Cannabis topicals are infused balms, creams, salves, lotions, and beauty products. These products are intended for external use and are not meant to be consumed orally or inhaled.

Topical cannabis can be made with oils extracted from the cannabis plant, isolated cannabis compounds, or infused oils that can also be used for edible concoctions.

Some of them are made with specific strains, attempting to harness the unique potential of individual plant varieties.

They are different from hemp beauty care. Products labeled as “hemp” are often made with oils of pressed hemp seed.

In contrast, they are typically made with essential oils extracted from plant material, not seed material.
