Gels, creams, and salves are just some of the topical cannabis or CBD products available from so many different brands and companies. These products are a huge fad these days, but do topical cannabis products actually work? Riley has the answer!
Hair follicles, sweat glands, cells- all of these structures on our skin are capable of making endocannabinoids. Since endocannabinoids always act locally, that means that the receptors are nearby as well.
CB1 and CB2 Receptors
Almost every call type contains CB1 and CB2 receptors. Because of this, when a topical cannabis product is applied to the skin it is indeed activating those receptors! This can help reduce inflammation, reduce localized pain, and reduce localized itching.
