CBD oil for pain

Posted by timfitz @timfitz, Jul 19, 2016

After trying opiates, and lyrica, and mostly just suffering I tried sublingual CBD which is from the marijuana plant, but has no THC in it, you don’t get high. It was very very effective. Not only did it reduce my pain at least 75%, it has a calming effect on the anxiety produced in those of us with chronic pain by the fact we have it. I do recommend it…. Be sure it is from a reliable source. You don’t need to smoke anything or get high.

…thank you for responding. May I ask what type of treatment or manipulation does your chiropractor do to give you relief, and how often do you go to get relief from a sciatic flare up I know it takes more than once, and how long did relief last…

My mother tried CBD but seems it didn't cope well with here so she stopped taking it

I have done a lot of research on CBD oil for pain and for stopping opiates, as well as experienced it for myself. I just watched a new documentary about how opiates rewire the brain to crave opiates and stop producing dopamine (makes you happy…) unless given opiates. It also breaks apart the structure that allows you to think clearly and damages thought processes.
The scientist were analyzing brains of deceased opiate users and the affect of CBD. The CBD repairs the brain and rewires it to not crave opiates so much and start producing some dopamine without opiates. Since I live in WA, I purchased a large amount of edible CBD oil and vape cartriges. They ranged from 90%CBD and 10%THC to 50/50. First I tried to cold turkey quit from a 35mg dose of Methadone (prescribed for pain by my Doc).
It was a nightmare. After 3 days of not being able to hold down any food or water and sweating, no sleep…I was afraid I could dehydrate and die. I had to taper off over a month period while taking larger and larger amounts of CBD/THC oil. I had tried this before with no success. This time it worked. Although it did require taking up to 6 containers a day with 100mg oil at 90/10 ratio and using the vape pen once an hour. It cost me about $65 a day, but that is a lot cheaper than an opiate habbit that is getting out of control or no longer effective enough for pain. I still take CBD, but in smaller amounts and have been off opiates for 4 months. Also had to exercise, epsom baths, sauna, drink water, eat healthier, yoga, massage…to get my body and brain back in shape and learn to cope with chronic pain in other ways such as CBD/THC oil, yoga, massage, inversion table, light cardio, ibuprofen occasionally, meditation…
Here are a few links showing studies of sucess rates of people reducing or quitting opiates with vs without CBD. 67% more success rate with CBD.

I guess I can't post links as a new member, but it's not hard to google it.

I have the oil and must increase daily dose

Hard to know how much CBD to take because it doesn't make you high. My prescription is 6 grams a day but don't take that much yet.

My experience with terrible stomach pain put me in the hospital for awhile. After having my gallbladder removed years earlier and loads of tests, I had no answer to why I was so sick. After I was home, my doctor suggested a gluten free diet. My tests didn't indicate a gluten issue. I knew that I couldn't have dairy but was unaware that something as simple as bread was hurting me so badly. Without the gluten, my terrible pains are gone. I rarely ever get a bad stomach ache. Definitely nothing like before.

I too was skeptical of the CBD oil, until I tried it. First, I got the bottle with dropper and tried 2 drops under my tongue. Amazingly, in about a half hour the pain in my shoulder had subsided by about 75%. Next day, I decided to try it on a thumb knuckle. Again, in less than a half hour the pain had decreased a whole lot, and most of all the movement in the knuckle was restored with a lot less pain, almost normal. i'm no spokesman for the company, many varieties of CBD are available on Amazon. I would suggest shopping to see what fits your needs and pocket book. The first one I tried works well for me. About $20. P.S. I'm 72 yrs.
