Treating arthritis with cannabis

Chicago is known for its long and freezing cold winters.

We often deal with temperatures in the negatives, bitter wind chill and feet of snow.

While I truly love living in this area, the cold weather is hard on my arthritis. During the winter, my fingers swell up like sausages. My knuckles get huge and stiff. It’s difficult for me to make a fist. I struggle to do normal activities such as putting my hair into a ponytail, type on a keyboard and chop vegetables. I’ve already needed to cut my rings off due to the swelling. It can be both painful and frustrating, but thankfully it’s only a problem during the cold weather. I’ve also figured out that I can alleviate the majority of the pain and swelling with cannabis. I am delighted that cannabis is a natural product that avoids the detrimental side-effects of pharmaceuticals. The combination of cannabinoids and terpenes interacts with receptors in the ECS to combat pain and inflammation. Because recreational cannabis is legal in Illinois, I can walk into a dispensary and shop. All I need to do is show a valid government-issued ID, and I have access to a wide variety of consumption methods, strains and potency. They offer smokable flower, pre-rolls, concentrates, vapes, topicals, tinctures, edibles and beverages. The budtenders at the dispensary have been really helpful in recommending products for my arthritis. They have steered me toward balms, disposable carts and tinctures. Because of access to recreational cannabis, I’m able to get through the winter and continue my regular life.
