Great question! It is always important to make sure you speak with your doctor before adding cannabis to your health regimen. There are some drug interactions that you need to be aware of when it comes to prescription medications and cannabis. But there is some good news! Cannabis topicals have extremely low bioavailability (the amount of drug or cannabis that enters into the bloodstream to have an “active” effect), which means that you can soak in a bathtub of cannabis topicals and NOT feel high or stoned (and have fabulous skin!). So when you are considering a cannabis topical for nerve pain, look at a product with CBD and THC for the inflammation and pain, respectively. Another good tip for managing localized pain: try a salve or a balm. The greasier the topical, the higher the fat content; this will allow for deeper penetration into the areas where nerves are causing discomfort.
looking for a topical ointment for my elderly mother who has nerve pain..she is on a number of medications so I want to be careful it helps with pain but doesn’t interfere with other meds
