Has anyone used CBD oil or anything similar for use in relieving Neuropathy?
@gfisher100 Good morning. I have been using some version of topical ointment with CBD oil for several years. Some work better than others. The only type that is very messy is anything with coconut oil. I am experimenting right now with a 3:1 THC to CBD. It is working very well on hands, wrists, and arms. I also use it on my Myofascial knee problem. I was doubtful at first because of the high concentration of THC. My patient counselor said that it has been delivering good results. Any of the medical marijuana products work better than the lidocaine compounds, for me.
I have been using CBD made here from cannabis and am told that it is much better than CBD made from hemp. This CBD contains about 5% THC, not enough to notice. Its relieves the pins/needles feeling in my feet.

Do you have a specific name brand.. it is legal in Alaska so maybe I could find. I do use cannabis also as it helps calm the neuropathy. Thank you for your post.
OK,I give up……. what does CBD stand for ?
any of a group of closely related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. It is the non psychoactive part of the cannabis plant material.
I have been using CBD from hemp for a month. It helps with the burning in my hands. I am 63 yrs old and I have mono Neuritis multiplex. It also works excellent on constipation from my pharma drugs. Àt night I also have 3 puffs of concentrated THC oil which calms the neuropathy and helps me sleep. To strong for daytime use for me. I don't want to be high all day.
My original questions is this CBD oil actually providing any relief of the tingling etc. Is there a particular brand better then another.
I see many commercial products coming on claiming to be better than the other.
Anyone using a specific brand and its total over all effect. Is this used eternally or is taken internally?
@gfisher100, @garydoys. The CBD oil that I am experimenting with at this time is located at the following link. I am using the Releaf Balm 3:1 THC to CBD. https://www.papaandbarkley.com/product/releaf-balm/#
