Do Cannabis Topicals Work?
There are plenty of benefits that come with using cannabis topicals such as pain relief, inflammation relief, and more. They act as lubricants that penetrate the surface layer of the skin and once they hit the bloodstream they bind with cannabinoid receptors in your endocannabinoid system. The effects of a topical typically take about an hour to kick in and they come in many forms, some containing only CBD and others containing both CBD and THC.

How to Use Cannabis Topicals
Cannabis topicals can aid with many different things including skin conditions, pain and inflammation, treating migraines, and reducing acne. If you are new to using topicals try applying a small amount to an area of the skin and see if there is any kind of reaction before going for the full recommended dose on the label.
For the best results you should be consistent with usage, users also report that they feel the most relief when using topicals in the morning or at bedtime.
