The Fay Farm Healing CBD Hemp Lotion
A little over three years ago I made the decision to ditch pharmaceutical methods for treating my chronic conditions and began treating them naturally. The first step was to wean my body off of the prescription medications and detox. Once my body was free from those toxins I began medicating with Medical Marijuana. Within weeks I experienced significant improvement from my Psoriatic Arthritis and Fibromyalgia symptoms. At that point I was only medicating with edibles or by smoking a joint. Later I discovered topical Medical Marijuana products which helped greatly reduce muscle and nerve pain. Unfortunately, those topical MMJ products all have a strong marijuana scent. While I like the smell of marijuana, I didn’t like smelling like I had just smoked a joint while out in public. Thanks to The Fay Farm and their Healing CBD Hemp Lotion, I experience relief without smelling like I have been hanging out with Tommy Chong.
Before I share the type of relief this lotion provides my body with, I want to tell you a little about this company and their products. The Fay Farm is dedicated to creating quality natural body care products and crafts their products with all natural, organically-sourced materials! Along with the Healing CBD Hemp Lotion they also have an extensive line of natural shea body butters and their highly acclaimed Healing Hemp Salve, which is an excellent natural treatment for Psoriasis, Eczema, Ichthyosis, Contact Dermatitis, itching skin, burn care and bug bites. Warming Muscle Rub has been used for the relief of sore muscles, rheumatoid arthritis, cluster headaches, migraines, and as a pre- and post-workout balm. None of their products contain parabens, alcohol, mineral oil, or phthalates. They also list all of the ingredients for each product on their website, which is awesome for people like me that have many allergies and sensitivities not just to medications but to natural ingredients as well.
The product that I was given to try is the Healing CBD Hemp Lotion. This product is made with organic ingredients: Purified water, hemp oil, grape seed oil, apricot kernel oil, emulsifying wax, stearic acid, argan oil, 200 mg. CBD oil, burdock, calendula, chamomile, chickweed, comfrey, licorice, nettle, plantain, St. john’s wort, essential oils, gluconolactone and sodium benzoate (certified organic preservative). The purpose of this product is to provide relief for neuropathy, and other nerve pain. It is also effective relief for eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, and other auto-immune skin disorders, and soothes burns, bug bites, athlete’s foot, ringworm, and dry, damaged skin.
I am one of the lucky people who don’t suffer from many skin outbreaks from my Psoriatic Arthritis. With that said, because I didn’t have any outbreaks during this time of testing I can’t comment on how it helps in regards to that. However, I do experience extreme muscle, joint, and nerve pain on a daily basis. Another issue I have is with the side of my left hand and the sides of my feet. The muscles in those areas react terribly to bone pain by seizing up. They become stiff and the pain is so bad that it feels like I broke my hand or foot. I lose use of my hand and feet when this occurs. The muscles around my sacrum do the same thing.
Wondering how it worked? This product is amazing!!!! And just so you know, I am not saying this because I received this product for free. I truly love and believe in this product. I will begin with my sacrum. I began by rubbing the lotion in that area every morning and evening. The intensity of my pain decreased greatly within 5 minutes of application! But a reduction in pain wasn’t the only perk, my muscles also began relaxing. After a few days I began to notice some popping of joints in my lower back. The last time I experienced so much popping was during my last full body massage. This was happening because my muscles were finally relaxing enough to let go of my spine. Because of this I have also experienced a reduction in nerve pain that normally stems from my back.
I awoke one morning with the side of my left hand so angry that it caused me to lose use of my pinky and ring finger. This happens more often in the summer months as extreme heat exasperates my condition, so I was thrilled to be able to test this during our first blistering heatwave. I rubbed some lotion into my hand and the results blew me away. Like my sacrum, I experienced a reduction in pain within minutes. I also regained function of my hand, pinky, and ring fingers in that time! Within minutes I went from not being able to pick up or hold my phone and not being able to type to being able to do whatever I wanted with that hand. But the best part was how long the relief lasted. My hand was pain-free for the entire day! I didn’t have to reapply the lotion until the next morning. After applying it to my hand every morning for an entire week, I found myself not needing to use the lotion every day. A few weeks later and I only need to apply it to my hand two or three times a week. My experience with my feet has been the same as what I experienced with my hand. In addition to that I have had a nerve pinched in my left ankle for the past two months. No matter what I tried, I could never get my muscles to release it. After a week of using this lotion, my muscles finally set that nerve free!!!
So how does it work with nerve pain? I have permanent nerve damage in my upper left thigh because a surgeon accidently sliced a set of nerves between my pelvis and left thigh. The pain is constant and maddening. In the past I have used a THC oil to help keep from losing my mind. Most of the time that product would reduce the pain some, but sometimes it would make my leg tingle which at times was just as annoying as the straight up nerve pain. Prepared to experience the same results I rubbed the Healing CBD Hemp Lotion into the area. To my delight, there was no tingling, just relief!!!
While I already knew the benefits of medicating with marijuana, I had never tried a CBD only product. This product is not a “band aid’, it provides more than superficial temporary relief, it provides healing!! I truly believe that with prolonged use, I will experience more improvements. The wonderful thing about a CBD product versus a THC product is that the CBD one does not contain the psychoactive cannabinoids that the THC does. What does that mean for you? It means that it doesn’t matter if you live in a state or area that hasn’t legalized marijuana for medicinal use for you to be able to purchase and use it. Anyone and everyone can benefit from this fabulous product!
I highly recommend this product to anyone who suffers from muscle, joint, or nerve pain. I plan purchasing more bottles of this spectacular lotion and the salve form for when I am on the go!
Wishing you a day filled with gentle hugs and many reasons to smile!
