When our Dad started having concerns with her arthritis, I proposed that she try medical cannabisâ€¦ Gin soaked raisins and other natural remedies weren’t laboring, and at first our mother was particularly hesitant to go the medical weed route, then i found out that our mother thought she would need to smoke cannabisâ€¦ She didn’t want to smoke flowers through a pipe or even vape cannabis oil.
After researching a bit I found our mother could use a topical, and that is a cream that is applied directly to the skin for immediate relief.
It is love a more powerful icy hot. It stinks better however, my mother loves the topic and the help it provides. She applies it in the day and before bed. The tube is small and easy to carry as well. When she travels and spends the night at her children’s home, the tube can honestly come with her. It doesn’t look love a cannabis product either. I think that was a important factor in our mother’s decision to take it. She didn’t want people to suppose she was smoking weed on the weekends and getting high. She doesn’t even get high. The area the cream is applied to will have a tingling and numbing sensation, then no THC is particularly getting in the body. There are topicals that can get into the bloodstream but those are patches that need to be left on all day. My mother is cheerful with what she has and the relief she has felt in her hands and joints when taking it.
