1. I found your article to be very interesting and beneficial for people experiencing chronic back pain, I am sure your readers appreciate you sharing this product with them to ease their back pain.

    I was wondering if this product would help me with chronic leg pain, so far my doctors have not helped me ease my pain and I refuse to use prescription pain medications as long as possible?


  2. I wish CBD oil had been around when I was crippled with back pain 5 years ago. I knew people often suffered with a “bad back” but it wasn’t until I suffered from it myself that I realized how debilitating it can be.

    I was essentially out of action for 6 weeks. Like an idiot I assumed it was a transitory condition and would fix itself in a few days or a week. I wasn’t totally immobile, but carry the groceries from the market to the car was agonizing. Eventually I had to seek medical help when I couldn’t stand the pain and discomfort any longer.

    Voltarol didn’t make any difference to my condition. Maybe CBD oil would have.

    • Hello Gary,

      I am so glad that you’re better now. Back pain sucks big time. Here is the good news: even medical experts that were initially skeptical about the ability of CBD to reduce and in some cases eliminate pain have changed their minds because they have discovered that CBD is very effective at fighting inflammation–the major cause of people feeling pain. So I think that means more people are likely to have access to CBD and perhaps live with less pain.

  3. Hello Thabo,

    I have been having chronic back pain for years. Though not severe, it can be uneasy. At times, I am immune to the pain (when I don’t think about it) but will definitely feel it at the end of the day. The pain is probably due to my compressed vertebrae after a very bad fall many years ago.
    I am not sure if I should try this CBD oil.


    • Hello Sharon,

      As you probably are aware, there are varying options for treating the back pain associated with degenerative disc disease, but more and more back pain sufferers are finding out that the naturally available alternative is the best option with mild side effects such as nausea, irritability, dizziness, stomach issues and others.

      The CBD oil is a type of low-risk treatment option which serves as an analgesic agent.
      Patients are suffering from degenerative disc disease experience pain due to inflammation. However, CBD oil helps in treating the pain as it serves as an anti-inflammatory agent. So I would say it’s worth a try.

      All The Best,


  4. Hello Thabo,

    I’m wondering how the CBD oil exactly works. As I have said in previous comments here on your website, I think it is so important to look for the cause of the pain and find a cure for pain and diseases and not only treat the symptoms.

    How about CBD oil, does it really heal the pain or does it only take the feeling of the pain away?

    Will there be a time when CBD oil is not more needed after some time of treatment or must it be taken forever, in order to be pain-free?


    • Hello Pernilla,

      There is growing evidence that CBD oil can help reduce chronic pain and in some cases eliminate it all together because of its ability to fight inflammation. That said, The researchers also found that subjects were not likely to build up a tolerance to the effects of CBD, so they would not need to increase their dose continually. Most people start with low dosages and then increase as they need it. Eventually they reach a level where they can start reducing again if they need to. Everyone’s situation is different. There is no perfect dosage but often the recommended dosage for a particular condition is what the user should follow. If one is taking prescription medication they need to consult a doctor before taking CBD because CBD can change the way that particular medicine works. I have also spoken to someone who had a bad back pain and used CBD oil and she says the pain was gone after 6 weeks. She said nothing else worked before the CBD. As I said, everyone’s situation is different. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have anymore questions.


      • Thank you, Thabo for your helpful answer.

        I want to study this further. It seems to be a very promising remedy. Grateful for the advice to consulting a doctor if taking a prescription medication.


        • You are welcome, Pernilla.
          It’s important not to rush into anything that involves your health. It’s wise to take the time to do your own research so you can be comfortable with the decision to use or not use CBD. Should you decide if it’s something that you want to try let me know.


  5. Thanks Thabo, this is a really great article on overcoming back pain with CBD Oil. I have a family member that is addicted to pain pills and have been trying to get them to try CBD Oil and they say they have but it did not help them with pain relief. Not sure what kind they were using so I do not know if it was a reputable company or if they really even give it a chance. I know I have used it and it seems like a wonder oil. How can I convince my family member that they need to try the CBD Oil again. I would appreciate any insight possible. thanks

    • Hello Dena,
      As you are aware dosage is very important when it comes to treating pain with CBD oil. Most times it is recommended that people start with low dosages and then increase the levels. It’s possible, however, that the level that one is treating for their particular condition is too low and as a result won’t yield any results. I interviewed a woman named Sally before writing the post about CBD oil for back pain. This is exactly what happened to her. she started with low dosages that really didn’t do anything. She then increased to 300Mg and then to 500mg. The pain was gone in 6 weeks. It could be that your family member, assuming she got good quality CBD oil, tried too low a dosage and assumed it didn’t work. You’ll have ask how much dosages she tried. Also, of course, find out if she mixed CBD oil with prescription medicine. CBD often changes the way prescription medicine works and it’s not a good idea to combine them. I hope this helps.
