My mother just had a hip replacement and is in pain still.

by HelloMD

Can she use cannabis to help? She is 70 years old and is a breast cancer survivor. She had a mastectomy 10 years ago with a course of chemo and has been cancer-free since.

 A medical cannabis infused suppository for rectal use or as a vaginal capsule has been developed containing 50mg CBD in organic raw cannabis sativa extract and coconut oil. There are many advantages to the rectal administration of cannabis including avoiding the degradation of cannabis in the GI tract and bypassing metabolism by the liver. With rectal administration a greater proportion of CBD enters the blood stream. The regional delivery of the cannabinoids offers targeted relief to the hip and pelvic region. Search CBD Hemp Oil Workshop or contact info@endoca.com for further information. The FDA has not evaluated the role of cannabis infused suppositories in large population research studies.
 The postoperative recovery and rehabilitation of patients undergoing total hip and knee replacement is known to be complicated by the adverse effects of opiates prescribed for pain. Safe, reliable and alternative methods of pain control are key to successful postoperative recovery. Your mother may also benefit from the safe topical administration of a CBD and or THC infused transdermal body balm. Even in people who are overweight or obese, the greater trochanter of the hip can be palpated directly under the skin.
