Marijuana has been a taboo subject for a long time. People refuse to legalise it because they fear it might cause substance abuse in others. Unfortunately, people are getting addicted to it, but the drug itself is not as dangerous as heroin or cocaine. With enough research and studies, scientists discovered that weed can be used to ease pain in people. This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.

Doctors are prescribing medicinal marijuana in countries where the drug is legal. Not only that, the extract from the herb is used to create CBD oil that is also efficient against pain. Studies have shown that the oil is beneficial against pain. Many studies suggest CBD may activate a system called the endocannabinoid system, which provides relief from the symptoms the patient is experiencing.

Moreover, some people choose to try different treatment for their pain. They’re just not comfortable with any products that is associated with weed. They’re not to blame either. But if you don’t have anything against the drug, then you should try CBD oil for your pain. There is lots of online research to read about other people’s experiences with the oil. Since medicinal marijuana can ease pain, then the oil should be able to do the same thing.

CBD oil can help with a number of conditions including cancer, headaches, IBS, to name a few.

Its far from a cure for cancer, but at least it can ease some of the symptoms in a patient. Radiation causes the patient to vomit and feel nauseated all the time. CBD oil can help reduce the nausea. They suggest you take a drop of CBD oil and hold it under your tongue. This way the substance is properly absorbed in the mouth. Then you can proceed to swallow the liquid. The effect of the oil will not be as good if swallowed directly, that’s why you should follow this step carefully so that you can eliminate all the negative symptoms from the body. This process can be repeated a couple of times during the week but before trying it you should always ask your doctor first.

Headaches are a regular part of our lives. We all know that they can cause incredible frustration and moodiness. Pain in the head can prevent us from doing our daily tasks. That’s where CBD oil comes in handy. It can even be more functional than other medications as it reduces inflammation that causes the headache in the first place.

Another important thing that you should remember is take the oil regularly. This is the only way that it will prove effective. Every time you have a headache you can take the oil in a capsule and let the liquid work its magic. The oil doesn’t cause any negative symptoms, unlike other medications that can cause dizziness and fatigue.

People that suffer from irritable bowel syndrome know that the disease can be a huge inconvenience. Taking the oil can reduce some of the symptoms of IBS. This means that you won’t get bloated as often and you should be able to rest better as well. The only way that this can be effective for IBS is by smoking or vaping the oil. First and foremost you need to start with an oil that has a lower concentration of CBD, then work your way through it. Your body needs to adjust to the change after vaping the oil. With time you can use a liquid with a higher consistency of CBD.

Furthermore, you should be able to notice a difference with time but have patience as nothing works right from the start. You need to take your time with the oil as with any medication prescribed. Always remember to see your Doctor first before trying any new type of treatment. Make sure that you follow the instructions of the doctor carefully so that the end result can be satisfactory.

In the event that you battle to stand while using open transport, there is a free identification badge which enables you to alarm others that you need a seat.

A considerable number of people have conditions or a sickness but have nothing to show about there condition are in need of a seat on all forms of transport. With this badge you don’t have to clarify your purpose behind the badge but you should be offered a seat.

Around 78 per cent of people who carry the TfL badge say that they now find it a lot easier to get a seat on the bus or Tube. But this is a London-centred scheme. With more than one in six people in the UK have an ‘activity limiting’ condition, accounts from across the UK generally paint a picture of inaccessibility and discomfort on public transport for those with invisible conditions.

If you see someone with a badge or card and you are seated, they say you should stand and offer them your seat. While there are priority seats on public transport, they would like to encourage all customers in any seat, to be considerate and offer their seat to those that are less able to stand.

I am surprised it has taken so long for this to be developed but just reading the difference it has made to people suffering from MS, cancer, being pregnant, to name a few. I just hope it won’t be long before other councils follow suit. If your council has launched this please let us know in a comment for others to take advantage of it.

Not all local councils cover this badge but it might be just worth writing to yours if you cannot find anything online. The ones I found were London, Greater Manchester, and Network West Midlands.


This month’s back pain tips are –

Take something to control the pain and stay active. Bed-rest is not the answer.

Classic Pilates moves support the spine and can create a flat tum in the process !!

Revamp your bed to get a good night’s sleep. They say one in ten cases of back pain could be caused by old or poorly supportive mattresses. There are a number of mattress companies that run a ‘try before you buy’ offer so if you get the wrong type you could change it for another type.


What is a slipped disc? Well, the spine’s vertebrae are separated by discs of cartilage which is made up of a tough outer ring with a soft jelly-like substance inside.

When you have a slipped disc, the soft part escapes between the vertebrae and can press on a nerve. The NHS point out that –

A slipped disc (also called a prolapsed or herniated disc) can cause:

  • lower back pain
  • numbness or tingling in your shoulders, back, arms, hands, legs or feet
  • neck pain
  • problems bending or straightening your back
  • muscle weakness
  • pain in the buttocks, hips or legs if the disc is pressing on the sciatic nerve (sciatica)

Axappp Health say that not all slipped discs cause symptoms. Many people will never know they have slipped a disc. Most people recover from a slipped disc. The spinal disc usually shrinks back and stops pushing on the nerve. In some cases, however, the disc can keep pressuring the nerve. Recovery can take, usually between one and three months.

Some of the causes of a slipped disc include age as our spinal discs degenerate over the years through wear and tear.

Another cause could be that the disc is damaged through strain and pressure. If you lift or bend awkwardly or injure your back in an accident this could cause a disc to prolapse.

Smoking, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle could all be factors in a slipped disc as well as sports that involve a lot of weights.
