“I support CBD because I have a daughter that was born with scoliosis and hip impingement syndrome. After the surgery on her spine we were told that she would always be susceptible to opioid addiction because of the pain should would find herself in throughout life. We chose CBD! CBD has been a blessing to our daughter and my family because it has allowed my daughter get through the tough times without having to rely on opioids. For my family and I, we find CBD to be a Gift from God.”
