I was in a bike accident over 40 years ago that plagues my neck and shoulder and I am so grateful to have found Releaf. I've been taking Lyrica for the past 5 years or so and it helps-ish along with 600mg of ibuprofen, but as we all there are side-effects and long-term use is not encouraged. About 2 years ago I was in a dispensary and they had a jar open as a sample and while waiting in line I put some on my neck. OMG - sigh - relief, really. The cream itself melts so nicely into my skin and provides really nice friction for massage. My skin has never felt better (now that is a side effect I like!) It lasts for about an hour or so and the nice thing is that when it does come back, it rolls in slowly not wham all back at once and screaming. I use it right before bed which allows me to fall asleep as I feel the pain of the day slip away. It does have somewhat of a mild medicinal smell but I find it to be calming not sharp and overwhelming like Ben-Gay. I've tried other brands and keep coming back to P&B. I seek dispensaries that sell it and advocate for it to the ones that don't. If you suffer from chronic pain, try it, try it, try it.
