Which CBD Oil and recommended dosage for sublingual method of absorption to relax severe muscle spasms?

Hello, you may want to have a look at the following roundup of the most popular Qs asked about muscle spasms & soreness (see link below). The short answer to your question is: It depends — there’s no one-size-fits all solution as each person reacts differently to cannabis, its different cannabinoids, as well as the various methods of administration. This is due to a number of factors including each person’s unique biochemistry & endocannabinoid system, age, gender, what they have/haven’t eaten and when, mental state, health conditions, etc. That said, you may find Dr. Vanderveer’s (@andrewvanmd) answer helpful in which he recommends a topical containing CBD & THC as well as @melissa’s answer where she finds a sublingual tincture has alleviated her muscle spasms. Hope this helps!


Did you notice that the article and Dr. Vanderveer’s answer cited by lyp referred to THC containing preparations, not CBD oil? The issue of which cannabinoids are helpful for muscle spasm is one which comes up often. Most of the clinical reports of cannabis helping muscle spasm (eg in multiple sclerosis) have involved THC-containing preparations, and I would have to say if you want to use CBD oil for this purpose you will likely have to experiment. Here is the good news: there is no toxicity associated with CBD to limit your experimentation. I’d try several preparations at low and high doses to find what works best. If CBD alone does not give sufficient relief I suggest exploring various CBD:THC ratios, also available in preparations made for oral absorption.
