    Cbd oil and arthritis pain

    I saw CBD oil mentioned on the shingles thread, and I wondered -- has anyone here tried it for arthritis pain, and has it helped? I have fairly significant pain in my hands and shoulders from arthritis. A friend of mine mentioned to me the other day that she was going to try the CBD oil. I've looked online and there are a zillion different kinds, with all kinds of claims, and all of them seem a bit pricey.

    I would be very grateful to hear your experiences with it, and what brands you recommend. I am quite hesitant to take the regular medical arthritis pain stuff, like celebrex, et el., because reported side effects and friends' negative experiences with those drugs.

    I have tried it, no help for me. I used all three strengths recommended. 500mg $40 / 750mg $60 & 1000mg $90 Used it in the manner directed on the label. Half a dropper under the tongue , three times per day, tried it for three full months, increasing the strength each month. Bought a forth 750mg & tried it topically..[mostly on my knees & shoulders]...again no help.........sorry to say.

    The brand was Queen City Hemp,

    Not knocking the product...just saying that it did not work for me.

    You might try GoGreen (there's many brands out there, some are just oil)
    and the balm if local pain, like joints, hands

    Well...on your word, I will try it.

    But to be fair, this product [Queen City Hemp] does seem to have a good reputation.

    Since you've had Zero effect, I'd recommend the GoGreen balm, not the oil.
    Just dab enough on your finger to feel it, not see it.
    Massage into the pain filled area for about a minute.

    Please let me know how it works.
    If it doesn't, you'd be the first.

    I assume you were / are talking the 1000mg strength? Just now ordered it, will give it a try as soon as it arrives.

    Since my hips are a larger source of the pain, I thought the stronger would penetrate better?....

    We'll see...Thanks.

    Not arthritis, but the balm worked well for my husband's minor shoulder injury and some knee pain he was having, 1,000 mg....plan to buy the oil soon to keep on hand for either of us if needed.

    I just ordered one bottle of the orange oil, 1,000mg. The balm worked well, if the oil is good too, it's worth the price to relieve pain. Thanks for your advice Gary!

    The oil has worked wonders on my shingles in the evening, and my lady's overall discomfort....including mental outlook.

    Please advise how it works for you

    and you're quite welcome

    I plan to order some -- can't decide between the balm or the oil.

    Gary O', how often does a person need to use the CBD?
