For heaven's sake, please avoid such things. It is possible they may get absorbed through skin. There are simpler muscle rubs available which are safe. ( Rumalaya liniment for example ).

Hi,
Do not think to use such type of preparation.
Better products are available which will not cause any harm.
Always choose the drug which apart from its positive action, do not harm your body.

From what I understand, the oils can be absorbed right through your dermis and into your bloodstream, similar to sublingal application of tinctures. So MAYBE but it depends on what you are using... Check this product out.

Test results:
They determined, with great disappointment that there wasn't enough THC to be determined. there ya go! A cannabis product that has the freedom to heal without concern!

I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, complicated by arthritis in the joints. I recently tried MJ and was very surprised at how much relief I felt when I smoked it before bed. I would wake up with virtually no back pain and when I walk there is no sciatic pain down my legs. Do you recommend using medical MJ for patients like me?

I had an UTI and was told Niacin would help it go away. I had no money and had this at home so I took one 500mg cap a day and drank plenty on water for 7 days. I ended up getting a random drug test and the results said my creatinine was too low. Iddidn t even know what that was but they assume I tried deputing my urine and that s not the case. I told them this stuff was the only thing I have ingested, so.. I have 2 questions.. Does Niacin help with UTIs? Also could niacin make my urine test results on creatinine levels occur that way. I m curious and scared and could really use answers, and from someone who for sure knows the right answer.
