Hi! I use two different CBD products, from two different companies. The salve is from AnandaHemp.com They make only one salve, so you can't order the wrong one. I get very stiff, unmovable toes, and the salve loosens them up, and takes away pain in them. I don't know what I would do without that salve. The other product is from CBDistillery.com It is their drops that I take under my tongue. I use their 1000 mg. and 2500 mg. drops, with the bit of marijuana in the drops. (under 3%, by Illinois law.) The drops help me to relax and not think about the pain. The pain also diminishes from the drops, but it takes easily an hour before I feel less pain. The relaxation is the good part. Both companies ship quickly, and are very reputable. Good luck! I think the CBD stuff is better than the meds, although I take meds, too. Lori Renee

I am also going to try the cbd. I am a double amputee I have had 98 surgeries and wore out. Ready to live life with less pain so I can enjoy my family more. If anyone has any advice on pain please give me any advice

Chronic pain – most everyone has it including me. Fibromyalgia is the word I live with because of all of the MVAs I have had in the past. My brain remembers all of the contusions and comas and broken bones and can't make sense of it all – so it doesn't know how to release the pain sensation that I feel everyday. I have learned that even though I have taken every kind of pain med out there and tried every kind of biofeedback, they are only short term treatments. Finally, none of them worked for me. The medicines made me loopy, hallucinated, or groggy, or I just got no relief anymore. The biofeedback helps but needs to be used with other therapies. Gels, foams, water, sun, injections, and the host of other possible advertised and promoted are good when specifically targeted for short term treatment, pre-op treatment or post-op treatment. But then again, this is not for long term care. Tolerance to pain can be found in both the mind and how you want it to rule your life and in your body. I have pain all of the time but I don't let it rule my life. I rule it by doing things that say I am in command. I seek a bit of the sun, warmth, enough sleep for my body to rejuvenate, eat nourishing foods, laugh and smile daily, and when I need it – I have my massages. For the last 10+ years I have had massages every two weeks so that I can have relief of the decompression and helps with my circulatory system. Your blood is your life. With adequate fluid intake, which most Americans don't drink enough water…. should be water with lemons in it….we all are very dehydrated. Our bodies are made of fluid and we suffer because of we don't have enough of it.
Our pain – headaches are because we are dehydrated….first thing you need to do is drink a cup of water and see if that will take away your pain and then take your medicine. I have to remind myself to drink enough – just enough so my heart can take it…since I have to watch how much I drink. My lemon water is filled with pulp and is sour but it works for me. I have gotten use to it. Try it on a slow basis. Celery juice in the morning – results will be noticed by lab work and weight loss.
Pain will not go away entirely, but if you keep busy with moving around.,….dusting, washing the dishes, pulling weeds, walking to the mailbox and back, talking to your neighbor for 5 minutes, rearranging a drawer, or even going through your closet and donating something to the thrift shop down the road….there is much to do and so little time to do it all. Hop to it. If you haven't had a massage – there are plenty of places around to try. https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/stress-management/in-depth/massage/art-20045743
https://www.amtamassage.org/professional_development/starting.html
Here are some interesting facts about the profession. I have been working with lots of them and know what they do for and with me. They even provide the CBD oils for your massages – which work very well. My last one was terrific and it was wonderful.
Any doubters – massages are for men and women….the price to pay is worth the time because it lasts. Put you mind to it. That's what counts.

I did a month of cbd gelcaps and saw no difference at all, the price tag is so steep, are all these products so expensive, I’d try another product but can’t really waste another $100
