Our last post talked about the different types of topical cannabis to choose from. And in today’s post, we explore the 7 reasons you should use topical cannabis!

1. Topical cannabis reduces inflammation.

Let’s face it. We all experience inflammation in some form – that red, swollen, hot, and often painful feeling somewhere on your body because of an injury or infection. Topical cannabis, such as creams or salves, gets absorbed into the skin and causes localized pain relief. You can use it for sprains, twists and sprains, burns, swelling, muscle pain, insect bites and stings, and joint pain like arthritis.


2. Topical cannabis lessens pain.

Cannabis is known, mostly anecdotally, as a pain reliever. In fact, some people prefer cannabis to medications like Tylenol or Advil, which produce systemic pain relief. However, mounting scientific evidence shows that topical cannabis effectively treats chronic pain.

3. Topical cannabis is an antiseptic.

The cannabis plant has antiseptic powers. In fact, research shows that cannabinoids, like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), can kill the superbug, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).


4. Topical cannabis treats acne.

Science shows that at least one cannabinoid, CBD, may help prevent your skin from producing too much oil, which can cause acne. For an added boost to your acne treatment, look for topical cannabis products with proven acne-fighting ingredients, like salicylic acid.


5. Topical cannabis slows skin aging.

Like UV rays and pollution, free radicals damage the skin and cause fine lines and wrinkles. Antioxidants protect your skin from free radicals, and cannabinoids are potent antioxidants.

So, topical cannabis can protect your skin from harmful free radicals and slow down your skin’s aging process.

6. Topical cannabis helps treat spasticity.

Spasticity is an abnormal muscle tightness caused by prolonged muscle contraction. It’s usually seen in people with neurological conditions like cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, or stroke. Research shows that topical medical cannabis helps loosen muscle contraction.


7. Topical cannabis may reduce the size of cancer wounds.

Evidence suggests that topical medical cannabis may have the power to reduce malignant cancer wounds. In a case study of a 44-year-old man with a cancer wound, he saw a 5% decrease in wound size over 4 weeks of use.
