An obvious sales pitch using Joe Rogan’s name

In short, this is the story and also sort of the sales pitch.

As always, strictly paraphrased.

‘Joe Rogan said on his show that some bloke had serious arthritis in his hands, so much that he couldn’t even stretch out all of his fingers. Then he took some CBD and now his fingers are good again. He can now stretch them out all the way.’

End of pitch.

And frankly, there isn’t much more to say about this.

Imagine you get so old that you cannot even stretch out your fingers. They’re crooked. Like a snake. Or, several snakes. You cannot even put your palm onto a table because the palm never reaches the surface of the table.

Your fingers are stiff.


Sounds great, doesn’t it?

I’m sure it does.

Anyway, I don’t have much more to say right now about this issue. If you prefer having crooked and stiff fingers, then that’s on you. And you may ask yourself what you really need to straighten out your fingers for. After all, does it matter that much if you cannot properly stretch them out?

Well, if you intend to hold a cup properly around the handle, then yes.

Or is the thought of spilling hot coffee on your lap that inviting?

For the record, I’ve spilt hot coffee on my chest. It actually left me with a scar tissue. Hurt like there was no tomorrow. Almost made me scream out loud in pain. I promise you, you do not want to go through that.

What about holding a knife and a fork, firmly?

Or a spoon? A spoon full of hot soup? Would really have been a shame if you spilt hot soup all over yourself.

What about lifting a heavy object and a child runs under it and you have to let go?

I don’t even need to finish that, do I?

Actually, I will finish it. But in a different, more encouraging and positive way.

Do what the guy who Joe Rogan talked about did.

Take CBD oil.
