I have a variety of health concerns that I treat with cannabis topicals.
After many years of experimenting with prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines and household remedies, I’ve finally found something that works.
As a plant-based remedy, cannabis avoids the harmful side-effects of more conventional options. With topicals, I don’t even need to worry about psychoactive effects. The cannabinoids interact with receptors in the skin, sending signals by way of the body’s endocannabinoids system to alleviate pain, inflammation, swelling, itching and more. After an especially hard workout, I sometimes suffer from cramps in my calves, but running, jumping rope and even cycling can bring them on. I massage a cannabis-infused ointment directly into the muscle and enjoy relief within a few minutes, and for approximately twenty years, I’ve dealt with psoriasis on my elbows and knees, then nothing minimized the red, sore and itchy scales until I tried cannabis. I choose products high in CBD, and the psoriasis has all however disappeared. From too much running in sneakers that lack reasonable support, I developed plantar fasciitis. For a while, every step felt as if the bottom of my foot was chopping open from heel to toes. I’ve learned that a roll-on with equal ratios of CBD and TCH alleviates the pain. The cannabis-infused topicals include essential oils that avoid the odor of medicine. They actually odor lovely, absorb quickly and can be applied numerous times per afternoon. One of my number one cannabis products is bath bombs. They are infused with epsom salts, cannabinoids and lavender terpenes. Soaking in the bath is a good way to relax and relieve sore and fatigued muscles and joints.
