THC and CBD Topicals
Directly applied to the skin in the form of lotion, ointment, or a balm, cannabis topicals are typically used to help provide localized relief from many types of inflammation. These products are usually non-intoxicating and can be made with cannabis or only CBD to allow the therapeutic effects to take effect without THC’s psychoactivity. Customers can find a huge variety of topicals at PVP, conveniently located throughout New Mexico for all your cannabis dispensary needs.
What are cannabis topicals?
Topicals are non-intoxicating, cannabis-infused balms, creams, oils, salves, sprays, bath bombs, and lotions that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of inflammation, pain, tension, and soreness as well as in skincare and cosmetics. Many new sorts of topicals are becoming popular as well, including transdermal patches, cosmetics, and lubricants.
What can you use a cannabis-infused topical for?
Patients use topicals to create localized relief and reduce inflammation, pain, tension, and soreness from many different ailments. However, there is evidence to show that there may also be benefits to treating psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, acne, itching, arthritic pain, headaches, cramping, and more with topicals. Different topicals have different benefits depending on the ingredients they are made with and how they are processed.
How potent are cannabis topicals?
Similar to any cannabis-infused product, the potency will generally depend on the amount of THC in it and the consumer’s tolerance. However, topically applied cannabis-infused products like balms, creams, salves, oils, and spray usually do not contain active THC and are meant to provide relief, not psychoactive effects like traditional cannabis.
The exception to this rule is transdermal THC-infused patches and other products that absorb into the bloodstream. These can be potent and produce that familiar effect that normal cannabis products do, depending on the level of active THC included.
