Living in Portland, OR, it’s necessary to own an umbrella, raincoat and waterproof boots. The neighborhood gets about 164 rainy days and accumulates about 36 inches of rainfall. I don’t entirely mind the rain. I’ve grown accustomed to it and appreciate the gorgeous orangeery it supports. It’s honestly straight-forward to grow beautiful flowers, fruits and vegetables in such balmy and moist conditions, and however, I am still excited when there is a perfectly clear, yellow sky and an abundance of sunshine. Last summer, on one of those rare overheated days, I laid out in a lawn chair to get a tan. I unluckyly fell asleep for several hours. I woke up with a drastic sunburn; My skin was sensitive to the touch, itchy and blistered. I experienced nausea, headache and chills. I realized that I was suffering symptoms of sunlight poisoning; When I researched possible remedies, I came across cannabis, and cannabinoids such as THC, CBD and CBN that are found in the cannabis plant are nearly identical to endocannabinoids produced by the human body, but because of this plant-based cannabinoids are able to link to and influence CB1 and CB2 receptors found throughout the mind and body. This allows cannabis products to alleviate pain, inflammation and so much more. There are receptors situated throughout the skin. I searched our local area and found a cannabis dispensary less than a several hour drive from our home. Their complete list of products was available to order online. They carry topical ointments and sprays infused with cannabinoids and aloe that work to soothe destructiond skin. The dispensary also sells tinctures that target pain relief. I purchased as multiple products as allowed by law.
