North Americans are willing to spend millions of dollars every day for their skin. Antiaging creams, moisturizers, muscle pain relievers- to name a few- are found by the dozens in the average person’s washroom cabinet.
Our skin the largest and one of the most important organs that the human body has. It protects us every minute, of every day, from an array of harmful externalities. What most people don’t realize however, is that human skin is semi-permeable. This means that the chemicals that are being absorbed into our skin, are also being absorbed into our blood stream. This begs the question:
Do you really know what’s contained in these skin “care” products that we so often use?
Most of the common skin products used contain parabens, synthetic coloring, formaldehyde, toluene, and many other difficult to pronounce carcinogenic ingredients. Thankfully, there is a safer, more natural way to treat your skin; using cannabis derived topicals.
These work by activating CB2 receptors that are found throughout the body. The receptors are activated through the phytocannabinoids contained in the topicals. When these receptors are stimulated, it creates a pain relieving, soothing effect without the cerebral “high”. In other words, you get the pain relief your body needs without any mental alteration.
Many who suffer from psoriasis and eczema use cannabis topicals for relief from dry irritation. Athletes, avid hikers, and gym-rats alike will find that these topicals provide better muscle pain treatment than its synthetic competitors.
If you suffer from any of the symptoms above, try switching to this natural alternative. Your skin will thank you.
