CBD pain relief: Reducing vasectomy recovery pain on the NC500

I had a vasectomy and went on a road trip. Not ideal by any means, but I got to see some fantastic beaches, develop my thinking on sharing responsibility around birth control and find a new use for CBD. This is my personal experience with CBD pain relief.

My theory on why CBD helped so much is that CBD helps reduce inflammation, and things were… inflamed.

A little about me

I am a 34-year-old man with two children, in a committed relationship and no desire for more children. Seriously, two is enough. After years of my partner bearing the responsibility of birth control, it was my turn. So, it was time for the snip.

Following the procedure, recovery was on the horizon, but so was our family adventure along Scotland’s North Coast 500. We headed off on our trip with as much ibuprofen and paracetamol as I was allowed to buy, but it turned out they were not as effective as hoped.

The revelation? CBD gummies were far more effective for me. My theory on why CBD helped so much is that CBD helps reduce inflammation, and things were… inflamed.

Just a little side note here – I'm part of the team at Unspun, where we're all about CBD. So yes, I was probably more likely to give CBD pain relief a try than the average Joe.

Back to the trip

The Scottish Highlands are breathtaking. We stumbled upon beaches that were nothing short of spectacular, some of the most pristine and untouched I've ever seen. However, while the roads are a marvel in their own right, they aren't exactly the friendliest for someone fresh out of a sensitive procedure. With each enthusiastic request from my five-year-old for “just one more beach stop”, I found myself silently thanking the CBD for keeping the post-snip discomfort to a minimum.

Side note: if you do find yourself considering an NC500 road trip, we used this awesome guide book.

Taking Responsibility

Driving through the incredible Scottish landscape gave me plenty of time to think. As we aspire to a more equal society, it really should be normalised that men take a proactive role in family planning. Vasectomies are a safe option and a step towards balance in a relationship. It's worth a discussion, isn't it? For men in a similar position to myself, considering a vasectomy is our way of sharing the responsibility. It's a topic that deserves a spot in our everyday conversations.

So my challenge to men who have children and are confident they don't want more. Consider the snip. It's a step towards shared responsibility, highly effective, and honestly, recovery isn't as bad as it's made out to be. And if some aches and pains do come along, CBD might just be the answer.
