When I was a Freshman in High School I herniated 3 discs in my low back, L3/L4, L4/L5 and L5/S1. I tried physical therapy and pain management injections and it helped but not totally. Throughout High School and College I kept going back and forth with PT, injections and exercising. I wasn’t in unmanageable pain but I was in pain every day.

As time went on the discs continued to degenerate and the pain got progressively worse. I started to take Opiate pain medications along with more invasive pain management injections. But, the pain continued to get worse to the point that I couldn’t function. I wasn’t able to live my life the way it was.

I was subjected to all types of tests including a Discogram which is one of the most painful things I’ve ever been through. In 2003 I had my first Laminectomy on L5/S1 because that level presented the most pain. 2005 I had to have another Laminectomy on L4/L5. I did get some relief from both surgeries but was still on high doses of Opiates. It was how I was able to function at some level in my life. I was on high doses due the amount of pain I was in. I now had Facet pain, SI pain, scar tissue and Arthritis. I was in a terrible car accident in 2006 in which I re-herniated both discs and crushed 2 nerves. I had to have another double Laminectomy and double Decompression.

I still had to continue with pain management, taking more Opiates and having more invasive injections/ procedures. I am now 42 and I don’t know what it’s like to live without pain.

Golf Rx gave me a sample of their CBD cream to try, suggesting that it may help. I use it on my low back and my right leg where I have permanent nerve damage. I am amazed and beyond happy at the relief I get after using the topical cream. I keep it with me at all times so when I need it, I have it. I don’t want to ever be without it. Not only is it all natural, it’s easy to use and has nothing in it that can harm or react with my current medications.

Thank you so much for developing this CBD cream and letting me try it.
