Are you aware of all the different medical uses Cannabis Topical’s have? Psoriasis, sunburns, dermatitis, headaches, cramping, inflammation, soreness, bug bites, and pain are just a few of the medical conditions that topical creams have shown great results with.
These topicals are absorbed through the skin for localized relief and repeat application can reach deeper than the skins surface as well. Even if a topical contains active THC, it still won’t induce the psychoactive effects you’d get from smoking or ingesting cannabis. Our TJ’s Topical Lotion is strain specific cannabis infused shae butter that can be applied on most external skin surfaces.
So you’re probably wondering how topical’s work. Cannabis-infused lotions activate by binding to a network of receptors called CB2. CB2 receptors are found throughout the body and are activated either by the body’s naturally-occurring endocannabinoids or by self applied cannabis compounds such as THC and CBD. During application, this lotion will open up cappillaries for blood flow, producing a slight tingle on the skins surface. We recommend applying it after taking a hot shower when pores are open and ready for absorption.
There is one form of topical that does have the ability to produce psychoactive effects. These are called transdermal patches and they do so by allowing the Cannabinoids to reach the bloodstream.
