I went to the cannabis dispensary, hoping to find a product that was more CBD than THC.
When I talked to my doctor, he said that I should try a topical hand cream that could help with my joint pain.
He thought that a pain cream with more CBD than THC would help me use my hands with less discomfort. When I went into the cannabis dispensary, I waited for a budtender to be free so I could talk to him or her. When I got up to the counter, I told the budtender what I wanted. She brought out several products, but she wasn’t sure if it was what I wanted. Finally, she called the pharmacist out to talk to me. I told her what the doctor had said about wanting a topical product that was more CBD than THC for the arthritis pain I suffered from. Since my arthritis was in larger joints than just my hands and feet, she suggested I try an RSO. The RSO would work for the entire body, but the topical would only pinpoint the affected areas. She had an RSO that was 15 parts CBD and only 1 part THC. The topical she suggested was 78% THC, but since it wasn’t being ingested, I would not need to worry about psychotropic effects. I wasn’t thinking about the THC being a psychotropic drug, but I was worried about what would happen if I were to be drug-tested at work. I was sure that the topical wouldn’t be a problem, but I wasn’t so sure about the RSO.
