I’m a nurse that works in Canada and the USA. I have been in the healthcare field for over a decade. Being surrounded by the hospital environment, I’m always looking for better ways towards health and wellness. Most of the time, I eat well, I sleep well, I exercise, I dance, I garden and I use Cannabis.
Bedside nurses are the frontline of healthcare. I believe if the nurse taking care of you looks like they can’t take care of themselves, then they will struggle to try to care for others. Nursing is one of the most draining things you can put your body through. It is mentally and physically exhausting. I started having issues when I began school which nearly caused me to drop out. I suffered from back pain, migraines, various body aches, and severe endometriosis. The stress of caring for those who could not care for themselves took a toll on me. It was long ago I began using cannabis topicals that came to my rescue. I used it externally on my temples, my back, my pelvis, and any joint that hurt. It helped me function normally again and relieved my symptoms. Today, I use it as an analgesic, anti-pruritic, an anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and even as an under eye cream. I carry some with me everywhere I go! The effects of THC and CBD on my skin is definitely notable. Since it is for topical use, it doesn’t affect the brain because it doesn’t hit the blood stream. With the number of death’s by chemical narcotics increasing, I hope to see an increase of cannabis use in the hospital as a safer alternative to pain relief. I am very optimistic for the future of this plant.
I love to use products from Miss Envy because they are organic, fair trade, non-gmo, they work wonders and as they say “they’re made with love”. What more could you ask for in a pain reliever?
