I was hesitant to jump on the CBD train, to be honest. However, after a friend with severe arthritis told me about EMT's products, I decided I had nothing to lose and gave the Medi Cool Recovery a try. I am so glad that I did! I have chronic pain due to scoliosis and a few other orthopedic issues. My body aches are for real, and I'm against using heavy duty pain meds that doctors have offered in the past. On the rough days, especially when I've been on my feet all day, I'm grateful for my Medi Cool Recovery tube. It's smaller than my deodorant stick so it's convenient to just throw it in my purse. It smells slightly minty, but not so strong that people around you will notice and wonder what on earth you're wearing. But most importantly, within 5-10 minutes I usually have the sudden realization that, hey, this is working! And on the days I don't have it with me, I like to apply it before bed or after a shower to help my muscles recover and relax for a good night of sleep. If I wake up a little achey (like on rainy or snowy mornings) I like to put it on the zones I'm feeling most miserable right after my shower to help me get going without the morning pain. This stuff really is great - you won't regret spending the money!
