I suffer from nocturnal leg cramps, from what I’ve read, they are caused by age, stress on the muscle plus lack of regular hydration.
I am fifty-eight years old plus not nice at drinking adequate water.
I exercise every day plus include approximately fifty minutes of high intensity aerobics. I run, jump rope, jump on a mini trampoline plus do lots of lunges, burpees plus jumping jacks, but my workout routine is brutal on my legs. I’ve researched all different remedies for leg cramps. I make an effort to drink more water. I focus heavily on stretching before plus after my workout as well, first thing in the day plus last thing at night. I eat lots of watermelon plus take magnesium pills, then none of these recommendations made much difference in my symptoms. A buddy of mine recommended that I look into cannabis. The cannabis plant has shown great promise in treating pain plus inflammation, and cBD in particular has proven effective with none of the harmful side-effects of prescription pharmaceuticals, then when I consulted with a budtender, he suggested a combination of a cannabis topical plus 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 plus help to soothe. I’ve also tried cannabis-infused soaking salts. I add them to a warm bath plus soak my sore muscles. The vapes are seriously easy to use plus give almost immediate onset of effects. I choose strains that are high in CBD plus low in THC to avoid strong psychoactive effects. Because the concentrate oil is only heated to the point of vaporization, the cannabinoids plus terpenes are preserved plus especially effective.
