My husband is in the hospital with numerous issues, mostly pain from surgery and diabetic complications. He suddenly had acute knee pain, and we tried the 750mg pain cream with menthol. He was insistent that we now keep it on hand always!

I suffer from panic attacks, anxiety almost causes me to stop functioning at times. When I was told about CBD, I was skeptical. Will it work for me? Well yes, it did! I was very surprised at the calming effect it has. I prefer the edibles, but sometime use a drink mix or soda--instead of a prescription!

We have dogs with separation anxiety and a really old cat with some failing health pains. We used the drops that are for pets, and within minutes the super-anxious dog settled down. As for the cat, he went from caterwauling in the middle of the night, to meowing for extra food in the normal morning hours.Obviously we cannot tell how much relief there is, but the behavior is much more normal and seems to be helping with quality of life. One drop a day has worked for our buddies.

Does CBD make you high?
CBD is an entirely different compound from THC, and its effects are very complex. It is not psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a "high" or change a person's state of mind, but it influences the body to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively.

The best way to determine what method works for your body is to try out different products. If you have specific location pain, then creams, freezes or ointments may be ideal for quick absorption into the skin.
