Medical grade CBD oil in Ontario?
June 12, 2020 2:48 PM   Subscribe

Guidance for quality CBD oil recommends finding organic products free of heavy metals and pesticides, with accurate labelling, that have been tested by a 3rd party lab. I’m having a hard time finding this. Any recs for specific products obtainable in Ontario, or for sites I can use to find them?

Avidekel has been used in clinical trials and has an excellent track record, unfortunately it’s apparently $150-200 CAD a pop. Looking for something indica-based with a comparable ratio (20:1 CBD:THC) that costs less than that.

(This is for a person with frontotemporal dementia, do not want anything heavily psychoactive. The other stuff I’ve seen used in studies are synthetic products, eg Sativex, that I think are probably unobtainable outside of a study or treatment for epilepsy or MS.)

I use Hexo Elixir CBD oil to help me sleep and it's 2mg/ml of THC to 55mg/ml of CBD. It's out of stock at the OCS right now but sold in private stores. I experience no psychosis at all with this, just a gentle sort of brain focusing (I used to wake up in the middle of the night and my brain would switch on making it hard to get back to sleep but if I spray this before sleep my brain doesn't start up in my wakeful phases).

(Forgive me if this is chatfilter, but I'd love to hear what led you to this for FTD patients, as my dad has it and I'm always on the lookout for palliative options.)

MeFi's own (but not active), fraying and heather, run a CBD hemp farm in Oregon. If they can't provide for you, they may be able to help point you in the right direction.
