Advice about using CBD for pain relief

I know about this thread rfd-cannabis-thread-aka-marijuana-forma ... 1-2221142/ but would like to discuss just THC.

I have alot of pain in my legs and was wondering if TCH would help. I am a school bus driver and of course, I can't drive high so marijuana is off the table.

I am looking for first hand knowledge on this.

I don’t know where to begin.

If marijuana is off the table then so is THC.

THC is what gets you high which is why they don’t want you to drive and get high.

CBD people use for pain relief and it won’t get you high. I don’t think it does anything though. Worth a try.


Marijuana has both THC and CBD

Go to ocs and buy concentrated CBD or THC depending on what you want to achieve.

I’m the end both of them will distract you from the paid I guess, THC is more fun

Pain in your legs can be caused by many things
It can also be a precursor/ signal of a bigger health issue lurking in the wings
(Diabetes, Nerve Damage, Joint Issues, Circulatory Problems etc )
Need to go to a Dr and get checked out

Whenever I hear of leg pain, I am reminded of this story

I was checked for Circulatory Problems. It was ok. Have been on meds for nerve pain for over 2 years, not helping. Had bloodwork done, not diabetic.
I do, however have arthritis in both knees.

Sorry i just assume your in Ontario (the only place that matters)

Ocs = Ontario canabis store.

Buy some CBD concentrates perhaps in vape form total investment is less than $40
(25 for the cartridge and 10 for the battery).

You could also do concentrated drops.

It’s all subjective man. For under $40 you will have your answer.

Edit:
I know we’re not talking THC anymore, but just a warning if you have a history or family history of schizophrenia then do not do THC at all.

Joint issues suck.
I definitely felt better after my knee replacement.
Likewise all the folks I have known to have hip replacements

I was really messed up before I had my surgery
Much better now

Don’t have severe arthritis … yet
But it’s prob coming (runs in my family )

These days I try to walk a lot / stay active
So as to ward off the inevitable
Dr says chances are high I’ll see at least one other replacement surgery in my lifetime
*sigh*

Getting old sucks
But it still beats the alternative

I use this for arthritis in my knees, it works great. The combination THC/CBD work best for pain/swelling. I only need to use it for a few months and then I dont touch it for months. Its cream and a little goes a long ways, it wont get you high.

This

Buy your CBD / weed products from a Govt of Canada approved store.
Then at least you know what you are getting

Buying anywhere else … is still illegal & risky health wise

CBC Marketplace did a show this week on CBD Products :

Have you tried RMT? Back (spine and/or muscles) issues can cause leg pains. I get severe leg pains some times and a few sessions with a *good* RMT fixes it.

Then goto a walkin clinic.

Weed is legal now, there is no more taboo going to any doctor in Canada and ask for a referral...

Stop making things dramatic

Seriously? Doctors don't do cannabis because there is not much available in the way of scientific studies that demonstrate efficacy and provide standard dose guidelines. The best you can hope for is a benign smile and the suggestion that you start at the lowest strength and work up. You won't get a scrip or referral.

Seriously... that's why I said ask for a referral. Then the Dr can refer the OP to someone who deals with medical marijuana.

I mean... that's the whole reason we have the medical marijuana sector right ? ...
