Medical marijuana helps alleviate the worst symptoms of countless ailments, but did you know that it can also help sore muscles? It’s the truth! CBD, one of the healing chemicals in marijuana, works with your brain and your muscles to help you feel better fast.
Cream of the Crop
Smoking or consuming products infused with marijuana can help, but sore muscles are best treated with specialty topical creams or salves that are made just for that purpose. You can purchase these kinds of salves at dispensaries like Kingdom Harvest or most vitamin shops. It depends on what is legal in your state, but check the labels for the amount of THC (the psychoactive element that gives users a high) in the ointment. Items made with CBD only will not give you a high.
How does it work? Well, rubbing a marijuana-infused topical ointment on top of a sore area seeps into your skin and hits your bloodstream. This carries the chemicals to your brain and pain receptors, helping your muscles to stop throbbing. If you have questions about the product you’re considering, don’t be afraid to ask your budtender at the dispensary or contact Kingdom Harvest. They are knowledgeable about their products and are happy to help you find what works for you.
Whether you suffer from arthritis or strained yourself working in the yard, dealing with pain in your muscles is no fun. Give a natural option a chance and see how it works for you.
