It’s no secret that cannabis can be used to alleviate chronic pain. A recent study states that over half of cannabis consumers use marijuana to treat a multitude of pain causing ailments. With more states legalizing cannabis, more people are turning to marijuana to provide an alternative to opiate or prescribed pain medications, and the cannabis industry is happy to deliver! Though cannabis is anti-inflammatory, many would rather forgo these therapeutic benefits due to its psychoactive properties. Thanks to the ever growing cannabis industry, cannabis users can have their cake and eat it too.
Topicals are a great way to reap the pain relieving and anti-inflammatory benefits of cannabis without feeling high. They provide localized relief and help with an array of ailments from muscle pain to arthritis and even some skin conditions.
