My wife is a nurse at Mass General Hospital and has used CBD oil for years to help her with aches and pains. She thought it was odd that I wasn't using our (Jake's Mint Chew) CBD products for my ailments. Let me explain.
When I was in my twenties...many moons ago...I was a mover for five years.. Coupled with playing sports...baseball(actually, softball at my age) ...basketball..football...golf...bowling... I had issues with bulging discs, herniated disc, a hernia...well, you get the idea. When you get older you feel it with even more back pain, knee pain, neck pain, and so on.
About a year or so ago, I got an MRI done on my neck because my arm kept going numb. There was pressure on my nerves causing an inflammation issue. When I asked if surgery would help, my doctor advised against it.
I've heard first hand many amazing stories of how CBD helped people with inflammation and anxiety issues...both of which I have in spades. Whether it was at a trade show, an email, or getting a phone call, many people were swearing by it. Even my wife felt her CBD oil was helping her with her issues.
So, I said to myself, "What have I got to lose?" and started using our CBD Straight Mint pouches. I have used them pretty much everyday for the past year. I literally have a bunch in my mouth as I write this(not intentionally!). I have not had the issues with my arm ever since. I even feel calmer. I love the taste and my breath smells way better.
Some of my friends and family say, "How do you know its not psychological?" And my answer is always, "Who cares?!"
I've read enough articles on the science of CBD working for many conditions; mental and physical. However, all I know is that I was a total skeptic on CBD and now I am not. Jake's CBD pouches work for me. Who cares why? The result is what matters.
Even though I swear by Jake's Mint Chew's straight mint CBD pouches, our other flavors are great, too. So far, we've offered CBD mint pouches in Straight Mint, Cherry, Green Apple, Citrus, and Wintergreen flavors.
This is my story and I'm sticking to it. Odds are if you talk to anyone involved with baseball, trucking, football, yoga, golf, gym fanatics...well, pretty much anyone these days...you'll hear someone swear by the benefits of CBD.
