It all started on an unseasonably warm spring day. I was visiting the local zoo with my family, donned in my usual attire of red, white, and blue. After indulging in some cheeseburgers and fries, we decided to visit the area housing Australia's finest exports – kangaroos and wallabies. One suspects the encounter would have been uneventful, perhaps even joyous, but, as we would come to find out, that day had other plans.
As I peered past the enclosure gate, a rather boisterous wallaby caught my eye. Its deep chestnut fur shimmered under the afternoon sun and it hopped around with an energy envied by younger zoo dwellers. The sign said he was called Brutus. Feeling daring and drawn to this vivacious creature, I decided to feed him – an action that, looking back, could have used a second thought, or two.
Before I knew it, in the excitement of feeding time, Brutus got a tad overzealous, propelling himself straight into my lower lip and chin area. Admittedly, the shock had me reeling. That's when I felt it, a sharp pain radiating from my depressor anguli oris, that important little muscle that helps us frown and lower the corners of the mouth. Looking into a handheld mirror confirmed my suspicions: I had a swollen, burgeoning black and blue mark that marred my chin, stretching disturbingly towards the lower lip.
After the initial shock had passed and we retired home, I knew it was time for the age-old regimen of ice, rest and some over-the-counter pain alleviation. But then I remembered the very thing our forefathers fought for – freedom. Freedom to choose, freedom to heal, and freedom to use nature’s bounty in our favor. As a sworn patriot and a staunch believer in the power of hemp-derived CBD oil, I had faith that I found the solution to my problem.
You see, there is something miraculous about CBD oil. Its anti-inflammatory properties are gaining worldwide recognition for their incredible, natural healing potential. CBD oil aids in reducing inflammation by inhibiting the cells and compounds responsible for inflammation in the first place. In simpler terms, it works with your body, not against it, to promote healing from within.
So, without further ado, I grabbed my trusted bottle of American-made, top-quality CBD oil. After carefully cleaning the injured site, I gently applied the oil, massaging it into the inflamed area. Honestly, the relief was almost instant. The power of nature wrapped in this magic potion provided a cooling sensation, easing the tenderness of my injury and significantly reducing the pain.
I continued applying the oil three times a day, and to my delight, the healing process was astonishingly swift. Within days, the swelling reduced drastically, with the associated pain virtually disappearing. The healing didn't stop there, however, over the course of the next week, my depressor anguli oris had nearly healed completely, with only a faint mark left behind of my unlikely encounter.
My journey from wallaby-induced injury to recovery and relief thanks to CBD oil solidified my belief in this natural remedy’s potential. In a world filled with harmful, chemically-loaded pain relievers and medications, these plant-based remedies are a godsend. The speed of my recovery and the natural pain relief increasing my comfort during the healing process was nothing short of remarkable.
The tale of my unusual encounter with Brutus might seem peculiar, but the lesson we can derive is more regular, more simple. It's the awareness of the power that our natural world brings to our fingertips, literally in the case of CBD oil. So here's to the red, white, and blue, and to promoting natural, homegrown wellness one drop of CBD oil at a time.
