    Great story! :) Thanks.

    Have you tried topicals?  You can rub that goodness right into your skin.  Smoking never helped me with my arthritis... at all.

    But recently - at the age of 45"ish" I find that there is something other than smoking or eating.... BALMS, LOTIONS and SALVES, oh my.

    There is a laundry list of things it can help, ease or treat.  One surprise was that the same lotion I use for the arthritis in my chest, shoulder and neck can also help with hemmorhoids.  Plus  it just makes my skin so soft.  

    I can almost do a handstand!!!!!  That's from a lady who needed help taking her shirt off at the end of the day!!!!  

    Plus I'm sleeping better since I'm no longer in pain.  And the fucking NSAID that has literally been slowly killing me (surgeries, colonoscopies and biopsies, oh my - are no longer in my body.  BTW, 10 thousand people will die this year from taking their various NSAIDS correctly. Lovely, huh?

    CBDs are my new best buds.  Uh... no pun intended. :)

    Now if I can just get all the damned paperwork for Oregon's OMMP - which seems to be a costly game of BS.  (I have paperwork from the past 4 years stating of my diagnosis but  it's not good enough as it's not from the last 12 months....)  And the red tape crap and "pay offs"  has to be done each year.
