Pain Relief for Degenerative Disc Disease, Arthritis and Scoliosis
I have severe spinal scoliosis with a 25 degree thoracic curve to the right and a 45+ degree lumbar curve to my left. I also have arthritis in my spinal facet joints, as well as my hands, and degenerative disc disease in both my cervical and lumbar spine. For the last 20 years I took Alleve every day to relieve pain, which had begun to affect my kidney function.
Although I still lived with pain every day and had many physical restrictions as a result, I would not allow myself to take prescription pain medication.
Approximately 9 months ago I started taking CBD oil morning and evening, as well as using the lotion. I began to feel relief in about a week and after 2 - 3 weeks, I stopped taking Alleve completely. Since that time I am nearly completely pain free. My physical activity has improved dramatically and my life is so much better!
I use the 2500 mg tincture and take 30 mg twice daily. I also use the 1000mg lotion and apply it twice daily to my back and as needed, but generally once daily, to the arthritic joints in my hands. For me, CBD has been a miracle!
