Lotions are probably one of the most used beauty products, as it has many uses and benefits. Some use it to moisturize their skin; some go for anti-aging variants to combat its signs. Whatever their purpose is, lotions are essential for many and they have a bottle by their side.
Cannabis is a known relaxant and an effective antioxidant, and thankfully, there are many ways to consume this. One way is through Cannabis lotion, or Cannalotion which are THC-infused lotions. While most people use this product for muscle pain, it also has antioxidant and anti-aging properties. These two properties are the key things people look for when it comes to their creams and lotions.
Topical application might just be the safest way to ingest it, since not everyone wants to smoke or eat edibles. With topicals like Cannabis lotion, they won’t get the psychoactive effects, as it only interacts with the skin and not the bloodstream. You can get the benefits from the cannabinoids directly where you need it without running the risk of getting “high.”

Cannabis Lotion – More Than Just for Pain Relief
Medical Marijuana patients use THC-infused lotion mostly for muscle relief, anti-inflammatory, and anti-soreness. Nausea and cramps are also some symptoms that MMJ patients hope to combat with lotion. Cannabis-based topicals are often recommended for these, but it has quite a lot of cosmetic benefits as well.
When you ingest THC through your skin, you are removing the harmful risks from other methods. For example, if you smoke it you are exposed to carcinogens and run the risk of skin damage.
The primary ingredient seen in most THC-infused cosmetics like lotion is hemp seed oil, and it’s rich in THC, Omega-3 and Omega-6.
Research says that its cannabinoid content has antioxidant and anti-aging properties, which makes it an ideal ingredient for cosmetics in general.
Hemp Seed Oil: The New Fountain of Youth?
