Topicals are applied directly to the skin to alleviate inflammation, tension and pain
Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms and transdermal patches or pens for localized relief of pain, soreness and inflammation. Marijuana topicals are non-intoxicating and often selected by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of cannabis delivered directly to the problematic area.
From psoriasis, dermatitis and itching to headaches and cramping, topicals are used to treat a wide range of symptoms. A cannabis-rich rub infused with menthol like Mary’s Medicinals 1:1 Transdermal Compound provides natural targeted relief that can be just as powerful as chemical-based lotions and medicines you can find in your local drugstore.
Cannabis-infused topicals work by binding to your body’s cannabinoid receptors for localized relief. Even if a topical contains active THC, it still won’t induce that intense “high” you would get from smoking or ingesting cannabis. With most topicals, cannabinoids can’t reach the bloodstream. They only penetrate deep enough for localized relief. Transdermal patches, however, do deliver cannabinoids to the bloodstream and could have intoxicating effects if the THC content is high enough. Different topicals have different benefits to offer depending on the way they are processed and the ingredients that are used.
