Cannabis topicals include oils, lotions, balms, and salves infused with active cannabinoids. They are applied directly to your skin and, although some topicals may contain THC, the effects are typically non-psychoactive as the dermal skin layer absorbs most, if not all the compounds before any reach the bloodstream. If a topical is applied liberally to a venous region, such as the wrist, an overall relaxation effect may be experienced. The limited absorption and regionalized effects make topical products a terrific way enjoy the anti-inflammation and pain relieving aspects of cannabis, particularly in targeting specific regions of the body like sore joints or aching muscles
The most effective way to apply topicals would be to massage the product well into the affected area. If the patient is seeking relief from muscle spasms, combining the topical with heat would be most effective. Topicals can be used on joints, rashes and normally is combined with other ingredients to reduce pain and inflammation of affected areas. Topicals have become an increasingly popular method of consumption method in part due to their benign nature. At Lightshade we carry a broad selection from offering different mixtures of cannabinoids and herbs for general relief, performance sports and more.
