Transdermal CBD Gel Trampled My Pain

By Alton

When my good friend – we’ll call her Mary – shared with me her experience with transdermal patches, she also showed me the gel pens that she uses to boost the effects of the patches. The lotion-like gel is what gave me my initial firsthand experience with transdermal CBD application.

I was experiencing severe pain in my left wrist, unable to support any weight with it in several different positions.  Traditional pain relievers (advil, aspirin, tylenol) didn’t make  much of a dent in the pain. I tried ingesting THC and CBD tinctures which provided some general relief but didn’t target the pain. It had gone on for weeks and I was about to make an appointment with my doctor to see if it was arthritis or something more serious.

Mary suggested I try the transdermal lotion she liked, from Mary’s Medicinals. I rubbed a nickel-sized portion of the CDB lotion on my wrist and within an hour the pain was completely gone. I have had no sign of the pain since then and it has been over 6 months. From that point on I have been an advocate for transdermal CBD whether as a topical lotion or in patches, especially for pain that is specific to one area.

My pain was likely from inflammation, which CBD can be great at reducing. I have also used the CBD gel rubbed on my temples to reduce headache pain or on the back of my neck at the base of the skull when I feel tension built up there. The great thing about the pen is that it dispenses small portions so it easier to control how much you use.
