    Tell me about CBD oil....

    From what I understand, it can do wonders for joint ailments.

    Is anyone here using it?

    Best online source for purchase?

    Have yet to check local health food stores.

    What form and application technique(s) are you using?

    Drop under the tongue, right? Not rubbed into joint like a cream.

    Thanks!

    CBD is used for a number of ailments, including chronic pain.

    It's difficult to find a product that is legal in many states or to ship.

    There is some contention on this subject, but products made from hemp may be legal in those situations. This will be sorted out by the courts, of course.

    The product I am most aware of is Charlotte's Web out of CO. There are others. The products can be had in oils or capsules. There are also topical products.

    Important to remember that all these products have THC. Most won't get you high ( at least those made from hemp) but may show up in a drug test.

    Research and "field reports" are mostly positive.

    i can't remember who posted it, but there was an article i think i saw here a while back about a veteran who was finally able to treat ptsd by making his own cbd oil. he had to do a lot of trial and error to get stuff right but eventually got it set up.

    there are a ton of anecdotal data out there about effectiveness treating different ailments.

    bazza, one of our vendors is in washington state and he was telling me a couple of months ago that he was using some sort of cbd oil based cream for joint pain and that it was working wonders. he said he didn't expect it to help but was pleasantly surprised.

    and for the greater good, he is an evangelical conservative that is now a proponent of legal weed

    Find your own source then Google how to make Rick Simpson Oil. I know someone who was a chronic pain patient for several years and took a long list of pain medications. RSO plus a flax oil / cottage cheese mix (which helps with inflammation) has reduced the pain to the point this person takes zero pain meds today.

    Re: Tell me about CBD oil....

    Just got back in from the 'afternoon shift' and my joints are aching like crazy!

    I really appreciate all the information - especially the thread you linked for me, Brad. I must have missed that one, but after scanning through it, it looks very interesting and relevant to my question so thanks heaps!

    I agree with how stupid the laws are on this.

    I will post here as I learn more in case it's of help to others.

    Thanks again!

    I'm guessing that unless you are in a legalized state and you buy it from a licensed shop, let the buyer beware.
    I get multiple CBD oil spam daily so that should tell you something.

    Not sure if this helps with your comment, Bamaro but here's this.....

    CBD oil from Hemp is legal in all 50 states...(keywood is HEMP). Read below for clarification:

    Re: Tell me about CBD oil....

    FYI: I just made a purchase from *this company:
    https://shop.medicalmarijuanainc.com/

    It was very easy....not different than ordering something from Amazon.

    Here's what I purchased:
    https://shop.medicalmarijuanainc.com...hemp-oil-drops

    Also....I dropped by the local Publix on the way home and for the heck of it asked the pharmacist about CBD. He said it's supposed to be helpful (went on to describe the chemical/physiological process involved) and said it's important to leave the drop of oil under your tongue and not swallow so the active ingredient can be absorbed and not diluted prematurely.

    He also said the market is not yet heavily regulated so there's no agency as watch dog over purity, etc.

    I will let you know what happens - should arrive within' a week.

    *no affiliation with this company

    Re: Tell me about CBD oil....

    We have friends that have a child that has seizures. They give her "normal" medicine on a daily basis from her specialist, but keep cbd oil for when she has a seizure. She was at our house for a spend the night and had a seizure the following morning. She was shaking and turning blue when we applied the cbd oil to the bottom of her foot. The seizure subsided within 5 seconds, probably sooner, but I was extremely scared and just trying to reassure everyone that it was going to be fine, so it seemed an eternity. The parents told me many varieties of cbd oil on the market are worthless, but the "real" ones can be very beneficial. From someone who has seen firsthand the effectiveness, I can tell you that most of it is snake oil, but the genuine cbd oil, such as the "charlottes web", can be life altering if not down right life saving. We are in the infancy of discovering the medicinal benefits of a plant that has long been stigmatized. Good luck with your trial and please update us!

    this type of thing is what tipped georgia into allowing it for certain illnesses/conditions. you still cannot legally get it here though, so folks who need it are having to get it via other means.

    the dems (and one of the gop gov candidates who lost heavily this week) have decriminalization/medical as parts of their platforms in georgia.

    Re: Tell me about CBD oil....

    I have a cousin with severe seizure issues she got a medical card in GA somehow and has somehow found a way to actually get high CBD low THC vape pens. Her turnaround is frankly astonishing. Going from near comatose on the prescribed pharmaceuticals and still seizing multiple times a day to being able to be a productive person that can interact with her kids and having a seizure every week or two. It has been amazing to see the difference
