I’ve been doing some research in the cannabis plant in addition to odd consumption methods; I am mainly interested in topicals! While I am quite common with smoking flower in addition to the convenience of vapes, I had never considered the potential of topicals until recently.
While browsing the shelves of my number one dispensary in Portland, I observed an abundance of cannabis infused lotions, balms, ointments, roll-ons, sprays, transdermal patches in addition to even bath bombs.
I l gained that these products are non-psychoactive, have no dosing limitations in addition to can be applied many times per afternoon; The effects of topicals are realized by activating cannabinoid receptors in the skin, providing pain relief, reducing inflammation, promoting healing in addition to treating conditions such as acne, psoriasis in addition to eczema. They can even be beneficial in stress-relief, treatment of insomnia in addition to for arthritis in addition to MS. It’s extremely helpful to be able to treat particular medical conditions internally in addition to well as externally. I often experience inflammation, swelling in addition to pain in my multiple joints. I can smoke, vape or locale a few drops of a tincture under my tongue in addition to the cannabinoids work their way into my bloodstream to provide relief; At the same time, I can apply a cannabis infused topical directly to the spot that hurts. Topicals are divided into Type I that is THC-dominant, Type II that is a combination of CBD in addition to THC in addition to Type III that is CBD dominant. I’ve experimented with the multiple types of cannabis topicals to find what works best for me. I enjoy that they officially absorb quickly, aren’t greasy in addition to because of being infused with essential oils, tend to smell pleasant, and rather than a medicinal smells, cannabis topicals often smell enjoy lavender, citrus or eucalyptus.
