Reduced my neurological pain

SMURF1949 Member Posts: 1 Listener
I suffer with neurological pain. I have been taking Gabapentin 400mg x3  x3 times daily. I recently had to stop because they have started to affect my kidneys. I was recommended CBD oil for pain. I sent for some cbda + cbd 3%.cold pressed. I started with 2 drops ( 300 drops per bottle ) and have gradually increased to 5 drops 3 times daily. I am now virtually pain free.  The only thing I would say is I made sure to buy from a reputable company, one which is regulated. The FB page CBD oil users UK has some really good friendly advice. Good luck.

    Hi @SMURF1949, and welcome to the community! Great to have you here.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I do have to remind anybody who may be reading this to consult your own GP or a medical professional involved in your care when it comes to making decisions about pain relief or treatment. However, thanks for sharing this and great to hear you've found something that works for you!

    Hi Smurf, 
    Thank you for this, I am really interested in the CBD oil, I have heard some really good things about this.  As someone who has taken co-codamol and pregabalin for 6 years now without the desired pain-free outcome I am keen to know the long-term effects and whether the initial pain relief is still there longer term.
