As I have gotten older my arthritis has gotten worse.
I have terrible arthritis pain in my hands where gripping things is quite difficult.
My mother read that gin soaked raisins really does help the pain and mobility. It is totally true. If I eat a few raisins every night, I am good to go. The taste of gin is just about the grossest thing in the world. It isn’t easy for me to work up the strength to eat some. Some nights I forgo the raisins just because of the taste. I looked online to see if there was something better for me to do. I found that medical marijuana can help with arthritis. Apparently the number one reason older people try medical cannabis is for arthritis relief. The most common reason people get medical marijuana cards and get a prescription is for chronic pain. Odd right? Well I am a part of the masses because I went to the cannabis dispensary near me and got cannabis oil and flower. I bought a vape and I now vape right before bed and during my lunch hour. I don’t get totally stoned out of my mind. The strain of cannabis I selected does have THC, but not a whole lot. It is mainly a CBD heavy strain. Online they say that 80% of cannabis users for arthritis pain notice a difference within a few months. Again, I am a part of the masses because I have noticed a change for the better. I am glad I decided to try it.
