Welcome Cherbear! I'm in the USA, and don't know anything about the oils and such. But be patient because there are lots of others who use non-medicinal treatments. I'm allergic to most rx pain meds so I don't use anything for pain but Tylenol arthritis and tramadol, gabapentin, and muscle relaxers if needed. I've learned to supplement with D3, & magnesium from other community members, as well as relaxation & stretches. I hope you can find ways to help you cope! Hugs love & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌸
CBD is a cannaboloid resin/oil-based compound derived from marijuana. It can help relieve the symptoms of chronic / long-term pain and help reduce anxiety levels. From what I know, it is only available in N America. There are synthetic equivalents. DO NOT USE THESE, THEY ARE UNTESTED AND ARE PROVING TO BE DANGEROUS.
I just moved from Seattle and found that the CBD products help me a ton. More specifically they are dervied from different cannabis strains, which helps give variety and makes it easier to pin poin specific symptoms as well. It is only in the legalized states as well as canada. Just moved to IN and strictly bc of the lack of progress the doctors have made in my 13yrs of dealing I'm already looking to go back. Also, from experience CBD products have very little or none of the active THC in them so if you're looking for a high, not the way to go.
