Default CBD Use, anyone "got it" working for pain issues

I've been working with different types of CBD oil as I'd love to take less ibuprofen but keep trying different products and strengths.

I'm using one now and it's a 500mg type and says 1 dropper full 1-2 times daily. So far this dosage does not help.

Now I'm wondering and I'm going to test it, could 2 dropper fulls 1-2 times daily work for me. I'm thinking so much can depend on a person's body weight and the degree of pain one deals with.

Maybe someone will reply with some info that is working for them.

I think this is interesting in this context.

Cannabis has no benefit for chronic pain, major study shows

I think there are so many kinds & pure vs not as pure, with THC or only CBD... seems like testing/trials for each to find if & what works for them..

And many not help as much for pain, but might help for healing & sleep..thus less pain from that point eventually..

CBD for pain or healing - Google Search

I find that for me only certain strains help certain types of pain. for me it helps the fibro pain, IBS pain, Migraines, insomnia, bone deep pain in my lower legs and burning in my ankles and feet but does very little to help my lower back and more severe arthritis in my feet and knees.



Also dosage is different for every one, for someone who is going from pain relievers to CBD you are more tolerant and may need a higher dosage.



I was taking 800 mg of Ibuprofen a day and had a heart attack. Asked the doc about my kidneys and liver but not my heart. Found out afterwards that ibuprofen can contribute to a heart attack. So now I get injections and use CBD in different forms and change up strain. I am very med tolerant so I become 'immune' very quickly. The trick is finding someone who really knows what they are doing and really care about and believe in what they do to get honest product.

I am interested in others experiences. I am considering getting some for my arthritis.
I was informed by a friend to use the full spectrum CBD oil.and to use at least 600mg potency, my friend uses 1800mg and takes one dropper full and it usually lasts her 4 hours of relief.
That is not very long and sounds like a very high dose and I asked her how much money it costs as I have seen some cost

1000mg 40 doses 1/2doppler full=$139
600mg=$95
She said that the strength needed to be 600mg or greater to be effective.
I am going to my health food store tomorrow to see what they have to say and what they charge.

Agree must find a strain that works yet also switch that every week for couple days to not get tolerant.

I have medical so can control lots!
Still 3 months of trying.

I got RSO Rick Simpson Oil which comes in syringe and I use a toothpick to make my own gel caps. Smaller for day more for sleep.
I take night one with empty stomach, acid can ruin absorption. So big water and pill. I started and realized just need a tiny bit.

I use a medicated lotion that is excellent. Last hours nice natural stuff it absorbs well. Better than all alternatives I tried for years.

I have a kind for sleep, pain and relax.

I am almost done tapering off Tramadol so I can really know how well it works in a month or two!

Medical is so important bc it is controlled for exact amounts and clean of any crap.

I wish our country had made this medicine ages ago, we could be solving many forms of pain. Plus sleep, PTSD, nausea, cramps, depression, anxiety...

Wellness is a job worth doing.

I have chronic pain due to arthritis in my lower back. I live in a State that has medical marijuana. I don't have a card from the State yet, so I buy from the recreational side of the State approved dispensaries. I started with the oils, no help. Then tried CBD buds, but they had a low amount of CBD, only 11%. It took a few months before I found what I think might work. It's a vape pen and cartridge (battery). It has 68% CBD, and only 4.5% THC. I've only been smoking this for about a week, but I'm hoping at some point it will help with my arthritis. The cartridge is from "Freedom Pen". We have to pay a hefty tax on all CBD products, but I think it's worth it because everything sold in the State approved dispensaries has been approved by labs in the State I live in. Good luck everyone.....AChronicPainer

This CBD stuff just doesn't do it for my issues. I've been posting about the HGH homeopathic gel I'm using and getting some slow but nice support and less pain with the OA and pain I deal with. It's adding growth hormone to our damaged bodies and helping what is "broken down"...
