CBD oil ????

Jul 15, 2018 10:47 AM

Does anyone know about cbd oil and if it works? I was wondering I’ve been seeing it on Pinterest a lot🤔🤔🤔

cannabis oil is the only oil that has a real effect on pain

In my opinion that is but it’s worth a go to see if it dose help you

Thank you I’ve been unsure what to do I can’t take some scripts cuz of work and I’ve taken so much otc meds that I’m not going to have a stomach or liver... do you have to have a script for it or can it me bought otc

You can order CBD oil online. There is no script required and it is legal in every state in the US because it has no THC in it. I would spend the time reading reviews and start with the smallest amount you can try or go with a company that has a money back guarantee in case it does not work for you. Amazon has hundreds of people selling it. I have a family member that uses it for her knee pain and various muscle aches. I will ask her what brand she is using and get back to you. She gas tried others but this seems to be the right one for her.

Thank LMB, I just need something to help, I hate the idea of prescription drugs

This is the brand she uses. She has tried 3 others but says this has been the best for her.

I am starting my CBD oil journey today. Research your laws it is NOT legal in all states. The quality can be different so if its cheap it may not work. You get what you pay for.

Thanks LMB I was also thinking of trying the CBD oil

So researching CBD oil in Missouri, it's not legal, but you can have the oil but only if you have sesures. So using it for Fibromyalgia is out legally speaking.

I stand corrected as of April this year some states made CBD oil illegal. Before as long as it had less than 0.3%THC it was legal. I would still try to order the worst that they can say is no. Just keep quiet about it to friends with loose lips. Definitely do not go with the cheapest brand quality does matter. The brand I posted is not very expensive but the quality is very good. I believe you can obtain it on amazon.

I’ve tried it but I felt like it increased my fatigue - has anyone else had that result? Also, it’s hard to know how much to take as the research I’ve seen involved pretty high doses. Where I live it’s legal but could be VERY expensive if you were taking a lot of it. I’m back to gabapentin along with a low dose tricyclic (imipramine) which is mildly helpful. I’m also using a herbal tea with tulsi and turmeric which I think has been really helpful. Because my pain naturally varies (dramatically) its always hard to know what’s working and what’s not!!☹️

I just ordered some CBD oil & I can't wait to try it! The kind I ordered doesn't have THC in it. I'm gonna try it for 2 months & see if there is any change. I bought an gummy vitamin & a body lotion version of it. I also bought an extra lotion for my older sister's TMJ (poor girl can't even eat anything but liquids & mush).

Hopefully it works! It was kinda expensive :/

I use the CBD candies and they are really the only thing that can help with the pain, my mom gets it at a convenience store down the street, and if you are afraid it might mess with your meds then just ask you doctor if its okay

I just recently begun to experiment with CBD and THC. I’ve been having better days thankfully to the THC edibles and having a full six hours of sleep. I’ve tried different ones and some do not work and others gave me headaches so make sure you research anything you take and do it in the comfort of your home. Also the ones I’ve purchased aren’t high on the THC so u aren’t stoned which I prefer but do the trick on pain and fatigue.

I use infinitecbd products.
Helps sleep n the lotion is helpful
500 mg vape for relaxation-Charlottes web or harlequin terepens $$$

I have been trying the CBD oil and it has not worked for me.

Aug 13, 2018 11:52 AM

everyone is different but it does reduce pain for me. i try to only use it when it gets bad because it can be a little expensive depending on the strength but it’s brought me from an 8 to a 3 before

CBD can be from weed or hemp. The hemp is what is legal. I use it in a dropper form for under my tongue. It helps some issues but not all. Hemp that is. Make sure no chemicals are used to distill it.

I have been using CBD oil topically for arthritis joint pain in my fingers, knees, shoulder and upper back. For me it takes the inflammation and pain away in about 15 - 20 minutes. After Fentanyl and Norco did nothing for joint pain I was amazed at how well this has worked for me.

The only cbd oil that helps me is one that has a 1:1 of cbd-thc. The ones I vape are 300mg 1:1, so one cartridge has about 30 puffs so that's 30 10mg puffs. A little goes a long way with the stronger ones. Cheek out your states website to see where you can get a script.
Shoot me a message of you have any questions☺
