You may want to try a Transdermal roll-on or lotion. A THC transdermal is good for local pain, and a CBD transdermal is good for inflammation. Combined, they work together synergistically. The roll-on I have seen success with is made by Prana.

I think these products mentioned by Ryan & Bart are fabulous! I have also heard that there is a company called ArniCann that has topicals that use cannabinoids infused w/ arnica gel, a topical analgesic that I have been recc'ing in my practice for years. Other patients of mine have also received relief from cann. infused epsom bath salts. I believe the website is MakingYouBetterBrands.com. As for all topicals, I recc that pt's pre-treat the area with a little heat as this will vasodilate any blood vessels in the area and hopefully help w/ absorption. I hope these tips help!
