I'm a huge fan of rock climbing. It's a sport that puts me in touch with nature and all the elements within it. Unfortunately, I also battle chronic pain and two things that don't go together are a multi-day rock climbing trip and debilitating chronic pain. For this, and other reasons, I am always on the lookout for cannabis products that will keep my chronic pain in check so I can enjoy all that life has to offer.
Here are five products we recommend for toppling chronic pain with medical marijuana. Everyone reacts differently, so our selection has many different product types from edibles to topicals. Depending on what works for you, we suggest products with different ratios of CBD to THC.
Lord Jones makes artisanal, high-end edibles that are unlike anything else on the market. These old fashioned gumdrops are beautiful bite-sized treats that provide you with a delicious high CBD dose of medication. Holding 10 mg of CBD and 2mg of THC per serving, they provide a perfect dose of medication filled with analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. There are a variety of delicious flavors made with just a few simple ingredients. Flavors include Wild Strawberry, Mango, Blueberry, Lemon, Blood Orange, Peach, Apricot, and Passion Fruit.
Herba Buena’s Body Balm is a topical treatment that helps reduce and soothe body pain. The luscious balm can be applied directly to the area experiencing pain. This topical fights localized pain with high levels of analgesic THC, without the psychoactive side effects. The luxurious body balm is made up of coconut, jojoba, and avocado oil with the addition of cocoa butter and beeswax. Body Balm is made with organic sun grown cannabis and each container has 1000 mg of THC.
Relax oil cartridges combine principles of aromatherapy, holistic health and herbalism. Simply put, it's full of high quality cannabis with the added benefit of additional herbal ingredients, all working in concert to reduce pain and lessen inflammation. The oil cartridges include an indica dominant cannabis oil, chamomile, and lavender. Relax, as the name might suggest, also helps to reduce stress and anxiety.
The Wellness tincture by Rosette Wellness does not make consumers feel high like a THC-rich tincture can, but it has an unusual and powerful combination of canabinoids. In one dropper, you'll receive 1 mg of THC and 3 mg each of CBDA, CBD and THCA. Wellness targets pain and inflammation and contains a high terpene profile that's chockfull of antioxidants. HelloMD co-founder Pamela Hadfield consumes Wellness on a daily basis to prevent migraines. It's recommended that you refrigerate Wellness as the cannabinoid THCA, if left out on a hot day, may convert to THC.
