With public and legal opinion beginning to sway in favor of cannabis, particularly as a treatment for pain, there are likely very few people with chronic pain who haven’t wondered if products derived from cannabis would help them. While medical marijuana is still illegal in many states and countries, in the last several years there’s been an explosion in products containing CBD, the compound in cannabis that can help relieve pain without the high.

It’s important to make the distinction between marijuana, which contains CBD as well as THC (the compound that gives you that “high” feeling); and hemp, which contains CBD but very low levels of THC. Many companies are now offering oils, lotions and edibles that contain CBD derived from hemp — products that claim to feature the healing, pain-relieving properties of CBD without the high.

If you’ve decided (in consultation with your doctor) to give CBD products a try, you might feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of brands to choose from, as well as the possible methods you use to take it. So we asked our Mighty chronic pain community to share which CBD products they swear by.

Remember: CBD does not work for everyone, and it’s up to you to check with your doctor about any side effects or interactions to be aware of. Although you’re unlikely to face legal issues from purchasing CBD products like the ones listed below, it’s still wise to be aware of the cannabis laws in your state or country before purchasing.
