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.

Namaste.

Vaping CBD versus Swallowing Oil

I recently started to vape CBD with a “Smok” vaporizer and Aspire Cleito EXO atomizer. The results have been astounding.

Totally different effects and feelings. For the insomniacs, this will put you to sleep if you vape a little more than usual. It requires less MGs than in oil form to get the desired effect.

My blood pressure, heart rate and overall sense of well being are all either lower or better in terms of self being. You feel no anxiety at all. I’m vaping 250mg, as many droppers that can fill up my atomizer as I don’t use the atomizer for anything else. I take about 10 hits off of the vaporizer vests droplets under my tongue at 1500mg and have a quicker better reaction to it..

You can spend a lot less on oil you vape versus oil you drop. 40 dollars versus 150+ per bottles. My distributers gave me 2 bottles to test to make sure it’s good enough for my audience.

My heart rate per day has been an average of 61bpm steady since starting this. I’m back to 120/70 for my blood pressure and it’s effects on my cervical spondylosis has been intense. I have no pain at all and I have been putting stress in it with my weight lifting so I expected an increase in pain. Not since vaping CBD!

CBD is the answer and CBD will set you free from life’s barriers like introversion, anxiety and stress. Everything just rolls off of you so for sensitive people like empaths it’s perfect.

Cervical Ablation Procedure For Pain Due to Facet Syndrome, Cervical Spondylosis and Other Related Problems of the Cervical Spine.

At this point you’ve heard me talk about my own cervical ablation procedures, the pre tests and the post.  Let’s now delve into the procedure with both hands to see why this particular action plan is so beneficial to those with chronic problems of the cervical spine.

Cervical Ablation: What does it mean?

First you all know what cervical means.  Ablation, to ablate, means to remove usually by heat or cold therapies.

The Cervical Ablation is done using Radio Frequency waves which disrupt the nerve root.  By doing this, you disable the pains ability to go from the joint facet to the brain.  It literally burns the nerve root out.  The procedure has a pre test beforehand to even see if you are a candidate for it.  Some doctors will do a Medial Branch Block where some doctors will choose the Facet Block.  This also matters what your insurance counts as a pretest as well.  I know that my insurance will accept the results from either pretest but I also know that Medicare only accepts Medial Branch Blocks.

A Medial Branch Block is a short short acting procedure (24-36 hours) meant to numb the joint facet in order to see if that’s the root of the problem.  If it is, then you would be a candidate for nerve ablation therapy.

A Facet Block is a long, way longer acting pretest for the ablation procedure.  Like the Medial Branch Block, it’s performed on Fluoroscopy for accuracy but it uses a longer acting steroid mixture.  A typical Facet Block lasts 6 weeks to 3-4 months, even longer in some patients that aren’t as acute.  If there is no pain after the initial procedure pain, you are then a candidate for nerve ablation therapy.

The procedure, done under fluoroscopy, lasts a whole 10 minutes.  This coming from someone who has 3-4 at a time depending on which side is being ablated (3 on the right and 4 on the left).  For me, and many others, this procedure has a fair amount of post procedure pain because the body is stupid.  It thinks that the body was just under a trauma and has a traumatic response to it.  You become incredibly inflamed and nothing can help.  The closest thing to help is a lot of advil and to keep up with your opioid therapy or even short term increase your opiates under the care of your pain specialist.  For me, I’ve had both sides ablated.  The right side had no traumatic response but the left side blew up like an atom bomb in it’s inflammatory response.  Right now for example, I’m over 8 weeks post ablation but still on a higher dosage of opiates and taking 800mg of Advil.  So the medication is helping me get through this until it ends which should be in the next 30 days judging by how it was the last time I had the left side done.

The biggest advantage of the Ablation procedure is the time it lasts.  Both sides have lasted over 1 year their first time.  Sure there are flareups as I have more than just facet syndrome as I have osteoarthritis and nothing but medicating that helps at all.  The first time you get ablated it might last 6-12 months, the second time it could last 10-18 months and so on.  It becomes more effective each time you get it.

Summary:  The Root Ablation procedure should be used as a strategic avenue for accurate pain relief and symptom abatement.
