We all deserve relief, especially in our later years. Daily aches and tension tend to get the best of us – whether it’s lingering discomfort from past injuries, nagging pain from age-related ailments, or the wear and tear of a life well lived.

Heavy medications and over-the-counter pills may work as effective treatments. Yet still, long-term use often causes a different set of issues: adverse reactions, damage to internal organs, and addiction, while not addressing the root cause of the issue. It’s safe to say our community deserves a safer alternative for everyday relief.

A few years ago, I went through menopause and experienced a fair share of side effects from prescription drugs. After one day not being able to make it down the stairs due to discomfort, I knew it was time to search for a more sustainable approach. Thanks to my son, Jason, as he introduced me to cannabidiol (CBD).

Now, what is CBD? This natural compound comes from hemp, scientifically known as the cannabis sativa plant. Unlike THC, CBD is entirely non-intoxicating and federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. When ingested or applied topically, CBD interacts with an intrinsic network of receptors called the endocannabinoid system, allowing the mind and body to return to a balanced state, known as homeostasis.

The benefits of CBD can range from subtle and meaningful to extreme and life-changing. For me, it was the latter – unexplainable pains, debilitating headaches, and sleep problems finally subsided once I incorporated CBD into my everyday routine. Now, I’m relieved and at ease, able to move through life again. It’s been my mission ever since to educate the people of Braintree and the surrounding areas about how this natural supplement can change your life, too.
