    Anyone using hemp oil? 

    ​You who are using pot, have you noticed a consistent benefit or varying? Are you using a single strain or varying the type of pot you are using?

    ​For six months now I have been on hemp oil and have noticed an improvement in the use of my hands and arms, so much so that  the other dayI was able to make a pot of chicken soup and two pot pies with pastry from scratch, and I was in no pain and did not cry either. That is the most I have done with my hands in nearly three years. Instead of my hands and arms feeling like lobster claws they feel like chicken feet, crusty, (giggle).

    ​After 25yrs I stopped Betaseron in December 2016, because it was nolonger helping. The doc said it would take four months for the stuff to get out of my body. I did go through what I call rebound, though the drug company had no record of persons having that effect they did not have any records for persons who stopped the drug, like other drugs it probably should have been tapered instead of cold turkey. Then I began to get my brain back, the old me, the person I was comfortable with. It was like I felt my old self and knew how my brain was functioning. All these years I was doing things and had no idea how I was feeling about it. It was the old me before ms, so now my brain function is age 16 in a 70 yr old model T. I even laugh more. But that was not helping my hands and arms.  

    ​I remembered all the times i smoked pot and had a sense of well being, though it was not always the same, some 'highs' did not make me feel as good. My partner gave me a brochure he got from, www.I wantmyCBD.org and got curious with nothing to lose and pot not being legal in my state I gave it a shot. Now, advertising is advertising so i took it all with a grain of salt but with my pot experiences gave it a try. I dont know how long it will last or if it will improve over time, but I am pleased with the me I am right now, today. It is not perfect but is sure better than it has been in the last 50 yrs.

    ​I HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH ANY COMPANY OR PRODUCT AND THIS 'TESTIMONIAL' IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY.  I want as always for you to make and educated decision and to think for yourself for your own well being. I was willing to slide into oblivion and take no more drugs, only suppliments and still feel that way. Do not take my word for any of this, think for yourself. maria

    I use CBD strains for pain, neuropathy and my anxiety. It somehow make me feel more sober than when I am sober, I dont walk into walls or drop things or have as much vision issues when I use it. I use CBD lotion or balm for pain and spasms, and i use tinctures and smoke CBD strains as well. It also helps alot with my insomnia. I cannot have certain strains with high THC as my anxiety spikes. I try to stick to higher CBD and CBD oil and add it to teas and food. I think it should definitely be looked at closer  for use with MS and other chronic diseases.

    Hello, I do sometimes vape cbd oil which can help a bit . But after being on serval medications the only thing that seems to work in my case is cannabis. Unfortunately it’s illegal where i am as well but rules are changing in some countries. It may be that you just don’t have the right strain! In my experience some cannabis strains aren’t very affective,it’s just a matter of finding one that is.
    But weed is not for everyone.

    what is vape? I dont understand what that is.
  • weave4077
    Vape or vaperizing is an alternative way of consuming cannabis which involves no combustion. It generally gives a much less THC affect than combusting and is becoming more popular, maybe do a web search. Another option is to make cannabutter . My mother also has ms and is almost bedridden now ,she hates combusting weed (smoking) but says the cookies I sometimes make her are better than any meds she takes 🙂

    I am looking forward to some cannabutter on my toast. Vaping seems like, just having to buy another tool. I wonder if a regular vaporizor would work, probably not, would need a strainer, giggle. I use to make cookies. I know in the states where it is legal you can buy chocolate pot candy besides cookies. A whole new industry that is taxable and cheaper than illegal drugs, only took about fifty years, finally. Who says you cant have fun when you are ill?

    I am going to try cbd and possibly get into working with the company called HempWorx. Am getting a sample probably by Monday.

    The neuro today commented that there are people who are using the oil for relief from spasms.  I have increased the dose of the oil in drop form three times a day. It is temporary relief, definitely relief.

    There is full spectrum hemp oil which is natural and more expensive than synthetic. Google it for a full description.
