Marijuana Topicals and You

The Topicals Topic

 While the first thing many people may think of in regards to the marijuana industry is a bunch of people now allowed to get high, it has also made some amazing strides in the kinds of products available for medicinal usage even on the recreational side, several of which allow users to bypass any of the “high” aspect of using marijuana. Some edible companies are now producing CBD only edibles, with only a tiny amount of THC in them either to use as a catalyst to help enhance the CBD without enough to cause psychoactive effects, or for legal reasons, as dispensaries can only sell ingest-able products that contain THC because of food license sorts of things. Some companies can also do online ordering and shipping for CBD products that are made with hemp and have almost 0 THC content, usually in tincture form. I’ve used a few of these, and though I prefer more of a 1:1 ratio, they are still very helpful for pain and seizure relief, especially for people not looking for any kind of real intoxication.

There are also some very nice products available for topical relief if you’re not interested in ingesting something. I have used a few different lotions and salves, though my favorite is definitely the spray lotions, as you don’t have to use much and for muscle relief they can be very fast acting. Their speed seems to be the only real difference between sprays and lotions, though some of the thinner lotions are somewhat faster as well. Even though most of the lotions contain THC they don’t go into your blood stream, which can be a concern for some older customers just because of marijuana taboos that still very much exist. One of my coworkers had a grandmother that used it for her arthritis because smoking was not an option at her age, and there are now several more companies making these topical creams that there used to be so there are options for everything from pain relief to anti anxiety calming, all with quality ingredients you’d find in non-medicated lotion.

Another great option is trans-dermal patches, though these will go into your bloodstream so make sure not to get any with THC in them if that’s not what you’re looking for. These are pretty interesting because they can also give you options for taking more specific cannibinoids, some with all CBD, some with CBD and THCv, some with non activated THC, which can cause different effects than traditionally activated THC. Just for clarification, most THC in marijuana is actually THCa, which then turns into THC when activated by whatever heating element is used. The patches are time release and I’ve had them last between 8 and 12 hours, but you can also cut them into smaller pieces for multiple lesser uses.

These are just a few of the new options you can find in dispensaries for a little more relief than just average smoking, and there are always new products coming out. I’ve seen CBD medicated sugar for adding to drinks, bath salts that give crazy amounts of muscle relief and relaxation, even dog treats for arthritis. If you’ve been looking for something besides weed to maximize your relief, ask about some of these products, in my experience they are a fantastic thing to have on hand if you need a quick solution for pain.

The Anti-Aging Benefits of CBD Oil

Repair Wrinkles with CBD Oil

CBD oil has stepped into the spotlight as research continues to emerge revealing its many healing and anti-aging benefits, and lately it's being touted as the latest skin care miracle. More and more beauty experts are singing the praises of CBD, insisting that CBD reduces wrinkles and may even help repair them. Here’s what you need to know to improve the look of your skin and reduce wrinkles with CBD.

What is CBD?

CBD is a compound called a cannabinoid that occurs naturally in marijuana. Cannabinoids also occur naturally in the human body, and the brain has a set of receptors specifically used for detecting and reacting to cannabinoids. CBD is present in all marijuana, but some strains such as Charlotte's Web, are grown to maximize the CBD content while minimizing the THC content. While THC is psychoactive, CBD is not. Consuming CBD products or using them on the skin won't get you high. CBD is often sold as an oil. The CBD compounds are extracted from the marijuana and concentrated much like any other natural essential oil.

CBD oil is often blended into other products ranging from edibles to skin creams and lotions.

How CBD Reduces Wrinkles

CBD reduces wrinkles in a number of ways. CBD oil or CBD infused creams and lotions can be applied directly to your skin for deep moisturizing. CBD is an antioxidant so it also helps your skin fight damage caused by free radicals from things like UV radiation from the sun and cigarette smoke. This helps protect your skin’s smoothness and elasticity.

Another reason CBD reduces wrinkles is because it's a natural rejuvenator. CBD is known to help skin cells regenerate by aiding in the removal of dead skin cells and by encouraging new cells to grow. This gives your skin a healthier and more luminescent glow.

CBD reduces wrinkles even more when you make it a part of your diet in addition to applying it topically. Look for edibles labeled as CBD edibles, and be sure to ask about any THC content that might also be present in the product. You can also add CBD oil or hemp seed oil directly to your food. Just be sure the product is intended for consumption and not a topical formulation that might have added non-edible ingredients like dyes or perfumes.

Where to buy CBD

Wondering where to buy CBD in Denver? Well CBD is legal worldwide so you can actually buy CBD online. However, if you have questions and want some help to make sure you choose the right CBD product, you're best bet is to buy CBD in Denver at any one of the many medical or recreational dispensaries that carry it, which is most of them. Karmaceuticals, The Green Solution, Herbal Remedies Denver, Medicine Man Denver , and Livwell Franklin are among the many Denver dispensaries that sell CBD oil in Colorado. You can often find coupons for CBD on Cannasaver .

Look Good, Feel Good

CBD can help you look younger and feel more youthful. With its host of known health benefits and new applications being discovered everyday, CBD is definitely worth a try. If you want to reduce wrinkles and restore your body from the ravages of time, CBD should be at the top of your list.
