    CBD oil?

    Mrs Mosca wants to try it, so I bought a little vial of it... $44 freakin’ dollars! I’ve shot a few droppers’ worth under my tongue. Man. Vile stuff. Haven’t noticed any difference. Back still hurts, shoulder hurts, fingers hurt from arthritis. But even if it works, I don’t think I’m spending $44 for what looks like about a week’s worth at the recommended dose. For that money I’ll find a dealer and take up smoking it again, after 40 years!

    • Weber 26.75" Kettle with SnS. Broil King Baron 5 burner. Akorn Kamado, and Akorn Jr kamado. Primo Oval Junior. Love grilling steaks, ribs, and chicken. Need to master smoked salmon Favorite cool weather beer: Sam Adams Octoberfest Favorite warm weather beer: Yuengling Traditional Lager All-time favorite drink: Single Malt Scotch

    I got a small tub of pain rub with CBD oil in it. Seems to work well. Of course I will have to compare it to one without just to see if it’s any better.

      I've not tried the CBD yet, but my wife has a bottle of it somewhere. For natural aches and pain from inflammation help, I've found tumeric (oil or pill supplement) to be very helpful, especially with arthritis type of inflammation.

        I tried CBD oil as a sleep aid, being a lifelong insomniac. Three drops. Like you said, Mosca , it tasted terrible, like moldy old grass would taste, I imagined. Didn't help a bit. I was up all night trying to get the taste out of my mouth.

        For occasional tendonitis in my foot I've been using Ted's Pain Cream, made by two neuroscientists (with lots of refereed articles). Seems to do the trick.

        I’m in the same camp as texastweeter . There seems that something is suspect in Mudville. All this time and now mankind has discovered a wonder drug that will relieve everything. Yup, this is the one, we’ve finally found it. Oh, & pay here, yes, big money.

          But maybe it will distract the masses until the next big thing is discovered. I'm sure there are some great uses for CBD. But my BS detector goes on high alert when something is promoted as being a cure-all.

          If you believe what's written about CBD oil, it cures everything. As they say on a medical podcast I listen to, "things that cure everything, cure nothing" and as Voltaire said "The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease". It's like homeopathy it "works" for some because they believe it works and it keeps them from doing something more harmful, so essentially they're amusing themselves.

            I use it occasionally and it's changed my girlfriend's life. She has had several major medical issues and elects to use it over pharmaceuticals. It also did wonders for Jasmine when she got old and her hips were bad. After she started taking CBD she started playing with toys again and was able to live to 17 1/2.

            Mosca Not sure about the laws in your state but a 1:1 CBD:THC is going to be more effective for pain but then you also have the high from the THC. You might also consider a topical form.

            As far as the nasty taste you can always cook with it. My girlfriend does so extensively. Here's a CBD breakfast from yesterday.

            One major caution is that I've read a recent article from my local paper where they bought a bunch of CBD products that are very popular in my area and took them to a lab for testing. Many of the products had less CBD than advertised or even no CBD in it. I would suspect some of you that found CBD had no effect probably used a product that actually had little to no CBD in it.

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
