Ok, I figured it would be best to start a fresh thread rather than have all the info dotted around. The reason - after a (very short) trial with minimal results and questionable products, I have decided to give CBD a full 30 days to work. I’ll be posting daily for the duration, detailing what I have used that day, what my day has been like, my mood and details of any medication taken. What we are hoping to achieve - I won’t rabbit on too much, so to cut a long story short approx 7 years ago, on a building site, I fell through a floor/ceiling from the third floor, hitting my neck back and arms on each beam until finally ending up on the ground floor in a heap. I was off work for 7 months after this, prescribed various opiate painkiller which are also highly addictive with lots of nasty side effects. It was total hell coming off of them. I had 7 months of physio and two separate MRI scans. The end result was pretty much put up with it, with a repeat prescription of codeine, tramadol and others that I forget the name of. I’m currently only taking codeine on a very bad day, we are talking three times a month maybe. My job can be stressful at times and I am often working until the early hours, it’s quite a job to get to sleep when I need to sleep so I’m hoping this will help with that too. Since the accident I have also unfortunately been involved in two car accidents, namely where the third party has proceeded to drive up my arse. The most recent one was June last year. I suffered whiplash injuries in this accident which also kind of felt like my back pain went back 5 years. The pain doesn’t stop me doing day to day stuff but it is always there pissing me off and forcing me to make stupid noises when bending or lifting things. Stats - I’m not sure if this makes a difference but I will list this anyway. 30 years old Male 6 foot 2 inches tall Around 13 stone Always active and busy running around. Overall mood - almost always stressed but overall happy. I am married with two young children, i don’t think I’d have the time to be “down” if I needed to. The products - we’ll be trialing CBD products based on members recommendations. All the products in this trial have shown excellent results for other members and this is the reason they have been chosen. I’ll list all the products in the next post, with links to those products and their prices. Medication - as said above, I do have codeine on repeat prescription and I also take ibuprofen and paracetamol regularly. For the purposes of this trial I will be doing my absolute best to abstain from taking these, as I feel the use of them may make the results of the CBD unclear or questionable. Alcohol - I do enjoy a beer or two on a night, I won’t be drinking any alcohol before taking my dose of daily CBD. As again, I feel this may make the results unclear. I don’t want to confuse anything or anyone. My outlook on CBD - It is my opinion that the effects of CBD depend on the individuals state of mind. This is certainly not a fact, it is just my opinion. But I wanted to write this from the start, to make it clear what my thoughts are on the matter. I believe that there is a great deal of placebo involved in the effects of CBD, the mind is a very powerful thing. I think if you think it’s working it will work, if you think it won’t work it won’t. I will be doing my best to change my mindset throughout this experiment. Disclosure - my posts relating to these products are my own opinion, they are not the opinion of POTV or other members. I have paid for the products either with my own money or by way of trade (juice swaps) to the same value. No vendor or member will have absolutely any influence on my posts and I promise to hand on heart tell the absolute truth. Whether that’s positive or negative, the results will be published. I really hope this helps some members that are new to CBD, I’m hoping at some stage to find some results. It’d be great for people to see at what stage I experienced results and at what dose, cost and method.
