How to address PMR pain while decreasing prednisone
Hello, I too am very interested in this topic. John, any insight to low dosage of Prednisone in conjunction with CBD?

@lumberjill, I have no experience with CBD topical oils although I do take 1.5 oz of organic hemp oil daily for the omega-3 benefits. Considering that the CBD might help with pain but is not doing anything to address the inflammation, I personally would not think it's beneficial but I have no medical knowledge or background and it's just my opinion. The prednisone addresses the inflammation which is the root cause of the pain in PMR.
