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?

I need more information too, but am not sure enough research has been done to answer my question. I take half a .5 mg dose of clonazepam (Klonipin) at bedtime. A doctor had me start taking it at a very stressful time in my life. It's a small dose, but I can't get off it now, nor can several of my friends who are nurses. The more I taper down, the worse the withdrawal problems get. I have heart palps each day, and have stopped trying to get off the clonazepam because tapering off makes my heart problems worse and I can't sleep. Not good for someone in my seventies. My doctor says it's such a small dose that I should just keep taking it. But clonazepam is sedating. And friends of mine with arthritis say that CBD oil, when rubbed on sore joints makes them sleep very soundly. So that must be sedating too. One pharmacist warned me not to use both, since it could cause serious problems.

I have a lot of arthritis. My neck and knees are the worst. I also have hip bursitis if I don't sleep on my back all the time. I'm allergic to almost all antibiotics, so my rheumatologist says I probably won't ever be able to have knee replacements. My heart palps and antibiotic allergies are the reasons. The day may come when I have bone on bone arthritis in my knees, and I'll need something like CBD oil.

Does anyone know where I can find research on whether people can safely use small amounts of CBD oil if taking Clonazepam?
CBD seems to be quite helpful. Thanks

Have you tried Kratom? I was on opiates for years due to degenerative disc issues. Then boom, no more. I was NOT paying for rehab, for methadone, for money grubbing counselors that have a huge recidivism rate because they just don't get it. Kratom allowed me to withdraw with minor annoyance and discomfort. I now feel SO PROUD that I did it myself, with the help of a natural plant that the FDA is trying to hard to ban. Pharmaceutical companies, rehab centers, all will lose customers if people begin to take charge of their lives THEMSELVES. Facebook has about 8 different Kraton groups that are closed, meaning private from everyone but the group. You can join one and learn so much about taking control of your pain.

Kratom relieves pain, period. CBD oil does help, but not enough. I am a wimp about chronic pain!

Can Kratom be used if one is on blood thinners and pressure meds?

I tried it for my back it worked for a while than it seemed not to. Be sure she is getting a good quality. Some are not to good.

Tried it on max dose in liquid and pills but had no help from it. A bit expensive at max dose. A friend of mine has had good results due to artheritis but I did not. Just depends, I guess.

I too have disc problems and use Vicodin and an anti-inflammatory (diclofenac/misoprostol) which works but I can not depend on it; bad weather, stress (magnesium) or just a bad stressful day, Epidurals have helped the most and listening to my body = losing weight, stretching.

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.

@lesaboo I have had numerous shots for hip bursitis. Some have been wonderful and some not. I recently fractured my femur and the orthopedic trauma doctor I saw said it’s always iffy, it has to hit the right spot.
I was overweight for a while and tried a different doctor after being frustrated by THREE different doctors not consistently hitting the spot, if at all. The new doctor asked me if the other doctors had used a longer needle. He very tactufully said that patients with a little extra padding need to have a longer needle. Sure enough, he hit it. I went to him a number of times and he consistently hit it. The bursitis was good for a few years but recurred recently in both hips. I went to my regular local ortho and she got it in one hip but not in the other. After the required wait I went once again to my “bull shot” doctor in Boston. I don’t really have that extra padding anymore but he definitely did hit it again even though I had to lie on my back, not my side, due to the painful femur. He said it was the first time he had to give that shot to a patient lying on her back.

Yes, I had a reverse shoulder replacement and my surgeon suggested I continue using CBD after the surgery. It helps relax your muscles to some degree and usually helps me sleep better. However, it is not regulated and one never truly knows if you are getting the dosage on the label. I noticed I had to keep increasing the amount I use, but I don’t know if it was because it was weaker than advertised or if it was performing like opioids in that more is needed as time goes by! While it is helpful yet expensive try to order from a reliable source. I find the best prices through Groupon, yet is it the actual stated strength? Yet when I first began using it, I purchased from a local store thinking it might be more reliable yet it also seemed to differ from the stated strength! Just beware and tests different sources until you feel there is consistency in the strength!

I have osteoarthritis of the knees. I tried the oral CBD and it did not work. For the person with the back pain, did you try the topical or oral?
