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.
