I Choose CBD For 5 Reasons

I do choose CBD for five reasons. First of all, whole-plant extracted CBD Oil was the first in my life to give me relief from Severe Anxiety without narcotic sedation! Valium (Diazepam) was my prescribed drug of choice for almost thirty years.

I took my last one in February 2018 and it is November 2019 and I prefer the unprescribed, legal, CBD more complete relief. CBD products made from the Cannabis Sativa Hemp Plant are not psychoactive.

To explain, I don’t like sedation from drugs for I have to take psychiatric medications. Having Bipolar and choosing to be a medicated bipolar I must take in my case several medications. While these aren’t sedating in the same way as a narcotic they can be distracting.


Secondly, the focus for me is on pain and today I choose CBD and Lyrica, but no narcotic, no opioid. From a ruptured disc in 1977, (just think that is 2018-1977=41 years) I was first prescribed Vicodin. Then, another ruptured disc in 1984, and the same thing called Lortab!

Opioid Prescription Trail

I was on the opioid prescription trail! Until 2016, Oxycodone, then July 2018, when I stopped the opioids, and I chose CBD for milder withdrawals! I must say, the opioid prescription trail was a long one for me!

In 1990, my physician prescribed Hydrocodone 7.5 for lumbar disc disease, migraine, TMJ Dysfunction pain, and intense, general, undiagnosed body pain!

Through the years I was treated for bursitis and had fluid drawn from both knees, and in general, treated for inflammation in both shoulders and other joints. I took the Hydrocodone 7.5 and still ached unmercilessly through I took many Cortizone shots.

Fibromyalgia and Symptoms

Thirdly, my physician of twelve years diagnosed my symptoms of inflammation, severe body aches, and gastric problems, and more and he said, “I read your twelve-year history, and in my opinion, you are coping with Fibromyalgia.

So intense, undiagnosed, body pain, and gastric problems, after twelve years became Fibromyalgia with all its connotations of inflammation! In 2002 Fibromyalgia was being diagnosed but there were no specific remedies, except ‘treat the symptoms’.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia:

  • Generalized body pain-it can come in different ways, but the pain is the definitive symptom of this musculoskeletal disorder, which affects 5.8 million people in the United States.
  • Gastric Problems
  • Mood disturbances, Anxiety
  • Fibro Fog-Dazedness, Memory loss and forgetfulness
  • Insomnia, inability to get restorative sleep
  • RLS Restless Leg Syndrome, more than 1/3 of Fibromyalgia patients have this
  • Tingling, burning, stiffness, numbness throughout the body. Any may be made worse by lack of rest. These neurological symptoms are similar to those of Myasthenia Gravis and Multiple Sclerosis.
  • There are Several more Symptoms! Varied by count and degree per patient.

Attention: In Aug 2017, researchers discovered Fibromyalgia amplified pain signals in the patient’s body as a matter of course of the disease. It does this by affecting the way the patient’s brain processes pain signals.

Fourth, during 2008, I was examined and tested by three doctors, an ophthalmologist and two neurologists, then told I had Myasthenia Gravis. This is due to the onset of double-vision.

CBD and Inflammation

Fifth, I have a chronic pain diagnosis due to scar tissue causing inflammation from a ruptured-disc in my cervical spine. Due to the Myasthenia Gravis, I’m not supposed to be sedated deep enough to have surgery, so they can’t repair my neck.

Not only do I choose CBD, but I also decided to be a Sales Representative for CBDBioCare!

I choose CBD for these five reasons and more, but I am going to stop here and give you a:

  1. I attended a “young living” seminar a few weeks back and it so happened that this oil was also presented. It came to my attention that it contributes to every part of the body. I would love to try this out for my eyesight. Tonight is a new year-2020, and I have lots of faith that this year, God has great surprises that the world will discover through this natural source he provides. 

    1. Thank you, Linda, for a beautiful comment! And you’re correct, our endocannabinoid system responds to the CBD. Until recently we did not know how the endocannabinoid system worked, only healers for thousands of years in Eastern and Western Medicine knew that it did. Linda, we will keep hoping for our eyes until the healing. God Bless and Good Luck! Janice 🤗🌾

  2. I have not consulted a physician yet with regard to my problem which is a pain in the muscles and bones right above the anus. Through Google search, I learned that this can be a symptom of what they call “dead butt syndrome”, a condition arising from prolonged sitting experienced by online workers. I heard from a colleague that CBD oil is good for treating pain and inflammation so I checked Google again and found this article. It seems you have substantial experience in using CBD oil so I’d like to ask you when compared with common analgesics found in drugstores, in terms of effect (being a pain reliever), which drug can you compare CBD oil? Mefenamic Acid? Paracetamol? Tramadol?

    1. Gomer, Thank you for commenting, and I agree, you have a concerning problem. First of all, CBD does not compare with any drug for it is not a drug. You are using some strong analgesics. Yes, I use the CBD Pain Rub on my neck and it surely helps. I’m not trying to make my neck numb but to lessen inflammation. You’re using strong analgesics which will only make you numb. One of them, Tramadol, is an opioid. I hope you can talk to your chosen Healthcare Provider. God Bless and Good Luck! Janice 🤗🌾

  3. Hello, I really want to first appreciate your effort in putting this great website together and writing this article. i wonder if really CBD products made from the Cannabis Sativa Hemp Plant are not psychoactive. It seemed to have an effect on my sister. i would like to know if it is possible

    1. Benny, it’s true! Full-spectrum CBD from the Cannabis Sativa Hemp Plant is not psychoactive! Full-spectrum CBD has .03% THC and 97% CBD and only the THC is psychoactive. If 3% bothers you, although Full-spectrum is the one easily available, you can spend a little more money and effort and find some of the CBD that has had all the THC refined out. Thank you for appreciating my site! God Bless and Good Luck! Janice 🤗🌾

  4. Hi! This musculoskeletal disorder has affected some close family members and recently I have learnt that some family members of my friends are also affected. But I’m really surprised that there are 5.8 million people in the United States affected. Among CBD’s benefits I had always heard it was good for treating Fibromyalgia. Thanks for the reminder.

    1. Greetings Abel, and yes, many, many more people are affected with these Immune Disorders than most realize! CBD is helpful in numerous ways and especially for the inflammation of Fibromyalgia! You’re welcome! God Bless and Good Luck! Janice ??

  5. Thanks a lot for such an amazing review about CBD oil and explanation are given.

    I have heard many times about the benefits of CBD oil, so I decided to read about it online. I have read many articles but this is the best, very well explained. I would try CBD oil but I’m not sure if my country is legal.

    Thanks again and keep in touch!

  6. This is very interesting. I knew that you can get physical pain relief with Cbd but I had not heard of it for mental wellbeing. I have also been diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder but I have chosen non-medication apart from the occasional sleeping pill. Do you believe that taking the bi-polar is physiological and has balanced out the bi-polar or does it address the symptoms? Are you addressing life circumstances and other potential causes of your bi-polar? I know that to do the later sometimes it is necessary to do something like take cbd oil just so that you have the capacity to address issues.

    1. Greetings Deb! Thank you for so many questions! CBD is one of the very best helps for anxiety, and many are achieving results with depression, so CBD is definitely a mental help!
      Where Bi-polar is concerned, I lived thirty-nine years with only supplements and a hit or miss ‘nerve’ pill! Then for the following thirty years of my life, I have maintained Bi-polar medications and a psychiatrist. As life issues and events necessitate I have also had therapy with a psychologist. Deb, I think your comments insightful and I appreciate them! God Bless and Good Luck! Janice ???

  7. Hey, I enjoy while reading your article and know 5 reasons to choose CBD Oil. Now I know that CBD products made from the Cannabis Sativa Hemp Plant are not psychoactive.
