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