These are one of the most popular (and effective) choices for arthritis and other forms of localized pain and inflammation. Since the skin acts as an excellent semi-permeable membrane that “let’s the good stuff and keeps the bad stuff out,” rubbing CBD-infused creams into the affected area has proved to be quite effective in terms of both pain and inflammation reduction.
Once you’ve determined how many milligrams of CBD you need, you can determine how many drops you need of any given brand/product. We normally recommend that you take the recommended “SERVING SIZE” on the label of the bottle for a beginning indication as to how much you should take. These “food supplement” labels are required by the FDA and really make some sense as they do also apply to CBD Drops. You may also wish to use the CBD Dosage chart to find out how many milligrams of CBD you could try. Then, do the math to determine how many CBD Oil Drops equate to the number of milligrams you need. Then, take the appropriate number of drops. It is not as involved as it may sound.
Locsta....I share your pain of degenerative and bulging disk disease, along with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and arthritis. Absolutely no energy and chronic pain all day, every day. I'm curious as to what type and brand of the CBD oil you are taking and for how long have you been using it? I've been researching CBD oil for months and am quite confused!
I really love Soul CBD! I had never looked at CBD before for my anxiety but was drawn to it from the research I did and hearing Angie talk about it so much. It’s my first brand and will be the ONLY brand I use. I wondered if it was a really working when I started with 500mg and kept using it. Then I got two confirmations for me. 1) I can fly calmly again! I used to get heavy anxiety when I flew and I took this prior to a cross country trip and not a speck of anxiety creeped up. However, my favorite confirmation was when I took it after being on a trip and forgetting my anti depressants. When I forget them, I get the worst withdrawal symptoms, from feeling like I was in a tunnel to dizziness and nausea. I reached for my Soul CBD (not thinking it would help but hey I had nothing else to try) and the symptoms were CUT IN HALF! I worked with my doctor (this is a MUST) and I went from 2 pills a day to 1 pill every other day as we are weening me off of them. Thanks to Soul CBD I don’t need to put harsh chemicals into my body with crazy side effects. I literally tear up every time I take it, I was against medication from the beginning and now I have proof that I don’t need it to help me!!! Thank you Soul CBD, customer for life!!!!
I have/had ovarian/primary peritoneal cancer. I used thc/cbd oil pills I self made from the start. I am supposedly their “poster child”. I went thru with chemo and surgery. Oh that horror! But when I tried to tell two seperate doctors, the surgeon was all about it, and my oncologist threw a fit and said it was an anecdote. There are more than 100 studies at the NIH govt website.
I have idiopathic peripheral neuropathy ... the only thing they found that would work is lyrica. I picked up some CBD oil yesterday morning. I am prescribed to take 75 mg of lyrica 3x per day. I took one yesterday morning and have only used the CBD oil since. I bought the Koi brand, flavored, 250 MG. I used a full dropper yesterday late morning and a full dropper yesterday late afternoon. I used it once today (one full dropper) and I am amazingly pain free.
I suffer from Fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, osteoporosis, arthritis, and 66 yeas of wear and tear. I was overwhelmed by the endless varieties of hemp oil even after reading all the product info, so I chose to go with Amazon’s pick.this has a subtle mint flavor and within 2days, I was seeing a reduction in pain, better mood, and improvements in my brain fog. They have a loyal customer now. Even the headache I have had for 6 months since being put on Gabapentin is gone which means I no longer take Advil like tic tacs!
As soon as my anxiety rose to a point where I needed something to help ease it, I knew I did not want to turn to typical drug store/pill solutions. Thinking about possible negative side effects and not knowing what exactly I would be putting in my body scares me, I prefer trying holistic remedies for health issues. I immediately bought Soul CBD (…and guys, the lemon lime tastes AMAZING) and easily integrated it into my morning routine. The results… (drum roll pls) my entire mindset, mood, body, and feelings were elevated throughout the day and I no longer felt the effects of anxiety. Hello calmness!! Not only does Soul CBD help reduce my anxiety significantly, I also have had positive results when taking it to help sleep better and ease bad headaches. I trust not only the brand, but Angie Lee with the highest grade products available to purchase. Thank you so much for helping heal me!
Generalized pain, for instance, has dozens upon dozens of high profile research and clinical studies that have been carried out in universities and laboratories around the globe. One of the most well-publicized of these studies took place back in 2008, in which results determined that “cannabinoid analgesics (pain relievers) have generally been well tolerated in clinical trials … with acceptable adverse event profiles (meaning acceptable effectiveness for practical use).
Hi, I had ovarian cancer stage 2 and went to do chemotherapy for 16 times in 2014. It came back last year 2016 but I did not do chemotherapy or radiation therapy as suggested by the doctor. I am taking hormone therapy at the moment. I would like to use cannabis oil but which one and how much CBD and how much THC should I take for ovarian cancer? Can anyone give some idea?. Thank you very much.
I have severe neuropathy in both feet and legs. I just got the CBD oil and I am interested in learning if anyone out there has had any success with this. I know each case and pain levels are different. Just would like to see some positive remarks from people who suffer with it. I am not looking for a cure just need an update on someone who took and it helped. I already know there is no cure. I need help with the pain. Thank you.
In short, the results of the survey (which were published in the Journal of Pain Research) showed that roughly 42% and 46% (respectively) of participants claimed they were able to use cannabis in place of traditional medical to effectively treat their specific medical ailment. So if you’re wondering how to know if you need CBD for pain, remember that you’re certainly not alone.
However, switching to CBD oil from a conventional medication is far from a random stab in the dark. In fact, there was a large scale (and very well-documented) survey carried out less than two years ago that looked at precisely what percentage of patients were able to “swap” their side effect-inducing meds for a 100% natural, cannabis-based therapy.
Did you get an answer for this? I have the exact same scenario. I'm treating my TN with Tegretol, and recently tried CBD. I think I took too much and there are some weird drug interactions with Tegretol and I felt quite stoned....was alone and talking to myself in my head thinking I was Einstein. It freaked me out a bit but I think I took too much. I'm trying lower doses again as recently my TN seems to be resisting the meds, although I have had a lot of emotional stress, which seems to be a trigger. Thanks!! Anna
