Thanks for your feedback. I purchased 1500mg from an established, reputable brick & mortar store located in one of our local, upscale shopping areas. Thankfully there was no hustle involved (or I would have walked right out) and they were very informative, mostly echoing everything I had read on the internet. After playing around with dosing for about a week, I settle for 25ml AM & PM for almost 90 days. There were periods when I thought I was experiencing some relief but later considered that wishful thinking. I take no other pain meds but will continue to explore my options. I might add that I have not necessarily closed the door on CBD.
