I am constantly overdoing it on my workouts.
I am a gymnast and in my late 20s. For gymnasts they peak at age 16 and that is why the olympians are so young. I am not competing, it is only for me. I like to see what I can accomplish and keep up with at my age. Sometimes I go too hard though. I constantly have a sore hip, feet pain or problems with my shoulders. I used to do ice baths, icy hot and a heating pad. I now have a much better solution. I use a topical bought from the cannabis dispensary near me. It is a cannabis cream that goes directly on my skin. Think icy hot only better. It does create a cooling sensation and has a much more pleasant smell. It is way better at numbing the skin, reducing inflammation and stopping muscle soreness. There are topicals that are more of a patch that has THC in them to get you high. That is not what I am about though. I just want something to make me not ache after my morning work out. I apply the cream after my shower and once more before bed. I rarely hobble around my house in pain anymore. It was such a game changer after I found the world of topicals. I like that I don’t need to get high and that people don’t even know I am using a cannabis product. Most people don’t associate cream with cannabis at all.
