    Ok so I thought Maria said 1000 mg and I thought I ordered that dosage but I received 2 2500 mg bottles instead and let me tell you I was afraid of ingesting it so I just rubbed it on my spine and my left shoulder and it's like day and night but unfortunately it does wear off after about 5-6 hour's. But what a miracle compared to before I couldn't even really walk or lift my legt arm up in the air. Not to mention being able to walk further than my front porch. So I can say for sure that it's really working been able to go around my yard with my Canadian crutches and it's been a long time since I've been able to even go out with my walker to my porch. I couldn't even make it to my front gate before unless I was using my power scooter!

    100 MG UNDER THE TONGUE, it comess with an eye dropper? fill it and squirt then wait a while to see if there is relief, think about increasing if you are comfortable doing that. Under the tongue is the fastest way for it to be absorbed. Glad that rubbing it on works too, I have a cream but never thought about using the oil that way, must give it a try too.

    Isnt it nice to have temporary relief! It is great it is working for you. You can keep applying it as often as you want. hooray and thank you very much for trying it and letting us know it is working for you, good news is always great to hear.

    Yes but my stupidity I ordered the wrong thing and this stuff does work great! But then when I feel so good I over do it and make myself worse. I was wondering do you get sick to your stomach from it as well at times?

    Allergies make me sick to my stomach. Have you tried less more often? Do you keep it under your tongue as long as possible before swallowing? I switched to the capsules and/or the gummy bears because under the tongue is too complicated for me, i am always in a hurry to do nothing. Maybe eating a piece of bread before the oil may help you or plenty of water after the oil.  Maybe ice cream, lol. You taking it at night or during the day?

    Actually I still only use it on my skin. I looked on eBay and Amazon for the lower dose but really had a hard time. But I've been having these stomach issues for a long time even before the hemp oil or smoking pot. I think it's just from the MS. I was doing pretty good on Friday and Saturday I actually was doing good too. But I got over heated on Saturday. I was helping my caregivers son with his car witch was not something I could've done before so I know that it's helping. I could even get around with my Canadian crutches while using the oil witch I haven't been able to do other than after steroid treatment. So I'm so grateful for your advice about that oil. But something about me as that I always winde up overdoing it when I fill good. Always have been this way. So Sunday I fell asleep about 2 in the afternoon then I believe I woke up for a few hours afterwards but was staying in bed then back to sleep. Then I woke up about 12 something at night and the last time a woke was about 350 in the morning. The pain kept waking me up. But I got a shower this morning and then had my nephew put more on my back and I was doing ok for about 4-5 hour's but I'm really feeling worse again. I have to just start to take it slower from now on.

    Hello bird, As long as you know you are overdoing it you can at least plan to ahve a good time. Satisfaction is sometimes worth a pain in the butt, lol. As long as you ahve a good time it is sometimmes worth it. Keep having fun, so we can appreciate your successes.

    Thank you very much. Yes I'm trying to get around more so I can fix up my house. And I do enjoy the satisfaction when I can get things done. It's just really hard for me. But yes when I'm feeling good enough to I really try hard at times and it's always the same I end up in agony but then it's ok. Because at least I get a little satisfaction out of it.

    For years now my right hand goes before my left, (have is always dyslexic) and I forget to see it. Here on the farm we are trying to let a lot of the grass go au natural because of all the erosion but there is still plenty to mow, but instead of doing a little each day I do my share of mowing in one day because it looks better when it is all done, and I feel emotionally better when it is neat, but boy do I suffer afterwards. It looks nice and flat but it is really all bumpy and my whole body gets beat up, but that is what I do. The day after I talk to myself for hours trying to talk myself out of taking pain meds, but boy does it hurt, two days later and sitting is a task in itself, I wish I had a pool with some noodles so I could float all day and night. Better still I wish we had someone we could hire to do the mowing, lol. So I could sit and be annoyed about the noise. Motorcycles and farm equipment should have mufflers for those of us who cant stand all the droning noise. I wear ear protection when I mow, and a face mask because I am allergic to everything in Missouri, and a big hat because of the sun. I should have someone take my picture so you can see how funny I look, but I digress.  Round about the third day after mowing I am moving a little, then of course I ahve to mow again. But as you say, satisfaction sometimes is worth the pain. Choosing priorities is sometimes a choice of satisfaction over pain because the ego needs it more.
