A Beginner's Guide to Using Cannabis Topicals for Pain Relief


Sponsored by Canna-Fusion

Are you thinking about using cannabis topicals for pain relief?

Research shows using infused creams, sprays, balms, and salves may treat a wide range of conditions.

If you’ve been suffering from sore, painful, inflamed joints or skin…

It’s high time to consider giving cannabis topicals a try.

What are Topicals?


Topicals are lotions or ointments applied directly to the skin.

What makes cannabis topicals so unique from other creams are the phytocannabinoids and cannabinoids present in the plant, particularly THC and CBD.

THC and CBD have been shown to:

  • Decrease Inflammation

  • Relieve Anxiety

  • Suppress Seizures

  • Reduce Nausea

  • Aid Sleep

  • Relieve Pain

  • And so much more!

In fact, research shows CBD and THC are both powerful pain relievers. When used externally, topicals target pain at the source.

While THC is responsible for producing the mind-altering effects cannabis is so well known for…

Using THC topically will not make your feel high.

Instead, your skin will be able to absorb all of the potential body boosting benefits, such as decreased inflammation and pain relief.

Why Use Cannabis Topicals?


You might be wondering…

Why are cannabis topicals so effective and how can they help you?

One of the reasons cannabinoids in cannabis (like THC and CBD) are so game changing has to do with the endocannabinoid system, or ECS.

The ECS is a biological system that’s primarily role is to maintain homeostasis.

Or, in other words, balance.

This unique system not only processes cannabis, it has also shown to impact nearly every major function in the human body.

But that’s not all!

A growing number of scientific studies show supporting our endocannabinoid system may be a key step to preventing and treating disease.

If you’re experiencing inflamed or irritated skin...

Cannabis topicals target tough spots at the source.

Simply apply the salve for immediate, localized relief.
