When I feel intense anxiety, I go for a walk, tell myself everything will be OK, and reiterate everything that I love in my life. That helps me.

I suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, and depression all from the pain I’m in daily. I don’t think about suicide(even though I have a few times in the past) because I know my life is worth living. I have four kids and a wife who needs me and I want to see them grow up. Veteran suicide numbers are way too high so we all need to check a buddy out as often as needed.

But as with any potential "cure all", it carries quite a few misconceptions, some lies, and even some truth. I am currently in pain management for chronic back pain, and will be for a long time! That said, my Pain Physician works closely with the DEA and has an IMPECABLE and UNIMPEACHABLE program. He prescribes and endorses CBD oil use. There are some big "howevers" that go with it though. He attended a national conference on it last summer. If you are employed by the Fed Gov, or a State Gov that tests, or any company the tests for drugs, there is NOT A SINGLE manufacturer that can guarantee you will not pop positive for THC. Use it if you want, but be comfortable with the idea of playing russian roulette with your career. There are a lot of Internet "experts" who will say a lot of things like "big pharma" and "industrial medicine" are trying to suppress it because they want to keep patients sick enough to keep a cash flow generator. This is balderdash! My wife, Father, and many friends served in the medical field, and my best friend in life is a 30 year ER doctor. They love to debunk these myths. Now the internet "experts" will promise you the world. It is AMAZING all the unassociated illnesses that this product claims to fix. Pain management, sure. But, just like the snake oil salesmen of the late 19th century in America, the FIRST warning sign is how many things they claim to help. If you need to use it, and you wont be in jeopardy for doing so, give it a try, hell Imma try it when I retire. But not as a cure all. I will use it as prescribed by a COMPETANT physician...not as advertised by a charlatan! I kinda wish RP could screen out charlatans like this...

It’s not legal in Alabama yet and I don’t trust buying this product off the internet. I’m like you I want it to be prescribed by a competent doctor like my pain management doctor. He does do st cell but unfortunately insurance will not cover it and I cannot afford it.

I found one company that produces THC free CBD’s. Because my health, I no longer able to use most prescription medications due to liver/kidneys. I’m a spinal cord patient with damages to vertebrae’s, spinal cord fibers cut, scarred. Seriously damaged L-3 through L-6, plus entire neck from parachute accidents while serving.

SPC Jeff Knight - I am curious t know what company you found. According to the DEA and all of the CBD oil industry, there is no product currently available that is 100% thc free. Please do not get me wrong. I intend to try this treatment, but I WILL NEVER risk my livelihood based on some manufacturer (who all basically wants to sell their product) assuring me that it is thc free! By the way, I too have been fused from L-3 all the way down to the first Sacrum Vertebrae S-1. However, there is no L6 vertebrae in my spine and it is not recognized by the spine experts to exist. The Sacrum consists of five vertebrae that are naturally fused and begins with the L-5 to S-1 disk. If your spine expert is telling you info about your L6 vertebrae, I would recommend getting a second opinion. Also, please research ANY claim by the industry as to the purity of their CBD products, because I will repeat this one more time THERE IS NO REPUTABLE PROVIDER who will claim these products are thc free. good luck I truly wish you all the best and I hope that you get the relief and comfort that you need and so deeply deserve.

The product is ELIXINOL. I’ve seen the tech reports and scientific results of 100% no THC. Have shared with many who never tested positive and yes active MILITARY. CBD’s are natural anti-inflammatory for human and pet. Highly recommend you research.
