Why Cannabis Topicals? By Rhea Graham

Cannabis “topicals” are Smokeless Cannabis Remedies that are applied to the skin and can provide near-instant relief from pain. Different topicals are used for a variety of conditions. The best part about topicals is that they can be used most anywhere and they don’t get you high, which alleviates a fear of using Cannabis for many. Topicals can be made in virtually any strength.

Cannabis salve is probably the most versatile topical used. When made with proper ingredients, it can be used anywhere on the body for pain, bringing relief for headaches, backaches, toothaches and hemorrhoids to name a few. Different salves are made to address certain pains, such as root balm for nerve pain (neuropathy).

Cannabis liniment is a great Smokeless Remedy to have in your medicine cabinet. Liniment is Cannabis infused into alcohol and is applied topically. It is used for a number of conditions, and all of those conditions are painful. The first use that comes to mind is for herpes simplex and herpes zoster; cold sores and shingles by more common names. When you feel a cold sore coming on, applying liniment will stop it in its tracks. If it does come on, the blister will only last a day or so. With shingles, you put the liniment on the affected area and then apply a good Cannabis salve over it and they are done and dried out in a day as well. Cannabis will kill the herpes virus, given the chance.

Liniment is also used for excruciating pain, such as a broken bone. Not only will it reduce the swelling, practically in front of your eyes, it will get rid of the pain involved. Saturating the area will get rid of bone pain for days.

Massage oil is a favorite remedy of mine. It can be taken to your massage therapist to be used on you. A variety of oils are used; some to help the medicine into the skin and some to help the oil glide for a smoother massage. The relief you feel after a Canna Massage as compared to a non-medicated one is quite significant!
