Bending Weird

So, my back has been hurting recently.  I was going to a masseuse but it doesn’t seem to be doing the trick.  Well, let me rephrase; it doesn’t seem to be doing the trick as quickly as I would like.  Then, the other day I was online trying to find things that might work and of course there was a lot of stuff that I feel like realistically won’t do anything.  The few friends I have talked to were like, I dunno, I take aspirin.

Thanks.  No help.

When you read some of the research, it might suggest that CBD oil can help with pain.  I haven’t actually tried it before but I do live in a weed legal state so I’m pretty sure I can just go to the nearest dispensary and pick some eventually.  The problem is, I don’t know anything about it.  I know there is THC and CBD, and I know people like THC because it gets you high.  But I don’t want to get high.  Then, that might not be true, but I don’t want to get high all the time when I’m trying to make my back issues go away.  Here, there is CBD, which doesn’t have any spacey effects but could in fact be used for pain relief if you believe the research.

But I’m not sure I do.

I might give it a try.  There are like liquids and oils and pills and stuff.  I don’t even know if there are variations between them.  Like, a drink might be ok but I feel like if you are just using it like that it’s probably going to require you to drink a lot to get a good quantity.  There are pills, those are fine I guess.  And then I’ve seen a liquid oil that you just need a little bit of to use.  That’s probably the best option, honestly.

When I was making this post I was going to go into all the technical stuff about how it all works but I elected against it.  People probably don’t care and there are other sites that explain it way better than I can.  Perhaps a more effective use would be for me to talk about how I hurt my back.

I was bending forward the other day for longer than I should have been and when I raised myself it hurt.  I shouldn’t have done it and I knew it was bad but I wasn’t paying attention to it at the time and then I was just like darn, I errored.  The problem is, it’s just a muscle strain, but it’s taking a long time to go away.  Seriously.  Like generally when you hurt yourself it goes away, right?  Possibly I should tell my back that it’s supposed to feel better.  However, it will be feeling alright and then I’ll like bend a certain way and suddenly the pain comes back.

Oh, so I do want to say, CBD is supposed to be antiinflammatory.  That’s supposed to help with a lot of issues in your body.  So there is a chance I might notice other things besides just a reduction in back pain.  Who knows.  I’m actually wondering whether or not this is going to become more popular when pot becomes legal in other states.  The thing is, everyone seems to think that it’s a drug that harms people but I feel like people are going to learn how it actually works.  But now I sound like one of those people who endlessly talk about weed, so I’m going to stop.  I don’t think I know anyone who’s tried it, actually.
