I’m Benji. In 2006, I was severely injured in a near fatal car wreck. I spent five days in a coma and woke to discover that one of my arms was completely paralyzed and the other nearly severed. I endured numerous surgeries but still carry the weight of a dead arm, have scars on my entire body, and live in constant pain. I’m lucky to have survived the crash.
Over the last decade, I have been prescribed a ton of medications. The side effects from the medications always made me feel sick and, of course, I was aware of their addictive tendencies. I quickly would build up a tolerance to these drugs – requiring prescriptions for even more drugs. It was always either up the dose, or deal with the pain.
In 2017, I found CBD through a friend. I used 200mg of 99%+ pure CBD isolate and exhaled what felt like all of the pain in my body. That experience changed my life forever. I started experimenting with making CBD products for myself. I wanted to share what I was making and told my friends to “hit me up” if they were interested... thus “CBD HMU” began.
