Anyone using PEA - PEA vs CBD vs THC

May 29, 2018 11:26 AM

If you've used Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) as pain relief I'd love to hear your thoughts. I read this:
https://palmitoylethanolamideblog.com/pea-vs-thc-vs-cbd-one/
I'm
fabulously curious and intrigued. I'll say now that I am not against any form of pain relief with medical merit but believe in finding the best fit for a patient's symptoms + morals + pharmacogenic suitability. I don't respond as expected to the standard treatments for pain (and other problems) so finding this could be a game changer.

Please chime in whether you have used it or just have a comment on the linked info. Thank you

Read your link. Have not used PEA or CBD. Peaked my interest on the PEA until I saw other sites where there selling this stuff like many other of the gimmicks you see for this or that on the internet. Won’t be reputable enough until I see different reputable tests or it being RX by physicians. Otherwise it’s like any other random OTC preparation that boasts its miraculous properties! Lol But none the less an interesting read.

Painwarrior, there are lots of studies. I bought some and actually think it is helping. Only time will tell. Freaked out a bit when a trip upstairs and down again didn't faze me....until I realized it didn't faze me. For 28 months I have to practically crawl up and down was slow...unless I tripped. Granted, I'm not running bleacher laps but I do see some improvement even after a few days. I'll comment again once I've taken it for a while.
