Cannabis oil bought online 'cures' woman's sciatica 'within hours'
The debate to legalise marijuana has been raging for decades now. America, in particular, remains a divided nation on the matter, with the state of Arizona legalising THC for medical usage back in 2010. Other states, however, have a more conservative stance on the substance and have categorically refused to entertain the possibility.
Nevertheless, some of the benefits of marijuana cannot be contested. Advocates for the legalisation of weed wax lyrical about how it is a healthier alternative to alcohol and how it can aid those who live in pain or suffer from mental health illnesses. In fact, one woman from Kirkwall, Orkney even claimed that using cannabis oil "cured" her from crippling sciatica.
Brenda Davidson spent 13 years suffering from sciatica so painful that it regularly reduced her to tears. But now, she has found a cure. Since using cannabis oil, the 55-year-old claims to be virtually pain free. Certainly, just a day after trialling the oil, Brenda exclaimed "I can’t believe this, I am not in any pain!"
The former cafeteria assistant was informed about the oil's healing properties from her hairdresser. She said: "My hairdresser has done a lot of research into the cannabis oil, and said her mother had seen tremendous results. She was putting three drops under her mother’s tongue and she reacted very positively to it. She told me that everyone will be different; it will depend on the individual."
Brenda had been using prescription tablets to treat her condition, but she plans to stop taking them once she's wholly confident that the cannabis oil will continue to deliver the same amazing results.
It took Brenda two weeks before she decided to take the plunge and purchase the cannabis oil. However, it was a process of trial and error. Initially opting for a cheaper product which she didn't find effective, Brenda eventually stumbled on the CBD Brothers's cannabis oil which proved to be life-changing.
"It costs £54 for a 10ml bottle, but it lasts me six to eight weeks. I remember it was a Saturday that it first arrived home, so I tried it, then again on the Sunday, but it wasn’t until the Monday, at work, that I [realised] I am not in any pain!"
Brenda has suffered from sciatica for a number of years now. As a former cafeteria assistant, she was expected to be on her feet for long periods every day. And this eventually resulted in her being unable to walk long distances at all. She explained:
"It got to the point that I could no longer walk the dog. I would be in so much pain and just come home crying my eyes out. I have been on different painkillers over the years and they put me through physio but it did not really help."
Brenda's had little trouble since taking the cannabis drops. "If it does start to niggle a bit by tea-time I just take another drop and it’s fine again – I really did not think it would work, but it has," she continued. "The NHS should definitely look into providing it on prescription – surely it would work out cheaper for them than giving out all these prescriptions for painkillers. Altogether, it is the best £54 I have ever spent!"
Although medical marijuana is illegal in the UK, the cannabis oil that Brenda is using is permitted as it doesn't technically contain any THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana. Since last year, it has been legal to purchase in the UK, since the Government's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHPR) approved it to be used as a medicine under licence.
CBD Brothers state that the oil has no side effects and that it isn't addictive.
