A message from the CEO & Founder; Ryan Renick
To be in my early 20’s and my body to feel the way it did, I knew something was wrong. I’d suffered five concussions in high school, four from Texas High School Football and one from being hit by a drunk driver. From this collision, I had a major back injury that affected both of my shoulders. I had also separated both AC joints playing football, as well as shatter the growth plate in my right elbow. It was safe to say I had aches and pains that were not normal for everyone. I had tried what I thought was everything and was coming to a horrible realization that I would have this chronic pain forever. This made college very difficult as the pain in my shoulder and elbow got worse, my headaches turned to migraines, and I developed a sense of anxiety and hints of depression I had not had before. I had always heard of the benefits of CBD, but I figured it would make me groggy and tired.
But, since I have the results that have changed my life forever. No longer do I go through my day with a constant back and shoulder pain and can actually work out and be fit without the pain from my past injuries. My headaches nearly never come unless I’m away from my CBD. My vocabulary and memory improved beyond what I could’ve ever imagined. I am remembering things I hadn’t for years and using words I had never used before. I was more awake through my day and more attentive to my surroundings. What I’m most thankful for is how it has helped me so much with my anxiety as a natural substitute for prescription meds I just personally refused to take.
The other part of my life CBD has touched is through aiding my father in his battle against leukemia. He was diagnosed in 2011, and they only gave him 5 years to live. He was doing chemotherapy in 2013, when he underwent a triple bypass open heart surgery where I saw my dad in a hospital bed fighting relentlessly for his life and his family. Through this time I always wanted to do something to help, and it killed me that I felt like I couldn’t. Over the past few years, I have introduced my father to the benefits of CBD and I couldn’t be more thankful for how it’s helped with his body pain from chemo, his overall health, his memory, and just his overall stature makes it seem like I got my dad back that I could throw the football with in the backyard growing up as a kid. I’m not alone, and so many people out there have a similar situation and with the benefits CBD has to offer there’s no reason to keep this secret hidden.
