Has anyone tried this?
Hi, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis 10yr. ago. I stumbled onto CBD about 18 mo. ago. (Before that I had never heard of it). I had heard that it was wonderful for dogs with arthritis so I began researching it for humans. After a few months I decided I had nothing to lose by trying it (since it has NO side effects). I started the drops twice a day and, honestly, didn't notice anything to speak of. I adjusted the dosage as recommended. I was halfway through the 2nd bottle when it dawned on me that I was sleeping well and my hips and knees didn't hurt like they used to. If you have any questions, let me know. I can only say that I will never let it run out !!
I live in Ontario Canada. THC Cannabis Oil and CBD cannabis oil are both legal. Personally iv tried to deal with the pain of Osteoarthritis and Oesteoporosis with the least amount of medication possible. I did take Fosamax for several years, but when checking the density it had only come up by a point or so. After some serious research I have gone to a medical Dr. And was evaluated...then I tried CBD oil (no hallucinogic reactions ) to this oil. It helped to reduce anxiety and a general overal calm with less pain. Then I tried the THC. That you have to be very careful with as each person accepts it differently. It could make you high very quickly if not careful. I have since been taking only 1 mg before bed. It reduces pain and I get a much better sleep at night. The side effects are non existant. So much better then addictive pain drugs.
Although it's a challenge to move my body because of pain, I find that weight bearing exercise and stretching has significantly helped me deal with pain.
I hope this blog is helpful to others? Take good care!
CBD, whether oil or edible, is not some magical "something" that fixes us up over-night. Actually, it works with our Endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis ( balance) in our bodies. For pain relief in our joints or muscles, there is a CBD and emu cream that helps almost immediately. But regular CBD is a long-term answer to a long-term issue like osteo arthritis and osteoporosis. I've been taking it for over a year now and I can feel some real improvement. Hope this helps someone!
I have osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. I have chosen not to take any of the meds for osteoporosis because, 1. I already have tremendous bone loss in my jaw. and 2. I've never been able to take replacement hormones due to adverse side effects.
I take a little calcium, Vitamin D, Vitamin K and natural progesterone cream daily. Along with eating more foods with calcium.
Earlier this year I had to stop taking ibuprofen for pain because it is now messing with my kidney function. I have gotten epidural injections in my cervical and lumbar spine, which didn't last long. My pain management doctor would not give me an injection in my thoracic because he said my pain is both bone and nerve and that wouldn't help. I also found out through an X-ray that my severe pain was caused by an anterior wedge at T7 and T8.
Since I refuse to go down that opiate pain med rabbit hole, I decided to give medical marijuana a try. I am fortunate to live in Florida where it is legal.
I have been using for a number of months now. While it does not completely alleviate all pain. I have a lot of improvement and the pain is bearable. I don't like to be "high." It took a while to figure how to use M.M. to get the benefits without the high.
I read reports marijuana helps to build bones, if taken in smaller doses. I don't know how true that is, but if it's so that's just icing on the cake. And I won't know of any improvements in my bone density until April 2020, my next scheduled scan.
It has been approved here in Ontario, Canada for nearly a year ago and you can legally grow up to four plants on your own property for your use. We are now in the process of legalizing edible cannabis. I know it has given relief to many people.
