My CBD Interview with ShilohHyla Cass, MD
Intrigued, I agreed and was so glad I did. I was delighted at the way he brought out a broad range of information through thoughtful questioning in a warm, conversational tone like he was making a new friend — and he certainly did! So it’s with great pleasure that I present you with not just the cool podcast, but his insightful intro, list of resources, and even, a testimonial.
From Shiloh’s intro to our podcast:
In this episode of the podcast, I spoke with Dr. Hyla Cass about what has fueled her career-long desire to get to the bottom of what ails her patients, whether as a replacement for or alongside, more conventional treatments. As a renowned expert in functional medicine, Dr. Cass has written extensively about topics such as the nutritional supplementation of prescription drugs, alternative approaches to overcoming addiction, and even ways patients can avoid addiction to begin with by employing natural ways to elevate mood, battle stress, and increase energy.
Her latest passion involves the many uses of CBD oil for a variety of conditions, which she writes about in her new booklet, Your Amazing Itty Bitty Guide to Cannabis: 15 Key Steps to Understanding the Many Benefits of the Cannabis Plant.
In this episode, we discuss:
- The importance of recognizing emotional trauma in the treatment of physical symptoms
- Natural approaches to postpartum depression
- The potential link between prescription drugs and mass shootings
- The influence of economics on healthcare policy and conventional medical treatment in the US
- Her viewpoint as a physician on the challenges facing the US health insurance system
- How CBD oil can be used to address a wide variety of issues
- Recent developments (and historic research) into the use of hallucinogenics to treat mental illness
- The importance of organic eating, moving every day, and social/family activities to promoting health and well-being

A few weeks later, I was delighted to receive this from Shiloh, with permission to share:
“My son has been battling sometimes debilitating headaches and associated nausea since he was 5 years old. When they come on, sometimes the only thing that will resolve the pain for him is a long process of being in a darkened room, running a hot bath, and waiting out the hours until they pass. Ten years later, it appears we have finally found an easy, affordable, and consistent consistent remedy in Dr. Cass’ hemp oil extract. We tried 2 droppers of the 500 mg bottle, and within 10 minutes, the headache that had started to kick-in was completely gone. He couldn’t believe it, and neither could we. A week later another one started…same dosage, same results. Gone in 10 minutes. We joked about placebo, but then when the third one started and it worked again in the same amount of time, there was no question that we were seeing a cure, not a hope. This stuff works! He also said that each day he’s taken it he has woken up the following morning feeling more refreshed and not tired. That’s really something for a 15 year old kid! Great product, can’t recommend it enough. The light lemon flavor make it pleasant for him to take as well. We are amazed and can’t wait to see what other issues it might help with. Thank you for a great natural product Dr. Cass!”
My comment: These headaches are hard to treat. The usual meds are not always effective and have side effects – so this story truly warms my heart! By the way, although children of all ages are given CBD safely and effectively, it’s best to consult your health care practitioner first.
