As cannabis becomes more socially accepted as a medicine and adult use product, more is being understood about how cannabis works and how it can be used effectively across many different methodologies.
A great example is the use of cannabis medicine as a trans-dermal application for pain. Better known as “topicals”, this form of cannabis medicine is directly applied to afflicted areas “topically” for localized relief.
Much like capsaicin creams or cooling gels, topical cannabis products are a great choice for neuropathic/ chronic pain management of joints and muscles. It is also effective in treating radial bursts and is considered non-psychoactive for those interested in the healing properties of cannabis without the intoxicating effects.
Topicals come in a wide variety of product types and textures for variable needs for the consumer. Below is a list of topical products that are cannabis infused:
- Massage oil
- Petroleum gels
- Bath salts
- Body wash, soap,
- Hair/body oil
- Muscle/joint cream
