CBD oil for pain

Posted by @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.

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.

Thank you for getting back to me and getting me straight on that. I got my bottle of CBD oil, the directions are to take a full dropper under the tongue and leave for 60 to 90 seconds, swallow the remaining. Ok I tasted it and I can’t think of anything to compare it to, lets just say it tasted terrible and I knew there was no way I could put that oil under my tongue, leave it there and swallow what;s left. Just no way, no no way, absolutely not, no way. lol ( funny but true) I also understand you can also put it in food. So okay, all I needed to do was find something to put it in, very simple right ? Well, I thought so too. It seems oil especially GREEN oil, doesn’t like to be mixed with food of any kind what so ever. Then I tried it with Vanilla pudding, I put the oil in a little hole in the pudding, put the pudding with the oil in my mouth and took another bite real fast then took a big drink of soda and low and behold it went down without any problems. So now how is it working for me? I am not sure yet, maybe after a few more pudding cups and I’ll know but I do think it helped my pain a little but certainly nothing to compare to what I’ve heard others were experiencing, do you think it was the pudding? teehee. What else can I try? any ideas? and how can I go about getting the CBD you get in Canada ? Maybe next time I order I will try to smoke it. Maybe that will work better…. Anything that you or anyone else can suggest would be very appreciated.. thanks

I have purchased hemp cream for arthritic hands and hemp oil for migraine
from CW Botanicals. I also bought hemp hearts (like chia seeds, but more
protein) from another US company. While legal, there is no guarantee that
you will pass an employer drug test while using any or all of these
products. Trace amounts of THC may show up in your system.
Keep that in mind if your job or doctor/pain clinic/pain contract requires
random drug tests, either urine or hair types. It can be a risk.

I’m happy for you! You will find a way

Is there any “ointment” marijuana? Something that you can rub on affected areas and not have to eat or smoke it?

Yes. CW Botanicals offers a cream that is dispensed in tiny, measured amounts for use on the skin where there is pain. It is good for arthritis. It comes in a container the size of lip balm and costs about $50. But the doses are tiny, so it probably ladts about a month. You can call the Colorado company and talk to them. They are online. There is a miniscule amount of THC so it is considered hemp and available in all states. But they can’t guarantee you won’t test positive on a drug test, if that is a work concern. Good luck!

I’m not sure where to post this in the thread so I am going to just carry on here. 🙂

When I have used the term CBD oil in any of my above posts, I am talking about actual medical marijuana – prescribed by a physician, dispensed from a company licensed by the government. In Canada there are currently 2 forms that have been approved for use- either bud, or oil. You either vape it (bud form) or drop under your tongue (oil form) or cook with it. It is not produced from industrial hemp, it is produced by marijuana plants.
I don’t want to confuse anyone. The form of CBD oil that you can purchase online in all US states is not the same product. It is made from industrial hemp plants. That’s not saying that it won’t work. But it isn’t the same thing actual medical marijuana.
As with any supplement, you really should be discussing it’s use with your physicians. I am wary of it personally because in most cases it is not produced in the US. Is there a way to tell if the product you are purchasing is what they say it is? Is there testing? Do they have a regulatory body that ensures product safety, or at the very least can confirm that there is CBD present in the oil? I have seen far too many people fall into emptying wallets for miracle products that are more harmful than helpful.
Be careful. Talk to your physician. Make sure you know what you are getting. I wish you all success in finding relief. 🙂

Here in MN, marijuana oil without THC (CBD only) is available by prescription from licensed dispensaries around the state. Only certain medical conditions qualify, and chronic pain was just added to that approved list. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to find a physician who has gone through the bureaucratic steps necessary to prescribe the oil. It is a major hindrance to obtaining the oil, and dispensaries are charging inflated prices just to stay in business. Why is the medical community so hesitant to get behind medical marijuana? I don’t see liability as an issue because of the lack of THC. Medical marijuana may work for some and not others, but that is no different than with other medications. Does anyone have suggestions for convincing our doctors to get certified to prescribe? I am afraid to take the oil I bought from CW Botanicals because I could be kicked out of my pain program if I test positive for THC; it would be in violation of my pain contract.

I cannot comment on an individual dr’s hesitancy to prescribe it, but realistically it is still a Schedule 1 drug. Until that changes, I think many people with shy away. Just a few weeks ago a Canadian was barred from ever entering the United States because he was asked if he had ever smoked Marijuana. It seems ludicrous that in many places you can serve a longer sentence for possessing marijuana than you would serve for crimes against a person, but the law is the law. Decriminalization would be a positive step forward. I can’t imagine the pressure a Dr would feeling trying to decide if they should go through the process of obtaining the right to prescribe. They may feel it is a good choice for some patients but it would mean that they are placing themselves under massive scrutiny. It’s a big deal.

I found doctors in Edina, Minneapolis, St Paul, and Moorhead for prescribing and a dispensary in St Cloud.

My provider disagrees with your statement about THC. They claim that a mixture of THC and CBD works better than singly. I use equal amounts of THC and CBD with great results.
