    CPinkston - I use CBD Oil and have found it for me to be an effective tool.  It is not a "silver bullet" but one of several things I take and do in attempt to manage my pain.

    CBD oil is mostly used by people for chronic pain. It helps reduce pain, inflammation and other health conditions of the body. I personally used this oil and found very effective. But you can consult your family doctor for its usage and is it good or not for your health. Because I heard it have some side effects also.

  • Yes and if you have access to the real product not the one produced by the hemp plant then the relief can be amazing.

  • I would be getting the real product not the one produced by the hemp plant..thank you

    I do CBD 30:1 THC during the day, and 1:1 at night, sometimes two dropperfulls of the latter. I augment that with additional blends, works well to take the edge off without pain meds (11 days).  If I have an acute flair up I’m going to be happy to have something stronger in my back pocket, but so far so good.

  •  After using dispensary brand cbd oil for months and months I found it did nothing for me other then costing me money. I found the same with the dispensary tincture too. Now that not saying you wont get benefits from it. One of the issues in my state is the dispensary I go to carrys it in only 1 strength so one size fits all were most state mm programs have various strengths. 

       I like that it was brought up that medical grade cbd is different then ones bought online or in your local stores. That needs to be stressed alot. Most store or online is made of Male hemp with a great amount of artificial flavoring. There is no quantity control. Medical grade sold at dispensaries are made from the female marijuana plant.

       As Joel stated his cbd has a hint or so of thc. Thc is a very important piece when we are talking pain control. I have not been afraid to experiment with higher level of thc ..I find it very important for sleep and night time pain control. I found thc is important for nerve pain control. Sorry CBD doesn't help nerve pain atleast not with me...like with all medications we all have different chemistries and different types of pain..as I said cbd does not help my nerve pain..

    Living in California I’m fortunate enough to have many MM options. I’ve found many outlets, 90% gray market and 10% regulated. The regulated dispensaries are very consistent with the product, testing and reliability.  Both daytime 30:1 (CBD:THC) and evening 1:1 (CBD:THC) are female flower and I get the same brand now for 3 months. I think it’s key to MM success to have product you can trust and count on month to month. Yes it is expensive. Right now the tinctures are costing me about $200/month. I consult with an Naturopathic Dr who specializes in MC (she says medical cannibis, not medical marijuana) and when I weaned below a level of opiates where my pain wasn’t controlled well, she said to increase the THC. So the 1:1 CBD:THC is a 5mg:5mg dosage, I find adding some a up to a total of 50mg each at night depending on how bad the pain was, helped me take the edge off. But I really question it’s ability to handle major flare ups. 

    The thing that pisses me off is being encouraged to titrate off pain meds by doctors but insurance doesn’t cover alternative methods for pain relief. Everything (acupuncture, MC, massage, etc) except a small portion of physical therapy is out of pocket expense.  Who makes out then except the insurance companies and the MC dispensary.
