I Finally Tried CBD for My Chronic Pain and I’m Never Going Back
I am a sufferer of chronic pain and I’ve started using Lokus CBD to ease my pain. Back when I was a high school cheerleader, I got injured. A simple pyramid stunt went terribly wrong because one girl decided she should drink before the big Homecoming Game.
Note to self: don’t drink and cheer.
The result of my injury was 2 back surgeries that kept me from being paralyzed from the waist down. Y’all, I was millimeters away from a completely changed life. Most days when people ask how my back is doing, I tell them I’m just fine. Being the busy body that I am, I don’t let my back pain define me and I never will. But truthfully, some days are awful. If I sit down for too long, I look like an 80 year old woman trying to get up. If I accidentally move the wrong way during a workout, I’m out for a month trying to rehab my back.
How I Deal With Chronic Pain…
Long story short, my back pain is a part of my everyday life. Any doctor would willingly give me pain meds with a quick phone call – but that’s not my style. I already hurt my body enough from the surgeries and I refuse to hurt it anymore with synthetic prescription drugs. I even cringe at the thought of taking ibuprofen every night so I can sleep better.
That was until I found Lokus CBD. A non-psychoactive CBD brand made in the USA (woop woop) and organically sourced so there are no additives and no preservatives. Being a huge believer in natural wellness, I can vibe with Lokus. Lokus sent me their entire line of products: the 250mg CBD Oil, the 500mg CBD Oil, and the 750mg CBD Soft Gels. I’ll explain exact product in depth and give my own opinion on each product.
What Lokus CBD Does…
When non-psychoactive CBD first hit the market, I was very intrigued. I knew nothing about CBD but hearing the buzz about it curing chronic pain naturally was something I needed to explore. I’d tried CBD gummies and hated them. I would take them at night and would wake up extremely groggy the next day. As a mom and as a busy entrepreneur, I can’t have my brain in a fog until 3pm the next day. I’d rather deal with the back pain and go about my day over being groggy. So I trashed the CBD idea until I had the opportunity to try Lokus. And I’m telling you that Lokus is the real deal.
Trav, a person not living with much physical pain, asked me what it felt like taking the CBD. He was curious how it worked on my pain. My back pain is typically a 6 or a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being the worst pain). This is what I told him: taking non-psychoactive Lokus CBD is equivalent to taking a recommended dose of ibuprofen. Except since it’s all natural, I’m not damaging my liver. Taking Lokus CBD takes my back pain from a 6 or 7 to a 3 or 4.; that’s my honest opinion.
Maybe the previous CBD I had tried was bad quality and Lokus is just great quality, I’m not entirely sure, but I can take Lokus CBD at any hour and it doesn’t affect my cognitive or physical abilities at all. Taking Lokus feels like I took an ibuprofen; it takes the pain edge off. I use Lokus for my back pain but CBD is being scientifically investigated to be used for numerous health issues including plain, inflammation, depression, sleep disorders, and so much more. I decided to hop on the CBD train when my 85 year old grandma and 65 year old father found arthritic relief from a CBD infused balm. The possibilities with CBD uses are endless.
Let’s talk about each of Lokus’ products and what I think of each.
All Of Lokus’ Products…
This product is probably my favorite because of the low potency and quick acting properties. Directions say to put your preferred dose under your tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing. Did you know that when you take something sublingually it acts faster? That’s because it doesn’t have to wait to be digested in your stomach, it just goes straight into your bloodstream. When I opened the bottle, I was very surprised to see that Lokus really paid attention to detail – they added the dosage numbers to the dropper. No guessing, you know the exact amount you’re getting. I’m sensitive to CBD so I take 1/2 the suggested dose of the 250mg.
This is Lokus’ bestseller and best value product. It’s a higher milligram than the product I prefer so I like to use this one as a topical pain reliever. I just have Trav drop it on my back and rub it in. It has a nice minty fresh flavor and smell.
I really like the soft gels as well because they are in soft gel form. I take these at night so my body slowly digests the non-psychoactive CBD and keeps my pain away all night. These soft gels are also great for travel since traveling with a glass bottle full of liquid can be a little tricky. Imagine if you got to your destination and the whole bottle broke, ugh awful!
So that’s that…
I’ve hopped on the CBD train because it naturally eases my chronic back pain. I can workout hard at the gym, play with my son, sit for longer periods of time, and most importantly I can sleep through the night because my pain in manageable.
