Marijuana 101: What are Topicals?

Updated: Sep 21, 2021

When I say the word “marijuana” what do you think of? A joint? Some buds? Stereotypes? Well, there is a lot more to marijuana than the average person thinks.

Here, at Ohio Marijuana Card, our job is not only to be the best medical marijuana card provider in the state but also to keep you informed. The more information that you have, the better you can treat your own medical condition. Knowledge is power and we’re here to give it to you!

There are so many more ways in which you can consume medical marijuana. The marijuana industry has come a long way. There are many new consumption methods so you can find the one that is right for you.

In today’s blog we will be going over what topicals are, what their benefits are and how you can get them in Ohio!

What are Topicals and their Benefits?

Topicals are marijuana-infused lotions, creams or oils that can be smeared over the skin in order to be absorbed into the body. While lotions, creams and oils are the most commonly used, topicals can also include patches, balms and much more!

There are many benefits to using cannabis topicals. The first benefit is that with topicals you can pinpoint your treatment easily. If you are experiencing chronic pain in a specific area such as your back or knee, you can localize your topical in that area to relieve the soreness and pain that you have.

Another great thing about topicals is that they have no psychoactive effects! This means that you can use marijuana topicals without experiencing the “high.” This is because topicals do not enter into your bloodstream. They simply just soak into the sink.

Topicals also are a good choice to try if you are looking for a consumption method that is a little bit more medical. In Ohio, you can purchase raw marijuana flower and consume it in a way that may feel a little bit more recreational than you would like. Topicals can make you feel more comfortable so that you don’t have to worry about ingesting any marijuana at all.

If you are taking a trip soon to your local dispensary to purchase topicals, you can keep an eye out for specific terpenes and cannabinoids that will specifically help you! You can look for strains like Blueberry, Blackberry Kush and Permafrost or use cannabinoids such as THC, CBD or THCA.

Topicals can also come with essential oils that may help you as well! Check out clove, wintergreen or cayenne if you’re looking for some extra relief.
