Disability And CBD/Medical Marijuana

Disability And CBD/Medical Marijuana

Does anyone know if disability sees CBD/Medical Marijuana as an approved treatment? I know it’s not FDA approved, so if your not being treated with an FDA approved medication would they say you don’t qualify for disability because to them your not being treated for an illness so you must be better and able to work, even though it may very well help people with any condition they may have? Thank you for any answers, gentle hugs

I am 90 years old now. Two years ago I was diagnosed with fibro myalgia. It got so painful I prayed the good Lord to please take me every night. My daughter sent me info. About an oil called CBD. I RESEARCHED IT AND ORDERED IT and within a week my pain started to ease up. I've used it for 6 months, my MD knows it. 90 percent of my pain is gone. So is my depression. My bottle costs about $80 and it lasts more than a month. I ordered it at a health store. It's been approved in California.

They don't recognize it yet. But many doctors do! It is something that you need to research. There is no addiction to it. And truthfully it has kept my cancers at bay. And also helped my fibromyalgia. They oil is what heals. I don't drink or do drugs. Never had. But this is medicinal. Not that different from what the native Americans have used. I turned to it as I am allergic to all pain medications. My daughter is a nurse and uses it lightly to keep her bipolar in check. Hope this helps.

@A MyFibroTeam Member I don’t know about your way but here, the doctors ask for urine test to make sure your taking what they prescribed you and your not taking any other drugs.

Thankfully cbd and thc is legal in Washington State, no more medical cards and dispensaries everywhere. Cbd's don't show up in your blood therefore you can still apply for disability insurance. Go to a Dr first, get documentation from your Dr and he/she will have information to send the disability board to help you receive it. In the meantime, use cbd's to help with pain. From what I understand, you need to use it daily for it to work. Not like cbd, thc combination that can work quickly. I prefer not getting high as sometimes I get anxiety from it. Hope you will receive your disability insurance quickly! They will always deny it the first time. The reason it's not FDA approved is because big PHARMA can't make money off of it! Anything natural won't be paid for by insurance. It might put them out of business if people started taking care of their own health whenever they could! Hope this kinda helps@LaVonneG.

I tried cbd oil recently & to be honest I didn’t find it helped enough to warrant the cost of buying it as it’s not cheap! I was still in pain and unable to walk, nothing really changed, so I’m not going to be buying it again!
