So what is CBD? Unlike THC, CBD is inert and does not produce any psychoactive effects. With CBD you are able to reap the benefits of cannabis without the actual high. Leaf Science does a great job in explaining what CBD is and how it has an effect on our endocannabinoid system here.
During his initial course of chemotherapy, he started to suffer from bilateral lower extremity neuropathy. He would have intermittent episodes of pain in his legs that unfortunately later resulted in foot drop. Because of his Vincristine chemotherapy drug he started to have difficulty in lifting the top part of his foot, in addition to having the muscles in this legs tighten up.
In researching alternatives to pharmaceuticals for providing him with pain relief from neuropathy, rather than loading him up with more medications that ultimately just have more side effects and put more strain on the body, we started looking into CBD oil and CBD products. While looking for CBD products it is important to look for full spectrum, hemp derived CBD. You want to make sure the CBD is pure, not synthetic or mixed with any other chemicals that would defy its benefit for use.
I came across Life Elements products and it was love at first try! Their CBD & Honey Ache + Pain Relief stick has been such a blessing to Anthony with his neuropathy. We have used it to rub all along the bottom of his feet and legs which also makes for a great massage. His dad and I then started using it on ourselves for our own back pain issues and it is officially a staple in our households. I love that you can apply it directly from the stick without having to use an applicator or dipping fingers in a cream, which makes it great for on-the-go. You’ll feel a slight warming and cooling sensation upon application to help relieve pain, while treating your skin to the benefits of a blend of beeswax, honey, propolis, royal jelly and pollen.
Not only do Life Element’s products work so well but the founders, Martha and Curt, are truly amazing. They have followed my son’s journey and have been an exceptional resource to have. Their level of customer service has far exceeded our expectation and they have gone above and beyond to connect on a personal level. We are so grateful they have been a part of my son’s healing process and helped him thrive through cancer.
We have never given Anthony any pain medication during the course of his cancer treatment. We have been blessed that he has achieved full pain relief and relaxation through the CBD products we have used, including Life Element’s CBD bliss ball bath bombs, warm magnesium salt baths, massage and essential oils.
I love that their CBD bliss bath bombs contain no toxic or harsh chemicals, preservatives, aluminum, color dyes, foaming agents or synthetic fragrances. They are naturally scented with flower extracts and essential oils.
The Everyday Skin Repair stick has also been amazing on Anthony’s skin when it is irritated or dry. A single application of this and his skin has been fully repaired by the next day. Goes on so smooth and is very nourishing to the skin.
Life Elements has a wide array of CBD products including tinctures, salves, body scrubs, lip balms and bath bombs! We have tried them all and they are truly great!
