About numerous years ago, I started having complications with arthritis in our hands.
- My knuckles swelled up and became stiff and painful! I was forced to split the rings off our fingers.
I struggled to pull weeds in the garden, braid our hair and type on the keyboard! Since our job involves a fantastic deal of laptop work, arthritis was a immense problem, and at first, I tried natural remedies such as eating yellow raisins soaked in gin. I started taking turmeric and magnesium and got some relief. I was unwilling to take any kind of pharmaceutical that could result in long-term and harmful side-effects. I was also unwilling to spend the money on a nurse’s visit and prescription, but because I don’t have health insurance, I truly couldn’t afford medical treatment. A buddy of mine proposed that I try cannabis. At first, I was a bit reluctant. I didn’t see how smoking a joint and getting high was going to help with our arthritis, and then I did some research and l gained that CBD works to treat inflammation and pain, cBD is 1 of the numerous cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It’s gaining notoriety for its numerous curative properties, and when I visited the dispensary in Whitehall and explained to the budtender what I was looking for, he right away proposed I try topicals. I hadn’t realized there was such a thing as a cannabis-infused topical. The cannabinoids in balms and lotions interact with receptors in the surface of the skin. The terpenes absorb into the skin to supply further relief. There is no high sensation, and the topicals don’t smell love medicine. I’ve noticed a huge improvement. I have less stiffness, swelling and soreness now.
