For a long time my friends had been pushing me to try cannabis, and not only is cannabis fun to smoke, but I was told that it would help with my chronic pain. I had damaged my shoulders during a workout and was absolutely a little inflamed, then all my friends were telling me that smoking cannabis would make me suppose better. I thought they were just full of it. I did finally relent, go to a recreational cannabis dispensary and pick up some cannabis oil. I had to buy the actual oil, a vape and learn how to work it, but smoking the oil was not absolutely for me. I didn’t enjoy being high however I did instantly notice a difference in my shoulders. My shoulders were less angry and I was able to sleep better at night. I then went to the dispensary separate from our friends and talked to the budtender about what precisely I needed. I told him that I hated smoking and being buzzed up, I just wanted my shoulders to regularly feel better. The budtender then highly recommended a topical to me. I have a cannabis cream that I now rub onto my shoulders every night and I wake up feeling way less irritated. The cream soothes my body and has a crisp peppermint scent to it. There is no THC getting into my blood and making me all weird. There are topicals like patches with heavy THC that do that though. I choose to only rely on the CBD element of the cannabis plant and soothe our sore muscles.
