I have chronic pain. Specifically, I have a swollen disk in my spine that directly causes me pain and pinches a nerve that also causes me pain and a burning sensation in places on my body. CBD and Chronic Pain for me, go hand in hand.
I get up in the morning and, as I swing my legs around so my feet can touch the floor, the pain begins. I stand up and make my way to the door, slowly straightening my spine. Walking down the hall towards the kitchen, I begin to notice the pain just above my knee and I reach down to rub it and notice the numb feeling on the skin. I can’t really feel this area externally since the nerve that serves that area is pinched. But, what I do feel internally is a general sense of pain and occasionally an extreme burning sensation at this point. Its because of this and the pain in my spine I take cbd for chronic pain. (CBD is short for cannabidiol which is found in hemp).
Most days, this is exactly how my day begins. The only differences are how my day progresses. I normally, while my morning tea steeps, take my daily dose of CBD and by the time I’ve had my tea and am ready to shower, I can head back down the hall towards the shower and do not feel the same pain radiating from my spine, nor the pain nor burning in my leg. The numbness never goes away, but I can deal with that. Its the pain that causes me issues. In addition to the disappearance of the hurt and burning, I generally feel as if my joints are more lubricated and I’m able to move more freely throughout the day.
Does any of this sound like you and your morning? Many people answer yes. But, whether they’ve tried CBD or not is the only variation of the story. Now, honestly, we cannot report that cannabidiol will help you with your chronic pain (the FDA does not allow this) and, quite honestly, it does not help everyone. But, I speak with a lot of our customers each day and I hear firsthand reports how people, young and old are able to get through their day with CBD and chronic pain.
Chronic pain is not some made up condition that the big pharmaceutical companies have conjured up to sell more of their pills. Many people all around the world suffer from it. And, it doesn’t necessarily refer only to the type of pain I’ve described. For some, it can be arthritis. For others, it can be an old injury that acts up whenever the winter cold fronts start lining up to come through. Regardless the source of the pain, the end result still seems to be affected by CBD just the same.
