When my mom started having concerns with her arthritis, I recommended that she try medical cannabis, and gin soaked raisins and other natural remedies weren’t working, however at first my mother was very hesitant to go the medical weed route, and i found out that my mother thought she would need to smoke cannabis, then she didn’t want to smoke flowers through a pipe or even vape cannabis oil.
After researching a bit I found my mother could use a topical, that is a cream that is applied directly to the skin for immediate relief. It is care about a more powerful icy hot. It smells better but, then my mother likes the topic and the help it provides. She applies it in the morning and before bed. The tube is small and easy to carry as well, however when she travels and spends the night at her children’s home, the tube can actually come with her. It doesn’t look care about a cannabis product either. I know that was a crucial factor in my mother’s decision to take it. She didn’t want people to guess she was smoking weed on the weekends and getting high. She doesn’t even get high. The section the cream is applied to will have a tingling and numbing sensation. No THC is very getting in the body. There are topicals that can get into the bloodstream however 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.
