CBD oil

wondering if anyone has tried CBD oil to help with pain relief. I’ve been using it for a week, and it has helped significantly with the nerve pain I’m still getting in my leg after lumbar fusion and lumbar decompression surgery. I’ve managed to cut out codeine completely and, in addition to CBD oil, I’m just taking Naproxen. CBD oil also seems to have positive benefits for a whole bunch of medical conditions. There are some useful Facebook groups if you want to do some research. Message me if you need any more info.

    Isn't anti-inflammatories (Naproxen) a no-no after fusion surgery?  I have read that the CBD oil is good for fusion tho

  • Hi andyg
    It's great that you have found some thing that works for you. My husband actually bought me some at a store here in Utah but I have not tried it. I wish Utah would get going on the medical end of marijuana at least.
    Good luck Sherri

    @andyg - I using CBD Oil with positive results.  I've been able to reduce my daily dosage of pain killers.

  • That's great news about CBD oil.  I've only tried it a few times, with no results.  

    I also get overwhelmed by all the choices when at the store.  Would be good to know what is working for others.

  • I use white oil from CBD Brothers - started with 1 drop 3x a day, and now up to 2 drops

    I just bought a bottle from Lazarus Naturals which someone was talking about on tbe Facebook neuropathy group.  They give 40% discount to veterans and also low income (which shows how much markup there must be).  But the bottle comes with very sparse directions - take one ml (50mg) as needed.  But what do i do with it?  Another company's website says hold it under your tongue a minute or 2 and then wash it down. 3 drops?  30 drops?  One says this one says that.  Very confusing.  I'm going to try 3 drops under my tongue.  Here's the post i made on the neuropwthy forum:

    30 drops in 1 ml?  But the directions say start with 5 to 10 mg!  Ml and mg are different units of measurement! Pretty useless directions.  Doesn't say how to take it either - hold under tongue?  Mix with something and drink?  And what's that about grapefruit on the bottle? And on the bottle it says take 1 ml (50 mg) as needed.  50 mg!  That would be 30 drops.  5 mg would be 3 drops then.  Very confusing.  I'm going to try 3 drops and hold it under my tongue for a minute or 2 and then wash it down like the very clear directions for another brand that i just googled up says to do.

    CBD Oil

    Just remember that CBD oil from the male plant is the one  that is legal and can be purchased online, in stores without prescriptions. If I am not mistake, that can not contain more than .0011% THC (which is the psychotic element in cannabis)

    CBD oil from the female plant is NOT legal across the globe. While those oils can contain up to 20% various CBD cannabdiols, they also contain a small level of THC.  This type of CBD oil needs to be purchased with a Medical Marijuana registration card and through an approved dispensary.

    I have my card and last year  tried the CBD oil for  over three months.  I could not really find a dosage that decreased pain any better than my prescription, if at all.  My rheumatologist would immediately dismiss me if he found drugs in my system even though I live in a “marijuana” state.  I know that CBD can work for some people, but you can’t just buy some and expect immediate relief.  I personally feel the Hemp is a waste of money;  only CBD combined with some THC has possibilities.  Keep in mind that every  state and every dispensary has a different version of CBD oil and everyone is different.  A 50/50 combination is what will work best according to specialists in that business.  I don’t know about you,  but that means “stoned” for me.

    I have fibromyalgia and now possible Failed fusion surgery, so I can’t be sure which pain is more severe. I’m sticking with the drugs until I can be sure that something else will work
