Advice & Tips: I bought the cream to try to treat my Fibro pain but it was not effective. One night I was experiencing IBS pain and couldn't sleep so on a fluke I tried the cream. It gave me fairly quick relief and was able to sleep. So I tried it again. And again. It works without fail. I haven't noticed (or tracked) if it affects my other symptoms (diarrhea and constipation and I'm not sure about treating the bloating) but it sure is effective for the pain.

Advice & Tips: I grow my own cannabis and i'm working with different strains. As of now I can keep up with my plants with the help of wife and friends. Tried different sources for processing into oil and got varied results. Some upset my stomach -adding some coconut oil seem to help this. Checked out Charlotte's Web coming out of Colorado. I wanted to get a cutting but they will not give out the plant. You can only order their oil from them (50$ a day). My cost is hard to determine. it's very expensive to grow and it's hard to tell exactly how much it costs me by the time it gets to the finished product.
