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

It is legal for medical use in my state . They have dispensary’s here . If your state has them you would have to find out from them what strain will help that they have on hand . Our dispensary is not reliable to keep same strain stock . Do ask them
OK,I give up……. what does CBD stand for ?
CBD stands for CannaBiDiol one of the components of Terpene resin of cannabis.
I have read about the benefits of CBD oil and want to try it for my neuropathy; however, I am in the education field and am subject to random drug screenings and tests. Online, there are mixed reviews about whether you will fail a drug screening if you are using topical CBD oil. Does anyone have direct experience with this? Have you passed or failed a drug screening after using CBD oil topically? I cannot afford to lose my job for many reasons including that if I lose my job, I lose my health insurance. If I test positive, I am also subject to losing my teaching license (and thus my career). If a physician gives you a prescription for CBD oil (knowing that it does not require a Rx and that it is readily available online), does this protect you legally if you fail a drug test? I am on medication for my ADHD and have to do drug screenings every 3 months in order to continue with my prescription for that with my primary care physician as well. Honestly, because I am not a drug user, I never asked a lot of questions about the screenings and simply jumped through the hoops, but I also wonder if I test positive if they will discontinue that medication as well. So many considerations…..
Personally, I would much rather use CBD oil than other alternatives, but am concerned.
I really think if you have doctors notes prescribing CBD, you cannot get into trouble. There are laws protecting the disabled, as well. I also do not think you would fail a drug test on CBD oils, because you are not ingesting the active part of the hemp plant. I would even talk to your principal and be honest. Also, I have terrific CBD salve and drops I swear by. They save me. If you want to know more, you just order on line. Very reputable. The salve is a godsend. I was a teacher also. Good luck, my friend. Lori Renee
I was very interested in your comments about the salve you are using. I have not had much luck with the ones available at the approved dispensaries here in Mass. Would you mind providing the address/website so that I might take a look.
Hi there, The website I get the salve from is AnandaHemp. I have used a few other salves, and I swear by the one Ananda makes. It is about 25 dollars. It is Spectrum Salve 125, 25g., topical cream. You cannot miss it, because it is the only salve they sell. I have terrible neuropathy in my feet. My toes give me agony, with twisting, burning, stabbing, throbbing….yuck. Anyway, as soon as I put this salve on, my toes get relaxed, and feel normal. This lasts from about 1 to 2 hours, but some people get relief a good part of the day. I just reapply, and sometimes, the pain is not there anymore. No rhyme or reason to my pain. All I know, is this stuff WORKS. Good luck, Lori Renee
My heartfelt thanks for your help.
Arnrob, No problem. I hope the salve works for you, as everyone is different. But I think its worth a try. Anything to help us cope with horrific pain is worth trying. I am glad to pass on something that may alleviate your suffering….Lori Renee
CBD stands for cannabidiol
After hours of scrupulous on line research, I bought two CBD products that you order on line. They are over the counter, non marijuana products, just coming from the hemp plant, but terrific for pain. The one I swear by is from the AnandaHemp company, and is a salve you rub directly on what hurts. They sell only one salve, called spectrum salve 125. I have excruciating ball of foot and toe pain at times, and the salve takes it away for at least an hour, sometimes a half day or so. Then it can be reapplied. The other product is from another company, and they just won an award. This product is liquid and you put it in a dropper and place a dropper full under your tongue. It is utterly relaxing and distances you from pain, without the high of marijuana. I don't think you sense pain when you take it. It is from the CBD Distillery and it is called CBDrop, 1000 mg., full spectrum oil. There are two 1000 mg. supplements to choose from, but mine is about 5 dollars more than the other one, because it contains a touch of what marijuana comes from. If I am in bad shape, I take the drops and the salve, but the salve utterly gives me back my feet. Just so good. Anyway, I did hours of on line research to discover these, and please give them a try….good luck. Lori Renee
