Frequently Asked Questions About Cannabis Topicals

What is topical marijuana?

Topical marijuana products are lotions, creams, gels, patches or oils that are infused with THC, CBD or THC/CBD marijuana distillate. Topicals are produced in a variety of potencies and can include ingredients such as arnica for cooling, soothing sensations immediately upon application, shea butter to provide deep hydration, or can even include encapsulation methods to produce systemic effects.

How does cannabis lotion work?

The endocannabinoid system can be found throughout the human body, including in the skin.

Traditional cannabis topicals such as lotions and gels are infused with marijuana distillate. When applied topically, the fat-soluble THC and CBD are absorbed into the top layers of the skin, providing localized effects. Because of the fat-solubility of cannabinoids, they are unable to penetrate the watery bloodstream.

What is a marijuana transdermal topical?

Transdermal marijuana topicals work by allowing cannabinoids to penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream. This is achieved by encasing the cannabinoids in a water-soluble shell that bypasses the fatty upper layers of the dermis to reach the bloodstream for systemic (full-body) effects.

Do I need THC or CBD topicals for pain?

Topicals with 1:1 ratios of THC/CBD are ideal for pain relief. THC is known to be an analgesic compound, while CBD is anti-inflammatory. When paired together, they work in tandem to potentially address the sensation of pain and the cause of it.

Can CBD be absorbed through the skin?

Yes! When CBD is absorbed topically it does not enter the bloodstream, but rather connects with nearby cannabinoid receptors in the skin. Transdermal products, on the other hand, are encased with a shell in order to penetrate the bloodstream for systemic (full-body) effects.

What kind of cannabis topical is best for arthritis?

Arthritis is inflammation that causes pain within the joints and, unfortunately, is incredibly common. Because CBD is an anti-inflammatory compound and THC an analgesic (pain reliever), a 1:1 THC/CBD ratio is recommended to target the sensation of pain and the root cause of it.

What is the best topical cream for eczema?

Cannabis-infused topicals are a possible solution for those with eczema due to the properties THC and CBD have exhibited - they have shown to be powerful anti-inflammatory compounds as well as antimicrobial and anti-itch. Marijuana topicals that have additional hydration such as shea butter are recommended for eczema.

Does topical THC show in urine?

While topical THC products do not show up in urine, transdermal products may as they enter the bloodstream.

Will CBD cream show up in urine test?

While topical CBD products do not show up in urine, transdermal products may as they enter the bloodstream.

Are there side effects to using CBD cream?

Topically applied CBD has not shown to produce side effects. If you have a reaction when applying a CBD topical, this may be caused by another ingredient in the product.

What type of marijuana topical is best for sports injuries?

Marijuana topicals with high doses of both THC and CBD are ideal for sports injuries. THC has shown to be an effective analgesic, targeting the sensation of pain, while CBD addresses inflammation. Additional ingredients such as arnica, like in MÜV Sports Gel, are beneficial as they provide immediate relief as the cannabinoids penetrate the skin.

Are there other uses for cannabis topicals besides pain?

There are many uses for cannabis topicals including eczema, inflammation, acne, and skin cancer (in the case of topically applied RSO - learn more about the potent extract here).

What is the best marijuana topical?

Topicals range from creamy and hydrating, gel-based and easy to spread, or even transdermals.
