Fire Wholesale 15 Gummy Pack 450mg Total MG.

I usually prefer not to review edibles because you can’t trust the label except from a small amount of brands but I chose this brand because it’s been magical.  My wholesaler gave me advice to try this brand based on the public feedback from some of his retail customers.

Normally, as you may have seen, I buy and review high high milligram CBD products but in this case, 30mg per gummy of high quality CBD oil (not isolate) had me sleeping amazingly for 2 weeks now.

Not only am I sleeping my goal of 7 hours but I’m dreaming such vivid lucid-like dreams.  Yes, I still take valerian root every night but half as much as I used to.  I tried 2 gummies the first night and woke up over 8 hours later without a single wakeup during the middle of the night.  So the next night I took 1 30mg gummy and slept my goal to the minute almost.  I very subtly fell asleep but when I woke up I realized that I was in the same position as when I fell asleep.  No tossing and turning trying to get to sleep, just pure sleep.

I tried one during the day this week after I fell on the ice because it works so well on my neck that during the day it didn’t knock me out. I was able to work through the pain as the pain was diminished by the gummy.

My cost on this item was 14 dollars USD so you can expect to pay anywhere from 15 to 30 dollars for a pack of 15 gummies.  If taken once a night you will only need to buy two packages a month to get great sleep plus all the other benefits CBD offers you.

Great brand for full spectrum high dose CBD gummies. 450mg in 14 gummies at my cost which was 8 bucks from my wholesaler. After a week I can say they work faster and better than tinctures but slower than vaping high dose full spectrum CBD. The normal price of this product is probably between 15 and 30 dollars. For most people, half of a gummie is sufficient at night. For my insomnia, I take 1 tincture. 2 gummies, constant vaping until I pass out asleep, 8 valerian capsules and 3 magnesium pills. I think that's enough to knock a 300lber asleep for 2 days. I'm lucky to get 6 hours. .. .. #cbd#cbdoil#vapecbd#fullspectrumcbd#cbdgummies#smokecbd#cbdflower#valerian#magnesium#canazil#fullspectrumelitecbd#cbdblogger#nothc#justcbd

The New Year To Come

Well this year has been topsy turvey. I’ve had so many bad days compared to good days that it makes me think the course of treatment I’m on is not ideal. Just treating the pain with narcotics is only a temporary stop gap towards what I’m heading to in the future.

While the procedures I get do offer long term relief from the extreme pain I used to suffer from, my flare periods have increased. This last year we tried epidurals for the first time to no avail and the right side ablation has worn off after working for about a year and 4 months. That’s not bad for a single procedure. My pain management center has now limited you to 6 steroid injection sessions per year due to how steroids eats away at the vertebrae but that doesn’t include the deep steroid procedures such as fact blocks which last for about 4-6 months.

The beginning of this new year I’m going for a consultation on an implantable spinal stimulator which uses electrical impulses to interfere with that areas ability to send pain signals to the brain. It works all over the back but they have started to use it on the cervical spine in the last few years successfully for people with cervical spondylosis and degenerative disc disease. It’s a small implantable unit they bury into your shoulder and then run lead wired into the nerve root locations at each location of the cervical spine. The first procedure is a temporary unit which you have access to so you can tune the strength, width and frequency to what works for you the best. Once you find that butter zone, they use those settings on the permanent device but those settings can be changed easily as well. So I look forward to that and finally be rid of the fentanyl patch.

Last Friday, to break a 2 month flare, I had 12 steroid injections as part of an occipital nerve block to relax the top of the cervical spine so the rest of it can begin to relax and started an anti spasmodic medication while tapering off of the gabapentin since that drug does nothing for me.

The inflammation of the neck is putting undo pressure on my vagus nerve slowing down my heart rate. At night it drops as low as 41bpm at it’s absolute lowest so I was given Wellbutrin to stimulate my system and medically increase my heart rate. I ended the year in and out of my cardiologist’s office for an echo an EKG and a 2 week halter monitor which confirmed the bradycardia but showed no cardiac problems.

I have to go in for another sleep study as the neck may have created an apnea-like symptom when I sleep which also explains the slow heart rate at night. Mind you the slow rate is only when I sleep so in essence I end up taking a stimulating drug right before I get ready for sleep. Real smart for someone like me who already has a sleep disorder. I’m not worried at all about any of this, I’m just waiting for my chiropractor to return from his vacation so I can get some alignment back in the middle to lower neck and squash this long flare.

Besides all that, I’ve switched partnerships from one CBD company to another. We are no longer partnered with green roads world as their product is stepped on and have carefully chosen The CBDDISTILLERY who is the grower and seller whose lab reports are so pure and contain more terpenes and cannabinoids compared to so many other names in the market. I started using their product a few months ago before starting to sell them to make sure it was worth it and trust me, it’s worth it. I will be changing all the CBD ads on the site to them tomorrow and wipe my hands of green roads.

In other news, I got a Microsoft surface book 2 with a 15″ screen and the highest model you could get as a present and Photoshop CC loads in 5 seconds which is remarkable. I can’t wait to start editing on it in my lap like I used to do with my surface pro 4.

Onyx is doing great and her Spidey senses the last 2 months have been spot on as she’s been sleeping by my head every night during this long flare. Her purring is like a massage pillow it’s so powerful.

My New year’s resolutions are to be more accepting of ignorant people as in ignoring them rather then arguing logic into their heads. I promise to get out more and with a new girlfriend that hasn’t been an issue for a while now. Judge less and accept more.

I wish everyone a happy New year and hope it brings positivity and strength to you all. Don’t harp on the negative instead look to the next day as being better than the previous.

What Is Chronic Pain Like, Pt 2 – Emotional and Mental Pain

Chronic pain as stated before is debilitating – as stated before.  It stops and halts your way of life; your personal life, your work life, your life.  There is more to pain than just the pain you feel; there is emotional and mental pain.

The emotional pain I speak of is a feeling of giving up.  Throwing up the papers and saying f*** it all.  A feeling of nothing you do or take will ever work or get you better.  It’s a feeling that everyone around you is having normal lives while you congregate around your comfy pillows in bed just so you can be comfortable.  It’s a feeling that you are treading water.  A feeling that all those you know are having the times of their lives while you can’t follow.  It’s wanting to have a drink with friends but knowing that you can’t have a drink of alcohol because of the narcotics you are on.

A feeling of vast emptiness overwhelms you.  Soon you feel as if there is no end in sight.  You feel that there is nothing that can be done and only that it’s going to keep getting worse.  Emotionally you are drained.  Mentally you are disturbed at the notion that there is no one procedure that can be done that can get rid of your pain altogether all at once.

Mental pain and anguish ensues.  Soon you can’t sleep not just because of the painsomnia but because your mind is racing with thoughts like “what will tomorrow be like” or “is this going to keep getting worse?”  Your days go so slow as everything you do is to prevent flaring your pain or increasing it in any way.  Your mental health takes a dive in terms of positivity turning to negativity.  All you are is negative.  You haven’t had a positive thought in a while and thinking about your medical condition only makes you feel negativity; specific or non specific.  Negativity is never good for anyone for any elongated time period as it soon becomes all you exude; negativity.  Positivity and positive thoughts are now gone as this elongated negativity takes over.

Soon mental pain and emotional pain become intertwined together into one giant rubber band ball.  You can’t distinguish which is which whether it’s an emotional thought or a mental thought, whether the pain is emotional or mental.  So what do we do? We do what works for us; we dive into our beds, pull our fleece throws over us and hide in comfort.  Our new home.  Our place where the outside can’t hurt us.

Chronic pain turns us into involuntary introverts.  We want go to out, we want to be with friends but soon your friends get the idea and stop inviting you out because they know that all you are going to say is no.  So they stop inviting you because no before means no now.  Well that isn’t always true and on our good days all we want is an invitation.  Something to get us out of our comfort place, something to get us mingled with others to forget about our pain even though we are in pain.

I’d rather be an involuntary extrovert than an involuntary introvert which means all you have to do is extend an invitation to me when there are things going on.  If you are truly my friend, invite me and prove you are.  Don’t add to my problems by not inviting me out because I said no once.

Before I had such horrific chronic pain I was the center of my social network.  Everyone called me to set things up, to plan the night out, to plan the weekend, to plan the winter vacation.  Boy has that changed.  Now I’m lucky if I get calls from my best of friends over the weekend or for happy hours. Again, people learn quickly and they learn by single events versus multiple events (saying no multiple times).

It’s a double sided knife.  I want to go out but I will probably say no to your invitation but the next time you invite me I might say yes.  But you will never know because you don’t send me that second invitation.

Emotionally you make me feel worthless.  Mentally you make me feel like one of those unwanted members of society.  Before you act, think about yourself.  Think about how you would like to be treated if you were in someone’s boat who had chronic illnesses and see how they would feel.

Think about others and don’t be so damned busy thinking about yourself.
