The silver lining in David’s story was CBD’s ability to provide natural relief without an adverse side effect.

Well, I have never heard of a side effect from CBD.”

Zumbrun quotes, “I was a little concerned about the marijuana side of things, too, at first, since I don’t like to get high. But then I learned this doesn’t get you ‘high’ or feeling weird. I just started off with small doses and immediately noticed that I felt less sore, less anxious, and could sleep better since I wasn’t in pain.”
