For millions of Americans across the country, dealing with chronic pain can be a debilitating and (at times) crippling part of life. However, imagine how difficult this situation might be if you try different types of medication, and nothing seems to work. Of course, you don’t want to turn to opioids, which can potentially be addictive and can end up doing more harm than good. So what is the next step for you? What are your treatment options? According to one 22-year old man who is suffering from arthritis, the answer is simple: hemp (a variety of marijuana). So how has the little green plan managed to make headlines this time? Let’s take a closer look and find out more.
Living with Long-Term Pain
Since the age of 14, 22-year old Garrett Greller has endured arthritis in his knees, hips, ankles, and back, and, unfortunately, most traditional treatments did not appear to alleviate his condition. Over the course of spending thousands of dollars on completely useless medication, Greller was terrified that he would have to suffer through excruciating pain for the rest of his life. Determined and ready, he trudged along to find an alternative solution that would not produce any nasty side effects and (most importantly) would actually help.
Sometime later, Greller worked with an FDA-registered laboratory to create a natural medication derived from the hemp plant, which he believed could help millions of Americans cope with irritating or chronic pain. The result of his venture was the nationally acclaimed Uncle Bud’s Topical Pain Reliever. Now, the brand has moved beyond pain relief to include products for cosmetic and personal care.
No Stranger to Pain
At this time, the product is so popular that it has attracted the attention of Toni Braxton, who recently supported Uncle Bud’s as a healthy source of relief for her long-term pain. After Las Vegas performance in 2008, the singer collapsed backstage and was ultimately diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disease characterized by chronic inflammation and severe joint pain (besides other terrible symptoms). Although doctors initially warned her that she would have to quit performing, Braxton has found a way to continue her busy lifestyle with the help of the hemp-products at Uncle Bud’s.
