CBD Oil any advice

Recommended Posts

My wife has spinal degenerative disease and has for quite a few years found herself unable to do most day to day tasks, I saw a video that said vaping CBD oil could help hugely on those bad days.

has anyone ever used these oils and did they work? She doesn’t want to be on medication like Tramadol all her life so we are willing to try anything.

thanks

I know a few people who take it for arthritis, back problems and fibromyalgia. 

 

One of them said that the 2%ish CBD content stuff you can get in Holland & Barratt etc isn't much cop and you're better paying more for the 5% CBD stuff as it's more effective. 

 

Also, be aware of the no grapefruit juice warning, if your missus has any prescription medication with this warning on. Apparently, CBD oil can have the same effect on prescription drugs as grapefruit juice can, increasing the potency of the prescription meds. However, this isn't always stated on the CBD oil literature/leaflets, apparently.

Thanks for the info, She wants to come off the prescription drugs completely while trying the CBD oil to see if it works, reading online it seems to be really effective for back problems

I was on tramadol every day for months last year for an herniated disc and a bulging disc, so understand the types of issues she's having as I still suffer. Does she keep active and stretch? As that's what's helped me the most though her symptoms sound more severe than mine.

Yeah she has a wonder core trainer and one of those vibrating plates to help circulation and muscle strength, Tramadol and Targinact she is on and it turns her into a zombie. Even if it just replaces some of the medication for now I would be happy.

I had the same issue with codiene with my slipped disc, Dr put me on a tablet called Targinact which is an oxycodone based tablet but with another ingredient in to stop you getting nausea, constipation etc. Been on 2 a day for about 6 months now and never felt better.. never had an issue with my stomach since.

My missus is using the CBD oil, couple of drops under her tongue for her fibromyalgia and says it works wonders

I am ok on Tramadol and Targinact but not them, citaropralam were ok when I was on them

They made me feel like a zombie, with a hangover. Like I say these Targinact are fantastic, pain gone and no drowsiness or nausea

You've said there that she’s already using the CBD oil drops under her tongue mate. I’ve never tried it but surely that’s more effective than vaping it? Especially if you’re buying the vape juice from somewhere that it’s been diluted.

We read that it gets into the blood stream much more through vaping, not sure if that’s right or not, hence the question. The tongue ones don’t seem to work for a long period so thought we could try another route, you can buy 250mg oil online which seems a lot stronger than the drops.

When you take it orally you only get about 15 % into the bloodstream so not that efficient really as the liver will take some of the cbd out as basically oil is not that soluble with water so it diffuses and goes into fatty tissue that's why it is better to smoke it as it bypasses this and gets straight into the bloodstream so is therefore quicker and stronger in effect too.

Damage your lungs to ease your back pain? Is this how this oil thing works?

Well I wouldn't be so sure on that Vlad, some evidence suggests that those with COPD are helped by using CBD vapes and in the study below it helped mice with lung injuries

 

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25356537

 

It could also help those with chronic Bronchitis, esp when used with certain terpenes

 

Though obviously with an oil the fat can be deposited on your lungs so it is important to see how the oil has been made in the 1st place

I agree that the oil seems to be nectar in terms using Marijuana to treat chronic pain in many different illnesses but I'd have a few concerns about the delivery system,ie smoking it,personally. Is there no way of adding it to food or drink,as cloggy intimated?

There are various routes to consider, like Cloggy says but for absorption the best route is by vape, my missus doesn’t smoke so she won’t be chugging away at the vape just occasionally when the pain starts to increase

Does this stuff show up on drugs tests, by that I mean driving. I wouldn't mind taking it providing it doesn't hinder my license which I am fucked without!

When I failed a test they only tested for THC with regard to cannabis, but even that is wrong as they can only test for metabolite THC-COOH which can remain in the system for quite some time where as THC actually leaves your body after a few hours

Not worth the risk then, unless it's from a very reputable source

You can get all the benefits of CBD w/o the THC, from Hemp extract - Hemp is the same family of plant, but ultra low levels of THC.

 

You must use Hemp extract - not Hemp Oil from seed. There’s no CBD in the seed.

    • Divock Origi, the man who was undoubtedly one of Liverpool's heroes of the 2018/9 campaign will not be on the move in the summer transfer window.

      After his telling contribution in the last month of the season, it had been speculated if the Belgian would look to new pastures, especially as his status as a impact substitute and occasional starter is unlikely to change in the long term at the Reds.

      However, The Mirror reports (via ESPN) that the club will not sanction a sale for Origi under any circumstances even if it means losing him on a free transfer at the end of next season.

      The 24 year-old is approaching the final year of his current deal and while it is believed that he has opened up contract negotiations over a new deal. Origi is keeping all options on the table.
        It is fair to say that Origi's Liverpool career has been something of a roller coaster.  

      There were the highs of the Europa League campaign in Jurgen Klopp's first season where he led the line against esteemed opposition with maturity well beyond his years,  but soon after the crushing blow of a serious ankle injury occurred sending him back to square one once again.

      Midway through the following season saw the striker hit a hot streak scoring four goals in as many league games, but the second half of that campaign saw Origi flatter to deceive.

      He was then sent on loan to Wolfsburg for the 2017/8 campaign where it is fair to say he did not set the world on fire by any means.

      So the expectations on his return to the Premier League were certainly not what you would call 'sky high.'    In fact to the contrary, many observers were surprised that he was still a member of the squad.

      But the beauty about Football is that it only takes a couple of moments which can set you on your way to another level and Origi is testament to that.   He was blessed to have the kind of physical attributes that every striker would die for, but for the youngster it was all about developing a sense of belief in his own capabilities.
        While the winner against Everton could be put down to a high level of good fortune, his ability to step up to the mark when the opportunity arose against Newcastle, Barcelona and Tottenham shows that Origi has plenty more to give as a footballer.   Whether that is to be with the Reds in the longer term is going to be a interesting storyline to follow.

      But one thing is for certain, after some false starts, the career of Divock Origi is only heading in one direction from here.

      And his contribution in the latter part of the 2018/9 season will never be forgotten by anyone associated with the club.
