How Topicals Work:
Cannabis topicals are ancient medicine – used for centuries to treat pain, inflammation, and skin conditions.
Cannabinoids (e.g., THC and CBD) are the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that provide relief to an array of symptoms. These work by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids. When applied directly to skin, the cannabinoids bind to receptor sites throughout the body, CB2 receptors. Our CB2 receptors activate to regulate immune function and inflammation without producing the “high” typically associated with smoking or ingesting the plant.
