Marijuana Dispensary Explains How Cannabis-Infused Topicals Work, Airway Heights, Washington

As the legalization of recreational and medical marijuana becomes more widespread, new research continues to emerge touting the plant’s health benefits. One of the most commonly cited reasons for marijuana usage is pain relief, with a comprehensive Harvard-led peer review of 28 studies finding the plant effective in treating chronic and neuropathic pain. That’s why Toker Friendly in Airway Heights, WA, suggests marijuana topicals for customers seeking relief from pain, soreness, and inflammation. Here, this marijuana dispensary explains how these cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils work. 

The flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant contain compounds called cannabinoids. These components give the marijuana plant its ability to address a myriad of maladies, from migraines and seizure disorders to cancer treatment and chronic pain.

The two most well-known cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Topicals sold at marijuana dispensaries are often made with CBD, the most medically active of the two compounds. Since they are non-psychoactive, these products can be sold in all 50 states, providing the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the THC-induced euphoria.

marijuana-dispensary-airway-heights-waMarijuana topicals are typically made by infusing cannabis flowers in a high-quality oil, such as coconut or olive oil. This extracts the active compounds, which are then blended with therapeutic herbs and essential oils.  

Your body produces its own cannabinoids through an endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in detecting and regulating functions like pain, appetite, and memory. This makes marijuana topicals particularly effective, as the CBD elevates natural levels of pain-relieving endocannabinoids.

To ensure you’re using a product containing high-quality cannabinoids, visit Toker Friendly. This marijuana dispensary is a one-stop shop for recreational and medical marijuana, carrying a wide variety of strains grown using safe practices.
