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. 

Learn more about cannabis topicals, how they work, and the forms they come in, with the help of Strains Dispensary.

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. 

Types of Topicals

Whether you are going for a strictly CBD topical or want something that also contains THC, there are so many options to choose from including: 

  • Creams and Lotions- easy to apply on the body and great for those seeking skin benefits 
  • Oils- great for versatile uses like applying to the skin or even ingesting orally 
  • Salves- works well for psoriasis and eczema 
  • Gels- provides a cooling effect making it an excellent option for headaches
  • Transdermal Patches- the most powerful form of topicals and has the potential for psychoactive effects
