Patients Focal dystonia
Topic of the discussion
Posted on 4/18/19 5:14 AM
has anyone had any success with CBD for muscle pain and spasm and twitches? If so, what dosage and brand? Is it vape, edible, or sublingual?
I have tried vaping, I think it was 15 mg, but did not notice any true effects, so I am worried that I did not either have the right dosage or did not buy the right brand, etc.
Thank you for reading and hope to find some help.

I have tried CBD for my cervical dystonia. It was difficult for me to tell if it was working fully, but I began to feel less pain in my neck and shoulders. However I stopped because it became too expensive and I would order higher quality CBD or what I thought was higher quality CBD but couldn't discern a difference. One I began using kratom I stopped using CBD.

@Armor2 O my gosh, you use Kratom? Wow, that is so good to hear. I have not heard of anyone else using it. It helps me with the pain... but not so much the tremors or spasms, but certainly helps for the pain. What type of Kratom strain do you use that helps? I use a blend of Green Malay, Red Bali, and White Maeng Da.
So you feel Kratom helped more than CBD for the pain just not as much as Kratom, but as for as the spams, CBD did not help?

Definitely kratom is far superior, and I was starting to use more and more CBD oil maybe because of tolerance. I use a red Indo with white Borneo. Red attacks the pain quite well.
CBD did nothing for the spasms and I am trying to find a solution for that.

Hi! I have used CBD oil ( Inuse KOI- 1000mg- a half to a full dropper a day depending on my pain level) for over a year for my spasms and they basically have stopped. I still sometimes get them if I’m trying to turn my head the left and go against my dystonia. Please be careful with the kratom- I had considered it until reading into it more. Just isn’t for me, but I’m glad it is working for those taking it :) My neurologist wanted to put me on klonopin and Valium for my spasms but I’m so thankful I was introduced to CBD oil instead..

Agree, I believe as kratom users for chronic pain we take extra care to use it wisely. You have have made me reconsider CBD oil and vape as well.

@Foxyfoxm why do you say to be careful with Kratom? Any side-effects that I have read are really no that bad... I would love to hear more. @Armor2
Did you notice immediate results with CBD? I took it for 2 weeks - super expensive and used the KOI brand you mentioned but had no effects. Maybe it was my dosage?
