David Crosby Talks About CBD

David Crosby answers questions about CBD (Cannabidiol)

  • What are your thoughts on CBD?

Crosby: "I think you’re going to find that CBD, once it’s refined, concentrated, packaged and marketed is going to become a hugely successful painkiller – because the other main families of painkillers, the opioids, if you do them for a few weeks you can get hooked - and that’s a real problem. And the NSAIDs (aspirin and ibuprofen) are not good for your kidneys and your liver, particular your kidneys. So a new family of painkillers coming on the market that doesn’t have the catastrophic side effect of addiction or damage to your vital organs, that's going to be huge. It's going to significantly disrupt the multi-billion dollar aspirin and ibuprofen market"

"Bottom line is CBD is a great analgesic because it ameliorates the pain and acts as an anti-inflamatory without side effects."

"My sincere belief is that once we teach people how to use CBD, it’s going to be huge. It could be even bigger than the getting high part.”  

  • How has CBD helped you?

Crosby: "CBD has been a life saver for me. It allows me to continue performing at concerts around the world at my age (78), and to make new music - which I love to do. I have two bad shoulders with chronic pain and I've endured broken bones and dislocations. I've also developed hand injuries that affect my guitar playing. I have tendonitis in the middle two fingers of both hands, and I’m developing arthritis. It’s not enough to stop me from playing, but I do have those things going on that I treat with CBD."

"CBD helps with my aches and pains and helps me get rest. I have chronic pain in both shoulders. When you get older, you’re often dealing with chronic pain. Everybody at some point has some pain in their shoulder, their knee, their foot or their elbow and CBD is the best way to get relief."

  • How do you take CBD?

Crosby: “I use CBD two ways. I vaporize pot that’s high in CBD to get it that way. The other way is I rub a topical CBD cream into both shoulders, sometimes my neck, and on my hands when they’re hurting.”

"We'll probably start with a CBD brand before cannabis because CBD is legal most everywhere."
