ANYONE looking for a solution to a health problem that doesn’t respond to conventional medicine could do worse than walk into a new shop on Tavistock’s Brook Street.
Opened last summer by local hotelier Matt Cook, Milagro offers cannabidiol (CBD), an oil derived from the cannabis plant that has potential health benefits when ingested, including reducing inflammation and pain, relieving anxiety and depression, that benefit the heart and the symptoms of chronic diseases including MS.
Matt himself became a convert when he tried CBD for the painful carpal tunnel syndrome in his right wrist, which was making it difficult for this 20-year-old chef to pick up a knife.
The pain was so bad that he feared losing his ability to work. Then he heard about CBD, an oil derived from the cannabis plan – without, as he points out, containing any mind-altering substance THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), but another compound in the plant.
Matt was so impressed with the results of this particular CBD, a premium product supplied by Milagro, that he bought the Milagro South West franchise and is now offering to ship it from Taunton all the way down to Land’s End through his website â?? cbdsouth.co.uk â?? and in person at his shop at 32b Brook Street.
Here he can talk to people about the benefits he has found from taking the oil himself –?? Two drops under the tongue three times a day â?? to relieve the pain in his wrist caused by carpal tunnel syndrome and to address and reduce the mental health problems he has suffered.
He has since found great satisfaction in helping other people, including a woman with MS (multiple sclerosis) who said she had the best night’s sleep since taking the drops.
“There’s a misconception about CBD that people think it gets them high. They think it’s an illegal drug, they’re going to fail a drug test, they can’t drive and stuff like that,” says Matt. ‘
“Once you get past that barrier, explain that it’s not illegal, it’s remarkable that it’s about nature. They then identify their problems, whether they have arthritic issues, pain, insomnia, anxiety, or something more sinister. They simply lead them to the right product. Generally, nine times out of ten, it’s the drops. It’s about them trusting you that it’s going to work and being able to go away and try it out and then come back when it works.
“A lady I just spoke to on the phone said she takes another company’s CBD drops and I gave her ours. She’s only been taking it for two days. She’s slept the best two nights in years and she has MS.
“The effect varies from person to person; There are many factors that contribute â?? Body size, metabolism, whether they are prone to taking painkillers or pain relievers –?? All of these things are factors in how quickly it works.
“But overall I believe in the product and I believe it will help people and give them a better quality of life. I’m not in this for the money. Of course I have to pay my bills, but I want to help people. I like helping people. I enjoy knowing that I’ve done someone good.”
He talks about how CBD oil helped a man with irritable bowel syndrome and another person who tried CBD for anxiety and well-being. CBD oil is all the rage right now, helping people deal naturally with many of the ailments and anxieties that the coronavirus pandemic has only made worse. Matt points out that his therapeutic powers are not a new discovery.
“It’s a plant that has been used for thousands of years,” he says. “While decades of cannabis production might lead some to believe that the therapeutic benefits of CBD are a recent discovery, that is far from the truth.”
The first documented use of cannabis-derived medicine dates back to 2737 BC. When the Chinese Emperor Sheng Nung used a cannabis-infused tea to relieve various ailments including memory, malaria, rheumatism and gout.
Throughout history, cannabis has served as a valuable therapeutic resource; However, due to a lack of scientific evidence of its therapeutic abilities, it has not been widely recognized by most physicians in modern medicine. More recently, however, its ability to help the body has been validated by understanding cannabinoid structure and discovering the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) –?? a network of receptors that interact with receptors in cannabinoids to produce beneficial effects in the body. Many people have reported that CBD oil has helped relieve them from a range of health problems. It can help prevent seizures in rare forms of epilepsy; reduce inflammation and pain; help with autoimmune and neurological disorders; help with some mental illnesses, including PTSD, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Its many potential benefits are currently under investigation.
Milagro is passionate about the power of CBD products and its primary goal is to research and develop innovative products. Milagro CBD Oil is a distilled CBD oil made from high-quality hemp organically grown in Europe and extracted using the cold-press method to maximize the potency of phytocannabinoids â?? CBD, CBG and CBN. The oil is then distilled, winterized, and separated to yield a smooth CBD oil that can be taken as a dietary supplement. Milagro CBD oil is well tolerated with few reported side effects.
CBD can also have benefits for pets, and Milagro offers a highly rated CBD oil for pets that helps cats, dogs, and horses with many of the same ailments it can help humans with.
Matt also offers an affiliate program that allows anyone who recommends products to friends to benefit from a discount on future purchases themselves. He urges anyone interested to go to the store to find out more.
“We’re here to help,” he says. “Even if people just want to stop by and chat, there is no obligation to buy anything. I hear people talk about getting high walking past the store, but that’s not the point. CBD is about health and wellness, to help you have a better quality of life, to help you sleep at night so your worries don’t weigh you down. For me personally and for my customers who keep coming back, it has brought a lot, which I really appreciate.”
