Actually, thc is illegal in my state, medicinally as well as recreationally. I "timed" a trip to CO with a friend to try these products. Since I am in pain mgt. I can't have this in my system when tested, so my trip was inbetween appts. to ensure I tested properly when I got back to my pain mgt. doc.

I cannot tolerate smoking it, so I bought some of the "rub on" creams and ointments and tried several over the course of the days I was in CO. I wanted to know if it worked well, and would have been willing to literally move if it did a lot (CRPS brings that out of us, lol). Anyway, I found that by rubbing the combination THC/CBD ointment (only 1 brand got me the results I am speaking of), I actually did have places where the pain in that area melted away. Other areas, it did absolutely nothing for me. Where the pain melted away, it melted away in grande style, and where it didn't work, it really didn't work at all.

Of the 5 or 6 brands I tried (I literally went to like 4 shops and got a variety as this was an intentional and purposeful trip to see if I could really get relief), again, I found that only 1 brand did work for me, and of that, only in certain places on my body. The bottle was black with blue writing and the name of the product was named Luxeleaf.

Interesting! I thought grape seed oil was somewhat similar to caffeine (at least when I tried it many years ago). In the 90s, it was marketed as a workout supplement by "Weider" and others. I tried it and remember that it upset my stomach and made me feel very edgy and clinically "yucky". I know,, dont say it- sour grapes... But who knows what they were putting in their products at that time. Glad it works well for you!

Zero migraines.
Helps some with pain.
Helps with anxiety and c-PTSD.
Definitely helps with sleep.

I am currently vaping the actual "herb." However, I would like to find a suitable alternative method; no matter what you are told, vaping does release some smoke. I want to be smoke-free. I will be going to the dispensary again soon.


DejaVu

I got medical in my state and the RSO oil comes in a syringe and I make my own capsules.
Hard to measure. I use tooth pick and buy gel caps to fill.
Taken on empty stomach at night for sleep and wake no pain.
It is said that it must get to small intestine and not have stomach acid destroy most of the dose. I take smaller dose in am & that kicks in about noon!
RSO is Rick Simpson Oil developed in 70s. If it is medical grade CBD oil, it should work.

Lots YouTube videos on making your own!
If you can afford!

Oh the medicated medical pot lotion is amazing on nerve pIn! It works better than all things I have tried. Last hours! Just for when I am out places or breakthrough pain!

I spent a year planning the switch, better to have a plan and it is costly. I quit cable and tightened up bills so I can feel better!

As another said start low dose try different strains and mix up strains to maximize dependence!
Find your dose. Good to alternate strains if possible, by using tincture or smoke every few weeks or ur own awareness.

I had to do a smoke that puts me to sleep, (nothing was working bc of withdrawal I guess -INSOMNIA) one tiny bit, then the RSO does the best sleep.

I still use magnesium at bed, Neuroton still, vitamins meditating self hypnosis...

The medical pot people should be able to direct you yet took months trial to find my way and will need to adapt as I finish my taper off Tramadol!

Hope all find their way!

Thumbs up Mj and CBD

So starting off in college I tried marijuana and it may have led me down a path of depression and sleeping issues back in 2005. That led me to today where I am on disability for depression and anxiety.

Fast forward to 2011 where i was at a party and drinking and was offered pot again. I was in a good mood so maybe this time will be different. It was different i had a great night's sleep.

So in general today my opinion on pot is YMMV. But when cbd came out in stores i decided to try that. Well, I did have limited success. First I bought gummies which were called Just CBD, for me these gummies worked to relax and a little sedation as well, but not like a chemical sedation but more natural. These were 10 mg each cannabidinol. I also heard on CNN that CBD is metabolized in the liver so it can somehow block absorption of certain medications. So it's not totally harmless as they would have you believe.

They did not however help pain. For pain I think the creams/lotions are better. For that I went to Seventh sense in the mall, they had a CBD deep relief cream with arnica and menthol, not sure if it was the menthol but it seemed to work on tired and painful muscles. I also put it on my feet at night like some people put vicks vapor on their feet. So in general Ive had success with CBD, not so much with weed.

I've tried applying CBD oil topically to treat muscle spasms, electric shock sensations, and pins/needles sensations, and it hasn't offered any benefit whatsoever to me (nor has it provided any side effects).

Default Australia low-dose CBD oil

Low-dose cannabidiol (CBD) can be sold OTC in pharmacies around Australia from yesterday 1st February 2021 without prescription.

It's apparently low dose of no more than 150 milligrams per day. I have no idea how that translates.

It is not PBS at this stage so I have no idea of the price yet in my country. Vaping or topical cream products still need a prescription.

I will try some for my cancer/immunotherapy pain and other side effects at some time I imagine. I was probably eligible for a prescription for some time but I didn't really think about it. [I just read that our AMA isn't particularly happy with pharmacies being able to sell it OTC because they're concerned that pharmacists are not trained enough in its use and so some people who are already dealing with epilepsy, anxiety and other conditions will now not see their doctors as regularly as they need.]

This is actually an enormous milestone to see in my lifetime. I could go on but i won't.

Default So grateful for topical CBD !

The CBD oil Charlottes Web has changed my life. I have occipital nerve pain diagnosis on left face. This was initial reason for use along with symptoms I now know are like or are an aura for a migraine. I call it brain mush. I used to have it all day at times. Now only for short occasionally. I have had an application of the oil on my temple and forehead interrupt a worsening ocular migraine. Also it has improved my sleep and is amazing for spasms. Infantile spasms is one of the things is what is or soon will be medically approved for.. I was really desperate when I tried it as getting pain treatment in Iowa is near impossible. I literally learned acupuncture a short version with my former acupuncturist as one of several tools to manage my face and eye pain. It started at corner of left eye years ago. I trust the Stanley Brothers who developed Charlottes Web for Charlotte Figi. Her story is wonderful if you get a chance. Sculptor44

Great to read that it's helped you so much. I just read some info on the people you mentioned and learned a lot especially relating to terminology. Thanks for that.
I don't know what's going on here in my country after that announcement they made. I heard the next day that it'll take 6 to 12 months before anything is available OTC.
That link from the PN forum that Jomar posted higher up on the thread is worth reading too. Lots of information there.
