We often get asked about using CBD for Fibromyalgia. It's no secret that we worked closely with a local Fibromyalgia support group to develop our CBD product range and regularly attend talks about treatment for Fibromyalgia and Arthritis amongst other conditions. There's a lot of studies, reviews and word of mouth that supports the effectiveness of CBD when utilized correctly. We regularly have enquiries as a customers research suggests that CBD may be beneficial to them. As well as customers asking about whether they would be eligible for legal Medical Cannabis for their fibromyalgia symptoms (Click HERE for more info on this).
More often than not they're researching various pains associated with fibromyalgia, anti-inflammatory attributes of CBD, CBD Oils for Fibromyalgia symptoms and whether it can help with pain and inflammation. Unfortunately, we're restricted in terms of discussing any medicinal benefits of CBD as sellers in the UK, unlike the US which has different state laws, FDA approved options and wherein many states the cannabis plant is legal to grow and purchase.
Although we can talk to you in-depth about whether CBD is legal, provide research on CBD, explain the differences between tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD), what 'Hemp-Derived CBD' means in contrast to medical cannabis/medical marijuana and how the different delivery methods work. We can't go as far as directly talking about benefits past its ability to 'Maintain your health'.
As we regularly get questions about CBD for Fibromyalgia, we thought it was best to be able to refer these on to a first-hand account from someone who was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 10 years ago and has had great success in managing her symptoms with a few different approaches.
As much as we have learned a great deal from attending support groups, we hoped hearing a first-hand account from someone experienced with Fibromyalgia would be more relatable for those of you coming here to learn more about it.
The views and opinions in the following interview are by a third party not by Infinity CBD and we do not validate any medical claims that may be present in this article. Everyone's experiences are different with CBD let alone Fibro, however with first-hand experience and tips, being more informed about where to start will hopefully be beneficial to you trying CBD for the first time.
There are risks of addiction and other side effects from 'traditionally' prescribed medications for Fibro, have you done your research?
Fibro Warrior Interview
So let's get into it, introducing Chisel, the founder of the Dyfed Fibromyalgia Support Group!
Have you read this recent study on medical cannabis and fibromyalgia from the UK?
Hi Chisel, introduce yourself to our readers and let them know your Fibro story!
"Hi, my name is Chisel, I’m 50yrs old and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and M.E 10yrs ago. Here is a short account of how I got here today med free and able to better manage my pain & illness.
When I was first told I had fibromyalgia in 2010. It was, at best good news and bad. Good in that I finally after years of suffering so much pain had an answer, the bad news is there wasn’t a lot I could do about it.
Doctors knew very little about it, some didn’t even believe it existed, told me I was lazy, or it's a women thing, I’m overweight or just plain imagining it. Feeling very alone and getting worse I sank into anxiety and depression which led to panic attacks and more pain, I become all but bedridden from the pain and constant fatigue, I couldn’t work so I had to give it up.
This went on for over 2yrs, got no help/ empathy or constructive advice from any medical professionals, they just gave me more meds that were having little or no effect, or worse the side effects were making me worse or like a zombie. Finally, I decided enough was enough I was coming off my meds and would find alternative pain management. So I decided I would try to find out as much information about what fibromyalgia was, and how to help myself improve.
Using my background in holistic therapies, nutrition, and aromatherapy I studied all I could find out about fibromyalgia. Looking at all the alternatives to help me heal, or at least improve my symptoms, for which there are many, 200 plus as I have found out.
It took me over 7 years studying to find out all I could about fibro, lots of trial and error testing or trying out new foods, natural therapies, natural pain relief, exercise or other ways to help, there were a lot of fails but some wins where I could get to where I am today.
Yet I’m still studying and looking for new results in research regularly. Today I have a strong understanding of fibromyalgia and chronic pain and for the last 18+ months I have been sharing my knowledge and findings with others in form of starting a support group online and doing workshops, meets, and hydrotherapy sessions in West Wales.
Although there is no cure, I have found ways to lessen the effects of fibromyalgia symptoms and pain in myself and am now meds free and only using natural pain relief and therapies to manage my illness. Enter my amazing find on the effects of CBD…"
The term "fibromyalgia" often brings to mind a vague image of unexplained pain, fatigue, and discomfort. However, these vague symptoms are a very real and challenging part of my daily life. As a fibromyalgia patient, I am intimately familiar with the silent struggle that comes with managing this condition, and break down some of the most common questions.Read more
Has CBD helped with managing your fibromyalgia and how did you first learn about CBD and decide to try to use it to help with your Fibromyalgia?
"During my years of research, I found a lot of mentions about CBD oil and its amazing effects on pain relief. So I started looking into it, the information was varied and bit confusing but found a lot of positive testimonials, so I looked into obtaining some. The strengths and types were very confusing, so I asked a friend that had used it to get me some.
OMG the difference it made after a few days! I slept better my head was clearer and after a couple of weeks. I found my anxiety improving and I was starting to feel my old self again and pain felt lessened! I was so happy!
But after I could no longer get any from that supplier I tried elsewhere, this is where I learned that not all CBD is the same and varies vastly in cost and purity as I found out from the many different brands I tried. As I couldn’t find any real knowledgeable information I found that a lot of CBD was useless for my fibromyalgia as it was too low quality or extremely expensive with no guarantee of its effectiveness.
Then I met the lovely Rowan when I walked into the Pembrokeshire CBD Centre store in Haverfordwest, which had newly opened. What I found was not only the best quality CBD that works amazingly but an extremely knowledgeable man in all there is to know about CBD, he helped find me the right CBD Oil and CBD products he thought could help with my Fibro pain and educated me in what CBD is, how it helps, how its made etc.
I came out feeling I finally had some useful knowledge to help me manage my pain and feedback to forward to my Fibro support group. I have since met the rest of the team at Infinity CBD and they all know their stuff and are a great bunch of people always ready to help or provide information on CBD products.
This is why I then asked them to help my support group by doing information talks at my workshops which they gladly did and in turn, we have been able to help them understand and raise awareness into what fibromyalgia is and how it affects us. That information gained from talking to my members and other sufferers of fibromyalgia has been used to tailor-make products that help those with chronic pain & fibromyalgia....
Thanks guys your defo my life saver and to many others on my group."
In the complex world of wellness and healthcare, CBD (cannabidiol) has emerged as a beacon of hope for many. Particularly, individuals battling fibromyalgia have found solace in the hope of a therapeutic potential of this plant-derived molecule. As we delve into this topic we'll explore the question: how long does it take for CBD to work for fibromyalgia?Read more
As you’re active with many people with fibromyalgia, how would you say the general experience with those who’ve tried CBD is?
'Using my newly gained knowledge of CBD from the guys at Infinity CBD and my personal feedback on how it was working for me and how it helped my pain and reduced my anxiety etc. I put this to my Fibromyalgia support group, with that and using the knowledge they gained at the CBD talks Rowan provided at the workshops, many decided to try CBD to help them to reduce their pain and help manage their symptoms and try come off, or reduce the many medication prescribed to them for fibromyalgia.
A high percentage on my group have lowered their meds and found better pain relief and better pain management with CBD, some like myself are totally meds free and have improved so much. CBD is not a cure for fibromyalgia or chronic pain but it can help massively help in reducing your pain and anxiety and help you get a more restful quality of sleep, which as we all know helps us recover from bad Fibromyalgia flares and aids less pain as it allows our bodies to rest."
Many people are different in terms of what works for them and find different delivery methods to help them more than others, so with Fibro complications on top of that what would you say the most popular method/ combination has been?
"CBD works differently for different people I have found from feedback on the group, maybe 1% it doesn’t work for or some have found the oil doesn’t help but the topical balms and salves work better, but for the majority, it helps a lot, different strengths work for different people as do different products.
I find the CBD Oil is best for my anxiety and PTSD and to aid sleep and the infinity CBD balm is great for daily use on the spot pain relief rubbed on to joints and tender areas, plus I use the Calm Stick when needed when I get muscles spasms or headaches it’s like a miracle in a bottle and a huge favourite with my members on group lol, especially as we can carry everywhere with us as its a roll-on bottle."

CBD oil has emerged as a promising therapeutic option for individuals with fibromyalgia, and since we've been working in this industry and giving educational talks at fibromyalgia support groups since 2018, we thought we'd jump in and offer up some advice, including what he most popular strengths and products are for fibro!Read more
Do you have a non-CBD related message for those reading this with fibromyalgia who may be going at this alone or without finding solutions to manage it yet?
"Before I go here’s a quick shout out to anyone suffering fibromyalgia.... You are not alone, there is help and support out there, and you are stronger than you realize, you are a fibro warrior and if you are finding it hard to cope or you want to find out more information to help you in ways to manage this awful illness, then you can contact me through my support group on Facebook, look up Dyfed Fibromyalgia supporters and message me.
This illness can take so much from us but with fellow Fibro sufferers who understand it and can relate it can make the load seem much lighter and you can find friends who understand and empathize with what you are going through.
And if you want more advice on CBD, message the boys at Infinity CBD as they are only too happy to help answer your questions."

For reference the Althea T25 Powdered Donuts was sourced legally via prescription to myself with chronic pain being the primary condition this is used for.I hope you find this useful and always welcome feedback if there are other specific points you would like us to cover in future reviews or whilst updating these ones. We break down our reviews into some key points that we find useful for those looking to explore a new strain for their treatment. Talking purely in terms of the experience and effectiveness around its medicinal purpose/ use.If you’re looking for strain comparisons/ reviews to relate to BM offerings, or other older medical cannabis supply chains globally then you’re looking in the wrong place. The way this strain is being discussed is with relation to a chronic pain prescription, although this prescription has also been useful for gastro, and nausea symptoms that relate to my condition too.
Well let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed by the level of terpene preservation as I immediately got a nose full, but not of the tone I was expecting. It was almost like a strong mustard/ horseradish at first which through me a curve ball. However, upon breaking them up and getting the air exchanging a pleasant but subtle vanilla popped through with an oh so familiar mint. I wish they were bursting with these tones as I’m sure they once were in the grow room at Natural History in Canada, but considering these are tones off of initial inspection I’m happy. Other Adven strains never impress this well off the bat.
