One of the advantages of using topicals is the variety of today’s products. There are countless infusions and ingredient combinations cannabis companies are experimenting within today’s legal market. Below are the most common.
Balms / Salves
Balms and salves utilize natural ingredients to deliver the cannabinoids and provide additional benefits. Many companies use beeswax and serve as skincare or antiseptic, as well as a pain reliever.
Pain-relieving cream is the most common type of cannabis topical. Cream can be used liberally to ensure enough cannabinoids reach the sore muscle or joint.
Most creams will feature additional ingredients to help reduce inflammation and combat pain.
Skin Care Products
Skincare cannabis products are the fastest-growing sector in the industry. Huge cosmetic manufacturers infuse their products with CBD and other cannabinoids to increase benefits. While infused skincare products are easy to find, we recommend only buying from a cannabis company to ensure the highest quality of hemp or marijuana is used in the products.
Roll-on topical cannabis is used to relieve sore muscles and joints. Topical advocates like to use a roll-on because it is convenient, and there is less mess than creams, balms, and salves. Some topical roll-on or pen products can be transdermal and enter your bloodstream to produce mild intoxicating effects so read the package carefully.
Bath bombs encapsulate all the senses to create a heightened sense of relaxation. Some bath bomb products can be transdermal and enter your bloodstream to produce mild intoxicating effects so read the package carefully.
Cannabis-infused massage oil can intensify the experience by interacting with the receptors in the body. Deep tissue massages with cannabis massage oil have become increasingly popular since CBD became federally legal.
For centuries cannabis advocates have claimed that their favorite plant has natural aphrodisiac properties. Combined with the anti-inflammation properties of topical cannabis, an infused lube can be a life-changing experience.
