Its like a vicious cycle.... knees to painful to walk but no walking seizes up the knees.
Thats great that it helped here.
Good stuff.
I’ve known many people being helped by the balm rgp.

I never said you didn't....I just said it didn't help me.

Which is why I asked the question about how often it is used by some of you.

Gary, and ?

Who ever has found relief using CBD balm . How often [daily] do you use the balm?

I tried it, felt no relief on application , using it twice p/day. Became disgusted, set it aside. Going to give it another try, just wondering what others practices are using it?
On my lower back when I need it
maybe 6 times a day when chopping wood
the relief is seconds after application

if you're not getting almost immediate relief, it ain't workin' for ya

Excuse me but you asked a question and I answered it.
Your question to which I answered was: Whoever had found relief using the CBD balm?

While I’ve never used it I used to go to a compassion club before I became licensed and they used to sell quite a bit of it.
Most of the compassion club members were women over 50.

Both my husband and I have used the GoGreen 1,000mg balm, on days we use it we apply it every 6 to 8 hours. We both have had good results with the balm and will buy it again. The oil doesn't work very well for us, so won't be getting that anymore.

I have returned to it a few times, for a few days. I get nothing. Gary @ one point said it should be 'almost' immediate relief , so I guess it just doesn't work for me period.

Keep in mind that my arthritis is pretty severe , so perhaps i was asking / expecting just too much from it?

Rgp, did you say that you used magnesium oil? I always have that on hand for muscle cramps and pain, worked wonders years ago for my Plantar Fasciitis.

I've been using it for 2 weeks now, I got the 600 strength from Fab. I can't honestly say it has done anything for my chronic back and shoulder pain. There might be some slight reduction in pain but not nearly as much as 2 Advil.

I had also hoped it would help with my anxiety, again noticed no significant results. I'll continue to use it and up the dose until I run out but unless I get a lot better results, will not reorder.

Yes, and i do use it, great stuff....more so when the muscle is inflamed and hurting. But even it really doesn't help much, when it is the joint itself causing the pain.

Odal touched on a fine point IMO...chronic pain.

I think perhaps the folks feeling relief from pain using the balm, are feeling relief from acute pain.

In the case of severe chronic pain , it seems, given all that I have tried , surgery or serious pain meds are about all that will help?

I've tried a couple strains of the oil but no help for my OA pain. And I'm not willing to spend a lot of money to keep trying. The salves I have which are 4-5 are so so, but to be honest Aspercreame with Lidocaine and the Ultra Tiger Balm are as good or better.

Topricin for pain is a favorite too.

I have neck and shoulder arthritis that causes chronic pain, which is worse sometimes than at other times, for no apparent reason. Anyway I use the 1000 CBD balm when it begins to bug me, not at regular intervals necessarily unless I'm having a bad flare up. It helps me pretty quickly -- doesn't make the pain go totally away, but takes the edge off. I've also got arthritis in my hands, but I don't use it on hands too much because either it gets on other things or gets washed off.

Do you mind sharing the 1000mg brand of balm...I use 500mg and add drops of DMSO to it but use this sparingly as it's pricey to use all over and I deal with OA bodywide.

I took hemp oil then switched to Cbd, 500 mg. Can’t see what either did for me. No pain relief at all. Back on hemp oil now. Hope I see some results soon.

I'm sure it has a lot to do with how chronic pain is in one's joints, my knee is pretty damaged and I'm seeing the D.O. next month and see if he thinks Prolo could help me anymore.

I struggle with wanting a knee surgery, had a minor one that makes me think things in there are worse.

We didn't see any results with the GoGreen CBD oil, but the one Butterfly uses, the 1,000mg balm does help relieve pain in specific areas, we still have almost a full tin, our second one purchased.

I tried it for psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia but got no pain relief using it. A good friend gets great results. It's worth a try so long as there are no drug interaction contraindications.

I saw some CBD gummies a while ago. Sheesh.
The company I purchase CBD products from usually sends me free samples of the different CBD gummies with my purchase. They taste pretty good, but I haven't noticed any difference after eating them. Most of them are a low dose approx. 10mgs.
