The Pain! The Pain! As a cancer survivor I know pain well. During my treatment I suffered excruciating pain. I was given the good stuff: Vicodin and a Lidocaine epidermal patch. I smoked medical marijuana to help dull the effects of chemo but I wish CBD tincture was available. It’s non-psychoactive and is great with pain, anxiety, tremors and muscle spasms. CBD comes in many forms these days: CBD water, CBD gummy bears, CBD vape cartridges. Most tinctures are alcohol-based but Humboldt Apothecary is a woman-owned and operated company that uses only the highest quality cannabis and oils for their Sweet Jane CBD tincture.
The most common way of using the tincture is to put a few drops under your tongue; the website suggests five drops but I would start with three and go from there. Or try rubbing a few drops on the inside of your wrists, again start with a few drops, wait awhile and add more drops if needed. I was recently diagnosed with spinal stenosis. I have three vertebrae that are starting to shrink and as they shrink it becomes very painful. I put four drops under my tongue and in a half hour I could sense the relief not only in my back but all over my body. I also have neuropathy in my feet from all the chemo treatments so I put a few drops on the inside of my wrists and those veins are able to get the CBD in your blood flow. Again I felt very relaxed, in fact I almost fell asleep! Sweet Jane tincture contains coconut and cinnamon oils so you can even add it to your coffee.
