So my musings continue on the endocannabinoid system and deficiency of cannabinoids causing discomforts and disorders. Many people are suffering from different pain disorders. But it seems that there is a common thread of relief. Cannabis Sativa "L", hemp derived cannabidiol is that common thread. I am constantly amazed how CBD relieves pain. I have created a line of Hemp Relief Roll-On's that address specific discomforts as CBD appears to be the "common thread" for all pain disorders. Besides hemp derived CBD, each roll-on contains specific Young Living essential oils for specific discomforts.
There are many clinical studies underway, but one that recently caught my eye: "In a small study 28 ﬁbromyalgia patients took cannabis and were compared with a control group of patients who did not. Two hours after cannabis use, there was a reported ‘reduction of pain and stiffness, enhancement of relaxation and an increase in somnolence and feeling of well-being’. Another recent survey comparing the efficacy of cannabis with pharmaceutical drugs generally used for fibromyalgia found that cannabis came out best compared to the prescription alternatives."
I have conducted my own test on my husband, John, who kept experiencing red swollen, painful finger and toe. Other than these painful flareups John is in excellent health and doesn't take any pharmaceuticals. We changed his diet, many times for over a year. We finally isolated it to nightshades, specifically peppers, which he loves in ethnic foods. So totally eliminating spicy peppers we managed the flare ups. But as soon as he would consume his favorite Mexican food, the swelling and pain would return. Applying CBD topically totally took care of the pain and swelling, but would return if he ate spicy pepper dishes two days in a row. So, I seized the moment to test my theory that his pain was due to a deficiency of cannabinoids within his endocannabinoid system. John began taking a dose each morning and if the pain/swelling came on, he took more, and he enjoyed his favorite Mexican and Thai food weekly, (several times). After about the first month, the need to consume CBD due to pain/swelling was gone. He continues to take his morning dose, supplementing his endocannabinoid system and has not had an arthritic flare up for over 6 months. I am so happy I have found CBD.
It is my dream that everyone enjoy their lives pain free.
