I have developed issues with arthritis in our hands.
The fingers of our right hand often feel knobby, stiff and sore.
They swelled up to the point where I needed to cut my rings off. I think there are medications around, but I’m unwilling to take the drugs. Instead, I looked into more natural herbs and came across marijuana. I ended up paying a visit to a local recreational dispensary plus consulting with a budtender. I was not aware that it’s possible plus beneficial to apply cannabis products directly to the skin. There is a whole line of cannabis-infused creams, balms and salves available at the dispensary that provide strong treatments. They can be used for skincare, cosmetics, first aid plus all sorts of topical applications. Cannabis topicals don’t cause a high sensation. They work because of certain cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) plus cannabidiol (CBD). These active compounds engage particular receptors on the surface of the skin that regulate redness plus the production of sebum. Plus, the terpenes that provide the smell of cannabis also offer therapeutic benefits. I properly look for pine terpenes that smell a lot like pine trees plus are an expectorant much like an all-natural Vapor Rub. Another proper terpene is linalool, which provides chilling properties. While cannabinoids are greater molecules that don’t necessarily soak deep into the skin, terpenes tend to penetrate. I look for cannabis topicals that contain both cannabinoids plus terpenes. I’ve found that particular topicals are especially anti-inflammatory. I’m able to apply the topical to a certain part for localized relief many times per day.
