CBD

Can anyone give first hand information about using CBD for arthritis pain? It is very hard to google the topic without getting a bunch of sales pitches. I don’t know who to believe. A link to a believable source would be appreciated and any first hand reports. Thanks.

Several decades ago I had this pocket book “Grass”, explaining the THCs and CBDs in marijuana. If I remember right, the stronger buds had more CBD in it resulting to ‘stuporous’ effect while the leaves has more THC in it, resulting to a lighter, exhilarating effect… so we had sensimilla then, etc. Cool

Sorry, I can’t vouch on the current CBD being sold in the market as I have never tried nor needed it fortunately so far. Beer

When it comes to bodily function there is no definitive answer. People have variations in how their bodies metabolize substances. From aspirin to alcohol to cox2 inhibitors one drug will never work for everybody. Try it, but do yourself a favor and ingest orally rather than smoke or vaporize.

I have arthritis in my lower back.
I use cannabis because I also like the thc.
It works for me and has kept me off painkillers.
I burn it, vape it and ingest it through edibles.
There are plenty of CBD creams on the market.
Only buy from dispensaries as they use Industrial hemp as opposed to commercial hemp.

CBD nowadays is made from low-THC hemp, not conventional marijuana. It’s legal in the US, per-state and federally, and is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

Of course, just like with 30Qs (see what I did there?), you gotta get ‘em from reputable sources.

CBD oil is the new snake oil.

There are all sorts of claims that it can cure anything under the sun.

It has only been proven to help one or two things, and I don't remember what those are at the moment.

You can always try it and see how you feel. I would advice getting above 5% concentration. I know multiple people with artrites type deceases who can only sleep when using cbd and or thc. But its not some magic drops that fix everything

CBD helps only in reducing inflamation and soothing THC effects. For real stuff only THC helps, not widely available stuff but small batches made of premium Amsterdam winners.

Got a bunch of CBD stuff to try from a friend that is a manager at an e-cig shop. Helped some with nausea/upset stomach from my acid reflux and did a bit to relieve head/body aches when they happened. Didn’t seem to help with anxiety or insomnia at all.

Not much better results than a ginger root capsule or aspirin respectively and much more expensive if I was paying full price for it.

I use (vape) cbd for my arthritis and it helps very much. Relief arrives quite fast through vaping but…..it’s not the same for everyone. Some people don’t respond to cbd as well as I have. The important things are to do your research on the various ways of ingesting cbd and then if you want to try it, find a reputable retailer(no, you don’t have to go to Amsterdam). It may or may not help you but the only way to find out is by giving it a shot.

Been wanting to ask this same ? for aches in knees,neck, etc.

There are so many brands and they all say their’s is the best because of _____________ (insert CBD Snake Oil reason)
Hoping for some real life responses.

Do not want to vape, would rather some kind of cream or rubbing compound.

This is a good place to learn about the various methods of cbd application and find some of the better known retailers.

Since this site only deals with cbd oil products, it makes no mention of hemp high-cbd leaf that can be vaped or smoked—also worthy of consideration.

CBD is good BUT because the FDA is still pretty uptight about the whole association with cannabis I’m not even sure if there’s

1) regulations in place to ensure consistency of potency across companies and the CBD they use
2) any real in depth peer reviewed studies. I could be wrong here but how would they test it on human subjects thoroughly if it was considered a Schedule 1 drug

I personally use the CBD gummies and isolate pills sold on InfiniteCBD. Not a plug or anything but I found that it has been the most effective one in my sampling journey. Wife also loves it too due to the fact it helps her sleep very well. We dose about 12.5mg and tend to not exceed that.

Best way to stop  arthritis pain is to find a safe way to get the aluminum out of your joints.

You might wanna consider inquiring on this CBD shop in KC, they are very knowledgable about the products and can give you good suggestions on what product and dosage you should take depending on your needs and not very pushy on selling too

The cheapest way is to but CBD isolate and mix your own tincture. It’s easy and there are guides out there, I’ll try to find one of the better ones and link it here.

I would not recommend THC, it can cause anxiety, paranoia, the munchies etc. CBD is said to be soothing. However concentrations in commercial products vary widely from claimed values.

Sometimes joint pain (no pun intended) can be cured or reduced using exercises. I have had painful knees for 15 years. Yoga style exercises are working wonders. The idea is that muscle imbalance can cause joints to misalign causing pain. Strengthen the muscles, and the pain goes.

Or grasp a stinging nettle. Seriously. I believe formic acid relieves arthritis.

No, I just know what I hear on the news.

They talk about CBD oil quite frequently.

What I posted earlier is the general consensus of scientists, and that's what I go by.

THC is another story.

I used to vape and smoke marijuana, and that really does something, but my days of getting high (or drunk for that matter) are behind me.

I knew an old Hungarian bee keeper that swore by bee stings for his arthritic hands.

Stinging nettles (which are abundant here in the UK) help with arthritic pain.

I just googled stinging nettles and it sounds interesting. Creams containing it my help arthritis. Currently using Arnica rub. Next up is Joint Flex. I will give it a try next after them. All cheaper than CBD at this point. Maybe when it becomes more common, CBD will come down in price. Currently about $50-$60 a month by my calculations.

And you find it helpful for pain? Soon Amazon will be on the CBD bandwagon. Not sure why they keep skirting around the issue. Supposedly it is legal to ship to all 50 states at the federal level. Maybe state and local laws are holding them back.
