Anybody use CBD oil for scars? I heard it works well. Not sure where to find topical CBD oil though.

Silicone gel, tape, Patches has been proven to be effective for scar reduction. It is what plastic surgeons universally recommend.

Since I can no longer take Aleve or Ibuprofen for my backaches and pains, I’m looking into using CBD oil tintures to replace them. Does anyone use it for pain and inflammation? I don’t live a legal state, so it would be just the CBD, not THC.
Yes, I use it for headaches and back pain. It works wonderfully for me. Def worth a shot.

Hello! First post for me!

I am very interested in checking out CBD oil to possibly treat my diabetic neuropathy in my feet. I am taking Gabapentin now but they are fairly large capsules. I am still pre-op, scheduled for this November, but I'm not looking forward to cutting up all my medications/switching to chewables. I have no trouble swallowing all my meds at once, large pills included, and needing to change that is one of the things I'm dreading. I live in Illinois, which is at least now legal for medical use, so I would rather use the official oil sold at the dispensary instead of the questionable stuff at the local head shop. However, Illinois is very strict on what they will give an Rx card for, There are many more hoops to jump through and more fees than somewhere like California. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the struggle to get the better oil. In the past I wanted to go straight to THC if I ever got a card (at least for when I don't have to work) but I'm honestly kind of paranoid that I'll get the munchies post-surgery and do damage to either myself or my weight loss. Has anybody had any experience with that, even for recreational use? Just happy reading what everyone has tried on here.

Have you tried B1 thiamine supplement. It helped my husband quite a bit with his neuropathy.

Thanks for the reply!

I did actually add that to my supplements about two months ago, mostly to help fight off Hair loss when the time comes, but since I'm still taking the Gabapentin I can't tell if it's doing anything for that yet.

I’ve used CBD for probably a year now with and currently without THC. Hempworx is a good brand and they carry both kinds. I have chronic pain and fibromyalgia and it helps me a lot.

thecbdistillery.com has been where I got a topical for pain as well as a sublingual for anxiety. The topical has an earthy maybe pine sol smell to it. My bf has severe joint pain issues in his knees and arm and it works pretty well. I don't use the sublingual too often because it smells and tastes more like what you would expect from a hemp derived plant (FYI if you use it at work!!). I have heard that the concentrations can build in your system over time and cause a positive urinalysis for thc if this is a concern for you. But it does help in the short term to get me back to normal when I am stressing like crazy.

Not legal in my state though we recognize that it has medical benefits. My chiropractor carries the creams. It helps

Foof76 you should not need a script for CBD oil. It is legal to buy in all 50 states. I am sure you can find a place to buy it. I use eadansgarden.com

I can buy knock off stuff at a few different locations, but the quality is questionable. The stuff sold at dispensaries is supposed to be more pure. I just want to know I'm using decent quality oil.

Ive used CBD oil capsules and cream. It is not illegal. The capsules make me tired so I take at bedtime. Both seem to work pretty well. We get it either online or at a local tobacco shop. Online is cheaper.

I think you’re in Texas? It’s legal here. It’s legal in all 50 states! 😉

      2 weeks and 6 days to go before I have my VSG surgery.  I am so EXCITED!  I thought that my nerves would be all over the place by now, but I am still cool as a cucumber.

      I'm just over 3 months into my 6 month pre-op diet plan and I feel like giving up.  Not because of the food, but because life is hard right now.  
      Work has become intolerable due to the amount of stress that I cannot control, but inevitably know will cause major issues for me down the road.  Long story short it's one of those "I tried to tell you this was going to happen things" that nobody reacted to because of budget constraints, but in the end there's going to be a "fall man" for what happens and it will be me, despite my preventative warnings.
      My boss is on my side, in theory, but when it comes down to protecting his own hide, I feel like he would sacrifice me to save himself.
      Also, I just had to cancel my holiday vacation due to staffing issues in my department, so now my personal life is going to be affected by my work issues.
      At this point, I'm just venting.  I realize that there are people out there much less fortunate than myself, but it sucks all the same.  I feel like everytime I get close to being happy with life, it comes and gives me a boot in the ass for a reality check.
      Happy Thanksgiving!

      My weight will JUST NOT BUDGE. I'm annoyed. This stall sucks. Can stress alone trigger a stall? I'm 237, have been for...oh 10 days now. I'm doing everything else I need to, but am more stressed than I have been.

        You will stall. I’ve had stalls for over three weeks at a time. The lower you get, the longer it will take to lose the pounds. Just keep to the program, it will come off. It’s discouraging but everyone goes through it! 🤗

      I am under 200 this morning! It's been a loooooong time ... And doesn't feel quite real. I'm not sure how to make it feel real except stare at the scale until my brain accepts it.

        I have 14 more pounds before I reach that milestone, too. I've lost 80lbs so far since June.

        So happy for you, Leia. I haven't looked up your goal weight yet. Do you have any other intermittent milestone goals after this one? I haven't figured out any in particular for myself, but I know I want to always keep myself motivated to keep working toward some goal.

      Woohoo!!!
      I had my VSG surgery on Thursday, 11/15...
      Some of the things I've learned in the last couple days:
      Applesauce is the devils food. (It's the only thing that's made me vomit so far).
      Getting enough fluid/protein in is a challenge... Any tips?
      (I'm vegetarian, so bone broth is out...)

      Walking has always been my favorite form of exercise, short of swimming, but it is now a necessity... get that gas OUT!

      & I LOVE nurses!! I was in intense pain post-op & the nurses were amazing.. they were amazing throughout my short stay.
      (& they are the only people on the planet that can tell you: "I can hear your intestines moving!" & make it sound like: "& the Oscar goes to...") :D

      Thanks to everyone on here who has helped get this journey started.
      I'm incredibly excited for the next phases moving forward! :)
