    Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the two most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant and has been proven effective in treating myriad health conditions. Unlike the more famous molecule, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is completely non-psychoactive.

    Someone close to me got off a 10 year Opiod prescription using CBD products. The only side effect was some weight gain. Probably from eating and pooping regularly. They are much happier and more clear headed.

    I have used CBD oils. Unlike smoking marijuana, you do not get high, and you do not get the munchies.

    I made no mention of munchies or getting high, but I can see where that may be assumed. A person with chronic costipation naturally eats less. Once off opiods thier digestive system started working again along with appetite.

    I've been using a cbd product that works well. I Keep having a kink in my shoulder and neck. Feels better within a few minutes. Used it on my sore fingers today too.

    But, every time I use it, I get really sleepy and usually take an unplanned nap. NH said it affects him the same.

    Maybe its not the cbd that's making you sleepy but the lack of pain that's allowing you to relax enough to sleep.

    Maybe I'm just tired.

    You might be right!

    I would never use Hemp Oil in any way, because it's illegal in my state. However, my... harrumph...good friend uses it around for joint pain. Also adds a little to the older dog's food (he has arthritis) and has seen positive results. Said "good friend" makes a drive to Nevada periodically to buy the stuff.

    I never thought it would be legalized in any form, but know some older people who have gotten great relief from using it. The one thing a 78 year old woman told me is that she takes one of the edible "pills" at bed time and sleeps so well. A good night's sleep is invaluable especially for someone who might not have been sleeping well for a while.

    My NH is using some high quality brand and he said it doesn't eliminate his pain, but it alleviates it combined with prescription pain meds. :(

    I was surprised it took my pain away.

    Try a different strain. That should help and take it after you eat.

    My wife takes the pills.
    10mg of CBD.
    Has helped her a lot.
    She doesn't have as much pain and she sleeps better.
    Prices vary greatly from store to store.

    If you live in an area where it is legal and know a grower you may be able to get the timings or scraps for free. Jazzy had some good recipes and info on how to remove most of the THC leaving the CBD. Like most things it is much more affordable if you make your own.
