A daily dose  Curious minds turn to CBD
to treat range of ailments

'Many are finding it very effective,' says researcher.

With the legalization of cannabis in Canada, people are now experimenting on marijuana-based treatments like CBD, rather than taking medicines prescribed by the doctors.

A recent US study by a cannabis marketing and research firm for a medical hub collected data from 2400 CBD users and came to the conclusion that 42 percent of the people stopped their usual medications and turned to CBD for treating health problems such as insomnia, depression, anxiety, and joint pain.

Former B.C. Health Minister Terry Lake said that CBD helped him get away with on-and-off sleep medication. He took the help of oral consumption and said, "I no longer have the need to use prescription sleeping medication."

Since CBD has low THC content, it won't make you high, therefore making it an alternative to medicines.

Concerns about side effects

Rielle Capler, a postdoctoral research fellow with the B.C. Centre on Substance Use, said that people were adopting this method in order to escape the adverse effects of pharmaceutical drugs. "They are looking at, and experimenting with CBD and other forms of cannabis," she said. "It's something that we are seeing a lot of patients using it for ... and many are finding it very effective."

Lake moved from politics to the marijuana industry in August 2017, saying at the time he was optimistic cannabis could be used to substitute other types of medications.

He says that the sales of CBD are through the roof.

"We can't make it fast enough," he said.

In March 2018, the World Health Organization came up with its report which said that CBD posed no health risk, hence showing preliminary evidence that it could be useful to cure Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and cancer, among other dreadful diseases.

Despite the positive outcome, researchers say they need to be more thorough with their research to understand the side-effects of CBD.

"We are just beginning to learn about the potential benefits of CBD ... but right now there is still a gap in research evidence," said Dr. Bonnie Henry, the Provincial Health Officer of B.C.

He also advised that people who are using CBD with other medications for the first time, should go and consult their doctor before consuming them, as they can react with other medicines.

Customer demand

In B.C., CBD is sold online through and at a government-run retail store in Kamloops..

The BC Liquor Distribution Branch, which distributes non-medical cannabis for the province, won't reveal sales figures, but CBD products on its website are often available in limited quantities or sold-out, suggesting a growing interest in their potential benefits.

In a statement, the agency said it regularly replenishes its stock and "is continuing to add new products to its assortment in order to cater to customer demand."
