For those who don't know, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound in cannabis that has medical effects but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counter the psychoactive effects of THC. Some of you might also be familiar with CBD because it's been in the news recently as a potential treatment for some forms of Epilepsy. I've only been on these products for about three weeks and my life has been so hectic during this time frame, it's been tough to properly measure just how much these products have helped. I'll say this though, I have been able to increase my exercise (walking in the park) by about 100-150% without any significant physical repercussions. It's also helped me manage my pain quite a bit better and seems to be making the threshold for my "crashes" further down the line and less severe. I'm not expecting that these CBD products aren't going to cure my disease and every day remains full of pain and challenges, but I believe it is making a difference. It's more than just pain relief with the CBD products, it almost feels like it could be calming some of the inflammation in my brain and body. If anyone has any questions and would prefer to talk about this privately, feel free to shoot me an IM.
