    Is CBD oil good for back pain? We dig down on the facts.

    One of the most common questions I get asked, Is CBD oil good for back pain, particularly lower back pain. Having a short term lower back issue myself picked up from a bad pull dead lifting and also recommending CBD oil to a friend with a more long term chronic lower back issue, I can speak firsthand to CBD oils effectiveness on back pain.


    The two main causes of lower back pain.

    1. Lumbar Strain/Sprain – Lumbar (lower back) muscle sprains and strains are the most common causes of lower back pain. The back is prone to this strain because of its huge weight-bearing function and involvement in twisting, moving and bending. Lumbar sprain is caused when ligaments, the tough bands of tissue that hold bones together, are torn from their attachments. Lumbar muscle strain is caused when muscle fibers are abnormally torn or stretched. Both can result from a gradual overuse or from sudden injury.
    2. Sciatica – Sciatica is a health condition characterized by pain going down either leg from the lower back. This pain may go down the outside, back or front of the leg. It is often following activities like heavy lifting, though gradual onset can also occur. The pain is often described as shooting. Typically, symptoms are only on one side of the body. Certain causes, however, may result in pain on both sides of the body. Lower back pain is sometimes present. Numbness and/or weakness may occur in various parts of the affected glute leg and foot.


    Did the CBD oil ease our pain?


    My pain was reduced a lot, I found general tasks and day to day movements a lot more comfortable and bearable. My friend who suffers regularly from sciatica said his day to day pain was significantly lower and the CBD oil seemed to have more effect than his prescription painkillers which he suspects he has developed a resistance to. Being a non-psychoactive compound and with minimal to no side effects amongst users, CBD oil has become his main source of pain treatment as opposed to prescription pain killers which come with some more potent side effects and possible addictive factors.

    What strength do I need?

    As back pain is typically intense and in some cases chronic, a higher concentration CBD oil is recommended. We both used the Protohemp CBD oil 50000mg. With 60ml in each bottle it also lasts a lot longer than the typical 10-30 ml servings supplied by most CBD oil brands.


    How long do I need to use it for?

    Basically as long as necessary, My pain had all but gone when I finished the bottle. I chose to carry on taking CBD oil for the countless other benefits. My friend is still taking it for his sciatica due to it being a long term ailment. There are many other causes of back pain but from all research I have done it appears to be very effective across the lot.

    So, is CBD oil good for back pain?

    If you’re asking me Is CBD oil good for back pain my answer is simply YES. My friend and I had very different back related pain but we both benefited hugely from CBD oil.

    Amazon has the Protohemp 50000mg on at a great price at the moment. Click >> HERE << to be taken straight to the listing.

    They say that back pain is youth leaving your body, well maybe CBD oil can be your fountain of youth.

      Taste real bad, but doesn’t all the good stuff do ?! I got this because I have mild cervical hpv and apparently the only cure is in most cases, you have an immune system kills it otherwise if it doesn’t progress on cervical cancer stages which I can’t sit here and wait to happen. I am taking full pumping vitamins to support my immune system and one of 12 of them is actually hemp capsules from amazon, but I wanted to go the extra mile by adding this hemp oil.

      I have only taken it for one day and I noticed ALL NEGATIVE thoughts have NOT happened today. Pretty weird but my anxiety was so bad it caused heart pulpit actions, which I’ve been suffering ever since I was told about this hpv condition. I understand I am over reacting on my condition, but it’s because I fell it’s the fact my farther was edited 2 years ago from prostate cancer, so the word of cancer to cause massive anxiety which I do need to control smoke. Also on the last few days my farther lived, I got my farther to try a little hemp oil and I remember he did say it helped drastically with his pain better than the actual morphine crap he was getting in the hospital.

      I do wish he started this in his early stages. Moving on, now I’ve done my research and not waiting on the NHS to tell me a year later if I’m clear or progressed on, I decided to take action and move on and get on with it. Hemp is a beautiful plant on earth given to us by God and if it has its medical benefits, then we should all take advantage. 🙂

      Might be different for people, but I have a feeling of feeling light and more relaxed. The sort of feeling when you just come out of a spa or have a professional massage. So I’m very positive about this product and will continue to use it as I was impressed with the fast effects in only my first day.

      Don’t you think so?

        Hey, thank you for that great comment and I am glad it’s helped you so much! I couldn’t agree more and have experienced that relaxed spa like feeling since taking it myself. It’s the future and I’m happy to see it finally getting the recognition it deserves. 
        best regards

      Back pain can happen for any number of reasons and ranges in severity, whether it be a simple muscle strain, bad posture, a ruptured disc, arthritis, or even a sign of more severe medical conditions, such as kidney disease or blood clot.

      As research into the advantages of cannabis proceeds, cannabidiol (CBD) has emerged as a potentially viable treatment for pain relief

      • Andy

        Could agree more

      Regardly to the CBD oil,CBD works as a pain reliever and may even help to relieve the symptoms of arthritis. Anecdotally,people have credited CBD for helping them with their back pain. One of the main ways people do this is by using CBD oil in a massage. Overall, the experience wasn’t divergent from message I had before.i am very interesting to know if CBD oil causes upset stomach and what is CBD?thanks

      I’ve been experiencing back pain lately and was to thinking of opting in for the prescription of pain killers. I never knew that this CBD oil will ease pain. You’re right about some painkillers that may come with some addictive factors.

      To me, I see this product to be more of natural. Though everybody’s cause of pain is different, but I’m glad you said “My pain had all but gone when I finished the bottle”. At least, this will give me an estimate.

      You made mention of other benefits with the usage of CBD oil, I would love to know what this can do aside easing pain.
