Topicals to Reduce Pain & Inflammation
The body’s endocannabinoid system naturally produces cannabinoids to regulate a wide range of functions and maintain a healthy balance. CBD and THC communicate with CB1 and CB2 receptors to prompt a variety of cellular responses. Many CB1 receptors are found just under the skin, while CB2 receptors are mainly found in the immune cells of the peripheral nervous system. They are largely responsible for pain and inflammation.
Cannabis topicals stimulate these receptors to communicate with the brain and combat pain via the central nervous system. The infusion of THC, CBD or both can work quickly and effectively to block receptors that inform the brain to feel pain, helping relieve symptoms. Try topicals for psoriasis, eczema, itching, acne, joint pain, inflammation, headaches, to heal wounds and more. MediThrive Cannabis Dispensary is happy to help you determine the ideal cannabis-infused topical for your specific needs. We serve San Francisco & the Contra Costa County region.
