CBD oil for pain
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 ordered some CBD, it has not arrived yet and I am looking forward to trying it. I will post and let everyone know after I try it as too how it works.
It’s probably a bit different here than in the US. If you want to try cannabis in any form for your health condition you need your doctor to sign some fancy government paperwork. It then goes to Health Canada and if you are approved, you receive a license to purchase. You then take that license to a dispensary (they are popping up all over in bigger cities!) and you get a list of the different types available. Some are more suited to appetite stimulation, sleep etc. Some are better suited for pain management. You can get either buds for vaping, or oil. The oil is more suited for pain but you are not limited to only that. It is a strange experience to walk into a store that has a whole lot of weed in it! The oil here is made strictly from the flowers. The thc and CBD in the manufactured oils purchased from a licensed dispensery in Canada are much much higher than the CBD oil that is “legal” in all 50 states. An example: Hybrid Blue oil, THC 9.7mg/ml CBD 14.2mg/ml.
ok I am a little confused, are you say that the CBD sold in Canada is stronger than that sold in the USA ? And are you saying that the CBD you get there has THC in it? I thought if you got the CBD here in the US it doesn’t have any THC in it. I don’t want any THC in it and if it has it, then I have to rethink using the CBD. thank you for the information, if you could just clarify those few things for me.. also can US citizen order CBD from Canada?
I am Canadian. The CBD oil that is legal in all states is almost THC free (0.3% is all that is allowed in pot free states). The catch is that CBD and THC work best together. I think you bought exactly what you were looking for, if you want no THC. The legalized Cannabis oil sold from Canadian dispensaries are much stronger than the CBD oil you can purchase without a prescription online. It’s unfortunate that there is so much research one has to put in just to get pain relief. It really is insane and I often feel that it is confusing. You almost need a PhD just to make the pain stop! There really haven’t been many long term or thorough studies done on medicinal marijuana so we are all kind of grasping at straws. I think what worries me about non-regulated things like the oil you buy on line is that you really don’t know if it has anything beneficial in it. There is no guarantee. Supplements bother me just as much. Talking to your physician is definitely the thing to do before adding anything new to your treatment. I know you know that though. 🙂 I’m looking forward to hearing how it worked for you! I have tried the dispensery CBD oil and I have yet to find anything that comes close.
Must get o.k.from a doc that will issue you a license to buy for one year. Take that to the shops and discuss with them which product would me most helpful for you. You can smoke, eat or sublingual tintures.
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!
