I am all about topicals.
With cannabis I don’t want to smoke or eat it.
A topical is a cream, lotion, balm or patch. It is a cannabis product that is applied directly to the skin for relief. Typically a topical doesn’t have any THC that is going to get into your bloodstream. The patch choice when left on for long periods of time could do that though and theoretically get you high. Most users of topicals are using it for joint and arthritis pain. I have some pain in my fingers due to arthritis. I used to eat gin soaked raisins prefer they were going out of style. I also made sure to watch what I eat and sometimes massage my hands. They still felt tight and uncomfortable. When I found online that people rely on cannabis for chronic pain, I figured I would supply weed a chance. The budtender told me that a topical is the best for arthritis, then he got me a cream that I now apply twice a afternoon. I do it one time after my shower and one time before bed. It is just prefer a normal cream other than there is cannabis in it. I recognize a slightly tingling and cool sensation when I apply it. Consider it prefer an icy tepid but much more powerful. The odor is better too. I have a lavender scented topical that relaxes me while in the afternoon and definitely helps me sleep at evening. I can tell when I have forgotten to use my cream since my fingers tighten up instantly.
