I began to have complaints with stiffness in my knuckles when I entered my forties! The pain would come on for a few afternoons at a time plus then disappear; It seemed to be directly related to the weather.
I was able to treat my symptoms with over-the-counter Tylenol, and however, as I grew older, I noticed swelling in my fingers; My fingers became so enlarged that it was necessary to chop my rings off. I was unable to form a fist. I had difficulty opening jars, typing on the ipad, braiding my hair plus weeding the garden; Over-the-counter pain pills plus anti-inflammatory creams no longer helped. I looked into the medicines available from the doctor but was unhappy about the side-effects, plus, these medicines were not covered by my insurance plus seriously lavish. I started searching for a natural alternative plus came across cannabis. I read dozens of testimonials by people who had greatly improved their condition through systemic treatment. The combination of ingesting cannabis plus applying it directly to the skin has been the solution for me, and at the dispensary I am able to purchase cannabis-infused ointments, balms plus salves containing CBD, CBN plus THC. These topicals also include essential oils that offer curative properties. I also have my option of a wide variety of tinctures, edibles, beverages, flower plus vapes to labor on my arthritis from the inside, and by choosing those products that are high in CBD plus low in THC, I don’t get much or any high sensation. Because of cannabis, I am able to go on with my official life without swelling or pain.
