Why and How Topical Cannabis Works
When applying lotions and topical cannabis to the skin you are introducing a coating. This layer administers a consistent dose of medicinal cannabis to the affected area. These cannabinoids penetrate deep through the surface of our skin directly to the subdural Cb1 and Cb2 receptor sites on the nerve endings and at the base of the hair follicles. The receptor sites are soothed thus providing long lasting pain relief while reducing inflammation and redness.
THC: Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. The compound is a mild analgesic, and research has shown the compound has antioxidant activity. THC is believed to interact with parts of the brain normally controlled by the endogenous cannabinoid neurotransmitter, anandamide. Anandamide is believed to play a role in pain sensation, memory, and sleep.
CBD: Cannabidiol (CBD) is a major constituent of medical cannabis. Cannabidiol has been shown to relieve convulsion, inflammation, anxiety, cough, congestion and nausea, and it inhibits cancer cell growth. Recent studies have shown cannabidiol to be as effective as atypical antipsychotics in treating schizophrenia. Cannabis strains with a high amount of CBD may benefit people with multiple sclerosis, frequent anxiety attacks and Tourette syndrome.
CBN: Cannabinol (CBN) is a therapeutic cannabinoid found in Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. It is also produced as a metabolite, or a breakdown product, of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
CBC: Cannabichromene (CBC) is a cannabinoid that bears structural similarity to the other natural cannabinoids, it may play a role in the anti-inflammatory and anti-viral effects of cannabis, and may contribute to the overall analgesic effects of medical cannabis.
CBG: Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the Cannabis genus of plants. Cannabigerol is found in higher concentrations in hemp rather than in varieties of Cannabis cultivated for high THC content and their corresponding psychoactive properties
