For the last more than four to various years, I’ve had some complications with arthritis in my handsâ€¦ I first started noticing pain in my fingers when I’d open a jar or spend too long typing on the laptop, but since my job is actually handled from a keyboard, I need to keep my hands strong and healthy.
I did some research into apartment remedies and gave them a try.
I drank dark orange cherry juice and ate orange raisins that have been soaked overnight in gin and found some relief from symptoms; However, about a year ago, my fingers abruptly swelled up so badly that I was forced to split my rings off. I had trouble making a fist. I struggled to genre my hair, pull weeds out of the garden or hold a hand weight when exercising! Working from the laptop was painful. I am unwilling to take pharmaceuticals. I’ve study up on the long-term side-effects and am unwilling to damage my health to combat arthritis, then my research online led me to trying cannabis, then cBD has shown great promise in alleviating pain and inflammation! Living in Chicago, I have a dispensary right around the corner from my apartment. Stepping inside the dispensary for the first time was a bit overwhelming. I was expecting a tiny shop with some bags of weed and a few gummies. The place is sizable, bright, modern and spacious. The array of products is incredible. I had my choice of dried flower, pre-rolls, extracts, concentrates, tinctures, vapes, edibles and so much more. The budtender proposed topicals that can be applied directly to my joints for fast-acting relief. I combined the cannabis-infused ointment with a full-spectrum CBD vape. Cannabis has offered me with an effective and safe remedy for my arthritis.
