CBD For Fentanyl, Pain Control & Detox

February 20, 2018

Fentanyl is one of a number of prescription drugs used to treat the symptoms of Fibromyalgia and other nerve pain conditions

However, drugs like Fentanyl are addictive, and that’s not even the worst of it as they also have some seriously damaging side effects for long-term users. But when that pain strikes, most folks can’t think straight and immediately reach for the chemicals.

The good news is, however, that CBD from cannabis could treat the very same symptoms without any of the side effects or toxicity…

Question: My partner has been on a fentanyl patch for degenerative disc disease and cord equina syndrome for the last four years.I have 2 questions: First, would CBD/THC help with the pain? And second, as she really wants to come off her medication, would cannabinoids help with withdrawal symptoms?

Fentanyl is the most difficult opioid to stop because the longer the effect of any addictive drug lasts in the body, the harder it is to stop taking. Fentanyl is many times harder to detox from than oxycodone because while oxycodone lasts hours in the body, the effects of fentanyl last many days. Fentanyl is an opioid and opioids – as well and CBD increase the anandamide, the “bliss” hormone.

Any addictive drug that raises the anandamide levels is going to be a tough to overcome. A bit of trivia here – Anandamide is also released at the height of sexual intimacy, otherwise known as orgasm.

Any physical, mental, or drug related activity that causes anandamide release results in the person to seek more – of that same physical, mental, or drug that caused a surge of anandamide levels.

The choice is clear. Your partner needs to find an agent that is not addictive, has no withdrawal symptoms, maintains the anandamide level, also known as the “bliss hormone”.
And that is CBD.

For pain control, start on the CBD softgels provided by CBD Testers. Take them once a day for week while using the CBD tinctures as a “boost” whenever extra analgesia is needed.
Maintain the fentanyl at the current dose for the first few weeks while taking the CBD softgels daily. Following that, start the fentanyl taper. The fentanyl should then be tapered very slowly over at least 3 months.

CBD will provide the pain control needed and help overcome the addiction.

September 28, 2022

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]
