30+ years of lower back pain

I've seen chiropractors for 30 years, I purchased a TENS stimulation unit, I do stretching and nothing relieves the pain for more than an hour or two. Last week my son visited us and suggested I try CBD. I don't know much about it except that it's like marijuana without the ingredients that make you high.

Here is what happened  - I purchased PUF Recovery for a local store (yes, it is totally legal) and within 30 minutes my back pain was gone.

I do not understand it, but if you have back pain you should check this out

    You can buy CBD online and I have tried it, sadly without effect.
    There seem to be various varieties - which one worked for you?  Was it a paste you massaged in, or drops under your tongue foe example?  I have had the pain ever since my first child was born over 50 years ago, and my doctor seems to think I'm making a fuss about nothing and won't even refer me for an MRI - the last investigation I had was over 10 years ago and all I was offered was an xray.
    I take 8 co-codamol a day and the pain never leaves me.
    I had a laperectomy (?) in 1975 which made it worse so I don't think I'd ever consider surgery again.
    Cannabid oil seems to work miracles for some people, but you get no instructions over the internet as apparently this is against the law.  Its not available here in the UK but its not illegal, so the internet is the only source.

    Since writing my last post I see it is now available in healthfood shops and Boots.

  • CBD is great. If you are in a legal state, look up RSO
