    Gary O', how often does a person need to use the CBD?
    As I understand it, and from my experience;

    The oil is more for internal stuff
    Put a half dropper under the tongue.
    Keep it there for 30-60 seconds (or ten seconds...all I care to do)
    Relief should come within minutes.
    I've taken it within a couple hrs, but it should last 2-4

    It really really helps my shingles (they're still with me, btw, but the pain is manageable)
    The itching...ho lee cow..I wanna take a tiny pitch fork, dig deep into my ear, and twirl it, for about an hour.
    The stage of shingles I'm in is 'post herpetic neurosis', or, as I understand it; fake pain senses sent to the brain from screwed up nerve ends, thanks to the shingles.

    I got the GoGreen 250mg as my local outlet didn't have it in any greater strength.
    I did get another brand (Healthy Roots) the dealer recommended, in 1000mg....not the same, makes my wife a bit spiritually numb, whereas the GoGreen 250 noticeably buoys her spirits.

    I have just seen that the 500 and 1000mg can be ordered directly at GoGreen, of which I may just do, but the 250mg has pretty much done it for me, at a lessor price.

    The balm is for local, more exterior, miseries
    Just rub enough on yer forefingers to feel it, and massage into the area for 20-30 seconds
    Relief should come within minutes
    It has really been effective in my lower back area
    I've also used it within a couple hrs

    The dealer says I can't OD on the stuff
    But
    common sense needs to rule



    Hope this helps

    Please let me know how it works.
    If it doesn't, you'd be the first.
    Are you talking about the Go Green Eucalyptus and Lavender Balm Salve as featured here:

    I have osteoarthritis in my knuckles. Quite painful sometimes and I'd like to try something besides acetaminophen, which doesn't work all that well anyway.

    Thanks!

    Looks to be one and the same
    ours is 'calming puple', of which contains lavender and bee's wax
    not sure why the 'flavors'

    Yeah, I've OD'd on ibuprofen for years to ease my back pain, and hanging on a tree limb.

    Now?

    I keep two of those little tins in the cabinet (have yet to use up the first tin, bought months ago)

    Thanks for the info. You've bought this at a local dispensary?

    Yes

    For the CBD (only trace THC), it's not termed a dispensary.
    Just an outlet, or store.
    Heh, it's all in limbo til the feds can get their grips on it somehow

    I can’t seem whom to order it from. Amazon doesn’t have it. Want to try it on my back.

    I concur with everything Gary said regarding the balm, it works great. I just ordered two more cans of the 1000mg Calming Purple. Wife and I use it for arthritis pain and anything else that hurts. We try to keep an extra can on hand so we don't run out.

    Anyone ordering on Gogreenhemp.com try using "first" or "new" in the discount code box for 15% off. They also have free shipping for orders over $80 I believe.

    I used something called Jungle Balm which is pure Lawang oil from Indonesia. I had my left thumb started to lock up on me to the point I had to move it with my right hand. I don't claim it was arthritis. After a couple weeks of applying three times per day all symptoms were 100% gone, no pain and free movement and it has been 7-8 months and going strong. This oil does not describe what is for rather only to apply and wash hands after but it worked for me. It came in a 50ml bottle but I don't recall the price. www.junglebaum.com.au

    Well so far....it has had no effect . Been using it for 2+ days on one shoulder & one knee....no change. I have it now so, might as well keep trying it. I'll try to reach my 'back-spots' .........maybe it's geographical?...

    Edit to say...I was referring to the CBD Balm.

    Gary, I just received my first bottle of the CBD hemp oil, 1,000mg. The directions say to use one dropper per day. Do you put a half dropper under the tongue for sublingual rapid effect, then swallow it when you can no longer keep it there? Do you use another half dropper, and if so, do you put that in a glass of water and take it that way?

    I bought this for my husband, he's had long-term issues with leg muscles and hips, due to old injuries and likely adhesions. I'm going to give him the oil this evening. He's still using the 1,000 mg balm and is happy with the results, he uses that on his recent shoulder injury and intermittent knee pain. He's keeping it in his night table so it's there when he wants it. If it works well, I'll be getting more of both forms.

    Good to hear it's working for you too Jim, I plan to order the balm again and have it on hand for either of us to use when needed. If my husband gets good results with the oil, I'll get more of that too.

    I ordered some today hoping it will help my wife's shoulder pain (arthritis). Let you know how it goes.
    We are either growing or dying.

    Yes


    I've been doing half droppers when needed.
    Seems the dropper that comes with the bottle can only fill half way anyway.
    Last night I sorta OD'd on it (even though I've been told one can't), did three half droppers within four hours tween 10p and 2a.
    Rough night.
    Slept in the chair a bit.

    No, I don't take it with water. I've been told it doesn't dilute the dosage, but does slow down the action, or rapid effect (there's that word again).
