    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?

      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!
