Cannabinoids combined with a penetrating topical cream can enter the skin and body tissues and allow for direct application to affected areas (e.g. allergic skin reactions, post-herpes neuralgia, muscle strain, inflammation, swelling, etc.). Both THC and Cannabidiol (CBD) have been found to provide pain relief and reduce inflammation. Topical cannabis use does not produce a psychoactive effect, which is different from eating or inhaling the medicine. Topicals may produce anti-inflammatory and analgesic or pain relief effects. Dr. Jolly's offers several types of topicals made by Oregon producers.
