Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past several years you’ve heard about CBD. But if you’ve NOT heard about it here’s a brief into to get you up to speed.
From the Harvard Medical School: Cannabidiol (CBD) — what we know and what we don’t
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.”
CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.
CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain.
And here’s where it gets interesting… for an old and out of shape guy like me.
I recently received some sample products from 43 CBD Solutions that I was really impressed by. As I’ve said in previous product reviews I have to start off by saying this… I’m not a pot guy. Have never been a pot guy. That being said, if you are anti-pot or anti-CBD please… don NOT let those feelings taint CBD products for you. They’re really pretty awesome.
The Peppermint Tincture had a great taste, though that’s not really what’s important here. About two days before I tried these products I’d just tweaked my neck. Believe it or not, I was stretching while sitting at a red light and I felt a shooting pain in my neck / back. Not sure if this was a ‘pinched nerve’ or what but damn did it hurt. Father Time keeps on winning.
The salves smelled great and weren’t greasy at all. I’m not sure I’d use them around your eyes as they give off a real ‘Vicks’ vibe but they’ve got a smell and feel that tells you things are happening as soon as you put them on.
I’m thrilled to say that these products REALLY worked. Not sure if you’ve ever dealt with one of these ‘pinched nerves’ but typically when I get them it’s WEEKS before I’m back to normal. I took a couple of drops of tincture and used some of the 250mg salve and within a week or so I was back to as good as new (or at least as good as this 44 year old fat guy can be.
Special thanks to Tyler for providing me with samples to try (and for staying on top of me as life got in the way and this review got lost in the shuffle).
