10 Potential Benefits of Topical Marijuana

Published: January 25, 2023

If you have never used topical marijuana, including creams, salves, and lotions made with THC, CBD, or both, you are missing out. Topical marijuana has numerous beneficial properties that have been used by cultures worldwide for centuries to help reduce pain, heal skin, and more.

Marijuana has myriad uses, and now there are so many options to choose from. Below are some of the top (and most common) uses we have found. 

1. Can Help Reduce Acne

Acne is common for most people at some point in their life. Topical marijuana extracts are rich in anti-inflammatory substances that calm the skin, plus antioxidants and vitamins that have shown promising results for reducing acne. Topical marijuana may also help flush away various bacteria that cause acne to occur in the first place.

2. Pain Relief

The marijuana plant is known to relieve pain and calm inflammation. This is the case for both CBD and THC marijuana topicals. THC is a painkiller, as is CBD, and both have anti-inflammatory effects. For instance, if you have sore muscles from working out or joint pain, a topical THC and CBD cream might be precisely what you need to help relieve the pain and reduce inflammation. Some people also use THC extracts and salves to help treat headaches, migraines, and other forms of pain. 

3. Anxiety Reduction

Cannabis slows the central nervous system, lowers your heart rate, and helps promote deep relaxation and restful sleep. Marijuana products may help you relax and slow down in any form, but for ultimate relaxation, try a long bath with the Lavender Rosn Bath Bomb infused with THC and CBD. 

4. Topical Marijuana Can Help Reduce the Visible Signs of Aging

Topical marijuana may also help reduce the visible signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and scars. Marijuana’s antioxidants attack and destroy the free radicals (which are what age skin and can lead to disease), and the vitamins in cannabis assist by tightening the skin, making it plumper and shinier. Healthier, clear skin makes everyone look younger.

5. CBD Salve Can Help Reduce Sunburn Pain

Sunburns can be painful and long-lasting, and having too many of them can lead to skin cancer. A sunburn of any degree of severity needs to be treated immediately and daily until it goes away. The CBD in topical marijuana will help with the pain, and the oil in the product will moisturize your skin. Salves, creams, and oils with marijuana will also reduce the redness and speed up the healing time.

6. It Can Help Reduce Arthritis and Joint Pain

Arthritis is not just for older individuals; most active people have endured a sports injury or a fall resulting in joint swelling and perhaps residual pain. Due to its anti-inflammatory healing properties, topical marijuana may help reduce swelling, pain, and inflammation. 

7. THC Lotions Help Moisturize Skin

Topical marijuana is almost always included in a lotion, oil, or salve, so it tends to be very moisturizing and soothing. Everyone has experienced dry skin, which can hurt and lead to skin cracking and bleeding. A quality THC lotion, blend of oils, or salve can help keep your skin smooth and supple in winter when the air is dry, and your heat is running. 

8. CBD Creams May Help Reduce Psoriasis and Eczema

CBD creams can help relieve itchiness and relieve redness, and dryness, which are also issues many people with psoriasis and eczema suffer from. 

9. Topical Marijuana Can Help Heal Wounds

Topical marijuana can help heal wounds and relieve pain, especially if it has CBD. 

10. Marijuana Topicals Can Help Increase Sexual Pleasure

Marijuana topicals may help enhance sexual pleasure, according to studies that show how THC and CBD affect the brain to make sex more pleasurable. At the same time, cannabis topicals made with oils can also be used as a sexual lubricant.

Cannabis alone is unlikely to harm or irritate your skin, but always check ALL ingredients before trying any new THC, CBD, or other products, especially if you have sensitive or problematic skin. Before trying a new product, test a small skin patch to ensure you don’t have a reaction.
