One antiquated idea of cannabis is that it belongs in a bong or a joint. The other idea that marijuana can only be used for getting high is also an old one. One of the best examples that combat both of these things is topical cannabis.
What Are Cannabis Topicals?
Cannabis-infused oils, which can come in many different forms, including lotions, oils, and salves, are what we call topicals. Topicals, as you probably already know, are applied to the skin. The point is to allow these topicals to relieve pain and inflammation. Topicals are not meant to be psychoactive. People who want the benefits of therapy without the psychoactive effects will often turn to cannabis topicals.
One of the beautiful things about topicals is that they can make use of various chemical profiles. For example, a grower might choose to use a Blueberry plant or a Permafrost plant, imitating their very particular cannabinoids and terpenes for the best therapeutic effects possible.
For additional benefits, many growers add in their own herbs and essential oils, such as clove, wintergreen, and cayenne.
How Do Cannabis Topicals Work?
Cannabis topicals can help fight off tension, soreness, localized pain, and inflammation. However, even now, science is still blazing trails for cannabis topicals. There is plenty of evidence out there that suggests cannabis topicals can help treat chronic itchiness, cramping, headaches, psoriasis, and dermatitis.
If you are someone who works a laborious job or goes through physical challenges each day, then you might consider cannabis topicals that make use of menthol or peppermint, as these elements can cool down your skin. On the other hand, you might consider going with a salve if you want a soothing or tingling sensation.
If you are living in a medical marijuana state, then we highly recommend going and trying out different topical remedies that are coming out.
As you can probably guess, different strains and topicals have different benefits. The effects completely depend on the types of ingredients that you find within your topical cannabis. Of course, the effects can also depend on how old the plants are, the methods through which they were processed, and the body chemistry of the plants.
It is always good to experiment with transdermal products, as these might be the unique plants that work for your needs.
