Is anyone using this? Interested to know if it works and what the side effects are.

I'm giving hemp oil to my arthritic dog, as well as prescribed anti inflamatories. I don't know which one is having the greatest effect, but she is definately less stiff and more mobile.

The THC has been removed, so she won't become psychotic.

CBD oil seems to have become the remedy for all ills. I wonder how much is really helping or people become convinced that it does help? Still it won't harm trying it.

works better than paracetamol, taken cbd today, the dank wet weather is making my joints ache. It has worked and I am now comfortable

I’m 10 days in and my knees were less creaky at the gym today👌

How do you take it crafty one and Missfoodlove. I bought a bottle from H and B for one of my dogs, who sadly died. This grim damp weather seems to be exacerbating my aches and sore knees. Would I use a drop in a cup of herbal tea?

I bought cbd capsules from H&B.

I m told the amount in the H&B capsules is negligible
Like bluesky I m a bit of a sceptic about this as it seems the new thing to be trendy and is maybe a chance for the herbal companies to build their monetary empire I m not however doubting that cannabis oil may well have healing properties

I use real cbd paste from cbd brothers, only a tiny bit on a teaspoon, lick the spoon. The stuff in shops is very weak and not worth buying

CBD oil can only be prescribed in very rare cases here in New Zealand. If someone is in intense pain for which no other pain relief works.

It's illegal to import it, although I am hoping the successes in the UK might waken up the bureaucrats so we can buy online some day.

CBD is available as an oil or powder, which it is possible to use to make creams or gels that people can apply to the skin of the areas affected by arthritis.

People can also take CBD may also be taken in capsule form or as an oral spray.

It is a good idea to speak to a doctor before using CBD oil. A person should also educate themselves on the local laws regarding CBD oil, as the use of cannabis products is not legal everywhere.

I found out that there are a lot of manufacturers produce vape pens with an option to serve it with CBD OIL (like this: purekana.com/products/blue-raz-cbd-vape-pen-calm/), and they assure that it will relieve your pain and anxiety, making yourself calm and confident. Is it true? Has anybody tried those cbd vape pens?

Its the new StJohnsWort etc. Was a wonder drug that was supposed to cure everyone! Turned out it only had a mild positive effect on some people and caused others problems and drug interactions

If you take enough to have an effect, the effect can be negative or positive. I have read that it can make anxiety worse for some people

It worked for a short while for me, then after doing a mega prune of a large climbing rose the pain came back, so went to the GP and have ended up with a new hip!

Doesn't everyone take turmeric?

Joce345 Fri 29-Nov-19 15:22:59

I started taking CBD oil for my anxiety it’s seems to work better then every fluoxetine did which I took for over 10 years think it make your own mind up with it may be phycological not sure but if it works .

I have rheumatoid arthritis and on medication and found out that CBD would interfere with some tablets.

notanan2 Sun 15-Dec-19 21:27:41

Still it won't harm trying it.

If it's strong enough to have an effect it's strong enough to have side effects.

CBD can worsten anxiety/depression at higher doses for some people.

Nothing that "works" can be harmless

The oil I have is lemon flavoured and you drop it under your tongue (where it gets into the bloodstream quicker). I found that it didn't work instantly, but built up over a few days.

No nasty side effects so a good replacement for Codiene and Turmeric is good too.

The Food Standard Agency are clamping down on this industry. It was in the news just a few days ago. (13th February)
Please read up on the subject and do not take it if you are on any other medication as it can be dangerous.
It is just the latest money making fad for unscrupulous snake oil salesmen.

I tried CBD oil capsules for insomnia. I researched it well, found that the H & B ones are low grade and fairly useless unless as a placebo, so bought good quality from CBD Brothers. It made no difference to my insomnia though.
