Yes. Just started using CBD oil for idiopathic peripheral neuropathy, both feet. Have had PN for past 30 years, controlled somewhat with traditional meds, but a few months ago meds not working anymore. One thing I worry about is that the CBD market is like the wild west. We have to trust the producers completely about amount of CBD in bottle and where it comes from. There are no scientific studies that that I am aware of. You will read on lots of websites "its good for pain", but nothing documented. So..me sites say "Take 20-30 mg; once or twice per day. That means a range of 20-60. How useful is that? What would happen if Tylenol directions said "take 1/2 to full tablet once or twice/day?"Anyway, just started using CBD oil a few weeks ago. Some days seems to work, but other days not so good. Tip:keeping under tongue difficult for 90 seconds if sitting upright, because mouth filsl with saliva diluting CDB strength. I tip my head back, then insert the oil. Also smear on "Lidocaine 5% Topical ointment" Again, some days seems to work; others not. Even when it works feet still hurt if I walk just a few steps. Relieves the pain if just sitting down. There are no magic bullets.
