In this video, my friend Kelly and I talk about seizures and seizure meds, dystonia, CBD, and navigating physical therapy in a COVID world.
(NOTE: This is the only USDA organic CBD sold in the country and is only sold through advocates; I am advocate and make a small commission on sales):
The reasons I give this particular CBD to my son:
1) It's organic and grown on a farm in North Carolina.
) All CBD is derived from hemp from the same mother plant so every hemp batch is genetically identical and produces consistent CBD oil.
3) The CBD extraction process is done using Swiss CO2 extraction versus chemical extraction, which is more expensive but less toxic.
4) This company handles everything from the growing of the plants to the bottling of the CBD oil- I'm a huge fan of their quality control.
Another CBD I like (but it's not organic and does not have all of the same features as the CBD above) https://buybluebird.com/products/hemp-complete
Note: CBD can interfere with the efficacy of other meds due to its effect on the liver (cytochrome p450 inhibitor) so we always give CBD at least an hour away from other meds (before or after).
For pain, prescription only: Diclofenac Potassium (note: Diclofenac Sodium is NOT the same and is not as effective in our experience) https://www.goodrx.com/diclofenac-potassium/what-is
