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.

Just checked the web site and there are stores in Kalamazoo that carry it! Thank you!

CBD topical products/brands?

Has anyone tried CBD lotion for their pain? I have upper hamstring tendonitis and major gluteal pain, especially when sitting. I’ve tried just about every treatment and nothing has worked, so I’m wondering about CBD lotion. I can’t take CBD oil because it would interact with a blood thinner that I take, but topical is fine. Appreciate any feedback – and definitely would like specific brands/amounts that have worked. It’s really hard to tell what is a legitimate product when it comes to CBD.

@lgerkin It's smart that you checked first if you could ingest CBD oil. Regarding topical CBD oil, you'll notice that I added your question to a previous discussion related to the topic. I did this so you could connect with members like @suzanne2 @grandmajan @dotmoto @jmb73 @pfbacon @quark @wsh66 @meme2eight @chillywillie @margito that have discussed this topic in the past.

Below I have linked a related topic in the Neuropathy group. Member @lorirenee1 is an active member and has discussed this topic here in the past.

May I ask if you asked your provider about CBD oil suggestions?

@lgerkin I have used Tikiva CBD oil and am extremely pleased with the relief I get and I am assuming their topical cream would be very effective. I have tried the roll on CBD oil and that was very effective on my hand pain.

Thank you! My provider had no suggested on the brand of CBD topical, just mentioned it as something I might want to try.

I’ve found that CBD obtained from companies that also produce THC from cannabis have better quality control due to state rugs on what goes in their products

I'd bet you would get better relief from a product containing the THC. I tried some recently and it was nothing like smoking pot. No paranoia, no munchies but very pleasant. Pain relief? I don't recall having any pain for a very nice 5 hour period and had a great nighta sleep. I used to smoke a lot of pot and I can assure you edibles are far milder and old guys and gals who never smoked pot and probably wouldn't like it would love the gummies I ate. They were home made and illegal.

I recently saw an occupational therapist for hand pain, trigger finger specifically but I get a lot of overuse kind of pain in my hands. In addition to having the splint the finger they told me to do hot and cold bells for my hands. 10 minutes Hot, 2 minutes cold 2 minutes Hot 2 minutes cold 2 minutes hot and that's the end. Hot is 115 to 120 degrees and cold was 50 to 60 degrees. I found this to be very helpful in allowing me to get more time practicing my guitar or remedy the effects of working with a chainsaw. If your hand motion is limited in any way, the occupational therapist is the person to see and I believe Medicare covers it. I never see a bill for physical therapy or occupational therapy. We don't always think about things like this when we're dealing with our pain but I'm really glad I gave it a try. Love & blessings y'all

I have a trigger finger too & it is very painful. What do they do for that?

REPLY

They inject cortisone or a similar substance into the sheath of your tendon of the effected finger. I have the same thing and need to get injections about every 3 years.
