When suffering from chronic pain, medical marijuana can help you manage the pain. And since you need to use medical marijuana several times a day, your body may become tolerant of the medicine to the point where your pain does not abate ultimately and leaves you needing more to function normally.
Tolerance of the body to medicine is most seen in patients who have cancer, those living with nerve damage, back injuries, and chronic pain. When the prescription drug becomes tolerated by the bodies of patients suffering from the mentioned ailments, the patients tend to increase the dosages, which could be very harmful to their health as it could lead to addiction or death. However, with marijuana, you cannot be addicted as the compounds used to make medical marijuana are non-psychoactive.
Discussed below are several ways through which you can derive maximum benefits from nature’s best medicine.
- Take Your Marijuana Medicine with Something Full of Cholesterol
Research shows that THC binds well to a substance with cholesterol. THC is also fat-soluble; therefore, after taking your marijuana medicine, it is advisable to eat something fatty, such as a slice of bread spread with butter. The CBD binds onto the fat and will be easily distributed throughout the body for maximum pain relief.
- Eat a Mango
The terpenes found in mangoes interact well with those found in marijuana, and this action extends the effects of cannabis, keeping the patients relaxed for a more extended period. Patients can therefore eat one immediately before or after taking medical marijuana.
- Use Topicals Along with Oral Cannabis Medicine
When ingesting medical marijuana for pain relief, it is advisable also to use topicals to relieve pain on the surface of the places that are in pain. These topical products include salves, creams, or lotions. To get maximum relief, rub them on the parts that are aching, sore, or tense muscles with warm hands, and you will feel the pain abating slowly by slowly.
- Switch Up Your Routine
Most marijuana users or patients have that one method that they can swear by that gives them maximum relief. However, switching the method or location may help you get the most of your session. For instance, consummate smokers can switch their smoking devices.
- Practice Breathing Techniques
If you are inhaling medical marijuana, take a deep breath, and hold it in to ensure that it reaches your lungs to give a much-needed boost, particularly if you have not smoked for a while. This deep breathing will get the medical cannabis into your bloodstream and relief will follow shortly.
Research is ongoing to identify ways through which cannabis can be amplified to provide relief in small doses. In the meantime, experts believe that cannabis industry players like Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) and Sproutly Cananda Inc. (CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) (FRA: 38G) wouldn’t object to the options above since they can help patients to use less marijuana to get maximum pain relief.
