TOPICALS WITH THC RELIEVE ACUTE PAIN.

What really makes the difference in people’s minds is their friends and neighbors that have tried it and found relief. When you can put a cream on and it helps right away, takes that pain away, that is big. My husband had tendinitis on his foot and nothing else would work and you put it on there, it is just amazing. It just wipes that pain right away. I’ve had surgery on both my feet and I have plates and pins and screws in there and I put a little bit of that cream on there and it takes away any pain. – Shari Horne, former Mayor of Laguna Woods, CA
