"Isolated high-dose CBD is also a drug from the pharmacy, but unlike THC-containing medical cannabis, it is not psychoactive. It is therefore not a "narcotic", but has primarily anti-inflammatory, analgesic, cell-protective and mood-regulating effects [1,2].
Over-the-counter CBD preparations are not suitable for medical use because the dosage is too low. In addition, there may be fluctuations regarding the quality and concentration of ingredients. Therapy with high-dose CBD from the pharmacy belongs in the hands of experienced doctors. They know what you need so that you can get better again if possible.
