Curious if anyone has tried to use/rub the inside juice/water/gel like substance in the middle of a stem, as a topical for pain relief? (I'm talking about fresh plants.) It wouldn't be viable large scale or for extracting the water, but it you crack a stem in half, rub your finger against it, and apply it to said painful joint.....? It seems to work for me to a certain extent, but maybe it's just a placebo effect? Anyone else ever try this?
