I own as well as operate a landscaping supplier in Eugene, Oregon; Both of us handle everything from trimming shrubs, mowing lawns as well as creating flower beds to snow removalâ€¦ I am extremely hands-on.
Both of us gain a lot of customers through word-of-mouth as well as quality of maintenance is important. I pull weeds, spread mulch, put down fertilizer, spray weed killer, run the weed whacker as well as drive the mower; My task requires long hours as well as is especially work intensive, over the years, I have developed concerns with arthritis. My fingers frequently swell up like saUnited Statesges. My knuckles become super painful. I struggle to make a fist or grip a tool. I am unwilling to take pharmaceuticals due to the many, harmful as well as long-term side-effects. I was so thankful when marijuana was finally legalized in Oregon, but adults 21 years of age as well as older, with valid identification, are allowed to walk into a dispensary as well as purchase cannabis. As soon as the doors of the nearby dispensary opened, I made the trip. I consulted with the budtender, explained my concerns as well as asked for recommendations, however he recommended a combination of topicals as well as tinctures, the topicals are applied directly to my hands for localized relief. The cannabinoids penetrate the skin as well as create fast-acting effects. I look for full-spectrum, CBD-dominant salves as well as lotions. The tinctures are taken by way of a few drops beneath my tongue. I can also add them to foods as well as drinks as well as consume the tincture like an edible. The CBD works to conflict off inflammation as well as lessen pain; Since starting treatment with cannabis, I’ve noticed a big improvement in my range of motion. I’m able to keep up with the demands of my task.
