How do topicals work?
Smoking cannabis or ingesting it orally could take up to 2 hours or more to fully experience the effects. Topical application of cannabinoids allows them to be absorbed directly into the affected area for faster and more focused relief by binding to a network of receptors called CB2. These CB2 receptors are found throughout the body and are activated either by the body’s naturally-occurring endocannabinoids or by cannabis compounds known as “phytocannabinoids” (e.g., THC, CBD).
What are cannabis topicals?
Cannabis topicals are cannabis-infused balms, salves, lotions, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Topicals are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods.
Topicals are most popularly chosen for localized pain relief, muscle soreness, tension, and inflammation, but studies are beginning to show a widening spectrum of potential benefits, from psoriasis, dermatitis and itching, to headaches.
Will I get intoxicated?
No. There are no psychoactive “stoned” effects from these treatments. Many recipients report extreme relaxation after receiving our services. Evidence suggests that you will not fail a drug test after using topicals, but for anyone that is concerned about this, we offer a CBD only-massage that does not contain THC.
What does Science say?
A study analysis in the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM) confirms that topical use of certain cannabinoid topicals can reduce pain in animals with inflammation or neuropathic pain.
Are there ANY requirements?
