CBG (not just CBD) oil for Neuropathy

Posted by elenal @elenal, Mar 27 5:31pm

I have idiopathic small fiber neuropathy and have used CBD oil sublingually and topically with some success. However, what really made a difference for my nerve pain and reduced it very significantly was CBG oil recommended by a CBD store salesperson, who shared with me that some of his customers found it more effective for nerve pain vs. CBD. CBG oil (the "mother" of CBD) has been scientifically researched and found to target nerve pain and inflammation. It is usually sold in combination with CBD such as CBD:CBG 2:1. Since it's THC free, I take fairly large doses and haven't had any side effects from using it. Has anyone else tried CBG oil for nerve pain and what was your experience like?

This looks interesting. I will look for more posts in the future.

I have never used non medical dispensary under state regulations..neither has my partner. I fear non regulated "stores" and sales folk. I follow my medical cannabis doctor recommended uses and methodology. I urge others to do the same. If folks get a placebo effect from whatever is sold at vape shop style cbd stores, I say that is good for them. Buyer beware. Hth

Be careful using CBD, it interacts with some other medications. Non-regulated stores and most of their uninformed staff can't answer a question you need to discuss with your doctor. My doctor recommends avoiding supplements because they are not regulated, there is no way for a consumer to know what's in them.

CBD reduces the effectiveness of Trileptal and increases the effectiveness of Lamictal, my 2 seizure drugs. Seizure drugs ae often used for neuropathy, gabapentin is one of them.

Also, avoid THC products with a high CBD content until you know how it will affect your other meds.

Great information! I had to stop medical cannabis use as per mayo transplant direction. My partner still uses it in a home made topical lotion with great results as always. Always follow dr advice. Great bottom line information and thanks.
