CBD Oil Vape E-cigarettes

I’ve ordered a CBD oil vape kit - to help with my migraines and general pain relief. I don’t condone smoking at all and live as best I can and ever had due to hashimotos a healthy lifestyle.

But due to a constant migraine since February and taking so much aspirin and pain relief I thought I would try this as I’m running out of options until I see a neurologist. Plus I have severe anxiety and can’t cope with stress.

My body responses to any pain ie my stomach when I used to have gluten and now migraines, by having tremors and pulsating in that area. It’s not a pleasant experience along with dealing with the pain and discomfort.

I know getting a Vape Kit is not ideal but need to try it see if it helps and it doesn’t contain any nicotine, and the CBD active ingredients is absorbed quicker into the body and brain so lots of benefits including:

The ability to affect multiple targets within the body

The ability to overcome bacterial defense mechanisms

The ability to minimise adverse side effects

Also they can help issues with:

Depression

Anxiety and panic disorder

Fibromyalgia

Arthritis

Chronic pain

Addiction

Multiple sclerosis

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Appetite disorders

Crohn’s Disease

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

Type 1 diabetes

Menopause

Acne

Has anyone else used a CBD Vape and seen the benefits?

I’ve been reading so much about CBD oil being very helpful with chronic pain, keen to buy some and try it. Good luck, let me know how you get on xx

I will!

I’ve tried the paste and oil before but only samples. It tasted disgusting but I think the small amount I tried did help.

I should receive it tomorrow and you get instant results so I’ll post back on here and update you 🤞🏽

I would be more inclined to take CBD oil as drops - worked well for cat (and I took some too, as I wouldn't give him something I hadn't tried) than vape, as you don't know what chemicals/additives go into the oil to make it "vape-able"

I’ve gone to a reputable company and researched the product to ensure I’m getting pure CBD oil.

When you inhale the CBD vapor, you’re allowing compounds originally produced by a plant to enter your body, travel through your bloodstream, and enter your brain. Other than intravenous application, it is one of the fastest methods of getting the benefits from the CBD oil. Also CBD oil vaporises at 200c so works very well with a e-cigarette.

Should work well, then, as cat went from demented to calm in minutes with drops.

😂 yes but did you too Angel 😉 x

I felt fairly chilled out ...

Having hashimotos that’s a good feeling to have!

Both the above sentences suggest your problem might be related to cortisol levels being too low or too high. Internal (and possibly external as well) tremors are common when people have the wrong levels of cortisol. Unfortunately there is a lot of overlap in symptoms between too high and too low cortisol, so it is essential to test to find out whether you have either of these issues.

The best test of cortisol (but your doctor will pay little attention to the results, so this would be for you to do for your own benefit) is a saliva test which tests four samples at certain times a day. The following tests are best because they also include a DHEA test with their saliva tests :

gdx.net/uk/product/adrenal-...

regeneruslabs.com/shop/prod...

Look for info on both these companies on this link from Thyroid UK :

thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/testin...

Genova is complicated by the fact that you have to use Thyroid UK as a go-between. They don't deal directly with patients more than they have to.

For lists of what affects cortisol :

Note that some things in the above lists raise cortisol and some lower it.

For optimal results for cortisol see Example 1 on this page :

Good luck. :)

I’ve already looked into this and my cortisol level with my GP was good. Not a definitive answer to my adrenal function. But I feel CBD oil has many benefits overall to health.

But have you had the saliva test? I would be surprised if your doctor checked the cortisol that way rather than from blood which is useless.

Either way there is lots of evidence that optimal T3 can heal adrenals which I’ve been on for 20 months now. Based on my research, triggers & experience I believe my symptoms aren’t from being hypo but from still having ongoing hashimoto attacks and PTSD. Until I can get this under control then I’m limited in what more I can do, as I’m doing everything I can to heal myself.

A saliva test will make no difference to whether I use CBD oil or not. And if it benefits me, and others by sharing this post then all the better.

Also wanted to say that aspirin is the worst for Hashis! Anything NSAID is a no go as it promotes inflammation. I am also a migraine sufferer, sometimes for days non stop, so I completely get you... :( often they are driven by low blood pressure and coffee helps if not I go with sumatriptan, have you tried it? I also had a bad time with anxiety to the point of panic attacks when my dose was lowered by endo from 150 to 125. Are you 100% sure you’re levels are optimal?

I considered coffee being a possible trigger but avoided it for two weeks reintroduced and no change. Aspirin not ideal is the only way I can function as I’ve tried everything else available from my GP. I’ve had constant migraines now since February and have cutaneous allodynia. My TSH is suppressed and FT3 optimal.

Do you know if you are Th1 or Th2 dominant? I looked into CBD myself, my boyfriend even bought some, but did not go ahead using as I’ve read a lot that CBD can aggregate the immune response for those who are Th2 dominant, and I have not had that test done and certainly did not want to get worse.

Thanks you got me curious so I’ve just researched it. I’ve checked and never had my Immunoglobulin E (IgE) which I think indicates from what I’ve found whether I’m Th1 of Th2 dominant.

However the following site signifies that TH1 dominance is evidenced by Hashimotos and autoimmunity.

However I’m interested on your thoughts as to what this would be taking CBD oil? I have tried it before and found it helped even though it was only a couple of samples.

Hey! I’ve read that most of Hashis are Th1 dominant but many are Th2 dominant. It also possible to have both unbalanced. That is one of the reason not two Hashis are the same and different things work for different people. There are whole groups of products that stimulate Th1 and would make those Th1 dominant worsen but help those who are Th2 (echinacea, ginseng). And vice versa with Th2 stimulants (caffeine, green tea).

Although from what I’ve read and how I am personally I fit the TH1 dominance.

I’ve tried CBD oil before and even had some left over paste today and it suits me well. Tbh we could spend a fortune on so many different tests. I’m more of a “try it and see” type. With my sensitivities I find out pretty quickly if something works or not.

It is Th1 and Th2 cytokines panel you need to do to determine btw. Forgot to mention :)

I cannot really determine whether CBD would work for you or not, I tried it once and it didn’t feel right so I researched into it and stopped after what I read as I was bad enough. It wanting to make matters worse :)

So did you not try it for long enough to see if it worked for you? What works for one doesn’t necessarily work for everyone I agree but CBD oil is low recognised for its many benefits.

I tried it for 3 days. My boyfriend got a very expensive one from the US but I did not like its effect on me and I stopped while he used it for better sleep (he doesn’t have any health issues, just light sleeper). I agree that CBD oil is not widely recognised and can certainly help in a number of conditions but I’m sceptical about its application for Hashis.

Hi I’ve just posted asking if anyone uses CBD in a vape ? How are you getting on ? would you have any links please ? And does your CBD contain PG ? Many thanks Lynn
