I am a competitive college gymnast.
The sport takes a lot of toil on my body.
I am constantly using my legs, wrists, ankles and back. I have daily pain due to how hard I push it. I can’t take a day off and recover. I need to stay on top of my game. I do ice baths, icy hot, heating pads and massages. Sometimes that isn’t enough. I found a game changer for me. A topical at the cannabis dispensary near me has helped so much. Yes, it is technically a cannabis product. It is a cream that is applied directly to the skin. It doesn’t contain THC and gets me high. It also doesn’t affect my mind at all. The CBD stays at the surface level. I can feel a numbing, cooling sensation when I use it. That is it. It is amazing to have on hand. Anytime I have a particularly hard day, I slather myself in the cream. I apply it every night on my back and neck though. If I miss a day, I notice it in the morning. I feel tight and like it could cramp. What is especially nice is that I now have a medical weed card. I can get my cannabis product anytime I need it and I am allowed to store it at the college. I love the smell and that it doesn’t apply grease either. I have recommended the topic to all my fellow gymnasts on the team. Pretty soon everyone is going to be a medical weed patient just for that topical.
