As a forward minded thinking person who cares about your health (hopefully), you’ve probably been hearing a lot about cannabis topicals.You may have even tried them before. If you haven’t, then this is a train you need to get on. Cannabis topicals can be very beneficial if added to your daily routine, whether they are used as part of your beauty regimen, or after a workout. Your life will significantly improve if you introduce cannabis topicals into your daily routine.

First, a quick crash course on cannabis topicals. When we refer to cannabis topicals, we mean lotions, oils, creams, and transdermal patches that have been infused with cannabis. There are tons of cannabis topicals available on the market today. You apply them to your skin and the CB1 and CB2 receptors in your system absorb the THC and/or CBD.

Cannabis topicals are more often used for medical purposes than for recreational, aka “getting high”. They are generally used for things like pain relief, skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema. They have also shown promise in treating acne. I like using them after exercising to soothe my sore muscles. Cannabis helps treat inflammation, a condition that often leads to more serious health conditions. Topicals can be used to treat burns and abrasions. Some have found success in using them to get rid of moles and warts. Lastly, women have seen a great deal of success in using cannabis topicals to enhance their libidos. Who wouldn’t want that?
