cbd+ thc

Posted by peggyn @peggyn, Fri, Nov 1 4:16pm

I have different pain, back, hip and neuropathy at times. And Just achy all over, authorits . Ijhave taken cbd before, but not sure I could tell a difference. Somewhere I read CBD with THC is the best for all over pain. That the CBD is not near as effective without the THC.
We went to Colorado on a rv trip and I decided to get the cbd +thc tincture. .
I told them why I was there and I wanted a tincture for pain and not a high. I think it is 10 to 1, but not sure. They said you cannot get high. It actually has medical on the bottle. I don't know how much to take because I,m a little scared.I'm not in pain as much, just tired and achy.
I want to make a cream with a bottle of this, If I do and put it on , it has some thc, will that show up, I mean with a blood test or something?? My friend has a very bad shoulder , but works at a place that she could tested, and I would like to see if this could help.
Any suggestions or advice?????

@peggyn It seems that CBD with or without THC is a very personal thing, as far as it working or not. I am going to tag @artscaping here, and ask that she respond. She has a wealth of information!

I tried the premixed .8CBDto .1THC- it was not as effective for my pain as .7CBD & .2THC which I mix myself. I was told that the THC will help the pain when mixed with the CBD. I have Sjogrens, osteo arthritis, fibromyalgia, neuropathy in my feet, severe degenerative joints in my thumbs, arthritis that has attacked my nerve in my neck causing a constant headache, maybe RA and need a hip replacement. So I am in pain a lot. Unfortunately, I have a low IgM- a low immune system. I had Gamma brain surgery last Jan. and got an infection at the pin site that took 9 months to heal. CBD & THC have really helped me.

Thanks for your reply.. Have you ever made a topical with your cbd tincture? I have a tincture that is cbd+thc 15:1. I know it is not very strong, but I would like to make a topical if possible.

@peggyn, @gingerw, Good afternoon. I am glad that you are ready to try some cannabis options as a topical. I just listened to a podcast by a CA clinician who is excited about the new growing options that are taking place right now. There will be new dosages and product mixes coming down the pike that will be even more beneficial.

Although not what we hope for, it does appear that some research is having an effect on growing decisions and product development. So the envelope is being pushed…and $$$$ for research are starting to appear.

I have only tried making a tincture work as a topical once when I couldn't get the topical balm I had been using (and still use at this point). The assistant at the dispensary walked me through what I needed to do and I gave it a good try. First of all, it was very messy. Secondly, I found it easier to put the cream or balm on my body and then rub the tincture in. And the other impact is that of the THC in relationship to the CBD.

Remember that THC increases or enhances some of the sensory realms. Music sounds better, art is prettier, tastes may be stronger. So…when we get to the pain sensors….we are liable to find that our pain is heightened. A 3:1 CBD/THC balm will be just perfect for me…and my small fiber neuropathy (SFN) issues in hands and feet. I did try a 1:3 CBD/THC balm and it made the pain worse.

So….although it seems like a no-brainer….as in just mix some up and you're all set. That's not happening yet and there are too many variables of consistency, ingredient ratios, and product additives as well as processing for me to try it.

Have you been unable to find a topical that works for you? And has your friend with the shoulder pain found any relief from topicals? I don't know about the testing issue. Unless you know what is being tested, for what purpose as well as the regulation rules in the state, It wouldn't be something I would choose to try. I think we need to abide by the laws of the state in which we live and work to change them.

There will be changes for the better…….and I am saying this on November 4, 2019. Be safe and protected today. Chris

I hope you get better, I suffer from chronic pain as well and just purchased a CBD roll on for the very first time and I am hoping it helps. I asked the same questions of it showing up in a drug test. I was told chances are slim, however it may or may not. 😃

@olivia22819, Good evening. Chronic pain……makes finding joy in life very difficult. So let's cut to the chase. I have a CBD roll on. I was hoping it would be a great solution. It is not great but acts about like a lidocaine compound. That means a temporary effort for some instant relief. Does yours have camphor and menthol? Where along the ingredient hierarchy do you find organic cannabis Sativa or some other cannabis strain? If it is at the end then it is the least amount of any product. The can says maximum dose at 200mg CBD. I would only ask how much is in one roll?

I think the delivery system is unqiue in today's market. And I gladly put it on my hands when nothing else is around. Just know that this is not a 3-4 hour solution with some good quality relief. Please tell me I am wrong and it is working very well for you. I would love to hear that coming back at me. Be safe and protected from both inner and outer harm. Chris

and it is 200 mg

@olivia22819, Good news…it is working. And the ingredients appear to be the same. Remember that 200 mg is the entire contents of a full bottle….not the dosage amount. Does your bottle have the numbers 324 printed vertically along the bottle? Let’s see if we can match these up. I am very enthusiastic about your experience. Is it possible for you to measure the amount of time a roll lasts for you? Everyone is different. And don’t forget, what is good for the goose may not be good for the gander. That’s an old one. Be well & happy today. Chris

Great. If you have Brand or name anywhere on the container please let me know. And, @olivia22819, I am glad you are considering trying other products. My gold standard is a tincture 2:1 CBD/THC. You can start low and move up when needed. Find joy today. Chris
