What is CBD?
CBD is a cannaboid extracted from marijuana. It has a long list of benefits, help in neuropathic pain is one of these.
I can attest to its abiliy to control nausea, increase relaxation, reduce pain (I've used for bone pain reduction) and antinausea.
So I don't use frequently. Mostly around days 2-5 of chemo therapu for nausea. For me it works better than the zofran I was prescribed and with a lot less side effect.
In fact the only side effects of CBD have all been positive. There is no psychoactive high with CBD. It is shown to reduce pain levels 50-80% in studies. For me the low 25mg does elleviates about 50% on the bone pain levels I experienced during granix and zarxio injections. The claritin I took relieved nothing and caused kidneys to start to stress.
There may be some mental stigma around marijuana still to this day, however CBD is only 1 chemical extracted from the plant and it is legal - worldwide according to this informational video about CBD. I have found it a very effective tool during my ongoing chemo-therapy - I take zero prescribed anti-nausea or pain pills as a result of its usage.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw-h402jr5o
