I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. ”
Living in chronic pain daily is like being in a nightmare that you never wake up from. I live in chronic pain daily from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Endometriosis and a list of back injuries a mile long. I pray that the list does not ever get longer and ideally shorten this list. Until that time comes I live with it all the best I know how. Strong mental willpower, practise of constant mindfulness and the desire to live my life to its fullest. Never letting the mental exhaustion of the pain take over. Out of all the aspects of the battle against pain, mental exhaustion to me is the hardest part.
Over the years I have tried every medication you can imagine. Lots of failures lots of side effects that make you feel worse than the illness itself. Massage therapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, yoga, physical therapy, pain management classes. Thankfully, I have a very good doctor who has been by my side for ten years now. I know a lot of people are not that lucky and get pushed to the side and told to take some Tylenol and that the pain is all in their head, or to toughen up and just live with it. My dream would be to be medicine free and never have to take another pill again. This is where Honey Colony steps into the story.
Cannabidiol, the non-psychotropic compound found in marijuana, offers huge physical and emotional benefit to those suffering from chronic pain.
In this current day in age, Cannabidiol is finally being looked at by medical professionals, government agencies for medical use. It’s as if we are taking a step backwards hundred years in time and listening to our ancestors. And they were right all this time as far as CBD use for medical purposes. There are so many treatments available now for so many medical conditions where the Cannabis plant is proven to be so beneficial. Number one being Cancer, we are all aware of the benefits.
The new formations of oils, topical creams, food supplements being made now out of the Cannabis Hemp by-products now. The formula of extracting the CBD from the plant and removing the THC has proven to be amazing.
CBD gives people with auto-immune illness a natural choice of medicine with many health benefits leading to a better quality of life.
Here are some facts about Cannabinoid Hemp Oils:
#1 Anti-Inflammatory: Inflammation is swelling of tissue around joints, muscles, inflammation is your body telling you something is not right. And with auto-immune illness is one of the major causes of excruciating pain. Long-term inflammation will cause long-term disability. Most doctors will tell you to take over the counter NSADS like Advil which do work in the short-term but long term they are very hard on your liver and kidneys. CBA Oil won’t hurt your kidneys or liver!
#2 Muscle Relaxant: Helps relax tense muscles and tension in the body which in turn helps you be able to do stretches and exercises or just daily functions. With all auto-immune illness, you must keep moving to keep your joints, tendons and muscles moving. Otherwise, you will be locked up like the Tin Man with no oil in his joints.
#3 Helps with Sleep: Being exhausted from dealing with pain, or exhausted from ME or CFS can be the worst. Your body is unable to heal itself properly if you don’t receive a proper amount of sleep. I find there are nights I lay in bed in tears unable to sleep from exhaustion itself and from pain. The CBA oil relaxes you and helps you drift off. With a combination of Chamomile Tea and honey after you take your night-time drops. I am now able to fall asleep much easier.
#4 Anxiety Relief: Living with Auto Immune-Illness and high anxiety run hand in hand. I find the higher my pain and inflammation the higher my anxiety goes until I hit panic attack levels. The CBA oil has been keeping my anxiety levels fairly normal and panic attacks have eased off to a few times a week, as before they were a few times a day. CBA soothes the Nervous System.
#5 Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: This discovery was a great find as my husband has combat PTSD. And has been given every pill in the book to try to help him and all they do is make him sick from the side effects or just make him worse. And I have it from him, called spousal PTSD as well as PTSD from being in fear of waking up completely disabled again in the mornings. Some mornings, my husband has to carry me out of bed and around the house because I can’t move. This oil has really changed both our lives for the better.
#6 Non-Psychotropic: Here is the biggest bonus of all. It does NOT make you high in any way. There is zero THC in this product !
All of these benefits have made my life more manageable my pain level has dropped a couple of points on the pain scale. Which means I am happier and in the end being happier makes you feel better!
Anyone with Chronic Pain living with some sort of auto-immune illness I recommend giving this product some consideration. I have never endorsed a CBA supplement before in my life but I am so glad I have Honey Colony’s products in my life now!
