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.

Will this help with pain and anxiety during the day and sleep at night? How is this different from regular CBD? What potincy is the CBD from hemp? Any and all information appreciated.

You wan to get the Indica…..I use the Indica tincture mix for sleep and pain…..during the day I use just CBD tincture, if there is a latge % of any THC in it I can't tolerate it…..Indica is calming and staiva is more for depression…..I tired an equal amount of THC and he CBD oil but that was not for me. Those at the dispensary say that smoking the cannabis effects the pain the fastest. I tried it one day and really did not want to smoke it again…the tincture's are the best for me even the Indica edibles worked well for sleep and pain. And, although it's medical , insurance does not cover it and it is very expensive especially when trying to find out what works best. It's a cash business, no credit or debit cards, strictly cash.

I also would like to hear a professional's opinion.
Stevia or Indigo for pain during the day (fribromyalgia & chronic pain syndrome) how much and how often.
Which to take at night (sleep disorder) and how much?
My doctors here are fine with me getting my card but have absolutely no clue as how to use it.

I also have fibromyalgia and the indica tincture at night works wonders……I take half of the dropper , if I wake and feel any pain I will take a little more…..the CBD 100 % tincutre is normally during the day, I take 2 sprays and I'm good but I still use the CBD spray on my knee..You really have to try different amounts and just like pres. meds you have to see what works for you.

Hello, I am new to this site and look forward to a long and healthy relationship with the group. In reading some of the posts, I see where some of you have tried CBD and with very good results. I read a long article on it last night and it said it is legal in all 50 states. I would love to try it but I want to be sure that it comes from a reliable source, Can anyone tell me where I can get this product. I have chronic pain from back issues, abdominal hernias ( many repairs ) severe IBS, arthritis in back, legs, hips, both shoulders, and both hands. Right now I look 7 months pregnant due to numerous abdominal hernias. I am also borderline diabetic and take metformin with good results. thanks for reading my post. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

I find it confusing when people use the term CBD oil. Do they mean from hemp or marijuana? I am using hemp which I have heard is more effective. I started with 500 but now am at 750 , 10 drops twice a day. Calming, helpfup for pain.

I'm scared to death of it – I had a very bad reaction (vertigo, blinding headache, fever blisters) when I tried marijuana in the 1970's; it happened again when I tried hash; I was on the floor for 2 hours scared that I was dying. People have told me that this new CBD stuff doesn't have THC but I don't know whether it was the THC or something else that made me so ill. Peggy

That's too bad . My cardiologist's daughter is on medical cannabis for headaches. But, like prescription meds everyone reacts differently. I have had a headache for quite a while but it's Tinnitus , another problem that many seniors face, no cure and they haven'e a clue how it starts. Tinnitus comes and goes. Ugh !

I hoped that using a small amount of thc would help me with pain and I could take less pain meds. I can’t tolerate it at all. Even small amounts make me very dizzy and nauseated.

I was hoping that might be the answer but I get so sick that it’s worse than the pain. My CRPS affects my equilibrium and I get off balance anyway. I tried gummies, oil with a vape pen and the old fashioned way.
