Natural CBD oil helps to cure stress, anxiety, and pain
Conni Womack residing in her Joplin home experienced a tragedy several residents of the city know all too well.
“My husband and I were in the tornado, and there was a little PTSD going on,” explained CBD oil user Connie Womack.
Surviving the tornado brought a whirlwind of new problems for womack.
“Everybody was going like Zoloft and, and all these other drugs that just made you feel weird. I didn’t want to do anything like that,” Womack said.
“People are starting to think ‘I like this medication, but with it comes this ton of side effects. What if there was a more natural approach that would be similar to the benefits that I would get from the medication, but that wouldn’t have all of these side effects?'” said Mindy Miller, a clinical social worker.
So, Womack elected to go the more natural route–she started using CBD oil.
“The cbd oil is something that is going to help calm you, help relax you, and also energize you,” said Womack.
“It’s combined with glycerin, so it tastes relatively good,” said Suzanna Nelson of Suzanne’s Natural Foods.
Suzanne Nelson owns and runs a local health food store in Joplin. She’s been selling CBD oil at her location for about a year now.
“A lot of customers use it for pain, for anxiety, and PTSD,” Nelson explained.
The natural oil is derived from the cannabis plant but it won’t give you the euphoric feeling synonymous with smoking a joint. That’s because THC–the component in marijuana that gets you high–is removed from CBD oil. A medical professional in the Four State area says he understands the drug can be beneficial.
