Now as your reading this you have to be wondering what the heck does any of that have to do with Health Supplements!
Grab a seat and a Jane’s Brew and hear our story:
I’m Ben-David Sheppard, a very active father of 3, I coach my boys in football and lacrosse. I am also the CEO the House of Jane. My boys and I live on the east coast and all of my businesses are on the west coast. Coaching, working and traveling were beating the hell out of me. On top of all that I had recently separated, my right shoulder, and tore my tendon in my left arm in a bad fall. So opening a door, reaching for anything, trying to throw a football were extremely painful if not impossible. I was incapable of using my left arm and right shoulder. I visited two specialist one being the team physician for an NFL team. She gave me 3 options:
Pain medication—not an option due to the fog, lack of focus and addictive effects caused by pain meds
Strengthen both areas thru working out, and suck it up and endure the pain and discomfort.
So option 3 it was:
Day one I could not do a push up, and at night I could not sleep from the pain and the soreness from my working out. I tried night time Tylenol for sleep and woke up groggy and seemed to have problems with recall during the day. So what to do ? Here I was involved in the cannabis business so that was a possible solution, however I did not want to have any psychoactive reactions during the day. I was stubborn, sore, tired, beat up, miserable, refusing to take big pharmaceutical addictive pain killing or sleep walking drugs or cannabis with THC.
Ok back to the Reese’s commercial, I was looking for a boost of energy and was given some B-12 Caffeinated Energy capsules, took them for focus and a boost of energy. They worked great for focus and energy, but with them came the jitters heart palpitations and then a hard crash. At night I needed to get some sleep being so tired, and sore after working out. So I thought I would go to Jill and our Cannabis team, and see what she and they, may suggest I try to help with sleep and ease the pain to relax. Their recommendation was unanimous “CBD”! So the next day before my work out I took my B-12 energy capsule and a dose of CBD for my pain and for anti-inflammation.
