“Pretty numb to be honest with you, really no emotion…just waiting for minutes to pass by. You catch yourself watching the clock,” Mclaughlin said.
Mclaughlin describes how he felt after receiving a life changing diagnosis.
“Not being able to eat, sleep, the pain, the list really goes on,” Mclaughlin said.
The 22 year old outdoors man and athlete had Lyme Disease and would later end up needing brain surgery.
“The amount of prescriptions that I had leaving my brain surgery was unbelievable and that brought on other complications,” Mclaughlin said.
Complications that could have been life threatening according to Mclauhlin’s doctors. Fed up with not seeing results from his prescriptions, Mclaughlin asked for an alternative. His doctor suggested CBD.
“CBD is a cannabinoid, it comes from industrial hemp plants that grow little to no THC so you’re not gonna get high from the product,” Mclaughlin said.
“Not only is my mental state much better but my body state as far as organs and such like that is a lot healthier to there is still a lot room to make up but we’re on the right track for sure,” Mclaughlin said.
Collin says the supplement has had so much of an impact on his life, that he now spends his days helping others looking for relief who come into Natural Healing CBD in Horseheads.
“It’s an amazing thing to be able to help somebody out and not have to give them a harsh product. This is all natural so it’s going to be very easy on the body, it’s a beautiful thing,” Mclaughlin said.
