Medical Marijuana Topicals

One of the fastest growing methods of using medical marijuana is by applying topicals. Patients are attracted to the fact that they’re both non-psychoactive and that the user can apply medication to targeted locations on their body, allowing for pinpointed pain relief. Topicals treat many different ailments, and there are multiple methods of application.


Topical Medical Marijuana Products Available

Topicals are a method that uses extracted cannabis oil infused into different types of products that can be applied directly to the skin. Because the medication doesn’t enter the bloodstream, topicals don’t get users “high.” However, patients can still get relief from different ailments and symptoms. Because the medicine is derived from cannabis oil, it can be infused into many different types of topicals. This includes:
  • Balms
  • Oils
  • Lubricants
  • Sprays
  • Lotions
  • Transdermal patches

The Benefits of Using Medical Marijuana Topicals

The medical world is just beginning to see the many applications medical marijuana has. Topical treatments are bringing relief to many who don’t wish to get high. The same cannabinoids that bring relief to those who smoke marijuana — like THC and CBD — can be felt in a topical form. Plus, applying it directly to a painful or sore location of the body produces targeted relief. There are many symptoms and ailments patients are using topical medical marijuana to treat. Some of the most common include:
  • Muscle soreness
  • Tension
  • Inflammation
  • Post-workout relief
  • Psoriasis
  • Dermatitis
  • Itching
  • Headaches
  • Cramping
  • Arthritis
Plus, medical marijuana is an all-natural remedy that works directly with your endocannabinoid system, allowing you to break free from heavy-duty, addictive medications and painkillers.

Tips for Choosing a Medical Marijuana Topical

Because each patient is different, be sure to discuss medical marijuana treatment options with your doctor or budtender. They can speak to your specific symptoms and offer individualized advice. However, there are a few things to keep in mind while shopping for topical treatments. Topicals are often blended with other herbal remedies to increase their effectiveness. For example, a topical treated with menthol or peppermint may help after an intense workout. Those infused with warming properties help manage severe, localized pain. No two topicals are exactly alike. Be sure to read all the labels and choose a product that meets your individual needs.
