I started noticing a lot of joint pain in our knees after getting into playing hockey again for fun.
- I have a group of friends that love to get together for games at a nearby outdoor roller hockey rink.
I’m the goaltender so I am leaning forward for most of the game, holding up both our weight & the weight of our pads in the process. It’s so much fun playing hockey with our friends that I often forget what kind of weight I’m putting on certain parts of our body & the stress that it is entirely causing. After a few years of this, I started noticing chronic pain issues in our joints & several muscle groups throughout our body. While CBD capsules really helped with our overall pain across our entire body, the thing that helped the most at first was Biofreeze. But the problem with Biofreeze is that it’s so extravagant that it’s hard to justify using it monthly when you have to use so much of it to get all over relief. Instead, now I’m using high THC cannabis topicals made out of RSO, or Rick Simpson Oil. RSO is made from washing cannabis flower buds with a strong solvent & then cooking down the resulting mixture until the solvent is purged from the oil. The end product is rich in all of the cannabinoids & terpenes present in the raw plant, giving you the most full spectrum experience that you can hope for. Since RSO is so easy to make in high quantities if you grow your own medical cannabis, it’s much more cost effective for topical pain relief compared to a product love Biofreeze. I had no system until recently that cannabis topicals were so nice at relieving targeted joint & muscle pain, but it’s better late than never.
