Who thought getting up from the toilet would require so much use of your leg muscles?
OK, maybe that’s TMI, but you get the point, right? ?
I’m Torey Lynn and I’m the founder of Simply CBD & Me.
Nice to meet you!
Turning 40 seemed like the magical “over the hill” number when EVERYTHING in my life seemed to tumble down that stinking hill so quickly!
My brain seemed to slow down by this time in my life (I could no longer complete eight hours worth of work in a four-hour work day), and my joints and muscles started aching so badly that simple tasks became difficult!
Even an easy task such as folding laundry became a very tiring chore – the muscles in my arms ached so badly and I was miserable suffering in silence!
Life After 40 Was No Life At All
For fun, and as a die hard Scorpio, I love being near the water.
The terrible pain in my feet and legs made it difficult to enjoy walking in the sand and wading in the cold Pacific Ocean at the Oregon Coast.
For several days after, I’d pop OTC pain meds to keep me from going crazy with all the extra pain!
How is this living?
I thought 40 was supposed to be the new 30.
Not for me, apparently!
Arthritis Is For Older People, Right?
Fast forward to early 2018…
After numerous attempts at feeling better with taking Magnesium supplements, Vitamin D-3, Glucosamine, etc, I had a new problem….
Arthritis in my knee.
I’m talking painful, my brain-doesn’t-want-to-tell-my-knee-to-bend type of stiffness.
Wait, what? ?
I thought arthritis was for older people.
Apparently, it was my destiny!
Getting my mineral and vitamin deficiencies under control helped my other pain a bit, but with my newly stiff knee, I knew I had to do something more.
I wasn’t quite ready to throw in the towel at living my best years of my life.
Then I found CBD Oil. ?
How CBD Changed My Life
My partner introduced me to this wonderful plant, hemp. He has a company specializing in CBD Oil for dogs, and with his guidance and resources, I quickly learned the science behind CBD, terpenes and other chemicals in the cannabis and hemp plants.
I had to give it a try…and I’m so glad I did!
CBD Oil changed my life – I’ll be super cliche and tell you it’s been a “game changer”.
It literally gave me my life back. This is the only way I can describe it.
CBD For Pain
After I tried several brands of CBD Oil (both isolate and full spectrum hemp oil), I figured out my “sweet spot” dose and taking it consistently has greatly reduced my pain, even noticeable in the first few days of dosing.
I range from 80% to 99% pain free, and often skip a day or two because I feel I don’t need CBD at times. On other days, I sometimes take an extra dose.
Walks in the park on sunny Fall days became a new-found activity for me. ?
Low tide at the Oregon Coast meant walking in the sand and exploring the star fish and other sea creatures on the rocks … having fun without all the extra pain is my new life! YIPPEE! ?
Finally, I’m living my best years of my life in my 40’s!
I recently shared this life-changing moment with members of My 17 Day Diet Blog community, and they were blown away.
I knew for a fact that there were others experiencing the same, if not worse, kind of pain and I had to spread the news about CBD Oil and its life-changing effects on me.
Let me ask you this – If you knew of something that could help transform the lives of others, wouldn’t you want to share it as much as possible?
Recently, I had a community member thank me for letting her know about CBD Oil – she started dosing and was able, for the first time in 20 years, walk without a cane! Now, talk about life changing!
Simply CBD & Me
I founded this website, Simply CBD & Me, based on the premise that I would spread the word about CBD and its benefits. It would be selfish of me to keep this a secret.
My mission is to share the healthy benefits of CBD. I’ll do this by sharing science-based education about CBD, as well as share my own personal experiences.
I’ll give you my honest and candid thoughts on different brands of CBD Oil I’ve tried to help guide you in the decision-making process when it comes to managing your pain with CBD.
Whether you’re new to CBD or you’ve been experiencing the benefits for any length of time, I welcome you to Simply CBD & Me.
I’d love to hear from you and your story!
