What are Cannabis Balms
Marijuana topicals (Most should be CBD Based not Marijuana THC based in our professional Manufacturing opinion) can come as a balm, salve, a cream or even an petroleum. They are meant to be applied to the skin and render localized comfort for ache. Sorenes may be from nerves, arthritis, inflammation, and general soreness, among other conditions. The welfare of a topical, to numerous patients, is that a topical can provide ache comfort without creating a sense of being high-pitched or stoned.
Cannabis infused balms work by being absorbed through the skin and binding to our CB2 receptors, which are found throughout the body. THC and CBD along with other cannabinoids will have an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect on the body once they come into contact with these receptors. In general, topicals will not get into the blood stream, which is one of the reasons you do not get high. Transdermal patches are another way of medicinal administration and transdermals actually do get into the blood stream, so they are somewhat different in comparison with topicals.
Cannabis salves are said to help with sore muscles, back pain, arthritis and many other aches and pains. I have used different balms to help me with acute lower back pain, sore muscles, tendonitis and bursitis in my hips. Many marijuana topicals on the market today carry some of the same ingredients found within drugstore muscle creams, including eucalyptus, camphor, menthol and others. There are a couple of downsides to using topicals; many smell like cannabis and they can often feel greasy due to their carrier oils. Although there is little to no research done on topicals, anecdotally I have found that people who use cannabis topicals seem to uniformly like or love them.
As you may know, there are numerous marijuana balms out on the market, and many that I have yet to try. Here I’m going to tell you about four topicals that I use and like.
