I work in an animal shelter and have made it my life’s mission to rescue abused and neglected animals. For nearly twenty years, I suffered crippling pain and tried all sorts of weird medical treatments, simply hoping for relief. Now, I can finally take my dogs for a walk and get down on the floor and play with my cats without pain, thanks to CBD oil. When I was in high school, I fell off the bleachers during a basketball game and suffered a traumatic head injury. After the accident, I went to a specialists because of terrible pain in my jaw. I learned that I had one of the most complex jaw injuries doctors had ever encountered. Over the years, the pain intensified, and because I also suffer from Central Sensitization Syndrome, the pain is worse and lasts longer for me than most people. The combined effect of my symptoms has led to anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. In my mid-thirties, even my career was falling part. I was dealing with slurred speech, memory loss and dizziness which caused me to miss a great deal of work. I sometimes appeared drunk, because of the my symptoms, and was finally asked to take a medical leave. Although I was beginning to give up hope, I tried just about every pain treatment method I could find. I’ve seen countless doctors and tired all sorts of traditional and alternative medicines. At one point, I was taking up to 25 prescription medicines per day, and even met with a holistic hypnotist. Unfortunately, the conventional medications caused adverse side effects. I simply got lucky one day. My sister started dating a guy who works in the medical cannabis industry. He introduced me to hemp oil about eight months ago. On the second day of taking hemp oil, I noticed the tremors were gone from my hands. I could get out of bed and move around without severe pain. I’ve lost weight, no longer take antidepressants and have significantly decreased my intake of other medications. Because of CBD, I can now take long walks with the dogs and I’ve never felt better.
