I use CBD oil for osteoarthritis in my back. It’s AMAZING and takes away the pain better than anything I’ve used before. I don’t want to overly spam the group so pm me and I’ll direct you to the oil and Pain Balm that I use. I use the 750mg, but they have up to 1500mg. Zero THC too.
I’m really thankful for CBD and can’t imagine having to get back on mind numbing opioids or stomach/heart/liver damaging alternatives. 🙏🏻

Curious about your diagnosis of what causes your waist down pain. Is it the stenosis? Does sudden cold water on your skin cause pain?
They can't tell me what's up with my lower back, disc tears, arthritis, neuro....every doctor says something different. The only doctor able to at least given some relief was a pain management doctor. He did the radio frequency Ablations and it helped, but after the third time, the nerves grow back with a vengance. First time lasted about 8 months, second about 6, third about 4... I carried the M-60 for years, doorkicking, jumps, and combat has taken it's toll. The VA didn't want to touch the Burn Pits issue or the Gulf War syndrome, even though it's been proven the experimental Anthrax they gave me, when I kicked the Iraq War off, causes all of the symptoms of Gulf War Syndrome. Whatever I'm at 100% rating so really can't complain.
Did you ever try magnesium shots? They work very well too. Have talked to docs a lot about that versus cortisone.....
Had a bad motorcycle accident years ago and was getting cortisone shots for a while until another doc said to do magnesium....world of difference and no tolerance build up.
CBD takes care of it 95% of the time for me now. Every 8 months or so I get a bad neck tweak and take 4 or 5 magnesium shots and good as new.

Generally speaking, from what I have read about finding quality CBD products, you want to look for organic, virgin, cold pressed, full spectrum, and CO2 extraction. Full spectrum means that the product is made from the whole plant, as opposed to isolating the CBD. The full spectrum form allows the CBDs to work in synergy with the other plant cannabinoids and terpenes.
I looked at the CBDPure website, and it looks like good quality from what I know. It seems a little pricey though. Living Green brand offers 30-count CBD gummies on Amazon with 20 mg per gummy for about $30, and recommends one before bed. I also found one from Get Well Hemp for 30-count gummies with 10mg per gummy for about $20. The CBDPure website describes its "700" formula as providing a "whopping" 25 mg per dose, so that could probably be considered a higher dose.
You may have to try one and see just how it affects you to really know though.
I hope this helps!

I agree these products should be covered by insurance for chronic pain but common people shouldnt run from pain to pleasure everytime. Its calling you to heal. To heal the past sometimes.

I have also experienced the benefits MJ can give to severe back pain. I am one of those that get a weird effect from the psychotropic element of marijuana. Has anyone used the oil that doesn't have the mind altering effects? Is it as effective?
