I have a lot of back spasms from rowing semi-professionally in our teens & early 20s.
Back then every one of us thought the exercises I was doing were good for our body, but now it seems like long term damage was inevitable.
On top of it, the coaches & authority figures in the interest are seriously misleading in how they represent the risks, prefer you see with football & head injuries. What happened was slow & gradual, but the damage to our sciatic nerve was permanent. I get numbness going down our leg into our left foot on a day to day basis, despite the fact that I don’t easily see it as much if I’m sitting in a recliner with wonderful back & leg support. I’ll admit, there are some afternoons when the pain is so extreme that I reach for our bottles of tylenol & acetaminophen to reduce the pain. A friend of mine who’s an avid cannabis user urged me to try CBD for our sciatic pain. Despite our hesitance & worry, I decided to try CBD. The lady behind the counter at the CBD store told me that I could buy pure CBD or full spectrum CBD. She said the full spectrum CBD has other cannabinoids & terpenes that add to the qualitative effects, despite the fact that I didn’t easily think what that meant. I tried the pure CBD isolate & noticed some pain relief, but it was the full spectrum CBD that worked the best for our sciatic pain. Even if they cost more cash, I would much rather take the full spectrum CBD products if I want repeatable benefits that don’t diminish from batch to batch.
