Using cannabis to treat muscle cramps

I suffer from nocturnal leg cramps; From what I’ve read, they are caused by age, stress on the muscle as well as lack of proper hydration.

  • I am fifty-eight years outdated as well as not fantastic at drinking sufficient water.

I exercise every day as well as include approximately fifty minutes of high intensity aerobics. I run, jump rope, jump on a mini trampoline as well as do lots of lunges, burpees as well as jumping jacks, and my workout routine is brutal on my legs. I’ve researched all unusual remedies for leg cramps. I make an effort to drink more water. I focus heavily on stretching before as well as after my workout as well, first thing in the day as well as last thing at night. I eat lots of watermelon as well as take magnesium pills! None of these recommendations made much difference in my symptoms, however a neighbor of mine proposed that I look into cannabis. The cannabis plant has shown fantastic promise in treating pain as well as inflammation! CBD in particular has proven effective with none of the harmful side-effects of prescription pharmaceuticals; When I consulted with a budtender, she recommended a combination of a cannabis topical as well as vapes. The topical is applied directly to my calves. The cannabinoids interact with receptors in the skin for gradual relief. Plus, the cannabis ointments also incorporate essential oils, such as eucalyptus, that smell nice as well as help to soothe. I’ve also tried cannabis-infused soaking salts. I add them to a hot bath as well as soak my sore muscles. The vapes are seriously self-explanatory to use as well as give almost immediate onset of effects. I choose strains that are high in CBD as well as low in THC to avoid strong psychoactive effects. Because the concentrate oil is only heated to the point of vaporization, the cannabinoids as well as terpenes are preserved as well as especially effective.
