“Topical” is a term used to describe a product that is applied to the skin. Cannabis topicals are cannabis-infused products that consumers use to treat a wide range of skin conditions.
Cannabis topicals are non-psychoactive, which means they will not produce the “high” associated with cannabis. They are made by extracting cannabinoids from the cannabis plant and infusing them into an oil or cream base. Cannabis topicals come in various forms, such as creams, lotions, balms, sprays, and salves. They can be bath products as well, like salts and soaks.
Cannabis topicals treat a wide range of skin conditions, including inflammation, pain, itchiness, and muscle soreness. They can also help with acne and eczema. The cannabinoid profiles in different topicals can produce different effects.
Consumers can DIY cannabis topicals at home or purchase them from a dispensary. However, finding the correct dosing might need guidance from a healthcare professional or budtender.
