In my line of work it wouldn’t even be a discussion, I’d be gone. 

I hope / believe that as this science evolves, there will be testing that provides better data for how recently THC was consumed if users chose to just smoke or use an alternative that hasn’t been extracted.  

Your union is a lot stricter than mine. Nothing would happen to me. Hell with all the concerts I go to I would probably test positive most months.

I have been using it now for about 6 months for tightness/ soreness in my lower right side of my back, I have tried numerous brands and have found a nasal spray that works almost instantly called Nasa

I take it twice a day and it helps both with pain and PTSD. I haven’t tried to up my dosage as I’m only taking .025. It has a calming effect so it could help with golf.   Update:  I changed

I've not used it but trying to learn more about it as an option to Aleve - my current drug of choice for joint pains (elbow and shoulder).  Two concern I have taking CBD are; how do you know about qua

Haha...I felt the same way after my first Tom Petty show.

As far as the rule goes I get it. I don’t like it but I respect it.

Just noticed this thread.  As Rev and several others on here know, I have significant lower back issues, failed back surgery and sciatica.  I started using CBD over a year ago and am a big fan of it.  And, through my recommendations and others, about half of our golf group is now using for various ailments.  

I take a 50mg pill once a day and also use an "equine strength" balm, putting a small dab on the L5/S1 area of my lower back.  It helps greatly.  I also used to take 6 to 12 ibuprofens a day like Silver and Black.  I haven't taken any (except once for a headache) in over a year.  It's not a pain reliever per se (you wouldn't notice much of anything after taking it for a particular pain).  Rather, it has an effect over time and really takes the edge off.  Plus, although this is not a benefit usually attributed to CBD, but my blood pressure has gone down, permanently it seems, about 15 points on the top number and 10 on the bottom.

I usually use SunMed, they claim to do independent testing as well, but there are other highly rated manufacturers out there as well.

I'm gonna try some of this out for my lower back full of all sorts of problems.  I would love to be able to swing without pain for once.

I don't recall, but I think it was fairly low (and expensive for what it was).  I used a tincture that was placed under the tongue.

FYI, as an alternative (ha ha see what I did there? CBD is an "alternative" remedy...) for those who cannot or do not want to try CBD, look for a creme with MSM + Glucosamine + Chondroitin. These, of course, also come as pill supplements but the topical allows you to apply it directly to the back, hip, knee, etc.

There are different brands out there but note this supplement combo is very different than the OTC "joint pain relievers" on the drug store shelves.

(I've had good luck with Natrol that I found at vitacost.com; YMMV of course!)

I buy CBD sports cream at GNC for around $45. I just bought my second bottle - I got the first one before Christmas and my wife uses it some too.

It’s really not that expensive when you consider that. I didn’t start using it until my doctor told me that it was okay. I won’t do anything like this without consulting my trainer and doctor first. This was the only time they both said, go, and do the topical not the oral.

Is anyone out there using CBD for Arthritis or any other pain management? If so, could you describe your experience as it relates to your quality of life and of course your golf game????

 

Thanks

I had a bad motorcycle crash two year ago and was on alot of pain killers for 2 years because of CBD I'm almost completely off meds. Usually around 9 holes my knee would completely seize up. I can easily play 18 now. I had my knee completely rebuilt with cadaver tissue. I take 100mg before and 100mg at the turn and I feel really good. My inflammation is at least half. Not sure how expensive it is for you but here it's pretty expensive. I can almost buy pain killers for less, but I like being off opioids.

This is what keeps me from trying it. I just live with the pain.

I've used it for a bit last year before my back surgery it did alleviate the pain, but id did not take it away completely. I used it during the last week before the surgery when I had to stop taking most of my pain medications. Since I played no golf on those days I cannot attest if it would have helped with it at all. But if I would to start getting back or other pains again, I most definitely would try it before going to the pills. I had no side effects nor issues with it.

I just ordered some. I have some tennis elbow going on at the moment. Pain is manageable, but want to see if the CBD cream helps.

CBD products are my best discovery yet!  They've changed my health and my family’s health in a number of ways including: no longer needing ADHD meds for my son, no more pain medications due to inflammation and arthritic pain issues for my mum and we all sleep better then we ever have! We use CBD oil roll on, cream for pain and cbd bath bombs too. You can get them here: https://getcbdinfusion.com/ - I don't understand how anyone can be against CBD products when it's dramatically improving people's lives including ours. We can’t imagine going back to life without it.

I’d love to try it for my back and hip pain, but working for a governmental agency I get random tested often and until I’m sure that it won’t cause a false positive it’s not worth it to me.

It’s not CBD, but Voltaren Gel, now available OTC, is a real medication as it has diclofenac in it, an anti-inflammatory similar to the better known ibuprofen. I sold it years back, and it was the most widely used, and suggested, topical by Orthos... Most creams are just irritants, they aggravate the skin and don’t do anything else. Voltaren has a “driver” in it so it actually gets the anti-inflammatory into the joint to reduce swelling. It’s indicated for elbows, wrists and hands, as well as knees, ankles and feet. Again, it’s a former prescription med, so not CBD, but is what I’ve always used on my knees and feet for the last 12 years.
