Restrictions of use (personal and DOH):
Patient has a form of consumption preference for topicals. Tinctures are a possibility in the future, but not at this time.
Both creams can be used together, but only if needing to boost a specific cannabinoid (i.e. CBD). Explained that when starting, to alternate applications to maintain pain relief throughout the day but also to confirm that each product is helping with what needs to be alleviated.
Patient feels she gets adequate pain control with using both creams throughout the day. Patient may consider the use of a tincture in the future like Ease 10:1 tincture if she feels like her pain becomes unmanageable. For now, the patient feels the creams are helping with managing pain day to day. Patient is getting pain relief from topicals. With some patient demographics, utilizing a product that provides a localized effect can be beneficial as opposed to ingesting/inhaling cannabis.
