My go-to choice for any ailment is always something natural. When I fell (really hard) on my right hand I was delighted to discover an awesome organic pain relief option in CBD oil.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture immediately after the injury had happened but it swelled up like a balloon and I couldn’t close my pinky and ring finger all the way. The picture above shows the bruising (which looks like a tan) on the back of my hand.
I iced it, elevated it and lightly massaged this new-found organic pain relief lotion I had recently picked up in Montpelier. To my surprise the swelling went down within a day and I was able to do a full day of massages two days after the injury occurred!
So what is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a type of hemp oil. It is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, which means it only has trace amounts of THC so it’s non-psychoactive. However, it does have the effective anti-inflammatory and pain relieving benefits. I have used it topically to help alleviate nerve pain, muscle aches, and arthritic joints.
You can also find CBD in supplement or tincture form to treat asthma, anxiety, sleeping disorders and more. Here are some resources if you’re interested in digging a little deeper:
