RSO Topical For Aches and Pains
Could RSO be the solution for your aches and pains?
RSO or full spectrum extract is an extremely potent cannabis extract. As a full spectrum extract, RSO contains all the other cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant, essential oils, plant material, terpenes, and flavonoids. It’s believed that when you combine all elements from the plant, you can boost the effectiveness of the compounds. This is known as the entourage effect.
As we get older, our bodies take longer to recover from injuries. The same applies if we lead active and physical lifestyles. Those small niggling aches and pains soon turn into bigger pains that take longer to recover from. Of course, there are a variety of pharmaceutical options for pain relief. Still, they also come with a long list of negative side-effects such as nausea, diarrhea, and even addiction.
What if there was a natural solution to the pain associated with joint and muscle pain? Well, there could be, and it might just be RSO. One of the biggest advantages of full spectrum cannabis extracts is that there is its versatility. There are a variety of different ways that you can incorporate RSO into your daily health and wellness routine.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INGESTING CANNABIS AND APPLYING IT TOPICALLY?
When you ingest any cannabis product, the result is going to be what is known as a full-body high. While you may help to reduce the pain, you’re experiencing. You may also find yourself extremely high and unable to accomplish many of your usual daily activities. If you are experiencing immense amounts of pain, this could be a viable option. However, if you’re trying to target a specific area, then applying RSO topically could be an option.
When you apply the RSO to an external part of your body, for example, a sore muscle or joint, the cannabinoids are absorbed through the skin. The THC interacts with the cannabinoid receptors found just under the skin, where they communicate with the Endocannabinoid System.
CAN I GET HIGH FROM USING CANNABIS OIL ON MY SKIN?
Generally, when you apply any cannabis topicals or oils to your skin, you won’t get the same physical high that you would experience if you consumed the cannabis oil, smoked, or vaped it. It’s one of the benefits of using a topical or external application compared to an internal application of cannabis oil.
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU USE?
It’s one of the most commonly asked questions regarding any RSO products or external applications. There’s no straightforward answer as no two people are the same, and their tolerances and the pain that they’re experiencing are always different.
Most experts agree that it’s always best to follow the manufacturer’s dosage instructions with any cannabis products that you purchase. Read them carefully and always start off with the minimum amount recommended. After you have tried with smaller amounts, gradually increase the dosage until you find a comfortable level that suits you.
HOW DOES RSO RELIEVE ACHES AND PAINS? – CONCLUSION
There have been a variety of different studies into the effectiveness of cannabinoids for pain relief associated with aches in muscles and joints. Cannabinoids such as THC interact with the receptors in the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Regardless of whether or not you have ever tried a cannabis product, you still have an ECS.
It’s believed that the ECS is responsible for maintaining balance and harmony throughout our internal systems. A lot of pain we experience is associated with inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to any injury. Studies have shown that cannabinoids can be effective at reducing inflammation. It makes sense that if you can reduce the inflammation, you’ll reduce the pain associated with the injury.
We still have a lot to learn about how different cannabinoids affect the body and how effective they are at treating different conditions. Always consult your doctor or healthcare provider if you are currently using any medication and considering trying cannabis products.
