CBD Oil and CFS Advice

Posted , 7 users are following.

My wife is suffering from what we think is CFS and we have tried many things over the course of the last year to alleviate her symptoms because a doctor has now only just referred her to a specialist.

Vitamin D, B12 injections, B12 vitamins, numerous other things but we are considering trying CBD oil, white label which is quite expensive but I want to get peoples opinion on it before we waste any money.

Has anyone suffering from Severe Fatigue, Headaches, body aching, low moods due to all of the above tried CBD oil not the Holland and Barret stuff, if so what was the outcome?  Did it help in anyway?

    Yes CBD oil is has been very effective for me. However the oil must have some THC to trigger the CBD. My daughter is a scientist. It's quite amazing that this one product can cover and help so many issues. I was on very serious medications for 18 years. I went off all of it and switched to THC products and I've had alot of manageable success. Since I'm already exhausted I use Sativa products for daytime and Indica for sleeping. The more Satvia I use the better I feel. I'm on this severe end of this disease and weed products have been life changing. Anything to keep me away from traditional doctors. If the product is CBD alone not the right product must have even a small amount of THC to work. Israel has been using weed for 60 years for everything. Read their studies on brain inflammatory disease and other uses. Very good information. Good luck.

      Hi Lisa

      I'm really glad to hear this has helped you. I was hoping you would be able to explain to me what it is you have used? I really don't understand the difference between cannabis / weed / cannabis oil / the cannabis product you can buy from Holland and Barrett.

      I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and I am really struggling to manage my symptoms. The worst thing at the moment is the fatigue. I will try anything and I'm really interested in how cannabis can help.

      Would you be kind enough to explain to me what it is you use and where you get it from?

      Also, are there any negative side effects of this?

      Thanks in advance

      hi there the oil thing can be very confusing. l live in Minnesota and they have a very good medical marijuana program. First off there are two types of CBD oil one with THC one without. The CBD oil without THC is from Hemp seed plant. Hemp seed has a very minimal medicinal product. not much at all . CBD oil with THC is from the actual flowering marijuana plant. That's what you need. The other hemp without THC is a waste of money.

    I believe that the use of cannabis oil has much more benefits for patients then the existing medicaltreatments. I have a very religious, straight laced friend who found his only relief for the terrible, headache to use cannabis oil

    It is amazing to me that I can one product for the dozen of extreme health issues I experience daily can help all of them. It's the only relief I have experienced in 20+ years. Why everyone isn't jumping on this seems crazy to me. ME is brain inflammatory disease. So it makes sense that a product that calms the nerve endings in the brain is effective for this type of disease. I'm actually seeing my pot doctor today. Going legal. I have been on dozens of medications through the years with horrible side affects that now have caused more permanent damage. I'm managing my life much better now. It feels freeing not having the crippling pain anymore. Works great for me.

    We have ordered two CBD brother products.  One has 25% CBD the other 30% CBD with a measure of THC.  One is Satica and one Indica.

    How often do you take these a day? Do you take anything else to control mood swings?

    My wife is really struggling just now.  She has been on 2 types of medication, fluxeotine and something else.  One made here more tired and the other more anxious.

    You want to start out slowly. The Satvia for me is the daytime one. You want to start out like 2mg. Just a small dose. She is going to feel tired at first till her body adjust and because your tolerance changes over time. Not a big deal. Once she adjust to it she will notice changes right away. Indica is very calming and great for severe pain and sleeping. Again start with small doses. It keeps you asleep so you don't wake up 50 times. Her sides affects will be a nap, a snack or laughing at your jokes. She will feel a sense of calm. Depression goes away pain is minimal. I have colitis diverticulitis gastritis and Crohn's. This helps keep things calm. I was on opioids for pelvic pain forever and never had any relief with this stuff. And I used to be an addiction specialist this is not addicting no matter what anyone says. It doesn't act in brain the same way opioids do. I cold turkey off those...now that's intense.

    She will have relief. Good job. Oh I'm legal now. Got my medical marijuana card. Not easy in this state has the most restricted laws in the country. But I have so much wrong me it took him five minutes to process me. Oh well! Good luck please feel free to contact me.
