Medical Marijuana Topicals: An Overlooked Product You Didn’t Know You Needed


When most people think of marijuana they think of the classics. Bud, joints or edibles come to mind. But there are actually many overlooked marijuana products that I bet you didn’t know you needed!


At Virginia Marijuana Card, our job is not only to be your go-to medical marijuana card provider but also to be a main source of information for you. The more information you have, the more confident you can be making decisions about your health and wellness. Knowledge is power and we are here to bring that to you today!


At Virginia dispensaries, marijuana comes in a variety of forms. There are many products that people skip over, unaware that these products could be the best treatment option for them. One of these overlooked products are medical marijuana topicals.


In today’s article, we will be going over what topicals are, how they are beneficial, what to look for and how you can get them in Virginia!


What are medical marijuana topicals?

So what are topicals anyways?


Medical marijuana topicals are marijuana-infused ointments. These can come in lotions, creams, oils or balms that can be lathered onto the skin directly to a location for pain relief.


Topicals are the perfect example of the progression of marijuana. Marijuana is not just limited to joints and getting “high.” With topicals you can get all the benefits of marijuana in a simple, non-invasive way!


What are the benefits of using medical marijuana topicals?

One reason why people love medical marijuana topicals is because you can truly localize your treatment. When you use other marijuana products like edibles or tinctures, you can’t pinpoint your treatment since the compounds spread throughout your whole body. With topicals, you can deliver treatment to the exact place where you feel pain, inflammation or soreness!


Another benefit of using marijuana topicals is that they have no psychoactive effects! This is a big deal to a lot of medical marijuana users. Some people don’t want to feel “high” when using marijuana. Topicals provide the perfect solution to getting all of the benefits of cannabis without any unwanted effects!


Topicals also can be beneficial for those who want to use medical marijuana in a more therapeutic manner. Consuming edibles or flower can feel a little too recreational for some people. Topicals are a great way to use marijuana without having to ingest or inhale anything at all!


What should I look for in topicals?

If you are ready to take a trip to your local dispensary to buy topicals, there are some things that you can keep in mind! Look for strains like Blueberry, Blackberry Kush and Permafrost or use cannabinoids such as THC, CBD or THCA.


Topicals can also come with essential oils as well! If you are looking for some extra pain relief look for wintergreen, clove or cayenne oils.
