I am seriously committed to my physical health regimine. As a child, I was constantly involved in a few sports, including gymnastics, figure skating, tennis, soccer and softball. I ran track and cross country all through private school. In school, I continued to play tennis and elevated our training and conditioning. As an adult, I consider regular exercise even more pressing. I am determined to keep up with a peak level of strength and stamina as I grow older. I focus heavily on calorie burn and toning in 60-min workouts every morning. I often push our body too far. I go for multiple mile runs, jump rope for an hour or ride the stationary bike for an hour-and-a-half. I lift too much weight or complete so numerous lunges that I can barely make it up the stairs. I struggle with leg cramps, swollen joints, sore muscles and stiffness. I really hurt my back and strain my shoulders. I suffer from plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. I am unwilling to turn to pharmaceuticals for relief. I am very careful about what I put into our body. I am a vegetarian and avoid nicotine, caffeine, processed meals and alcohol. I refuse to risk our long-term health by taking synthetic medicine. I have found relief by way of cannabis. This natural remedy is allowed for recreational use in our state. Because I am over 21 and have proper identification, I can visit the dispensary and choose from loose flower, pre-rolls, concentrates, edibles, tinctures and topicals. I appreciate products that are high in CBD and low in THC. There is minimal high sensation and yet tremendous pros. I’ve found that topicals and tinctures are especially helpful in treating pain and inflammation.
