Sun, Feb 17 4:20pm · Has anyone used CBD oil for chronic pain? And do you have results? in Chronic Pain

As an RN I did alot of research before starting CBD. In regards to other meds there are some to be taken with caution. These meds include: diabetic (CBD loweres blood sugar), most anti depressants, anti anxiety, diclofenac, tetracycline, inderal, coumadin, grapefruit. It doesn’t say to NOT take these but monitor more closely as CBD can affect ones metabolism. Personally I have not had a problem with several of these that I take. This includes steroids.

.. I take 25mg CBD every 4-5 hours while awake. Whatever your dose keep the same dose a week before increasing. ** If you take an oral med for diabetes you may have to cut back on your current dose. CBD can decrease your bloid sugar somewhat. I eat small meals and had 2 episodes of hypoglycemia when I skipped lunch.

I’m so glad you found some relief from your severe pain. It shows that a smal dose discourages those who just try for awhile with no satisfaction. Too many are afraid of higher doses.

When I hear it does not work for arthritic pain I am guess that your dose is not high enough or it’s not taken frequently enough. It does take experimentation. They suggest increasing the dose after a one week trial of each strength. It took me at least a month. I think people are too cautious. Increase by at least 25% each time. This is how it’s done in hospice nursing of which I’ve been for 39 years. Also it needs much more than once a day. I found good relief taking 3 dropper fulls every 4 hours while awake. Please keep trying.

They all say “start low and go slow.” This means gradually increase the dose. For moderate pain I read trying 20 mg. I’m currently on 25 mg every 4 hours while awake. Change dose after a trial of one week. It took me a month to feel a differencce. They intentionally make the labels hard to figure out.

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.
