Not for Men (Over 50) Only...

The Facebook version of this post sparked so much interest that I wanted to make sure it had a less ephemeral home.  Please feel free to share it!

Are you a man over 50 (or do you have someone in your life who is)? If so, I'm pretty sure you'll be interested in my story. In fact, I think you'll be interested in my story if you suffer from any kind of inflammation, chronic or otherwise...

It all started with my regular visit to the urologist this week. More accurately, this was an irregular visit to my urologist because at my visit three months earlier, my PSA had spiked to concerningly high levels. This, after continuing to rise steadily for three years. In fact, my elevated PSA had been worrisome enough over the years that I had already been through two prostate biopsies and an MRI. Fortunately, none showed any signs of cancer. 

At the same time, the urologist wanted to see me more often in order to more closely monitor my PSA. That's why I was back in her office on Monday.

The news? For the first time ever, it was good: My PSA had plummeted. For the first time, it was almost normal. It had never been anywhere near normal.

The doctor was ecstatic, and I was relieved.

I naturally assumed that the good news was the result of new medication I had recently started taking. I was wrong. Turns out that it was too early for that medication to have kicked in.

So what had happened? What in my life had changed so radically that my PSA level had dropped by nearly two-thirds?  

CBD oil had happened.

I'm not making this up! I started taking CBD oil last month and according to my urologist, that's what probably made the difference.

To be clear, CBD oil may not help with a prostate that is simply enlarged. But many men of a certain age (including me, it seems) have chronic prostate inflammations that can cause our PSA to spike. That's where CBD oil comes in; it's an anti-inflammatory.

I wasn't (knowingly) taking CBD oil for my prostate. Rather, I started taking it for my anxiety, and it has helped (see my recent blog post, "High Anxiety"). Little did I know that it was also working on my prostate. If I hadn't already been sold on the benefits of CBD oil, I am now!


The CBD oil that did the trick for me is the 500mg full-spectrum peppermint-flavored variety from Hempworx, a product I also sell. What's great about Hempworx CBD oil is that it's full spectrum (in other words, it uses every part of the plant for maximum benefit), it contains no fillers or additives, and it's derived from GMO-free hemp that's organically grown here in the US.

If you have chronic prostate inflammation or any kind of inflammation issue, consider giving Hempworx CBD oil a try. (Of course, it can also help with other health issues.)

Reach out to me for more information or visit and get yourself a bottle**. (If it doesn't work for you, send it back; Hempworx products come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.) I also sell it directly from here on my website at

Hempworx also sells other hemp-derived health and wellness products, including some for your dog! You'll find those as well on my Hempworx site

Once again, if you have any questions at all about CBD oil, including about my experiences with it, please drop me a line here on my website.

By the way, CBD is not a psychoactive, which is typically associated with marijuana products high in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Simply put, CBD is not marijuana; it cannot make you high.

** Currently, Hempworx products ship only to US, UK and EU addresses, but the company is working to get other countries (including Canada) on board. Hempworx products should be more internationally available in the coming weeks and months.
