Cannabis can be used treat a variety of ailments by topical application. Topical medicines are absorbed through the skin to affect a targeted area. Applying a cannabis preparation to the skin usually does not affect brain receptors and has no effect on cognition or memory. Skin disorders, in particular, do well with topical cannabis. Eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, pruritis (itching) and even skin infections have been reported to improve with topical cannabis. Marijuana may also be used topically for stopping migraines, headaches or pain.
Topical cannabis is an excellent pain reliever because it stimulates localized THC and CBD receptors throughout our bodies. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory by stimulating circulation. The massage oil is not only good for a body rub, but has taken pain and swelling away from arthritic joints. Topical alcohol rubs are ideal for arthritic joint pain or sore muscles. Salves may be used anywhere you would use a first-aid ointment. You can use it for cuts and scrapes, infections and dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and bruises.
