Dealing With Chronic Pain | Our Remedy Review

As someone that suffers with chronic pain, I already rattle like a pill bottle with my medications to keep the pain at a manageable level so you know when it comes to that time of the month and cramps the last thing I want to take is another pill to help it not feel like my uterus is trying to turn itself inside out! Something I've been looking into since the beginning of 2020 is trying out CBD oil to see if it can help not only with my chronic pain but also if it can help with my anxiety and help calm my overactive mind.

What is CBD oil?
The first Cannabinoid Cannabidol (CBD) has been around since 1942 and medical marijuana was first legalised in 1996 which then lead to studies into the medical uses for cannabinoid. CBD is extracted into a distilled oil which can be ingested by humans and animals that is non-intoxicating so it is not able to make you high like the traditional cannabis plant. It was only in 2016 that CBD oil really started to snowball and gain the popularity it has today after the story of Charlotte Figi came to light and it talked about how Charlotte and her family had tried all modern medicine options and had turned to CBD to treat her seizures. She had gone from having over 300 seizures a week to having 2 to 3 seizures a month. 

Our Remedy
Our Remedy was created by an amazing woman named Rachel who found CBD oil a great way to help with sleep and anxiety issues but she was plagued with never finding one she liked the taste of which resulted in her putting off taking it and the problems began creeping back in so it inspired her to create her own focusing on helping women with their period problems from someone who understands it all. Rachel also designed Our Remedy to be environmentally conscious so her CBD oil is packaged in recycled packaging and printed using soy ink. They are also the first and only company within the UK that offers plastic-free refills so once you've purchased your first bottle, you can purchase the refill with the aluminium cap for £5 cheaper. You get a 500mg/10ml bottle of Our Remedy CBD for only £31.99 with the refill costing £26.99.

I've been putting Our Remedy to the test for the past couple of weeks and I'm really impressed with how well I've gotten along with it. On my days off work, I've been taking 1/2 a pipette every morning and some days taking an extra 1/2 a pipette later in the day depending on how my pain levels and anxiety are. Because I'm so busy with my life outside of work that I'm so cautious about taking anything medication or otherwise that might make me spaced out or sleepy and even though I'd done all my research about CBD, I was still nervous about that happening. Thankfully I didn't experience any feelings of being spaced out or extra sleepy (I'm a sleepy, fatigued person in general), it actually helped me feel really calm and my hormones felt very centred and in check. 

As well as having chronic pain, I have suffered on and off with menstrual cramps that usually come on once a month for a couple of days and they're normally bad enough to wake me up in the early hours of the morning (isn't it such a joy being a woman sometimes?!), honestly sometimes it feels like someone is trying to dig their way to China via my uterus. Since I've started taking Our Remedy CBD every morning, I've noticed that my cramps are nowhere near as painful and are much more manageable with just an ibuprofen or using my heat pad for a little bit. Something that made me very nervous with trying CBD oil and the reason it took me over half a year to actually try it out was the taste. Thankfully Rachel and the lovely folks at Our Remedy have thought of that included peppermint and clary sage to make it taste nice and not herbally cause honestly if it doesn't taste nice, I'm simply not going to use it! 

I've been so pleased with how my first experiences with CBD oil has gone and I'm going to be repurchasing Our Remedy once my current bottle runs out. I love that not only did it help with all the horrible symptoms that come along with my period but it also helped with my chronic pain and my anxiety.

Have you tried CBD oil before?
