I’ve taken Levothyroxine for my thyroid for years. I recently started using cbd for anxiety. my doctor reduced my Levothyroxine but I suspect it’s still too much.

Great to hear that your Levothyroxine has been decreased! Cannabis is known to help patients with autoimmune disorders such as what may be causing your low thyroid now. Taking a high CBD product such as CBD:THC ratio of 20:1 (does not make you "high") twice daily every day decreases the inflammation and helps improve autoimmune conditions. However, every 2-3 weeks while taking this product you will have to increase the dose as you will build tolerance. Your doctor will continue to check your thyroid levels to make sure you are taking the correct dose of Levothyroxine. Keep up the good work!
