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.

I’m not sure if it’s been mentioned, but you can take a few drops of the oil and apply it topically to the site of pain. I use a homemade cream on my neck pain (occipital nerve) to calm it down. I can no longer take the internally if it has a higher thc ratio as it triggers seizures. It is believed that it isn’t absorbed systemically if it is applied to the skin- which means it won’t get you high, but I’m not sure I would trust it enough to pass a drug test just in case. It’s not going to ever be a miracle “cure” either internally or externally, but it does seem to work WAY more effectively than any other cream I’ve purchased over the counter.

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.

Is there a secret to vape pens? I have never used one before and I'm not sure that I am getting it to work correctly.

Most work like this. Lightly push the button 5 times in rapid succession to turn it on or off. Tap it twice to pre-heat it. It will flash until it is ready to go. Then hold down the button while you inhale. turn it off when you are done. If you are new to THC or to vape pens go slow, start easy or you will get too high and be frightened. That happened to me and I smoked pot for 40 years. Most pens have three setting described as 3 different voltages. Start with the lowest one. I've seen a pen with a twist button on one end to adjust the strength. I've seen another that after you turn it on, you tap the button 3 times to change the setting. The light color then changes. You repeat the three taps to increase it again and 3 more taps will bring you back to the low setting. Green, low, blue medium, red, blow your brains out. Your pen should have come in a box with these instructions. good luck

It's thought that CBD oil might help ease chronic pain in part by reducing inflammation. In addition, CBD oil is said to promote sounder sleep and, in turn, treat sleep disruption commonly experienced by people with chronic pain.

I haven’t been on this site for awhile. I have had 3 back surgeries and 3 compression fractures within the past 3 years. I have had moderate chronic pain in my lower back. I started using CBD last Sept. I use the tincture but don’t hold it under my tongue very long. The rule is start low and go slow. I started at 1 dropper (0.8 ml) of 1000m/30 ml strength. Increase no more often than weekly. I take mine, currently about 50 mg per dose every 4 hours while awake. It took awhile but my pain decreased by 50%. People quit early but need to keep increasing the dose for relief. I’m a retired hospice nurse and volunteer once a week and golf twice a week. Not great but much better. I did get my MM license but have not been able to find a product concentrated enough and would have to drink a half bottle. Good luck. – Margit

No I actually have a pump inserted in my belly with a catheter that runs up my spine leaking tiny amounts of Dilaudid directly onto the nerves. I get between 4 and 5 mg per 24 hours and that has the effect of taking orally 1200 to 1500 mg of Dilaudid which is enough To Kill A Band full of junkies if you actually put that much in your body. My pump still works very well three years, another two years I'll have to have it replaced. I did not respond well to the spine stimulator to the pain Folks at mhealth decided I should have the pump the only inconvenience is going down there every 3 months to have the old medication removed and the new medication put in. There is no better solution than the pump.I
