I was involved in a nasty car accident a few years ago. Another driver was texting, swerved into my lane, and we crashed nearly head-on. The jaws of life were needed to cut my out of my vehicle. The car was totalled, and I suffered an assortment of broken bones and a concussion. The damage to my hip, knee and ankle required surgeries and the insertion of pins. I went through extensive physical therapy and have never fully recovered. I now deal with pain and inflammation in my joints. I have difficulty going up or down stairs, sleeping or doing anything overly physical. I also have severe anxiety whenever I drive. I am thankful that I work from home and am not required to leave the house all that often. I am extremely fortunate that the nearby cannabis dispensary provides delivery. While I initially took various pharmaceuticals for pain relief, I was not happy with the addictive potential or harmful side-effects. I prefer to put only natural products into my body. I have always been a believer in the healing powers of cannabis. CBD is an effective, plant-sourced remedy for pain, inflammation, anxiety and a lost list of physical and psychological ailments. Those cannabis products with a higher CBD to THC ratio work well for me. During the day, I prefer vapes because they are very simple, make no mess and provide quick onset of effects. I can inhale the cannabinoids without needed any extra gear or creating smoke or odors. The vape pens fit right into a pocket and can be easily carried around with me. I utilize cannabis-infused topicals and bath salts to target painful and stiff joints from the outside. Because they cause no psychoactive effects, there are no minimum dosage warnings. I can reapply throughout theday.
