Hello and yes, I've used CBD oil, cream and gel for sometime now.  I have neck and shoulder pain and the gel is wonderful for this as it's cooling with menthol and eucalyptus so it calms the area down quickly.  I use cream for my swollen knuckles on my hands.  This helps a lot as it's thick and has bees wax so it stays on.  I put in on at bedtime as with all of this stuff you have to be careful to not touch your eyes or blow your nose (they all have other ingredients that can be irritating to the mucus membranes).

Hope this helps!

Lucy

Genuinely hope it helps you ss2343. The proof is there that CBD has offered simple relief to so many of us. The coffee was a godsend to me. I have always loved a great cup of coffee but I don't love the flavor of most of the CBD oils I have tasted whatsoever.

Based on your advice, I researched this and decided to try some for my low back pain which they say is osteoarthritis, but causes so much more discomfort than my rheumatoid arthritis. I hope I am one of those people it helps!

Thanks for the info on the coffee+hemp.  I have not tried it, but I think good coffee is a special treat.  Lots of responses to CBD, which is great as we are a very large voting group and maybe help make some changes in the future.  For all of you, please dont give up.  We all need to make a difference regarding the opiod crisis.

When I was out golfing this morning we ended up playing with a fine couple that was nearly as bad as we are. The gentleman and his wife were quite nice and he was the very conservative career military type. I was very surprised when I asked him what he was putting on his hands and he said it was CBD! After a couple of holes of conversation on the subject we learned that he finds it very usefull but his wife doesn't get the same result using it as he. We shared experiences and I told him about this conversation here. Our opinions on the topic were very similar and he offered to let me try some of his salve. I am new to a salve but did apply some to my hands as he did. My knuckles alway ache late in my round of golf and it certainly did give me some relief. What I can now say by comparison is that the salves do work in the area you apply them. It was nice. But it  did not offer the full body support that I get from the coffee. The coffee, or oils even for that matter, are soothing to the whole body. The salve was great for a spot but I did not give the whole body relief. CBD has potential for many of us and hope this story is a help if you are on the fence.

I have been keeping up with this conversation and some have said to start with a high dose and work your way down. This is contrary to most of my research on the subject. Most of the experts  recommend starting low and work your way up as necessary. I find that a 10 milligram of CBD coffee pod is ample for me once and sometimes twice a day. So I am not sure if the ones recommending starting with a high dose are doing it so you use more? My wife and I always try to be thrifty.

On being thrifty, I did reach out to Subduction Coffee to see if they could offer AARP members a permanant discount as they do for service members. I recieved a nice reply saying that they thought it was an excellent idea and they would try to put something together. He did offer a coupon code for new customers " New2Subduction " for any that are interested.

I found an interesting place that sold CBD Topical cream.  They said it's good for pain, trauma on your body and headaches.

Well, when, I had a slight, very small headache I put some on and was surprised that it vanished pretty quickly but on larger headaches it couldn't work, so we'll.

When,, I fell and bruised my foot, oh, my goodness what a difference.  The pain disappeared so quickly.  My foot had so much trauma.  I mean I was skeptic about this product but it made me become a believer.

All it has is Hemp oil,Shea butter,and coconut oil.

I use it whenever I have pain in my muscles, when I work out.  No drug has ever worked so quickly.  You just massage it in.

Everybody has to try it, this really works!!

Yes I have tried and now use a topical CBD. My experience with a broad spectrum CBD salve came from a second-hand recommendation which originated from a 91-year young lady bingo player!

 

Seems her adult children purchased the salve for her to use to combat the inflammation, pain from arthritis and it worked like nothing else ever had.

 

My complaint was/is (left) Achilles tendon tendonitis (self diagnosed).

 

Cold packs would provide temporary relief. So too a therapeutic massage with simple moisturizing skin lotion. At the recommendation of a friend I bought and tired an OTC ointment that was supposed to make me ‘all flexible’. Again, very temporary pain relief.

 

What did I have to lose trying the CBD salve? Nothing.

 

As a major skeptic, and going forward mostly to dispel this CBD mumbo-jumbo, I bought and tried the product.

 

Lasting relief following application. It has not `fixed’ my A.t. problem, so I’m cautious not to overdue activities, but there are times when my pain level is ZERO for hours after an application.  

 

I purchased a second jar for my girlfriend as she has constant nagging pain from bone spurs in her neck. Again, notable and lingering pain relief following an application.

 

Again, it didn’t `fix’ her bone spurs but gives her far more pain relief than BIG Pharma’s Opioid (oral) pain killers!

 

Not ALL CBD `oils or lotions’ are created equal. Buyer beware. Research the products…

I bought several bottles of the oil that you put under your tongue for a minute. These were from reputable dealers and FDA inspected. I spent nearly $200 trying all the various CBD oils. None of them did anything for me. I suffer from paid from having multiple broken bones, a spinal fusion and arthritus and none of it wrked at all in alleviating any pain. I also tried the salve with no relief felt with that either. I was really hoping it would help, but no luck and now I am back to OTC meds

That Charlotte’s Web salve I got from Amazon works like a charm. If you haven’t tried this stuff, don’t knock it.
