Steve – Cannabis and Pain

Ailment: Pain
Ingestion Method: Cream and Oil

Bio: My name is Steve. I have been a painter/decorator and general builder for 35 years.

In my younger years nothing troubled me at all, I’ve been healthy my whole life. But in the last 5-10 years through the repetitiveness of my work, my shoulder joints, especially the right shoulder which gets the most stress from holding my hand high painting, a dull constant pain has been emerging. I now can only sleep lying on my side, I can’t lie on my back anymore as it’s very uncomfortable when sleeping.

A friend rubbed a CBD cream onto my shoulder and remarkable the next day the pain had gone. The next day I opened my own cream that I purchased and put it on my knees because when you are painting you spend a lot of time on your knees so they do hurt and also that pain was gone. I noticed that after a few days I have to use the cream again, but again just a small amount.

I’m now also using a high quality full extract hemp CBD oil. I can’t say much about it yet, except I sleep better and my general well-being seems to be improving. I’ve also let some other friends try and they also said they had the best night’s sleep in years. I don’t take it every day.

As a side effect, which I’m really happy about, I’m also reconnected to my dreams since I take the oil. I’ve been a heavy smoker for years, so I stopped dreaming and it’s nice to have some dreams again.

I’ve had no side effects, none at all. Great food supplement, definitely will keep in my cupboard forever.
