Millions of Americans deal with some kind of skin concern. Whether it’s dry skin, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, eczema, or another ailment, these issues affect your appearance, comfort, and confidence. Using lotion provides a solution to these issues, remoisturizing your skin and restoring its feel and appearance. Cannabis lotion provides moisturizing relief with an additional beneficial ingredient. Here’s what you need to know.
What Is Cannabis Lotion?
Cannabis lotion is a type of topical cannabis product that combines the typical lotion ingredients with the active ingredients of cannabis (particularly THC and CBD). Many lotions use natural ingredients, such as fruit oils, rosemary, lavender, and others, to create a balanced and effective product.
How Does It Work?
With most cannabis products, you either inhale them or ingest them. Cannabis lotion, on the other hand, works a bit differently. Instead of putting it in your body, you put it on your body. The ingredients, including the cannabinoids in the product, absorb into your skin, where they go to work, providing you with the desired results.
Benefits of Cannabis Lotion
Cannabis lotion does more than moisturize your skin. It provides several significant benefits that keep your body’s largest organ healthy and beautiful.
Alleviating Symptoms of Psoriasis and Eczema
Studies show that cannabinoids help to stop the excess buildup of skin cells, a direct cause of psoriasis. Cannabinoids can also help to treat symptoms of eczema, including pain and inflammation. Cannabis lotion helps to improve the appearance of your skin, while also helping to improve your comfort.
Fighting Signs of Aging
A cannabis lotion may be a powerful tool to help you fight the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Part of the reason for this is because cannabis is an antioxidant, helping to boost your skin’s healing process while also preventing damage to your cells caused by free radicals. An infused lotion can help to restore a more youthful appearance to your skin while also helping to improve its overall health.
Treating Sunburns and Skin Irritation
Sunburns, bug bites, minor abrasions, and other skin irritations result in redness, inflammation, and swelling. Cannabis helps to fight inflammation and soothe your pain, allowing your skin to heal faster.
CBD in cannabis may help to regulate the amount of oil in your skin without drying it out. It also helps to alleviate inflammation caused by acne.
Does Cannabis Lotion Get You High?
The cannabinoids in cannabis lotions don’t penetrate deep enough into your skin to reach your bloodstream. As such, even those with a high amount of THC won’t get your high. You can use the lotion at any time of the day, and you don’t have to worry about any psychoactive effects. Instead, the cannabinoids connect to the CB receptors present in your skin to provide you with the relief you need.
Cannabis lotions revitalize your skin, restoring its health and beauty. Check out your local dispensary to see what products they have to offer. If you’re not sure where to start, a budtender can provide you with information about the various products and help you select ones that will work best for you.
