Whether searching for relief from holiday stresses or recovering from a long day on the slopes, topicals can be a wonderful way to chase away aches and pains of all kinds. Check out these three highly effective concoctions of THC and CBD if you’re in need of some TLC this holiday season.
High Desert Pure Transdermal Rollerball
139.3mg THC per Package
153.6mg CBD per Package
Subtly scented with menthol and blood orange, it’s the aroma of this full-spectrum roller ball that catches our attention first. Though, after rolling this onto cramped and sore leg muscles, the relief after a long day of hiking was undeniable. After a brief massage, the topical rubs in completely, leaving no oily residue. With each application offering roughly 1.5mg of both THC and CBD, we can expect plenty of relief from this long-lasting topical.
Sacred Herb Medicinals Cannabis Roller Oil
112.2mg THC per Package
198.9mg CBD per Package
The folks at Sacred Herb do an alchemical job of combining Cannabis with olive, jojoba, and avocado oils. This silky mix is then accented with functional herbs and spices such as arnica, peppermint oil, cinnamon, and more. The result is a roll-on topical that has a pleasant tingle just seconds after this roller glides across your troubled muscles. Ideal for those deep, persistent aches, we’ve found relief with this product for everything from lower back pain to our overworked shoulders.
Medicine Farm Botanicals Cascadia Cannabis Balm
385mg THC per Package
413mg CBD per Package
16mg CBc per Package
This cooling Cascadia balm was inspired by the invigorating winds and flora of the Pacific Northwest. It’s created with a base of local beeswax, Cannabis, and hemp extract, and then fortified with whole herbs and flowers such as yarrow, lavender, and juniper berries. Medicine Farm finishes this extra-strength balm with eucalyptus, wintergreen and menthol crystals. The finished topical is ultra-smooth and an effective one-two punch for knocking out pain, working on the skin’s sensory response and cannabinoid receptors.
