Topicals

Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Cannabis has been used to treat and soothe the body by cultures around the world for millennia, from the ancient Chinese to the Native Americans. Today’s cannabis brands are continuing this work while enhancing their craft with current knowledge of cannabis compounds and how they interact with the human body. Perhaps nowhere is this modern take better viewed than in the world of cannabis topicals. 

Cannabis infused balms, lotions, salves, suppositories, and bath products are a great entry point into cannabis wellness and are popularly used for targeted pain relief and recovery. If you’re wondering what product type is the best marijuana for pain, it all depends on your personal goals. If your aim is to experience the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without experiencing any psycho-activity, infused topicals are the best pain relief solution available.

Crafted with a rich array of cannabinoids and therapeutic botanicals, topicals often contain CBD, a cannabinoid with anti-inflammatory properties, as well as THC, which may help reduce the sensation of localized pain and inflammation when used topically. The THC in topicals does not induce psycho-activity because cannabinoids don’t penetrate the skin barrier when applied topically. Although, there are some exceptions to this sentiment, including transdermal products, lubricants and bath bombs, which do have the capacity to induce psycho-activity. THC topicals often also contain anti-inflammatory botanical terpenes, as well as essential oils to create an overall soothing experience.

Available in a variety of forms, there’s THC cream for pain, available as lotions, balms and salves, as well as products like cannabis-infused lubricants, bath products, suppositories. THC and CBD pain lotions, or other types of cannabis-infused topicals, are a popular way to manage everyday aches and pains, menstrual cramps, migraines and sore muscles. Also used for skin conditions such as psoriasis and sunburn, topicals are applied directly to the skin to provide localized relief.
