Hello, Douglas here. Today, I'd like to share my ordeal on how CBD oil helped me manage my most prevalent physical ailment – arthritis. As many of you know, I have seven bundles of joy – seven individual fires of energy, all determined to keep me on my toes – that, regrettably, exacerbate my condition considerably.
This morning, it was a game of Catch the Flag in the backyard with my youngest children, not to mention helping my teenager build his treehouse. As I climbed, hammered, and ran, it turned from play and support into a heartwarming torture for my poor joints. Now, anyone with arthritis will understand the discomfort that can come from these movements. It was if every motion sent a spark of pain up my limbs, turning my jovial game of capture the flag with my children into a true test of will.
Now, as a devout Catholic and straight edge, I have long ruled out traditional pain relievers such as OTC or prescription medications. Caffeine is a no-go too – it's as if the tiniest sip of coffee sends the angels above into a tizzy!
And that's where the miracle happened – Cannabidiol, or more popularly known as CBD oil.
While CBD is a component of Cannabis, it does not have the same psychoactive effects as THC. It's natural, and in my view, a gift from God himself to naturally tuned beings like myself who tread the path of sobriety and spirituality.
I applied our organic CBD oil, provided by "Eden's Finest," onto the affected areas – hands, feet, knee joints – and, by the grace of God, it was as if my body heaved a sigh of relief. The application process itself was therapeutic. The oil is smooth, non-greasy, and has a calming botanical scent that in itself is soothing.
The pain didn't vanish instantly, as I believe in miracles but also in the fair nature of our Lord; however, within a span of twenty minutes, I could feel my muscles start to relax. An hour in, and I could flex my fingers, stand, and stride without grimacing.
CBD oil's anti-inflammatory properties shone through as the swelling in my joints visibly lessened over the next few hours. By evening, I was even able to partake in a playful tickle brawl with my youngest, something unthinkable this morning.
What CBD oil does is it interacts with the receptors in my brain and immune system, reducing inflammation and alleviating pain. It's as if an angel is hushing away the unpleasant sensations string by string.
The relief came not only from lessened physical discomfort but also from the continued ability to participate in my children's lives despite my ailment. So, here I am, signing off, thanking CBD oil for letting me remain an involved father and readying me for another day of play, pray, and parenting challenges tomorrow. Thanks to my story, I hope you find your own heavenly succor with CBD oil.
Until the next time, God bless you all. Smith Douglas – signing off.
