Which Cannabis Topical Is Right For You?



Cannabis topicals can be used to relieve joint pain, relax muscles and much more. Topicals such as lotions, balms, salves and oils are absorbed through the skin for localized pain relief, from soreness to inflammation, without producing psychoactive effects. Cannabis topicals can be used to treat a variety of qualifying conditions, but how do you know which one is right for you?

Cannabis Patches

Transdermal pain patches are one form of topical marijuana found in Ohio dispensaries. Similar to an IcyHot patch, the adhesive application provides relief to a focused area on the body and can be discreetly worn under clothing. These patches can be purchased in a single dose or in packs of three or more. Patients also have the option to buy them in different dosages. For example, for more pain relief, one might consider a higher THC percentage to treat the area, instead of a 1:1 THC to CBD patch.

Cannabis-Infused Lotions and Salves

Lotions and salves can be used to treat muscle pain or soreness. These topicals can be found in a variety of ratios, some with a higher THC content than others, to provide the right amount of relief to the patient. Dispensaries in Ohio offer lotions and salves in a variety of portion sizes, so if you need to take some on the go, it's available to you at any time!

Cannabis Lip Balms

This product is new to Ohio dispensaries. The cannabis oil found in the lip balm helps your lips rebuild the natural oil barrier that prevents moisture loss and keeps them hydrated. This topical can be found at most Ohio dispensaries ranging from $12-$14.

Cannabis topicals remain a popular choice for medical marijuana patients in Ohio due to the convenience and ability to discreetly use the products. When patients use topicals, they do not experience psychoactive effects, or feel "high", from usage since the cannabis oils are absorbed through the skin. The usage of cannabis topicals is yet another way patients can find relief to treat their chronic conditions without having to experience any unwanted effects.
