I’m 59 and in good shape, but when I’d wake up in the morning, everything just ached. I’m on my feet all day, and I ached by the end of the day. Specifically, I was having problems with my lower back and my neck and shoulders. There’s no specific illness; I just hurt all the time.
I had been taking about 800 mg of ibuprofen two or three times a day. Then I was turned on to CBD capsules and it was magical. Within about a week of taking the CBD capsules, I was completely off of the ibuprofen.
The benefits have been twofold: The pains are gone and I sleep better. My mind was blown—how could you take one little capsule and actually feel that much better, plus sleep better? I hadn’t felt that good in probably 10 years.
I’ve been taking the capsules ever since, every day at bedtime for close to three years. It’s made a huge difference for me. I absolutely hated that I was taking so much ibuprofen. I think that if there’s even a chance that somebody can feel better naturally by taking something that’s from a plant rather than a chemical, it’s always worth the try. There’s nothing to lose if you try CBD, and everything to gain.”
