What is a Cannabis Topical?
Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin. Cannabis topicals are used to provide localized relief of pain, soreness and inflammation.
Topicals are often used by patients that want to experience the therapeutic benefits of marijuana, without the head high.
Along with THC, CBD, THCA and other cannabinoids topicals can contain other select ingredients and essential oils that provide additional relief.
How do marijuana infused topicals work?
Cannabis infused topicals work by binding to a network of receptors called CB2. CB2 receptors are found throughout the body and are activated by the naturally-occuring endocannabinods, or by cannabis compounds known as “phytocannabinoids” (e.g., THC, CBD).
Topicals that contain THC will not induce the intense high that you get from smoking or ingesting cannabis. Most topicals cannot breach the bloodstream, they only penetrate to reach the system of CB2 receptors.
What is a Cannabis Medicinal?
Cannabis medicinals are available in many different forms, these can range from tinctures, to pills and topicals (as discussed above) such as Cannabis Suppositories.
Cannabis Tincture is one of the fastest acting forms of cannabis consumption. After applying a few drops of tincture under the tongue, users can expect the effects to hit after a minute or two. This is much quicker than smoking and vaping, which takes around 5-10 minutes to take effect, while edibles take even longer at around 1-2 hours.
CBD Oil is extremely useful for dealing with anxiety, depression, and epilepsy, but what you might not know is that it makes for an excellent addition to your beauty and skincare regimen as well. For starters, it consists of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids that have anti-inflammatory properties which are useful for treating conditions like atopic dermatitis. Similarly, the oleic acids present in it play a vital role in anti-aging.
Cannabis Suppositories are concentrated forms of cannabis that are administered through either the vagina or rectum. They’re much the same as other medical suppositories, providing patients that may struggle to ingest with a way to consume cannabis.
