Posted by gfisher100 @gfisher100, Jun 2, 2018

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

I’ve been experimenting with both CBD oil and ointments, which help temporarily in my back, hips and legs. Also I find that putting a half a dropper of CBD oil under my tongue at night really helps me sleep soundly. I’m a maniac about sleep because fatigue is probably, second only to pain, the most debilitating effect of PN and my other neuromuscular problems.
A final point…if you are experimenting with CBD just be sure you source really high quality CBD or any supplements. Otherwise you won’t get the full benefits of them.

In Palm Springs Ca at a local dispensary. Can’t remember the name but can track it down if you want it.

Thanks for the reply. I haven't seen any mention of the ointment before. As I am not a fan of swallowing medicine, this interested me as I will rub on medicine.

Yes, I have been using it for about 4 months. It does seem to give me some relief. The attacks I get in the evening don't seem as intense. I take it orally a squirt under the tongue in the morning and at night. Perhaps the topical is better I just have not tried that…..Here in St Louis MO. The Post Dispatch paper had adds for stem cell treatments for various problems and one day they ran the add for peripheral neuropathy. I showed it to my doctor and he was going to consult another doctor that might be familiar with that area but so far I have not heard back. Does anyone know about this ? Thanks Jerry

my friend has neuropathy and did stem cell treatment with no success, he told me he spent a lot of money on the treatment, its too bad it did not work. Good luck to you.

My best advice is that there is currently no known cure for neuropathy and managing symptoms is the best we can do. I will always regret the fact that I was not warned prior to undergoing chemo-therapy. Had I known the risk I would never have taken chemo in the first place.

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!

Have you tried Pure Hemp Botanicals, a Colorado based supplier of Hemp based CBD? I would be interested if you found relief since you are new to having PN. I had it start 10 years ago and after trying Gabapentin for a couple months could not stand the side effects and it didn't cure anything, just slightly helped the pain but no reduction of occurances of symptoms. Doctors just said that is all he can do. So I just started with Pure Hemp Botanicals tincture and interested if anyone else has found their products of use. I believe they help me some, again not a cure, just make days better then they are without it.

I have been doing some CBC oil on really bad days . I don’t know if I.m doing it right do you take it only when you burn real bad or do yo pretty much take it everyday. I,m thinking we might need to take it on a regular time frame for it to work . Some people say they don’t have pain anymore so do they take it everyday. How do you do it?…

I also wonder if it has to be in your system continually to have maximum effect. I have been trying tincture sublingually pretty much just when I feel body tending toward symptom onset. Seems to help some, but only for awhile. I would worry about having to take it daily if it seems to be building to higher levels and then what other side effects does this perhaps bring on.

I have read somewhere that this person took it 2 times a day and said the did not have any pain. I have been doing that for several days along with lyrcia. I had a really bad day a couple of days ago while doing this, but I’m going to keep doing this and pray it helps

I agree there is no known cure. People try everything in desperation. But the end result is the same.
