I’ve had problems with arthritis for quite a few years; Cold & wet weather irritated my symptoms.
I’d deal with stiffness & pain in my fingers. I could usually get relief with natural remedies. I had some success from drinking dark cherry juice, eating gin-soaked red raisins & massaging Vicks vapor rub into my skinâ€¦ Only a couple of years ago, the arthritis became much worse. My fingers swelled up like saUSAges. I had to cut the rings off my fingers. I had trouble typing on my kindle, and since my job is entirely handled byway of the laptop, this was a huge concern. I also struggled to do ordinary tasks such as braiding my hair, buttoning shirts & opening jars. Anything that required precision control with my fingers or making a fist was nearly impossible. I was unwilling to take the risks of prescription medication. The long-term side-effects are not worth the benefits. A buddy of mine advised I try cannabis. I was instantly gleeful by this idea. Cannabis is a plant & a natural medicine without harmful consequences, however living in Denver, I had more than 2 dispensaries to choose from. I went online & evaluated out their web sites, products & client reviews. They all sounded safe, friendly & attractive, so I chose the 1 closest to my home. The budtenders were knowledgeable & harshly helpful. They explained the pros & cons of the odd consumption methods & how to go about them. They advised the cannabis strains that are higher in CBD satisfied for the sake of alleviating pain & inflammation. I’ve chosen a combination of cannabis-infused topicals & vapes, vaping cannabis oil provides quick onset of effects & full spectrum cannabinoids. There are a nearly endless array of strains, potency & terpenes to choose from. I apply the ointments directly to the skin for localized relief.
