Hemp and the Prince of Darkness
Injuries are a part of life. Whether you are a superstar athlete, weekend warrior, or just the type that likes to text and walk, injuries are going to happen. Injuries become even more likely when you live a life like the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne. He recently took a tumble and is using CBD according to SHARON!
Not all injuries are created equal and when you calculate in pain tolerance, the way we deal with those injuries depends on the individual in question.

Asked if she is concerned that Ozzy — who has a history of addiction — might get hooked on painkillers while he is recovering, Sharon responded: 'He's off all of that. He had to have it after he was operated on the last time.'
Long term use of oxycotin, fentanyl or even other illicit drugs can cause major health problems, even death. Even regular use of ibuprofen and acetaminophen can have negative side effects from altering one’s mood to liver damage. The world of pharmaceutical and over the counter drugs can be a nasty one and for some it gets the best of them. Many people are led down the dark road of addiction due to injury. For those who have dealt with addiction or for people looking to avoid the grip of addiction, there are alternatives.
