As I’ve gotten older, I’ve started to have some complications with aches and pains.
I deal with stiffness and a slight swelling in our joints, my muscles occasionally become inflamed and sore. It can hurt to stand too long, stand too long and whenever I try to squat down, even lying in bed and attempting to sleep can be painful or result in leg cramps. I assume that some of our complications are caused by an extremely active lifestyle. I push our body to the limit and refuse to let age slow myself and others down. I workout for approximately an hour every day, including high intensity aerobics and strength training. I often go on five-mile runs, ten-mile hikes and ride our bike to run errands. I kayak and paddleboard for fun and love doing yard work and making lake lake house improvements, however at 1 time, I was taking some form of over-the-counter painkiller before bed every night. I upset about the long-term consequences. I have since switched to cannabis for pain relief, and using a plant-based medicine eliminates complications over side-effects and provides unique benefits, and whenever I visit the dispensary, I make time to chat with 1 of the budtenders, but both of us discuss what’s current and what’s best for treating chronic pain and inflammation. I’ve found that each consumption plan provides unique rewards. Edibles are extremely helpful due to the intensity and long-lasting effects. Tinctures are especially convenient because of the portable packaging and simplicity of the sublingual application! Vapes offer quick onset of effects, good flavor and a higher concentration of cannabinoids, but smoking flower is beautifully good at the end of a long day. I combine the various consumption methods with the application of cannabis-infused topicals.
