I apologise, I’ve been promising this post for months, and really it’s pretty easy to write, I just didn’t get round to it.
If you have a weird funky illness that gives you pain and sleep problems, the I really recommend CBD oil made from Cannabis oil.
There is no ‘hit’. Just pain relief and a good 6hrs sleep, sometimes more. Potentially a slight anxiety reduction as well.
I buy mine from CBD Brothers (The white label cheaper version). Now I’ve been told that lots of CBD oil sold online is from Hemp oil. I can’t be sure, but the results are great and they assure everyone that it’s from Cannabis oil.
I’m not fixed. But I’m functioning, and I’m sure it’s the oil that’s doing it. I’ve been taking it since September and I get through a bottle about once every 5 weeks.
I have better sleep than I’ve had in years, without any other supplements/herbs (I used to have a huge selection). I take it 1-2hrs before sleep (it can have a stimulating effect if taken too close to bed time). (I drop under my tongue, held there for about 3 mins).
Then I take it in the morning and I can feel the pain relief within about 10mins. The couple of times that I’ve forgotten to take it, have really proved how much it reduces my pain levels.
I also have the balm, which I can apply straight to any shooting pains or chronic pain that I get – this is amazing, because those sorts of pains would normally cause me problems for days (shooting pains in my head or arms in particular). I’ve only bought one lot of the balm and it still has loads left.
How does it work? Put very simply the theory goes that the CBD oil helps the existing Cannaboid cells in our body that are struggling to get rid of all the nasty stuff (technical term!), as they are already overloaded with Pollution and rubbish diets. So it’s helping the body to help itself.
What can it work for? I think anything that is brain or stomach based (where there happen to be lots of these Cannaboid cells. It’s is suggested that it can therefore help Fibromyalgia, M.E. CFS, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Cancer etc. Although I have a friend who is a nurse, who has found that some epileptic children who tried it had fevers and sickness (I don’t know where that CBD oil came from) – so as with all things it may not work for everyone.
I don’t know if it can help you, but I think it’s worth trying if you are struggling. Please let me know in the comments how it goes.
