I decided to try CBD oil, not hemp seed oil. I’m buying it online through Beam and chose The One which is 1000 mg no THC. I’ll report back after a week or so of using it.

you have chronic pain...that's on the list.

find another doctor. I can get the name of the one my wife used if you're interested. Not positive but I think she said the doc was in Clifton.

It sounds like some of you use topical, and some use sublingual.

Interesting, our local Whole Foods has some topical stuff now.

My capsules from Bluebird can in yesterday. Started with two tonight and we’ll see how it goes.

Directions say one gel cap up to eight times a day. A bottle of 60 won’t last long.

That is the type of list that makes it sound like a snake oil. Anything that can treat (or claim to treat) Multiple Sclerosis, glaucoma, and and terminal illness? sounds like the old Hadacol

https://www.historynet.com/dudley-leblanc-and-the-hadacol-boogie.htm

I would love to hear CBD can help with even one of those symptoms. Color me skeptical. Anything can can help with terminal illness or ALS just reeks of major BS. I honestly hope I am wrong about that.

I can only assume that many/most of those ailments include some sort of inflammation (don't most things) and CBD has an impact on inflammation, so technically, it would help with anything that involves inflammation.

Also, just because some folks claim that something helps with lots of stuff, doesn't mean that it doesn't help with anything.

Yes it helps, I stopped my Hydrocodone and Soma now for over two weeks since taking it twice a day. In the AM, 4 drops of 90/10 in my coffee, first cup of the day. The 4 drops of 50/50 at night and I'll sleep the night through with no leg pain or cramps. I pretty much stopped all the pain in both knees, both hips and both shoulders. It also stopped the pain on the right side of my head from the cancer surgery then radiation almost a year next month. I did not ease the tightness from the skin and muscles being pulled back into place but that area does not hurt.

Make sure if you try it to get the CBD that has been inspected/tested for purity and is in a sealed box, soft of like cough medicine would be.

Perhaps it's a placebo, but walked by a store yesterday with CBD sampler (spray-on).

Tried some on my lower back, felt better all afternoon.

I have tried 2 (LN & Sup) suggested on this thread. Taste is not terrible, but does nothing for my stress. Still waking up at 2 am and not able to turn off the thoughts. Doubled the dose (of 2-3 drops) of "high potency" and "full spectrum" and no change. No real effects at all TBH. I will try a couple more products before I say this is oil of snake. In my long ago youth I did try the traditional smoke version, knocked me on my rear, lights out rather than a fun party friend. This stuff so far is nowhere even on the same hemisphere. And no, I am not going to light up...older and wiser now.

Stress for me is a moving target. Some days none, others lots, all manifest a few hours after I go to sleep. Thinking more exercise and beer is my true solution.

No incredible transformation yet, but I’m taking half of the amount of Benadryl I was taking. We’ll give it more time and get off the Benadryl all together.

The best CBD!

The drops under the tongue works better than the capsules.

A guy from church has been suffering from fibromyalgia for about 7 years. It took about 3 or 4 years for him to be diagnosed with it. Medications/prescriptions just didn't seem to be helping much. Just about 2 months ago- he mentioned in our small group meeting that he was going to try something different. First thing that came to my mind was CBD oil. He started using it about a month ago. Within 2 days, he noticed a decrease in pain. The fourth day he was essentially pain free. He has gone golfing several times in the past few weeks - something he has not done for years.

It does work and do good for a lot of people. Exactly how, I'm not sure is entirely known.

This would be my concern, not knowing the quality or undesirable ingredients present in the oil bought. Because it's quite unregulated, it seems tricky. I searched and quickly found this article, it's pretty informative:

Totally agree. I think a lot of people get no result because they're actually not getting any CBD in their "CBD" product.

Genuine, quality full spectrum CBD isn't cheap. There's a lot of incentive for makers to chest on it, esp. if they're a fly by night company, which a lot of CBD is.

Needs to be sealed, and the Certificate of Analysis must be provided so you know exactly what you're taking.

The note about getting a sealed and certified product is right exactly. I go to the only licensed and certified shop in LaMesa CA as they are inspected and I am not sure who does that sort of thing, maybe Cheece and Chong, but the CBD oil I bought was in a sealed box and the cap was sealed. They had samples of THC gummies out and the guy behind the counter showed me the bag they were in.

To help with sleeping try using 50/50 CBD/THC as it will relax you more. That is what we use at night and I sleep until the new puppy wakes me up at 5:30 or 6:00 to want to go out side.

From the article:

"To reiterate: CBD oil in not the same as “hemp oil” or “hemp seed oil.” Some companies are manufacturing inferior products by spiking hemp seed oil with a CBD isolate. Such products lack the synergistic array of beneficial components found in full-spectrum CBD-rich oil."

That's the other thing. Most CBD being sold is isolate, not full spectrum.

The 311 CBD oil is full spectrum, lab tested, US made and the detailed test results are on the 311cbd.com webpage. It's the real deal, not the hemp seed junk many places sell.

Also the price for 750mg is very fair, lower actually than most. The nice thing is you don't need to go to a dispensary, it's mailed to you.

311 has been around forever and is legit.

How long were you taking ibu for neck pain?
How long on CBD until neck pain was gone?

Most back pain goes away in 2 weeks.

Placebo effect or actual effect, what’s the difference if users get relief?

Pain is gone, who gives **** why.

Desired result achieved.

I've tried CBD a few times, and could feel it working almost instantly. It was e-cig vapor variety, but I will not be using an e-cig because of reports of respiratory illness. Don't need it now anyway, losing weight alleviates pain.
