Default CBD and arthritis

Just curious if anyone else has tried this. It seems to be working! When my diet goes to hell, like it has been lately, my arthritis flares. But the CBD drops (sublingual) seem to be helping a lot.

Just FYI: It a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. Bless you CA for legalizing.

My sister is worse off than I am and she was super happy with it.

I have read a lot on the benefits of CBD. Especially since you have arthritis flare ups, cbd is known to have effects of anti-inflammatory. I know a few friends that swear by it because it is also supposed to have great health benefits like regulating blood sugar and benefiting your cardiovascular system.

Do you have to have a prescription for the drops or you just go by umm the pot store? Yesterday I saw a news story that the government has studied and proven that it is a very effective pain reliever. I have numerous broken parts I'd like to try it on.

No prescription necessary, just walk into a pot shop. You might call first to make sure they have some. Here in Portland, where it is also legal, there is a store that exclusively sells CBD products; they don't sell any THC at all.

https://cbd-hempstore.com/

Call them to see if they can ship to your location.

Massachusetts is still dragging their heels on implimenting the voters wishes---- other controls put in place that have not been met..... so no shops open that I have heard.

I'm curious, Ms. A. You mean Mass. Gov't added regulations in addition to the ones in the voter initiative passed by The People? Does the language of the initiative provide authority to the State to decree such amendments?

My sister uses this, for Sjogren's Syndrome, an auto-immune disease that involves a lot of inflammation. She thought it was great until she woke up one night in a panic attack (not her usual thing). So she found she can't take a certain amount every day, but has to use it intermittently.

She lives in Mi. We have a medical marijuana law here, but she didn't need to go through that. Just bought it in a store.

I recently got some CBD oil, but since I have no aches and pains it's hard to tell if it's effective.

Interested in knowing of successes of others.
