I have an N=3 (3 participants) study regarding the safety of the CBD oil I have been using. I had been using it daily for 3 weeks. The key word is ‘had.’ Why? Because about a week ago the bottle was polished off by my 5 and 3 year old.
I avoid debates about disease causation because most are arguing within a ‘direct cause’ paradigm. Not everyone that smokes gets lung cancer. But it happens. Not everyone that gets into a car accident, breaks a bone. But it happens. Not everyone that gets a vaccine, develops autism. But it happens.
Because I feel well overall, the CBD experiment for symptom improvement wasn’t really a good marker of changes to show effectiveness. With that said, I will say I feel my energy levels are more…level. I sat through a conference last weekend with lots of traveling and sitting. With all that sitting and absorbing deep concepts of learning, a nap is usually welcomed and anticipated. But I needed none of it.
I’ve been pretty indifferent and even have some walls up when it comes to CBD and all the claimed benefits. The walls stem from people claiming it as a miracle for virtually everything but ignore all basic health practices first. Chronic illness is lifestyle illness and chronic illness doesn’t happen because someone is deficient in CBD oil.
My 1st grader came home from school commissioned to find as many ‘box tops’ as he could for a school project. As he rummaged our cabinets, he get seriously discouraged. “What’s wrong?”

Nutritional debates will never end. Most debates have the starting point of ‘XYZ food item as being good or bad?’ This is why the debate will never be settled. People are trying to create a scientific argument within a moral framework. This is when nutrition turns into religion or dogma.
It’s cool to have people ask how the experiment is going. Honestly, it has been hard to quantify until I started hearing fellow gym goers talk about the workout load from last week (the week of January 14) and how they felt wrecked. I look back at what we did and hearing how sore they were, last week’s workout load has given my experience with the Somaderm gel new light as I haven’t been sore at all.

Whether it’s a blood or a scratch test, I think testing for food allergies and sensitivities is overrated. These are reactions to disruptions higher up the food chain (pun intended). Consider a few of these tests before testing your food reactions.
