I’m thankful for CBD because I have been able to eliminate the pain resulting from severe nerve damage in my leg.
On the other hand, CBD has not been able to fully relieve the pain from my back.
It seems that CBD alone is able to take care of certain types of pain, but I hear that CBD works best with other compounds like THC. The problem with THC is the fact that you can’t avoid getting the “high” that is known to come along with it. A lot of people say the “high” is worth it because you are better able to manage the pain. I’m not sure at this point if I want to go that route or not, but it would probably be better than the painkillers I have to take along with the CBD. At least the CBD makes it so I don’t have to take too many painkillers. It also seems to keep me from becoming addicted to the painkillers. Friends of mine tell me all the time that I should just try the THC as well to see if that will work better than my painkillers. I know a few people who have tried both the CBD and THC extracts and they seemed to work successfully for them. I guess I just don’t like the idea of getting “high”. I want to have a clear mental state. I do know for a fact that CBD works great though especially because I don’t feel any pain in my leg any longer. One of these days, I will work up the courage to try out the THC.
