CBD (cannabis Oil)

Posted , 11 users are following.

Has anyone tried CBD oil for BPH or any other prostate issues? I have read a couple of positives articles and am thinking of giving it a shot. Seems to be pricey but worth it if it has some beneficial success....Billy

    What have you read? What do you do? Drink it? Apply it topically?

    It has some amazingly beneficial properties and is being used for some very difficult conditions.

    I tried CBD oil (one vial) - more to see if it would help with back pain than anything else.

    Did some research, ordered what was suppose to be one of the more reliable brands which was quite expensive for such a small amount. Took it according to directions but noticed absolutely no difference in anything.

    Personally, I'm skeptical and like most supplements, there is little other than anecdotal evidence that I've seen, to support it.

    You got me thinking. I've used DMSO with great success for inflammation of the tendons from running, specifically plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis. I've gone from painful to no pain whatsoever after one application of DMSO.

    It penetrates and reduces inflammation. I was thinking it should work for prostatitis. So I google it and found an interesting article that said relief was found when injected by catheter up the uretha to the prostate area. Fascinating. Google DMSO and Prostate

      Have you ever been prescribed Cipro or Fluoroquinolones for prostate or urinary related issues ?

      Plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis can be caused by them or they can return when the drugs are later prescribed without having again injured the tendons.

    DMSO was banned years ago and is not legally available today. Experimenting on yourself can be dangerous.

      I buy DMSO at health food stores. CDB oil is available at the same places and head shops.

      All I know is what I read off google.

      If you google "DMSO and prostate" you find a medical study that I referenced.

      If you google "CDB and prostate" you don't find much but articles talk about more research needed for this promising yada yada.

      I've read a lot about DMSO and I use it for running injuries, mostly tendinitis. Do your own reading and research. I think the risks are overblown. But everyone needs to make up their own mind.

      Ban was lifted in 1966. This is from the NYT archives:

      WASHINGTON, Dec. 22 The Food and Drug Administration announced today it would allow doctors to resume using DMSO on human patients in research studies provided the controversial drug was given under strictly controlled circumstances.

      Strictly controlled circumstance means when there is no other suitable drug for a

      serious condition as also now applies to Cipro and Fluoroquinolones . Bayer sent letters to all American doctors to that effect over two years ago.

      UK pharmacists have had warnings issued by the EMA ( European Medicines Agency) recently on Cipro and Fluoroquinolones and all British doctors will be getting letters later this month.

      DSMO (Dimethyl sulfoxide) is a tiny molecule {two methyl groups (2 carbon atoms) plus a sulfur atom and an oxygen atom}. So tiny that your immune system does not see it and it passes harmlessly out of the body. It is a solvent (like any detergent) and as such can dissolve through your skin (a lipid membrane) which is how it can be used medically. One side of the molecule (the water soluble side) will attach to just about any drug and the other side (the oil soluble side) will carry the drug through your skin into your interstitial fluid.

      So the reason it can be dangerous is that anything it touches can possibly be carried into your body through your skin. You only need to use care not to use, say colored towels which have dye in them. Also be sure to wash the area with fresh water when you are done before putting on your colored clothes. Other than that I'd say it is harmless in reasonable quantities.

      I use it sometimes to "push" aspercream into a sore joint but it can also act as an anti-inflammatory on a local level. The DSMO will simply penetrate the area, attach to any water molecules nearby (which are attached to the inflammatory chemicals in the sore joint) and defuse the complex away from the joint and out of your body.

      The reason it was "banned" was actually due to the fact that it was never approved by the FDA for human use (it has been used for ever in horse liniment). Why? Because it is super cheap as a byproduct of making wood pulp in paper manufacturing. Since it is so cheap and plentiful there is no drug company willing to spend the massive amount of money needed to run human trials. And if some company did run the trials they would never recover their expenses because it is so cheap to make!

      We know your question. I'd love the answer too. I wasn't trying to hijack your thread. You should google it and look for medical journal articles. I didn't find much but I didn't look very long. You should also consider maybe other boards? Holistic healing boards specializing in CDB? Just spitballing here...
