I used this for some localized pain a few months back -- it seemed to work better than the other meds I had, both Rx and over-the-counter, so I held onto it after the problem subsided.
This last week, I had some really bad tendonitis -- I couldn't use my right arm at all (if you don't know, you can live as long with tendonitis as you could without it, but the pain can be horrible). I had only a little swelling, but couldn't rotate my arm in one direction, couldn't lift my hand much higher than my waist, and couldn't twist my wrist at all.
I applied the Flow, and in 15 minutes I was much better. Not out of pain, and it registered badly when I tried to move my arm too far, but I could sleep again. The next morning I was stiff, I applied it again, and again got relief in a quarter of an hour.
I went to the doctor the next day and explained all this -- the nurse taking my history told me her SO had phlebitis and had been prescribed opiates for it. He found this stuff was better for him than the opiates, and seemed to be free of any habituation risk.
I had tried other CBD creams and so on, but this is the only one that really seemed to have effect on my pain, and it works fast. If you don't feel substantially better in half an hour, try something else -- it took me several experiments until I got to this stuff, obviously this is a YMMV situation -- but this is 'right' for me.
