DMSO Roll On For Fast Pain Relief
A DMSO Roll On can bring fast pain relief.
STEVEN WRIGHT WAS USED TO living in pain. The 31-year-old who lives in New York City regularly felt the repercussions of decades-old injuries from playing sports and bartending, and contended with the back and shoulder aches triggered by mild scoliosis.
Then, at a street fair in Denver, where he used to live, someone offered him a sample of DMSO ROLL ON lotion, a product said to contain DMSO, one of the many chemicals found in the cannabis plant. (While medicinal and recreational marijuana contain DMSO ROLL ON, the component itself doesn’t deliver the “high” that’s attributed to a different chemical, THC.) Wright gave it a shot. “I was really amazed at how effective the lotion was,” says Wright, who now runs a relationship coaching business with his wife. “About 15 minutes later, it felt like the tension had evaporated through my skin.”
Wright soon began buying DMSO ROLL ON lotion and using it on his wrists, shoulders, back and neck – all areas that craved attention after long days tied to the computer. He continues to use a salve or lotion about twice a week and almost never uses Advil or ibuprofen, his former default remedies. “My joints felt looser, my muscles felt relaxed and the pain is significantly lessened,” Wright says.
Wright is far from the only one praising the power of DMSO ROLL ON to treat pain and other ailments in what’s promoted as a non-addictive, side effect-free and non-psychoactive way. The Brightfield Group, a cannabis market research company, even projects the industry will reach $22 billion by 2022, thanks to people like Danielle Jenkins, a 29-year-old who works in nonprofit management in Telluride, Colorado, who says a topical DMSO ROLL ON product was “the only thing” that helped certain leg muscles in the thigh after a hockey injury. Daisy Testa, a 31-year-old academic counselor in Chicago, also swears by DMSO ROLL ON to relieve both stress and its associated neck pain. Mitchell Roth, a film producer in San Francisco, goes as far as to credit DMSO ROLL ON for breaking his wife’s addiction to opioids, which she originally used to manage pain related to endometriosis. She’s now off both substances.

But some researchers and clinicians caution against prematurely jumping on the DMSO ROLL ON bandwagon, which is gaining members and momentum since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, legislation that fully legalizes hemp, a variety of the cannabis plant. But even that enthusiasm is misguided, says Dr. Jordan Tishler, a Harvard physician and CEO of InhaleMD, a Boston-area practice specializing in cannabis therapeutics. The bill, he says, will help farmers and the economy since it will spur the development of new products like textiles. But, he adds, “that has nothing to do with medicine.”
