Remedy Yourself with Topical Cannabis
Topical cannabis is an alternative way to heal
Topicals are Remedies in the form of cannabis-infused lotions, balms, salves, and oils. Patients rub them on, and the skin absorbs it. Topical marijuana includes the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive side effects. Topicals can be strain specific, which allows them to harness different effects.
How topical cannabis heals
After the skin absorbs them, topicals work by binding to the CB2 receptors in the dermis. CB2 receptors occur throughout the body and are activated by cannabis compounds, such as THC and CBD. However, even topicals high in active THC will not induce the intense psychoactive effects that accompany cannabis that you smoke or ingest.
Topical marijuana is more inviting to patients, since it’s rubbed on as a healing cream and is not as invasive as ingesting or smoking. While it may take more than two hours to fully experience the effects, topicals provide almost instantaneous relief. Common target areas include:
- Other joints
Medical effects of topical marijuana
Topical cannabis is versatile and can treat a number of ailments based on the strains used in production. Patients can use topicals as anti-inflammatory or pain relievers depending on the specific strains used to produce them. Manufacturers use strains high in THC to effectively treat and relieve inflammation.
Topical cannabis stimulates cell-regeneration, reducing the most common symptoms of cancer. Studies show treating burns with topical cannabis heal significantly faster than when you use other methods of treatment. The versatility of cannabis topicals allows it to treat illnesses from headaches and cramps to psoriasis.
