My ancestors used (Marihuana, Mariguana) due to its effective curative, healing properties to treat on their rheumatoid arthritis, sprained muscles, lumbago...much better than ben-gay, dencorub creams, sprays and other stuff to rub on your body.
The Marihuana was soak in rum then rubbed on the body part affected...great muscle pain relief. The point is about giving the right use in time, if you abuse it then consequences will come as well.
