Singing the praises of CBD

I agree with the Oct. 4 letter “CBD improves quality of life.”

I used to take six ibuprofen tablets a day for back pain. I don’t anymore, thanks to cannabidiol, a legal non-THC hemp product.

I average three 100 mg capsules a day, and I’m pain free. It’s like a miracle drug, only it’s not a drug.

It’s OK to take up to 1,300 mg a day, but I can’t imagine anyone needing anywhere near that much. When pain starts, one capsule works in about 20 minutes. It’s easy to buy — just do an online search for CBD — and it comes in oil form as well.

I’m sure Big Pharma hates this. I really want to spread the word to help many people and save them a lot of money.
