If you’re dealing with pain or aches in your joints, a good balm can be an excellent choice for pain relief. One way to make a strong pain relieving ointment is to incorporate Cannabis into your balm, aka Cannabalm. Using Cannabis in the normal form (smoking it, duh) works well, of course, but did you know that using a Cannabis topical is the best way to avoid any psychoactive effects? A study published by the US National Library of Medicine
, found CB1 and CB2 receptors located in many areas of human skin, including hair follicles, sweat glands and nerve fiber bundles. The study conducted determined that chemical compounds found in Cannabis can directly affect the receptors without passing through the blood/brain barrier. Basically, you won’t get high when you apply Cannabis to your skin as a topical instead of smoking, vaping, or eating it.
Common Uses for a Cannabis Topical
There are a variety of reason to use Cannabalm, but here are the top reasons to use a Cannabis Topical:
- Bacterial and Fungal Skin Infections
- Insect Bites
- Pain Management
- Sexual Lubricant
- Skin Elasticity
So as you can see, topical Cannabis can help a variety of issues you may be dealing with and can also be a pretty nice addition to your sex life too.
