CBD Oil: Does It Work? Here Are My 2 Cents

Over the last six months or so, I have heard many people online raving about CBD oil. CBD oil, also known is Cannabidiol oil, is derived from the Cannabis plant but without the THC. It can be used for both humans and animals and has a long list of benefits.

I have been wanting to try CBD oil for a while, but it is a little pricey and I didn't really want to pay that much without knowing how it would work or me. Luckily, I received some samples from Sanare Smart to try out for myself.

I received a small bottle of California Oil tincture and multiple samples of topical pain relief. I was ready to try it! I had previously read up on it but decided to read up on it again just to find out all of the benefits. The list is huge!

CBD oil helps to

  • Relieve inflammation
  • Treat epilepsy
  • Aid in weight loss
  • Alleviate pain
  • Relieve anxiety
  • Helps treat depression
  • Reduce blood sugar levels
  • Reduce nausea and pain from chemotherapy
  • Inhibit the growth of cancer cells
  • and so much more
I was ready to try this for myself, and here is what happened.

I gave the topical pain relief samples to my mom because she's a hot mess and has all kind of physical pain. Her biggest problem is her knees. She needs to have knee replacement surgery but is trying to hold off until she retires. Her doctor just started her on physical therapy recently and she had a session last week that was extremely painful. She was in a lot of pain afterward when she went to work. Her over the counter pain meds weren't even touching the pain.

She decided to try the CBD topical pain relief sample. We thought it would be like a lotion, but it was kind of an oily mess that didn't have the greatest smell. After a few minutes, the oil took the "edge" off of the pain. It wasn't gone completely, but it was tolerable and helped her get through the workday. It was definitely worth the oily mess and smell, plus the smell didn't last long. 

If you have read my posts on this blog before, you know that I suffer from both depression and social anxiety. I also have rheumatoid arthritis and could stand to lose a few pounds (or 50), so I wanted to try the CBD tincture for myself. To use the tincture, you place 5 drops under your tongue, then wait a minute before swallowing. It really wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. It had a slight orangey taste to it, nothing bitter or oily at all. 

I did notice that it seems to help with my moods. Even on the days that I forgot to take my ant-depressants, I didn't feel down or as if I wanted to cry over everything. I felt good! 

I have some stomach issues that pop up every once a while. I haven't been to the doctor for it, so I'm not sure if it's IBS or GERD or what it is. It used to happen on a regular basis, and then just stopped for months. It eventually started back up a week or so ago. I will feel extremely bloated and uncomfortable with horrible gas, and methane burps. I lose my appetite because I'm so uncomfortable. I woke up like this the other morning. Part of me wanted to eat breakfast, but the other part of me didn't because of these stomach issues.

I decided to take some drops of the tincture, and I swear, within a few minutes, my stomach calmed down. I felt some relief. I was seriously like "what the crap?" because I've tried a lot of stomach medications and nothing ever worked. I found my cure!!
