Hemp CBDs, it is time to talk about it.

No THC. No high. No buzz. No false sense of euphoria.
It works, and it is legal in all 50 states, depending on who is president.
The opioid pharmas fought tooth and nail against making it legal. 
Very expensive, but the prices should come down with more hemp farmers.
There is a cash crop for you.

I fell down a lot. I had major problems sleeping. I had no energy. A lot of pain. I avoided people because I was always short fused. I had to look for a reason to get out of bed. Not anymore.

The constant pins and needles in my limbs is gone. I feel good. I sleep like a baby, and even after the nightly visits to the facilities I have no problem going back to sleep. I have some real energy back. It works.

Thanks to william randolph hearst hemp was made illegal along with pot because he wanted to make paper from trees. How much would we know if there wasn't money involved with making paper? All the products made from hemp were superior in quality. It made the best rope.

Charlotte's Web and Realm of Caring are good sources of information. There are a lot of shysters out there.

I really hope you will take this seriously and for what it is worth. I hope no one is upset about it.

    Surely some of you guys have opinions on this subject. I'd be curious to hear some

    It's not about getting high, it's about controlling pain and the relief it gives.

    There is no high what so ever. I am talking about HEMP not marijuana.

    Then what's the downside?

    The cost. It is expensive. But like I said, when more farmers see a viable cash crop in growing hemp the price will come down.

    My view of it.

    I don't drink and I don't do any recreational drugs.
    But, from everything I have read and talked to folks who take the CBD stuff, there is no impairment, no euphoria, no problems and it maintains pain relief and muscle problems very well.

    I know one person who keeps their MS in check with CBD medicine after years of fighting with prescriptions and the difference in them between before CBD and now is pretty impressive.
    The cost of the CBD is far less than the cost of some of their prescriptions.

    If I didn't have a CDL and I didn't have a fear that the CBD would show up on drug testing, I'd be taking it for my shoulder problems.
    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    My stepdaughter has started using it and she says it helps, she also has MS.
    As far as I know the HEMP products do not show up on a drug test. I will find out on the 25th. My doctor took a urine sample and he knows nothing about my CBD use.

    CBD works very well for me. It replaced opioids last month when I got home from a surgery.  It helps me get through days when I am especially sore. No euphoria, just medicine. Its actually cheaper than the regular stuff here

    I'm all for CBD being used to help treat people's health problems. Problem is even if your in a state where it's legal, it's still federally illegal. Which means drug test time you will still fail. Maybe the employers don't care in those states, but I guarantee they do in other states.

    I'm federally mandated, as a CDL holder, so until I know for a fact that it doesn't jeopardize a drug test, I don't take it.
    Even though it is legal in Oregon, as a CDL holder and employed by DOT, I'm still under the federal guidelines.

    That's the problem, federally mandated. Not worth it, you take, they test, you will fail for it. I failed for it years back and they don't care if it's THC, CBD etc.  cannabinoids are cannabinoids to the system, fail for one and a positive test for marijuana is the result regardless of where it came or was derived from.
  • TX98Z28TX98Z28 TexasPosts: 1,237 ✭✭✭✭✭
    They will even list which cannabinoid you failed for, the whole chemical name and the amount of it in your urine.

    There are soooooo many court cases waiting for a decision that it is so mind boggling that trying to keep up with the DEA's decisions causes head aches. 
    I would certainly not want to jeopardize any license that I might have, and I understand the hesitation and confusion of others. 
    After reading for hours all the nonsense (tylenol) put out by the DEA and other entities (pro and con) I fully expect to see a clarifying decision to be made this year.

    Bottom line is that, it works, and I am sorry for all the folks who won't/can't try it.

    Back when my knee was replaced I lost 73 lbs.  The first 35 was welcome, the next 35 not so much.  I couldn't eat on pain pills.  I couldn't eat because of the pain.  My doc asked if I'd be averse to taking Marinol, Rx THC, I said "let's do it".

    It worked great!  Appetite came back, slept like a baby, woke up in a good mood, and cut the pain meds in half right away.  When I returned to work, I started taking it the night before my shifts.  Wonderful, until...Fascist Corporate America drug tests ALL the time.  So, I've got an Rx.

    That worked, except that every single time I'd have to end up on the phone arguing with this stupid ****, usually for 2 - 3 hours while she threatened me with various next-level interventions.  She'd end up saying "we can test again and determine for sure...", and I'd say "OK".

    And so, I'd be "randomly" tested every 4 - 6 weeks.  That went on for years until I finally said enough and retired.

    It's all hooey, all the laws, and anyone with any sense and knowledge knows it.

    Gateway drug?  Of course it is, the Jackassses put it on the wrong side of the fence!

    It's all about the money, guys. You know that. If I can grow my own medicine why would the pharm industry stand by and let me?  Not as long as they can get The azz-wipe politicians into the game....

    I think I've heard about this.

    As far as it being a gateway drug, it was for me.
    The minute I tried it I knew I had been lied to,  It wasn't the evil dev'lish fiendish drug I had been told .......Then I wondered what else they were lying about.
    That's where my problems began.   Wondering if they had lied about the rest of the drugs.

    They turned it into a gateway drug by lying about it in the beginning.

    Marijuana by itself is relatively harmless, but the rest of that stuff will kill you.

    I've been using CBD for 2 years and have yet to fail a drug screening. The ambulance service I work for requires a urine, saliva and hair sample. I've come up clean every time.

    The 1st CBD gummies I tried, unknown to me had THC in it. Legal levels mind you, but they got my stepson in trouble with his drug test. They for some strange :p  reason require no levels.
    Luckily the judge agreed it was totally innocent o:) .

    I know now to buy from places that guarantee. 100% HEMP.

    PS Thanks for being part of the ambulance service. Love people in the uniformed services....we have been helped by you guys a number of times.

    Thanks for the kind words, brother. I just hit the 20 year mark in EMS with the last 12 years as a Paramedic. It's an interesting job, to say the least.

    Hey, you take that back, @0patience. I do so. I've made a few posts recently.  :#

    Youve been having all that trouble logging in and all that you haven't had time to read other threads, I guess. Am I right??  o:)

    Catch 22?  Here in California (and presumably other states as well) even though cannabidiol (CBD) is legal, if you live in an assisted living facility, a skilled nursing facility, or any other facility which receives federal funds of any kind such as Medicare, then federal law applies and CBD is illegal there. 

    This is evidently the way the feds maintain control over cannabis and it’s derivatives.
