I am relieved that recreational marijuana is finally legal in NM, and i was unwilling to pay the money and go through the hassle of qualifying for my medical marijuana card.
I found it crazy that I needed a special card to be allowed to purchase cannabis-infused topicals, however they are an certainly natural, totally safe, plant-sourced medicine.
Because the cannabinoids link to receptors in the skin rather than entering the bloodstream, there are no psychoactive effects. I can apply an ointment loaded with THC and have no high sensation. There is no minimum dosage, allowing me to apply a cannabis topical several times per afternoon. It’s helpful to apply them directly to the section that is a concern. I shop for cannabis-infused topicals at my local Albuquerque dispensary. They carry a rewarding selection of balms, lotions, roll-ons, sprays, salves and ointments infused with both cannabinoids and essential oils. I’ve found that those options high in CBD are beautiful for treating chronic pain and inflammation. I use them after a honestly difficult workout to speed the recovery of an injury. I look for certain terpenes, such as Bisabolol that improves the penetration of cannabinoids. I like the scent of Geraniol for good and anti-inflammatory effects, then cannabis topicals are a superb remedy for all sorts of skin irritations, including acne, eczema, sunburn, bee stings, wounds and more. I use them to help me sleep and to alleviate migraines! One of my favorite products offered at the Albuquerque dispensary are the bath bombs. I drop a bath bomb infused with CBD, CBN, THC, epsom salts and lavender into a hot bath and soak my exhausted muscles.
