CBD Oil

Posted by suemer @suemer, Sep 11, 2018

Has anyone tried this for pain? My daughter-in-law is waiting for steroid injections as she has 2 buldging disks in her back and a torn ligament. Her doctors prescribed Tylenol and Tylenol 3. Did not work. CBD Oil has made a difference. She swears by it! Anyone else tried it?

Martha, If I may ask, what strain did you get,and did you use a vetted vendor? One who tests their products for safety and purity? Reds are generally best for pain. You can get higher levels of concentration depending on your level of pain, but when you jump up to a more concentrated product, obviously the less concentrated need to be consumed in greater quantities. I have 200X that I ONLY use for severe pain, also liquid extract which I use the same way. Red Bentuangie is one red strain that helps at night with sleep also.

Oh, was so glad to see this information, since I just took a leap of faith and ordered Kratom, for my hip pain, year long pain, while I tried to find any other solution besides THR. I also tried CBD oil, with NO improvement, and I just will NOT take opiates (am a retired Psych RN, drug rehab work). I will post when time permits the assessment of relief. The FDA does NOT protect us, it protects BIG PHARMA, and the implant business. martha

I do understand the desperate need to escape pain and many are forced to take drugs just to stay sane and get relief. Living with pain 24/7 is something which unless you have lived it, as I did a few years ago, you would not understand. I would have sold my soul to the devil to be pain free for just a few minutes. Yet after researching about Kratom I read that it is used to get folks off of opiates and like opiates it is addictive, yet is this a Big Pharm scare tactic? Perhaps someday I will be at a pain level again that it won't matter if it is addictive or not, but now am managing to deal will mild to moderate current health issues. . I have even had to give up my Nsaids because of climbing blood pressure, and have accepted living a life with a certain amount of pain, after all I'm turning 70 the end of this year. I am experimenting with CBD oil because I have not read of usage side effects that worry me. Like me many have discovered CBD does have various benefits, for me if I am getting pain relief it is mild, yet love the calming effect it has.

What type of implants are you referring to? I am assuming it for you hip. I do know many success stories of friends with hip replacement. Yet I lost a dear friend a few years ago who originally had hip replacement surgery at a Saint Louis MO hospital by a famous orthopedic surgeon. She wouldn't heal because she picked up a drug resistant bacteria in her hip. Trying desperately to cure the infection she took trips to Mayo in MN to see specialists. Her last trip there was the last time I saw her, as she lost her battle with this bacteria. It wasn't the implant per say, it was what she picked up during surgery.

@gardeningjunkie: "Yet after researching about Kratom I read that it is used to get folks off of opiates and like opiates it is addictive, yet is this a Big Pharm scare tactic?" ASK YOURSELF THIS: What happens to rehab centers, large parts of the entire pharmaceutical industry if there is a relatively cheap alternative. OF COURSE Scott Gottlieb would love you to think it is an OPIATE, and addictive. Who lobby's him the hardest?

Watch the movie on NFLX, Leaf of Faith and then ask the same questions. I do not need to take it, and if I don't have pain, I don't take it.

Do some people get mildly addicted? Probably. There is something called STEM that you can take to ease off Kratom, but I am not interested in easing off something that has allowed me to live opiate free and relatively pain free.

If you are on Facebook there are many groups about Kratom, even Ladies of Kratom. You will learn a lot by keeping an open mind and not listening to our government like they were all knowing. They have deliberately disregarded real science to spout junk science to help the Pharma industry. JMO

OK now you are in for it because you have gotten me thinking about our governments lack of consumer protection and I will get carried away!!!
I completely agree with you about the influence of lobbyist for manufactures affecting what legislators consider legal or allowable. I suffer from severe Allergic Contact Dermatitis, ACD an allergic form of eczema. In middle age I became allergic to many of the legal chemicals added to our cleaning, grooming products, used to accelorate blending of material like poly/cotton, nylon, elastic, adhesives, shoes and so on and I gotten my productive life back. I have had to replace 95% of my wardrobe, all my shoes, grooming products, cleaning products and the list goes on. These chemicals are legal in the USA, or legal if used in a certain percentage considered legally safe, whereas many in Europe have been banned for years. That is because the major chemical companies use lobbyist that have enticements to get our congress and FDA to allow these toxins. Big money. I ask you why does a bottle of dish soap need to have a shelf life of a hundred years? The preservatives allowed, for example in Dawn the MI/MCI are pure poison. Sure the makers of Dawn like the fact that the batch shelf life is long, but the chemical companies have a steady market for their product. Many may not realize these chemicals and elements actually transfer though your skin and into your bloodstream. Your skin is not the barrier you imagine it. Our immune system and in my case sends out warrior "histamines" to battle these elements it perceives as toxic, trying to protect me. They have the opposite affect and raise my inflammation, thus giving me an autoimmune disease, eczema, which is chronic. Another example of lobbyist controlling congress is the tobacco industry. We all know the lobbyist win. Still the general public is becoming more aware. The toxic MI/MCI had been removed voluntarily from Cottonelle personal wipes and many baby wipes over 2 years ago. I like to think the letters I have written have have helped as I am sure many others have written to product makers also. Many wondered why babies were getting blistering bottom rashes, it was the toxic ingredients in these products, especially the MI/MCI. Babies were better off in the old days when we used a wash cloth or cloth diaper to clean off their bottoms. I have had great success on my skin using a bar soap made just like women did for centuries. Just 2 ingredients, lard and lye. Scary to read that lye is in it? Yes, but the lye is transformed into glycerin during the soap making process so you are only in contact with lard and glycerin. I use my Grandma's Lye soap, a bar soap for face and body exclusively and as a shampoo also. Available on Amazon (I have no financial interest in Grandma's, just grateful for their safe product so I don't have to try to make my own safe soap and shampoo). The shampoo works best with soft water. No more dry itchy skin in need of toxic moisturizers and no more itchy scalp. Just read what is in your grooming products, then search out the meaning and side effects of all the chemical and weird 15 letter word ingredients. The lights will come on. Many on this site have other autoimmune diseases, as I do. Once you have one autoimmune disease you are incline to get others, so if you can take precautions start now.
If only I had known!

tikigod18, re: strains of CBD, I decided that, the cost and lack of knowledge of plants, and especially the pain relief factor, or lack, made no sense for me to purchase, tylenol worked better (side effects notwithstanding) so a trial of the Kratom is next, thanks

OK, no pushing or promoting here! If you ever have questions, please feel free to ask. If I sound like a missionary, it's because I have found something that can relieve my pain that is legal, not addicting, and allows me to function fairly normally and I like to let people know it is out there. Certainly not for everyone though!

@gardeningjunkie: Interesting and common story. My daughter-in-law went into the hospital for torn meniscus surgery, and came home with staph, and a pic line, and almost died. I hate even visiting someone in a hospital!

Been there done that. The only place where I was able to purchase cbd legally was this verified place here https://bit.ly/2AqEi2r Fast shipping, great quality.

@jennie74: That is so odd. CBD is sold at my local health food store. Lazarus has the least expensive quality product. Facebook has several groups focused specifically on CBD with verified vendors.

jennie74, I am surprised about the confiscation of CBD oil, I ordered my first order on line about 3 months ago and it was sent to MO. Do you live in a state where it is banned? If it isn't too personal would you share what state that is. I ordered from CBDistillery, they have a good website which explains the different types of oil, how to use and what many find is an adequate dose. Although I use less than recommended. Also visiting in Mississippi I bought a bottle, it was sold in a "head shop". My sister ordered online and it was sent to Idaho.
