A Patient’s Road to Pain Relief

Sep 20,17

By Ellen Lenox Smith (from her article “Why you should consider cannabis“) Rhode Island: Why — at the age of 57 — would one ever consider turning to medical cannabis? I wondered the same thing after being sent to a pain doctor just before another surgery in 2006. After reviewing my records and seeing that I was unresponsive to pain medication, the doctor clearly had no idea what to suggest, except trying medical cannabis. I was born with Ehlers Danlos syndrome and later also added sarcoidosis to my life. I was living with chronic pain that was preventing me from sleeping, thinking straight and functioning. From birth, I had one issue after another reacting to medications. And after 22 surgeries, you can imagine the horror of all I had to endure and the added pain of never knowing the proper relief my body could have from pain medication. Eventually, a DNA …

Top 30 CBD Uses And Benefits

Sep 7,17

Virtually tasteless and suitable for oral and topical uses and internal properties, cannabidiol CBD may be the most versatile phyto nutraceutical product on the market today. There are very few body, health, and mind issues that CBD cannot help. CBD has an amazing effect on the body, which can relax muscles when applied topically. It also has calming properties so it can help relax the mind and ease mental issues when taken orally. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of dozens of non-psychoactive cannnabinoids found in the plant. CBD can originate from either the cannabis plant or the hemp plant. Experts argue that both products are the same. However, retail level CBD comes from hemp, particularly the Cannabis Sativa which contains trace amounts of  the psychoactive cannabinoid THC. To the best of our knowledge, the Federal Drug Administration is able to regulate hemp CBD oil. The FDA defines hemp CBD as …

Topicals are processed forms of cannabis that are primarily derived from its oils and offer some of the most effective methods of delivery for pain relief. They work by penetrating the affected area with intense, targeted action. Pain is something most of us understand very well. Those who suffer from pain on a daily basis are left to study all sorts of pain relief treatments, medications, exercises, drugs, regimens, and more. The secret to unlocking your own pain relief isn’t always found in a pill bottle. It includes a variety of changes such as eliminating products that contain neural-toxins, stretching 3-5 times a week, massage, and cannabinoid-infused salves rubbed all over sore muscles and joints. Understanding the differences among cannabinoid topicals is essential for finding the best type that meets your needs. Here’s what you should know about cannabinoid topicals.   Lotion Lotions and moisturizers are enriched with oils and …

Veterans, PTSD, and Pets: 4th of July

Jul 1,17

4th of July is here Independence Day is a time of celebration, but the Fourth of July festivities can be extremely stressful for veterans, pets, and other PTSD sufferers. Sudden, unexpected changes can trigger traumatic memories. In recent years, awareness campaigns went viral when neighborhoods started seeing yards with signs saying, “A combat veteran lives here, please be courteous with fireworks.”  The news stories were heartwarming and all, but did the mass awareness actually work? The odd part about all of this awareness-raising is that it doesn’t accomplish very much. The underlying assumption is that we have control over people’s behavior — that they make bad choices because they lack the information to make a proper decision otherwise — is, wrong. And what’s worse, awareness-raising can actually backfire, encouraging the negative behaviors. We don’t have control over other people’s actions, but we do have control over our own. Let’s talk about …
