A friend suggested that I try this to help with pain while I am awaiting a hip replacement. I am taking Naproxen from the doctor when I can find a chemist who has some (feels almost like a wartime black market!). I know the CBD oil is not the psychoactive part of cannabis but I still feel a bit wary. Is anyone here able to share experiences?

Holland and Barrett do it. smile Its very mainstream now.

Don't take it with prescription medication unless you speak to a doctor or pharmacist. That goes for anything from H&B.

I know nothing about it at all, but I Ve heard said for what it’s worth that the oil in Holland and Barrett and other high street shops is so weak to be ineffective

What even H&B shampoo, toiletries and dried fruit and nuts?

There was a thread about it a while back, where people said where they'd got theirs and posted their thoughts on its effectiveness.

MrsJamJam Here's a link to the thread I started a while back:

I use the capsules from CBD Brothers. Theirs are from cannabis rather than hemp, which (allegedly!) is more effective. The H & B one is very low strength and I think it's from hemp.

I've certainly noticed that I sleep better when I take the CBD Bros capsules.

Dosage is tricky to quote as everyone is different and I'm ultra-sensitive to anything, especially prescription medicines! The usual advice is to start low and increase as necessary.

Hope that helps! smile
