Before surgery I would use cbd honey to help me sleep. I am currently smoking weed but The honey always helped me sleep better. Did anyone have any issues eating honey after surgery? I don’t wanna buy a $60 honey if I can’t eat it 😂

What does your doctor say - about smoking weed and eating honey? Honey was certainly not on my food list after surgery - nor was any kind of sugar or concentrated carb. My doc would not have done surgery if I had been smoking anything at all. So for me, the answer to your question is an emphatic "No." But it is your doctor's opinion that matters most - not anyone else's.

I would worry about the sugar in the honey causing dumping syndrome...you might try a half dose and see if you tolerate it. There are some CBD products that have no honey in it, maybe try that?

I’m 3 1/2 months post surgery and consume sugar in my tea a couple times a day and eat a few FlaVorIce ice pops (with sugar) each day (it’s hot and humid in Brisbane).

I’ve never experienced dumping.

I remain extremely limited in what I can eat, but sugar hasn’t been an issue, so I doubt honey would be an issue for me.

I honestly can't see how smoking marijuana would make any difference--unless you succumb to the munchies!

So you kicked the addiction to food sugar and carbs and now want to get permission to be stoned and eat Honey Sugar with THC in it?

do me a favor call the doctor and tape the conversation would love to hear that.

Weed is a addiction, yes it has some minor medical help my view is your are transfering your addictive personality to a different item =

However its your life live it

I use it for my pcos and insomnia. I don’t get high then go eat. It was just a question because before a teaspoon or less of honey worked better then weed. And didn’t know if I could get something I know works for try a different cbd product.

Can you get CBD oil? No sugar, and depending on what the manufacturer uses as base oil, calories would range from 5-20 calories per dropperful.

I have a peppermint CBD oil spray, which I've used sporadically for relaxation/sleep and more recently for post-plastics pain management, and it does not make me stoned, nor hungry, nor sick to my stomach.

Edited to add: Also, I would stay away from smoking in the early days as it hampers healing. Though ideally, just stay away from smoking at all ❤️

I tried the non flavored oil from online and not only did it taste awful but didn’t work but it may have just been that company. Are there any websites or places you recommend getting the oils? I was going to try my local co-op.

I'm from Canada, and I got mine from the govertment-operated website which, at the time I bought it, was the only place we can get it legally up here, unless it's doctor prescribed...which mine isn't.

Unless you get some word-of-mouth recommendations from people in your state, you may have to do some trial and error, which may get expensive though...

Is yours prescribed? Can you ask your doctor for recommendations?

P.S. I've tried the non-flavoured oil as well. I am NOT a fan.

P.P.S. Also make sure you look at the percentage of CBD in any product...this may be why your first one didn't work?

Weed's not legal here, but CBD is. There are some oils that are flavored that help remove that "earthy" taste. The cinnamon ones taste much better than the plain.

I talked at length with a CBD distributor at a music festival and asked about so many companies jumping on the CBD bandwagon. It's a new industry without a lot of regulations and quality controls in place yet, so know where you get it from (of course he said HIS company was the best!). So I imagine one brand might work better for you than the other. I doubt the honey doesn't help other than to make it taste better. Be sure to compare the CBD concentration of your product because it's all over the map.

I've never used it, but I hear valerian root helps many people relax and sleep.

I hope you find something that helps you!

Thank you I appreciate the help ❤️ I’ve been looking around and found a company that has good reviews but it’s $200 for a small bottle 😂 so I’ll try the valerian root first never heard of it so hopefully that’ll help

Honey may be trail and error. Perhaps try regular first before the medicinal stuff.

My surgeon didn't want anyone smoking/vaping nicotine products and as for cannabis he said dont tell him (I'm sure for liability sake. 😂)

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
