Jul 14, 2017 Heather McWilliams Comments Off on What are the Best Strains for Topical Anti-Age Skin Treatments?
Cannabis topicals are fast becoming one of the most effective treatment solutions for anti-aging and other skin conditions. In some states where cannabis has been legalized, there are various spas that have been opened which make use of cannabis infused masks, scrubs and even cannabis massages. Patients who have been using topicals for years have praised the effect cannabis topicals have had on improving the look of their skin.
Topicals are what you and I would consider as ointments and salves which are applied onto the skin of the user. You probably know that the skin is the human body’s largest organ, and the skin will of course absorb any substance which is put on to it. Research has identified that hair follicles and sweat glands have CB1 and CB2 receptors, where cannabinoids which are found in cannabis bind to in order to administer their effect. Because they bind to these receptors, they don’t find their way into the bloodstream. This means they won’t get high from the cannabis topical.
If you are making your own cannabis topical, it is vitally important to choose the right strain. We have found that a CBD to THC ratio of 1:1 can provide the best results. This is because CBD can reduce the chances of paranoia and confusion which can result if you use a strain that has a high concentration of THC.
Harlequin is quite a popular marijuana strain that many topical users have been drawn to. It’s easy to grow this strain in your house, because it is quite small and produces bushy buds, so it doesn’t need as much room as other strains. Suzy Q is another strain to use for a topical, as it has a 30% CBD concentration. ACDC is another strain to take a look at.
Whatever strain you decide to proceed with, it will require a period of experimentation as you try to search for a strain that produces the therapeutic effect you are looking for. This is because some strains will have more of an effect on some compared to others. If you have never used cannabis topicals before, we would recommend avoiding strains which have a high concentration of THC, as it is important to build up a tolerance to THC before using it on a regular basis.
If you would like some advice on what strain to go for, we would recommend that you speak with your local dispensary. They will be able to make a personal recommendation based on your condition. You can search for your nearest dispensary by using the dispensary near me tool on Cannabis.net.
