Four Ways to Use Cannabis as a Topical
Most often cannabis is smoked to achieve the desired effects – but that is only one of several methods that can be used, depending on your needs. For many, smoking, vaping or edibles provide exactly the needed effects – but for others it can also provide unwanted ones. Not everyone looking to benefit from marijuana are looking to get high – many medicinal users and even recreational consumers from time to time, turn to topicals for the benefits of cannabis, without the buzz.
There are many reasons that you may want to turn to cannabis topicals – and Evergreen Organix offers a variety of topical products to fit of these needs.
Surprisingly, cannabis offers a lot of benefits to those who choose to add it to their daily skin care routine. The plant is rich in antioxidants, and antioxidants are the key to protecting our skin from environmental damage (from sun, smoke, and other pollutants). Introducing antioxidants both speeds up the repairing process for skin and also protects against future damage – which is why cannabis skin care products are excellent natural alternatives to commercial anti-aging creams.
Menstrual cramps can range from very mild to excruciatingly severe – and every woman’s experience is different. In the past the only solution for pain from menstrual cramping was over-the-counter medications like Midol, but now many women are turning to a more natural solution. Cannabis topicals for menstrual relief come in many forms, to be used directly on the abdomen or even to be applied to tampons for more direct relief.
Speaking of pain relief, this is probably the most common use of cannabis topicals. Applying creams infused with THC to achy joints can reduce inflammation as they bind to cannabinoid receptors in the skin, which in turn reduces pain. THC is also known for having pain relieving effects, which paired with the anti-inflammatory properties, makes it an excellent option for those suffering from chronic pain.
One of the less spoken of uses for topical cannabis is becoming more popular in recent years – enhanced sexual experiences. Introducing cannabis topicals to your most sensitive areas can make an already pleasurable experience more intense due to an increased sensitivity. Overall, if you’re looking for a way to spice things up or make a special night more memorable, adding a cannabis topical designed for sensitive areas could be just what you’re looking for.
Evergreen Organix offers a variety of different THC infused topical cannabis products that covers each of these main uses including anti-aging skin cream, menstrual relief oil, pain relieving salve, and intimacy oil.
