For several years, I’d heard and read about people having success in treating chronic pain with CBD oil. I wondered if it might help with the issues I was struggling with. My job is largely sedentary. I sit in a chair at a desk, staring at a monitor and typing on a keyboard for approximately eight to ten hours five days per week. Although I try to exercise regularly and walk around every few hours, I experience pain in my neck, back and knees. I deal with tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome and bursitis in my hips. I researched CBD or cannabidiol and learned that it’s one of the most abundant cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is commonly used to treat epilepsy, bacterial infections, inflammation, depression and chronic pain. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, it doesn’t cause any high sensation. Full spectrum CBD oil includes a variety of cannabinoids, including minimal amounts of THC. Broad spectrum CBD oil contains an assortment of cannabinoids but no THC. CBD isolate only contains CBD. I initially shopped at the local dispensary for CBD isolate. A quick chat with one of the budtenders had me looking into the benefits of the entourage effect. The entourage effect suggests that a combination of different cannabinoids and terpenes work better together than on their own. They amplify the effects of each individual compound. Full spectrum CBD oil provides greater holistic rewards. Shopping for full spectrum CBD products has opened up a wide range of opportunities for me. The dispensary carries gummies, beverages, tinctures, vapes, ointments, capsules and all sorts of exciting consumption methods and strains.
