I can treat my symptoms of arthritis with a combination of a topical & a tincture.
I was glad when recreational cannabis was finally legalized in my state. I’d been reluctant to apply for my medical marijuana card due to the time & expense involved. The card expires after a year, & the process needs to be repeated, then however, I suffer from a variety of health troubles, and none of my troubles are overly severe, however they do affect my quality of life. I am unwilling to take synthetic pharmaceuticals & risk the adverse & long-term side-effects. I love natural remedies. Cannabis is safe & offers curative properties. I am most interested in those products with a higher CBD to THC ratio. I don’t want to get high or be impaired. CBD has no psychoactive effects & helps to offset the disadvantage aspects of THC. The two cannabinoids work together in what’s called the entourage effect to maximize benefits! Since entering menopause, I’ve had difficulties with insomnia. I was sad to purchase an indica strain of gummies that would provide sedative effects. While the effects of edibles take multiple hours to set in, they are regularly more intense & long-lasting. I have found that eating a gummy an hour or two prior to getting ready to bed would help me sleep. I also deal with a mild case of arthritis in my fingers that occasionally flares up. All of a sudden, my knuckles will swell & my fingers will become stiff & painful. CBD is a natural pain-reliever & anti-inflammatory. I can treat my symptoms of arthritis with a combination of a topical & a tincture. I apply a cannabis-infused ointment directly to my hands. The cannabinoids influence receptors in the skin to alleviate symptoms. The tincture is absorbed sublingually for rapid onset of effects.
