Question:

What strain of marijuana is best for the feeling of glass shards in one’s hands and feet? What’s the best way to use CBD Oil for Neuropathy?

Answer: 

When it comes to marijuana, ultimately the way you want to think about it is the amount of THC and the amount of CBD. And, clinically, what I’ve found is that mild to moderate neuropathic pain is best treated with high amounts of CBD whereas with severe neuropathic pain you do need some amount of THC in addition to CBD effectively treat the neuropathic pain. 

And, when it comes to the best way to use CBD Oil for Neuropathy, the vast majority of patients that I’ve treated really need to consume the CBD Oil internally – via edibles, tinctures, vapes, etc. – rather than apply it topically in the form of a balm, salve, ointment, etc. 

 

Question: 

What’s more effective for Neuropathy – CBD Oil or Medical Marijuana?

Answer:

It comes down to the severity of the neuropathic pain. Mild to moderate neuropathic pain is best treated by high amounts of CBD. So, you can use either a high-CBD marijuana derived product or a hemp-derived CBD product, which is also known as CBD Oil. And, with severe neuropathic pain, you do need some amount of THC in addition to CBD to effectively treat the neuropathic pain.
