While I have not partaken in CBD... yet. It's coming.
I have always believed that nature provides us with natural remedies for most things. The magic drug of the 20th century was a fungus(pennecilin). It was also a rediscovery of something ancient Egyptians used.

If we look at alot of medical treatments we see similar parallels. Leaches are being used again, brain surgery was also performed in ancient Egypt, honey and garlic, urine for jellyfish stings (and is being studied for other anyo venom agents).

I get chronic UTIs. A little trick some people have shared that appears to work is honey with a clove of roasted garlic. Another trick that has worked in the past is a couple of shots of grain alcohol.

I've also had great luck with honey on wounds. In fact honey worked on a serious leg wound. I tried traditional medicine for almost a year. After a year I didn't see much change. In desperation I tried honey, after the advice of a friend. 3 weeks later, honey did what traditional medicine could not in a year.

What sort of things have you found in nature that works as good or better than modern medicine.

Great topic, Bird. I'm interested in reading more from people. I told boyfriend about the honey when I saw it at the grocery. Started with an M? I've considered keeping it on hand, after seeing how much if helped you.

Yeah, its called manuka honey. You can also get medihoney off Amazon pretty cheap. Both work well, the medihoney is a combination of different medicinal honeys and is supposedly better for open wounds.
I used all the manuka and am keeping medihoney on hand. If memory serves it has a better shelf life.

Kratom is another natural help in this world. It's a great supplement for pain and anxiety as well. I've used it for about the last two years. Slowed down recently as I feel like I may have had a build up from prolonged use. Recently picked some more up. And mixing with the cbd it's working wonders.

The Kratom I got ( just a little sample from someone) worked so so well. The yellow vietnam in particular. But I think the CBD is going to work well enough.
Lately I have been taking a supplement called Tumeric and Curcumin along with ginger root. I have only been using it about 2 weeks now so can't really tell yet. I will report back on that after another month or so. I get it a at iherb and it's not too expensive. I only take one of each in the mornings

I've read that turmeric helps with anti-inflammatory. What is the finger root for? I know that was a "miracle drug" in the orient for centuries.

I had an anatomy professor that swore by using licorice for colitis.
He was a chef when he was in school and we had crossed paths in the restuarant industry, so when I was a student we would chat frequently.
Evidently it is highly effective for other things as well.

Well, I just got it because it was said to go well with the the curcumin and Tumeric so maybe those can upset the tummy and this helps to alleviate that? not sure but I figured it couldn't hurt. Here is what it says on the description

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a plant native to Southeast Asia that has a long history of use by traditional herbalists and is commonly used as a culinary spice. Ginger has more recently been shown to support digestive health and helps to temporarily relieve mild nausea and upset stomach. In addition, Ginger possesses a wide range of powerful free radical-quenching compounds.

Just by eating a truly anti-inflammatory diet will make a huge difference in pain management. There are so many foods that cause inflammation that most people don't realize are inflammatory, for instance even the cooking oil you use makes a huge difference, unless they are medium chain trigliceride oils ( real olive, avacado and coconut oils, then you ARE getting inflammation from it and anything made with wheat flour, like breads. I have posted a lot on inflammation over in my Health Article thread. There is a lot of info on natural pain management over there:)

I use organic coconut oil, I use it as a moisturizer, in my hair a tiny bit. I love the stuff and a big jar lasts a long time

That's great, coconut is a good oil for pain management and the whole body health, I eat a tbsp or two every day, it's also a pulling oil

Do you smoke it? I wonder if it would work for me with CBD flower.

It's taken orally. Comes in powder form or pre capsuled. It's ground up kratom tree leaves
I’ve looked at it online but I wasn’t sure which one to get. Do you have a place with a safe payment method?

Most places have stopped taking credit cards unfortunately. Same as vape related stuff. Noone wants to associate with it. But I use ecbotanicals.com. I pay with the venmo app and have never had an issue. Gaia ethnobotanical is another solid vendor. They used to take credit cards but switched to crypto currency and e-check. If you need any other info about it lemme know.
Strains relate this way
Red - pain relief, anti anxiety
Green- pain, anxiety, nice upper mood lift
White- is all upper. More like coffee

Which kratom is related to the coffee plant somewhere down the line. Has opiod effects but no opiods in them. Also great for getting away from pharmaceuticals for pain.

I was on pain meds after I ripped my knee. I got off them, but that was hell doing it. Also getting off the alprazolam sucked. But I did it finally. But now that I’m off all prescription meds, it’s sometimes hard dealing with anxiety or even pain that crops up every so often in my knee.

Thanks for the suggestions. I’ll check them out. I think some vape places online use Venmo, too. I like to use PP if I can, but I understand that they’re in a tight spot now with alternative remedies.
