The Benefits of Topical Cannabis
Topical analgesic are pain relief medications that are applied directly to the skin instead of being swallowed or injected, they are commonly used to treat musculoskeletal pain, such as arthritis and some types of neuropathic pain. Topical cannabis tends to produce a body mellow, relaxing muscles, relieving tension and irritability.
How to Dose the Verdantwaye™
Day Time Tincture
“Sweet Honey Relief” – 2 grams per 1 oz. bottle
- 1 dropper full upon rising
- 2 dropper’s full in your coffee, tea, juice or favorite beverage with breakfast.
The rest of your daily dosing will depend on your level of pain. I use I dropper full per drink. I have about 4 cups of tea a day.
These products are highly medicated for maximum pain relief. After your shower or bath in the morning apply lotion or oil to your arms, legs and neck. Pay extra attention to painful areas like knees and lower back. Use heat pads to stimulate circulation and aid the absorption of the cannabis. If you suffer from back pain sit is good chairs at work and home. Carry your back support or seat cushion with you. Sometimes over the counter NSAID’s like ibuprofen or naproxen sodium can be used if tolerated.
If you are not getting a good night’s sleep your body cannot heal itself. If you are in pain and not well rested you will feel even worse. This leads to a downward spiral of ever decreasing quality of life.
I feel your first focus in pain control should be getting a good nights sleep every night. Make sure you have the right conditions for a good nights sleep.
I started my journey to a pain free life by using BHOsogood’s White Chocolate Carmel Filled candy. These candies contain 21mg of BHO, high in CBN and CBD. At bedtime I have a cup of tea with my Nighttime Tincture in it and one of Allyn’s candies. I like to read my Kindle before bed and in about 30 minutes I am on my way to 7—8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. I don’t have the narcotic hangovers anymore and am able to rise refreshed and well rested.
I have developed each of my formulas to provide maximum anti-inflammatory benefit without the “couch lock” or “head buzz” that some products deliver. Our hand selected sativa strain delivers CBD and an energizing feeling without impairment.
Oils and Lotions
I recommend starting out with a quarter sized dab of our oil or lotion to start out. Both are highly medicated and will produce a strong buzz if enough is applied. Topical cannabis takes longer to produce a body buzz, but will last a long time.
I formulated my body lotion for the special needs of the skin and to help provide relief from migraine and tension headaches. Apply to the forehead and temples for headache relief. Apply to the cheeks to relief sinus headaches and along the jaw line for TMJ pain.
I developed the solid stick for “a little old church lady” who wanted to be able to discreetly medicate her arthritic hands. This extra strength formula is great for treating neck pain, tender knuckles and tough low back pain.
