How to administer CBD oil for Fibromyalgia

If you are new to my blog let me give you a brief introduction. I am a mother of five sons and a VTCT qualified complementary therapist Level 3 (Aromatherapy, advanced massage therapist, and advanced reflexology) I am also a lady that can no longer practice my profession due to chronic illness so I prefer to use my expertise to write about complementary and alternative therapies for chronic illness.

I am not promoting this brand of CBD it is simply the one I use and gain benefits from. Lots of my readers may not know how to take CBD as a medication for Fibromyalgia so this is my experience and how I use it. 

There are many places you can buy CBD here in the UK and I am sure other countries are the same. Not all are the same so don't think cost is a reflection of the best and also check the strength of CBD within the bottle.

The one I use is 25% CBD  £17.95 for a 10 ml bottle. (Link) There is one sold on the high streets by a well-known chain of health stores is 2.75% CBD £19.99 (Link) 

The more expensive one is very weak! So trust me not all CBD gives the same benefits.

CBD is the abbreviation of cannabidiol, this is a cannabis compound with healing properties. 
Most people have heard of Cannabis and of a chemical called Tetrahydrocannabinol THC which is the principal psychoactive constituent eg is the ingredient that gets users high. 
Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high.
CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as THC. These pathways, called CB1 receptors, are highly concentrated in the brain and are responsible for the mind-altering effects of THC. Although CBD and THC act on different pathways of the body, they seem to have many of the same medical benefits. 

In most cases, the oil is taken orally. It comes in a tincture, which contains the oil. The dropper allows users to measure out the correct dose and to release with ease.

If you want to read about CBD in depth, this is the best article I have read so HERE is a link

Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high so it is now completely legal in many places. 

I am based in England and CBD is not covered by the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 or the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 but please check your country and/or state law accordingly. 

Each day I take 4 drops under my tongue.  

The oil comes in an ear dropper bottle. It is usually brown glass as this protects the shelf life and the oil from harsh sunlight. Before use, I always shake the bottle within the palms of my hands. This helps to blend any extract that collects at the bottom. It also improves the absorbability of the oil by getting it closer to body temperature.

The bottom of the mouth is a membrane that's filled with capillaries. The medication dissolves in the mouth and enters the bloodstream directly. If you just swallow it, it has to pass through the digestive tract and be absorbed by the intestines before it can enter the bloodstream. The medication will be substantially weakened or even completely destroyed. Allow the oil to absorb into your system by holding the oil in your mouth for 60-90 seconds before swallowing. You may choose to swish it around, but it’s not necessary and I always think of my teeth and stains. 

CBD Oil tastes earthy, it is not the best of flavours but I have to admit I would chew on a sweaty old sock if I thought it would ease symptoms so I look beyond the taste. If you find the flavour to be too strong, take a drink of orange juice as you ingest the oil to mask that earthy flavour.

Hope this helps in some way. It is super easy to use, natural, pure and allergy free product so I am sure it would benefit many people looking for a natural method of controlling symptoms without the side effects of conventional medicine.

  1. Thank you for your informative article. I do need to point out however, that the blue edition cbd oil from cbd brothers is 5% not 25%. The 25% on the product description refers to the strength of the paste used to make the oil, not the end product (oil)
