Default CBD For inflammation

I have been dealing with inflammation and terrible join pain all through my body and I was reading about the benefits of CBD (non THC) I have been taking two a day for a week and it's remarkable how much better I feel and the inflammation is gone.

If you are suffering like I was please give it a try it has given me my mobility back, plus my joins in my fingers don't hurt anymore so guitar playing is much more enjoyable again.

Glad it's working. That stuff is amazing. However, half the stuff that parades around as CBD isn't CBD at all or is far less potent than what's listed on the label. Your best bet is (as always) going directly to the source.

My wife has Psoriatic Arthritis and Fibromyalgia and is in almost constant pain to some degree. The CBD helped some, we switched to the CBD/THC gummies and they have been better for her.

Neither did much for me.

Where were you reading about this? Hopefully not from the supplement manufacturer.

This from the FDA:
"There are no other FDA-approved drug products that contain CBD. We are aware that some firms are marketing CBD products to treat diseases or for other therapeutic uses , and we have issued several warning letters to such firms.Jul 5, 2023"

You're a braver soul than I am. The FDA has no direct say or control about the claims that these suppliers make or how they have sourced the ingredients that they are putting in those products. They can only give people a big "heads up".
I'm glad you're feeling better, but I hope you bring a bottle to your doctor and show him what you're taking. Two a day is 6 grams. Not an insignificant amount.
Maybe I'm being too paranoid, but I'm sure that these "gummies" are different than the sugary ones in the candy isle at the supermarket. But who knows for sure?

I appreciate the heads up. At first it was from word of mouth from friends that either they or their spouses had felt the benefits then I looked into it on my own and I can't remember all the sites I visited but I figured I would give it a try and it has been a success.

CBD did nothing for me and my aches and pains. The THC/CBD combo on the other hand I find to have benefits for sleeping. I much prefer indica over sativa. Indica has a relaxing effect while sativa has an energizing effect.

Sorry to hear Scott that you didn't receive any help, I do also sometimes use the THC Gummies to help with sleep, one of the tricks I have learned when taking the THC Gummies is I will drink alot of water after I eat one or I will wake up with cotton mouth and dry eyes.

Same experience here. CBD is good for relaxing without getting high. For me it helps take a little stress off during or after a busy day. For general pain relief I use an external THC rich salve. Doesn’t get you high and works well for muscle aches and pains. For internal tinctures or edibles, a 1:1 or 1:2 CBD/THC ratio works best. Sativa blends are good if you want to be more creative or alert, and indica ones are best before bed. Other than having somewhat less clear dreams, I haven’t noticed any lingering affects the next day other than less pain.

If his doctor knew how to help his chronic inflammation, he wouldn't need CBD.
Much is due to diet, pro inflammatory ingredients. I appreciate the effects of THC, but after getting Covid, I tried these for headaches, and they actually made me feel awful!

Due to chemo induced neuropathy Iíve tried just about everything. As far as CBD/THC, my wife bought a salve from the local dispensary for my feet. Itís mostly Vaseline with (evidently) some of the compound. Iíll admit that it has very temporary benefits. But not sufficient relief to justify the cost and taxes.

My wife and MIL both have used the cream for knee pain. Apparently it works quite well, but as you say, only for a short time. I don’t think either are still using it for that reason, just not long lasting enough.
