    I am looking for the thought of folks that have used CBD for pain management.
    Would like to get off opioids and use CBD instead.
    Is this possible and has any one been successful doing this?
    I will be under a doctors care.
    Thank you

    Definitely discuss it with your doctor, but my own personal experience has been positive. I am on multiple opioids and have so far been able to all but eliminate one of them. I still have some break through pain, but nowhere near as bad as it was. Just keep an open dialogue with your physician/pain mgmt team and hopefully you can have a positive experience too.

    I don't find it helps with really chronic pain, just minor pain.
    It helps with anxiety but only slightly.

    I enjoy opiates as well though, I get very addicted to them and was on heroine for many years. I am now on methadone.

    I suffer alot of pain but I know if I go on opiates again I won't get off them.

    So short answer it's definitely not a miracle cure, only for minor difficulties.

    I don't know why you are in pain management, how long or what they have you on but I can tell you it does help, just not at first. In my experience, nothing worked for the first few months after getting off but eventually your body/brain sort things out and CBD can be effective.

    Just in case you were wondering, CBD will not help curve the withdrawals.

    That's most certainly the case, that's why I tell people to give it time instead of just trying it once thinking it will get them stoned.

    After a few months though and reducing my opiates it definitely has improved my sleep and helps some kinda of pains.
    I just think people will be disappointed if they think it's gonna help really chronic conditions like Sciatica

    I use CBD in addition to an anti-inflammatory. Works good enough to keep me off medication with worse side effects. I do think that it depends on your pain level. I have RA but mild to moderate.

    Anyone here with inflammation issues should really try tumeric.

    Problem with opioids is, when you are on them, you can't experience the full benefits of other natural remedies. Its a hard long road to the reset but well worth it. Having a doctor who will help you out is key.

    I have it in my legs and have been on opiates for years. Like skt239 said they stop other natural remedies you can have from taking effect

    A good liquid with full spectrum canabinoids is what you need. It wont help with breakthrough pains but it can help alleviate numb/tingly pain.

    CBD can help, but heavy * hybrids will help more*

    as a reminder all references outside hemp based CBD are rule violations and can result in mother moderation actions outside of Simply Edits. See the pinned post in the section for a reminder on Forum rule #1

    I live in Colorado and only know of cbd in combination but have completely dropped my long term opiate pain program as a result. I have found edibles to be the most beneficial but I can rarely afford them. I mainly vape my sionara and it serves me well. not a salesman, just trying to be helpful.

    Wow... that sure is a wide (and surprising) net you cast there...
    This thread seems like a very noble cause that serves the community. I'm watching it closely in order to learn.

    So I'm confused as to why you're kinda vaguely threatening/hinting at future discipline for rule violations.

    My question...
    How is it even possible to compare and discuss the health benefits of CBDs over opiates
    if folks aren't permitted to mention opiates?

    Just looking for clarification... where is the line LM?

    edit: Added rule...

    1. not a net just a warning i have seen CBD talks go wild before.
    2. CBD under the aforementioned .3 level are ok anything outside that .3 maybe interpreted to mean non Hemp.
    This in a nutshell As far as current federal law goes, any CBD-rich plant that exceeds 0.3 percent is considered Drug and is therefore off limits.

    I never know if people are talking about CBD or if they are talking about it's illegal cousin and use CBD as a code word to get around VU rules.

    easy rule of thumb if the thread mentions percentages higher than .3 then its the other stuff.
