At the mention of cannabis, we first think of its intoxicating properties, but there’s much more to this special plant than that. With ongoing research on this plant, we are slowly learning of its many capabilities and how it can be consumed and utilized for more than just stereotypical purposes.

We are beginning to understand more about terpenes, THC and other cannabinoids such as CBD and the effects they can have on our bodies and minds. While dried flower is noted as the most popular product category, there is a world of cannabis products that are yet to earn their deserved time in the spotlight, like topicals including the many cannabis and CBD lotions and creams at Stoney Creek.

What are CBD Topicals, and Where Can I Find Them in Stoney Creek

Cannabis topical products are intended for external application. That includes using these products on our skin, our hair, lips, or joints. These cannabis-infused products include cannabis creams, hemp lotions and oils that are infused with cannabis extracts that are rich in cannabinoids. Cannabis-infused topicals also contain other ingredients based on the nature of the product, like MCT oil or other botanicals like aloe vera, to help bring about the desired effects or relief.

Today CBD-infused products are available across cannabis product categories at your local Stoney Creek legal cannabis dispensary. If you’re in the Stoney Creek area, and are looking for these specific products, you can visit Elevated Minds and chat to knowledgeable budtenders, or place a pick-up or delivery order online. 

How Do CBD Topicals Work

Unlike other cannabis products, upon applying externally, cannabis and hemp creams and other topicals are absorbed through the skin. They then interact with our endocannabinoid system by binding with a network of cannabinoid receptors in our immune system causing us to feel effects locally or around the area where we applied the cannabis cream or lotion; this is unlike the psychoactive or physical effects that result from inhaling or ingesting cannabis products.

 

The Science Behind CBD Lotions and Creams

CBD or cannabidiol is one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is recognized for its non-psychoactive effects and numerous benefits, such as supporting and relieving pain, that studies continue to show. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant which is also known to contain lower quantities of THC.

CBD, as well as cannabis and hemp, lotions and creams are slowly earning their limelight in the skincare world for their range of skin-related benefits. In fact, studies have shown that CBD-infused topicals may help with skin-related diseases, acne, women’s health related issues, and more.

How to Use CBD, Cannabis and Hemp Creams, Lotions and Other Topicals in Stoney Creek

Like mentioned earlier in this blog, CBD creams and lotions are intended for external application. Depending on your needs or ongoing concerns, topicals can be applied directly to the affected area of the body. Most CBD creams and lotions are known to support surface to deep muscle-level pain relief.

Before using topicals, we recommend you start with a patch test. This is a precautionary step to see if you react to the hemp lotion or other topical product. It also helps to see if you develop any irritations. Although CBD itself is known to be safe, the additional ingredients may not work for everyone as every person’s skin is different.
