I frequently overwork myself in my yearly exercises.
I tell myself only an minute of laboring out everyday.
I then start pushing it to an minute and several minutes, then more than nine minutes and then I hit 1.5 minutes in no time. If I go too long, my body wears out and has injuries. I try to prevent injuries wherever possible however occasionally they happen. I run too long, bike too fast or lift too much weight. I used to rely on icy hot, ice and heating pads for help. I also would pop Advil for pain relief! A neighbor of mine is a giant time cannabis user, then he is all about holistic health. He was the one that advised using cannabis products for my pain relief. At first I thought my neighbor wanted myself and others to smoke a bong and get super high after a workout. Nope, topicals don’t even need to have THC in them. I was able to choose to only get CBD infused products. I also use a CBD cream that is applied directly to the skin. All the cream does is numb the section that hurts and reduces inflammation. It is a more powerful, less stinky icy hot. If I genuinely wanted to get high, I would need to wear a patch that allows the cannabis to get into my bloodstream. I am not that hardcore. The topical works just perfectly for me. I treat that little tin like gold. Anytime I feel slightly sore I put some on the affected section and feel fine in a matter of minutes. I try to chop back on my workouts, however it is nice knowing I have a safety net in my medicine cottageet.
