cbd oil info?

Sep 17, 2015 2:17 PM

I am interested in learning more about cbd oil. Is it legal? Where can i get it? What's it cost? Does insurance cover it?

I have had Marino for almost 10 years, if I can answer any of your questions about cbd oil please ask away. Is it legal, depends on where you are, most places are making it legal and all you need it's a prescription from your doctor. Ask your doctor if they can prescribe it and if they can't find one who can. I have found that while it takes a while to start helping it's lasts for hours. Does insurance cover it, sorry but again it sett depends on your insurance, mine does.
I have found if I only take it when I really need it I do not get and while buzz, everyone reacts different so you would have to try it and find how you react to it. Please give more info and I will find out if it's legal where you are, I was an advocate for many years and still try to stay up to date on the info.

Hi SmileMom...I'm very interested in CBD oil...I've done some research but it's hard to know where to get and if it's legal. I live in New Jersey and have fibromyalgia.

I will be posting the info soon sorry for delay.

Posting for Smilemom, I'm a friend of hers and she's really upset about not doing something she said she would. She was flaring the last few days and got much worse yesterday, please forgive her delay but she's in bed, on breakthrough medications plus. If she isn't better by tomorrow I'll update again. Please keep her in your prayers, her pain is normally too high and right now they want her in hospital but as always she won't go. I am sorry if I said too much just worried about her.

My heart is breaking just reading this. I hope she feels better very soon. She's in my thoughts.

Sep 19, 2015 11:15 PM

Praying for SmileMom. What a great friend you are to be by her side and support her while she is in such dire straights. I will keep her in my prayers and continue to check this feed to make certain that she is getting better. Sending her {{{{{Hugs}}}}} to help get her through this flare up. 💕🙏🏻🌻

A quick Google search and you can order cbd oil in several ways, oil, tincture , wax or topical cream. It it legally in all 50 states because they strip the thc out. The thc is the part where the high comes from. Even Amazon has a selection. Do your research and read reviews. Does not seem to need any prescriptions, again because there is no thc. Good luck and stay well all.

I just received my CBD tincture and CBD oil from puresciencelab.com and WOW! I have gone without a panic attack for 5 hours now and my anxiety is so low also I feel pretty relaxed even with my CRPS/RSD pain being so high.

I got the 400mg tincture and the 41% CBD oil (5grams) so it will last at least a month I think.

My husband & I were just discussing This process & product. Mj is legal here & he grew a plant last year. We were thinking of making a tincture from his plant buds for me to take For nerve pain. Nothing seems to work for my pain, so I am open to trying. I would prefer to not have the high, use the CDB oil
Or if we cannot make something that would work, then purchase a tincture. All info shared is much appreciated. Thanks meganblondie.

If you are where it's legal, find a prescribing place - generally not a regular md in most states. They will ask questions about your pains, if you've used before, did it help, etc. Then you get a "card". In my state, this is merely a letter from them stating I can have the legal amount of mmj according to state law. Take this paper and picture id to a selling place.
The places I go to have cbd taffys, oils, and sprays. They all work nicely on pain and anxiety for me.

I have multiple diagnosis and have been reading up on the oil etc. My friend has tried the tea and says it helps but only drink when you don't have to function or right before bedtime.
