OK, so I thought I'd post up some info here for anyone else who might be having some chronic body issues that may be helped by CBD oil. For many years now I've had chronic pain. It just comes with getting older I guess. Recently, due to the nature of my work, I decided to take a radical step and seek out something other than over-the-counter pain meds. I got tired of taking them, and I was also worried about how they be affecting my body in the long term. Here in Oregon we of course legalized recreational marijuana. With that industry, all things hemp came along with it including CBD oil. As I found through many trips to the web, CBD can be used to treat a variety of ailments, including chronic pain. So I decided to give it a shot. I went to a local dispensary, hit up one of the nice sales persons there, and she turned me on to all things CBD. It comes in a variety of forms including tinctures, topical rubs, and even edible candy. She explained that the highest concentrations are found in the tinctures so I decided to go with that. It is not cheap. It cost me about $50 for a one once dropper bottle. But as I stated, I was looking for something radical. Now, I'm not claiming that this is some sort of miracle medicine, but I am having success with it. I take about a dropper-full, twice daily, and this is what I've found: I have less pain overall, and have better, more restful sleep. I am able to walk around barefoot without terrible pain for the first time in a long time. It has NOT done anything for my chronic elbow pain, but that comes from my very physical job. And finally, it had one unexpected but VERY welcome effect on me- it stopped my hand tremors! Ever since a gym accident in 2011 when I tore a muscle in my upper back, I've had issues with tremors and twitching in my right hand. From DAY ONE when I first started the CBD, the tremors ceased! I've been able to play bass without biffing notes due to right hand twitching for the first time ever. So, to sum up, the CBD has had a moderate but noticeable effect on my chronic pain, and a dramatic effect on the hand tremors. I just ordered some more online directly from the manufacturer, and I'm hoping that with some lifestyle changes, I'll get even more relief.
