Has anyone used CBD oil or anything similar for use in relieving Neuropathy?

Everyone is different. I used high strength CBD oil (1000mg?dropper) for 2-3 weeks. No benefit at all. I'm 84yo so that my have something to do with that.
Anactotally one doctor wrote that CBD effective in early stags of PN but not advanced like mine. read the label carefully. Some product has 900mg CBD per dropper and I saw one that had only three/dropper. How about that for a rip-off?
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.

Where can I order it?
CBD oil MUST have some THC to be so
Somewhat effective. I use the highest combo I can find which is available at dispensaries only. It is Care by Design which has 150% each CBD/THC.
The main thing with CBD that you need to research is the Absorption rate and the bio availability. You have to remember that your body is made of more than 60% water and let's be real, (CBD) OIL and water do not mix so in most cases you are getting less than 6% absorption and bio availability for 3-4 hours. I have been using a product for about 90 days mainly for Plantar Fasciitis that has studies showing over 90% absorption and has a bio availability of 12 hours. Not only does it reduces the pain immensely, it also helps with sleep and anxiety.
I have a friend who's kid takes it for severe adhd and it has made a night and day difference
The main thing is MAKE sure you are getting a HIGH quality product. Unless you normally buy sushi from a gas station
You are so right. THC must be present to activate the CBD component and to lift your spirits a bit. I have been using Care by Design for more than a year now. I use a 2:1 CBD/THC formula to begin my day. I don’t know what 150% CBD/THC means. Sometimes I add a dropper to my coffee and sometimes I just use it as a tincture after having something in my tummy. I find that It works really well at bedtime taken sublingually to ensure a comfortable sleep. Be safe, be well, and please enjoy your pain free moments.
I did. useless. However, I'm 84 years old with 30 yrs PN. Read somethere its more effective for people who have only had few years of PN. You have to read labels and make sure you are getting the right dose. No one can tell you how much to take. Start slow and build up from there
What exactly are you using? What form and how much? And exactly where did you buy it (phone # please).thx
Maximum strength cream Lidocaine for topical is 5%. For me: completely useless
@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/#
I’m so glad to find this post. I am experiencing extreme burning in my feet from ideopathic peripheral neuropathy! I am very reluctant to start Gabapentin, as my PCP has prescribed. I live in Colorado so I can easily get CDB cream! Can you suggest a name brand and what exactly I should be asking for? Thank you so much!
Useless for me. My pain doctor just started me on drug called Buprenorphine. It's a low-grade narcotic. It's a patch that lasts a week. I have had neuropathy for 30 years, have tried different meds with decreasing results until 2 weeks I could only walk 15 feet without pain. The neat thing about this patch is that you put it on your skin where there is no hair (upper chest or arm) and it lasts for one week. You can shower with it. The downside is that it's expensive, but fortunately my insurance covered it. It is what's called "Transdermal". It migrates through your skin, goes directly into your blood stream. If you took regular narcotic You would have take much higher dose because it's absorbed in your stomach and is diluted there. I just started this yesterday. It has given me great relief. I'm on the minimum dose (5 mcg/hour). My pain was so I had it even if sitting down. The mcg dose has cut my pain 50-70%. When I see the doc next week I will ask if we can increase the dose. The stuff is really a miracle for me
