Pretty sure I look sick today. People don’t seem to understand that unless they’re very close to someone with a chronic illness they won’t see us at our worst when we often do look sick because at our worst getting out of bed is difficult. My illness may be mostly invisible but the rashes from flare ups, the bags under my eyes from exhaustion, the sweat from fevers I get with flares, and the fact I haven’t showered in days is certainly not invisible.

Benefits of CBD For Fibromyalgia

CBD-Over all calm -A calm I fell through my whole body. When I would sit on the couch & watch a movie with my husband I’d get so uncomfortable & constantly move around, my muscles would just hurt & if I tried to ignore it I’d have to move & it would make sitting through anything difficult. •Better Mood -When I’m always in pain I become cranky & short tempered. Since starting CBD I honestly feel I laugh more & don’t snap at my husband over little things. Something I always hated doing was taking my pain & frustration out on him. •Better Sleep – I would always would wake up achey & feel like I didn’t sleep at all. I actually slept through from when I went to sleep at 11pm and woke at 5am, I couldn’t tell you the last time that actually happened to me. Even before behind diagnosed with IC I didn’t sleep well, always got up to pee or when I got woken up I couldn’t fall back asleep, my mind is always going it’s very difficult to shut it off. (I have had some nights still like this but it has definitely lessened) Would wake up every morning with a headache that would take hours to go away. Since taking CBD I don’t wake up with that headache anymore. I couldn’t talk to my husband for the first hour or two of the morning cause I’d just be mean from the pain. * Back pain has lessened. It hasn’t gone completely away but I’ve been able to walk my dog which was something I avoided doing because walking for long periods (even short periods) would hurt my back. * As for my IC I haven’t had a flare or any symptoms since I started taking CBD but when I began taking it was also around the time my mensural cycle was beginning and my symptoms always let up around that time. I’m still waiting to see how it goes as time goes on and keep updates on what happens. @my_ic_journey_

CBD is an organic and very powerful cannabinoid which can be used to treat many health problems such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, stress, skin issues, mood swings and more.

Studies state that CBD can be used to treat Fibromyalgia and its various symptoms as well.

In a study done in 2011, 28 patients suffering FM who were Cannabis users and 28 non-users were included in the study. Cannabis users referred to different duration of drug consumption; the route of administration was smoking (54%), oral (46%) and combined (43%). The amount and frequency of cannabis used were also different among patients.

After 2 hours of use, there was a significant reduction in pain levels and stiffness.

Studies also show that FM has some connection to the Endocannabinoid deficiency which states that an absence of regulation of the Endocannabinoid system can lead to such pain. So CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid system to regulate the FM symptoms.

A survey conducted by the National Pain Foundation of over 1300 patients suffering from FM stated that ” medical cannabis is far more effective at treating symptoms of fibromyalgia than any of the three prescription drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat the disorder,” in which 62% of the patients reported that medical cannabis makes them feel better.


So, CBD For Fibromyalgia can be consumed to fight the symptoms as well as the pain arising from Fibromyalgia. CBD is an organic remedy and will also not induce a high in you.
