Question: Does CBD help with restless leg syndrome (RLS)?

Answer: Okay, so great question and I'm going give you two components to an answer. First, I'm going go into the research on CBD and restless leg syndrome and then I'm going go into the results that my own patients have experienced. So what I'm going walk you through in terms of research is a case report. Now in this case report there were six patients who had very severe restless leg syndrome and they were on prescription medications which were not very effective for them. They were getting side effects from them and for a lot of these patients they had no other treatment options left. They had basically exhausted all lines of treatment. So five of the patients reported using recreational cannabis and one of the patients reported using CBD oil. They all reported total relief of their symptoms associated with the restless leg syndrome with either occasional use of marijuana or CBD oil. And to be honest, my own patients with restless leg syndrome have experienced similar results. The vast majority of them have experienced total relief of their symptoms of restless leg syndrome with the use of high CBD either marijuana or hemp derived products. Many of them were able to come off of their prescription medications which they use for restless leg syndrome, and a lot of them were able to come off of the prescription medications that they were on for their restless leg syndrome.
