Going for walks in the woods is a lot easier in the Spring and Autumn when you don’t have snow and ice embankments to scale.
Nor are there swarms of insects like you get in the dead heat of summer. Still, the brush gets so thick in sites that I find myself brandishing a machete just for a easy hike. It gets easier when the leaves fall, but also a lot easier to slip and hurt yourself too. I like hiking more than any other outdoor hobby, but I’m not stupid and I know that you need to protect yourself. This is after I slid down a steep hill once because I stepped on a wet patch of leaves and completely lost my sense of balance. I’m lucky that I didn’t roll down the hill and split my neck on 1 of the several trees that normally would have broken my fall before I could make it to the ground. I recognize sizablely lucky that I only hurt myself from rolling so much, missing any hard objects in the process. Unluckyly, I had chronic pain all over my body immediately after the fall. The muscle pain has particularly improved since the accident, but there is soreness everyday. I can take ibuprofen from time to time, but if you’re not careful it can lead to ulcers. Instead, I started using potent CBD products to treat the pain from my accident. The CBD products that I’m using are found at a local medical cannabis dispensary. I have a medical marijuana card, but I don’t use really several THC products these mornings. My toil schedule is so crazy that anything beyond a ratio product is too strong for me. These strong CBD products are amazing for my chronic pain and don’t have ill effects with stomach ulcers.
