I just recently learned about cannabis-infused topicals.
I knew that marijuana was available in loose flower, oils, edibles and drinks but wasn’t aware of the many lotions and ointments.
Cannabis topicals are applied directly to the surface of the sink and used for fast-acting and localized relief from pain and inflammation. They are typically non-intoxicating. I can benefit from the therapeutic effects at any time of afternoon or night because there’s no worry over THC getting me high. The products often smell of wintergreen or clove because of the addition of soothing soils. They stink nice and no one realizes I’m using a cannabis product. Cannabis topicals are wonderful for my sore knees and hips. The cannabinoids are absorbed into the bloodstream more slowly than if I was smoking or consuming weed and the effects are limited to where the product is applied. I’ve tried sprays, lotions, bath salts, sprays, patches and oils that are infused with cannabis and made with organic materials and essential oils. The topicals usually include both THC and CBD, which are hard compounds in the cannabis plant. They link to receptors in the body that are responsible for many biological functions, including anti-inflammation and pain relief. Applying cannabis-infused topicals allows the THC and CBD to bind directly to receptors found in skin, muscle tissues and nerves. It not only provides relief to that unique part but absorbs into the bloodstream to get distributed throughout the body. I have arthritis pain that is the result of joint inflammation. I’ve tried all uncommon pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter remedies with limited success. Cannabis topicals have significantly decreased the pain and allowed me to care about better quality of life.
