I have had surgery, numerous shots, etc. I have been on pain opiods for 14 yrs. I am looking to find something not only for my pain, depression, not sleeping ,anxiety, etc. I know that most my problems come from my chronic pain and being on pain meds for so long. Can anyone please recommend a CBD oil product and strength for me.
I have been reading all the reviews and I just need someone to help. Thanks Donna, for great share! I use cbd oil every day. I refuse to go without it. I have no arthritic pain at all anymore. I had a hip replacement 3 years ago. I am in need of the other one to be replaced. I was laying awake crying at night because of my hip pain.
After I started using the oil my hip has quit aching. I sometimes forget I even have a problem with it or my arthritis. Had I known about the oil before I had my hip replaced I never would have had the surgery. I am pain free. I use hemp oil. There are 20 mg of cannabiniol in each 1 ml dose https: Does anybody have the same experience as mine? I have chronic Lyme and — as I age — my pain is getting worse. Tried stopping completely and the pain came back with great ferocity.
At this point I think the CBD oil is still expensive, but in the years to come it will become affordable for everybody. I would say that my life made a sweet turn when CBD was introduced to me. Thanks to my far relative. Though the pain is not gone, I can sleep properly and overall feels quite healthy. The best part about CBD is that it does not have any side-effects at least for me unlike the regular medicines.
I can bet on CBD to be the one of best treatment in the future. Anyways, thanks for sharing the information Donna. I need to add this information: I am 74, and had an operation at the t 10 level 4 years ago which has left me with enduring pain, for which I take Percocet.
I also have sciatica, which is getting worse, leading to locomotion difficulties. I cancelled another scheduled lumbar back operation, happily. Unfortunately, I told my physician about this: I had both a urine and blood draw drug screen yesterday, results not back yet.
So, this is my comment:. I have neuropathic pain. I never really knew how much to take. There is so much confusion on dosing, so I just take a dropper full now. Should I take it twice a day, or once? I find it very hard to compare brand to brand.
Thank you for your detailed, informative article. If anyone would care to share how much oil they take daily, I would appreciate it.
I just started using CBD oil about 6 to 8 weeks ago after much research. He said that he used CBD oil when he started getting restless leg syndrome. He would take the oil and put about 2 or 3 dots behind his knee and to his surprise, the tingling went away right away.
I found this hard to believe, but after hearing from some other people on the benefits of CBD, I decided to give it a try. I had to pay 50 dollars for an oz. The first night that I got restless leg syndrome and went into the bathroom and put 3 dots behind my knees on both legs it was only a matter of seconds before I had relief.
I also rubbed some on a couple of sour spots near my back, and it seems to have helped. Im also, in a better mood, I feel more alert and more full of energy. I believe it to be the thing of the future!
I have tried several different CBD products from different US companies, capsules, drops, sprays, even a balm…..
I do hope this will be approved since the one was approved of someone attacking marijuanna supporting opiate pills yet lying on marijuanna to keep rights to their pain pills. The CBD oil businesses are not regulated so who knows what you are getting in the oil or balm! I receive it via mail here in Hawaii.
I use it for sleep, pain and relaxation. Guess I need to experiment some more…. Yesterday and today I am paying the price. I wonder which ones help her the most. How much fish oil does she take? What do the Niacinamide mg non-flush niacin , PQQ pyrroloquinoline quinone do? Thanks for any input. Thanks Pinetree for going into detail.
Details sure do make often quite a difference in success or failure. As cannabis or their derivatives have good muscle relaxing properties for some people, and as one of my clear and gradual improvements directly resulted from techniques to relax my muscles I wonder:. IIRC, some people with ME get improvements in both pain and energy with muscle relaxing meds although in healthy people they are causing excessive sleepiness.
I have a prescription for CBD but anything over 2 ml a day gives me restless legs at night so no sleep. The doctor said I needed to be on at least 3 ml a day. After doing much research, I tried cbd oil and I got terrible headaches from it. I also had the opposite affect and it made me anxious. Any specific brands to recommend? Always willling to try again. I had bad anxiety too when I tried taking a capsule of the lower strength that Healthspan do here in the UK.
It was obviously too much for me. However recently they have just brought out a CBD oil with a dropper and this seemed ok for me but I kept experiencing dizziness. It turned out I had an ear infection developing and needed antibiotics so stopped the CBD oil to see if the dizziness improved. Its only 2 days since stopping it and I am still getting a bit of dizziness in the mornings so it might well not be the CBD oil. I am going to try again when I am off the antibiotics as I have a tendency for severe chronic migraines.
I used to pretty much trip out on it. Eventually the paranoia was overwhelming and continued when not stoned. THC in marijuana can often cause an increase in heart rate too, which is a form of exertion. Your better off getting true tested CBD oil.
Or you could end up feeling worse. The flu like symptoms doubled in intensity. I know though that pure CBD oil does the opposite.
It just takes a little bit to put me out for the night. It was really eerie…. Be aware that Hemp or CBD Oil is not legal to purchase in every state, Alabama being one of them, so check the legality in your state before ordering them, even if the products do not contain THC. Start low and go slow. Liposomal 3 squirts sublingual at night. For Anxiety and brain fog: For Pain and Anxiety: They have completely gone off their regular pain medications within three weeks.
I dug out my CBC oil last night and took just two drops under the tongue, held it there for 10 mins this was just prior to bed in the hopes of some desperately needed sleep.
I know some strains are better for sleep. I have been looking into CBD oil here in Canada, waiting for my prescription to come. My doctor recommended a company that has been regulated for some years. So reading this blog has raised my hopes. After 15 years I figure most things are worth a try. Keeping track of this when you were really struggling is so good, I envy your organization.
Thanks Cort for keeping the information coming on so many varied topics. Do you know what dose the person in their article was taking? Is there are greater benefit with very high doses? Also, what specific benefits of CBDs have been reported by those lucky enough to experience them?
I will have something on how CBD is believed to work in the next blog. There is an endocannabinoid system in the body that is new to discovery but is ancient in us. Similar to how endogenous opioids they we naturally make,the endocannabinoid system helps with pain and mood regulation. It also appears to reduce inflammation. It also helps with sleep. If people sleep better, it helps reduce pain, allows the body to heal more easily and inflammatory messengers are quieted.
I tried a very low dose of medical marajuana first, but the THC in it amped up my tinnitus to screeching level. Under the tongue made me tense and caused intenseleg spasms.
I put it on a banana slice and can handle that dose. I plan to try going higher slowly again. My case was slow onset and short-lived severe episodes for a couple of decades, then being left bedbound about a year ago after an infection. Have the full gamut of symptoms- cognitive, particularly linguistic, insomnia, panic, muscle pain, and weakness to the point of physical collapse. But the last couple of weeks have been amazing.
Left my wheelchair at home for the first time since I got it. My heart rate is 30 beats slower for just about any activity. I was hitting just from standing up. For the last week it takes quite some exertion to get me close to my bpm anaerobic threshold. That Fitbit data is just amazing…. Good luck and please keep us informed. Would you have been a hypothermia or at least low body temperature patient before?
If so, would your body temperature have improved significantly these last 3 weeks? Did you experience a quick improvement jump in muscle relaxation 3 weeks ago? I know this is sort of off topic but I wanted to say that just the plain CBD oil at the right dose is very powerful and beneficial in some cases.
Last week my 6 year old beloved Beagle Snoopy developed horrid seizures. He had 3 in 24 hours. Blood work was perfect but my vet wanted him to have scans and maybe an MRI which would have cost thousands of pounds. I had by then Googled CBD oil for dogs and epilepsy and immediately started him on the lower dose capsule which contains 8 drops, one with his breakfast and one with evening meal. Within 12 hours of the first dose he looked a different dog, more like his old self.
He just had one minor seizure the first full day of the CBD oil. That was a week ago tomorrow and so far so good.
We have back our normal lively Snoopy, nobody would know there is anything wrong with him and I am sort of pleased that I videoed his last attack, otherwise I think I might have dreamt it all. Not at all Pam. That demonstrates the power of this oil when it works. His horrendous seizures stopped. If possible, since Pinetree has tried out many different brands of supplements, could we find out the brands she finally found the most helpful?
I think that would be a great service to the readers. She said she tried the Ubidercarone form of CoQ10 but is that the form she stayed with?
I began having visible hand and arm tremors. I always have internal tremors when overdoing, but these symptoms are different. I know quite a few people who get severe dystonia. A good friend of mine who has been through pure hell with dystonia recommended CBD. Of all the most powerful drugs she has been given the CBD has worked well.
After gradually building up the dose of CBD my tremors have gone away. They only returned when I ran out of my brand and bought a very expensive one from a health food store whose owner said it works for people with MS. It helps with sleeping too. Also, on occasion I will take a small amount for anxiety or a headache. Hopefully, it will continue to work.
I no longer get the terrible internal tremors either. Very surprised by the negative reactions posted here. I can now grow my own CBD and make my own tincture, and there is nothing better for chronic body pain from my point of view. Wishing everyone the best in their pursuit of health. Very surprised and sorry to read about negative effects for some folks. We are especially spoiled here in Humboldt County, CA, with a history of quality products grown and produced here. Going to sound like an advertisement down below, and am not connected to any products.
Even if you are out of state, there is a lot of info on the website: It appears to be an important component in CBD products. No medical insurance covers the cost, so this is all out of pocket. Not an easy expense for a lot of FM sufferers. It is way cheaper for them to drive out to Colorado a few times a year and buy products to bring home or to even purchase it on the street. I also slept for more than seven hours in one night for the first time in months.
I took some about 6 a. I feel less anxious than usual. I went with unflavored, but you can get flavored, too. There is little or no THC, so you will not get stoned or high while using this. Some products will show up in drug tests though, so if that is an issue for you, check with the various manufacturers to make sure you get the correct oil for you. There are a large variety of options out there when it comes to CBD oil. It is a great resource. It does not provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
This content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on this website. I got hemp cbd oil before my state legalized MJ, did not work for me and after expensive, like you, credentialing process, drank tons of the MJ stuff and got cbd salve massages. I got a little fuzzy around the edges but zero pain relief, unfortunately.
This article did a poor job of going into what actually needs to be in an effective product. I have the same issue with migraines, although I believe that daily migraines will cause an early death because they leave lesions on your brain. I have yet to figure out how you are supposed to get this. I have tried CBD oil but found it too expensive at the doses needed for me to get relief. I guess prices are just higher since I am in the Atlanta metro area. That lasts days. I am still hoping for recreational use by federal law which will kick off competition and lower prices.
Then maybe all of us can get the relief we need to live a normal life. I only sleep hours at a time because it is too painful to stay in one place for longer than that. I guess bottom line is — if you can afford the appropriate strength of CBD oil, everyone that I know that uses it has seen relief — some in pain, some muscle relaxation, some PTSD. It has lots of uses!! I like to drive and go to church and I have to still work — none of which I can do with THC in my system.
I function better on opiates, unfortunately, so I am stuck with that for now and at half my old dose because of all of this media hype. I feel the same way I have severe spine and nerve damage in my back from being crushed between a truck and a guardrail and the doctor cut my pain meds in half TOTAL B.
Here is the site I get mine from hempyforcbd. Hope this helps someone. I forgot to tell you how much lol so first it has no fillers just hemp oil the carrier oil, and the Phyto-cannabinoids, and if you want peppermint then peppermint extract or natural then it only has 2 ingredients.
Last a long time!! Once again the website I get it from is http: Hope this helps someone!! You take it twice daily. I buy it from a FB friend at: I love that this is providing relief for so many. Would love to have some of you try our CBD oil tinctures and give some feedback! I have tried CBD oil,and medical marijuana as well,unfortunately,neither work for me.
I wish I could use it. I know that many people get pain relief from it. I am going to try it again. Thats what we warriors do,try,try,and try again!! The marijuana makes me sick,so definately not good for pain relief. Am using the peppermint flavor. I get it through Healthy Hemp online.
Mailed directly to the house. Check out the website Realm of Caring too. I can always tell if I forget to give myself two squirts in the morning! We need more research. Someone to do a double blind test with one group using one and one group using another. But, unless and until the Federal government approves it, no one wants to get involved and little research is possible.
This is so sad for those of us who need pain relief. Because it includes THC — I do get a high feeling and only take it at night. I sleep better, am not as stiff and do not hurt as much when I wake up. After 16 years of taking Flexeril every night to allow my muscles to relax enough to sleep and still having only 6 hrs of disrupted sleeep , I have been able to wean myself off of it. I no longer take pregabalin and am taking a low dose of cannabis oil so I feel that there is a reduction in the amount of drugs I take overall and the accompanying side effects.
I do still take cymbalta again a low dose and am happy to report that there are moments throughout the day where I feel no pain. Is that ever a neat experience; truly amazing. I have some, but have no idea how much to take. I also have MMJ, but had a horrible reaction after I think I took too much and am afraid to try it again. But, the CBD oil I could use. Hi Lindy, Everyone is different so you need to experiment to find what works for you.
The bottle claims to have 80 doses. You will need to play around to see what works best for you. Some people do well with low doses and others need a lot more. Some companies sell sample packs so you can experiment. Best of luck to you and I hope you find some relief!
Here is the link: Lindy, you want to start at taking about 15 mg of CBD once or twice a day and work up to 25 mg. As you start building up tolerance you can increase. Start at 20mg a day for 5 days to see how your body responds.
Carrie, how much do you take? I feel like the dosing is so vague. And twice a day? Three times a day? Hi Lisa, I currently take 3 mg to 5 mg 3 times a day. It works okay but there was a really cold day that I doubled what I normally take.
Dosing is very vague. It is up to each individual to figure out how much works for them. This may help you https: I started with the lowest dose 2x a day and worked my way up. Good luck and I hope you find some relief! Copaiba comes from the resin of the Copifera retoculata, offinalis coriacea, and the langsdorffii.
It is steam distilled and has a Spicy, woody scent. The main chemical component is Caryophllene which works on the CBD2 receptors. This oil can cause skin irritation, applying in a carrier oil will help reduce irritation.
