***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Anybody using CBD oil for inflammation? I’m wondering what your results are. I’ve been thinking of trying some to see if it will work for minor back pain.

    Have used it for Crohns flare ups. I found it to be more reliable than say Tums or Motrin. Have some really good/close friends who produce a couple acres with a grant in KY. They farm around your neck of the woods.

    Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is oil that is extracted from the annual herbaceous flowering plant cannabis. The oil taken from the plant's secretions is used as a food supplement and as a medicine (we retail it as a food supplement). It was discovered in 1940 and the plant has over 400 additional compounds, which have been used throughout the world for millennia.
    How is CBD Oil Used?
    CBD oil is used to support the overall wellbeing of the body and mind. Today, it is used widely as a food supplement that activates receptors that communicate with the different systems of the body. CBD supports your overall feeling of wellbeing throughout the body, but does not give a sensation of “being high”, which is why THC, the other well-known active substance from the Cannabis plant, has been prohibited in most countries and considered a drug. This CBD guide explains further.
    The Endocannabinoid System - What it is and how CBD plays a role
    The Endogenous Cannabinoid System, also known as the ECS system, are cell receptors that communicate with various parts of the body to tell them when to start or to tell the process when to stop such as:
    • The brain
    • Organs
    • Connective Tissues
    • Glands
    • Immuno Cells
    The goal of the ECS is to achieve the overall balance of the body’s systems. The ECS chemical keys are the CB1 and CB2 receptors within the body, which lock and unlock systems of the body. Since cannabinoids play a significant role within the body’s functions, they constitute an important tool to maintain our overall wellbeing.
    CBD is a product that helps to communicate with the body to complete its natural maintenance and regenerative functions. Activating these CB1 & CB2 receptors in your body will give it balance, helping the natural signals of these bodily systems flow.
    CBD is an extract from the cannabis plant used to help support overall wellbeing. CBD products support your complete wellbeing by working with your Endocannabinoid System (ECS). In the 1990s, the first Endocannabinoid System receptors were cloned: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors have an effect on the brain, and nervous system and how our bodies feel overall.
    CB2 receptors influence appetite and immune system function. CB2 receptors also control the management of pain throughout the nervous system. It uses 2-AG and binds with enzymes throughout the Endocannabinoid system. The Endocannabinoid system also uses (2-AG) or 2-arachidonoylglycerol to control these body systems.

    My wife has tried it and felt "calmer" and "more relaxed" according to her. I'd like to try it for my knee/back pain, but I want to research it more. I need that gum that Phil and Tiger were chewing at the Master's.

    There are so many cbd options in Louisville now... it’s amazing. I tried the oral supplement from green remedy as they were walking distance from my office. I think it helped but did not buy a second bottle.

    I am not 100% on board, but also not sure what I expected either. I have had some back surgeries so over the last few years I have been drinking beer when I golf figuring being fat is better than opioid addicted. Well, life is ever changing and figured overweight wasn’t much of a bargain either.
    Now I am trying gummies with 5G of CBD and 5G THC and I am not 100% sold yet.

    Meh. I need to see if I still have the picture, but the place by my old office rendered hemp for CBD oil... They knew what they were doing and were definitely extracting CBD. (my picture is them carrying a load of hemp from my back area post a break in where idiots stole the hemp thinking it was pot).
    It's definitely deceptively advertised... but so is distance on golf clubs. That doesn't mean a new golf club WON'T add distance... you just need to make sure it adds distance for you.
    Totally ineffective... I disagree. I think there are some benefits, but I'm hoping there is more research done.

    Lab tests repeatedly reveal low to non-existant amounts of cannabidiol. Promotion is largely word of mouth and dependent on a poorly-understood relationship to cannabis (by the public). Reports of effectiveness are anecdotal. Not a single double-blind clinical study has shown effectiveness for anything other than poorly quantified endpoints.

    I ended up trying some to see if it helped. The first month it seemed to help, maybe mental, but after using it for 2 months I stopped. I'll stick with Advil and Aleve..

    We have given it to our dog (the one in my profile pic) who has anxiety related to reflections on the ceiling. He is noticeably calmer and more relaxed when on the CBD.

    I was into this way back around 10 years ago before it became main stream. Waste of money imo. Honestly all does is mask pain due to the THC content. You might as well be using pain killers. CBD does not solve the issue at hand. I'd rather invest in stuff that actually tackle the problem i.e Stem cell, PRP injections etc. CBD is just another money making fad much like Whey protein which is another joke. But i'd leave that for now.

    What? You’d rather be on painkillers? What kind of logic is that? I got rear ended by a semi last October and badly herniated a disc. I have been on tramadol, Vicodin, methocarbamol, taken cortisone shots, you name it. And I recently stopped taking the painkillers and I wanted to kill myself. I just got out of the hospital on Friday after checking myself in before I did anything I’d regret.

    Why would I ever want to take such habit forming, mind altering drugs, IF something is out there that can mask pain and not be addicting?

    Exactly! If i was ever at a point in my life where i needed to take painkillers to function normally, i'd rather use THC/CBD first before taking any opioids. I have a few old friends who received an Rx from the doctor for codeine or something similar before their lives started to spiral out of control due to heavy addiction

    I've been experimenting with a CBD salve on my knee which seems to always be sore. I've used it a handful of times over the last 4-5 days. I haven't noticed any real change and certainly no real dramatic change. I'm still skeptical but will continue to try it out for a bit to see if I notice much difference.
    My wife has been trying it as well and she believes it's having a positive impact, albeit, not a cure all change the world type of benefit. We have also used the drops and treats for our dogs (mini schnauzers... so horrible yappers). One of our dogs has some serious anxiety and when we give it to him about 30 minutes prior to a walk, he's noticeably calmer. Less barking, less hair raising on his back, etc. It doesn't cure all of his barking or anything like that, but, his tolerance threshold seems much higher.

    It’s an interesting discussion. If CBD can mask the pain and allow normal function, I’m all on board. OTOH, I’m not so prudish to think that if there was an addicting drug, that didn’t totally mess up everything in life, that I wouldn’t gladly accept the addiction.

    (Disclaimer: In no way am I trying to minimize real opioid issues.)

    Yeah. When I destroyed my knee in college they gave me a bottle of Vicodin horse pills with zero warning. They were great. I gobbled them with delight. Then, I went cold turkey not realizing what I was in for. Not good. Got through it with a mixture of stupidity and intestinal fortitude.

    Back to topic. I deal with plenty of joint pain now and CBD oil has been somewhat helpful. The most helpful, though, has been ibuprofen. I just don't want to rely on the IB too much, long term.

    +1. Sugar is the devil. Avoid it as much as possible, but it's hidden everywhere, and I do enjoy good chocolate.
    Just started using a CBD cream for lumbar discomfort. No better or worse than the Penetrex salve I also use. Neither are a cure all, but both help a little. The Penetrex os about a 1,000% cheaper.

    I use a CBD tincture (1000mg oil from a 1ml dropper) to help me sleep at night. My back keeps me awake, but the cbd helps me to stay asleep and keeps me from eating soma like candy.

    I tried the cbd vape pen cartridges, but they really did nothing for me. Went through 4-5 of them then just quit buying them.

    I usually take a 1ml dropper full when I get home from work and another 1 ml dropper full before bed. It’s expensive, but better than 2 somas per day.

    I started using the 3,000mg tincture as a last resort for my elbow before having PRP injections & it’s worked somehow. I take a dropper at bedtime. Don’t even have to wear a brace anymore, knock on wood.

    I have not tried it but want to---- The problem for me is I drive a truck for a living now and subject to random drug tests. Now I talked face to face with a medical review doctor on this. He explained to me that even with the laws and standards that CDB oil can contain a certain amount of THC and be legal for sale. He also told me some off the shelf stuff had been tested here in SC and contained more than the law allowed. Anyhow with all of that being said he told me that the test we take is so sensitive that the least little amount can make you test positive. Under Federal Law there is ZERO tolerance for that or other controlled substances. BTW We do as SOP a 7 panel drug screen as required again by Federal DOT law. So right now I can not afford to risk it

    If you have a CDL I would very far away from this. It's regulated. Some could have zero THC some could have a lot.

    I use a vape pen with THC and CBD for nerve damage on the neck. Does a decent job for me.

    In my line of work, I am also required to take the same DOT 7 or 9 panel with expanded opiates. I understand the concern and would never buy mine from anywhere that did not provide independent lab results for confirmation of no THC.

    BTW - all DOT testing uses standard cutoff limits. For THC, it is 50 ng/ml. Confirmation testing (performed only if initial sample showed positive/questionable) uses a much lower cutoff at (I believe) 15 ng/ml.
