Has anyone used CBD oil for chronic pain? And do you have results?

Posted by @rensacb, Tue, Jan 22 12:44pm

I'm a chronic pain suffer of 35+ years. Scoliosis is the culprit. Not a disfiguring curve but non the less painfully destructive. Almost every disc is bulging from 3mm to 6mm. I've had 2 spinal fusion. C 3-7 and L 4-5. Have 4 nerve root impengements with spondylosis in some areas and stenosis at interval from neck to sacral. Take steroid shots when I can with positive results for a few weeks. Always have Norco 5mg/325 ready if needed. Unfortunately I have found the best way to keep pain down is to lie down. So most of my days are spent on my bed. Any suggestions?

Basically a few exercises in my bed. I can't get down on the floor 😭 much less get up.

I do use CBD for fibromyalgia–it is a subtle adjunct to OTC meds, needs to be used regularly at first to build up in your body to see if it helps. Good luck!

@rensach I cant either so I do them in my bed. I have a hard mattress . Wish I could soak in a tub miss that but cant.

There is a lot of hype about this currently. I have been a chronic pain patient for a decade now. I have tried both the oil and some ointment which ultimately led me to the conclusion they do not work on me. I have a feeling this result will be quite common for those who have been on opiods and other medications for long periods of time. I have often wondered if the THC is what would be of more benefit but the laws in my State and the contract I have signed with my physician prevent me from investigating it any further.

Thanks for your honesty.

@rensacb I am so sorry to hear of your situation. It is one that I am in, too. I am bedridden due to arthritic knees that give me less pain when laying down, and degenerative disc disease. I also have fibro. I am like you and have less pain when lying down I am glad the shots give you some relief. I am also thinking about CBD oil for the pain and will be very interested in your outcome. Sending prayers your way! ….Karen

I understand completely. Going to start CBD oil today. I'll let you know.

I use a THC/CBD mix when I can find it but lately it is seldom available. I use medical grade oils but since Canada has delisted marijuana in October/18 it is harder to find what I need. I do use a more expensive oil as that is what worked best for me but it’s so frustrating that it is now open to everyone as the producers can’t keep up with the demand. I have been on these oils for over 2 years and now I have to take whatever is available even if it’s not what I really need. Whenever I check (daily) there is absolutely nothing available and the restocking dates are never accurate. Ahhhhh!!!

Hi, I have been using it for my pain . Initially, I have not get any idea that CBD oil can help with pain. I happen to be an assistance for cannabis blogger Julie Ryan. From them, I learnt how it can be used. And I did take advice from my family doctor, They said if i was not taking any prescription medication, then can try it in lower dosage. Yes! I saw a big relief. I guess It will work even for migraines.

I also have chronic back pain after 3 surgeries and some compression fractures over the past 4 years and have spinal stenosis. I have usd CBD oil drops for the past 5 months and have had very good results. Once a level was established and used every 4-5 hours my pain went from 6 to 3. I have had no side effects. The regular medicines I was instructed to decrease was Voltaren for my arthritis and glimepiride. Good luck.

@marychapman Have you tried going overseas ?American states all ojr growing cannabis now Colorado is one Im thinking about

@rensacb I have been using CBD oil sublingual, for about 6 months. I had to get myself in the habit of taking it. I do find there is relief for anxiety, depression, chronic pain from osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia. When I forget, or miss a day, it's easy to tell. As I have not been on opioids cannot tell you the interaction or contraindications. I was very honest with my primary Dr plus my two main specialists, about using it.

@gingerw, what a good way to measure the effectiveness of cannabis…..miss a day. And I am glad you self-disclosed to your providers. Then you become quite the team for true integrated medicene. Congratulations and I hope the relief continues. You are encouraging.
