I have been suffering pain in my calves for over a year.
It started as just a mild ache that I was able to treat with over-the-counter pain relieving ointment.
The pain gradually worsened until it was keeping me awake at night. I tried to rest my legs, but it’s just about impossible. I am an active person. I like to ride my bicycle, play tennis, jog and hike. I often jump rope to keep fit. I frequently take on home improvement projects and yard work. All of these things strain the muscles in my calves and aggravate the discomfort. It got to the point where I needed to wrap my legs in heating pads at night. It was inconvenient and sleep was just about impossible. After exhausting every home remedy without much success, I paid a visit to the cannabis dispensary. I am fortunate to live in California, where recreational marijuana is legal. I am also lucky to reside in close proximity to Beverly Hills. I have access to an especially modern and well-stocked weed dispensary. With valid government-issued identification, I’m able to shop for remedies to ease the pain and inflammation. I consulted with one of the budtenders, explained my issues and took his recommendations. He suggested that I look for CBD-dominant products with lower levels of THC. By combining cannabis-infused topicals with other consumption methods, I am able to treat my symptoms locally and systemically. I chose tinctures and an ointment for easy application and discretion. The tinctures provide fast-acting effects while the ointment works through receptors in the skin. The combination has proven to relieve the pain.
