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 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.

Understand this. It may take a while for you to learn to tolerate THC. There are two basic kinds, indica and sativa. Find out which one you've been taking and try the other one. Don't smoke it that's crazy. Take it in a vape pen but turn the vape pen to the lower of the three settings and take a tiny little puff and wait. The thing that fools a lot of people with the vape pen is that as you take the puff and I mean a puff not a long inhale, as you take the pup you taste nothing, and on the Excel with the lowest setting you'll probably see nothing. So before you give up on marijuana try that I don't know if it'll help you but I've never heard of anyone who got sick every time they took it. I've heard of getting sick because you took too much or more specifically you took too much too fast and I've heard of people getting sick the first couple of times they use it but this is stuff that generally passes. You got to believe good luck love and blessings

Thank you. I may not have realized how much I was getting and it takes more time than I thought. I will be patient.

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

You can always try the CBD derived from Hemp that you can buy at many stores around town. This CBD does not have any active THC products as so low in dose it’s legal to purchase without have state issued card to purchase THC based CBD. It comes in an ointment to apply to affected area.
Good luck.

I am really confused on cbd oil.. Do you take it everyday weather you are in pain at the time or not?? Do you take it morning or evening?
What I really would like to know is do you have to take it for several days or weeks to get it built up in your body or can you expect relief after taking it right away..I think I've been maybe not taking enough because I'm not sure when you should get relief>>
If you have any knowledge on this please share>>

Sounds like this is something you've already started for your pain, but you are not getting the results you anticipated? Will you share about how much/when you've taken it thus far?

I suffer from depression and use zoloft.depression usually comes with anxiety. THC induce panic attacks for me. But cbd oil with 0,03% thc gives me the opposite effect it clears my mind and brain fog while calming and relaxin and improve sleep quality. I continue on both zoloft and cbd oIL because it eliminates my anxiety completely.

@lisalucier @peggyn @maryshipley Hello everyone. I began about 2-3 weeks ago on CBD pure oil purchased from my regular drugstore. The dosage is 20ml of oil under the tongue for 1 minute and then swallow. You can take it when you need it. I have been taking it twice a day. I follow up with a hot caffeinated drink The oil is different from the tincture. I have some tincture. I also have some CBD sparkling water drinks which contain 10ml. They are handy if you are not at home.CBD does not make me feel drowsy or high.It soothes pain in a subtle gentle way. I haven't been on for a year because Ihave been so very ill. The headache that i discussed last year did not go away.No medicine worked and the pain began to spread throughout my body, anyway that is another post and i just wanted to mention that the stunning thing about CBD oilis that after 19 years on heavy doses of insulin, My body appears to be able to use my own insulin again. It happened suddenly, so if you are a diabetic, caution is very important, you will have to watch your glucose very carefully.

@peggyn If you have chronic pain it is helpful to use it everyday. I told my internist about it and put it on my list of meds.You do not have to build it up. Used correctly it begins working in 15 minutes.It is important to use it correctly and the oil seems the best.It is pure hemp oil from an American farm that i am using. It is only sold at drugstores. You need to know what you are using the same way you would look for any supplement and check the source. Pure Hemp oil tastes yucky, I wouldn't mix it with food I mix it with a teaspoon or two of fruit juice. Food would slow down the response time. I mistyped the dose in my other post: i purchased a 1000ml bottle of pure hemp oil and you use one dropper full which supplies 20 mg of oil. That is a dose.I paid $140, but 1000ml lasts a long time. If you are diabetic watch your glucose carefully. Drink plenty of fluids.Tell your regular doctor that you are using it. This is a a natural substance ,comparable to using aspirin or turmeric. Don't expect a sudden jolt of pain relief. It offers a subtle, gentle soothing of pain when used correctly. I have no information of how it would affect a type 1 diabetic. I am a type II. Any type 1 diabetic needs to speak with their doctor before using this.

Can you take CBD oil if you are also taking a cholesterol lowering drug like lipitor?

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.

It is federally legal but left up to the states. Idaho and Mississippi are the only two holdouts, I believe.
