How CBD oil could help treat chronic pain



Jo Allen has fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition that has a broad spectrum of related symptoms including fatigue, cognitive dysfunction and reduced physical function. Its nickname is ‘the invisible illness’.

Jo has got some pain relief in recent months from CBD oil, which comes from a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis.

She puts drops of the oil under her tongue three times a day and also uses a vape pen, saying it’s “the only thing that I found that works for my pain, especially my hip pain”.

“I can take that and within about 20 minutes I’ll know whether I’ve got to reach for the morphine-based drug or not and a lot of the time I actually don’t have to go for that which is huge to me.”

“To look after my own son for a day means that I am completely out of action for at least a day. In bed, in agony, having to take all of the CBD I have, all of the morphine derivative medications that I have, anything that I can get my hands on, just to get through a day after looking after my son.”

  1. I too have fibro along with meralgia/ migraines / dupertons in both hands.
    Had chronic pain since a car accident 15yrs ago. Numerous horrible meds that never worked apart from making me feel worse and giving me other things like hiatus hernia !
    I weaned myself off gaberpentin / pizotofin / amitriptyline and down from 8 cocodomol to now 2 a day and it took 2 years to eliminate all that rubbish from my body. I just received my cbd oil and am so hopeful it has a use in my life as I know there is no doc meds that will help me as tried most…onwards and upwards on a journey or discovery x

  2. Total BS. GARBAGE K now Im cronic as far as pain with lots of other issues with lots of inflamation. So far this is a joke. Doesnt help me one bit. The pain levels which are at least 8 constant stay 8 constant. I pretty much cant sleep for the pain and anxiety Im loaded with. Not sure where you find people that say its good cus I believed it till I tried it. Now my oppinion is I wasted money on junk. Dont fall for CBD oil its a joke
