Last month I wrote a post on CBD Oil as a possible pain reliever for the arthritis I suffer from in my hands. Before you read the current post, I wish you would go back and check out the original from January 18. It is from Medical News Today and has lots of good information in it. This is a quote from that post “CBD is a type of cannabinoid, which is a chemical found in cannabis plants. Unlike delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another chemical found in cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means it does not change a person’s mental state or produce a “high” as THC can.”
So, now you know what it is, and isn’t. You can’t get high using this stuff.
On to my
experiment experience with it. Of course I went to Amazon because that is where you buy anything. And, of course, they had lots of it. Keep in mind that one can use this oil topically, rubbing it on the skin, or internally, drinking it. Being the human guinea pig, I felt safer with the topical use.
So, it arrived in a day or two and I have been using it ever since. I simply take off the lid and press my hand against the opening and tip the bottle over briefly. I replace the lid and rub my two hands together to spread the oil over the parts of my hands that hurt. Inside of a minute or two I do experience some relief from the pain. I will do this several times in the course of a day. After several weeks of this procedure, I have noticed no side effects. If something occurs in the future I will post further on it.
At this point I see no ill effects and some positive ones from rubbing CBD Oil on my arthridic hands. As you can see from the picture below there are other uses. If you do try it for anything, please share your results with the blog.
