The weather in Chicago is often a challenge.
For more than half of the year, we deal with below freezing temperatures and feet of snow on the ground.
We expect blizzards, flurries, freezing rain, bitter windchill, rain, high winds and even negative temperatures. When we finally get sunshine and warm conditions, I try to spend every possible minute outdoors. I run, hike, kayak, cycle and swim. Along with fun activities, there’s always lots to do around the yard. I am constantly mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, trimming shrubs, raking and repairing the damage caused by the inclement weather. I end up with quite a few muscle aches and sore joints. My back, hips and knees are often sore. I don’t want these issues to get in the way of enjoying my life. I’ve found that cannabis helps alleviate pain and inflammation. Every other week, I make a trip to one of the Chicago dispensaries and stock up on cannabis tinctures. I purchase as much as I am legally allowed. I prefer tinctures because I use very little and they offer an especially long shelf-life. The packaging is easy to seal tight and small enough to carry in a pocket. Tinctures include a handy dropper that allows for precise micro dosing. I simply place a few drops under my tongue and let the liquid absorb. The sublingual consumption method provides onset of effects within minutes. There’s no smoke, ash, odors, mess or waste. Tinctures don’t require any additional gear or expertise. They are available in a wide range of THC-dominant, CBD-dominant and varying ratios. I can choose from indicas, sativas and hybrids and all sorts of flavors.
