My hubby & I honeymooned in Portland, Oregon, & it was a good time, but the people I was with and I spent a month there, exploring the city, taking in the sights & enjoying several excursions, one of our favorites was a tour of Mt, then hood & the Columbia Gorge.
The tour took us to Multnomah Falls, the historic Timberline Lodge, the Bridge of the Gods, Bonneville Lock & Dam, all sorts of waterfalls & every one of us stopped at several bizarre wineries.
The people I was with and I tasted Gorge-produced wine that was incredible. The excursion lasted almost several hours & was amazing but tiring. The amount of walking combined with sleeping on a hotel bed mattress led to my hubby experiencing concerns with his back; Everything from his neck & shoulders to his hips was in pain, then although he tried to downplay the severity, I wasn’t fooled. He was walking absolutely slowly & cringing every time he needed to stand down or stand upâ€¦ I finally did some online research, hoping to help. I was absolutely looking at chiropractors, massage parlors & acupuncturists when I came across a nearby recreational cannabis dispensary, but because recreational cannabis is legal in Portland, every one of us didn’t need a medical marijuana card or an appointment. The people I was with and I simply walked inside the dispensary, showed our identifications & explained our situation to a single of the budtenders. He commanded a combination of cannabis-infused topicals & a tincture. I applied the lotion directly to my hubby’s skin for localized relief of pain & inflammation. He placed a few drops of the tincture under his tongue. The sublingual absorption provided quick onset of effects.
