CBD given in

Well I’ve given in and ordered some CBD e-liquid with a strong strength and a vape pen so let’s see if this really works for pain.

After smoking cannabis for the last week I really hated smoking with backi but it helped so much so after so many people on here saying it’s good let’s give it a go and see :)

I managed to get a really food deal on 600 strength I think it .

Did anyone see results straight away? How exactly does it help?

Hope everyone is having a good evening and let’s keep helping each other through our hard times x

Good for you. I am a self confessed advocate of CBD.

Not sure how your strength works..I just get low, medium or high. Leave the technics up to my wonderful supplier. He is the one with all the knowledge.

It works by relaxing your muscles which as you know tighten during stress thus causing pain. Bodies own protective mechanism.

Once you have the oil in your system it starts to work. Almost immediately.. David takes 2 medium capsules a day.and certainly helping him to relax and lower his pain

Let me know how you get on.

Thank you I will! I didn’t know you could get capsules I will look into that as well. With the liquid they have like 10ml bottles that go into a e cigarette type thing and you smoke it and they have different strengths like 10mg 59mg 200mg etc so I’m just going to play around with my strength and see what’s good for me as I’ve smoked before they said I needed to start on a stronger strength.

Can I ask what website you order from or could you private message me so I could have a look and see what they offer.

It’s so frustrating that it’s not included in pain relief here and you have to buy it out of your own pocket .

I’m so glad it helps your husband your clearly an amazing wife and carer he’s lucky to have you xx

Two thing to know about CBD. It's effect is cumulative so often is not felt for days or even weeks. It's very individual.

Also there needs to be a 2 hour gap between pain killers and taking CBD products like oil or paste but with a vape probably not as it's not be digested.

Buy the best products you can. Avoid the high street shops as their CBD tends to be weak.

Best thing you can do is join one of the CBD Facebook pages. Lots of advice and help. I use the UK.

I guess it effects difference people differently then. With vaping it goes straight into your blood stream so it’s much quicker that’s why I choose to do it that way. I found a good site I like and the blokes know what they are talking about and been around a long time so I think I’m in good hands.

Thank you but I don’t have Facebook it’s not for me lol

I'm trying vaping myself at the moment after first trying blue capsules (sativa) from cbd brothers for a couple of weeks starting at new year and adding in the drops - first blue then the white oil which is from Indica strain so supposed to be better for pain. Only had a sample of the white so not used any huge amount and already nearly ran out so mainly just vaping at th moment.

CBD has definitely helped me with getting off to sleep much much better and think it helped with the withdrawal from tramadol but wasn't sure if it was doing much at all for pain so added in vaping about 3 weeks ago - started with a 10ml bottle of 100mg cbd, then next time a 10ml bottle of 200mg cbd and have bought a 300mg one ready to use when run out of the 200mg. Feel like it might finally be having some effect (although nothing dramatic) so want to persist a bit longer and maybe gradually increase the dose if needed but obviously it is getting more expensive as the strength increases! I think the 300mg 10ml bottle was about 32 quid.

Where did you get yours from? I was originally looking at Koi as that seems to be one of the main ones but realised as their bottles are 30ml rather than 10 the same strengths will be weaker than the 10ml bottles as the mg given is what is in the whole bottle. I.e. their 30ml bottle of 250mg will actually be weaker than the 10ml bottle of 100mg.

Really hope it helps you but maybe it takes a bit of time and won't work for everyone. As much as they say the cbd is the pain relieving part of cannabis I'm not entirely convinced that it can work as well as actual cannabis as in with thc also in it....the medical marijuana they use in certain states in america has both in after all...but willing to keep trying for now!

Good luck!

Hi there.

I ordered from CBD mods I think it was called as they were doing an offer in their 600mg one for £10 so you can try it. I started on that strength as I’m used to smoking weed all the time so I think a lower dosage won’t do much.

The thing is I’m not smoking this to get the effect of smoking weed im smoking it so hopefully it will stop my spasms and relax my muscles enough to get my pain killers to work and to finally get some sleep.

I think it’s all just trial and error. My product will be here tomorrow I think so I will try it out tomorrow night or the night I receive it and I will give an update as to how it worked/helped etc.

Vaping CBD is so much better! Works on pain, spasms and mood. If you get a decent vaporizer you can set the temp and airflow to get the most out of it (even result in cool vapour). I go through about 1ml a day (2 on a bad day).

They're pretty good value. Not the best eliquid, but it is a really good price (shake well). Koi charge too much for weak products. It's been a learning curve.

Reply

Where do you get yours from can I ask? And what strength do you get?

I’m glad to hear a good positive review on vaping :) is there a pen you can suggest? I’ve bought a normalish one for now

Thank you

For eliquid I use Alpine Herbs (Caramel 400mg - you would never know), it's £25 on Amazon (which actually isn't a bad deal). I'm still going through my first order from CBD Mods (brought 5 bottles for £40), they're working well.

I have two vaporizers, a compact vapepen (Aspire Pockex £18), which is solid so I don't worry about carrying it around (stocked up with caramel). The other is one of those boxes with a tank on top (Vaporosso Swag £36). It has a ceramic coil, meaning it uses half the energy of a normal one. Plus it has a temperature setting to adjust to how you're breathing. Evan at 200c the air flow is actually sub ambient. You can spend more, to get a colour screen, or more power than you'll ever need.

Yeah I’m going to order the 5 bottles for 40 if I find it helps as it’s a great deal, I imagine I will go through quite a bit so don’t want and can’t spend that much on just one bottle unless it was really powerful stuff. I will only smoke it at night so hopefully it helps the spasms stop enough for me to sleep lol.

Oooo I like the sound of the other one , if the one ive book got brakes or isn’t any good I’ll give that one a go thank you.

This might sound silly but do you feel actually more relaxed when smoking it or is it like sort of a painkiller if you know what I mean lol

Reply

It's both, works on pain and makes you more relaxed (some people mistake the calmness for a high), but still able to function.

There's absolutely no chance of me inhaling anything as a waft of passive smoke has me choking for days. What are the best pills, capsules, drops, etc, to try? Is there anything topical that won't mess up my thyroid/HRT/vitamin D hormones &/or nutrient intake, please?

Reply

Banana5-pat is the best person to talk to about this. But any capsules or however you take it doesn’t mess with anything like that in your body or I wouldn’t be able to take it either nor would people with cancer or other serious medical conditions. It’s safe and helps that’s the main reason people are switching to it rather than a lot of nasty painkillers

I am getting some good relief using cbd vaping..

I found a site called iceheadshop.co.uk

They have a huge range of cbd products and I have found them really helpful

Hope folks find the same benefits as I do..

I bought my vape pen off there :) what is their liquid like? Can I ask what strength you got?

Thank you for commenting I love hearing positive things about it :)

I’m glad your finding it helpful x

Hi bexamy can I ask where you got your cbd oil from. I can't do the Facebook groups as I work in a school and I have to have my privacy settings on high because of the little darlings I work with would love to read my Facebook page not that it is very interesting and probably very boring, but it is a rule that we have to abide by.

Reply

Hiya, I didn’t get oil I got the liquid to use in like e-cigarettes or vaping pens, it’s different from the oil, the oil is something you ingest and the liquid is something you smoke. So it’s all about how you want to take it, there is a cream that a lot of company’s seem to do as well.

I ordered the liquid from CBD mods, I paid a first customer offer of £10 just to see if it’s any good and then they do a deal on 5 bottles for £40 and they post first class Royal Mail straight to your home. I bought my pen from iceheadshop.co.uk they also sell liquids but I bit more expensive

But there are so many different websites and strengths to choice from , I choice the strongest as I used to smoke.

Glad to hear it''s helping people. I'll persist a bit longer! It may be that I need to increase the dose a little more but for those that find it helpful, did it take a little while?

Also has anyone had any experience of taking the eliquid through airport security? I'm going to Spain next week and just don't want to have it took off me or get delayed by any questions. I always seem to set the barrier off or get my bag searched as it is! I know it is legal but might be a bit of a grey area when travelling or the staff just might not be sure what it is etc...

I would call your airline and ask them and tell them your taking it with you for medical reasons maybe even get your doctor to write a letter to say it helps. I personally can’t see them letting it through without warning or something. But I would advise calling your airline directly just to make sure

I completely agree with him lol it is the most amazing painkiller and relaxer there is, unfortunately it’s just hard to get hold of as it’s illegal and as I don’t actually smoke cigarettes I hate smoking it with backi.

If I found a way to smoke it without all of that I wouldn’t even think twice about my morphine lol. I’m so glad he does smoke that and it helps him it really is an amazing natural thing x

After a bit of a fail with the pen I bought , I managed to get it all working.

Well I’ve got to say I had quite a few puffs on it but it definitely made me feel more relaxed and calmed my spasms down enough for me to sleep 3 hours straight with no wake up in between which is a miracle at the moment. I will keep at it but seeing already positive results is great for me. I did however still take all my painkillers as normal and my oramorph on top as the pain has increased an awful lot lately but even with that I normally don’t get to sleep for that long at a time

Hope this is helpful for everyone

Let me know how u go I had some but blocked pen up I was told u r supposed to put it under u tongue

Reply

CBD oil and CBD liquid are completely different things the liquid is made specifically for vaping and the oil is for ingesting ie under your tongue.

I have been using it a while now with the strongest strength and I have to say I’ve not actually seen a reduction in my pain I’m on more painkillers and strzinger ones than before and have gone back to something else that helps.

I have a very high tolerance to things like this anyway but I will tell everyone to have a go it helps so many people it might just help you.

If you want to vape it you need CBD e-liquid NOT the oil x
