As more and more research is conducted on cannabinoids like THC and CBD and the endocannabinoid system, newer ways to use cannabinoid based products are being developed, including the use of our largest and most outward organ — our skin.
Cannabis topicals have been around for centuries. The use of the plant to treat wounds, aggressive infections, and heavy burns dates back to 2,700 BC.
It was mainly used orally (as a tincture or component in medicine) and by smoking, although there is some documentation of external use.
Cannabis is believed to have been used externally by the Egyptians, for its antiseptic properties. Reports from different parts of Africa indicate that it was used for a similar purpose. Historical records indicate that the ancient Chinese, Greeks, and Indians also used topical preparations of cannabis medicinally.
