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

I have been recently diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy. I have burning pain on the bottom of my feet and heel pain. I'm interested in your CBD type and dosage – can you share this information?
Hi, I do take CBD oil, however truthfully I find it rather ineffective. I trust the health benefits claims around reducing inflammation etc but I don’t see any real benefits, especially with pain. This is with pure CBD oil with a very low concentration of THC at 0.07%. I have also tried Indica CBD oil with 25mg/ml total THC – the highest concentration of THC you can get to aid with sleep and pain but again this does very little for me. Gabapentin helps me sleep so I can at least forget about the pain for awhile (400mg) at night but does next to nothing for pain control in the waking hours. I have yet to find the magic lotion, potion, cream, pill, food, exercise, routine or anything that actually helps. Good luck to you. Please share if you come across something that works. Take care

I've used it for Small Fiber Poly-Peripheral Neuropathy. My SFN problem started 12 years ago so I have a huge toolbox to help me. I've used CBD for some other aches and pain related to neuropathy and some of the balms do give relief. Others in the house have used it on muscle aches and say it's very effective. However, all CBD Oils are not the same. There is a online site Calle http://www.leafly.com they are for all things cannabis plant. You can do some research there, and there was a recent article listing the CBD oil claims by companies versus actual CBD percentages in the oil.

Hi. I've been taking CBD oil for the past year or so. I order mine from a supplier called Spectrum Cannabis. It's a 40 ml bottle, which contains less than 1.0 mg/ml THC; 20.0 mg/ml CBD. I usually take 0.4 ml 3 times per day. I find it effective in reducing the pain to a manageable level.
Wow that amazes me that a low strength CBD would be effective. Great. My sublingual CBD is either 1000mg or 1500mg.
Goodmorning @demonsleeve, Thank you for your post with a reference to Leafy. It is a good resource. You are also so correct that there are a plethora of CBD options and the lack of legality nationwide leads to inadequate or no regulation of growing and production practices for many products with potential for quality of life improvement.
I am using a 1 ml dosage of 1:1 CBD/THD 3 or 4 times a day. It just makes pain and discomfort manageable. Life is more enjoyable and I can contribute to my own quality of life in a non-threatening way. I have both chronic myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) and small fiber neuropathy (SFPN).
May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering.

What brand of 1:1 CBD do you take?
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.
Interesting, they never tell ya first
@terrydclaar, Thanks for responding to my ongoing experimental research with medical cannabis. My opinions are just that, my opinions. One other variable is availability of stock. And I am always evaluating product for consistent performance especially with different bases and delivery systems.
Consistent: Care By Design
When in stock: Dr. Ram
Worth a look: P&B
Be free of suffering.
Does anyone have experience using CBD oil or gel pills for their condition(s)?
Hi @sjhedcon, You'll notice that I moved your message to this existing discussion about CBD oil for Neuropathy. I did this so that you can meet others who have tried and/or use CBD as a treatment option for neuropathy. Click VIEW & REPLY to read through past posts.

Why CBD oil over pain pills? I have small fiber peripheral nephropathy (SFPN) in my feet and the pain is really, really bad. I take pain pills that work great and they are cheap. I pay less than $10 a month. I tried CBD oil a couple of times and it seemed to work but it was expensive. I paid $70 for 4 or 5 ounces. I figured I would need multiple bottles a month. The SFPN forced me to "retire" early and my disposable income is way less than it used to be. So for financial reasons I take the pain pills.

@fredjan2016 Hi there.You are preaching to the choir here. I totally agree with you 100% and am in your boat. The only thing that separates the 2 approaches, for me, is the natural products vs. man made. I've always used the comparison of eating off the dollar menu at McDonalds and still getting full verses a fancy meal at an expensive high quality restaurant.
Thanks for your reply. What medication do you take? Did the Cbd oil help you ? Thanks for any info
For me, sublingual CBD is an adjunctive medication with Tramadol and Lyrica for severe Neuropathy/plantar fasciitis and arthritis. For intense burning of feet, ankles and lower leg, I find that CBD ointment, like Mitchell's or Lazarus, acts quickly and effectively–does not help with deeper pain. I also find that the sublingual CBD has a mild calming effect that helps me handle the pain. My doctors agree that I should replace CBD with medical marijuana, but I tried it a few times about 50 years ago and found I liked it too much. I do not have problems following instructions with any pain meds, but fear that I might with MJ. I have tried stronger pain medications for short periods. I am sticking with Tramadol, because I want to be clear headed. Do your homework on brands, quality, types. CBD is very expensive, but often has discount coupons. Personally, I found that a large, well known and high quality CBD manufacturer that heavily discount for veterans and disabled or senior citizens–Lazarus brand.
