Recently I have experimented with vaped THC marijuana flowers which gives me about 5 hours of better-than-Tramadol pain relief from a single puff.  The accompanying high is very mild, like an ounce or two of wine.  This may be working for me due to the THC reaching my blood stream directly without having to go through my liver.  In any case, the pain relief from vaping greatly exceeds the pain relief from taking essentially the same dose orally, even though the oral dose is more intoxicating.  I’m not sure I will be able to completely stop using Tramadol this way, but this seems to offer a hopeful path.  FWIW correctly dosing vaped cannabis is very tricky, best to get some coaching from an experienced vaper otherwise you will initially grossly overdose which will not kill you but may not be to your liking.  I have also tried vaping CBD-only hemp flowers with essentially no results, would be interested to hear from others about their experiences with that…
Love, love, love the gold bottle, 5mgs. CBD per serving, peppermint flavor. Minutes after my first dose of two drops, I felt clearer mentally, less pain, more energy, but calm energy, not jittery or anxious. General sense of wellbeing, too! I take a couple drops every four hours, but not too close to bed as it is energising. Less pain, which is amazing…have a connective tissue disorder (EDS) which causes bone, joint and muscle pain and have been prescribed opiates to manage pain. This is much better for pain and mood.
There are a number of possible side effects to using CBD oil, such as fatigue, dry mouth, lightheadedness, hypotension, and impaired motor functions. However, when used in moderate amounts, most people do not experience these side effects, and none of them are known for being fatal or particularly dangerous. More than 20,000 studies have been done in the past 15 years on cannabis, hemp, and cannabinoids, and the results have been overwhelmingly supportive of the therapeutic potential and viability of CBD oil. That being said, some people should be cautious before using this powerful oil.

In your internet travels, you may also come across products called “terpsolates.” The manufacturers of these products infuse CBD Isolate with terpenes (but not cannabinoids like THC). These terpenes may enhance the effectiveness of CBD — or maybe they just make it smell good. This may be a good place to point out that not all CBD products are created equal. The industry is still largely unregulated, and the quality and quantity of CBD in a given product will vary wildly. Third-party testing definitely helps to monitor companies’ claims, but it’s still up to you as the consumer to do your homework on the best CBD products.


Each bottle contains 200 drops, and Provacan recently increased the size of the larger option by 20%. If you choose the 1200mg option, you receive 6mg of CBD per drop in the 10ml bottle. The company has also boosted the terpene profile of its oil along with levels of additional cannabinoids, including CBG, CBC, THCa, and CBDv – all non-psychoactive compounds that do not produce a high.

I am currently going through red skin syndrome/topical steroid withdrawal. The only cure as of now is time(6 months to 3 years) and waiting out horrible eczema-like flares. My main issue is burning/tingling skin that is almost constant. Steroids close off blood vessels and when you stop them they ‘wake’ up causing this nerve discomfort/pain. I’ve been smoking medical cannabis for the duration of my recovery(1.5 years) and It’s done wonders except that the flare is around my mouth and I’m afraid the smoking is causing more issues.. as well as helping. I need to step up my game and take a different approach. I am wondering how to go about using cbd but I don’t know where to start and was wondering if you could help.

I have been taking The Plus Gold 15mg for pain. I have suffered with fibromyalgia ,arthritis and incompetent veins for more than thirty years. Two bouts of Cancer and the accompanying chemo have further increased my discomfort. I was using Opiods (60 a month) to manage pain when I decided to give CBD a try. I started taking one a day for five days and was amazed that my comfort level was the same as with the Norco. I decided to try two a day and am now completely pain free. I feel like I can run to the door and race down the street. Ufortunately my body has lost the muscle and memory to do just that. I am now exercising to rebuild my muscles, stretching and basically relearning to use my body again. I even had to relearn bending my knees as I walk with a walker rather than shuffling. I feel truly blessed. Oh, I have been taking this for two months. Because I don’t hurt I can be up and mobile for very long periods of time. The extra activity has made me loose eleven pounds (without dieting),!!
BioBloom is the only organic CBD oil manufacturer that conducts meticulous lab tests to ensure its formulas contain a near-perfect 50:50 CBD to CBDa ratio. There’s a large body of research pointing to the benefits of Cannabidiol being enhanced by the presence of its counterpart (its acid form) CBDa. If you want this added benefit when taking other brands, try purchasing some hemp tea, where the CBDa content is naturally higher. Moreover, BioBloom drops are whole-plant extracts, meaning they contain not only a full spectrum of cannabinoids, but also the often-lost lipids, chlorophyll, terpenes, bioflavonoids and other delicate phytonutrients present in Cannabis Sativa L. This is why the colour of the oil is darker and the taste stronger.
That leaves those touting CBD’s effectiveness pointing primarily to research in mice and petri dishes. There, CBD (sometimes combined with small amounts of THC) has shown promise for helping pain, neurological conditions like anxiety and PTSD, and the immune system—and therefore potentially arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer, and more.
A study published by David Cheng, Postdoctoral Scientist, Neuroscience Research, University of New South Wales, NSW, Australia, says that CBD has a potential as a preventive measure against symptoms of Alzheimer’s. This presents yet another exciting development for medical researchers, given the persistent challenges to finding effective solutions for this condition.

The added stevia herb extract sweetener, along with the real citrus fruit flavor, ensured it tasted great and I only needed about 15mg of CBD (three x 5mg sprays) for the effects I was looking for. It dissolves very quickly, so all you have to do is spray some beneath your tongue and swallow. If, for some reason, the citrus taste is too strong, you can spray it into water and drink it.


CBD has been touted for a wide variety of health issues, but the strongest scientific evidence is for its effectiveness in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which typically don’t respond to antiseizure medications. In numerous studies, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and in some cases it was able to stop them altogether. Videos of the effects of CBD on these children and their seizures are readily available on the Internet for viewing, and they are quite striking. Recently the FDA approved the first ever cannabis-derived medicine for these conditions, Epidiolex, which contains CBD.
And then I woke up on the concrete, a worried crowd gathered around me. “You had a seizure,” my friend said gently as I blinked my eyes, trying to process this new information. I remember it was warm that night because I was wearing a sundress, and when I finally regained consciousness my first worry was that my dress flew up and everyone could see my underwear.

Thank you for your questions. Marijuana and hemp are two extremely different strains of the same cannabis sativa plant that have been bred over thousands of years to have entirely different purposes. (Hemp is not the male version of the marijuana plant.) They both contain CBD. Hemp only contains CBD whereas marijuana contains CBD and perhaps a hundred or so other chemicals with a variety of functions, such as THC, the molecule that makes people “high”. Any medicine can have different effects on different people. For example, Benadryl makes some people sleepy yet can make others wide-awake. So, it is not inconsistent for a particular medicine to cause a symptom in one person and to help alleviate it in another. So while many people experience relaxation with CBD, so people do experience the “paradoxical” effect of irritability.

Non-THC CBD oils can be highly effective, and are suitable for employees who face random or routine drug tests. Our top pick for this category is the Medterra CBD Oil Tincture, which contains 99.6% CBD and MCT oil (also known as coconut oil extract) without any traces of THC. The oil is derived from hemp plants that are free of GMOs and pesticides, as well. All third-party testing results for the oil are accessible through Medterra’s official product page.


I am approaching three weeks of being on CBD gold drops and just purchased the applicator version. I also bought the balm to rub on for shoulder pain. The first week I thought maybe I was wanting to believe in it so much that it was working, that maybe it was just that. I simply couldnt believe that it would work after all the doctors Id been to. Was recently told I would need to be on weekly shots for psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia. Have had two wrist surgeries and was looking at a shoulder and elbow surgery in my future. Have celiac disease and chronic pancreatitis too. Since taking this, I have had no joint or muscle pain! Happier because can do things! No anxiety being concerned about having to go places with pain. I don’t have the pain. Some days will have an aches, but can handle. Opioids never worked for me, so told doctors not to give me. I felt at a loss and decided one day that I would try CBD oil. By the second week, I was convinced! Im doing yard work and sleeping again! Im feeling normal! So thankful! I take it daily. Right now a dropper full of 5mg but plan on trying the applicator gold.
Top brands that create CBD products and offer sales, grow these plants and then extract the goodness of these plants, using different techniques to produce capsules, liquids, sprays or other CBD products. There are a few different ways to extract the “goodness” from the Cannabis plants, but the method most used by all the top brands is called CO2 extraction.
Apply CBD oil topically if you have localized pain. Look online for CBD topical skin creams if you live where it’s legal. The container will likely only display the total amount of CBD that’s in the product, so there’s no need to measure out a specific dosage. Simply use your finger to scoop up enough of the product to cover the area of skin you want to treat and rub it in really well.[4]

Did you get an answer for this? I have the exact same scenario. I’m treating my TN with Tegretol, and recently tried CBD. I think I took too much and there are some weird drug interactions with Tegretol and I felt quite stoned….was alone and talking to myself in my head thinking I was Einstein. It freaked me out a bit but I think I took too much. I’m trying lower doses again as recently my TN seems to be resisting the meds, although I have had a lot of emotional stress, which seems to be a trigger. Thanks!! Anna
