    CBD Oil - Official Thread

    Talk to me about how and why you use it and what products you like and don't like!


    I posted some questions in the marijuana thread but the conversation there is pretty narrowly focused so I thought perhaps we needed a separate thread for CBD oil.



    ************************************************** ***********


    Here's my story:

    I'm just starting to get into CBD oil for general body aches and pains that come with age and doing physical work. Started with pure CBD oil at night before bed in some herbal tea and had a great nights sleep with minimal discomfort in the morning (better than when I would take two Advil plus 1 ex strength Tylenol).

    This is my main reason for trying CBD Oil: lower back generally aches on an off but it's worse when I sleep. I get stiff from laying in one position and if I roll or move in my sleep the discomfort/ache/pain will wake me and I have trouble getting back to sleep. Yoga has helped greatly but I need just a bit more help which is why I've turned to CBD oil.

    My next step after the straight oil is to try one with a microdose of THC which is supposed to enhance the CBD. I haven't tried it yet but just picked up this product:


    Fairwinds Ratio 5:1 Tincture

    The 5:1 ratio is an effective blend of CBD and THC, containing sufficient amounts of both cannabinoids for a diverse array of support. This ratio provides a functional, clear-minded balance to those sensitive to THC.


    I'm a stoner from way back though I don't smoke anymore (my lungs get assaulted enough from dirt/dust/bad air) so I'm sticking with the "start low, go slow" protocol with regard to edibles containing THC.

    For people who have dogs that are scared of fireworks or thunderstorms, the CBD products can help a lot. Still better to sit there with a bunch of hot dog bits to make the fireworks fun if you can, but a lot of people don't have a chance to set off enough to really get the dog ok with them. Same for the thunderstorms unless you live somewhere like the front range in summer.

    Topical salve works quite well for some. If anyone wants details speak up otherwise I won't bore everyone with a wall of words.

    KQ, i like ac/dc which is a good mix of thc to cbd ratio.
    i know a very cost effective way to ingest the perfect amount of decarboxylated oil to meet your exact standards and needs.
    fortunately for us in Washington, rso products are sold by the gram for peanuts compared to the ‘gummies’ & infused product.
    we also have a good source for information from Nopostholio, who like yourself, suffers from chronic back pain and has found a cbd regiment that has helped him immensely.
    PM me if you want specific specific recipes

    CBD Oil - Official Thread

    Love AC/DC over here also. Harl-Tsu as well-> we have two lady's going of H-Tsu. Our other two are also high CBD but I can't recall the name.


    I'll write out our salve making process later if someone wants. But like Bobby said it's pretty simple-> basically just bubble hash mixed with coconut oil.

    Two specifics are not to be taken likely from a stoner that knows how to bake. That means they are super serious about the process.

    My step mother has had MS for about 20 years. She had never smoked pot and has no desire to get high. As the MS got worse the pain got worse, and she was eventually prescribed opiates. The opiates were of course not ideal. She stopped the opiates and switched to pure CBD oil. It helped but wasn't strong enough at times. She is now on a 1:1 CBD/THC oil, and it is the most effective pain relief she has ever had.

    I know KQ doesn't have MS, just sayin'

    My friend and her mother use a topical and like it. Maybe you need to go into business and help an old girl out

    I've tried of handful of the non-thc CBD's and I'm unconvinced of their effectiveness for me. The CBD cream has been awesome though. Had shoulder and bicep surgery about 9 weeks ago and the cream is a life-saver.

    Following this thread. I'm curious about CBDs not for pain but for anxiety.

    Was a stoner years ago too but the last time I had a toke - pretty recently - I really hated how it made me feel. It actually increased my anxiety. I don't want to do that.

    I have asked lots of peeps if getting that kind of high is a risk with CBD's but have never really had a clear answer.

    Using the dog example, CBDs do anecdotally seem to help many dogs with anxiety issues. I have known people with severe social anxiety who say that CBD helps them. But, with people you don't tend to hear as much from the ones who aren't helped. If it were me, CBD products are fairly affordable and for myself I would try them if severe anxiety were an issue.

    I haven't heard of people feeling paranoid or otherwise anxious from CBD.

    This is what I have found as well after buying in OR, CO, and some non-thc CBD in SLC.

    I use it for soreness and inflammation after climbing (especially on longer trips). I feel less achy and it's replaced ibuprofen for that. I also use it before bed and I think it's made a difference in my ability to fall and stay asleep as well as the quality of the sleep I get.

    My girlfriend uses it for the same and she has some rub stick that we use for acute pain. She's used the transdermal patches and thinks they work the best for whole body aches and pain.

    Looks like I really need to try the topical. The straight oil before bed is def. helping me sleep better and awake more rested but I still have a hitch in my lower back. Probably from bucking that 2t of hay and the fact that I've fallen off my 3x week yoga. I still need to try they CDB+THC tincture I bought yesterday but I'm going to finish the straight oil first. I running my own personal "clinical trial." LOL!

    I can give you my clear answer: CBD oil does not get you high if you use a product derived from Hemp. I have not tried CBD oil derived from marijuana yet.

    I've done a lot of reading lately on this and these are a few of the articles that I found helpful.

    What is CBD (Cannabidiol) And What Does It Do?

    7 Benefits and Uses of CBD Oil (Plus Side Effects)

    Finding The Optimal Therapeutic Ratio Of THC And CBD

    CANNABIS DOSING

    Someone posted this up thread - lots here to read, haven't gotten through it all yet:

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but FWIG hemp is just a strain of sativa and CBD is CBD regardless of the strain it came from.
