A Success Story: How CBD Helped Debby to Say Goodbye to Pharmaceutical Painkillers

Embracing Natural Relief: Debby’s Triumph Over Chronic Pain with Tonico’s CBD


This country’s out-of-control opioid crisis has many turning towards natural solutions for pain management, one of which is Cannabidiol, or CBD. Here at Tonico, we’ve seen the transformative power of our CBD products in our customers’ lives. Today, we’d like to share the inspirational story of Debby, one of our clients who has used our CBD to break free from the cycle of pharmaceutical painkillers.

Debby’s Journey Through Pain

Born in Fond du Lac to a polka musician family, Debby’s life took a painful turn in 2009, when she herniated discs in her neck while setting up for an event. This was followed by a few more bad falls that aggravated her back and produced a concussion. The aftermath? A grim rotation of pharmaceutical painkillers – Gabapentin, Tramodol, Codeine, Vicodin, Darvocet, and Oxys – each with their debilitating side effects.

The Discovery of CBD

Desperate for a natural, effective alternative, Debby found herself researching CBD. Tonico was not the first CBD brand she tried, but it was definitely the one that made a difference. Debby learned about our Tonico CBD oil through Nourished Kitchen and decided to give it a try.

The Transition to Tonico’s CBD

Adept at making informed decisions, Debby found help from a Colorado nonprofit called Realm of Caring, which supports cannabis research, education, and product guidance. Eventually she found Tonico, “the most effective and natural form I’ve triedf,” she’s quick to add. Her method of intake? A bottle of Tonico’s Soothe Original CBD oil per month, often added to her coffee and a bottle of Calm Energy gummies.

Life-Altering Effects of Tonico’s CBD

Tonico’s CBD oil didn’t just offer Debby relief from her chronic pain, but also a newfound sense of freedom from the relentless cycle of pharmaceutical drugs. In January of 2023, she celebrated a triumphant year being drug-free, a victory she proudly attributes to our CBD oil.

The Science Behind CBD

Debby’s personal victory aligns with findings from esteemed institutions like Johns Hopkins and Realm of Caring, whose studies support CBD’s effectiveness in pain management. By interacting with the endocannabinoid system in the human body, CBD offers a less harmful alternative to traditional painkillers.
