My CDB trial

12 posts in this topic

Okay, I just purchased a "one month supply" of CDB topical cream, a transdermal option, which I will try for a month and document my findings here on the forum. I may also supplement this with an occasional inhaled "e-cigarette", just to see if there is any difference or added benefit to that method of getting CDB into my system.

I chose the transdermal method after a long, detailed talk with the guy at the store, who said that the testing results have been very good, and seems to get absorbed quickly into your body. I apply it to the back of my neck, just below the hair line, 3 times each day.

I put some on last night before bed and had my 1st "acting out" dreams that I've had in many many months, so I'm not sure if that is terrible or it means I was sleeping good? I applied it this morning as soon as I got up.

There are WAY too many stories about the benefits of CDB (not necessarily PD related) to completely discount it, so why not try it, right? It's not cheap, but it's less than Azilect:blink:.

Wish me luck.

I found that CBD prevents me from sleeping and gives me energy and freedom of movement. 

THC helps me sleep

Well, SO far the results have been less than spectacular. I seem to be calmer (not that I was a wild man before CDB), but I am not sleeping any better. I have not seen any change in my tremor, and I seem to have ADDED a few more aches and pain throughout my body.

Now it's only been 2 full days, so I could very well need a little more time to give a fair analysis to CDB's benefits for my PD symptoms. Also, the trans-dermal method may not work as well for me as oil on the tongue or the inhaled options might.

MM...I'm wondering if you don't need 20% THC in the oil to notice a difference..

Also I read some sell you hemp oil which is not the same results...

Keep posting your journey on the oil....I'm totally interested on how it goes!!

Good luck buddy!!

I am slowly changing my opinion of the CDB cream I am using.....maybe. I now think I am seeing some overall improvement in how I feel. It's slight, yet noticeable. I will wait a few more days before giving it a total thumbs up, but I am cautiously optimistic.

Hi MM,

Thx DG. Just happened to pick up my 1st month of generic Azilect ($430) yesterday. Will be trying it on Saturday. I don't expect anything, since I never saw any obvious benefit from the brand name Azilect anyway.

I am discontinuing the CDB for now. I developed aches and pains all over my body that I don't remember having prior to the CDB usage. I will see if they all disappear in a few days. If so, I will wait a month and try CDB again....rule out if it was just a flukey coincidence.

How? The manufacturer discontinued the coupon? If you found an online coupon for $5, please forward the info to me. Thx
