Bullying, scare tactics, and threats.
Believe it or not, that’s what many desperate folks have faced as they simply searched for some relief for their painful conditions such as fibromyalgia. Because CBD arrived on the scene with a whole lot of undeserved baggage.
You see, CBD’s kissing cousin marijuana had sometimes been used as a recreational drug in the past. So the medical mainstream has insisted on lumping it in with that drug’s old checkered reputation (which has been rehabilitated, too).
Pain patients have been told CBD could be dangerous. They’ve been warned the all-natural pain reliever is possibly illegal. And they’ve been advised they simply shouldn’t touch the stuff despite its incredibly promising benefits.
To all of that, I say, “HOGWASH!”
And it appears that many Americans who are battling pain are saying it right along with me. More folks every day are finding out for themselves that CBD works for some of today’s most daunting health conditions.
In fact, new research has revealed what may be the most powerful testimonial for CBD yet. Scientists say in many cases, CBD delivers real relief from one of the most debilitating and misunderstood pain conditions on the planet… fibromyalgia.
So if you’re battling some aches and pains of your own, just imagine what CBD could do for you.
Study finds CBD can ease the WORST pain
There’s pain… and then there’s PAIN.
If you battle a bad back… migraines… or achy knees… you might think you know that second one. After all, any of those conditions (and more) can leave you feeling worn out, at your wit’s end, and praying for relief.
But all those conditions often pale in comparison to the agony of fibromyalgia. Folks who suffer from this whole-body pain condition can feel like every single one of their nerves is trying to burn its way out of their body.
Out of desperation, many fibromyalgia sufferers turn to increasingly heavy painkillers. Eventually, that can even include the dangerous opioids that have tragically led to addiction and death for so many suffering folks.
But an exciting new study reveals a path out of the pain.
Researchers report that an impressive 70 percent of tough-to-treat fibromyalgia patients who’ve tried CBD aren’t just happy with their results. The CBD was so effective it allowed them to decrease their use of other risky painkillers, including opioids.
In fact, many folks get so much relief they’re able to quit their pain meds altogether. And CBD isn’t just effective for fibromyalgia, either.
Cannabidiol benefits go beyond pain alone
People have been turning to CBD for other forms of pain, as well as problems with…
Just as we see in the new study, these folks often report so much satisfaction with the results that their need for painkillers and other meds plunges.
If you’re not familiar with CBD yet, it stands for cannabidiol. It comes from a species of the cannabis plant, just like marijuana. But that species, hemp, has essentially none of the psychoactive compound, or THC, found in marijuana (sometimes called pot or weed).
In other words, CBD can’t possibly make you feel “high.” And because it has essentially no THC in it, regular CBD it’s also perfectly legal in most places. You’ll need to check your own local laws to be sure it is in your state.
(For more on CBD check out my earlier report answering the top four most asked CBD questions here.)
Now, there are also CBD formulations that purposely contain some THC. In states where marijuana has been legalized, you can get these kicked-up versions at dispensaries. And many pain patients say they deliver even more relief.
That’s also the case in the new fibromyalgia study, as patients who used these THC versions were more likely to ditch their painkillers. Plus, some folks even go to the next step and try actual legal medicinal marijuana for pain and other conditions.
If you’re interested in CBD, with or without THC, or medical marijuana, check your local laws, speak with your doctor, and do what you find to be safe and comfortable for you.
