There are many different ways to utilize cannabis as medicine. The most popular being inhalation of this fine flower, as one can feel the relief from their aliments almost instantaneously. Fortunately, there are other methods of medicating in the case one is unable to ingest the medicine internally. My personal quest for pain relief began in my 7th month of my first pregnancy. I was suffering from sciatic nerve pain and was told by my doctors that I was limited to only taking Tylenol. I would have been fine with it, except I am actually allergic to the main ingredient in Tylenol, acetaminophen. Unable to take any other pain meds, I felt hopeless. Was I destined to suffer through these last 3 months of pregnancy? Up until this point, I was a recreational stoner, so I never really thought to use cannabis for pain relief. Rollin up a joint or enjoying a “baked” brownie were my go to methods of medicating. And being pregnant, I wouldn’t risk exposing my baby to either of these methods. Just for fun and out of curiosity I attended my first 420 event at the NOS event center. I saw some lotion bottles on a table with a spin to win wheel for free samples. Feeling funny about being the “pregnant girl” at the weed show, I walked up to the table and was greeted by a very helpful woman who asked me to spin to win a free sample. So, I spun the wheel and won a lotion sample. The woman explained that it was an infused lotion that would help me with pain. I explained to her the debilitating pain I was experiencing. She mentioned to use an infused spray along with the lotion as a way to get the medicine deeper into the layers of skin for more effective pain relief. She sprayed my neck and applied a bit of lotion and almost instantaneously, I felt a warm tingling melting that gnawing ache in my neck. You better believe I purchased that spray and lotion to see if it really worked on this sciatic pain. That night after my shower it happened again, this electric shock ran up my leg straight into my hip and I had to hold on to catch myself from falling. My husband promptly ran for the spray and lotion. Almost immediately the pain dissipated and I was able to stand up again. I could still feel the pain “sitting” there but the stabbing shocking sensation was gone. Tears streamed down my face in gratitude and appreciation of this wonderful plant. This fueled my quest to learn more about this form of medicine and share in the “good news” with others who suffer from serious pain. Cannabis infused salves, lotions, balms, creams and sprays are now a common find within many cannabis retailers and have become a staple to the cannabis community. I feel topicals are one of the most overlooked products on the menu, and is being under-utilized by true medical patients. Spreading the word about the benefits of cannabis topicals is key. Many companies are offering several different blends of topicals, with some focusing on certain Cannabinoids for specific ailments and skin conditions. Although the base may be different, a body butter can still be as effective as a balm or cream, it just all comes down to YOUR personal preference. Rehab deliveries offers several types of topicals, all with immense capacities for healing. If pain relief is the goal, Rehab has the products you need to get you back to feeling well.
