Hi Chris,
I did not have good luck with CBD. I tried a level 5 through one of the health links and it didn't work. Purchased another brand at Guildford Medical in Greensboro, NC and that didn't work either. Regularly, I see a chiropractor for degenerative disc disease in my neck. He also recommended CBD through his source, also a level 5. Unfortunately, the cream has not worked on me. Until NC legalizes medical marijuana, as well as the rest of the country, our sources are not going to provide the potency needed for severe, chronic pain. May your CBD search prove more beneficial for you than mine was! Please keep us posted! Thanks for your input! Sherry

Good afternoon @curlylocks. Well, that's a bummer! My survival would be at stake. It doesn't look as if Guildford Medical would sell you ineffective products. My next stop was to take a look at the Level 5 products. I see that the active ingredients are listed as menthol and camphor in one paragraph. "Camphor (11%) and menthol (16%) are combined at the highest legal limit for non-prescription topicals in order to deliver holistic pain relief."

Here is what I can tell you from my experience. I had a "coach" when I began my search for cannabis products that would control and manage my neuropathy pain. At that time I was told that I needed to make sure that the product had THC in it along with the CBD.
Here is a link to an article in Leafy about the issue. I find Leafy a reputable cannabis industry source.

Although I had to work out the specific dosages, and relative CBD/THC amounts, I now am able to put together a daily medicinal protocol that handles quite a bit of the painful discomfort of not only neuropathy but also some of the standard aches and pains of aging.

I would hate to see that your lack of effectiveness from Level 5 may have more to do with what is in the jar than what is in your body. Will you please straighten me out if I am missing something?

May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering,
Chis
