Both of our parents are affected by health problems that supply them chronic physical pain.
For our father it’s kidney disease, as well as for our mother it’s crohn’s disease combined with a fractured spine.
Despite having similar pain levels in general, the difference in pain sources results in odd kinds of effective pain treatment for each condition. For instance, ibuprofen is effective for our dad when he’s dealing with a discouraging kidney stone, but the same medicine often makes our mother’s nausea worse if she’s in the throes of Crohn’s flare. That’s why she will take acetaminophen instead as well as it seems to work just as well for her as the former does for our father. However, now they’re both using cannabis again after years of sobriety while I was in our childhood as well as early 20s. Cannabis as well as its constitutive components affect the endocannabinoid plan that deals with the perception of physical pain among other things. However, no multiple people have the exact same endocannabinoid plan so all of us all react to several strains of cannabis differently. For instance, our father does entirely well taking just CBD by itself for physical pain while our mother still needs her THC. My dad gets all of her CBD products from a local store that has a business in Oregon. It’s all yellowhouse grown hemp that is used to create our dad’s CBD products. Since CBD isn’t intoxicating, she says that it allows him to get more done everyday than she would otherwise. I started taking CBD for depression as well as I’m already glad with the initial results. My mood has lifted now that I’m taking CBD twice daily with our meals.
