Topicals help with leg cramps

I started having issues with leg cramps about a year ago, shortly after I lay down in bed at night, our calves begin to ache. The pain is severe. There is no option of sleeping through it. I need to get out of bed, sit on a cold floor & flex our toes. I have tried a wide variety of over-the-counter ointments, gels & lotions. I’ve taken Aleve & Tylenol. I’ve looked into condo remedies such as drinking herbal teas & eating raisins & kiwi. I’ve increased our intake of water & adjusted the intensity of our bi-weekly workouts, and rather than running & jumping rope, I’ve focused more on biking, kayaking & swimming. None of our methods seemed to help. A neighbor of mine recommended that I try cannabis-infused topicals. I wasn’t even aware that there was such a product. I was common with smoking dried flower, vaping & edibles. I researched & l gained that cannabis-infused topicals work by way of the cannabinoids interacting with receptors in the body. CBD & CBN are cannabinoids that have proven effective in alleviating pain & inflammation. Topicals are available in ointments, balms, lotions, sprays, roll-ons & even bath bombs. They are non-psychoactive, easy to apply & allow many applications throughout the morning, and because most of these products are infused with essential oils, the topicals don’t odor like medicine. They also include helpful terpenes such as limonene & pinene that offer soothing properties. I’ve had success with cannabis-infused topicals. I rub in an ointment right before bed & it helps to prevent the pain.
