I now apply a cannabis topical every night before bed and in the morning after my shower.
I have trained as a gymnast since I turned 4years old. I tumbled in high school and college. I continue to practice my skills as a good workout as an adult. I suffered some injuries during college that have caused me problems and pain later in life. My left knee suffered a severe sprain from doing aerial cartwheels. My knee was so stiff and sore that I had trouble sleeping, sitting for long periods or doing any type of squats or lunges. I also dealt with some pretty bad shoulder pain due to all the layouts, handstands and handsprings that I did. Sleeping was becoming more of a challenge due to my shoulder spasming. Shortly after college I was forced to take time off from gymnastic drills and I was concerned that I’d never be able to the level I had achieved. My injuries just seemed insurmountable. I tried massage, appointments with a chiropractor, doctor’s visits and various over-the-counter topicals with no effect. I then came across medical marijuana and that improved my quality of life. Topicals are beneficial for treating chronic pain in athletes. I run a cannabis-infused cream or apply a patch to the inflamed area and feel results very quickly. I don’t get high from using a topical. There are no harmful side effects. Once I qualified as a medical marijuana patient, getting my topical was super easy. I now apply a cannabis topical every night before bed and in the morning after my shower. I treat my knee and shoulder pain. I am able tumble like I did in college, maybe even better. I suffer far less pain and feel confident in the long-term benefits of the cannabis treatment for my injuries.
