    You can only import it.
    This means it is easier to tax.
    It’s a shame profit comes before the people.

    Does it work or not?? Please help??

    I’ve been using various CBD products for over 5 years to treat anxiety, but the only one that really works is Mima Remedies. The full-spectrum oil from Mima Remedies has been a life-saver, and it’s actually affordable at $0.06/mg of CBD.

    What did the researchers/producers do about the company thay had NO CBD OIL in its product? Why were they not named so ppl can steer clear of them?

  9. gxmxd on November 23, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    I don’t agree with calling it a supplement cause In that case thc is a supplement lol

    For fuck sake. I was thought it was building up to her trying it. What an anti climax 🤦🏻‍♂️

  14. FD C on November 23, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    When the BBC, the high brand wants you to use CBD, then don’t use them. They never want you to be a cure. I use organic coconut oil + green tea and it is a powerful natural herb.

    I know a man who cures his memory problems, just by taking coconut oil.

    People drink gallons of this stuff and she’s afraid of a drop. She’s better off staying away, given her caution.

    Before you purchase any CBD product….always check the Certificate of Analysis (COA) first✔. Any reputable CBD company will be able to provide a lab report for their products.

    Don’t just check for a potency test (CBD, THC etc), has it passed a heavy metals test? a pesticide test? a microbials test? mycotoxins test? residual solvents test?

    If you are taking CBD oil for health reasons, then you need to be sure it’s clean and safe to consume 👍.

  25. Jamie Isbitt on November 23, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    I find this video to be disingenuous simply because the reporting over cautiously states they don’t know enough about CBD to rule out the effects it has on the body, brain and how it interacts with prescribed medications and failed to indicate if they have yet found any of concern.
    This was just one UK researcher in one laboratory and the BBC either knowingly omitted the fact the extensive research into CBD has been conducted in many countries such as Israel for over two decades who have not found any long term irreversible adverse effects or the BBC researchers and reporters were not sufficiently knowledgable to report on a subject that could have a potentially positive life changing impact on individuals use of CBD by not only treating conditions successfully where other prescription pharmaceuticals have been prescribed that often require supplementary prescriptions to curtail the side effects of the original prescription. Studies do exist providing evidence where patients have actually reduced or successfully stopped the use of powerful prescription and harmful drugs through the use of CBD products.
    It is disheartening that THC is regarded as potential threat to health due to it’s psycho active properties . Research has highlighted many benefits of THC and in low doses above the UK threshold have many benefits known as the entourage effect.
    On a more liberal note there is no difference between recreational use or medical use. If you consume higher THC strains of cannabis you get the enjoyable effect of any intoxicant such as alcohol and still receive the health benefits preferably though oral application as opposed to smoking although the legal oxymoron allows another psycho active substance alcohol to be perfectly legal and sociably acceptable despite decades of irrefutable evidence showing the negative effects in regards to human health the economic and social strain to society despite cannabis existing in human society approximately the same period of time as alcohol.

    UK farming could be given a life line and increase UK GDP if the whole plant could be utilised as the flowers and seeds also make one of natures single most highly nutritious food source. Hemp seeds provide the full omega spectrum and quality protein comparable to that of grass fed beef. The East Yorkshire farmer provides straw for just two of the 50,000 known different uses. In addition to this hemp sequesters as much carbon per acre in 1 crop cycle as 20 year old trees on the same acreage whilst simultaneously improving the soil for rotational crops.

    She should brush her damn teeth and close her mouth cuz her chin is receding into the back of her head, maybe that would help with her anxiety and what not.

    aswagandha is another indian herb that helps with anxiety. I think the rest of the world should know about this.

    She is like "I have anxiety and depression, and I take chemicals that screw me up even more, and no I won’t take this natural product that can fix that all and make me healthier"

    Good luck!

  34. dominic alexander on November 23, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    I thought cbd oil was just another gimmick. Everyone usually jumps on the bandwagon to these sort of things. However after trying it for myself, i use it everyday now. I came across this website and it’s really helped me pick the right one

    I tried some CBD oil and it definitely helped me with stress/ anxiety

  39. Jim Jam on November 23, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Nothing compares to making it yourself. Buy hemp plants online, make butter, and fuck getting sold shit

  40. JayBenny77 on November 23, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Thanks for the inconclusive conclusion! 😕

  41. Khaos969 on November 23, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    I didn’t know I had anxiety until I took CBD oil…. I was like "whats going on here I don’t have that worried feeling in my stomach anymore" it was that obvious.

  42. Shannon O'Sullivan on November 23, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    I had been using sertraline for 4 years and while it did help initially the effects wore off after a few months. I stayed taking it as I felt I needed to be taking something. Slowly my body became very fatigued and tired which made me not want to leave the house never mind the anxiety of leaving the house. About a year ago a friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer and in my research of cannabis oil, I also saw it could help with anxiety. I bought my first bottle a year ago (Dr. Hemp Me 10% CBD oil to be precise) and my whole life has completely changed. I am back working and more importantly socialising with friends. I do still get small amounts of anxiety sometimes but nothing that I cant power through. I have also been using the oil in conjunction with the Wim Hoff breathing method and cold showers and I urge others to try these methods before going down the route of prescribed medication.

    CBD is really amazing but for anxiety, energy, pain management and stress kratom is even better!
    I have tried every kind of kratom here in Indonesia and there is no question about it that the original wildly grown one is every way better than those farmed one´s and basically every kratom in the market is farmed one. Here is one local project called Borneo Energy that is sourcing only this wild grown kratom (and Tongkat Ali). It makes more work compared to harvesting it from the farms but this is more nature-friendly, because kratom farming is destroying some areas from the important rainforests. So with all reasons I recommend this one, can find it from

    What an utterly pointless 12 mins that was.

  45. Cannon Fodder on November 23, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    She didn’t even try it 😂

  46. steward on November 23, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    The dumb part in all of this is thc is known to cure cancer. “Rick Simpson oil” it is known as. U r taking the thc out and only leaving in cbd. That’s like asking men to join the army and chopping their legs off saying we only need ur arms. Leave it in its natural form. It has its own benefits. Governments are run by dumb arses

  47. Carl Lineberry on November 23, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Glad to find a legit source for cbd oil that is water-based. Helped me in tons of ways

  48. Ryan on November 23, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Another way for big pharma to make £ by using placebo effects
