A topical is a marijuana-infused oil, cream, salve, lotion or balm applied on the skin to provide therapeutic benefits for pain and inflammation. It is preferred by people who would like to avoid the psychoactive effects associated with other cannabis products as it does not reach the bloodstream but only penetrates to the system of CB2 receptors. Topical is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, itching, muscle soreness, tension, arthritis, pain and inflammation.
