Rub it in, why don't cha? Cannabis topicals like balms, lotions, oils and salves should be in your cabinet! They are showing "remarkable results in healing skin wounds and abrasions, as well as easing muscular pain." 💪
The cannabis plant contains over 90 unique chemicals, known as #cannabinoids,
being the primary and best-known compound for obvious reasons, #cannabidiol
(CBD) is now recognized as the 2nd compound of significance.
The combo of CBD + terpenes (the molecules that gives weed its distinct scent), are what makes cannabis valuable in healing skin abrasions. 🚨 Before applying any topical products on broken or irritated skin, it is important to check whether they contain any harmful solvents or additives, including grain alcohol. Organic coconut oil + almond oil are widely considered to be safe.

may be helpful in treating #malignant
wounds. Patients have reported success with full extract cannabis oils when applied on to wounds caused by skin cancer or other illnesses. Like Rick Simpson Oil (RSO).
