What is a cannabis infused topical?
Topicals are cannabis-infused salves, balms, lotions, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized pain relief, soreness, and inflammation. Because they are non-intoxicating, topicals are often chosen by patients who seek the therapeutic effects of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods.
What can I treat with infused topicals?
Topicals are commonly chosen for localized pain relief, muscle soreness, tension, and inflammation, but anecdotal evidence is beginning to show a widening spectrum of potential benefits, from psoriasis, dermatitis, and itching to headaches and cramping.
In addition to the THC infused components, this salve contains a variety of organic, all-natural butters and oils that have been proven to keep skin moisturized, youthful, and glowing.
Will I experience intoxicating effects as a result of the topical application of this product?
Absolutely not. This cannabis infused salve, when applied to the skin, will not induce the euphoric effects commonly associated with THC. Cannabis infused topicals provide relief by binding to a network of receptors called CB2; these CB2 receptors are found throughout the body and are activated by either the body’s naturally-occurring endocannabinoids or by external cannabis compounds known as phytocannabinoids, more commonly known as THC or CBD.
Even through this topical contains active THC, it will not induce an intense “high” that is obtained by other methods of consumption. This is due to the fact that with transdermal application such as topicals, cannabinoids cannot reach the bloodstream, and are only able to penetrate to the system of CB2 receptors. This product is NOT intended for oral consumption.
