This is one of the safest ways to consume your medication and may be the best option for certain pains or ailments. Rubbing cannabis products on the skin will not result in a psychoactive effect.
Cannabis balms enter the skin and body tissues and allow for direct application to affected areas (e.g. allergic skin reactions, post-herpes neuralgia, muscle strain, inflammation, swelling, etc.).
* Cannabinoids in cannabis interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors that are found all over the body, including the skin.
* Both THC and Cannabidiol (CBD) have been found to provide pain relief and reduce inflammation.
* Topical cannabis use does not produce a psychoactive effect, which is different from eating or inhaling the medicine.
I wish I could tell you YES!
However our body chemistry varies depending on our environment and the foods we eat so it isn't a one cure fits all. However, it DOES work well on most pain that can be treated by anti inflammatory treatments. I have customers telling me it has been working great for their fibromyalgia, arthritis, neuropathy, nerve pain, menstrual cramps, headaches, migraines and regular aches & pains.
We use both Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter in our balms. Graininess in butter is fairly common. This is not a reflection of the quality of the balm, but merely a reaction to temperature fluctuations. It tends to be more of a problem during the summer months when products sit in hot trucks during shipping.
Crystallization (graininess) in our balms is due to the various fatty acids melting and cooling at different rates. This crystallization can occur immediately, or can appear months after the product has been made – especially if the product has experienced temperature variances during storage or transportation. If cooling occurs slowly, the fatty acids can crystallize into large clumps, causing graininess. If cooling occurs rapidly, a process known as tempering, the fatty acids will not have time to crystallize, creating a finished product which is smooth.
So it’s best to store your balm in a cool dry place. If you find your balm has gotten quite soft due to heat, it’s best to firm it up in the fridge right away then store it in a cool dry place. Never leave your balm in a hot car either!
