SOME OF THE VERY MANY HEALTH BENEFITS
When marijuana is smoked, the lungs absorb the cannabinoids, the chemical compound produced by marijuana. The cannabinoids enter the blood stream and make their way to the brain. Inhaled cannabinoids are absorbed quickly and diminish quickly, which means that the high from smoking marijuana does not last very long.
Topicals work because of the natural cannabinoid receptors people have in their skin. Lotions and balms will not usually get through the blood stream but will stimulate receptors in the skin. This means that marijuana will give the same beneficial effects from the medicine without the euphoric effects of THC. Many people will consider this to be safer because it does not get a person high. This is false, topicals will usually not get through the blood stream but that doesn’t mean they can’t. If there is a large enough THC content and the oils are able to break through the blood stream it is possible for the person to get the same euphoric effects they would get from smoking it. Topicals are still to be used with safety and caution like any other marijuana product. Users should not operate any forms of vehicles or heavy machinery while on this medication because it can affect the person ability to drive or operate the machinery. If someone chooses to disregard these warnings, it can lead to injury, death, and/or fines and penalties.
People who consume cannabis in other ways, like edibles, must wait an hour to feel its effects, but will feel them for a longer period of time. This is because the stomach and the liver take longer to digest the cannabinoids than the lungs take to absorb them.
The Medical Marijuana Industry has become more diverse with Marijuana infused Topicals. In fact, marijuana topicals may change the way a lot of people consume marijuana.Topicals are lotions, balms, and oils that contain THC and CBD. Marijuana is now effective without smoking it or eating THC infused foods.
