Cannabis Topicals

Applied To The Skin

Cannabis Topicals

Topical cannabis products, such as salves, bath bombs, lotions, and patches, are gaining popularity for their potential therapeutic effects without the psychoactive “high” associated with other consumption methods. These products are applied directly to the skin and are absorbed locally, targeting specific areas of discomfort or inflammation. The cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, in topical cannabis, products interact with the endocannabinoid receptors in the skin, muscles, and tissues, potentially providing relief from pain, inflammation, and some skin conditions.
Absorbed Through The Skin

Salves

Salves are a common type of topical cannabis product made by infusing cannabis extracts into a base of oils or waxes, such as coconut oil or beeswax. They are typically packaged in jars or tins and are applied directly to the skin by massaging a small amount onto the affected area. Salves are often used to relieve localized pain, soreness, or inflammation, and the effects can be felt within minutes to hours, lasting several hours to a day, depending on the potency and formulation of the product.

Bath Bombs

Bath bombs infused with cannabis extracts are another popular topical option, offering a luxurious and relaxing way to experience the therapeutic benefits of cannabinoids. These products are typically made by combining cannabis extracts with other ingredients such as baking soda, citric acid, and essential oils to create a fizzy and aromatic bath experience. Users simply drop the bath bomb into warm bathwater, where it dissolves, releasing the cannabis-infused oils and aromas. Bath bombs can provide full-body relaxation and relief from muscle tension and stress, with effects lasting for the duration of the bath.

Creams & Lotions

Topical cannabis lotions and creams are designed to be applied directly to the skin and are often formulated with a combination of cannabis extracts, moisturizing agents, and essential oils. They come in various forms, including pump bottles, squeeze tubes, or jars, and can be applied to any area of the body experiencing discomfort or irritation. Lotions and creams are absorbed into the skin, where the cannabinoids interact with cannabinoid receptors, providing localized relief from pain, itching, or inflammation. The effects of topical lotions and creams typically last several hours, depending on the potency and formulation of the product.
Transdermal

Patches

Cannabis patches are another innovative form of topical cannabis product that delivers cannabinoids through the skin via transdermal delivery. These patches are infused with cannabis extracts and are applied directly to the skin, where the cannabinoids are absorbed into the bloodstream over time. Patches are often used to provide long-lasting relief from chronic pain, inflammation, or other symptoms, with effects lasting up to several days. They are discreet and convenient, allowing users to apply them to any area of the body and go about their daily activities without interruption.
Topical

Benefits

One of the primary benefits of topical cannabis products is their localized and targeted relief, making them ideal for treating specific areas of discomfort or inflammation without affecting the rest of the body. Additionally, topical products offer a non-invasive and discreet method of cannabis consumption, making them suitable for use in public settings or situations where smoking or ingesting cannabis may not be practical. Furthermore, topical cannabis products can be used in conjunction with other forms of cannabis consumption to provide comprehensive relief from symptoms.
Topical

Drawbacks

There are some drawbacks to consider when using topical cannabis products. One limitation is their slower onset of action compared to other consumption methods, as cannabinoids must penetrate the skin barrier before reaching the bloodstream. This means that it may take longer to feel the effects of topical products compared to inhaling or ingesting cannabis. Also, the effects of topical cannabis products are often localized to the area of application and may not provide systemic relief for conditions affecting the entire body. Lastly, the potency and effectiveness of topical cannabis products can vary depending on factors such as the concentration of cannabinoids, the quality of the ingredients, and individual differences in skin sensitivity and absorption.

A Precise Option

Topical cannabis products offer a convenient and effective way to experience the therapeutic benefits of cannabinoids without the need for smoking or ingesting cannabis. Whether it’s a salve, bath bomb, lotion, or patch, these products provide targeted relief from pain, inflammation, and other symptoms, making them a valuable addition to the toolkit of medical cannabis patients and wellness enthusiasts alike.
