The incredible health benefits and seemingly endless uses for cannabis are still being discovered, but one of the most prominent new trends is the emergence of cannabis-infused ointments. (Topicals)

A topical is a great item to keep on hand as they have been shown to provide immense relief from chronic or acute localized pain. Because topicals are applied directly to the skin, they won’t get you high, which means they’re a great pain reliever to use at work or during the day when you can’t responsibly consume cannabis to relieve painful symptoms.

Cannabis-infused ointments work by binding to a network of receptors called CB2. These CB2 receptors are found throughout the body and are activated either by the body’s naturally-occurring endocannabinoids or by cannabis compounds known as “phytocannabinoids” (e.g., THC, CBD).

This topical contains active THC, but it still won’t induce that intense “high” you’d get from smoking or ingesting cannabis. This ointment cannabinoids can’t breach the bloodstream; they only penetrate to the system of CB2 receptors.

Cannabinoids relieve inflammation, are anti-microbial. Support / modulate the immune system and its response to infection / disease. Cannabinoids are expectorants, analgesic and has little to no side effects.

Topicals are most popularly chosen for localized pain relief, muscle soreness, tension, and inflammation, but anecdotal evidence is beginning to show a widening spectrum of potential benefits, from psoriasis, dermatitis, and itching to headaches and cramping.

Arthritic pain is caused by inflammation. My products have [THCA] and CBD, both of which are anti-inflammatory. Active THC is not for inflammation, but when left in its acid form and combined with CBD, the two work to get rid of inflammation and the pain that comes with it. I am a living example that it really does work.
