    Anyone using CBD Oil for pain in place of opioid type pills?

    I am curious about it, I see it advertised that it will eliminate pain. Is there anyone that has actually used it, not just read about it?

      I have not, but I have a few customers that use it and swear by it. I don't know anything about their health history so I can't evaluate if it works for them or if they are also taking pain pills. There are some here that have used it I do know.

      I also have not but have also heard really good things about it. I've heard even better things if you happen to live where you can get the oil with THC in it. I have a friend who swears it cured his aggressive SCLC when doctors had given up on curing him. (That's the CBD/THC oil that I'm talking about).

      My son bought some CDB for his cat who is quite the meower. The cat is 14 or 15 years old and had developed a strange gray spot on his back. Since he's been on the CDB, which he loves, his hair has turned black again and he is calmer and doesn't meow so much.

      I'd say it is probably worth a try if it is not extraordinarily expensive.

      Don't know if you saw this or how reliable "this" even is ... but it is someone's top picks for CDB oil for 2018. https://www.marijuanabreak.com/best-cbd-oils-pain-relief I didn't read closely, but scanned some of it - pretty interesting reading.

      CBD is effective against pain.

      I went one better. I bought legal FECO (full extract cannibus oil) when I was out in Ca.

      Not only does it relieve anxiety and pain and adjust attitude but it is quite effective against "skin ickies". I had one positive for squamous cell biopsy on my shin and that was way more than enough.

      I use the FECO and it hasnt missed once. The dermatologist finds a spot she wants to biopsy. I say lets wait a month. I use the oil and then return for a check and she no longer is concerned about the particular area.

      My osteopath calls it a skin bleach.

      Go figure.

      Best wishes

      I use it for my neuropathy pain and for sleep. It works very well and very quickly in oil form.

      I have used Marinol pills which contain both CBD and THC. I can say that I've used it for pain recently and it did help somewhat, but I haven't used a cbd only. Medicine.

      I did find myself off of some of the other meds I take during the evening because the Marinol was giving me the same benefits of those meds.

      If it's legal in your state many dispensaries carry it CBD oil. Some of them deliver!

      My palliative doctor had me read a book by one of her colleagues called "Stoned".

      It was easy to read and blew away a lot of myths about marijuana and its uses.

      The author came away from his study feeling surprised because he now does believe cbd and weed can work for pain control ( and other things too like asthma!). He goes into a lot of detail as to why they work and about many of the different products available in dispensaries and how they could be used well for pain control. It's worth reading imo if you are just learning about the subject.

      The author is Dr. Daniel Casarett.

      Good luck!
