Cannabis is called “ma” in Chinese, which means “help, cannabis and numbness.” This definition is more than likely related to the fact that cannabis has been used since ancient times for the preparation of analgesics for intense procedures, such as surgeries.
Technically, the term analgesic refers to a medication that provides relief from pain without putting you to sleep or making you lose consciousness.CannabeeLi
New methods of cannabis consumption are bringing us further away from the notion that marijuana belongs solely in a bong or joint – or that it has to get you high, for that matter.
Cannabis-infused topicals are an example of how new modes of consumption are revolutionizing perceptions of marijuana as their accessibility, safety, and efficacy invite even the most unlikely patrons into the world of medical cannabis.
What are topicals?
Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Because they’re non-intoxicating, topicals are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods.
Other transdermal innovations are fast arriving in the cannabis market, including long-lasting patches and tingly lubricants for patients and recreational consumers alike.
