What are Cannabis Topicals?
Medical Cannabis is available in various forms, and patients who opt for Marijuana as a treatment also have many options available to them. MY FLORIDA GREEN is helping people become more aware and educated about how to access Medical Cannabis in Florida and exploring how topicals can be an effective option of consuming Cannabis for medicinal purposes.
Cannabis has two main chemical components; tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabis topicals include all salves, lotions, balms, and also oils that have THC or CBD infused within them, and these are designed to be applied to the skin. In addition to the salves, balms, and lotions, patches, sprays, and gels have proven to be effective as topical administration of Cannabis. Since the topical cannabis products are neither inhaled and processed by the lungs nor digested through the digestive tract, they are the most effective way of providing localized relief, having a much faster response, and providing rapid relief from symptoms.
How do the Cannabis Topical work?
We must look closely into the fundamentals of the endocannabinoid system before we can explore how Cannabis affects our bodies.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
ECS is a complex and intricate cell signaling system, referred to as the bridge between the mind and the body. This is involved in regulating a wide range of bodily functions, such as sleep, mood, appetite, to name a few. The endocannabinoid system has two central receptors, CB1 and CB2. When a person takes Cannabis through inhalation or digestion, the main component cannabinoids are absorbed through the CB1 and CB2 receptors. The CB1 and CB2 receptors are found throughout the skin, mainly in the epithelial cells and hair follicles.
Due to how the topical Cannabis interacts with the CB2 receptors. It results in a fast response in providing relief by reducing the symptoms because cannabinoids are absorbed directly by the receptors on the skin. CB2 receptors deal mainly with inflammation; hence, topical Cannabis gets in the person’s nervous system and intervenes with the inflammatory pathways. As a result, topical Cannabis is a highly effective treatment alternative for people suffering from inflammation. Many medical conditions have seen benefits from topical Cannabis, like arthritis. For example, as the topicals reduced inflammation in joints and provided a reduction in pain levels.
We have provided a safe and stable platform for people suffering from various medical conditions to have easy and secure access to topical Cannabis. The conditions which can be effectively treated with the topical Cannabis can include:

What are the Cannabis Topical Products?
Cannabis topicals include:
- Body balms’
- Transdermal patches.
All of the above Cannabis topical products are applied directly to the skin. It is done to treat deeper chronic and acute symptoms of muscle aches, also skin conditions, arthritis, chronic localized pain, and inflammations in the person’s body. The transdermal patches contact the venous regions of the body. Where the cannabinoids can directly enter the bloodstream and provide relief.
How are Topicals Produced?
To produce a cannabis topical product, the THC and CBD are extracted from the cannabis plant and isolated by eliminating the fats, chlorophylls, and other undesirable materials. The resulting extract is refined to distillate oil, and this oil is finally infused into cannabis topical products.
Moreover these products contain various combinations of TCC and CBD in different proportions. It should only be used after consultation with a Marijuana specialist.
