Cannabis Topicals for Date Night

It’s February. Time to shave your legs/face/whatever, get gussied up and spend some time with someone you love, or if you’re single, to find someone you can love.

But what does this have to do with cannabis topicals? Well I’ll tell you! I’m going to do my best to suggest ways cannabis bath & body products can benefit your going out ritual and maybe if we’re lucky, I’ll have some “next day” tips for you.

I’m not sure about you but I like to work selfcare into my going out routine. If I’m really lucky, I can spend almost all day getting ready for a night out. That’s the sort of day where I’d be luxuriating in a cannabis bath, putting my hair in rollers, doing the false lashes and of course the carefully selected outfit. Don’t judge, I sometimes like a movie montage starring myself ??‍♀️

To receive the full effects of a cannabis bath, I recommend the euphoric bath salts or bath bomb and soaking for an hour. Your body will feel super relaxed and your skin will be so soft that your date might get a little touchy with you. Wine or a joint in the tub is optional but not recommended for the beginner. You need to know how things affect you before you start mixing, trust me. I’ve heard stories!

For added softness you can use my cannabis sugar scrub. It’s formulated to dissolve in the water so you won’t have grit in your bath. I made the mistake of using another brand’s scrub in the bath. It felt like a day at the beach, and not in the good way. The scrub can also be used in the shower (which is how I prefer using it) but you could also do a dry scrub before your bath or shower, it’s all up to you. Either way, it’s going to help boost your circulation and slough off old skin cells and tough grime.

Shower fans: don’t forget about the cannabis bodywash and soaps! I find the bodywash just washes away my aches. Sometimes I wash an area twice to get the tougher aches out. I usually just use the bar soap on my hands but I have noticed it soothes any minor cuts as well as makes my skin baby soft. Either will be an excellent addition to your prep, especially if you have some pain or expect some by the end of the night. A little preventative always helps me get through a night out.

One of my favorite skincare/selfcare hacks

Protip for those of you with dry skin, I like to use my regular strength pain relief oil as a body oil. It makes my skin feel really nice. I also love my chamomile headache roller on zits. I’ve noticed that in some cases, I can put this on before bed and the zit is gone in the morning. I’ve even been known to use the chamomile pain relief oil on my face before bed. It makes my face feel relaxed and I’ve noticed a brighter complexion and soft skin. I don’t recommend this with all of my products though. The chamomile with the cannabis seems to be the most effective for my skin problems. I even use the chamomile headache roller on cystic pimples. It stops the pain and has made quite a few of them run their course faster for me.

After you’ve relaxed and soothed your body with a shower or bath, you should be in a pretty good mood for your date. I really hope you get some action! ?

So that leads me to after care…. if you did something stupid (roller skating, weird positions, trip over your shoes, some weird activity you’re way too out of shape for… etc) during your date, you might need another cannabis bath (if it was a weird sex injury to reduce your awkward inflammation) or some of my pain relief balm or oil (if it resulted in bruising or pulled muscles of the non genital variety) to help you get back on your feet.

Protip: the balm works great on an aching jaw and sore muscles. Just saying….

As you can see, cannabis topicals can be easily incorporated into any lifestyle. I highly recommend you give them a shot if you live with a chronic pain condition or you’re just chronic. ?

Get your feet summer ready!

Are your feet sandal ready?

Summertime always is terrible for your feet. Some of us hide the fact we don’t tend to our toes on the regular by wearing sneakers that make your feet smell but the rest of us embrace the sandals! In order to do that, your feet must be looking their finest so prepare for some cannabis infused tips to get your feet looking and feeling great!

If your feet are looking extra dry, you might want to exfoliate with a Cannabis Sugar Scrub to reveal a the baby soft skin waiting to meet the sun! The cannabis with soothe your tired achy feet while the sugar gently scrubs the dirt and dead skin to make your feet look fresh and clean!

If your feet are exceptionally bad, I suggest a soak with some of our bath salts followed by the cannabis scrub. You could even scrub while soaking as the sugar will dissolve in the water so won’t leave grit in the tub.

If you’ve got badly cracked heels, I recommend to follow it up with some Pain Relief Balm. The balm has some really good moisturizing ingredients and the cannabis soothes and hydrates your skin. I’ve been hearing from customers that it works great for replenishing the lost moisture that can cause dry cracked heels, plus the cannabis helps restore the damaged skin.

You can even use cannabis soaps for regular washings to help maintain those tender toes. If you like to shower at night, then the soap might also wash away some minor aches and pains from the day as it’s very soothing. From soaps to soaks to balms to scrubs, we’ve got everything you need to make your feet happy…. except for maybe some sensible shoes. You’re on your own there! ?

Topical Oil Beauty Hacks

Generally I use the Pain Relief Oil on my legs for the aches and pains that come from standing all day or from the aches I get from wearing any shoe with a higher heel than my sneakers. To be honest I wear slippers most of the time like I’m your 90 year old grandma but of course I make it look cool. ?

I have friends that use it on their sore aching knees since it’s easier to apply on larger body parts than the balm. The liquid application makes it easier to apply on larger surface areas such as hips and of course it’s great for a full back massage! I’ve recently decided to start experimenting with the oil to see if I could find any other uses besides massage and these are the beauty hacks I’ve discovered!

Inner Thigh Chafing

I don’t know about you but I certainly don’t have a thigh gap to prevent my luscious lady thighs from rubbing together and causing uncomfortable friction when I wear dresses & skirts without hosiery or shorts underneath. This becomes painful in a very short amount of time depending on the weather and activity level.

One day I decided to wear a skirt to run to the store even though my all my bike shorts were dirty. I figured I’d try the oil on my thighs to see if that would make my quick trip to the store less painful than the last time I went out without an added layer of protection. I am happy to say it worked!

Total summertime game changer! Yesterday my friend Lizzie tried it at work and thanked me profusely for my suggestion. I’m thrilled my friend made it through the day without the burning rubbing feeling you get from too much inner thigh friction for eight hours.

So just rub the oil on the insides of your thighs before heading out for the day. The oil will keep your skin from getting dry so there will be less friction and of course the cannabis will help calm any pain that occurs.

After Shave For Ladies

Have you ever forgotten to shave your legs during your shower/bath and chose to just do a quick dry shave so you could still wear those shorts or skirt you picked out for the day?

Then you know just how raw and uncomfortable your legs will be feeling for hours afterwards. I’ve discovered that our Pain Relief Oil not only calms that right down but it also moisturizes your poor skin so you can go back to just worrying about whether or not your skirt is too short for your activity level. Just apply the oil after your quick dry shave to soothe your skin and reduce the irritation.

Sunburn Relief

This one might not be strictly a beauty hack but I feel like the redness and peeling you get from sunburns definitely affects your self confidence so close enough. ??‍♀️

Over the summer I tried applying the peppermint scented Pain Relief Oil on my sunburn thinking the cooling sensation of the peppermint would help ease my pain & discomfort. I didn’t experience any cooling sensation on my burn but it did end up calming the pain. I had to use a lot to calm the pain at first and I did notice my skin never got that tight over cooked feeling I generally associate with bad sunburns so that was pretty great.

The biggest thing I’ve noticed (along with a few friends who tried based on my recommendation) was that the burn healed faster than expected and my skin never went into the peeling phase.

I found this more effective than some of the cooling aloe gels I’ve tried in the past where I’d be reapplying more than recommended for relief only to still end up peeling and gross. I do think I should eventually develop a cooling formula for sunburns but the regular stuff works in a pinch. ??

Have you discovered any other beauty hacks with our Pain Relief Oil? Please share them on our social media or in the comments below! We’d love to hear your secrets! ??

Corona virus and cannabis topicals?

Sorry, cannabis is not going to cure you or prevent you from getting the Corona-19 virus but they can make you feel a bit better if you get hit.

The BC Center for disease control states “The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses, including the flu and common cold. They include cough, sneezing, fever, sore throat and difficulty breathing.” However a local medical professional has given me a bit more details than that. Sore throat and a dry cough are the signs that the hospitals were told to look out for in cases of suspected Covid-19.

Definitely not me. There is no Covid-19 exposure at The Rad Scientist Topicals as of today! ??

Topicals can’t help with coughing, sneezing, fever and difficulty breathing but a cannabis balm with eucalyptus rubbed on your sore throat can help ease your discomfort. All of our extra strength balms contain eucalyptus so you can get some of the benefits even if you hate the smell of plain eucalyptus.

Our cannabis balm could help any chapped skin from excessive nose blowing or wiping. It can also provide localized pain relief for sore achy muscles.

If you find you’re getting headaches and sinus pain, then reach for one of our headache rollers! Eucalyptus is extra beneficial as it can help clear airways but any of our scents can help with headaches.

If baths are more your thing, our Euphoric Bath Collection has some great treats for those tired aching muscles. It’s a total game changer if you’ve been coughing so hard your back and/or abs hurt since you can treat the pain while relaxing in the tub before bed. You get the pain relief plus the added benefit of super soft skin and I don’t know about you but I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love soft skin!

Don’t forget: nothing can replace acetaminophen to stop a fever. I’ve been told ibuprofen & other nsaids make the symptoms worse but acetaminophen works best for fevers so why take the chance? It sounds like it’s similar to the flu and it’s mainly the elderly at risk so keep your kids away from grandma as she would be higher risk for pneumonia can follow.

Remember to wash your hands and try not to touch your face while in public. Stay healthy, stay safe friends and of course share your favorite topical tips in the comments! We’d love to hear them!

Cannabis topicals and dry skin

I’ve been hearing how skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis respond well to cannabis topical products. Both conditions share similar symptoms of dry, flaky or even scaly skin so just imagine how well it will work on your dry knees and elbows!

Our cannabis sugar scrub is awesome for exfoliating any rough spots or even as a pretreatment to

You could try one of our soaps or bodywash for daily cleansing to keep those dry patches away with the moisturizing power of cannabis. I’ve had the customer feedback that the cannabis soaps & bodywash are good for eczema so they will do wonders with regular dry skin.

The cannabis bath bombs are also known for softening skin so you can treat your whole body for relaxation and relief while soaking your cares away. You might want to use the scrub to get rid of the flakes before or after or evening during your bath as the sugar will dissolve in the water so you won’t have grit at the bottom of the tub.

If your dry patches are extra stubborn, you can follow up with the powerful moisturizing properties of the Pain Relief Oil or Pain Relief Balm. I’ve heard from customers that the balm is strong enough to penetrate the scaly flaky skin caused by eczema and it’s also really good as a moisturizer. I’ve used it that way many times myself.

If your troubles are dry skin, we can definitely help with that. If it’s a skin problem like dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis, there’s anecdotal evidence indicating cannabis might be beneficial for you but of course every body is different. I use a lot of cannabis topical products and my skin loves me for it! Maybe it’s time to make your skin happy again?
