Cbd oil

Mar 17, 2018 5:12 PM

I’m trying to find out the truth about cbd oil and whether it is any good for PTSD I asked my gp and he just laughed

Mar 17, 2018 5:53 PM

how would it help for ptsd?

Mar 17, 2018 7:39 PM

Stress / anxiety I would think!

Many of the companies will give you a money back guarantee.

If I understand the pharmacology correctly it works as an anxiolytec. On top of pain relief and nausea control. I would try it if I could afford it. I can't take any of the GabAlin affecting meds, I have CM and they cause uncontrollable angina

I just started trying cbd oil, I haven’t seen a huge difference but I do find that it relaxes me a bit. Don’t order online! I did that first and got just hemp oil for $50, which did nothing! I ended up talking to my pharmacist and he suggested going to one of our local vape shops who carry different strengths. So I went and bought the 2000 mg strength. I take 3 drops under my tongue 2-3 times a day. I paid about $70 but I can definitely tell that this is the real stuff vs. what I bought online. I don’t vape( never have) or smoke anymore so I really didn’t want to start inhaling anything else. They told me I could use it under my tongue and get the same effect and there happened to be another older customer there getting it too and he said it works really well for back pain, so that made me feel a bit better about spending so much on it since money is so tight right now. I have had chronic pain, anxiety, bipolar depression, and ptsd. Hope this helps.

Everyone who uses marijuana reacts to it differently. For me personally pure cbd does not touch the pain but can calm down muscle spasms. I mostly use a mixture of thc and cbd. I'm not sure if cbd would help with PTSD because it dosent have any phsycoactive effects but I'll look into it today and get back a little later. I know thc can help with PTSD but you have to find the right strains for you. If you are using a tincture you have to find the right brand tincture for you. And keep in mind everyone reacts to it differently. My friend had anxiety and she kept saying it would get so much worse with marijuana. I helped her find and try different strains and now it really helps her anxiety. So sometimes it's a matter of trial and error. You can message me with any questions you have. I work in the marijuana industry(don't worry I would never try to sell anyone anything, that's not how the company I work for works). If I don't know the answer to something I can always ask around.

Well I’m at my pain clinic appointment now and hopefully this oil doesn’t show up on the urinalysis lol. It’s not supposed to have thc in it, so it shouldn’t...but still makes me nervous. 😟

Wow 2000 mg I never heard of that! I tried stratos cbd 15:1 tablets and they do nothing!
I also tried dixie dew drops vanilla synergy cbd 50mg and 50mg thc and they seem to calm me down but I still have pain! I would like to know where to get the 2000mg and what brand is it and what brands and strength everyone else is using for pain!

Mar 21, 2018 3:15 PM

I typed that in wrong it’s 1000 mg. Name on it is cbd Genesis vape oil but you don’t have to vape it. I use 3 drops under my tongue.

Where do you live ChristineMSwain?

Mar 21, 2018 3:17 PM

I live in Colorado

Mar 21, 2018 3:17 PM

The vape store I went to carries up to 2000 mg but I thought I’d start at the 1000 first and go from there

Mar 21, 2018 3:18 PM

Tennessee, not a legal state for thc containing products unfortunately...hopefully soon though!!

Mar 21, 2018 3:21 PM

It is sad I spend my money on crap that I want to take my pain away and it only helps to a certain extent!

Mar 21, 2018 3:45 PM

Well with you living in Colorado couldn’t you get the real thing instead of the oils? I’m on so many prescriptions right now and I would probably be able to come most, if not off all of them if I could just use a stinking plant lol. It’s all about the money and big pharma. I just keep hoping and praying that it will become legal here at least medicinal if not just legal period. With dui type of laws just like they have for alcohol or any other kind of drugs. Could you just imagine how many people in the jails/prison systems that we wouldn’t have to pay taxes to house anymore? I understand the “war on drugs” but I don’t consider mj to or in that classification. It’s an herb for Pete’s sake!! Sorry, rant over🤪😂

Mar 21, 2018 3:52 PM

I totally understand paying for stuff that barely takes the edge off of your pain. I’m right there with ya!

Mar 21, 2018 4:25 PM

To get medical card it is like 90 bucks to see the dr. I have been doing research! I have also been getting my documents together from several mri so they know I really have pain! Lol I will make an appointment and see what happens! But it is all trial and error to find what is right! And the money part is expensive!
