Why Do I Take CBD?

Just like the guy on those old commercials for hair implants said, "I'm not just the president, I'm also a client".

My name is Kenny and I started 341 CBD because I want people to have the same benefits from CBD as I have, while not having to shell out hundreds of dollars a month to stay consistent with your CBD regime.

I retired from the US Marine Corps back in '93. I left the most of my knees with the Corps. I was always offered opiate based pain killers, which I refused. Taking over the counter pain pills didn't help, either. So, I just dealt with the pain as it became a part of my life.

Fast forward to the fall of 2018. I had been having severe pain on the left side of my upper body. I thought I was sleeping wrong. Every day, my neck, arm, and back would hurt more and more. Luckily, I had my annual check up at the local VA. By the time of my appointment, I no longer had the use of my left arm. The VA doctor had X-rays taken and prescribed me physical therapy.

Another week passed. I was still waiting to hear about when I was to start my therapy since I couldn't wait to get rid of my pain.

It's been two weeks since my appointment at the VA and still no word on when I was to start physical therapy. Since I was in excruciating pain, I went to the local ER. Ironically, the ER was next door to the VA. It took 30 minutes for the doctor to see me, which isn't too bad of a wait. But, it took her only 2 minutes to figure out what may be wrong. She had me do an MRI. Within 2 hours, the doctor called me in. She told me that she has set up an appointment with a specialist the next morning at 8am...the first appointment of the day.

The next morning, my wife took the day off of work so she could go with me to see the new doctor. I had no clue what his specialty was. As I was waiting in the exam room, the specialist walked in and introduced himself. He's a neurological surgeon. He showed me and my wife my MRI results. I had two degenerative discs in my neck and it was cutting off the spinal fluid to the rest of my nervous system. I had two choices...surgery or be paralyzed from the neck down.

Now, to the point of this blog post. I had to wait over two months to get my surgery approved. TWO LONG MONTHS of dilapidated pain. My wife couldn't even touch me because it would send pain to every nerve ending on my body. I HAD HAD ENOUGH.

I did some quick research on CBD and how it can help me until my surgery. I found that CBD can help ease the pain with the cannabinoids naturally in CBD. Cannabinoids reduce the hypersensitivity to pain. So, I bought some. I could not believe how expensive it was for a 15 day supply, but I needed some relief...NOW!!! Well, the CBD worked. Within 3 days of 2 doses a day, I started to feel less and less pain. Yes, it took some time, but the body needs a build up of CBD to be highly beneficial.

Well, in early March, I got my surgery and everything went great. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon or hospital. Thank you Menifee Global Medical Center.

Since that first day of taking CBD, I have not stopped. It helps me deal with the daily pain from my lack of cartilage in my knees.
