Has anyone used CBD oil or anything similar for use in relieving Neuropathy?
I have severe neuropathic pain toes to knees and hands. I began on gabapentin, then my doctor tried tried several adjunctive medicines. Gabapentin, no matter the doses, did no more that make me tired. We tried Cymbalta in a similar manner, but I was have memory problems. I tried another medication that really reduced pain, but again side effects. After years of podiatrist, family doctor, neurologists and pain specialist, I found acceptable relief with Lyrica and a mild prescription pain reliever. Now, I have good days, bad days, good hours and bad ones, but I am tolerating the pain. I know that maximising Lyrica dosage or changing to an opioid pain reliever could give more relief and more side effects. My plantar fasciitis and neuropathy required many trials until I found what works best for me. Gabapentin seems to be the got-to first medication because of minimal side effects and low price, but it is not necessarily the best for you.

Can you tell me how to reach this person and order?
Hi,. You know, it appears that @sarah_leanne only posted that one time back in 2018. I'm not sure how you could contact that person, I am guessing you may not be able to. @colleenyoung or @johnbishop would know the answer to that. Good luck with tracking down this product. Best, Hank
@kimgibson1 and @jesfactsmon — The profile page for @sarah_leanne shows the member joined in 2018, made the one post and has not posted since. They are also not following any discussions and are not receiving any notifications. I suspect that they posted for personal gain and were trying to make money off of someone else's pain….but that's a personal observation.
I believe @artscaping is very knowledgeable on CBD products and safe ordering. I would recommend contacting a local compounding pharmacist who can help with what is safe and legal in your state.
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 small fiber neuropathy?
I only use cannabis oil from reputable dispensaries authorized by my state to sell the product. This way I'm assured what the contents of the CBD oil contains and does not contain. Both CBD and THC compliment each other so having a little THC is a plus in my book. I've been a pot head since my youth and I no longer reach a point that I'm "high" from THC but the CBD is doing a fantastic job of helping me to control my back and leg pain.

Glad it helps .Too pricey for me
.. Everything is so expensive
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.
How do you use cannibus. Cream or
I realize this is a rather late response to an old post but it might help dckuke or someone else who’s having both PN and plantar fasciitis. I see a reflexologist once or twice a week and she really works hard on my feet… Ouch! But it really helps. I gimp in and walk out. She’s been doing reflexology for years so if you see one find one with experience.
Thanks, will give it a try.
My husband has the same thing, painful pn and plantar fasciitis and arthritis. He gets acupuncture along with Gabapentin, smallest dose of doxipene at night and tramadol for really bad days after he walks several miles. Also used topical creams several times a day along with percussive therapy.
You have it backwards. Hemp plants contain much more CBD than cannabis plants and CBD obtained from Hemp from what I’ve read is better for pain relief. I use an product from Ilera Healthcare that is CBD:THC 10:1 and I just increased it to 3 times a day from once and I’ve noticed an increased in my pain control, reducing my PRN oxycodone to 3x day from 4x day.
