Episode 081: An Introduction to CBD with Dr. Hyla Cass

For years I’ve heard people rave about the benefits of CBD oil and how it’s only thing that helped them get a good nights sleep. So after years of taking prescriptions and supplements that weren’t very effective, I decided that it was time for me to give CBD oil a shot myself.

So a couple of months ago, a friend took me to a cannabis dispensary and the whole experience made me I realize that I had no context as to how to chose which options were best for me.

Were they organic? If so, what did that even mean? As we know, in the beauty industry, terms like “natural” and “organic” don’t hold weight because those terms haven’t been defined. 

How were they defined here?  Are some brands known as better sources than others? What’s the difference between THC and CBD? All of these questions whirled about in my brain so I decided that it was time for an episode on it.

In this week’s brand new episode of The Live FAB Life Podcast, I’m joined by Dr. Hyla Cass.

Dr Cass is an integrated physician and psychiatrist who combines the best of leading-edge natural medicine with the modern science in her clinical practice. She helps individuals withdraw from psychiatric medications and substances of abuse, or to avoid medication altogether, through the use of specific natural supplements, including her hemp oil extract.  

In this interview, you’ll hear us discuss:

  • An integrative approach for getting a good night’s sleep 

  • The relationship between cortisol (the stress hormone) and sleep

  • The role and implications of inflammation

  • Using CBD for sleep

  • The Endocannabonoid system
