GUEST POST: Angie Meiggs
This is a real experience with Redeem Therapeutics, as told by a real customer.
Watch Angie tell her story:
My name is Angie Meiggs. I am 47 years old and I live here in the eastern part of North Carolina, we call it Bladen County. I first got interested in hemp oil just purely out of curiosity, I guess you could say, to see if it could address some issues that I was having as I aged.
Long story short, three years ago I had some surgeries that didn't go very well, and I have some leftover complications from those surgeries that resulted in a lot of nerve pain and just physical, chronic pain in my lower back and hips.
I've done over-the-counter, homeopathic-type medications, vitamins, supplements, your over-the-counter pain creams, I've had prescription medications for neuropathy that may have eased some of it, but didn't really take away the effects that I was trying to get rid of.
Long-term medications wasn't my goal, especially at my age, and I just really needed to find something else that was going to give me the opportunity to wean myself off of the products I was taking, and not have to take so many different products. You know, my end game was not to take 50 products a day to get the result I was looking for.
Redeem’s hemp oil really, really helps.
I take Redeem's hemp oil daily, and I don't think I would do without it right now. Usually, within the first three or four days of not taking it, I can tell that something's just not the most optimal me. If I go a week or more without taking it, then I'm regretting my decision to let it run out, for sure.
In the last year or two, who I am on a daily basis and how my peers see me, and how my family sees me, my quality of life, and what I’m able to achieve every day, as long as I'm taking the product, is definitely different. 90% of my time, I don't struggle any with most of the nerve pain and the muscle ache leftover from my surgeries. If I do have a bad day, it's nowhere near what my bad days used to be. My bad days used to put me in pure agony, and down and out, to where I couldn't work, or I stayed in bed to alleviate making the situation worse. Now a bad day is... I take an extra spray or, you know, maybe rub the pain cream in someplace that takes away the agony on top of using the spray, and I’m able to get through my day.
The hemp pain relief cream kind of has a peppermint smell to it. I use the pain cream if I’ve got your typical achy joints and pains that come with age. That's my go-to. Rather than taking an over-the-counter like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. But on my bad days, the pain cream is also used to help subside the nerve pain. I can put it anywhere. I'll put it on my toes, I'll put it on my hips on my lower back, anywhere a woman can find that we have residual nerve pain, I will put it.
But the 1500mg hemp spray is definitely my routine daily use and will always be in my basket as a subscription of routine delivery from here on out. It never goes unordered ever, ever again!
The only side effects I’ve had from my Redeem products, I can honestly, say are the positive ones. So, you know, the positive results, not the side effects. I take the 1500mg full-spectrum spray, and it never leaves me feeling fuzzy-headed, or you know, the “high” that everybody talks about. Definitely no negative effects from my perspective so far.
I was looking for a product when I chose Redeem, that took away all the nuances, so to speak. I was looking for the purity of the product, number one, because there are so many different products on the market that have a lot of additives, or take a lot out of the residual pieces that really count, and that make hemp effective. The pureness of the product really caught my attention, but then ultimately when compared to other products on the market with that purity advertised, the price point just couldn't be matched across competitors.
I've taken several different name brands hemp oils, from your local vape shops to your online mail-order type places, to Redeem and a few competitors that are out on the market. I've tried a lot of different things over the last four years. The Redeem products have definitely been my go-to for the past year, almost a year and a half, I would say.
