Aloha! I hope this communication finds you well as we head into one of the truly greatest times of the year!
As many of you know, I've been carrying several CBD products in my office over the past year. CBD has been a very hot topic in the Healthcare world for several years. Studies continue to tout the healing properties and efficacy of CBD, which is a natural chemical derived from the plants.
I am very encouraged, as you should be as well, to see good science being devoted to finding alternatives to harmful drugs!
How I Got Interested in CBD
I took active interest in CBD when my wife and I realized the impact of raising a brain-injured child in tandem with the modern demands and stresses of childhood. He was not at all thriving, and appeared to be headed for a life of trauma, misery and unhappiness.
I don't mean to offend anyone when I say, "brain-injured child." I know there are several of you who have children with more severe conditions. My child is an extraordinary kid. He has a good heart and a very inquisitive mind. He is our little scientist, movie director, game organizer, maestro to his little brothers… when he is well.
You know what I’m talking about – not exactly Jekyll and Hyde, but extremes in emotion and behavior that were VERY challenging to manage for all of us.
Our son also was one who, when in a social setting, was never comfortable in his own skin. He developed ticks to help control his anxiety. It became so intense, that even before we enrolled him preschool, my wife, however reluctant, was already exploring the "proper medication" to help this poor kid… who went from sweet child to borderline sociopath at a moment’s notice.
Things Just Kept Getting Worse
In elementary school he did well enough to get by; we had him tested for a variety of "things," and not one "thing" fit him as a diagnosis.
Before his 5th grade year we moved from Costa Mesa to Fullerton. Moving him away from familiar stomping grounds, where his mom had carefully groomed friendships and opportunities to help him continue to take steps forward with his social phobias, brought on additional stresses as well as a setback. Instead of two steps forward and one step back – to us it felt like one step forward and two steps back!
The beginning of that school year was anguishing. His eyes began to spasm with a coping tick, he cleared his throat almost constantly. Going to school each morning was met with great resistance.
This Had to Stop
This time my wife was certain that he needed to take medication and I didn't disagree. Still, I did not feel right about putting my child on ANY of the available drugs that claim to manage such a condition. My son's brain was too creative, his ideas were too big and when he expressed joy, it was too good to suppress with a prescription medication.
With much pondering and prayer, my search took me into CBD research and case studies. I examined some research discussing CBD’s effect on epilepsy and brain injuries. When I came to understand the potential benefits without side effects (WITH OUT KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS!) I decided this would be an answer for our son.
CBD Cured Our Son!
I found a CBD oil that had been used successfully for these conditions. I already had great interest in essential oils and have worked with essential oils at home and in my office with patients for many years. From the very first dosage, my wife and I witnessed noticeable improvements. His ticks went away within a few days. The resistant mornings ended. My wife commented that for nearly the first time in his life, he looked like he was comfortable in his own skin.
CBD oil has healed my son. We have seen such wonderful improvements: He is at ease in social settings. He has spoken in front of our congregation at church on more than one occasion. He has made really great friends and is able to develop relationships with other people of his age and enjoy every wonder and joy that comes from these young friendships.

Answers to Your Questions (FAQs)
Many of you have asked me about CBD products. With public and professional awareness growing as to the benefits of CBD, we are all going to be confronted with many more questions and perhaps some confusions. It is worth voicing some of these concerns and clearing things up.
1. Does CBD get you high? NO. Simply put, CBD is the non-psychotropic, active ingredient from hemp oil. It does not produce a "high" that is commonly experienced with the plant’s psychotropic ingredient, THC.
2. How can you guarantee purity and potency? Currently, CBD is sold in all 50 states; and it is true there is a lack of consistent regulations from state to state, and inconsistent quality from product to product. Much like the vitamin industry, companies are not required to have their products third-party tested to verify their contents. Third-party testing by a reputable lab is the only way to guarantee purity and potency.
3. There are dozens of CBD products flooding the market, how do you choose which are best? This can get tricky. From my experience I have found that too often these products are disappointingly overpriced, don’t contain enough active ingredient to be effective, or are not formulated properly to enable the healing properties of the plant to take effect in the body. The best solution is to source your product from someone you can trust to have your best interests at heart.
4. Do the benefits outweigh the cost when comparing CBD products to Tylenol, aspirin and other OTC medications? Many of you have told me that your body can no longer tolerate ibuprofen or Tylenol for different reasons. And so I set out to find the best CBD product for the best price, so every single one on my patients who needs help with conditions of inflammation, stress, pain, or Lowered Immune Function can have access. Show me we're comparing apples to apples, and we'll match or undercut the price of any other product like this on the market!
