How CBD Oil Helped My Back Pain

Cannabis medicine is an anecdotal game – the people using cannabis may have a different perspective than the scientists doing the research—and the scientists doing the research are often working under legal restrictions. It’s also important to know the way science works—small, steady steps examining specific questions. While this method can result in reliable information—it is often not a speedy method of getting the information.

Read this post to find out how a beautiful and smart woman from the UK named Sarah used CBD for her back pain.

It all started with my job where I work as a care assistant in a care home.

As part of my job, I had to do some pretty hefty lifting where patients were concerned and that put a strain on my back.

I started to develop persistent back pain and I had to quit my job and stay at home.

The back pain affected my mobility, and I was started on a course of physiotherapy and when that didn’t help a friend gave me a Tramadol pill to try, just to see if the pill would help relieve some of the pain.

I took the Tramadol pill and within an hour the back pain had gone away.

I decided to continue on the Tramadol even though it meant I was suffering from fatigue, dizziness, and general fogginess.

Back Pain is Miserable

I wished I could find something that was more natural with fewer side effects.

Don’t get me wrong I was grateful for the relief it brought me, but I was still unwell in other ways due to the medication I was taking.

A friend of mine who suffers from anxiety started to do some research and read on a health forum that CBD was helpful in the treatment of anxiety and she bought some to try out for herself.

While she was researching the properties of CBD she also read about its pain-relieving properties and immediately thought about me.

The CBD oil she bought online worked to treat her anxiety so I thought it might work for me and my back pain.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, or CBD , is the second most common cannabinoid found in cannabis or marijuana. The other well-known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC .

CBD acts differently from THC. It doesn’t get you high as it has no hallucinogenic qualities. It also reduces the hallucinogenic effects of THC when both compounds are taken together (THC in trace amounts, of course).

CBD has few significantly negative side effects. It’s generally considered safe to take which is why you can find it for sale in places like Walmart, 7 Eleven, and other retail stores.

Quality does matter and you need to be knowledgeable in how to identify good quality brands from the fly-by-night CBD companies who are simply putting a label on a wholesale product.

People don’t use CBD just for pain. Other known uses of CBD include 1 :

The good thing about CBD which comes from hemp is that it is legal in all 50 states in the USA and some parts of the EU. It’s also freely available to buy online as long as it contains ≤0.3% THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid 2 .

I was curious and started reading up on the research surrounding CBD and its pain-relieving properties.

A problem my friend and I had was that of finding a regular, reputable supplier of CBD oil and finding the correct dosages and other relevant information we needed on the internet.

Our doctors had never heard of CBD here in the UK but that is slowly changing. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulation Agency ( MRHA ) declared CBD a real medicine with real benefits. which means doctors now have to be knowledgeable on the health benefits of CBD. When I embarked on this path, little was known about legal medical cannabis in the UK.

My research convinced me that it was safe to take and I had nothing to lose so I decided to give it a try.

It came in a syringe loaded with hemp-based oil or paste, a dark paste-like substance with a distinct smell and taste to it.

Another problem I had to face was the cost of the CBD as I had to pay for the medicine out of my own pocket and it came to quite a notable sum of money each month.

Results of Taking CBD Oil for Back Pain

On my first day of trying the oil and taking a dose of roughly 30-40 mg, I managed to go all day without taking any other pain medication.

That was absolutely superb! I usually had to take my medication more than once or twice throughout the day.

I continued to take a dose of CBD for back pain every morning without fail. Within two hours, my back pain was gone, and I had no side effects at all, just a feeling of total relaxation and well-being.

Another plus side to this medication is that it enhances your mood so that over time your mood improves. I personally found that my cognitive abilities were also boosted.

It comes as no surprise that CBD helps with back pain as it has a strong anti-inflammatory action and it helps to relax the muscles in the body 3 .

I found that all I needed to take was the CBD oil to feel fit and healthy and I have recently returned to my job feeling better than ever.

I can wholeheartedly recommend CBD products to anyone that has pain management problems.

Whether they are dealing with pain that is difficult to treat or maybe just want to come off pharmaceuticals or avoid surgery, they most definitely need to think about trying a course of CBD hemp oil to treat the pain before resorting to trying other remedies which can be harmful to the body.

CBD is a non-toxic substance that has few side effects. These side effects can include (for ingested CBD) 4 :

Have you tried CBD oil?

CBD oil is Federally legally across the United States if it is manufactured in an appropriate manner. As long as THC levels are below 0.03, the government supports the distribution of it. My Dad tried a few different types of CBD oil to see if it would help with issues like muscle stiffness and anxiety. He’s not convinced that it had much of an impact. Have you tired CBD oil? Did you notice a difference? Was there a specific kind of tincture that you used?

I used but nothing happened for better situation. ?

I have used CBD oil for about two years. I find that it relaxes my muscles and get rid of the stiffness and soreness. I was getting Botox shots, but the CBD oil works just as well, And it’s considerably cheaper. It also helps me sleep.

I tried the highest strength of Charlotte’s Web for my relative with late-stage Parkinson’s and dementia. I found that it definitely did *something*— when we gave it to him in reaction to bad off periods (spasms, pain, etc.) there was about a 50%-60% chance that it would make the spasms go away and completely relax him… but only for about 30 to 45 minutes.

We also tried a daily dose but could not identify a change in his on-off pattern or in the severity of the off periods. Presumably a higher dose would help (if the bottle contains what it says it contains; gotta be careful about that now in the Amazon era), but it was already many times the cost of his normal meds for a very limited benefit, so we discontinued it.

(With apologies for going somewhat off-topic, we later tried TouchPoints, and they have proved more effective at the same goal—inducing muscular relaxation—and way more cost-effective. There’s a thread on them somewhere in these forums.)

yes but no results

I believe CBD is a placebo unless taken at extremely high and potentially toxic doses. It doesn’t bind to the receptors of the endocannabinoid system. It has been speculated that it may boost your body’s endocannabinoid production, but I don’t buy it. Any non-placebo effects of CBD are mainly from the THC in the oil.

I’ve had similar thoughts, that THC (the anecdotal stories of what it might do are very interesting), along with maybe a dose-dependent anti-inflammatory effect (and the general health benefits associated with reduction of inflammation) might be what is really going on with cannabidiol.

On the latter possibility, it is certainly an old trick of the supplement industry to pump a legit study and, once there is enough excitement about the subject of the study, to push supplements containing far less of the magical ingredient than was used in the study.

Wife With Parkinson’s takes Greenforia CBD 1000mg Full Spectrum Tincture twice a day under her tongue. She swears by it. It helps with muscle pain and stiffness. She takes one dose in the morning and one at bedtime for sleep. It is very effective for her anxiety which triggers her tremors.

CBD does not interfere with her meds and her doctor supports her taking it.

We have learned that the quality of the CBD is very important. We have tried other brands, even the one mentioned in an earlier post, without desired effects. The Greenforia brand seems to be of high quality and it is thirds party tested for purity.

Andrew- that definitely could be the case. But there’s evidence that suggests that even if you know something is a placebo, it can have positive impacts on your body. For that reason, I like to come up with little tricks for my Dad (diagnosed in 2013).

“Dad, here’s a miracle shampoo I read about on the internet. It’s supposed to help with tremors.”

He doesn’t usually buy it. But I think that we should explore the placebo effect a little bit more with PD.

My patient family asked for CBD , so I was giving to him when he was getting anxious , but I did not notice any difference in physical or mental behavior , maybe was calming effect lil bit

donboop, you need to realize that not all CBD’s are equal in quality and strengths. You need to find the correct brand that will work for your patient. We have found that the Greenforia CBD Full Spectrum 1000mg works the best. Not only for anxiety for for sore muscles and stiffness. Good luck.

Mary- Here is the deal as I see it today (am always learning) after much consultation with respected physicians in the field…THC is not a placebo unlike CBD. Taken in relative “microdoses” (the only way to do this scientifically is with capsules, otherwise the actual ingested dose is guesswork, particularly if smoked), it does decrease anxiety, causes some pain relief (prob not as much as advil but noted nonetheless), and helps with sleep. It is also a mild appetite stimulant. Only other “side effect” is feeling of mild euphoria, which prob gives it addiction potential; however this is certainly better (imo) than Parkinson’s depression/anxiety. Sativa vs. indica prob not an issue at microdoses. Some neurologists be concerned with longer term cognitive impairment, however studies don’t support this and I don’t think this is a long term problem with the proper dosing . As with any medicine, risks must be weighed versus benefits for each patient. Thus not for everyone, and definitively needs to be done under competent physician supervision. Disclaimer: None of this is medical advice, just sharing what I know.

I have also been told that to get a similar effect with CBD one would have to take up to 50x or more CBD than is normally “prescribed” and this is associated with liver toxicity. Stated differently , to get the same beneficial effects using CBD versus micro dosed THC, one would have to take a toxic dose.

Can you whitey from CBD? That’s my main fear and which is why I haven’t smoked weed ever since I had that experience.

My wife uses it. No effect on the PD, but she has Crohn’s disease, and has helped her gut feel better. Her gastro Dr was appalled. I suspect because it would be a hit against big pharma.

My grandfather, who is 85 and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 10 years ago, is at the stage of falling a lot, hallucinations, and psychosis. After a bad episode of psychosis/dyskinesias 3 weeks ago, he agreed to try CBD flowers. My family has said he has been calmer and less restless. I just visited him in Buffalo from Colorado for 2 days and he did not have any hallucinations (he even said “I haven’t seen anyone lately!”), no spells of dyskinesia and no psychosis. It seems like it’s working and what a relief for my family.

If you are approaching or have just started taking CBD oil, keep some things in mind.
