CANNABIS TOPICALS: A SMOOTH TRANSITION

By Kush21 Editor

NEW KID ON THE BLOCK

The consumption of cannabis has reached new heights in the last several years, graduating from the days of just toking up a good J or taking a fat bong rip on a Friday night to elevated edibles and medicinal miracle cures.

Now we are welcoming in the new kid on the block by way of topicals and they are a game changer.

Cannabis topicals are gaining popularity, presenting a new form of herbal treatment for your stubborn aches and pains as well as intriguing recreational options that just might surprise you!

CANNABIS TOPICALS 101

Topicals are any oils, lotions, and balms infused with cannabis and used topically on your skin. Once applied, the THC from these healing balms absorbs into your skin, providing relief from muscle pain, soreness, skin inflammation and more.

Topicals don’t contain the same type of intoxicating effect that smoking or edibles can provide. Instead, they offer a beneficial way to enjoy the therapeutic abilities that marijuana holds without the buzz.

HEALING WITH TOPICALS

Those with conditions such as eczema, arthritis, psoriasis, and shingles can use topicals to help ease the pain associated with these ailments.

AN ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL SUNSCREEN

The cannabinoids within topicals also include strong antibacterial properties, which act as a guard against airborne allergens and even UV rays. Putting on suntan lotion never felt so good, right?

How about cannabis-infused lubricants? Oh yeah! These sex inspired topicals can provide a tingling sensation and some of the euphoric effects of THC, making time in the sack an even more satisfying and mind-blowing experience.

Another fantastic development for topicals has been the introduction of vaginal suppositories for menstrual pain like those by Foria.

Infused with a 50/50 THC/CBD ratio, this combo has proven to relieve women of cramping without the psychoactive effects of marijuana.

IS THERE A DOWNSIDE TO USING TOPICALS?

Some wonder if cannabis topicals, although great for pain, can be a reason for failing drug tests. The great thing about most topical use is that cannabinoids are only applied to your skin and drug tests are mainly looking for THC in your bloodstream. No need to worry! 

FINAL THOUGHTS

The developments in cannabis usage are becoming more advanced and creative every day. The innovation that has been applied in this industry has provided countless ways to consume cannabis for both medical and recreational purposes which means there are more options than ever for people of all needs and wants.
