I was a linebacker for our private school football team & took a lot of hits.
Both of us spent more time in the weightroom & on the field than I did hanging out with friends & living a normal teenage life.
They don’t tell you then that you’re likely causing permanent disfigure to your body that you can never reverse. It’s hearttearing when I study about the cases of football players with CTE after so many hits to the head while playing the game. I’m blessed that I haven’t shown any symptoms of neurological disfigure, but I feel there is still time for that in the future. For me, it’s the joint & muscle pain that is constant. Everyday I have to get used to experiencing some degree of physical discomfort. It could be a muscle strain in our neck, a stinging pain in our back, or a nerve numbness in our leg. Regardless of the source, the pain from years of playing football is real. The only real savior in our life has been cannabis & CBD oil in particular. I work a task that drug tests myself and others & it’s hard for myself and others to attempt to use fake urine to cheat the test. That’s why I primarily use CBD oil to treat all of our muscle & joint pain. The CBD oil I buy can be consumed orally or applied directly to the skin as a transdermal product. I love to use strong doses of CBD weekly so that I have a constant storehouse of it in our body. I’m a happier guy in the long run when I’m always using CBD to treat our multiple medical ailments.
