Choosing the right cannabis topical is up to you, but here’s a set of best practices for applying your cannabis infused topical of choice.

Cannabis is not a panacea, but it can be quite helpful. Don’t expect a lifetime of arthritis to suddenly feel like nothing, or for old war wounds to subside entirely. Rather, prepare for subtle, innocuous relief alongside other sensations depending on the concentration of other soothing ingredients in your topical. Just like a heating pad or IcyHot, cannabis topicals don’t necessarily cure our ailments, they simply make them more bearable.

1. Determine where to apply your topical

After you’ve sufficiently cleaned and dried the affected area, generously apply your cannabis topical. You don’t need to bathe in it, but doing a second or third application is not uncommon. With every application, vigorously massage and rub the topical into your skin. Do not apply too much pressure as to exacerbate your discomfort, but be firm and don’t be shy about a second pass.

If you don’t have any specific nagging areas to focus on, try adding some topical relief to these common sore spots (or, better yet, get your significant other to massage them for you):

Topicals come in a variety of forms. Some are moisturizing lotions made for every day use while others are balms, salves, liniments, or ointments designed to produce hot or cold sensations alongside their beneficial botanical and cannabis chemistry.

CBD has lots of potential skin care benefits:

CBD topicals include creams, lotions, salves, balms, serums, massage oils, and more. They are sometimes designed for a particular use, such as face products, lip balms, and pain-relieving products.

CBD Skin Care Benefits

Itching. CBD can block itching in the nerve endings and has been shown to help chronic, treatment-resistant itching.

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) governs many functions in the human body, including the ability to process pain, sleep, inflammation, mood, and more. The cannabis plant—both marijuana and hemp—contains phytocannabinoids that interact with the ECS, including CBD oil found to reduce inflammation and intensity of pain.

Acne. Acne is mostly caused by hormones, but CBD helps fight the inflammation related to acne’s redness and swelling, and helps normalize skin.
