Cannabis Topicals, Oils and Lotions – Welcome to the Dawn of Healthy Cannabis Alternatives

Cannabis has a variety of uses and benefits. How it is consumed or used is still rolling through an exploratory phase. The most common consumption method is often associated with smoking.

Unfortunately, if you weren’t aware, smoking any carcinogen is certainly bad for your health.

Yes, vaporizers can reduce smoke intake; but regardless, temperature controls are absent on many of the devices, and any smoke or vapor may be harmful.

Prefer to avoid the smoking and vaporizers? Today a variety of products exist that allow you to do just that. So, what options do we have when it comes to using cannabis products medically or recreational, besides eating or smoking cannabis products?

While topical creams and oils have been available for quite some time, the growing emergence of companies who are creating these topical infused cannabis creams is generating a new kind of buzz.

Welcome to the new era, where an assortment of cannabis infused topical creams, sprays, lotions, and oils are now available. THC and CBD absorbed through the skin offer a variety of medical properties unavailable with smoking and vaporizing. Apply lotions or oils specifically to areas of the body that require medical relief for acute and chronic pain and avoid the high that comes with THC.

A new market will dawn to scores of people who were once skeptical of using cannabis products. Though heavily unregulated by the Canadian Government, recreational users can find topicals by searching Google for mail order marijuana companies.   Health Canada suggests contacting an approved cannabis medical practitioner to order topical products the legal way.

Perhaps this will become the new miracle product for the most significant market demographic around the globe, baby boomers seeking healthier consumption alternatives.

Is it possible to use the CBD oils as topicals? or do you need a specially made cream? I guess what I’m asking is if both mediums have the same effect? thanks!

Hi Hogan,

CBD is typically known for being a higher receptor to skin tissue, when compared to THC. It is recommended to use CBD with high levels of concentration, if one were to apply it to an area of acute or chronic pain. There are some concentrated CBD topicals on the ‘open market’ all over the internet. Unfortunately, some of these products may still not be fully approved. As the Canadian government is still within its early stages of accessibility. A slow process, yes. But hopefully a reputable producer on the internet may be your solution. Always make sure to check reviews by other consumers to ensure some product validity.
