So, I’ve been dealing with RSD for a long time now. I still have not done any sort of pain management. I have considered it, I have even looked into it. Then I think, do I REALLY want to damage my body with more chemicals? Nope, I don’t. Instead I decided to add in more natural things to help. I’ve already posted about eating primarily raw foods, that helps quite a bit. I have also talked about massage and how it has helped me. I have also added essential oils to my daily routines. My newest add in to my lifestyle changes would be using CBD from the Hemp plant to help manage and treat my condition.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol is one of at least 85 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than tetrahydrocannabinol. Wikipedia
CBD doesn’t get you high.
CBD is legal because it is NOT THC. THC is what gives people the “high”. CBD is a great treatment option for people like me. The anti-inflammatory effects from CBD have truly changed things for me. Reduced inflammation means less pain. I’m also using it to treat my anxiety, depression and insomnia.
I am so thankful that I tried CBD as it is changing my life. I’m having a higher quality life and feeling better than I have in years.
Am I cured? Well, no. There is no known cure for RSD. Am I pain free? Nope, but any improvement is improvement! I’ll take what I can get! Let me know in the comments if you have any questions!
