The Benefits Of THC And CBD Topicals

Altitude Cannabis Dispensary offers customers online and at our two locations in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque a great selection of different types of cannabis and hemp products. While our flower, pre-rolls, vapes, and concentrates are always popular choices, using THC salves and CBD salves adds a different dimension of enjoying THC and CBD!

Using Topicals

THC salves and CBD salves and other topicals like hand soap and creams are applied on top of your skin. Although both full spectrum CBD and THC have tetrahydrocannabinol, when applied to the skin in salve, soap, balm, or lotion form, they shouldn’t have any psychoactive effects when applied in normal amounts and intervals. The THC or CBD would only be absorbed in the area you apply it to, and wouldn’t give any full body experiences.

It is important to check the potency of any THC salves and to consider the amount and frequency of use. When used in conjunction with other forms of THC, there can be a cumulative effect. 

Generally, both CBD and THC lotions, salves, and balms are applied directly to the skin over the affected area. Gently rub the salve into the skin, aiding in stimulating circulation throughout the area.

CBD salves and THC salves can be used post-workout, after a long day at work, or to help relax and relieve muscle tensions and pain throughout the body. Apply them throughout the day at your convenience to experience the benefits of THC and CBD!

Our teams at our Rio Rancho, NM, dispensary and our Albuquerque dispensary are here to help you find the right topicals for your health and wellness goals. Call us at 505-456-3500 for more information or send us an online message, and we will be happy to assist you.
