Maloney also said Mathco does not “engage in the manufacture, distribution or sale of any illegal products.” She said the Yolo products in Utah “were not purchased from us” and the company can’t control what happens to products once they are shipped. AP-commissioned testing of two CBD vape cartridges marketed under Maloney’s Hemp Hookahzz brand found no synthetic marijuana.

As part of an employment complaint filed in court records, the former bookkeeper said Maloney’s former business partner, Janell Thompson, was the “exclusive salesperson” of Yolo. Reached by phone and asked about Yolo, Thompson hung up.

“If you want to speak with somebody you can talk to my attorney,” Thompson later texted without providing a name or contact information.

When a reporter visited the 7 to 11 Market in May, Yolo was no longer for sale. Asked for something similar, the clerk suggested a cartridge labeled Funky Monkey and then turned to a cabinet behind the counter and offered two unlabeled vials

“These are better. These are the owner’s. This is our top seller,” she said, referring to them as 7 to 11 CBD. “These here, you can only get here.”

Testing showed that all three contained synthetic marijuana. The store owner did not respond to messages seeking comment.

What’s in ‘jungle juice’?

The people behind spiked vapes leave few clues about who makes them or what’s inside.

Packaging doesn’t identify the companies and their brands have little online presence. Newcomers can simply design a label and outsource production to a wholesaler that deals in bulk.

The opaque system of manufacturing and distribution hampers criminal investigations and leaves victims of spiked products with little recourse.

The AP bought and tested Green Machine pods in flavors including mint, mango, blueberry and jungle juice. Four of the seven pods were spiked and only two had CBD higher than a trace level.

Mint and mango pods bought in downtown Los Angeles contained one type of synthetic marijuana. But while mint and mango pods sold by a vape shop in Maryland were not spiked, a “jungle juice” flavored pod was. It had yet a different synthetic marijuana compound — one health authorities blame for poisoning people in the US and New Zealand. A blueberry flavored pod sold in Florida also was spiked.

Green Machine’s packaging says it’s made with industrial hemp, but there’s no information about who is behind it.

When a reporter returned to CBD Supply MD in a Baltimore suburb to discuss testing results, co-owner Keith Manley said he was aware of online chatter that Green Machine might be spiked. He then had an employee pull all remaining Green Machine pods from store shelves.

Through interviews and documents, AP tracked Green Machine pods that reporters bought to a warehouse in Philadelphia and then a Manhattan smoke shop and the entrepreneur behind the counter, Rajinder Singh, who said he is Green Machine’s first distributor.

Singh, who is currently on probation for a federal synthetic marijuana conviction, said he purchased Green Machine pods with cash or in exchange for merchandise such as hookah pipes from a man he knew as “Bob” who drove a van down from Massachusetts. To substantiate his account, he provided a phone number associated with a man who died in July.

Singh pleaded guilty in 2017 to federal charges he sold a smokable “potpourri” that he knew contained synthetic marijuana. He said that experience taught him a lesson and blamed counterfeit products for the synthetic marijuana detected in Green Machine.

“100 percent, what you tested is a duplicated product,” he said.

‘Emerging hazard’

A Yolo! brand CBD vape oil cartridge,

The American Association of Poison Control Centers considers CBD an “emerging hazard” due to the potential for mislabeling and contamination.

One case last year involved an 8-year-old boy from Washington who was hospitalized after taking CBD oil his parents ordered online in hopes it would help his seizures, according to a case study in the journal Clinical Toxicology published in May. Instead, synthetic marijuana sent him to the hospital with symptoms including delirium and a rapid heart rate.

Other clusters of illnesses happened in Mississippi and around military bases in North Carolina.

Labeling of many CBD products has been documented as inaccurate. A 2017 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found 70 percent of CBD products were mislabeled. Researchers used an independent lab to test 84 products from 31 companies.

Fake or spiked CBD is enough of a concern that leaders of the US Hemp Authority industry group developed a certification program for CBD skin and health products. Vapes are not covered.

But local and state authorities have limited ability to pursue problem products to their roots.

After several Georgia high school students passed out from vaping last year, authorities began scrutinizing local tobacco shops. One of the CBD vape brands they targeted was called Magic Puff.

The drug enforcement team in Savannah and surrounding Chatham County arrested a shop owner and two employees. But they couldn’t follow the investigation further because it appeared the products were being manufactured elsewhere, possibly overseas. The team’s assistant deputy director, Gene Harley, said they provided a report to federal drug agents who handle such cases.

Magic Puff was still on shelves at a Florida store this summer and AP testing showed blueberry and strawberry cartridges contained synthetic marijuana. Preliminary results also suggested the presence of a toxin produced by a fungus.

Because CBD is the active ingredient in an FDA-approved drug, the FDA is responsible for regulating its sale in the US. But if CBD products are found to contain narcotics, the agency considers the investigation a job for the DEA, an FDA spokesman said.

The DEA says it is focused on drugs responsible for killing thousands of Americans like fentanyl and methamphetamines.

“These are going to be bigger priorities on enforcement,” DEA spokeswoman Mary Brandenberger said.

Experts such as Michelle Peace, a forensic scientist at Virginia Commonwealth University who has found synthetic marijuana in her own testing of CBD vapes, said the federal government should act quickly to protect the public.

“As long as it remains unregulated like it currently is,” Peace said, “you just give a really wide space for nefarious activity to continue.”

Medicinal herbology is the use of natural herbs, plants, and botanical knowledge to medically treat patients. The medical term is a substance or preparation that can affect the well-being of the person.

Breakfast with Martin Bester invited Dee Stephens, herbology founder, healer, herbalist and master blender to share more information about herbology and the use of cannabis oil. 

Stephens joined Martin Bester to talk about the medical benefits of cannabis oil and herbal mixtures. There are many misconceptions about herbal treatments – especially cannabis in particular. 

“Herb mixtures and oils is not about getting high – but rather to be healthy,” Dee mentioned.

“Tea is also a herb which is in a different form for people to use.” 

“People use CBD oils and mixtures for different reasons – to sleep better, to reduce stress and even to reduce pain.”

In the exploding cannabidiol (CBD) market, he who hesitates gets left behind. Companies like The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF) (FSE: YG3) are laser-focused and moving with a purpose to plant their flag in global markets forecast by leading cannabis researchers BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research to exceed $20 billion in less than five years.

CBD, which doesn’t get a person “high” like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), is a component of cannabis sativa that is widely trumpeted for a bevy of therapeutic benefits from cancer therapy to skincare. Hemp, which became legal in the U.S. at the start of 2019 and is already legal in dozens of countries worldwide, is defined as cannabis sativa containing less than 0.3% THC.

Canada, Yield Growth’s home country, is poised to have its CBD market burst onto the scenes later this year when beverages, edibles and topical CBD products from cannabis become legal.

As it stands, demand for CBD products is booming and the global “green rush” to bring new products to market is on. As evidenced by a non-stop stream of developments and deal flow, The Yield Growth Corp. is in the thick of it with its seasoned management and portfolio of brands, including Urban Juve, Wright & Well and UJ Beverages, as well as its manufacturing unit, W&W Manufacturing, and its strategies business, Thrive Activations.

C$3.7 Million in Deals, More Products on Deck

In addition to its own products, Yield Growth has a successful licensing and white label business that has generated C$3.7 million in signed agreements in 14 months. These agreements demonstrate the breadth of the company’s domain. One was for three-year exclusive rights to distribute brands and infuse products with CBD and THC in Greece and Cyprus. Another was for U.S. rights to infuse products with CBD and THC, a third was for international rights to products for a hemp-infused men’s line and a fourth covered European rights to infuse formulas with CBD.

Part of the reason for the success is owed to the company checking all the boxes for current consumers trends in cannabinoids (i.e. CBD, THC) and beauty and wellness products. Yield Growth’s formulas are made from a proprietary extraction technology and are designed to be infused with cannabinoids thought to be beneficial to the body. Giving consumers what they want, all products are made from natural, pure ingredients, are cruelty-free, contaminant-free and contain only high-quality essential oils and botanical extracts.

Analysts at Jeffries are bullish on the CBD health and beauty market, forecasting it to reach $25 billion by 2029 and potentially accounting for 10-15% of global skin care sales.

All told, The Yield Growth Corp. has 26 new products in stability testing with an additional 13 ready to begin testing in the coming weeks. These include six essential oil perfumes, four natural remedy blends with essential oils, foot cream and hand cream made with proprietary hemp root oil and exotic botanicals. Yield Growth has also developed eight men’s products, including four essential oil colognes, shaving cream, hair balm, beard oil, and eight white label versions of men’s products without hemp root oil.

Yield Growth CEO Penny White says that management is negotiating more licensing and distribution agreements that should be finalized by the end of 2019. “Our continued development of our catalogue of hemp formulas for CBD and THC infusion supports our international licensing strategy,” Mrs. White commented in a news release on the activity.

Success in Europe

As it expands its product bag, Yield Growth is also widening its sales channels. Recently, the European Union approved a Compliance Certificate for the Urban Juve Balance Face Moisturizer with Hemp Oil. The face moisturizer is the third Urban Juve product officially registered in Europe, joining the brand’s Anti-Aging Serum and Lip Balm. Another eight products are in the registration process, with expectations approvals will start flowing in within a month.

Furthermore, the company received a trademark from the E.U. protecting its Urban Juve name. With over 508 million citizens, the E.U. represents a substantial growth opportunity for Yield Growth, so protecting the IP is imperative.

The green light to commercialize the new face moisturizer is perfectly timed, as the product is being featured in Vogue Beauty Highlights in the November issue of UK Vogue, which will put the product in front of the magazine’s 4.1 million readers.

OMG(3)…South America Too

At the end of August, Yield Growth’s subsidiary Urban Juve Provisions, entered an exclusive distribution agreement with Organic Medical Growth OMG3. Per the pact, OMG3 has exclusive distribution rights for Urban Juve products in Colombia and Brazil for a period of five years.

Distribution of the Urban Juve Balance Face Moisturizer with Hemp Oil, Ritual Body Oil and Anti-Aging Serum will first begin in Colombia. Subsequently, registrations will be submitted to get Urban Juve products into more South American countries. The goal is to tap a $32 billion Latin America cosmetics market by extending the distribution agreement to maximize OMG3’s reach and put Urban Juve goods in at least 44,000 retail points which OMB3 has access to.

“With our new distribution alliances in place, Urban Juve products may soon become part of the daily skin care rituals for consumers in Europe and South America,” commented White.

According to OMG3 CEO Jorge Diaz, the future holds big plans for the two companies. “In addition to creating in-house and co-branded hemp seed and cannabis-based product lines, our strategy is to bring major international brands to the market in the areas of cosmetics, therapeutic and pharmaceutical products,” he said in a statement.

OMG3, a Canadian holding company, owns 100% of Estado Verde S.A.S, a Colombian company that has cannabis related licenses and permits, including the license for the cultivation of Psychoactive Cannabis (THC) and the License for the cultivation of Non-Psychoactive Cannabis (CBD). OMG3 has secured additional licenses by signing agreements with licensed producers in Colombia.

OMG3 has entered into a joint venture for a 4,000 hectares hemp production in Colombia as it positions itself to become the largest producer and distributor of cannabis products in South America, making it an ideal partner for Yield Growth to scale rapidly across the continent.

LAS VEGAS — Patients with chronic pain may perceive improvements in pain, sleep, anxiety, and depression with the use of hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) oil, according to a study presented at PAINWeek 2019, held September 3-7 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A total of 648 patients using CBD oil containing <0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol were included in the study. A standard 11-point Likert scale was used to assess the perceived benefits of the CBD product on chronic pain and associated conditions (ie, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and overall function), with 0 indicating no change and 10 indicating complete resolution.

Study participants reported using CBD oil for a mean duration of 122±8 days. The mean improvements were 4.81 to 6.48 for pain, 5.56 to 6.15 for insomnia, 5.36 to 5.94 for anxiety, 5.08 to 5.93 for depression, and 5.06 to 5.50 for overall function. A 4-time daily dosing of CBD oil was associated with statistically significant improvements in pain and related conditions compared with once-, twice-, or 3-times-daily dosing of the product.

Study limitations include its retrospective nature, the lack of a placebo control, and the reliance on self-reports for assessment of outcomes.

“Physicians and other healthcare professionals can use these data to help lower the opioid morphine equivalent dose, decrease the use of prescription sleep aids, and decrease the use of benzodiazepines for anxiety,” lead study author Daniel C. Roth, DO, told Clinical Pain Advisor. “Overall, CBD may be a clinically useful tool in combating the opioid epidemic, as it relates to controlled substances involved in accidental and illicit overdose deaths.”

I am a 49-year-old woman who had a massive heart attack in April. My father died of a massive heart attack at 49. I have four stents in three arteries and am on Brilinta, low-dose aspirin, blood pressure medication and so forth. I have essential tremor, first noticing the tremors in middle school. The tremor is in my hands, making writing nearly impossible, and I have head bobs. I have an internal tremor that never stops. A previous practitioner prescribed a month’s trial of beta blockers several years ago. I noticed no relief with the tremor, but was physically ill for the first 30 minutes of the morning in the first two weeks. Recently, I found an online blog regarding essential tremor and CBD oil. Nearly all of the bloggers found some level of relief using this treatment. If I choose to try CBD oil to assist with my tremor is there a risk of it interfering with my heart and blood pressure medications?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a nonpsychoactive substance found in cannabis, as opposed to tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the best-known psychoactive component.

CBD is typically sold as an oil and has been receiving press as a potential treatment for a wide variety of medical issues. Many or most of these claims have no data to support them.

Anecdotal reports, such as most blogs, are neither reliable nor scientific — and may or may not be true. There also is an issue with proving the dosage and purity of products said to contain CBD.

However, in the case of essential tremor, there is some evidence: Studies in mice have shown benefit with CBD, although a single case report showed effectiveness of THC, but not CBD in essential tremor.

The issue of drug interactions is a significant one. CBD inhibits two powerful pathways the body uses to detoxify drugs, the CPY3A4 and CYP2D6 systems.

This is a serious issue for you. Ticagrelor (Brilinta), an anticoagulant, is metabolized by CYP3A4, as are some of the statin drugs usually prescribed to people with heart blockages.

The effect of the anticoagulant could be much higher than expected, leading to bleeding risk. Other commonly used heart medications are metabolized by CYP2D6, and the effect on these medications is unpredictable.

I can’t recommend CBD products given the medications you are taking, but would suggest you consider alternative treatments. You may have read about deep brain stimulation and ultrasound, two powerful and effective treatments for people whose symptoms have not responded to standard treatments.

This question is for my husband. How safe is drinking tea while on warfarin? He has his INR checked monthly, and for the most part it stays between 2 and 3. He watches his vitamin K intake regularly. He has read conflicting stories of how tea interacts with warfarin by making the INR levels high.

Tea comes in two major types: black tea, which is fermented, and green tea, which is not. Black tea has no known interactions with warfarin (Coumadin).

Green tea contains small amounts of vitamin K, which could make the INR lower and the warfarin less effective. However, the effect is likely to be small. Further, if he drinks a consistent amount per day, his dose can be adjusted to reflect his vitamin K intake.
