    Creakey Bones

    I’m 18 years old and recently i’ve been experiencing a creaking feeling every time I turn my neck. I looked it up and found results, such as crepitus.

    Rheumatoid Arthritis

    I would like to get some feedback from anyone who suffers with pain. Who may have heard about this CBD OIL/HEMP OIL breakthrough for pain control. Thoughts, opinions, anything. I've suffered with Fibromyalgia for 12 years. Now was diagnosed with Rheumatoid and Psoriatic arthritis almost 3yrs ago. I'm on opiate pain meds and really don't want to be for the rest of my life and am looking for anything more natural. Any suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.
