Topical administration of cannabis in the form of creams, lotions, patches, sprays, salves and even lip balms has been used to alleviate muscle pain, joint pain, and skin irritation.
Cannabis infused topical lotions, massage oils and transdermal patches are excellent for patients who are experiencing extreme muscular or nerve pain, poor circulation, muscle spasms and dystonia, arthritis and even seizures.
Because these lotions are absorbed through the skin they do not get you high but rather provide a tremendous amount of relief. Skin disorders, in particular, do well with topical cannabis. Eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, pruritus (itching) and even skin infections have been reported to improve with topical cannabis.
Cannabis may also be used topically for stopping migraines, headaches or pain.
Topical rubs are ideal for arthritic joint pain, sore muscles, nerve pain, cuts and scrapes, infections and dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and bruises.
