Beware the Flames of Hell

One of the worst videos I’ve ever seen was of a woman who showed her bare midriff.

Not because of the body shape or anything else like that. Indeed, she had stretch marks around her stomach. But you couldn’t see the details of how her entire body figure looked like (for, I’m guessing, obvious reasons), so there was no telling how she looked. She could have been either fat or skinny. I really don’t know. What I do know however, was how she had these nipple-ish lumps right above her hip. At least that’s what I think it was. It was hard to tell because of how the camera was angled.

I really don’t know what it was, but it looked like bug bites.

Or some sort of rash.

It was really itchy. And, just the thought of pulling over a tight jumper or a t-shirt gives me the creeps.

I really wouldn’t have done that.

More, imagine having to do some sort of physical labor with that kind of rash. You’re doing whatever chore that needs to be done in the house or wherever, you’re starting to sweat, your clothes get really sticky because of the sweat and then you end up having to call it quits to scratch your itching.

Which makes it even worse.

And it just spirals into badness.

Hey, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. This happens to a lot more people than you think. It’s just that they don’t want to talk about it or display it. It’s embarrassing. Just imagine when you’re getting ready to have some ‘personal time’ with your partner in bed, the lights aren’t off, and the rash is the first thing that they’re seeing…not very inviting or charming, wouldn’t you say?

Just for fun, these rashes are probably what’s known as shingles. Some also call it ‘Hellfire’.

Anyway, why am I bringing this up?

What has this got to do with chronic pain and CBD oil?

Well, not much. And sadly, CBD oil quite likely doesn’t help remove the lumps. They’ll remain in place for some four or five weeks before disappearing by themselves. Maybe you’ll also get a permanent mark where they’ve been.

Look, I’m not one for sugarcoating. I could lie and tell you that swallowing CBD oil would magically make the rash disappear within hours. There are charlatans out there that make such claims. But I’m not one of those.

However, these rashes may cause pain, sleepiness and headache.

It doesn’t happen to all, but some may get it.

Guess what is very efficient against headaches and general pain symptoms?

You’re right — good ole’ Cannabidiol.

Now, before you jump up into the air thinking that CBD oil is going to magically change your life, let’s be real here. CBD oil will not remove the skin rash itself. If it really does that, then we have had a breakthrough in the medical community.

However, all the pain that’s associated with shingles is a different animal.

That’s where the brilliance comes into play.

So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and get some.

Or choose to be left behind with your pain and misery.

The prerogative is yours.
