Can Cannabidol help the NFL?

I haven’t mentioned medical marijuana on my blog, mainly because it isn’t legal in my state.  However, cannabidiol (known as CBD) is legal in the US. (at least everywhere I know of)

The following quotes are from Win The Bright Lights Fade web page on Realm of Caring’s web site.

“CW Botanicals, a pioneer in hemp oil therapy, originally developed Charlotte’s Web (a hemp-based oil rich in cannabidiol, a non-euphoric cannabinoid) as a natural progenitor for overall brain health. Containing no more THC (the chemical that causes the psychotropic “high”) than the average hemp granola bar, their hemp oil delivers precise levels of cannabinoids, naturally occurring compounds that interact with neuroreceptors in the brain and the endocannabinoid system to regulate processes such as appetite, pain sensation, mood, and memory.”

“A recent study conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs and Boston University shows 96% of former NFL players suffer from the neurodegenerative disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is widely believed to stem from repetitive trauma to the head and can lead to conditions such as memory loss, depression and dementia.”  (this was brought to the public’s attention with the movie Concussion.)

“The Realm of Caring Foundation (RoC) is launching When the Bright Lights Fade, a campaign to raise funds for a series of studies exploring how the use of cannabinoids, specifically cannabidiol (known as CBD), can help treat and prevent the onset of symptoms associated with CTE and traumatic brain injury.”

About me and cannibus….I just ordered High CBD oil to use for pain control.  It takes a little while to get the full effect as soon as I know if it is going to work, I’ll post an update.  I have degenerative arthritis in my neck.  I can’t take traditional pain medications and most have undesirable side effects for almost everyone I know.  I am hoping this alternative will help with the pain and not cause me any ill effects.

Today I received a sample of The Fay Farm’s CBD Warming Muscle Rub.  I will write a review of this soon.  I’ve used it once and was surprised at how much it helped with my pain.  I want to give it more time before posting my review.

For the past year I’ve been using cannibus to control the nausea and vomiting during a vertigo attack.  I use it when I first feel the vertigo start and it has helped greatly.  Before using this I was taken to the ER a number of times because the vomiting was so severe I would become dehydrated and traditional antiemitics do not work for me during this time.  I feel this also helps to slow or stop a vertigo attack before it gets bad.  (yes, my doctors know I use this, I’ve had 2 say if it was legal in this state they would prescribe it, that’s why I started using it.)  I have do not use enough to get “high”, if I did I’m afraid I would have a vertigo attack because of it, therefore it does not help me with pain.  I am hoping as I start taking the cannabidiol it will help with the nausea and reducing my vertigo atacks all the time so I don’t have to use cannibus at all.  Again, something I will update on in the future.

  1. I know several people who have taken medical marijuana for pain and it’s helped tremendously.
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it will help you too!!!!!

    I LOVE YOUR NEW ANT PICNiC picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I think it is beyond shameful that medical marijuana is not already legal on every patch of soil in America – as well as foolish that our government won’t legalize, regulate (and tax) marijuana in all forms to anyone of legal drinking age — or at least legalize growing enough for one’s own use.

    Tobacco and alcohol are both FAR more harmful (and addictive, as are most of the pain meds), yet they are all legal. GRRRRRRR!

    Shall I say again how little I respect the actions of our politicians and that I find politics in general a giant toleration?

    Meanwhile, I sincerely hope the CBD works for you, Wendy. I’ll be eager to hear more about your experience with it.

  3. I’d like to know if mari would help with my pain. I have lived with it for so many years. Currently I take methadone. I don’t think it is legal in Pa yet. I’ve thought about the oil. I don’t want to get high. I smoked pot a lot when I was young. But as I got older all it made me want to do was go to sleep. I guess I grew out of it. But if it could now help with medical issues I’d sure be willing to try it. So I too would like to know how it is working for you and where you get it.

    • SonniQ – I haven’t started it yet, I’ll be starting on Friday. It will arrive on Thursday. I know with this I have to take it for a bit for it to become effective, so I’ll post along the way. I get it from CW Botanicals, you can Google that and you will find the Web site. If you have questions feel free to contact me through the contact form on my About page. I’ll know it’s from you if you go that route, I’m afraid I’ll miss it if I just give you my email. I don’t take any pain meds now. I need something. I can’t take methadone. I’m sorry you are still having pain.
      I don’t want the high either, makes me dizzy, I sure don’t need that.
      Good luck, I’ll write more as I find out how the oil works for me.
      Thank you for your interest in my blog.
      Welcome.

      • Thanks for responding. Ill check out that link. People who don’t live with pain don’t understand how it affects your life. Everything revolves around it. I will check back with your blog and read some more. I have 2 blogs and I’m writing a book. I live on my computer or tablet most of the time.
