A little background on me. I have degenerative L2-S1, severe Stenosis L4, Had 1 spinal surgery, I couldn’t avoid because I had pieces of disk floating. Resulting in scar tissue and L4herniation contained by the scar tissue. In addition, I have a denerative left hip that needs to be replaced. Am currently considering Nevro SCS trial to see if if will enable me to walk more than 100ft. But was still told I would need to stay on current pain regimen.
I do have oxy, (10/325 w/Tylenol) but prefer to treat pain with CBD because pain returns gradual before next dose, rather than like a sledge hammer when oxy wears off. I try to limit nsaids to 2 Aleve daily, am/pm, because of liver complications.
I did dispensary CBD/ THC synergy effect edibles & creams, for a little over a year at a cost of about $500/mo. Extremely expensive and inconsistent results most likely due to poor quality control on product.
Tried numerous online Hemp CBD products. Same problem with no quality control of the quality of CBD used.
So my next approach was finding well tested Hemp CBD & terpenes equal to those found in Dispensay product. Finally found two companies that had excellent testing and extraction process. True Terpene extracts their plant terpenes from non Cannabis plants. Then tests on a gaschromatograph to insure they’re identical. Plus Infinite CBD Isolate is a concentrated form of Hemp CBD. From here I started making my own edibles, creams, sublingual oil, etc, where I can control exactly CBD mg in each piece/dose.
By far InfiniteCBD.com is the best on the market. Truthfully, I haven’t tried mega mg to see exactly how much would take to get me pain free. Currently use about 300-400mg a day which gives me pain range of 1-4 daytime and 5-8 pain scale often at night. Lying prome exacerbates my pain. So I generally sleep with my witouch tens unit on also.
I recently started talking about 90mg before bed and for first time, in many years, manage 4-5hrs of sleep. Usually take another 40-50mg when pain wakes me and I am able to get a few more hours of light sleep. Previously, if lucky, I managed 1.5hrs before pain sent me to the recliner.
Based on my experience with the crap & inconsistent product out there, dispensary or Hemp CBD online, I’d say you are experiencing the same problem I had. I would highly suggest you look at infinitecbd. They now also sell product not just isolate. Capsules, sublingual drops, vape juice, candies nad more. The good place that sells the best Terpenes is trueterpene.com. These terpenes based on desired relief of specific symptoms. You can use in cooking or just a drop in/on something.
My current average Hemp CBD cost is about $150/mo. That’s why I’m sitting here now writing this because Infinitecbd has a cybermonday sale of 40% off starting at midmight. I know how well it works so I’m hoping to buy enough to last me until next cybermonday.
Just wanted to say to you, don’t give up on CBD, just try the good stuff.
