What Is Cannabis Balm Used For?

The most common use of a cannabis balm is to help treat chronic pain. The cannabinoids found in this miracle plant are highly beneficial for normalizing brain and body communication. When you apply a balm topically, the cannabinoid receptors in your skin pick up on it. It then sends it back to your brain, creating a therapeutic response.

There are no psychoactive effects from ingesting the cannabis, you won’t feel ‘high’ or intoxicated when using a cannabis balm. This allows your body to reap all the benefits without feeling the mind-altering side effects of smoking or vaping marijuana. These balms can also be used to help with:

Cannabis topicals and edibles are the two most common ways to consume cannabis. While they both have their benefits, there are distinctions between the two forms of consumption that you should know when choosing how to use your balm. When using a topical, it is absorbed into the skin and distributed evenly throughout your bloodstream.

This means that the cannabinoids in the balm will be used to treat the whole body instead of targeting a specific part for relief.

Since cannabis balm is not digested like edibles, you’ll feel no intoxicating effects when using a topical. While this is good for some, it cannot be suitable for others if you’re looking to get high.

While topical use doesn’t make you feel high, it also has its drawbacks. First, the effects of the cannabis balm are inconsistent. This is because it relies on your bloodstream to distribute the cannabis throughout your body.

For example, if you have a cold or fever that is causing inflammation in your body, the blood will be diverted to other areas. This makes it so your localized area won’t receive as much of a benefit from the balm. Second, because topical use doesn’t enter your bloodstream directly, you can get an instantaneous response. The balm effects will take some time to build up and be felt.

This isn’t a bad thing if you’re using a cannabis balm to treat chronic pain or other conditions associated with long-term use. But it’s not ideal for anxiety, stress, or insomnia where an immediate response is required. Like topical use, edibles don’t make you high, but they also take some time to build up.

The longer you wait to eat an edible, the stronger it will be. This is because of how long it takes for your digestive system to break down the THC and CBD molecules into a form that can enter your bloodstream. The effects are felt immediately after eating the edible or drinking it and can last for several hours.

This makes edibles one of the safest options for treating conditions like chronic pain. This is because you know exactly how your body will react to it from start to finish.

While there is no THC or CBD cutoff for driving, most states have laws where you cannot possess more than a certain amount of cannabis.

The exact amount varies by state but generally ranges anywhere from 2-5 nanograms per milliliter of blood. Topical use has no psychoactive effects and the cannabinoids are absorbed into the skin. This means you’ll have very little to no active THC or CBD present in your bloodstream, making it legal and safe to use while driving.

There’s no point where you have any active THC or CBD going through your bloodstream when using a cannabis balm since they’re absorbed instantly into the skin. Edibles also won’t get you high due to the digestive process breaking down the THC and CBD into particles too small to enter your bloodstream.

Instead of being absorbed into your bloodstream, the THC and CBD in edibles are absorbed by cells in your stomach lining and begin their journey towards healing you from the inside out. Unfortunately, it can take up to 90 minutes for an edible to kick in, and the effects can last for several hours.

While you won’t feel high because of this, if you’re thinking about driving after eating an edible, plan to wait two hours before getting behind the wheel. The active THC and CBD in your bloodstream will be so low that it wouldn’t be enough to impair you, but due to the lack of research on the topic, it’s always better to err on the side of caution.

Topicals are a great way to relieve pain without psychoactive effects

It helps to treat inflammation, and skin conditions as well. Edibles offer a longer-lasting effect but can take up to an hour or two to kick in. If you’re looking for something that will work immediately, try smoking or vaping cannabis instead.

Both methods will deliver THC and CBD directly into your bloodstream to begin working their magic right away. If you plan on driving after consuming cannabis in any form, wait at least two hours before hitting the road. And if you have any doubts, it’s always best to give yourself more time to be safe.

From improved sleep to a boost in energy, these items can do wonders for how we feel from day-to-day.

In this blog post I’ll be discussing all of the top topical cures like bath salts as well as skin care products so that by the end you know exactly which ones are perfect for improving yours!

 

Body: As someone who has always been prone to acne breakouts (thanks genes!), it’s been a constant challenge to find products that not only keep my skin clear but have enough staying power throughout the day. With acne-prone skin, it’s important for me to use oil-free makeup and stay away from non water based foundations (they can lead to more breakouts).

 

Another thing I’ve done over the years is switch up how often I wash my face which seems like common sense, but most people don’t realize just how much their skin needs in order to look its best! For someone with oily or acne prone skin, washing your face too frequently will strip it of moisture causing excess sebum production so try using an exfoliant at least once a week. It may seem counterintuitive because you’re introducing harsh chemicals into the skin, but with the right formulation (read: gentle) exfoliants will help balance your oil production and remove dead skin cells which can lead to more breakouts.

 

A good facial moisturizer is also an essential part of a healthy routine because it locks in moisture that you might otherwise wash away when cleansing. Add on sunscreen for day time use or switch up what kind of lotion you’re using at night so that as soon as you wake up everything has been replenished! Keep reading to see how other topical cures like bath salts can improve your life too!
