What are cannabis topicals and how do they work?

Flow CBD Deep Tissue & Joint Gel by Fairwinds

Available in: Washington

Every jar of Fairwinds’ potent Flow CBD Gel contains 146mg CBD to 4mg THC, with a cannabidiol delivery time of only five minutes. We love its fast-acting effects on joint pain and sore muscles and always keep it on hand after a tough workout or long day.

Mary’s Medicinals CBN Patch

Available in: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, Washington

Releasing controlled doses of cannabinoids, Mary’s Medicinals’ award-winning Transdermal Patches are the perfect product for discreet cannabinoid intake. We love that Mary’s is one of the few producers leveraging the benefits of lesser-known cannabinoids, and we like using the CBN patch just before bedtime.

Foria Pleasure

Available in: California, Colorado

Foria is the ultimate product when combining cannabis and intimacy. A THC-infused coconut spray, Foria Pleasure should be on everyone’s nightstand to enhance sensitivity and touch as things start to get heated between the sheets.

Hemp Seed Lip Balm by Marley Natural

Available: Nationwide

Marley Natural’s deeply moisturizing Hemp Seed Lip Balm contains a blend of rich oils, vitamins, and a hefty dose of hemp to bring you the softest lips possible. We love its smooth texture, and always keep a spare tube in our pockets year-round for dry winter weather and sizzling summer days.

Canis by Washington Bud Company

Available in: Washington

With whole-plant ingredients to bolster a therapeutic entourage effect, Washington Bud Company’s muscle-soothing Canis is a potent roll-on that can help address inflammation, pain, headaches, and numerous other ailments. We’ve been rolling it across tight muscles to help our bodies relax after exertion.

Releaf Balm by Papa & Barkley

Available in: California

Containing a 3:1 THC:CBD ratio, the relieving and moisturizing Releaf Balm by Papa & Barkley has been making an appearance in our gym bags and bathroom cabinets. We especially love its combination of 400mg of cannabinoids and botanicals for an all-natural formula that penetrates deep.

Also featured in:

Field Balm by Physic

Available in: Oregon

All Physic topicals are 100% vegan, which means no beeswax or animal products are used in their pain-reducing Field Balm. With the addition of the soothing arnica flower, Field Balm is perfect for skin conditions like eczema and mild irritations, as well as general pain relief. We’ve been slathering it on burns, bruises, and joints for a pure and natural way to soothe our aches.
