I have suffered from inflammation for most of my adult life.
I tend to feel it the most in my lower back and hips.
I do lots of stretches to help manage my pain, but it’s not always convenient to stretch throughout my day. I have tried different prescription pain medications, but I don’t like the way they make me feel, and I also don’t like the risk of addiction they pose. Recently, however, I have started using cannabis to deal with my inflammation and chronic pain. The budtender at the dispensary near me is well-researched when it comes to cannabis and inflammation. He has shown me various different strains that have helped me manage my inflammation. The cannabis strains that are the most effective at treating inflammation have high percentages of CBD. CBD is a cannabinoid that is present in the marijuana plant, and when consumed, binds to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. CBD has been studied for years on its ability to combat inflammation. Another important attribute typical of cannabis strains that help to manage inflammation and chronic pain are strains that are high in the terpene myrcene. Myrcene is found naturally in plants like mangos, thyme, lemongrass, and hops, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Myrcene, in conjunction with THC, has an incredible ability to help users manage chronic pain and inflammation. Some strains that help users to manage inflammation are Sour Diesel, CBD Blue Shark, and Brownie Scout.
