After about 5 -10 mins i noticed i felt more relaxed in myself and less anxious, which was a nice pleasant feeling. After about 30 mins I noticed the pain in my foot had dialled down from about a 6-7 to around 3-4 and i was able to move my toes with less stiffness. As each individual reacts differently to CBD oil, it takes a bit of experimenting to find the right dosage. The effects are meant to last about 6-8 hours for each dose so I am planning on taking another dose about an hour before bedtime in the hope that it gives me a nice relaxed sleep!
Also i would recommend taking B Vitamins as they are known for helping the nervous system, and also trying to maintain a very clean diet ( whole foods, organic if you can, no processed food, reducing sugar, reduce coffee) as this will help reduce inflammation.
I am aware of the beneficial effects it has for people suffering from MS, cancer, anxiety, depression, arthritis etc. CBD is widely used in many European countries, USA and Canada and there are moves by the UK medical authorities right now to have CBD oil classified as a medicine ( something which will mean the current retailers will be prevented from selling it without a very expensive license, potentially cutting off those that would benefit the most from having access to it).
Sorry it has taken me a while to respond. I am sorry to hear about the pain and difficulties your son is having. Unfortunately CRPS is still not a widely known about condition. When i first injured my foot in July initially i was told by my GP to go home and rest it for 5 days, thank goodness i went to A&E and got myself properly checked out when the pain would not go away and it was getting worse and that i was seen by a doctor who immediately recognized what was going on. I dread to think how much worse off i would be now if i hadn’t got a quick diagnosis.
Hello Jason, I am new on here having learnt about CRPS only today. My 30 year old son had an accident 9 years ago, fracturing his ankle. After 5 surgeries, physio, various medications (that do little to relieve his pain and other symptoms), the consultants have said there is nothing else can be done. I am now convinced that he could be diagnosed with CRPS. Our GP is aware of his “smoking” habit, which really helps with pain relief and limited mobility but the side effects bother me. I will be following your up dates carefully, whilst continuing to gather information that he can go armed with for his next review with the GP.

There are different types of medications that you can take that can all be successful depending on how early on you are in the course of the disease. But no drug has been approved by the FDA specifically for CRPS, and no drug combination is guaranteed to work for every person.
Considering that CRPS can cause pain for long periods, certain pain medication shouldn’t be taken for the entire duration because of the effects on the body. People in pain are starting to see that using medical cannabis can have the same therapeutic effects without the risks associated with pharmaceuticals.
Pain has a way of making your brain feel funky. It doesn’t just affect the person in pain, it can affect the entire family’s mental health. People with CRPS can develop:
There are a couple of different ways that CBD oil may be able to help with CRPS. The first is by elevating an agonist to the CB2 receptor. An agonist is a chemical that binds to the receptor and stimulating to cause a response.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a neurological condition of the Central, Autonomic, Sympathetic & Enteric Nervous Systems and people who suffer from Chronic Pain, such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, (CRPS), and others like chronic migraines, neuropathies, spasticity’s, joint pain, HIV, cancer are looking to solve their pain, fight nausea and help battle weight loss from inability to eat.
Sativa is much different than Indica, and in contrast, it provides energy and a very euphoric feeling those who suffer from depression and fatigue. While Indica makes sufferers feel relaxed and tired, Sativa helps energize.
Cannabis Indica, Sativa and Hybrids and the Medical Marijuana for Suffers of CRPS
Medicinal marijuana has 2 substances – THC and CBD. THC works on the CB1 receptors (hence the psychrotrophic effects) and CBD works on CB2 (which is everywhere else) and helps with pain relief and autoimmune dysfunction. But, for medical marijuana to work, both THC and CBD have to be together, and separating them is not as effective.

Cannabidiol (CBD) alone has no tetrahydrocannabinol THC in it, therefore it has no psychoactive state, and no “high”. Alone, it is able to interact with pain receptors in the brain to exert anti-inflammatory effects and it is still capable of exerting pain-relieving effects, although some say it is just not as powerful without the THC as there is a much better effect when both parts work together to achieve the “entourage effect”
