While conducting my survey “What can CBD treat” I came across some positive and inspiring CBD success stories, which I would like to share with you. If you would like to read more about the survey, please click here.
If you would like to find out more about CBD please read my post What is CBD? FAQs.
The following are comments taken from my survey “What can CBD treat?” and detail the positive impact taking CBD has had on the participants health:
“(I have) Osteoarthritis, low mood, poor sleep. The inflammation, stiffness & pain gone. Sleep brilliantly and much more chilled & happy. 12 year old dog with arthritis now like a pup. Both of us take no pharma meds now”
“(CBD has helped) Low mood, depression, less anxious, pain in joints from menopause, deeper sleep. Knee pain. Got my sense of humour back!”
“I have chronic migraine (constant migraine with about 2 acute attacks a week) and Constant daily headache. CBD has eliminated the constant nausea, reduced the amount of constant head pain and I’ve only had one acute attack in about 5 weeks and that was triggered by an occipital nerve block injection which also caused stiff neck and the CBD balm got rid of the stiff neck”
“Our 15 yr. old very large dog, with severe arthritis in his back legs is now actually running! stiff legged but still running and a much happier chappy”
“I have a rare autoimmune that causes inflammation to blood vessels. CBDA has controlled the IBS and gut inflammation, reduced the number of bursting blood vessels I get, soft tissue ulcers, joint pain. I’m less tired and sleep better with the CBD element”
“I have anxiety and insomnia. I can now function with the help of CBD for my anxiety and have not have an attack since starting taking 1 drop 2 times a day (with no intention of upping the dose). I have found that I can manage to live my life ‘normally’ and leave the house on my own when it is not for work. My insomnia has not been helped at all”
“arthritis from 6 yrs old, 2 failed operation on hips and shoulders, subluxations due to eds, rheumatoid arthritis coming in hands, acid reflux, restless legs, pain and insomnia…. terrible side effects to meds that didn’t work so turned to alcohol as well….. of all meds, no longer suffer restless legs, insomnia 80% better now just have a bad night now and then, quality of life improved, less pain, more mobility”
“I have fibromyalgia, bpd (borderline personality disorder) AD (adjustment disorder) DD (dissociative disorder) cbd gives me a new life it’s still difficult as I take no other medication but I highly recommend it for pain but especially for mental health it helps calm any ‘bad’ thoughts, still can’t communicate face to face but that’s socially awkward 😂 or just don’t like people lmao”
“Taking it for chronic vestibular migraine. It has helped but as a bonus, it has also helped with psoriasis, arthritis and menopausal hot flushes”
“ME: Chronic pain and spasm / inflammation in my neck / shoulders (caused by bulging discs and nerve impingements). I’m now virtually pain free. Also helps with my ADD and with anxiety.
MUM: Osteoarthritis in her knees. She is seeing a big reduction in pain over time.”
“My dog has epilepsy, and CBD 100% controls his fits. I also know a human who is using it for the same reason, and with success.”
“Diabetes-A1C is now normal. Inflammation in my knee causing much pain is gone. All around aches are gone. Not as stiff or sore. Anxiety is so much better! And an all around better feeling of wellness. What it did not help is stomach issues like reflux or heartburn (though they are better than before just not much difference) And my gray hair? Ya, it’s STILL gray!!! ;)”
“Our 15 year old son has Aspergers, PDA and severe anxiety. The effect of CBD on him was immediate. The first time he used it was when we traveled to the east coast last summer and normally a trip like that would cause him anxiety such that he would need to stop and urinate every 20-30 minutes along the journey. On that occasion, we didn’t stop once and he was able to go to the beach immediately on arrival, where he normally would take a day or 2 to recover after the journey before venturing out. We try and get him to use it everyday (but aren’t always successful) and it has made life a lot less stressful for him and us as a consequence.”
“My 13 yr old daughter using CBD to treat bad joint pain from EDS. She has brain fog, fatigue also. Her joint pain is 90% decreased.”
“Chronic lumbar/lower half pain & arthritis . Cbd takes the edge of the pains & lifts mood. Never 100% pain free, but most days the cbd knocks it down a few levels to a manageable degree”
“I suffer from PTSD, bad anxiety and depression. I use cbd 500 oil. One drop twice daily. Life changing ! 😊
My 11yr dog cried and yelled getting in the car. He is running around like he was 5 🐕.”
“I have Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. My husband has degeneration of shoulder joints due a new replacement right shoulder very soon. We both have benefited and no longer take opiate pain killers. Not a cure but life is so much better😁”
“I’ve recently started using CBD oil as I’ve got Parkinsons and it’s been absolutely amazing it’s helping my anxiety my cramps my sleep relaxation and my movements/mobility and I’ve only been taking it a week!! So happy I started using it I’m sure it has many more benefits yet to come…! I also use the CBD balm for aching/painful joints…”
“I have severe CFS/ME, Fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, IBS, anxiety and panic attacks, migraines, depression and insomnia. CBD has successfully lowered my pain and anxiety levels, helped my insomnia, fatigue and reduced my IBS symptoms. CBD allows me to manage my symptoms more effectively than any prescription medication I’ve tried. I can finally see a future for myself.”
