I noticed a few others as well as yourself have said it helps with neuropathic pain.
I find this very puzzling because generally it is known that cannabis does not help neuropathic pain.
I used to smoke cannabis at night, getting it from whatever source I could. I am not a smoker,
I smoked it, not to directly tackle the pain, but as a means of getting to sleep despite the pain (and the pain actually increased when I smoked - apart from one type, definitely skunk, bright green but an easy smoke and unusually not heightening the pain.
I found i had to really concentrate on not allowing to let my thoughts become distressing but to go doown the other route of pleasant thoughts and also relaxation breathting and countdown from 10 to let it take me to sleep.
As it’s a muscle relaxant it actually increased how often I needed to urinate at night.
It didn’t help pain directly so there was no temptation to smoke in the day.
It probably helps with spactisity but my main pain is intense neuropathic burning both legs and feet.
My palliative care consultant got me Sativex, which I only use at night and it generally helps get me to sleep, not directly addressing the pain, but I do not necessarily all through the night.
I sometimes take Lorazepam in the evening if my pain is making me feel frenzied and as that is a relaxant it helps my body release some tension as the body tenses so much in extreme pain and that actually heightens it.
I have no idea why you, and others think CBD oil helps with your neuropathic pain and bladder function - this is counter to my experience of cannabis and sativex. And to official guidance, which also says it can help with spasticity but is not useful for neuropathic pain.
It may depend what the symptoms people are experiencing that they classify as neuropathic pain and to it’s severity.
Mine is extreme and I am on lots of meds, which are probably making no difference, but I guess there’s a niggle - say they are a bit and it gets even worse if I come off? I am trying to wean off them - particularly the 12mg (twice the top rate) of Pregaline. This is a nasty drug. I have used it for… I cant even remember how many, probably 10 years. I also take Lacosomide and quinine.
So my question to you and others, if thats ok, is where do you get this high content CBD and do you take orally?
I’m just going to open another thread about cannabis and Big Pharma
