Marijuana Medicated Topical’s And How They Work

Cananbis Topicals & How They Work

New methods of cannabis consumption are bringing us further away from the notion that marijuana belongs solely in a bong or joint – or that it has to get you high, for that matter.

Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation.

It is essential to understand the difference between marijuana and hemp type of cannabis sativa plant to avoid confusion later. The former contains greater than 0.3 percent THC. THC is short for Tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive component of cannabis, the component that is responsible for giving a “high”. It is one of no less than 113 cannabinoids established as present in cannabis.
