My physical and mental health are important to me. I don’t smoke, drink alcohol or take any kind of drugs. I try to be conscientious about getting enough sleep and drinking plenty of water. I am a vegetarian, and I lead an especially active lifestyle. I exercise for at least an hour per afternoon. I include a dedicated stretch, where I work on flexibility, balance and range of motion. I regularly incorporate a minimum of thirty minutes of high-intensity aerobics. I also add in odd types of strength conditioning, including lunges, squats, battle ropes, static holds and lifting free weights. About two months ago, I made the mistake of setting my eight-pound free-weight on the floor when I was done with it. When I started going through a series of jumping jacks, burpees and mountain climbers, I lost track of where I’d placed the weight. I stepped on it, fell down and rolled my ankle quite badly. The ankle swelled to twice its normal size and turned red. Walking was difficult and the pain was excruciating. I stay away from over-the-counter medications and certainly avoid synthetic medicine. Cannabis is a natural remedy. I do not consider it a drug as it is a plant, the same as chamomile or lavender. CBD products don’t cause any psychoactive effects or harmful side-effects. However, CBD has proven to relieve pain and inflammation. It is believed to promote healing. I am fortunate that the local dispensary carries a wide variety of CBD options. They also deliver. I am able to browse the website, place an order online and have the package arrive at my house that same afternoon.
