Anybody here tried any of the CBD oil options ? If so I’d be interested to hear how you got on with it.

I garden for a lady who is disabled. She uses it and can’t praise it enough.

I tried it for my Arthritis pain it didn’t work for me.

No i haven’t because I read there is so little of use in the commercial products to make it pointless
My best friend bought some for arthritic knee pain and said ‘no help whatsoever’

Thank you. I ordered some, one of the brands recommended last year in an Evening Standard article. My husband has RLS and though I doubt it’ll help that problem specifically I’m hoping it might help him sleep better. 🤞🤞

One of my sons bought me some to help with my plantar fasciitis, I haven't tried it yet. He said it makes him feel better and helps with his sleep. I don't really need help to sleep I must admit. Before that another son bought me curcumin tablets which helped his bad knee. I've taken them for two months now and they have made no difference so I might try the CBD next. To be honest I don't really believe any of them help so that might be the problem. Simple paracetamol before I go for a walk takes the pain away a bit usually. I think some of it is psychological even though I try to believe!

It’s just a trend to make money sorry for being cynical

Grandma2213 My plantar fasciitis was cured with one session of acupuncture.
Best £40 ever spent.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out to be a waste of money, but hey ho 🤷‍♀️, worth a go.

I cured my plantar fasciitis by wearing special insoles in my shoes for 6 months. Got them from Pavers outlet shop.
My daughter has been taking prescribed really strong CBD oil , just approved by the NHS, for her progressive MS. Doctor just taken her off it as little progress.

Charly My sons bought them. I wouldn't waste the money! joannapiano I've tried the special insoles many times and can't even make it to the end of my drive without excruciating pain and hobbling back. I've found Boots gel insoles help me walk a little further and I have tried resting (makes it even worse), gentle walking, massages, cold compresses and all the exercises suggested by physios. I've had it for 18 months now and just occasionally it feels a bit better for no good reason and ditto a lot worse for no good reason.
Sago I never thought of acupuncture but still a bit cynical. I'll think about it.
