What are Topicals? How do they work?
Topicals are marijuana-infused oils, balms and lotions that can be applied externally on the skin. These transdermal ointments are used to relieve muscle pain, soreness and inflammation. They provide the healing benefits of traditional cannabis without any of the psychoactive effects.
A topical can consist of either CBD or both THC and CBD extracts. These are applied directly on the skin in areas that are experiencing pain or inflammation. This can be relieving after exercise or if one has been experiencing long-term pain. Topicals are also used to help with Arthritis or joint pain in many cases. They are absorbed through CB1 and CB2 receptors in the skin, however, do not pass into the blood stream and therefore do not have any psychoactive effects on application.
