'm a retired Marine, after spending 20 years in uniform, romping and stomping all over the globe. Unfortunately, it left me with osteoarthritis in all of my main joints. I was max'ing out my pain meds and didn't want to have to get doped up with strong narcotics, so I needed to do something. After taking CBD oil for 2 weeks I noticed a difference and after 2 months I've been able to cut my pain meds in half. As I continue to adjust the dosage of CBD, I'm hoping to cut back further on the pain meds or get off them completely.
I know choosing the right product is a bit tricky as you have hemp oil or CBD oil (containing real CBD) and you have Hempseed oil which might still be very rich in goodness but contain about zero CBD. It means it has a very different effect. I learned the hard way when I received the bottle. It says you have more than 200 mg hempseed oil per serving... while product with CBD would tell you the actual dose per serving which is around 16-20mg... so I am not arguing about the quality of the product just saying I was buying CBD to calm joint pains and I end up with a product rich in Omega’s but with zero CBD. Needless to say that I have tried but got zero result. Missleading in my opinion
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'll be 58 on my next birthday and I've worked with my hands most of my life. I love playing guitar but arthritis and latching in my fingers make it difficult to play. I've always just played through the pain and now have found something that has greatly reduced the amount of pain I have. My mobility has increased greatly, not to say I'm playing any better but I sure do feel better when I am playing. BIG shout out to Fab!
The dosages mentioned do not take into account the strength of the tincture. I have Elixinol 300, I took 1/2 dropper (0.5ml, which offers 5mg of CBD) as indicated on the bottle and felt severely nauseous for 3 hours thereafter. There is no way I cold take this dose twice per day, as recommended on the bottle. The high dosages on this site must surely be for much weaker concentrations?
Industrial Hemp Oil is also from the Cannabis Sativa plant and is the same as Hemp Oil or Hemp Seed OIl. Compared to cannabis Indica, cannabis Sativa (industrial hemp variety) has a much stronger fiber. This fiber can be used in anything from rope and blankets to paper. Marijuana fiber has a low tensile strength and will break or shred easily, making it a poor fibrous plant when compared to industrial hemp. Industrial hemp has low THC levels compared to marijuana specifically cultivated for personal psychoactive use. The reason for the low THC content in hemp is that most THC is formed in resin glands on the buds and flowers of the female cannabis plant. Industrial hemp is not cultivated to produce buds, and therefore lacks the primary component that forms the marijuana high. Furthermore, industrial hemp has higher concentrations of a chemical called Cannabidiol (C B D). 

To be clear, there is no one specific test, scan, or anything else of the sort that you can do to determine whether or not you need CBD oil for pain. Also, since cannabis is not yet recognized by the FDA, you unfortunately can’t really go to your doctor either and have them recommend it; until marijuana is FDA-approved, it cannot be prescribed by physicians.

Stephanie, generally, I have patients take 20 to 150mg a day for sleep +/- anxiety. Start low and go slow. Know the dosages of your product. Usually 2/3 to 3/4 of the daily dose is 1-2 hours before bedtime, and the other portion is upon waking (to improve wakefulness during the day). Other factors such as stress, hormone replacement, other meds & medical conditions, etc. play a role along with individual differences. I own a compounding pharmacy, so we see a lot of unique needs. I can't give more specific advice in this forum, but there is help!

Hi Marilyn, I would recommend a topical lotion or salve to start for instant relief.. Maybe 250 to 300 mg tincture to see how you feel. For me, the salve took the pain in my hands away in under a minute. I didn't notice how much the tincture worked until I forgot to take on vacation. Pain that was pretty much gone but came back, I was tired, grumpy and felt horrible. It works, just need to find right product and dosage for you.

Pros: This item is organic and produced in the USA. The appearance of the oil is very much like extra virgin olive oil, as it should be. It has a green shade indicating that it is full spectrum and unrefined. Nature’s Blueprint also added natural peppermint to make it more palatable. I think it tastes fine straight from the dropper, but it can also be added to a smoothie of some sort or maybe hot tea? I appreciate that it has a clear label for the supplement facts and dosing. If you ever buy something that doesn’t, I certainly wouldn’t take it.
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.
Since it started becoming popular roughly two years or so ago, the general consensus has always been that since CBD oil from top brands does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC, it is therefore legal. Unfortunately, its legality is much more nuanced because of conflicting federal laws and new court cases. What is clear is that in one of the most recent court decisions on the topic, Hemp Industries Assoc. v. DEA, which came out on April 30, 2018, the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit found that Section 7606 of the 2014 US Farm Bill (the “Farm Bill”) preempts the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), the federal law which designates marijuana as a Schedule I substance (along with heroin and cocaine) making it illegal to possess or use. This means that when there is conflict between the CSA and the Farm Bill, the Farm Bill wins out.
However, like we just mentioned CBD oil for pain management that has been sourced from industrial hemp grown under the farm bill is in fact legal to buy and sell. The best CBD oil brands that we cover here on this site, claim to extract their concentrates from U.S.-based industrial hemp supplies, which if true, are 100% legal since they contain negligible amounts of THC.
I suffer fr migraines. Currently having Botox injections every three months for the last three years. This has helped went fr 24 to 30 migraines a month to 6 to 8 , now I'm back up to 14 to 20 a month. My doctor thought CBD oil might help. I have also started having anxiety attacks for a year now.
